    NO Las Vegas for me. Dad lives there. only way I be there is if I win a lotto ticket otherwise I am to poor to lose several hundred dollars just for fun. Besides I cannot see the cards and the #$%$ table my eye sight is even worse...The #$%$ table was my favorite game, I was better at #$%$s than blackjack and i never liked the slots. Had spun the roulette wheel but that's only a 15 minute game or you get in trouble. My ex partner dying of cancer in Aug 2000 on on the #$%$ wheel same number twice and was arguing with a black man on the second same number bet that he won...Had to drag him away from roulette after 20 minutes otherwise he would of left the table losing instead of a winner. My friend, ex partner was good at 21. Still, dropped several thousand thou...

  • the writers claim can't be done Number one the plant died during the era of the rise of Japan(80's at the time Japan owned most of the USA scape yards and was making steel from scrap. Next the writer claims old technology, what does the guy think we will build new plants with old technology? what a false lie or failure of understanding. Next china and japan and industrial world labor costs are about equal to ours now;thus why they are heading to Mexico and Vietnam and etc. How can America buying American steel for infrastructure violate trade deals?(If that's so then China and others couldn't build their infrastructure with their steel as an American fir sure be smart enough to build steel plant where they could make steel cheaper than china)...Nonsense, the writer wrote. If they do not want tariff then they must accept imports NO MORE ONEWAY street in favor of other nations over the USA...The Big picture is an USA company leaving America and planning to sale it's good back into USA will have to think twice. Having it made in America would not add to purchase price at retail because we know the imported stuff is not discounted for if it were we could buy the stuff for the same price Chinese pay for it in their country. Sheesh, i bought silk ties in HONG KONG FOR A $1.50 off a street vendor and they sold in the USA between $70.00 and $100.00.....Of course that was when labor was really cheap in china. The point why Trumps position can work is most of our trading partners labor costs are as HIGH as ours is in the USA today ...I am no longer up on it but we used to support china getting in the WTO in the 1980's it is a Big deal! We even have some bad trade deals with Europe...What's happen is we let the world get away with taking out heavy industry in exchange for the USA selling IT(software computers movies). The stuff those countries were not making at the time. And we made deals for the USA farmer(big) for trade; the concession was selling U.S. subsidize farm good

    An important U.S. high-tech manufacturer is shutting down its American operations, laying off hundreds of workers and moving sophisticated equipment now being used to make critical parts for smart bombs to the People's Republic of China [PRC], Insight has learned""

    ""Clyde South was a negotiator for the United Auto Workers Local 662 representing the workers at Magnequench when the consortium began negotiating to buy the company in 1995. In an interview with Insight, South says that worker concern about PRC influence over the consortium led to an "agreement with GM" that the plant would remain in Anderson for at least 10 years According to South, the buyers made the same agreement with the union, but since he had doubts about their intentions he took his concerns to Washington. Warnings fell on deaf ears. In August 2001, the sixth year of the 10-year agreement, South's distrust was validated when the consortium's managers "told us they intend to close the plant" and eliminate roughly 400 jobs.""

    Moving work to China from Boeing's plane-production stronghold in the U.S. Pacific Northwest would represent a bold step for the Chicago-based company, which so far has set up one full assembly line outside Washington state, in South Carolina.

    But the move would be in line with increased global sourcing of aerospace parts and supplies. Foreign contracts and operations are seen as helpful in winning fierce sales competitions with European rival Airbus Group NV.

    Airbus is due to inaugurate this weekend its first U.S. final assembly line, in Mobile, Alabama. The $600 million factory, which sports a large U.S. flag, allows Airbus to lay claim to employing American workers, as foreign automakers did after building U.S. plants.

    Airbus, with major manufacturing in Toulouse, France, also has final assembly lines in Hamburg, Germany, and Tianjin, China.

