The Mercedes Benz Sprinter van is an overcomplicated machine with a tiny little failure prone shit engine. The diesel engine is insanely complicated and requires MB dedicated diagnostic equipment to do anything. The diesel exhaust system and controls are failure prone and expensive.
The biggest problem with Mercedes Benz products is the MB dealership. Parts and service costs are extremely high.
The OM62 MB TD engine is made with substandard parts like cast rods, cast crankshaft, and an aluminum block system that does not control oil pressure well. The engine also has engine bolts that are one time us. Parts are proprietary and extremely expensive. In addition, the cast crank cannot be welded or machined and there are no oversized bearings. Hence it is a throw away motor. The diesel emissions control system is basically overpriced garbage.
At 158 horsepower, the 3.0 TD OM62 does not belong in a Sprinter Van. It belongs in the junkyard.
The body is excellent and huge, hence, the Sprinter simply needs a new power plant. That way, the need to use the MB dealer is completely eliminated. In addition, there would be copious power for pulling and better power in the passes.
Enter the 2018 5.3 Chevy engine with 6 speed auto. 360 horsepower with 23 MPG on the highway. Extremely simply emissions system.
The Broncos have been making due with the Shanahan style late round plug and play running backs by committee scenario forever it seems.
Denver Bronco fans have looked on with nausea as it relates to the Bronco RB corps. For a mighty long time. From Ronny Hillman to Selvin Young, the Broncos have seen more than their fair share of average NFL Runningbacks. Of course, sometimes they do well with an FA like Willis McGahee. Other times they release folks like Knowshon Moreno when they are ready to kill it the next season. Still, other times they recruit a Travis Henry. In reality, the Broncos have been plagued with average running backs, while other teams get athletic freaks like Akeem Hunt. We are still working on just winning the division. A Superback is part of the scheme.
Anderson and Booker could be the best running back duo the Broncos have had since Anderson and Bell.
CJ Anderson was the only saving grace when it comes to the running back situation during the last 4 seasons. In fact, CJ Anderson can turn it on when he is healthy and the run block scheme is working. Devante Booker looked way better in 2017 than 2016. In fact, he outperformed Isaiah McKenzie on special teams. With Jared Veldheer on the right side along with Dallas Goedert at TE and Booker becomes a solid weapon.
Because the Broncos picked up Case Keenum, and they have Paxton Lynch, the Broncos should look at Saquon Barkley in lieu of a QB.. Dude is a super athlete that reps 225 40 times and runs the 40 in 4.40 He could be the next Terrel Davis or Devante Freeman. An RB depth of Barkley, Anderson, Booker, and Henderson would be epic. This depth could be justified by Booker’s ability to play special teams. This means that McKenzie and Janovich might have to move on.
Barkley could be a “Superback” like Ed McCaffrey’s boy. “We bouts to play Bronco football!”
There was a funk hanging over the Bronco receiver corps in 2017. It needs an exorcism and a paradigm change. Barkley, Goedert, and Washington change the current stagnate construct for the better.
Should Sanders regress to a 500 yard WR, the jury will come to a verdict. The Broncos need a second round WR. The 3 Amigos 2.0….
For many, social media has replaced TV. the internet and social media have basically destroyed information and advertising vehicles like the phonebook and newspaper. Today, the internet is eroding the cable TV market as well. Instead of watching national news programs that add a twist of liberal yellow press propaganda, many just want the news in a few paragraphs void of conditioning or advertising.
Today, the entire infrastructure of the liberal yellow press are attacking entities like Facebook and Google. Facebook is considered the “Old people’s ap!” Older people vote in elections, so the liberal yellow press wants older people to actively censor FB because it is an effective propaganda venue.
The Liberal yellow press is elevating the attacking of our 2nd Amendment rights by children in an attempt to get younger people to vote against older people’s political positions. In addition, they are now seeking to channel the gay rights movement towards the gun rights issue.
