Wilbur Ross told the Senate Commerce Committee that when he hired the worker in 2009, the person provided what looked like a valid driver’s license and Social Security card. After Ross was nominated by Trump, he asked all his household staff to provide such documentation again.


Sounds ok to me, what's amusing is seeing Huff call him 'undocumented'. He had documents, they just were fake!
as if the undocumented worker couldn't provide "fake" documents again....get real? i wonder if the undocumented worker is getting a 13th month bonus (maybe even 13th year) to leave quietly....where is cnn on this?

Next time you want to spout off about Oblame-a's spending keep in mind he has kept the fed int rate at near zero during his whole presidency. With normal interest rates the deficit would be many trillions higher. Not to mention all the additional spending he was unable to get passed

Now they'll just blame everything on Trump. They'll pretend the past 8 years never existed and all of our problems are caused by Bush and Trump.

That's why they are taking a well deserved time out from politics. We've had enough of that lunacy and it's time for the adults to take charge.
no, scumbag will just blame obama for his troubles...i'm roflmfao already..now donald the dunce says he wants a weaker dollar yet talk of tariffs, fiscal deficits will cause hike in interest rates and send the dollar rising

Let's all just casually ignore the war in the middle east that was started by W that has cost us trillions. Because the added nothing to our debt.


Obama is the first POTUS to be in a war during every day of his two terms.


The weather yesterday was HORRIBLE - rainy and cold! Damn Obama for causing it! Starting January 20th the Trump/Putin Administration will make sure weather always sunny! It's going to be great!

This is from a old tv series called "Trackdown." The con man named Trump will build a wall.

Only the Gawker website was shut down. The rest of the Gawker network (Jalopnik, Deadspin, Gizmodo, Jezebel, Life Hacker, and Kotaku) have all remained up and running. After Gawker was acquired by Univision, they kept most of the sites up and running.

Not sure why you seem to be so upset about this article. It's an opinion piece, nothing more. Is the media not allowed to print opinion pieces anymore?

Who is this guy???

This hack writer was a former editor at Gawker which was successfully sued and put out of business by Hulk Hogan and Peter Thiel. He was part of the editorial staff that outed Thiel.

Surprise he has found work again? Looking at this stupid opinion piece, I suspect Salon must be paying him by the word.

"It’s been fun, but it’s about time for Republicans to admit that the great Donald Trump experiment isn’t going to work out—for them.

One hypothetical version of President Trump—the ideal version, for Republicans, and one that many convinced themselves he would become, given practice and training—is a new Reagan: a mouthpiece for the ideas and policies inserted into his empty head by members of an ascendant conservative movement riding his television-mastery to power. Surround this version of Trump with good party men like Reince Priebus and Mike Pence, and he takes care of entertaining the masses—and distracting the opposition—while true-believing conservatives actually run the country, enacting their entire agenda too forcefully and quickly for anyone to effectively fight them.

We could still get some twisted version of this, especially since Trump is still going to outsource all actual governing and policy decisions to others, but what Trump showed today, in his unhinged press conference, is how quickly and impetuously he can (and will) undermine and sabotage their efforts.

Another version of Trump—the nightmare for liberals and not one conservatives would welcome either—could be a second Nixon, with no real political philosophy, but a willingness to do anything to maintain his grip on power. Not just through unethical and criminal means, like the Watergate break-in or the sabotage of the Vietnam peace talks, but also in his willingness to do decidedly un-conservative things if they’d benefit him politically—like the wage and price controls he implemented, to great popular acclaim, in 1971. This is the model Steve Bannon likely hopes to emulate.

But Trump will fail to be either, and by now Republicans should recognize this. He’s too impetuous and narcissistic to be Reagan, and not smart enough to be Nixon. Half of his advisers will attempt to use him as a pitchman for conservative policy, the other half will attempt to use him to create and sustain a white nationalist international coalition, and he will instead tweet for hours about which celebrity slighted him this week. Trump will reject conservative ideas if he believes they will not be popular, but if Trump attempts to cynically abandon conservatism to maintain popularity, he will find that he has no clue how to go about doing actually popular things.

The end result won’t work for anyone. Successful corrupt right-wing populists generally tend to actually deliver tangible things to their bases of support. Trump will be unable to do this, and the Republican Party is too tied to its dead philosophy to help him. Ethno-nationalism needs welfare chauvinism to flourish, but today’s GOP might actually be too opposed to all forms of welfare (for the non-rich) to ensure their own political success.

Meanwhile, Republicans who hoped to use Trump as a useful idiot are already finding that he’s generally more of an actively destructive idiot. Whether or not he meant it sincerely enough to back it up with action, Trump has promised to protect social welfare programs Paul Ryan has been salivating at the opportunity to dismantle. Official Washington is already failing to maintain its hegemonic grip on foreign policy. Republicans are already flailing in their attempts to dismantle Obamacare, and Trump can’t help but screw up the messaging every time he discusses it.

If Republicans were smart—if they were a rational political party able to act in their own best interests—they’d impeach Trump as soon as possible. His bizarre performance today, and his brazenly inadequate response to the many very obvious conflicts of interest and opportunities for corrupt dealings that his administration will invite, give Republicans a perfectly acceptable rationale to do so. They can say it is for the good of the country, but the truth is that it would be for the good of the Republican Party and the conservative movement.

Impeaching Trump would not go down well with many Republican voters—though it would win them many new fans in the centrist media, probably—but if they did so, Republicans would still have two solid years of complete control of the government, only now with a properly conservative and pliant president, in Mike Pence, who will obviously sign anything Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell place on his desk. Even if a conservative grassroots backlash leads to Republican members of Congress losing their seats in 2018, most of them will be replaced with equally conservative Republicans, who will then have another two years to continue to implement the full conservative agenda.

By then, everything will be decidedly fucked, and a Democrat may well win the presidency again, but at that point it practically won’t matter. Conservatives will have had plenty of time to follow through on their many bad ideas. The welfare state will be in ruins, the tax code more regressive than at any point since the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment, major industries will be freed from burdensome regulations of their environmentally and socially destructive practices, we’ll probably be at war with Iran, the Supreme Court and the judiciary as a whole will be packed with stalwart young conservatives working tirelessly to eliminate abortion access and make it illegal to sue businesses for poisoning children, America will be a “right to work” nation, and it will be a felony to be rude to a cop. Conservatives can make their glorious dreams come true, if they just rid themselves of this troublesome president.

As soon as Donald Trump picked Pence, and not some more Trumpian figure, like Don King or his own daughter, he practically made this decision for them. It would be crazy not to impeach him.

Goldman Sachs Says The Cost For A Small Robot In China Has Dropped Below The Annual Cost Of A Human Chinese Assembly Line Worker
In a note to clients Wednesday, Goldman analyst Yuichiro Isayama detailed six innovations which are gaining traction through 2017.
Isayama list six promising areas:
Small robots – cheaper now and able to work alongside humans,
Electrification of automation – actuators drive change,
Smart factories take shape as IoT manufacturing platforms come to reality,
More complex Logistics requirements drive greater automation,
Machine vision maximizes quality, productivity, and flexibility, and
“Softwarization” of capital goods progresses.
Isayama further adds that price erosion has now cut the cost involved with introducing machinery "to the point where users can seriously consider replacing workers" on Chinese assembly lines.
