lol look at you on that high horse how droll

You don't belong up there, that's totally evil of you to say. How dare you. He didn't do anything wrong here, you people just believe one news source and don't do research. That's just sad. Yeah, attack the poor man who is already showing that he CARES a lot about the job. A lot more than petty, lame, ineffective, lazy Obama. So you know what? You know why the stocks went up? HA! They told us that on the day OF when they went down temporarily before shooting up. You don't look at legitimate sources OBVIOUSLY. So how dare you attack Trump when you're the epitome of ignorant?


1) Wasn't talking to you.

2) How is advocating for intellectual honesty "ignorant" or "being on a high horse"?

3) When insulting the intelligence of others it behooves you to demonstrate a high school level competency at the language you're using.



Go look it up. I'm not google. I already did my work. Now it's your turn. Sheesh.


Sigh. You do understand that condescension and chest thumping is not a replacement for skillful communication and argumentation? Regarding the deal: first of all, he mischaracterized the size. Second of all, it is subsidized by Indiana taxpayers. It is corporate welfare. These things are simply facts.



I have no need of proving what is already proven fact to you. You need to hie thee hence to google.




What are you even saying here? I wasn't even talking with you.



Just like the OP, you're just selfish and think that gives you the right to do whatever you want. But guess what? That doesn't make you right--in fact, your words prove that you're wrong because you lack morality and sense. You're nobody. What gives you the right to criticize someone who has done more than you ever could? He is much smarter than you. You hate him because you're jealous.


I criticize him because it's my right and responsibility as a constituent of a democratic republic. I make no comment about how intelligent I think he is. Again, you should probably work on your language skills before you go around casting aspersions on other people's intellect.



I don't care if he's the president or your neighbor or your boss--show some respect and have some class or you would be better off not speaking at all. I will always defend someone if people are giving false testimony against them that I know to be false. I don't know how to shut my mouth on these happy occasions, so i hope that my honesty might help you cut it out. If you really think that Trump is wrong, that's fine. Be a bigger person then, don't degrade yourself to attacking our next President. Have some pride in your country. If you don't then why are you even here? Get out. Go be happy, then. Nobody is making you stay here.

I don't like Obama--I have stated so, but I have never made it a point to herald my opinion out into the masses. That would just be STUPID. I largely kept my peace for eight years. I was unhappy at the direction our country was moving in, but I didn't make it my Raison D'être to call Obama out. That would be a. a waste of mine and everyone's time b. mean, and classless.

So, you're against evil when it's other people but not when it's you doing it? How evil. That's scary. I hope you stop that.


Are you quite through with yourself? I suggest you wash your hands.

Union's are necessary. I have worked abroad where Union's and OSHSA are not present. Even the Big 3 exploit it's workers in 3rd world countries without Union's. I've personally seen child labor in a Chrysler plant in Toluca, Mexico, and more.

If it wasn't for the Union's large corporation's would still be exploiting child labor, and worse.

If Union's are a cancer let's hope it spreads to the rest of the world fast, because the fat ass CEO's and execs, at the top, don't give a crap about grunts at the bottom.

I agree I joined a union a few months back and I'm so glad I did. Already suing my company because I found out they were screwing us. I walked into a meeting with my union rep and he destroyed them with the law.

Unfortunately ATS is about "Denying Ignorance", and your history knowledge is lacking and ignorance has hit 10, on a scale from 1-10.


Here's a good start so you don't make yourself look ignorant in the future.

And a whole bunch more humble pie for you.

stopchildlabor.org...


1881 – The American Federation of Labor at their first national convention calls for states to enact legislation barring children under 14 from wage labor.




1836 – Early trade unions at the National Trades’ Union Convention propose requiring state minimum age laws for factory work.

Carrier's official announcement said it "close to 1,000 jobs". Do your homework.

Between that, the 10,000 US Steel jobs and the 50,000 SoftBank jobs, he's doing a hell of a lot more in 4 weeks than our current Prezzy in 8 years.

That Union spox is a tool.


I don't think you remember how many jobs per month we were losing before Obama took office in 2008.