We have never seen anything like this where traditional yellow press entities and liberal political groups employ a massive spectrum political campaign that attacks entire social media constructs. They want to pull independent voters away from social media so they cannot be conditioned by others to conservative values/.
The Stormy Daniels 60 minutes interview was conducted in concert with Hillary Clinton’s diatribe on women voting for Trump because of their husbands. Then they sought Facebook association and inclusion because of Trump FB advertising in 2016.
The liberal yellow press and the Democratic Socialists are now seeking to indoctrinate children via extreme propaganda techniques. They are now wanting to condition children in the school system like Apple conditioned children to only want $800 I-phones in lieu of a $200 Motorola G5 plus. hence, the liberal yellow press is now focusing on 15-year-olds in preparation for the 2020 presidential elections. They figure that as the baby boomer dies off, they can dominate the political landscape by conditioning children.
We can already see how liberals have destroyed Christianity in our school system. They then introduced gender dysphoria to Kindergarteners. It is clear that the education system wants to indoctrinate children to liberal policies every single step of the way.
Whether the liberal agenda is good or evil, the reality that they are targetting children for political conditioning and the application of Goebbelseque multi-generational propaganda techniques is heinous. Our public school system now wants to churn out gender role confused identityless spiritually bankrupt student clones that can be manipulated into destroying the Bill of Rights. The school system is now treating our children like cattle. Education has now given way to political conditioning
We are seeing an all-out war between social media and traditional media for the propaganda throne.
Violent video games along with the information age have changed human value structures. Large corporate entities like Apple know the value of conditioning and branding the student body with free I-pads etc. Now they are expanding that propaganda machine to manipulate the branding of social media entities. The liberal propganda machine is taking a multigenerational approach to political indctriantion using the Apple model.
The economy collapsed under the last Republican president. Under George W. Bush, both the housing market and the stock market imploded. It took the American workers ten years to rebuild the economy.
So, the Democratic Socialists run Hillary Clinton the lying and conniving political whore. Republicans, select Donald Trump after a year-long Republican primary debate season that was simply heinous to watch.
Trump says he will drain the swamp and then votes for all things Schumer while massively cutting the Corporate tax rate and doubling the Standard Deduction. As a result, the CBO is now saying that the 2018 deficit will be over a $trillion.
Next, Trump starts a trade war while allowing the FED to raise interest rates.
Trump is setting up America’s 401K system for a Wall Street harvest and an economic downturn. He seems to be sabotaging everything that Americans have worked for over the last 10 years.
Trump is sabotaging the Republican party and rewarding Wall Street
Trump’s approval rating will hit 10% as the Stock Market tumbles.
Check out how much better looking and wholesome Gary Johnson’s girlfriend is than Melania Trump? Plus she probably did not sell her ass back in Slovenia.
Thornton Fleming Brodhead would serve under Franklin Pierce, his cousin by during Mexican American war. He would also serve with Isaac Stevens the first territorial governor of the Washington Territory. They would be engaged in battle at the Battle of Contreras, Churubusco, and Chapultepec, along with the fight for Mexico city itself. Both would be breveted for bravery. Brodhead would become a Captain and Stevens would become a Major. The Mexican American War would establish a friendship between Franklin Pierce and Isaac Stevens, and possibly Thornton Fleming Brodhead
After the Mexican American War was over, populating our Manifest destiny began in earnest. When Franklin Pierce was elected president, Isaac Stevens was nominated to be the first governor of the Washington Territory.
Executive Office, March 17, 1853.
To the Senate of the United States:
I nominate Isaac I. Stevens, of Massachusetts, to be governor of the Territory of Washington.
Of course, Senator Richard H. Brodhead would vote in favor of Isaac Stevens etc.
During the beginnings of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln would ask Thorton Fleming Brodhead to raise the 1st Michigan Cavalry. He and his Wolverines would be among the first to come to the aid of Washington DC in the face of a growing Southern threat to the city.
Isaac Stevens would also be called up and promoted to the rank of Brigadier General.
