You're right, I am naive, I don't know how to spell Australia. Now this is how you use a Forum, your opinions are good. How about the rest of you? Now Jack, since you commented, here's my opinion.
The reason Trump is President is because the only person running against him was Hillary. The people spoke! President Trump isn't perfect but he's got this country running in the right direction. Unemployment is at an all time low, he created almost 4 million jobs, he negotiated with other countries, he signed an order calling for work requirements for welfare, he decreased government positions by 16,000 and I could go on and on. These accomplishments are benefiting all of us. He did not raise interest rates to 16%, he did not approve sub-prime lending, he did not authorize 100% financing for fico scores over 320. These were done by past President's and I'm happy with our present economy. What's President Trump done that's so bad; not being politically correct?
Looks like you know your history of Butte. That toxic lake is being dealt with. The Anaconda Company and Atlantic Richfield is a story for another day. Thirty years ago I moved from Butte to a city in another state looking for a job, just like many of Butte's residents. I still have ties in Butte and I really miss those elk hunts an hour away from home.
Jack, I will have to agree with you about US companies screwing up. I have some experience with that and you could add your big banks and auto insurance companies. Management in these large corporations are layered with managers and all the top dogs care about is making a profit for their stockholders. They really don't care about you as a customer, your just another dollar. I don't do business with big banks anymore. I'm sure you would agree that customer service is better and more personal when working with smaller companies. I'm not saying that the people working on the front line of these big corporations are not providing good customer service, it's the layers of management above them.
Now here's an experience that some of you won't like. I know some of you buy from MidwayUSA. I stopped buying from them because they added additional shipping charges on an item they had to back order. I paid for shipping charges up front and I felt that additional shipping charges were uncalled for. I buy from The Sportsman's Guide, Heartland America, Cheaper than Dirt, Natchez, CH Cadels, Pro-Mag and more. I have never paid additional shipping charges with any of them. You all need to stand up for what you believe in. If we put these companies on notice for better customer service it will make for a better buying experience for all of us. Stay tuned for the “Rest of the Story.”
