Or rather, you hire on looks vs. ability and resume.

    Coupled with an "education" system that seems to teach almost nothing (see "superstar" Castro-Cortez, who has a cum laude degree from Boston U. in economics and international relations, but per many conversations/interviews demonstrates zero knowledge or understanding of either) but brainwashes--see algore's agitprop movie "An Inconvenient Truth"--in ways that would make the Soviets proud, you end up sabotaging your entire advanced civilization.
    If anyone thinks the alternatives are superior in some way, I'd like to hear the rational argument. Since it doesn't exist.

    Cadillac house is/was a symptom of this disorder. Melody and painball head, brainless entities given yooj support, are other symptoms of this dysfunction.

    Good bye and good freakin riddance to Cadillac House. Hopefully Jimmy Devil can get one of those emblems off the wall before the PC Bunch has them sent to the crusher.

    I’ve also noticed that businesses and the media no longer contact anyone. They “reach out to” them.

That is disappointing for me because it is says more about what isnít coming than what is. We knew we would be getting the five vehicles mentioned above and one of those, CT7, has been knocked down a rung already. Realistically only Escalade and XT7 are going to resonate outside of forums like this as CT4 and CT5 just arenít higher volume product or truly limited volume, prestige building offerings either at this stage. Th y are volume offerings that just donít sell in volume.

    There is nothing really wrong with that list in general but I donít know that I would go out of my way to advertise a new vehicle every six months unless something more ground breaking was coming.
    Wouldn't technically be "through" 2021, but if you count the XT4 from last year, it would get you to 6.

    Man what happened; I remember just a few short years ago, Cadillac moving to NYC was the smartest thing they had done in decades!?



    It's fun to wonder what other "100% - Foolproof - Can't Fail" Ideas are going to crash and burn?

    As a result of the 2014 move, sales in NYC went up... anyone? I bet they went down.

    Well, by jingo Ed, sales went up. Sales went down. I'm guessing a lot of those sales were to people who looked like painthead boy. Just a guess.

    And of course when you're dealing in micro-numbers, ANY bump is a yooj percent.

    There is no way to correlate the two, but let's say 100% of the gain was tied to the move and not the fact they introduced a new; Escalade, CTS, CT6 and XT5 in that period.

    3,000 Units over 4 years?

    In reality it is probably closer to 300 and many of them worked for Cadillac!

    Cadillac needs to just build good cars and SUVs. Build it and they will come as they say.

    All this NYC nonsense was nothing but noise and a distraction.