Brodhead was commissioned as Colonel and commander of the 1st Michigan Volunteer Cavalry on August 21, 1861. He was mortally wounded leading his men to the charge during the 2nd Battle of Bull Run in August 1862, dying a few days after the battle. He was posthumously brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers, for “gallant and meritorious services”, which was back dated to August 30, 1862.
George Armstrong Custer would take command of the 1st Michigan later that year.
Robert E. Lee would have to ride through the mounted ranks of the 1st Michigan to accept terms of surrender at Appomattox.
The only thing Donald Trump will drain is the 401K system.
The FED is raising rates because of the so-called strong Trump economy. Of course, once interest rates rise, housing starts collapse with the loss of wealth effect. In addition, investors that lost most of the 401Ks under GW Bush will look to retain their artificially bloated stock market wealth by selling off.
Donald Trump signaled to Wall Street that there will be a harvesting of the American 401K system when he started a tariff war with China. In addition, Trump is not bothering to lower deficits via smaller government. In fact, he let Schumer mount him like a dog in heat. The latest budget does not drain the swamp, it kowtows to it. Hence, Trump’s irresponsible tax cuts and Obama style penchant for spending will create serial trillion dollar deficits. All of these measures are designed to ignite the final bounce of the GW Bush economic collapse and the Obama era FED tools of low prime rates, toxic asset repurchase, and continuous quantitative easing. The Stock Market is primed for a massive 1987 style sell-off. Of course, the American workers are the fall guys.
Americans that make the mean family income will use Trump’s $24,000 Standard deductions for the household items and better nutrition. They will not invest in a Stock Market Bubble. So, they Stock Market is subject to interest rate increase and the Trump Trade War along with Trump deficits that rival Obama. Once the Stock Market tanks, construction will follow a little later.
In reality, the Trump Stock Market Bubble is basically a bubble on top of the Obama Stock Market Bubble. The folks that get out the soonest then retain other people’s wealth.
Trump is colluding with Wall Street, so the big Wall Street firms can make huge commissions and sell America short. This is the largest orchestration of wealth redistribution in history.
The Stock Market will have to have an adjustment because it is overvalued.
During almost the entire two terms of the Obama administration, the FED ran monetary and economic policy. Obama’s continuous quantitative easing handicapped economy and low-interest rates drove both the housing market and the stock market. It also allowed the Federal Treasury to sell off high-interest bond national debt to the FED. Presently, the $21 trillion in National debt has an interest payment of approximately 2%. Compare this to FED rates and Federal T-Bill rates during the Carter administration. Now, if Fed rates go to even Clinton era levels of interest, the National Debt interest payments begin to explode.
Obama inherited GW Bush’s collapsed economy and wars of choice. He then went on to become a warmongering Bush Clone as well as a big government ass kisser. Meanwhile, he ran up $10 trillion in National Debt in only 8 years. Had the FED not lowered the prime and purchased high interest-bearing Treasury notes, the interest payment on the National Debt would be almost as much as SS outlays.
Donald Trump’s “Art of the Deal” as it relates to the presidency is to continue the Obama and Bush legacies of spending. In addition, he is compounding the growth of the National Debt by signing off on a massive $24,000 Standard Deduction increase and the lowering of the corporate tax rate. If the economy does not respond to these tax rate changes, the yearly deficits will go back to the Obama era’s serial $1 trillion. The Trump trade war along with increases in the prime rate could exacerbate a stock market sell-off and kill the wealth effect that the American economy now enjoys
The idea that the FED can raise interest rates when the economy improves is a farce. Donald Trump’s inept economic policy will probably add $4 or $5 trillion to the National debt in just 4 years. In fact, the Federal government is on track to add another $10 trillion in National Debt within 8 years. The FED rate will have to be maintained at low-interest rates or the interest payment on the National Debt hits a $trillion a year.
