re: Was the Betsy DeVos hearing really a trainwreck? - cahoots
[quote]How qualified do you have to be to run a Dept that should not exist?[/quote] Even if the goal is to reduce the department's influence, you still want someone who can articulate an opinion. Putting a dull person is never the answer, especially with the wide range of talent available for a p...

re: General Motors set to announce $1B factory investment, new jobs in US - cahoots
Dude, GM has been pumping billions into plants for years now. [quote]Since June 2009, GM has announced U.S. facility investment of approximately $16.8 billion. About $11.4 billion of that has come since the 2011 UAW-GM National Agreement. In total, these investments have created 3,650 new jobs an...

re: General Motors set to announce $1B factory investment, new jobs in US - cahoots
The article is confusing. It looks like GM is still going to build some Cruze models in Mexico. And it's not clear whether any new jobs are being created in the U.S. [quote]General Motors will announce a $1 billion investment in its factories that will create or keep around 1,000 jobs, a person ...

[quote]Bc they aren't building a plant in Mexico to sell BMWs to Mexicans.

re: BMW "not budging" on Mexican plant - cahoots
Here's what I would say to Trump: BMW already builds over 300,000 cars per year in South Carolina, which is roughly equivalent to the total BMW sales in the US. Some of those US-produced cars are exported, and some Chinese and German-made BMWs are imported, but BMW is still making/selling cars a...

re: BMW "not budging" on Mexican plant - cahoots
Agree, Trump is intelligently going after the low hanging fruit for good publicity. We'll save some American factory jobs here and there, but it's an exercise in futility. Robot technology is expanding rapidly. I went to the BMW plant in Munich a few years ago. Barely any humans touch the car when i...

re: When the ‘Enlightened’ Left Doesn’t Get Its Way, Expect Riots and Death Threats - cahoots
Dude, I don't know what the frick's gonna happen under Trump. His Supreme Court list is clearly very conservative. On the other hand, he sorta kinda thinks gay marriage is ok. I'm not convinced of his position either way. Are you? ...

[quote] Trump is the first person to become President while supporting gay marriage where was this outrage against Obama in 2008?[/quote] C'mon. He said that he "is fine" with the same sex marriage decision, and then he's rattled off lots of super conservatives for Supreme Court picks. ...

re: Trump vows ‘insurance for everybody’ in Obamacare replacement plan - cahoots
[quote] He said his goal is for everyone to have insurance. He didn't say his goal was for the government to provide everyone with insurance. This thread, and the linked article, is largely overblown.[/quote] "We're going to have insurance for everybody...There was a philosophy in some circles t...