    Boeing also has relied on foreign suppliers to help cement sales relationships. Three Japanes

    Trumpf and His Polls

    I'll try being objective.
    I thought Trump replace him. That's what I herd when he was let go.
    I would not worry about Trump's campaign money.(only for political zealots ,IOM)
    I again would say that's Zealots worries.
    Trump overseas: Trump stated he was supporting his son as it was his son's project ceremonies. Trump stated he did not play golf but would of like too. ""Trump stated his political opponents showed a picture of him two years prior swinging golf club.""( Trump stand he was gone barely 4 hours it was a one day thing including travel time)..((Public relations because Democrats miss-represent and miss reported my statement)).

    I would say A-list celebraties are one of the following: Supported by an Global elite Media, Maybe brain washed blind over no borders receive favors from Dem Party, and follow the same part line that's weaken America.

    I never herd trump tried to raise funds from foreigners It is illegal and I bet it is another hack false narrative pace by those supporting Hilary as clearly hilary taken foreign support dollars through the Clinton foundation. (why for Rich foreigner's need to give charity thru clinton foundation when they could give directly to charity AND DO!

    Backfire news. Fake overseas coverage(golf). Judge(does have the appearance of conflict of interest which MSNBC failed to cover).

    Hand full of republicans : Those that do not support Trump are infavor of the same failed policy and lies which they and the Democrats have been telling Americans for years.

    I have like every speech I have watch of Trump, almost.

    Now think what Hillary stands for? Same as EU, Soros and world Globalist whom want world government sooner( by 2100) and it likely will come someday. Think, it would lead to world debt with at some point would fail.
    Then there be no place on earth to run to. Irish famine , they ran to USA.

    IF there are open borders then the USA will soon cease to exist. It is fact happens every time in History.

  • Yes, can we imagine Nixon having an private email server. Receiving classified Documents because you know Administration Officials and Presidents do get em all the time. Can you imagine Nixon using a blackberry the NSA says you cannot use. Can you imagine Nixon not using the approved NSA blackberry device. Can you imagine Nixon having a charitable foundation which receives money and then he grants em War Planes. Can you imagine Nixon with a son in law (whom has hedge fund) and trades on inside Government information such as what is Germany thinking....They would of hung Nixon much less impeach him.

    How do you get to post such a long post? Do you have special favors from yahoo? Smile...But really I cannot post anything that long.
    On the first settlers the socialist experiment was a disaster and that's why they were given their own plots...Talk about rewriting history...

    The elite GOP and DEM are on the same page today. Example, ted Cruz's wife on the CFR voted to have open borders between Canada USA and mexico. IS THIS NOT WHAT President Obama and The Canadian leader went to Mexico for this LAST WEEK? hello, there will be no USA anymore if this continues ...THEN WHOM WILL SAVE THE WORLD? I cannot believe our public is so brain washed that they believe what they are told illegal immigrants is not a problem in fact lets open the border to all even if they appose out government and Constitution...Call me what ever but """Islam is an Government Religion by Definition""" How is that wanting to become an American? Where does our Constitution say Religion and State can combine? Why do Americans become ISIS terrorist: because they attend Mosque and listen to cleric's whom teach the EXACT text of the Koran, that's how....hello?

    Thanksgiving, never thought of it much except that the settlers were elated to have plenty to eat and was having a FEAST with Their new Neighbors the American Indians...I think it is appropriate to have a day which celebrates having plenty and sharing with people whom are not like you.

    I know nothing from empirical knowledge of the 70% tax. However, to state Reagan reduced it to 28% without qualifying language is Deceitful and Shame on the Press. I have empirical knowledge of the 28% tax and it was only on Capital Gain nothing to do with ordinary income tax. 28% was what you/I paid if we sold an asset with a Gain...promotes investments , YA THINK!

