Re: Politics

Automation is a bigger threat to our workforce than foreign labor. Much bigger. Coal mining jobs, steal manufacturing jobs, car manufacturing jobs - most of those jobs are going the way of the Dodo. Along with cashiers, truck drivers, and even a lot of engineering type jobs. We are rapidly heading t...

Re: Politics

The irony of his complaints is there are plenty of "foreign" cars built here in the US. BMW is heavily invested in the US market. But, you'd never know that listening to Trump. Maybe he knows something I don't but it seems really odd we are cozying up with countries that despise us and pis...

Re: Politics

I guess it depends on how you define "unfair". We seemed to be doing just fine with Europe. Trump seems to think that trade is a zero-sum game, and if we aren't exporting more than we import we are "losing". He also seems to be angling to bring back manufacturing jobs to the US, ...

Re: Politics

The EU and India have officially joined China with putting in tariffs on goods coming from the US. Trump says if the EU doesn't lift these new tariffs he's going to target European car manufacturers and put a tarrif on them that basically renders them unsellable in the US (something like 25%). He is...

Re: Politics

No idea how that happened. It's inexecusable. Regarding the drugging of kids - that is not the result of bad hiring. That was a decision that came from somewhere. People making $10/hour didn't show up with expensive drugs to give to kids to keep them contained. That was someone up high making a deci...

Re: Politics

Sorry to double post, but one other point on this: I think what the Trump administration did here was immoral and inhumane. But, I don't believe for one second that the Trump team was looking to have children abused or was more likely to abuse children than the Obama administration. If that's what y...

Re: Politics

Really in general. I knew there was a abuse and neglect previously. One of the issues raised about what was happening is the same facilities that had been caught abusing kids in the past were being utilized again and people should expect the same thing to happen. I think the reality is when you have...

Re: Politics

If that bit about deaths and restraints is accurate, people should be in jail. Other than that, is your point of posting that some kind of defense to drugging these kids? What she described in 2014 was unacceptable and people should be held criminally accountable for it. I'm not sure what that has t...

Re: Politics

U.S. centers force migrant children to take drugs

I'd like to say I am shocked by this revelation but, really, I am not. I expected no less. I can't wait to hear the defense to this.

But, don't worry, because, as usual, Trump is only hiring the best people/
