The Mercers make the Kochs look like Bernie Sanders.
It’s frustrating that the Republicans have bowed to the NRA to the point of not even willing to have a discussion about intelligent gun control. There are some very straight forward actions that could be taken which would have a meaningful impact on gun violence and which many gun owners would support. My list:
For being an innovative and forward looking company willing to do “moonshots”, Google does not have a great track record of understanding how to monetize their work. We’ll have to see if Waymo = Android or if Waymo = GooglePlus.
I have to admit that a 500 is a tempting car for me. They are lovely to drive in cities and it makes a pretty good slow car fast canyon carver. My buddy even puts tiny little chains on it and swears it’s a great car in the snow.
I worded that terribly and you are totally correct. I meant to say skipping takeout vs. not getting your oil changed.
I’ve totally been there friend. Companies talk about coming together as a team and treating each other like family until it comes time to make quarter end numbers. If I can offer some advice that’s serve me through two layoffs that eliminated or off-shored 20% of my teams...
It’s certainly not Obama’s fault, but having interest rates sitting on the floor for 9 years was probably a risky gambit long term.
It depends if this was just a 1-day correction, or the beginning of something worse. If this levels off inside the week, and we go back to growth, he’ll probably stay quiet.
The stock market is a lot like Tinkerbell. In this case, US investors have been clapping their hands for the last year believing that the tax break was going to change everything.
For sure. It’s also interesting to me that Spicer and Bannon have not called their own quotes as being inaccurate.
If I was wealthier and extremely enthusiastic about procreating, this thing would be absolutely fantastic.
Who says the left can’t meme?
I know the book’s veracity has been questioned, but Fire and Fury has pretty great commentary from Bannon and Spicer regarding that call on AF1. They’re both quoted as basically saying they could not be happier about being out of the loop since they were pretty certain obstruction of justice was going down at the…
I really wish he’d just listen to the dog.
Right! The only concrete information in the memo is that Trump hired a campaign staffer who had been under investigation by the FBI.
Couldn’t agree more. The politicians that have survived scandal (Iran- Contra, the invasion of Iraq, Monica, Scooter Libby...) have developed a clear narrative, surrounded themselves with competent people and built a firewall of professionals willing to sacrifice themselves. Most critically, the details remained hazy…
Amazon takes many of the same shortcuts that Wal-mart does (low wages, shady sourcing, sweatshops, ruthlessness toward the competition) but to date, they have been able to avoid scrutiny because they’re practices are invisible and their client base is wealthier.
As much as Mitsubishi’s offerings are questionable, I don’t think it’s out of the game yet. They’ve worked in some innovation offering the PHEV, which will pay off when gas prices go up. They have focused almost exclusively on CUVs. They offer a strong value proposition in an under served segment.
I’m not sure what a “Forest Oxygen Bar” is, but it seems like an opportunity that every other car maker has missed so far.
