Trump-a-dump-dump.....

Like many people I was totally stunned to see Donald Trump w8n the election. 8m so tired of people saying how did he win? Or per saying we have the two worst candidates running. I do recall there being an election for both the democratic nominee and the Republican nominee. We had other opti I ns you know!!!! I am a Clinton supporter all the way.
I think the election. Was rigged. Trump 0layed the rigged card already and was attacked and accused of speaking against our democracy and disrespecting our political etiquette. So no one wanted to play that card again after scolding Donald Trump for it. That was smart in his behalf. We can only hope and pray for the best. ...

I don't like getting into politics on Jobcase, but I do agree with waiting to see what happens. Maybe he'll bring back jobs. Maybe he won't. Too soon to tell.

I think that it's a great thing Steven Ransom - more people being involved in the economy is always a plus. I just hope all those jobs are ones that people are happy in, and able to feel empowered in their worklife!

As much as I'd like it to be at 0%, we must understand that national and international trade drives production. Other than that, a steady rate is a good rate.

Another thought

It's cool if you have children. I pretty much don't care because you have to take care of them not me. I have zero tolerance for the bashing of races and so on. We're all in this world. What I can say is everyone needs to get registered to vote and actually do it. Just because you may not like the candidates don't mean anything. The main reasoning is if you don't vote then why be upset. Look at everyone that didn't vote because they didn't like the candidates. They all lie. That's what politicians do. Check the history. It's just worse and for the one's that voted for Trump and thought he was actually going to help and are now wishing they didn't. Shame on you. Accept it move on and vote next time as I explained to my son. We decide who tells us anything and we also help decide the economy. Now what's the point in voting for Trump if he the whole time was for Russia and now trying to cover it up. He is the now Nixon. He will be impeached and as I read all these articles of people being deported due to dumb stuff. It's a waste of tax payers money which he is trying to get more of because he was denied extra money for his lavish lifestyle. how dumb are we?

I agree there is a civic duty associated to voting but some folks believe their vote won't make a difference in an election. I've heard others say that voting for the lesser of two evils is also not a good option.

#YouWillNeverBeIgnoredAgain - My Letter to #President #Trump

I've sent this letter to President Trump thru White House Web Site's Contact Page.

Dear Mr. President,

Yesterday I was very impressed by this part of your Inaugural Address: "You will never be ignored again". It sounded as a great music because after my 2.5 years job search (900 applications and 40 interviews) I had no job offer.

Earlier (2015 and 2016), I've contacted with President Obama on the same topic and received generic replies referring me to multiple job related websites which are rather "dead-end".

I've received US Government sponsored WIOA IT Training in June-August 2015 (total cost $4,000.00) which however did not land me on the Databases Developer job because of drastic experience (5+ years) requirements set in motion by employers.

Let's set in motion this Motto: "You will never be ignored again" in Employment area.

Thank you,

What's gonna happen now?

Trump's our next president!! So what the hell does that mean for jobs? I heard that he'll bring back jobs to America. Please please please - it's time we stop shipping them out overseas. But I'm worried because people are warning we're going to have another recession with him in office? I don't know what to BELIEVE!!

Well the Market's been up, way up for over a week. Businesses are now optimistic, coming off of the most antique business administration in history. corporate tax rate which is the second highest in the world, get rid of thousands and thousands of unnecessary regulations that was stifling the growth of businesses Barack Obama's the first president history never to hit 3% growth in 1 quarter, yet he doubled the national debt. Increase food stamps by around 40%, people on welfare, got rid of the work requirements, could probably sit in the Oval Office and do nothing for the next four years touch the economy and do better than Obama. Renegotiating trade deals, scrapping Obamacare allowing for Interstate health insurance, the variety of different health plans coming in all different types of services will create more jobs in health insurance industry, recommitment to rebuilding infrastructure Obama never got to "shovel ready jobs."

We do have to worry about it the housing market Obama double down on subprime Market, lending too many unrealistic credit scores, no money down, artificially suppressed interest rates, government backed loans, were all precursors of last housing crisis, with one exception there are no fraudulent indurance Securities being sold.

