    I struggle to fully understand people that are so upset with the current administration. I mean I get the hair, the arrogance, etc. But...jeez..we are cranking! Both of my kids under 30 yrs old have 100K a year jobs...manufacturing is returning...stocks are up.....new construction everywhere. I mean damn it, stop and smell the roses people. Be careful what you ask for.

    10/4... Automotive is struggling a bit as out tastes have changed once more and cars are out and SUV’s and trucks are in. Mining industry is finally crawling out of the terrible hole it was in from the previous 8 years. It is sad that the country is going to remain divided for my lifetime. After 9-11 we came together for a short period until the media could not stand it any longer and went back on the attack.

    Because they insist on following their dream of building cars and trucks for utopia, not what the consumer wants to drive.

    I fully agree people that say they can not find jobs don’t want to find jobs, or they want a way more money than they are worth.

    My personal company is in the boating industry but my career is in the automotive industry. One of the trends I am seeing is the auto manufacturers are heading back down the road they just got bailed out of. But in both worlds I find that the kids getting into the work force don’t want to work more than 30 hours a week and they want to start at the of top of the food chain.

    Are the people beholden to the government? Or is the government a servant of the people?

    Lot of ways to say that same point. My words are imprecise, not that great.

    Some believe focus everything on a central government, then the government takes care of everything and all people. Solves all problems.

    Some believe the government is in place to address specific issues ( for example national defense, rule of law, etc). At the end of the day government works for the people, not manages the people.
