Thoughts on fighting the Machine

This weekend Susannah and I went to see Valkyrie, the new movie about
rebellion within Hitler's inner circle. The movie had received a
healthy dose of criticism, but we went to see it almost because of
that and came away very rewarded.

This tale (and even the telling of this tale) reminded me of the
loneliness of fighting the powers that be and the fortitude it takes
to maintain the fight.

At Local Motors, we often feel this way, that is to say, we feel as if
we are constantly fighting the power. Not the power of a competitor,
but rather the power of an entire industry and consumer base that has
only known one way of doing business.

I await the day that we can blow the cover off the industry and
reignite the passion for cars and car companies in America. We are
well on our way.

If you like passion for country and winning ideas from good-guys who
mean to change the world for the better, "don't listen to the crowd,
free your mind to live, go see Valkyrie, and buy a Rally Fighter!"

Go local!

What could be more fitting for Martin Luther King Junior Day?

I was not home on the 25th to sign for a delivery, so I need to know where my rolex replica sale was delivered to.

Why did you send me the same information from your original email to me. This is very poor customer cartier replica uk and unacceptable. Please follow up with tag heuer replica as my order was NOT delivered to me. If I do not receive my Rolex Replica Watches parcel within the next week, I expect a full refund. I have a problem cause the watch arrived and I had to refuse it cause they told me if I accept it, you have to go to court because it's illegal for imitation rolex replica sale they told me that the seller knows about this problem.
