  • Harley and Economic Propaganda

    The recent news has Harley-Davidson complaining about tariffs and the difficulties it causes for their profit. This is pure economic propaganda espoused by the company and the never-Trumpers.

    Harley is losing market share and has declining profit because THEY REFUSE TO LOOK AT THE MARKET. It’s simple, does Cadillac still make the awesomely huge pimp-mobile El Dorado? Is Ford moving away from sedans? See how this goes? Look at your market and adjust to what sells. Harley makes an obnoxiously loud, heavy, expensive motorcycle that less and less people want. The Boomers are the last generation who will buy that bike at those numbers. I rode motorcycles for years and refused to own a Harley. Too heavy, too cumbersome, too expensive for what you get, and the owners tend toward being obnoxious look-at-me weekend warrior assholes who had to have loud pipes to draw attention to themselves and their shiny rattle. I would regularly put on 10k miles a year. That’s a lot for a motorcycle. The Harley riders rarely wave at anyone else other than other Harley riders. All other non-Harley motorcyclists wave to each other tho, as is custom. This myopic attitude is reflected in the management at Harley as well.

    SO, does Harley adjust? Will they make a motorcycle to compete with the Japanese, English, and Germans? No, they won’t. They will take the arrogant way out and end up in bankruptcy because they can’t see that making an El Dorado will not sell in a market of fast and stylish CUV’s. I don’t think Harley is capable of seeing the market, partly because of an incredibly overblown ego and partly because, well…obnoxiousness, arrogance, and ignorance.

    Don’t blame Trump, you chuckleheads…look in the mirror and look at your market.

    It’s as if Dorian’s buddy, Jello and East Bay Ray saw AOC and the Socialist coming.

    Holiday in Cambodia
    Dead Kennedys

    So you been to school
    For a year or two
    And you know you’ve seen it all
    In daddy’s car
    Thinkin’ you’ll go far
    Back east your type don’t crawl

    Play ethnicky jazz
    To parade your snazz
    On your five grand stereo
    Braggin’ that you know
    How the niggers feel cold
    And the slums got so much soul

    It’s time to taste what you most fear
    Right Guard will not help you here
    Brace yourself, my dear:

    It’s a holiday in Cambodia
    It’s tough, kid, but it’s life
    It’s a holiday in Cambodia
    Don’t forget to pack a wife

    You’re a star-belly sneech
    You suck like a leach
    You want everyone to act like you
    Kiss ass while you bitch
    So you can get rich
    But your boss gets richer off you

    Well you’ll work harder
    With a gun in your back
    For a bowl of rice a day
    Slave for soldiers
    Till you starve
    Then your head is skewered on a stake

    Now you can go where people are one
    Now you can go where they get things done
    What you need, my son:.

    Is a holiday in Cambodia
    Where people dress in black
    A holiday in Cambodia
    Where you’ll kiss ass or crack

    Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot

    And it’s a holiday in Cambodia
    Where you’ll do what you’re told
    A holiday in Cambodia
    Where the slums got so much soul

    So, it’s 1900 for me, but 0700 for the rest of my timezone. I was pointed toward a local dive bar by the night crew at the hospital. It’s called The Village News…and they open at 0700. I’ll go down and have one hen head back to bed for one more night shift.

    Just about every town has a bar with a “Mill License” that keeps odd hours for the shift workers. They are usually great little dives.

    Will report later.
