    Let's give the world over to people that say this: "I have more hatred in me than you can possibly imagine, and I find it energizing."

I wonder how many companies are doing this. It’s an interesting development but my industry is still booming. One hindrance is the lack of skilled workers. Need more engineers, programmers, machinists etc., good middle class jobs that don’t require you to go into debt on schooling(in most cases it’s free) . Gotta do a better job of getting the word out to high schoolers.
    We have told kids for 20 years that we aren't going to build things in America anymore, we will let people in underdeveloped countries or communist China do all that work. So we have a bunch of young people who were born with skills to make things and instead they go off to college to get a marketing degree or some degree they were not naturally built for. So we are definitely short on skill trades people and we need to send the message to younger people that trades are a great way to go and will provide a fine living. We need to make things here in America again in a much bigger way if we are to be competitive in the world 20-30 years from now. Colleges are ripping these kids off and their families and sending them away adrift and in debt.

    Trump just "hereby ordered" American businesses how to conduct themselves. I look forward to The Fellas screaming "socialist" at him and condemning him.

    I'm old enough to remember when the manufacturing economy was "Trump's manufacturing economy." Now it's a global manufacturing economy. It's pretty sad that Trump has ceded control to the globalists in the last 7.5 months.

    Trump took Obama's no growth manufacturing economy and made it grow. Period. It will continue, despite your tears and your wish that it would all go rotten.

    I was on the road a couple of days a go and I had a chance to listen to trump's entire press gathering. Very bizarre experience. First of all, he lies like he breathes. (We all know that, but when you take the time to listen to him for more than a couple of minutes, it's still shocking.) Secondly, a lot of his answers make no sense because he jumbles topics and lies. Thirdly, his narcissism and messianism are very scary.

    Most importantly, the economic downturn strategy is very apparent. There will be no coherent public policy approach to a recession. The only "coherent" strategy will be to deny and deflect that the country is in a recession. Instead of doing something about it trump will deny and/or blame everybody else and the repubs will follow along. As will the 40% of the country that thinks he's the messiah, no matter how much economic pain they are in. Crazy.
    Trump ran on jobs, jobs, jobs.

    So you're saying that KGF is wrong when he indicates that the US manufacturing economy is tied to global markets and not the work of Dear Leader? I'm sure he'll respond viciously.

    Here's the problem with Trump's entire economic strategy in a nutshell. He's only used to negotiating when he has control. he is sure that his tariff strategy would work if he had control. He's sure his economic policy would work if he had control. He doesn't have control, and I'm not sure he factors that into his plans. And his plans would fail even if he did.

    A three point shooter got hot and hit 50% of his threes over a period of 4 games. He had replaced a 3 point shooter that had been hitting at 25%. After the hot stretch the three point shooter "cooled" to 40% for the rest of the year. Because he was no longer shooting at 50% should the fans be wishing for the 25% shooter to return?

    Irrelevant. You are too biased to come up with any accurate hypothetical like this.

    I mostly agree, but I'd add total control or in a vacuum. There are more factors here than when he's just running a business.

    Good stuff. We need to return to being a producing, saving and investing population. A good start to that would be to return more manufacturing to the US.
