I wholeheartedly disagree with his compliance with their requests. I just want to support the AC's rationale for why the engineer was selected.
That sort of thing does happen when you do things without appropriate planning permission.
That was the way I understood the world to be before Uber came along and demonstrated that with enough money and placated constituents, local regulations can be ignored by big business.
Perhaps Trump is proactively offering Musk a pardon for his personal airport tunnel route in exchange for not productizing the TBM (Tunnel Boring Machines) and selling them to Mexicans looking to circumvent the border wall.
It's tunnels all the way down!
With all the triumph of tyranny I've been watching since the 20th, this really made my day. Thanks.
...join hands with Russia and Turkey to crush Isis.
You are trying to paint Clinton and Podesta as puppets of Russian lobbying money, while claiming the DNC also promotes Putin as a boogeyman. Kind of emphasizes the lack of real influence this money had on Clinton. You repeatedly reference this Saudi oil money going to the Clinton Foundation and paying for Chelsea's wedding, but where are the details on the quid pro quo? What was gained for them or the Russian bank?
I think we're getting tired of your broken record of "yeah, but Clinton collected money from xyz." Why don't you build up a stronger case for why Trump should hold hands with Putin to destroy Isis? We would all like to see your references to the great and wonderful things Vladimir Putin has done that would help explain how his involvement in Syria is only out of a humanitarian interest. I am very curious to hear more about your rationale for Donald Trump developing closer relations with Vladimir Putin.
..instead of having the US join hands with Russia and Turkey to crush Isis.
The Russian interest at play here is not to crush Isis, but to crush the economic sanctions against Russia for invading Crimea and trying to take over Ukraine. These sanctions are crippling the ability of the Russian Oligarchy to enjoy their wealth and amass more.
Do you think Paul Manafort was advising Trump on how Russia could join hands to help the US destroy ISIS, or do you think he was telling Trump about how all the Russian oligarchs would love him if he were to remove these annoying sanctions?
Trump has a track record of championing making money over punishing wrong-doers. Consider this episode where he wanted a convicted rapist to avoid prison time so his casino could profit off of his boxing match--
Trump and Tyson are old friends who did business together in the late 1980s, when the real estate mogul promoted and hosted several of Tyson's fights at his Atlantic City casinos and even fashioned himself for a time as the boxer's "business adviser." And in a largely forgotten episode, Trump came to the boxer's aid during one the darkest moments of Tyson's careerâ"his 1992 conviction for raping a beauty queen. To save the champ from being locked up, Trump pitched a highly controversial proposal that would have essentially allowed Tyson to buy his way out of prison.
It is much harder to find a job than to keep one.
