Benevolent Misanthrope: Marcus Aurelius: There is a large car staging area south of Philadelphia that looks much like these pictures.  Funny thing is, from one month to the next, all the cars have changed color, model, or have otherwise somehow been altered to hide the evidence of this dastardly scheme, most likely to make it look like they're simply on their way to somewhere else.

This conspiracy must be truly breathtaking in scale.

There was one on the tide flats of Tacoma when I lived there as well.  Just a warehouse for cars, basically.  Someone's bog sucks.


Look, man. Alls I know is that I checked it out on Google Earth one day, and a week later the cars are still there exactly as they were. It was even the same  time of day, despite the fact I checked it when it was midnight over there.

Clearly, this conspiracy breaks even the laws of time and space.

The writing on this website just keeps piling up.  Dozens of the same sentences just crammed together back to back and left to rot on the world's internets.

There is this huge warehouse a few miles from me, it has got to be at least a square mile in size. If you go into this warehouse you will see it is bulging with racks that go all the way up to the ceiling. And each of these racks are filled to the brim with every type of food item you can imagine. Canned peaches, yep it's there. Pickles, yep they are there. It goes on and on and on. And there are thousands and thousands of these warehouses across the country. My question is why do food manufacturers keep producing food 24/7 if we have these warehouses that are stocked with food just sitting there?

Hector Remarkable: You sheeple don't understand the magnitude of this conspiracy. When the time comes, these 'ghost' vehicles will be 'inhabited' by an army of alien drivers from the mothership that is currently orbiting on the opposite side of the Sun. Millions of hostile, levitating Chevy Cruzes will then bombard our major cities, dropping alien 'death-poison', that will not actually kill you, but render you speechless and cause your genitals to mutate. You wait and see.


That's actually pretty close to the other conspiracy theory I've seen about these lots, one which is stupider than this one.  One of Alex Jones' various idiot acolytes found a couple of these places on Google Earth and most of the cars appeared white because of some coverup the manufacturers apply for shipping.  So of course, they were UN cars being dropped off to aid Obama in the Big UN Takeover.

Wow, this article writer completely fails to understand basic capitalism.  Do they really think that car manufacturers would spend money to continuously build cars for which there is no demand?  Did the world go communist while I wasn't paying attention?

That, or this whole thing is bullshiat pulled out of someone's ass.

So, the theory is that (assuming you buy the assumption this is true) hoarding vehicles nobody wants is going to somehow affect the sales of vehicles people do want.

Apparently this alleged journalist thinks the auto companies are the DeBeers cartel.

Strange that in almost every picture the rows of cars are only two deep,allowing individual cars to be driven away without being blocked by others. Almost as if they expect individual cars to be driven away soon and don't want them blocked by others....

And storage areas next to ports? What could that mean? It couldn't possible mean that ships contain thousands of cars but once on land they are transported by trucks that can only carry eight per trip and so dispersal takes time, could it?

Linux_Yes: Brought to you by the same "supply and demand" rich dicks who own the world's economy and everything else.

Article writer saw some aerial shots of vehicle staging areas, and pulled a story completely out of his ass to describe what he's seeing. Next time read the thread before commenting.

Zerohedge really does pick some great financial topics, then, unfortunately, proceeds to analyze the shiat out of them.

Do you think they could analyze the shiat out of a constipated dog?  The poor thing hasn't crapped in 2 days


Give it Kaopectate and Ex-Lax at the same time. That'll confuse the shiat out of it.

Love that bit of derp at the end of GM importing vehicles from China.

Nevermind that GM exports from the US to China, and its locally produced models are different than what is sold here.

This writer is a farking moran.  He has no idea what he is looking at.  Auto manufacturers and shipping companies have huge mixing lots where they queue cars up for shipment out to dealers via train or truck.  Cars rarely go straight from the line to the dealer.  The cars are actually already sold to the dealer once it leaves the line.  I know this from working in the auto industry for years and years and years.

They're called staging lots. Factories own large chunks of land and park cars on them so the shipping companies/railroads/boats can move on to the next step. If said transit companies are delayed (like record snowfalls), the lots fill up and car companies rent extra space or wholesale at a slightly reduced price to dealers within short driving distances.

Right outside Toledo, there is a huge lot of Jeep Wranglers. Clearly no one is buying them because there is literally a 2 order cycle waiting list to get stock Wranglers for dealerships, despite the factory running 24 hours a day, 6 days a week on all lines.

Zerohedge reports on things it doesn't understand. Film at 11.

That was a strange article from Zerohedge.  Not once did they tie this to Obozo's Magic Money Printing Press.
