  Trump  Globalists  Media Stupidity

PeakStupidity had not been soldered into our local terminals of the internet wires back during the November US elections, so we did not share our varied opinions of Mr. Donald Trump at the time. We do not think he is the saviour of the country, or even the next Ronald Reagan, but he IS looking better all the time.

From the information we receive daily, and especially from Zerohedge.com (one of the most reliable non-fake/gov't news sources around) we really have come to believe that the President-Elect is NOT part of the status-quo establishment. We think that he intends to do good for the American people, and is not working for the globalist elites. It's not that we/he will necessarily get our/his way, but we'd got one man in place to start some changes. Here are some headlines and excerpts:

In Stunning Pair Of Interviews, Trump Slams NATO And EU, Threatens BMW With Tax; Prepared To "Cut Ties" With Merkel

Responses from Merkel, first one, then others in the German Gov't:

Merkel Says She Is Ready To "Fight A Generational Battle" With Trump To Preserve Liberal Democracy And Trade

Germany Slams Trump Criticism: Urges US To "Build Better Cars", Accuses Washington Of Causing Refugee Crisis

The foreigners are not our main enemy to begin with - the Germans can run their mouths, the Chinese can run their factories in 3 shifts, the Moslems can run their goats and women ragged until they submit to Islamic anal sex, and the Australians can put more shrimp on the barbie (wait, we like those guys!) all they want. It's the domestic enemies that have more power to destroy what's left of the US. This next one is about one domestic enemy organization:

In Scathing Attack, CIA Director Brennan Warns Trump To "Watch What He Says"

Great response from Donald Trump to a large portion of the domestic enemies, the lying fake, government media:

Trump Team Responds: May Move White House Briefings To Accommodate More Than Just "Media Elite"

We are so psyched by this stuff - it's phenomenal. I, personally, am glad to "live in interesting times" as I read about at the Happy China Egg Roll Station.

Listen, got no time for the excerpts and comments from us at this time - gotta real job. Editing in progress - more to come - may split up into a few posts.

They are only for the high end of the market, I think, Mr. Hillis. A mechanic friend, call him "Crazy Al" always tells me how much the parts cost - that is partially due to the lower volume, I guess, but he knows they make a killing off of the parts.

I think you're right about the Jap vehicles.

I have another post addressing the information form the link you are responding to, but I'm mainly writing about the whole "invite the world" nonsense of Reich-Chancellor Merkel.

I will watch your you-tube video later, frankhillis.

I'm not a world traveler, but I think the Germans making the claim we need to "Build Better Cars" don't know what they are talking about.

The EU may have free trade (or some negotiated version of it) within its borders, but the German auto industry does not have to face the kind of competition the US does, with German, Korean, and Japanese manufacturers having strings off access to it at present. There is a big difference in taking on Saab, Volvo, or Peugeot (they still around); or god help, a British roadster.

There is a test market of course. The rest of the world. And to my eyes the rest of the world made a decision a long time ago.

Look for some reason a German taxi (Mercedes) has cachet. You'll get your local strongman, or generic Saudi Prince driving one.

But the rest of the world voted with it's feet and selected things like the Tuk Tuk, http://battlefield.wikia.com/wiki/Tuk-tuk, or above all Toyota.

The British show Top Gear tried to "kill" a Toyota Hilux (don't think it was ever sold in the US; apparently just a garden variety small Toyota Pickup with a diesel engine). There are three parts to this series, I've put up a link to the first, though all are worth watching.


Anyway as an American my perception is Mercedes is way overpriced for what you get. To be honest many of our domestically produced vehicles now are basically Japanese cars with a different nameplate on them. (Ford Ranger when we still made light pickups, same as Mazda Pickup. For at least a decade or so before Ford pulled the plug on it.)

No f$%&ing way a Mercedes is as reliable or cheap to operate as one of those or a Camry.
