6/22    chinese auto makers not so hot

        \_ I am a Chinese.  The sheer fact that they even have a domestic
           automobile, AND the fact that they are trying to sell it outside
           China amazes me... If you still think China is a closed market,
           go to China sometimes.  You may find that even Chinese with
           slightest sense of self-respect wouldn't buy a domestic branded
           car!
           \_ They've had domestic cars for a while.  Including the "Chery"
              a Daewoo (GM) Matiz rip-off.

              \_ The "Red Flag" brand has existed for a long while and is very
                 prestigious.

6/22    The "Center for American Progress" study on talk radio says that
        KQKE-AM is 24% progressive content.  Is this accurate based on anyone's
        experience?
        \_ Quantification of qualified criteria is a mug's game.
        \_ Well, for starters the tagline of the station is
           "Progressive Talk Radio"
        \_ You're misreading the table.  Those aren't percentages.  Those are
           weekday programming hours.

        \_ Is it your next suidide bombing target?
           \_ Just thought it looked cool--didn't know there was more than one
              of these being built--look NE to se the completed one.
              \_ Uhh, all I see is sand.  Lots and lots of sand.
                 \_ I see Dubai's artificial "palm tree" peninsula.  Well, two
                    of them.
                    \_ Cf. arguments that we should colonize the Gobi Desert
                       before we bother colonizing Mars.

              \_ The "Red Flag" brand has existed for a long while and is very
                 prestigious.
              \_ those doesn't count.  key components such as Engine are still
                 foreign made.
              \_ There are a few Chinese brands that are very big in South
                 America -- low prices and poor emissions standards make them
                 pretty attractive for buyers who can't afford a big western
                 prestige brand.  -John
           \_ Interestingly enough, in China Buick is considered a really hot,
              luxurious brand and a status symbol similar to a BMW or Merc in
              the States.  GM is doing much better in China than in the States,
              and I expect them to eventually become a mostly foreign company.
              \_ Cadillac in China probably has the same status as Buick.
                 Maybe it's because Buick and Cadillac used to be luxurious
                 brands in the US, which are then reflected in China after a
                 time lag.  Or maybe it's just pure marketing.
              \_ I kept telling my cousin in Shanghai that Buick is a piece of
                 shit... LOL
              \_ Buick may have the brand recognization which they don't
                 deserve, but American cars are still lag behind in terms of
                 sales figure and market share.  go figures.
              \_ Buicks are status symbols in Japan as well. I think it has
                 something to do with the car being so big, bloated,
                 unreliable, and completely unsuited to Japanese road design
                 that only a really rich asshole who doesn't need to care about
                 anyone else can/would bother to own/drive one. You can often
                 find them double-parked on two-lane streets in front of
                 pachinko parlors.
                 \_ Jeeps were the 4x4 king in Japan.  When I told my
                    counterparts in Japan that I drive a Jeep Cherokee back
                    home, they thought "Wow!", while the reason I bought a
                    Cherokee was that I couldn't afford a Nissan Pathfinder or
                    a Toyota 4-Runner.

        \_ I'd appreciate that you summarize the actual content next time.
           I'm not into rap, hip-hop, or whatever ghetto dance these
           African American kids are into, and it was a waste of time
           for me.
           \_ Is this a racist statement?
           \_ get a life.
        \_ Ghetto ghetto ghetto
           \_ I believe this is a matter of opinion
        \_ now you can be entertained while being mugged and raped!