Trump has Steven Moore top notch libertarian economic advisor and other excellent economists advising him like Larry Kudlow, we should be good

Don’t Drink the Water! Opt Out for the Kool-Aid Instead

Is this another fake news scam to get more people to jump on the President elect bandwagon or did Trump really influence Ford Motor Company's decision to opt out of Mexico and turn to Michigan instead? When can we expect these new jobs in Michigan? http://www.cnbc.com/2017/01/03/ford-canceling-plans-for-16-billion-plant-in-mexico-investing-700-million-in-michigan-expansion-instead.html

It's Coming Soon. .

HAPPY New Year 2017 everyone! Let's hope it's a great year for all of us. I like to keep job boards and Linked In separate from the news sites but have to ask and almost NEED to know if this is just my perspective as a Cali girl native I.B., thank you. Does anyone believe that that thing on Donald Trump's head which (SHUDDER) will take the oath of office come noon on 20 Jan 2017 will do a good job or will he crash the economy? I was very skeptical to let business people out of the box to run for public office because public off- ice(sic) IS a profession like it or not that's why you start at the bottom and run for a seat on your local city council then over the years work your way up the ladder of elective office until as a senator or governor you decide to run for President. Now however that that thing on his head can be elected to the most powerful office in the world with NO past experience in elected office and a civilian to boot I'm going to redo my resume so that the little things I used to do on the side are now nonprofits and I am the CEO and going to apply for jobs at a much higher level because to repeat if that thing on his head can take his new job - I'm going to be sick - then I can do it MY way. (IF as I suspect all his ideas totally tank the economy it will just prove my long held opinion that this is why we should not let business majors into politics and definitely not let them hold public office.) Sorry if this rambles but even after a lot of thought I still had a very hard time to write this and respect the office just not the soon to be office holder. Let me hear from you with honest opinions good and bad. Happy New Year 2017 everybody! Love you all Katie. P.S. The civilian aspect of his resume would not have been such a big deal except that he was the one who said that he was smarter than the generals and according to the Washington Post and the LA Times doesn't take his security briefings basically well ever because he's just SO (i) (b) much smarter than the rest of us and "I'm, like, a really smart guy".

Its going to crash. Housing market is going to crash as well. Jobs aren't coming back the labor is cheaper elsewhere. Most are using robots and his pick for labor secretary is all for cutting overtime pay, breaks, family leave, etc. Everything that the president elect is saying is nothing more to keep people on edge and waiting to see what is going to happen. What has happened instead of cleaning the swamp he's filled it with more alligators who have no experience, the wealthiest people who have screwed others like the working and middle class people into paying their tax bills while they receive tax returns. Its going to be nothing but trouble.

Lol. I'm definitely not a business person. My background is as a scientist in bio tech. Katie I was mostly being flippant but I really think we are in a lot of trouble. Patience's post pretty much sums up conversations I've had with my dad. Patience's post sums it up so I don't need to elaborate on it

I don't know what to do anymore...

I'm a teacher that is what I do Best. On Monday Dec 17th, they terminated my employment saying that I was not a good match for what they were looking for. I've been teaching math and science, English ESL & French FSL for almost 12 years without any complaints!!! I always had students with either ADD H trouble or with the Asperger Syndrome. It was a private school and they wanted near perfect scores for all students. Basically ''cosmetic'' A & B so that the school has a near perfect image...!!! I was fired because I was giving the right grades !!! What is wrong with the education system in this country?? We have to hide the truth about our kids failing to learn basic concept.

Thank God!!!! Why are we beibg forced to pay through the nose for something we can't afford to use. When you're paying around $300 a month through your employer and your deductible is $3800, what the hell are you paying for?? Major medical?? You rarely need that so why pay every month of every year for it? Who is being helped by this? No one that i know i assure you! On top of that they made this same practice illegal when the mob was doing it so why is the government allowed to extort money now? The sooner they repeal this asinine law the better. Frankly i feel we should all be reimbursed for our own government forcing us to spend our hard earned money on a service the majority of us were never even able to receive any benefits from.