    Judges voted the way they did because of Privacy and DUE process
    Really had nothing to do with abortion however it was abortion law which affected privacy and Due Process..
    RE: ROE VS WADE
    Why did they make that decision? Well, a person’s right to privacy was considered to be protected by the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution… so why shouldn’t that include the right to choose an abortion? Roe v. Wade basically decided that a person’s right to privacy should include the right to choose an abortion. But that’s not all – the Fourteenth Amendment says that the state can’t do things that violate an individual’s “life, liberty or property, without due process of law.” That “due process” line was very important in Roe v. Wade. Because of that line, it was decided that the government couldn’t just ban abortions without considering some other factors.

    And you will understand why we shouldn't vote for Hillary because she is not going to do anything about this.....From enviroment (even China Prime Minister stated their Business would go out of business if China did not manipulate currency...watch...And you will see the BS our elite media feeds us is BULL ...And Trump is more correct than they want Americans to believe...

    The mass numbers of voters supporting Hillary is totally clueless.

    45% of steel has high manufacturing costs with growth of 7 % a year can only DO THIS because of Government Subsidies.(but the DEM party has put all over the news Americans can not use USA steel to rebuild America's infastructure)...

    We do not make one cell phone in the usr or any Flat panel screens.
    And they think I will vote for the clueless politicians like Hillary and res. Obama.. Our Pres. says clean energy jobs yay right the silicone is made in China ...Best paying American manufacturing jobs are moving NOW...

    Maybe conspiracy theory. I cannot believe even a democrat would want to elect Clinton. Charles Otel Claims the Charity of the Clintons is fraudulent.(i do not know). I will say this if the charity was a strait shooter the clinton charity would not even be questionable; thus, because it an be means it is not coshered. I thought ag Subs started with FDR.(I looked briefly and Hoover had a low price stop gap-farm board which was a disaster)...We/you can only have subsidize business because of BIG GOVERNMENT with little government this rarely happen as it does not exercise enough control; and it happens because of PAID off politicians which of course makes an point again as a reason NOT to Vote for Hillary. I have not a clue about the Aircraft sector...But the so called subsidies for the oil industry is an OUT RIGHT BLATANT LIE of the century !

    GWB, Clinton balance was accounting tricks but it was closer to balance than it had been in decades.The balancing was due to Gingrich 1996 contract policy and Clinton signing off on it. The second thing was hey(remember the Post article you posted about reagan lowing tax from 70% to 28% and how i told you that was on capital gain(and shame on the Post). Well, Clinton lowered it from 28% to 20% and this produce a Boom as investors and everybody sold their assets for gains when theecapital gain tax was low before it night go back up and this happened right during the DOT com boom where worthless companies became worth big money with their paper stock and there was a lot of cashing-in. This provided the federal government with extra revenues...

    Not that I like GWB but he inherited an economy much like Pres, Obama did..The Dot com bubble had burst, 9-11-2001 happen all with-in his first nine months.Hence war(suppose to boost economies) and other tax cut and even gave welfare people a $300.00 check all in an attempt to keep the economy from going into a recession -depression...I could go on.

    The ignorance just Flabbergasts me.

    Steelworks have been handing out redundancy notices across Europe, as artificially cheap metal from China depresses prices across the world. Steelworkers at Port Talbot in Wales are to find out this week whether they are among the 750 to lose their jobs, after Tata Steel announced in January that it was cutting more than 1,000 jobs in the UK, which will bring the country’s steel job losses to more than 4,100 since last September.

    The job cuts at Port Talbot have been mirrored across Europe, with more than 90,000 steel jobs having gone since 2009, a 22% reduction in the industry’s European workforce, according to Eurofer.

    Benghazi was a disaster that did not have to happen. Whether it's Pres. Obama's fault or Hillary's makes no difference. The point that was made loud and clear is the administration ignored requests for more protection weeks earlier. And the administration made no attempt to try a rescue of them even on the out chance it would not be in time.Point, they did not try!
    The Libya thing was as Big an Flocking mess as Bush's Iraq war. and as Iraq still not settled.

