Heres What You Really Need To Know About Trumps Carrier Deal

Back in February, United Technologies announced that it would be moving a couple of Indianapolis factories to Mexico. One was a Carrier air conditioning plant that employed 1,400 people, and the other was an electronic controls plant that employed 700.

Donald Trump went ballistic. "I will call the head of Carrier and I will say, I hope you enjoy your new building," Trump said. "I hope you enjoy Mexico. Here's the story, folks: Every single air conditioning unit that you build and send across our border — you're going to pay a 35 percent tax on that unit."

Recounts, audits? Why not Florida?

Seems to me, that would be the place to find fraud, etc.

Why weren't the deplorables who beat the slightly less deplorable

Arrested? Or Donnie Deplorable for encouraging the other deplorables to beat the slightly less deplorable?

Clinton/Democrats election viewing/victory parties in your city or state

I live in Sacramento and don't see an event listed. I am going to assume it will be at the Radisson, but no confirmation.

Where are yours (and mine)?

She's a true hero! (Once she settled for millions in a private settlement)

Only after she had an opportunity at a big bunch of money coming did she decide to partially come forward. (Private settlement). No she was sexually abused, harassed evey day of her life and did nothing about it until she had a nice payday. And rather than take Ailes and Fox to court, she settled privately.. and then decided to write a book.

I ask myself, would her advice be to other women to take it until you have a defendant with deep pockets?

Well Democrats, how's that "letting them off the hook" thing

Working out for ya?

Think the Democrats will ever decide to play nasty? Think they will ever decide to say "no Mr Bush, you cannot testify without being under oath"?. Think they will ever decide to say " Mr Gonzales, you need to spend your life behind bars" instead of "have a nice retirement"?

It is time to investigate investigate and investigate. Try them through the media, play the game just like the Reps play the game. Lock em up.
