U.S. clothing manufacturing?  But at what price, for the retail goods?

 
*shrug* probably twice what anyone thinks it should be, except for his market, which is vast and willing to pay.

There's always been some undercurrent of that notion. Doesn't seem like he's outgoing enough to get the votes tho. Maybe Kim will do it.

Y'know, I didn't have really high hopes that his moving up there would turn out to be a good thing, but I was wrong. Dude is helping out, no question.

Yep. He's apparently bought some of the Flitner ranch over by Shell. Which is much more attractive than the land he bought here, IMO. I'm sure he's got someone telling him to sock some cash away in land so that's fine. At some point he's going to be unwelcome with some locals, though, if he keeps buying up land. No idea if he plans to allow access or not. But putting in any sort of manufacturing will win him some fans.

She gave me his computer speakers, which I didn't really need since we have a set at home that sound good, and at work I keep the $5 junky ones turned down too low to matter. But these are Bose and damn. I'll bet I can use them a bit louder without bothering the office since they sound so nice.

the bad news:  people easily succumb to their evolutionary negativity bias

the good news: there's plenty of good data/evidence to reverse it

wide ranging thoughts on the subject

please give this a listen

Why are we so gloomy about the world?

Statistics from around the world show huge improvements to our way of life, but many of us think the world is in decline. There are good reasons for this; climate change is often cited as the big one. But many of us aren’t aware of the huge strides we’ve made over the decades in reducing poverty, improving healthcare and tackling hunger. In fact, according to surveys of people in richer countries at least, the majority of people think the world is getting worse; but why? In this edition of the Why Factor, Sandra Kanthal asks if human nature is wired to fixate on the downsides of life.

the bad news...

Couple calls it quits over Trump: Wounds still raw after bitter U.S. election

Burning passions over Donald Trump's presidency are taking a personal toll on both sides of the political divide. For Gayle McCormick, it is particularly wrenching: she has separated from her husband of 22 years.

The retired California prison guard, a self-described "Democrat leaning toward socialist," was stunned when her husband casually mentioned during a lunch with friends last year that he planned to vote for Trump – a revelation she described as a "deal breaker."

"It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump," said McCormick, 73, who had not thought of leaving the conservative Republican before but felt "betrayed" by his support for Trump.

the good news,,,,

she's been tapped to head up the local "Wayne's World" fan club Garth look-alike vp position
