Forgive me, but you don't have much of an idea about what you're talking about. Why is there an FBI most wanted list? Or an Interpol list? Can't we just, you know, find these guys with today's technology? Explain to me what "tech" we have that would have found him and how? And tell me, whose nose was he sitting under?

This is actually kind of entertaining to me as well. There's a subtext here that I don't think you're picking up on.
The government became aware of the mansion in Abbottabad in 2007. Do you have any solid reasoning for it taking four years to figure out Bin Laden was in it?

Why are there most wanted lists? Because the FBI and Interpol don't have access to the tech, nor the money the DOD has.

They say the NSA can record every single phone call in the U.S., and store it for a month. I'd guess any number of folks on the FBI list makes a call occasionally. They could almost certainly find them with voice recognition that way. The FBI lacks that ability, though.

As for the subtext. I get it. You despise Trump. He could cure lung cancer, and you'd bitch because he didn't cure colon cancer.

My life, hasn't varied much throughout the various presidencies. Keep moving along, few more, or few less dollars here and there depending on who's in charge. Nothing that was lifestyle altering. I didn't much care for Obama, I didn't particularly despise him. Same for Bush 2. Clinton got a blowie in the Oval Office. I'd give him a fist bump for that. At present, life has changed. Consumer confidence has skyrocketed in the last two years. People are spending more money. Now, I've only been in the manufacturing sector for seven years. I don't have a terribly long term view. My pops, been in for 30, my grandfather, nearly 55. I take a bit of stock in hearing them say it has never been like it is at present. More jobs than workers.

Anecdotes are anecdotal.

There’s just about zero evidence that Trump is responsible for any of those those things.

An absolutely likely scenario, no doubt.

Your timeline is off, and again I'm sorry but you simply do not know what you are talking about.

But go on, shit talk McRaven! You know better than him, plus Trump says he totally sucks!

I'm trying to think where else I've heard the "these policies don't affect me, so I shouldn't oppose them" argument. Hmmm...

Trump supporters can't find the irony in Trump condemning the guy who got bin Laden the same day he gives a pass to a regime that killed a journalist writing for an American paper, despite American intelligence agencies finding otherwise.

Regardless -- happy Turkey Day to all.

Let's hope that more jobs than workers thing holds up.

Here's 14,000 without job.

A person briefed on the matter told The Associated Press that the plant being shuttered in Canada is just the beginning as GM prepares for the next economic downturn, shifting trade agreements under the Trump administration, and potential tariffs on imported automobiles.

Got to love those trade disagreements.

This has little to do with politics, and everything to do with cars not selling.

Truck and SUV sales are up. Car sales are down double digits, again.

Why buy a car when you can buy a crossover, with the same fuel mileage and more room.

Ford has already announced they are cutting all passenger cars outside of the Mustang. GM's following suit.

Toyota and Nissan have no problem building vehicles in the US. They're busy as can be. Know the one big difference between them, GM, and Ford?

I have an Escape and would take a Focus over it any day. The Escape is a mediocre passenger car and an even poorer excuse of a utility vehicle. I swear my Saab 9-5 has more cargo room and more passenger room, and it has more power and gets 30% better fuel economy.

I am probably in the minority, as you indicate. American's never were very smart with their vehicle choices, the pickup truck/SUV boom is case and point.

I was anti-crossover for a while. Then I bought an Infiniti. Plenty of room, round about 20mpg, north of 300HP. It was fun to drive.

My mom just bought a Mazda CX5. Super nice. 35mpg highway, 26 city. Has plenty of room in it.

Truck fuel economy is on the way up as well. Toyota has made a killing on the Taco, GM is selling the Canyon/Colorado much more successfully this time around.

Ford has the EcoBoost getting around 20mpg, with well north of 300HP.

The truck game has changed a lot over the last ten years.
