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/

A Phillies fan had to be taken to the ER after being hit in the face with a hot dog shot from the Phanatics hot-dog cannon.

Seriously.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

USSC ruled that states can compe online retailers to collect sales tax on their behalf even if said retailer does not have a physical presecne in that state. I'm not surprised by that and I think it makes sense. Presumably the ruling is clear enough to make clear where the tax is paid (I assume it's...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

If you're looking for investors, let me know, because that sounds like a winning investment to me.

And, when the countries south of our boarder send us people, they are not sending their best .... programmers. You'll need to outsource that to India or Eastern Europe.
