I have some acquaintances here in Kenosha County ( not at all Ryan lovers) that were celebrating the news of his departure. Democrats in this area of Wisconsin are fired up. They became fired up right after a liberal judge was elected a few days ago. We're riding the wave here.
    Child molesters and pedophiles were also fired up and celebrating.

    Ask Joe Lieberman ( I ) how that works... Fail to follow the most hard-line "progressive" policies and you will be primaried/removed.

    I am unclear as to what it means to be a subject of an investigation, but not a target.

    If a bank is robbed, the bank teller is a subject of the investigation the thief who robbed the bank is the target.

    I guess you are an huge liar , like Trump. Came on this site as an Independent, however you are a Trump GOP voter.

    Talking about "negotiating", I did negotiate with Trump, but the "asshole" knew everything better; thus his Trump Shuttle went bankrupt as predicted by me. Amen

    By the way the job numbers under Trump declined see the statistics. As well more lay-offs, even Wallmart

    You're going to have to recalibrate your tin foil hat. If you are the best "negotiator" we have, then I'm completely vindicated in my statements. We better remove you from office on the grounds you're unstable, irrational, and in need of long-term psychological monitoring. President Trump talked of PAID Medical Leave in his SOTU address... a Psychologically stable person, could win that prize in a tough negotiation. We are NOT going to get it because we have nut jobs like you "negotiating". (assuming you are actually on the team negotiating with Trump) (I don't recall seeing you on the live streamed meeting with President Trump). Good Grief... I'm arguing with a lunatic.

    As I said in a previous post - the Democrats have zero power. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

    I would like to call your attention and remind you of a post in which the point was made... 'The Democrats own Obamacare 100% and republicans had 0 input into that legislation due to their minority status in the house and democrats holding a filibuster proof majority in the Senate.' You argued this was false, and that republicans added numerous amendments and therefore had input into this legislative process. Republicans do not have a filibuster proof majority in the Senate and Democrats do have power.

    The "resist movement" is the downfall of our party at the moment, President Trump is far more willing to negotiate than he is given credit for. We must ditch clueless, multi-millionaire Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and their failed strategies (stomping feet, pouting, running out of the joint chambers after the SOTU. Do we want to be known as the party of "no"??? We must knock on President Trump's door and begin negotiations. At this rate we will loose senate seats in 2018.

    How do you negotiate with the "devil"? It is only bully tactics; nothing else. Thus succumb to the Trump "mafia" and crawl up his fat butt? The Dem's still live in the time when "decency" still existed; however under Trump and his cronies is has become an anarchy as well an "dictatorship". Only a revolution or "purge" can change things now. Even if Mueller finds Trump guilty of "whatever", his corrupt White Suprematistic party will fight to the death to keep him in place.
    President Trump is not the devil - if you believe he is, you need Psychiatric help. If you tell other people he is, there is no reason they should believe anything you have to say. You, and those like you, could not successfully negotiate with President Trump. Somebody like myself, could successfully negotiate and get some things accomplished. But the attitude of 'we want everything our way or we will shut the government down' prevailed, didn't work and won't work if we try it again. The cold hard reality is the American people identify the Democratic party as responsible for the last government shutdown. An extremely valuable arrow in our quiver shot into the water. More Cold hard reality - Today Jobs numbers exploded beyond expectations. It would have been nice to be able to claim some of the credit but idiots followed Chuck Schumer on a fools errand on a fight they could not win. All chance to negotiate something we want - LOST.

    Schmidt Wrote: Tribalism. Republicans are soo tribal.

    A tribe is cloistered, living close, in a tiny bubble devoid of information entering or leaving - a typical university with professors serving the function of witch doctors, keeping information contrary to their belief system, suppressed. The Republican party is spread out widely (about 95% of land area) in the nation and consists of a significant number of former Democrats. As people are exposed to life outside the bubble of large cities and universities and the aggressive forced group think, they observe their surroundings, gather a great deal of information combined with life experience and become republicans. You will never solve a problem if you are not honest about observable evidence. Bernie Sanders got the shaft, Hillary was corrupt and corrupted everything she touched including the DNC aaand we are back to Bernie Sanders again. Nancy Pelosi is hated by America. Democrats were foolish for not voting for the latest economic bill (something that could not be stopped anyway) giving republicans 100% credit for todays economy (which by all measures is great and improving fast). We should take President Trumps DACA Deal... It's not too bad. The extreme left controls the Democrat party and that's it's current downfall.

    Hi Chet, My competitors overhead costs are higher. They need a legal team to write the contracts, a CFO to manage the finances, a chief engineering officer, an estimating manager, plant manager, a marketing manager and on and on... I do this myself. At any given time of day, you will most likely find me under a welding helmet. My competitor hires a CEO and pays him $12,000,000+ /year. The CEO subsequently hired all these other staff members because he is too stupid to design the product/process himself etc... but I'm going far afield here. Regarding loss of jobs overseas, this may or may not happen though the free market shuffles things around, it's rarely a zero sum game. More likely a growth in the pie occurs, with the lower cost new technology, the end customers will decide to trash their old coated cast iron glass delivery systems and replace them with my Stainless Steel air-ride delivery system. An entirely new product - entirely new jobs. I am also small enough to stay under the radar of business killing government bureaucracies and regulatory agencies. I'm telling you chet, the only way to lift a person out of poverty is to give them something productive to do. You have a sense of accomplishment if you have accomplished something and a sense of pride if you have done something to be proud of. Look at the pathetic losers rioting at U.C.Berkley. I have a three time felon working for me worth more than 10 of those pieces of trash.

    For my small manufacturing business, I just finished a quarter million+ dollar quote for parts which are sold overseas. My main competitor in Ireland is taxed at 12.5%. I was at 39% until today. Now, my revised quote is roughly 20% lower and I will get the work. The bulk of remaining percentage will go to my critically important employees... the welders and polishers. Democrats should have voted for this bill. We are soon to see 4% GDP and I predict 5% GDP for years to come. The slashing of regulations was a boot on the throat of our economy which was lifted thanks to President Trump. Say what you will - Talk is cheep - myself and my employees will be celebrating tomorrow by going ice-fishing and having a great party lasting into the weekend. Merry Christmas