The number is actually released by Carrier not Trump. Trump just repeated what Carrier said. The union leader is a Democrat hack, so why would anyone believe him.

Agreed I have no bone in usa politics being a brit but have seen from day one intelligent posters just ignoring their choices faults. Some back him no matter what and this is scary...at what point will they look at his actions without the orange coloured spectacles on?.
I said it before both choices were rubbish but I do have faith some supporters of Trump will be adult enough to call him out if he cocks up.

Also imagine if Clinton won and didn't release her tax records and did not put her business interests in a blind trust? The right wing would be going insane.
Very hypocritical if you ask me.

The "working man's" platform that Trump campaigned/pandered on is now proven to be the biggest lie/flip-flop of his entire campaign as his cabinet is now a collection of the most cut-throat profiteering, anti-labor, CEOs in America...apart from the war dogs...neither bodes well for what is to come in the next 4 years.

Correct. What Obama did (love him or hate him) was to right the Titanic in the 11th hour.

Bush threw some temporary money at it and pretty much screamed "here you go!!!"

Obama took a ship on course for the 2nd great depression and created 11 Million plus new jobs.
If Trump did a "Carrier Deal" EVERY SINGLE WEEK...FOR #) YEARS..he would TIE Obama's 8 years in office.


Actually Trump fudged the numbers...but I am being generous.

As best I can tell, the only issue the Conservatives had with Obama's economics was he was a black man.

YES...I am saying it...

Trump's twitter attacks are his direct-line to his Nazi Youth...

He attacks someone on twitter...and death threats follow from the Alt-Right..his followers swarm, emboldened and fearless of consequence..

It foretells what the next few years will look like for anyone bold enough to criticize the President..

It's intimidation at the least..and Horrific tyrannical tactics at best.

And Trump knows it. It is precisely why he singles people out for attack from his followers on twitter.

YES! More people are going to HAVE to stand up to Trump.

And then stand up to his delusional minions.

OP, produce a copy of the "deal that saved 1,100 jobs". Otherwise, you are guessing. Are you guessing? I think you are guessing. I seriously doubt it is possible to know exactly how many jobs were saved unless that number was part of the contract. Cherry-picking sources that are guess numbers that affirm what you believe already is not helpful. The most important source would be Carrier corporation itself in this, which did not say the number of jobs saved. Yet, their website says NOTHING about this:
www.carrier.com...
www.carrier.com...

Until Carrier issues a public statement about the number of jobs saved, it would be highly speculative to claim any one number.

Every statement is only as strong as the source of that statement. Workers unions are well known for being above all extensions of the Democrat party, so that would make the unions a terrible source for an accurate number of jobs saved by Trump's negotiations.

It appears the 1100 number is completely wrong.

350 Research and Development jobs were never leaving the U.S.

730 Union member jobs and 70 office/clerical workers were left. 550 jobs are going to Mexico from the Indianapolis facility and 700 from the Huntington facility.

The 550 Indianapolis facility people really thought they were keeping their jobs. They were laid off, so carrier can hire 550 in Monterey, Mexico.

None of these numbers make sense. It seems to only leave the R&D jobs that were never leaving.

Dealmaker? NO, showman. Well. showman is being too nice. He wanted a news cycle to say he saved jobs. He's a fraud. The Art of the Fraud.


This isn't "news" or new.

The research and engineering jobs were never leaving. Duh.

He did save a ton of jobs...The ones that went have already gone or were too far gone to save.

Jesus, you Hillbots will drudge up any old info from an Occupy Democrats meme and post it as truth, won't you?

yeah exactly. people dont actually think they rationalize events based on their bias. dont just join a team, you gotta look at things objectively, if you dont then you cant make rational decisions. even though I believe trumps intentions are in the right place i will stand against him if he starts doing the wrong thing just as i stood against hillary. right now im just hoping that his actions match his words but why would i stand with him if he makes bad decisions. hes not my friend, im not being paid by him, theres no downside to being objective. people just have serious cognitive dissonance when it comes to stuff like this. i never got how someone can be so attached to their beliefs that they completely disregard truth and facts. and the sad part is they seem to be in the majority.
