Everyone who has an opinion that conflicts with yours is "harboring hate" apparently? Yawn. Reactionary much? What is it that threatens you so much about skepticism?

Employment is probably my number one concern. When more people are making more money, everyone wins. Tax bases expand, education gets better, infrastructure gets better, racial animosity drops, crime goes down, social equality comes closer to becoming a reality — people are more optimistic and hell, they just plain feel better.

I sincerely hope that the economy continues to add jobs and I really hope those jobs aren't all low-paying service jobs. I'll take a win regardless of who is at the helm.

That said, I am skeptical and I'll remain skeptical. Donald Trump deserves skepticism through his own actions. Go ask some long term residents of AC who've lived through the Donald Trump show.

Also, I'd be more impressed with Trump if he started practicing what he's been preaching. Where's the announcement that he's moving all manufacturing of his own products to the US? We're supposed to believe that on the strength of the confidence in Donald Trump, $50 billion in investments that weren't previously heading to the US are now on their way (has that even been proven?) but Trump himself doesn't have confidence enough to do the same with his own business operations?

But when he announces he is bringing all his jobs back to the US the MSM and many on here will say. "SEE...it was all for him!" Conflict of Interest!!! He will not win that game I am afaid.

You know this to be true.

I would rather see him bring back jobs like the tech jobs that could come with this investment,

Some investments from SoftBank’s fund, which was unveiled in October, were probably destined for the U.S. anyway, given the nation’s leadership in the global technology industry. But Son hadn’t previously committed to creating a specific amount of jobs through the investment vehicle.

Trump was the one to announce the job-creation pledge, taking to Twitter after a meeting with Son Tuesday. “Masa said he would never do this had we not won the election!” the president-elect tweeted.

Son is known for making bold projections about the future. In 2010, he laid out a 300-year plan for his company that involved investing in 5,000 companies by 2040 to give his unborn successors a base to build on.

SoftBank and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund unveiled their new venture weeks before the Nov. 8 presidential election. The two have been talking to other investors for the $30 billion they need to reach their $100 billion goal. When plans for the fund were first announced, Son said that he planned on being the biggest investor in technology over the next decade.

This was already in the works before Trump even won the election. This appears to be more theater than anything else.

not at all sparky, but when EVERY POST is anti Trump and there is never a positive message, I kind of get the impression that either your underwear are way, to tight, or you have some pent up hate. I apologize for giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you were intelligent enough to get you some new drawers from the wal mart.

This is great news. I am actually optimistic about our economic future for the first time in almost a decade. Good job Donald! 👏

See, now this is just ignorant on many levels. Trump had to relinquish his stake in his business deals so he could be president of the US and NOT have a conflict of interest. (If he kept doing business, I suspect that the pointy headed liberals would come unglued and likely drown in their own tears. There really isn't any pleasing the SJW's is there?

In the beginning all I knew is I didn't want Hillery, the more I watched Trump, I laughed at him, I still laugh at him the guy he cracks me up when he talks sometimes. But I voted for him and take him seriously, this man doesn't have to deal with companies, he seems to be able to deal with business owners,,, owners. am liking what I see.

Indeed. Could you imagine the reactions this would get if it was Hillary instead of Trump?

Luckily, she isn't president and we won't have to worry about that.

Most people do not like to think about their own hypocrisy, so I can see why they wouldn't worry about it.

You guys have said it all, no more to add. Our businesses were sick of politicians running things, seems like the ones overseas are too. Now, I owned a small business and it seems when the government gets involved, regulations get all blown out of proportion. We need regulations, but it seems like some of the rules are just there to increase the costs and make extra jobs for people. Reasonable regulations are good, too much regulation is not good. I hate all the regulations on roofing, I liked to roof but all the safety craps increases your chance of having an accident when you trip over the stuff on the roof. Not everyone can be a roofer and safety is good, but to need to put a safety rope and harness on to go patch a hole in a roof is rediculous. You have to go to the top to hook up the line and sometimes that takes longer than going up and tarring a hole. It's rediculous.

You spill a little oil on the ground at the job and all of a sudden you need to have a special crew come and clean it up. A bag of catlitter can clean it up. Then they give you a fine to pay for being negligent. That is the way it is getting. Making a mountain out of a molehill and then letting big companies get away without paying much of a fine for huge spills.

Sparky? Are we giving eachother pet names now, Skooter? Lmao. I get the impression that you don't have anything of substance to say so instead you've gotten into the habit of accusing people of being "filled with hate" when you don't like what they have to say regardless of how much "hate" there is in what they've said or what role it played in motivating them to say it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for good ole fashioned mud slinging but I can still present and defend my positions and refute those of others without resorting to "you're filled with hate." You're swiftly becoming a one trick pony and it ain't a particularly great trick.

Unless Trump lives up to his promise of sending back all the Mexicans...

They will be the people that get all those jobs.

Trump seems to have trumped this up -- this was strategically planned a long time ago.

So glad to have the jobs... But, so sad that the jobs are from a Japanese company financed by Saudia Arabia. To depend on Japan and Saudia Arabia for our jobs gives me some pause though. When the dollar tanks, hate for our laborers to be owned by them.

This should make trade negotiations interesting.

Oh? Has he turned over his businesses to the not-a-blind-trust-because-he-doesn't-know-what-that-means yet Skooter? No? He didn't? Is he still making decisions for his businesses? Yes?


If he kept doing business, I suspect that the pointy headed liberals would come unglued and likely drown in their own tears. There really isn't any pleasing the SJW's is there?


EDIT:

Forgot this wasn't the Mud Pit. If you're intent on trading insults, take it Mud Pit maybe?

He handed his business to his family. Of course he will still pull strings but he will do it legally.

Will you send your son to die in the South China Sea so the Trump family can build a casino on Taiwan? Legally?