    Email. If an officer sees you run a red light the officer can decide to go after you and give you a ticket or the officer can just sit and do nothing it is the officers decision...Same applied to the email. laws were broken not choosing to indict does not mean law was not broken....Anyone else would have had at-least their security clearance Revoked. As in manslaughter it does not matter the intent. Besides, I think it was telegraph early about the decision. (The insiders as far back as May). Why indictment of Hillary would have brought in everyone else whom sent Hillary classified material to/thru her server and this would of included the President also. Clearly their would be no indictment or there would of been an Constitution crisis.

    Kind da points to how serious it was. The mere fact of causing Specialized Access Program intelligence to be moved to an unsecured server is illegal to begin with wether done by accident or not.

    I think, the outcome was pre planned way back in 2013 before James Comey even accepted the job because clearly every party that sent Specialized access program information already knew what they did. I could not paint a prettier picture considering Bill met the AG on a Tar mat 7 days before the official FBI announcement...Geez, I feel like I am watching an Soap Opera on T.V. but instead it is an real life soap opera happening in real time....Clearly the USA is headed to become a Banana Republic just like we have in South America....

    Very good write up Telli.... I agree we are given much mis information from all sides...kind of like the CIA and their mis-information campaigns after the CIA is done there is no way to ferret out the truth....

    I have an question why go thru the investigation when you know the outcome? I will answer, so one can say see I told you all was above board. Sounds like an episode on a Soap opera to me....smile.

    I herd in early May this would end this way...Sounds like the Politics in Brazil to me... I still see no reason to immigrate in millions or hundreds of thousands of Syrians just because we have an DUMB government destabilizing every country we touch....

I will have to look into it...I am having to hire a new in hoe support person so i may be busy. I am interviewing one tomorrow at 3:00pm and I go to the blind center Wednesday mornings. I an watching frontline now on Zarqawi. Seems the CIA wanted to take him out on the border between Iran and Iraq before Bush went into Iraq...Only the Bush administration wanted to try and connect him to Al-queada but the CIA said there was none...Shame on em....I think I would of taken him out like the CIA wanted.

    Benghazi : ""Following an investigation into the assault, the State Department released an unclassified version of their Accountability Review Board report. The report said the investigation found "systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department [that] resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place." Four State Department employees were relieved of their duty as a result, including the assistant secretary for Diplomatic Security.

    depletion IS an accounting method an idiots do not understand.
    Never herd of it being a credit....
    Depletion costs vary by the cost to produce a barrel. It is not more than an deduction by the units of production method.(the oil depletion credit is no more than another ways of describing the accounting method call units of production depreciation method) Sheesh what gullible people...
    I hardly call it an credit. Is not this a cost? yes, it is!

    Ethanol is not even an oil thing. It an Flocking Farmer thing an industry for corn. Government Mandated thing . Mandated thru the EPA. that's BIG brother our government an Democrat favorite. Oh, I know it is the republicans fault we have BIG GOVERNMENT.

    depletion is the cost of a barrel of oil. This is the cost of drilling an completion being spread out over the life of the well....If you do not like it let the oil company take the deduction at the time of the costs at 100%...But greedy government does not want this. they want to make a company wait to deduct the cost....SO oil company spends 3 million on a well and cannot deduct 3 million it paid that year no, to deduct the 3 million it has to be spread over the estimated life of the well; depending on how many barrels of oil the well produces a day determines the amount the oil company can deduct.( they take an historical guess as to how much a well will produce); Hence the Type curb which tend to be a moving target especially with Shale production...Do not like let the company expense it the year they spend the money...Which would mean these highly fast growing shale companies would have owed NO TAX and as the shale companies over levered and low oil prices as today the company would still pay NOTAX.
    Then there is always the Property tax not the tax on surface land , yeas that too gets tax but actual computation of property tax Based on the Value of the estimated OIL in the ground.Subsidies by blank flocking eyes is no more than A DEMOCRAT LIE!