As far as Donald Trump, he is no conservative. He is not an economic messiah either. Hell, he is simply an Obama/ Bush clone that does not know what he is doing. The Liberals should love him because he is an idiot president. The private sector is completely different than the money sucking Federal Leviathan. Trump’s vanity and private sector prowess or colliding with the reality of big government, and Donald Trump is on the losing end of the stick. It is clear that he is not cut out to be president. As it is, he aint draining the swamp or doing a damn thing. He should use his sexual escapades with a porn whore and resign.
Of course, he is now setting up Wall Street so they can short the Dow and harvest the artificial growth of America’s 401K system. His efforts and economic incompetence will kill off the Republican brand as it relates to the presidency.
Trump bit off more than he can chew. The Federal Leviathan suffers from a terminal bureaucratic sickness. It will be interesting to see if he himself sells off when the Stock Market starts it’s 1987 style bed shitting?
Meanwhile, Trump is firing everyone and hiring hardcore neocons in preparation for another war. The most epic bait and switch candidate of all time..
The Democratic Socialists and their liberal yellow press brethren are now recruiting children to attack the 2nd Amendment. It started with poddy training the school system and allowing men with wigs, fake tits, and razor stubble to use the little girl’s room. The agenda then expanded to gender confusion basic training for primary school children. Now, they are employing children to attack the Bill of Rights.
Religion and treating others as one would want to be treated has been replaced with immorality, heinous social stratification behavior and violence.
What is really going on is the Democrats are continuing their practice of “no tragedy should go to waste!” After Sandy Hook, Obama used that tragedy to run interference for the Benghazi lie. Now they are exploiting Parkland for voter recruitment given that young people simply do not vote. make no bones about it, the DNC and the liberal yellow press are behind the recruitment effort in order to bolster the voter roles for the midterm elections.
Its funny, Hollywood condones and celebrates gun violence in every single movie they make. In addition, the video games that children are addicted to are ridden with violence. The media plays up military violence for ratings as well. Just ask Wolf Blitzer when he stands in front of the bombs going off in Baghdad. Sex and violence sell, whether it is Trump doggie styling Stormy Daniels, suckingJohn Bolton or Isis getting blown away. Moreover, the Federal government, the Bush/Trump Neocons, and the Obama/Clinton style Democratic Socialists love to use military violence in lieu of diplomacy. In fact, they loved to use drone strikes and the torturing of non- combatants.
In our school systems, children treat other children with insane levels of cruelty. Many of us remember being bullied every single day on the bus to and from school or during lunch and recess. We remember being humiliated in front of others or sucker punched in the hallway. We remember how the social elites in the school would constantly ridicule and laugh at those they felt were weird. They ridiculed and socially tortured some into psychotic behavior. They engage in cyberbullying and make social media attacks that drive children to suicide. Then they march in favor of gun control when the same kids they mentally abuse are driven to madness and extreme social alienation and retaliate with a gun. Meanwhile, black on black crime goes unabated in our inner city. They think that gun control will fix the symptoms that plague our society and the school environment.
Today, in states that have legalized marijuana, it is somewhat illegal to own a gun. If one has a medical marijuana card, one cannot legally buy a gun. Hence, it is not far off to infer that if one smokes recreational marijuana, one cannot buy a gun. In order to identify those that use marijuana, gun control advocates would then expand surveillance on individuals via marijuana registries and social media surveillance. So, not only will gun advocates seek to obliterate the 2nd Amendment, they will violate the 4th Amendment to do so. Of course, it is morally ok to drink a fifth of vodka every day and still have an AK47?
The Democratic Socialists are now employing Pol Pot re-education camp tactics on school-aged children in preparation for the 2018 or 2020 elections. They are recruiting children into destroying the Bill of Rights so they can continue their march to a socialist state. It is amazing that Democratic Socialists are all in when it comes to fetal genocide and executing millions of babies in the womb but then engage in the tactics of Pol Pot to exploit school shootings for political power.
Sure, school mass shootings must be stopped. We can do this by enacting strict non -bullying policies in our school systems, employing classroom safe rooms, automatic locking hallway and classroom door systems, along with armed security guards.
If the Democratic Socialists and pseudo-Republican neocons are not stopped, they will expand the “Patriot Act” to include domestic surveillance of households with children. They will use social media and cell phones to monitor for gun ownership, drug usage, and anything they deem of value. Everyone will be subject to surveillance without due process. Donald Trump has already stated that the police state should be able to confiscate guns without due process. If Jeff Sessions has anything to do with it, your precious AR-15 will be confiscated if you are caught on social media smoking a joint.
It is sad that the liberal yellow press and gun confiscation advocates are using our children against us. Soon, they will be” Fedayeen Saddam” like surveillance entities in every neighborhood scouring the internet for behavior that is counter to the Democratic Socialist re-education agenda.
I was 10 years old when I attended an NRA gun safety course. We learned to respect guns. Today, the media, the liberal yellow press, and Hollywood are infecting our children’s minds with a constant diet of heinous violence. They are the reason why America’s children do not respect life and see it as an extension of a violent video game. Now, they are using the same children that they have conditioned to violence to attack our Bill of Rights. What a catch 22.
Elwood needs to trade his 2018 1st round draft pick for a 1st rounder in 2019 and a second rounder in 2018.
The Broncos do not have the money to draft Orlando Brown anyways. Besides, the dude can only rep 225 a paultry 14 times. Orlando Brown and his pathetic upper body strength will get drafted by someone else. But, who on earth would want to pay Orlando Brown twenty million dollars a year when he would regress physically in the offseason? Enter Jared Veldheer. Jared is already a consistent OT that is fully assimilated into the NFL weight training and conditioning program. Even the punter reps out more than Orlando Brown.
Anyways, Elwood picked up Jared Veldheer to keystone the left side of the offensive side. In the scheme of things, this would be considered a better short-term or even long-term fix to the Bronco O-line. This also signals that the Broncos are not too enthused with Menelik Watson’s ability to stay healthy. Hence, Bolles would move to the head of the depth at right offensive tackle. I am looking forward t seeing Garret beat down Kahlil Mack and trample him into the sod.
The FA signing of Veldheer suggests that Elwood is all in with the Mormon Monster on the right, given that Veldheer is a left side veteran. Bolles on the right turns Devante Booker, the raving madman, into a psychotic 1200 yard beast. Combined with a big and strong TE and The Denver right side turns into a run machine. Of course, this frees up the pass after believable play action. I can envision DT down the sideline with a clear shot.
Elwood could even dare to pick up another big OT in the draft as well, however, if Heureman and Butt cannot cut it, well then, let us look at Dallas Goedert. I believe that would fix run block issues and allow for a TE that can catch the ball over the middle or down the field and lay waste. This frees up DT and Sanders or Booker across the line of scrimmage etc.
As it is, Elwood and the kubster just neutralized Kahlil Mack.
Many of us thought Elwood was out of his mind when he gave Von Miller Superbowl QB money. In fact, he was generous to several other players while the rest of the Bronco’s roster was relegated to entry-level NFL wages. That cannot bode well in the locker-room.
Elwood was forced to get rid of a pro bowl cornerback to make room for QB Case Keenum. In 2018, the Broncos have the best draft position ever, but Elwood cannot afford to pay a 1st round draft pick? What a catch 22.
Elwood will have to trade away his 2018 1st round pick in exchange for a 2019 1st round pick or a 2nd and 3rd in 2018. He needs to get on the phone.
Von Miller will have to renegotiate his 2019 money or the Broncos should simply trade him away or release him and take the hit. He should talk with Wade Phillips and see if he will take Miller’s remaining contract in 2019.
2019 will be the year that several high paid Broncos will have to be released or renegotiated.
In reality, Elwood screwed the Broncos when they agreed to pay Von Miller $114 million.
remember when Shawn Phillips got 10 Sacks for 1 million?
