Could Bannon be gone?

Some think by the end of the week that Bannon could be fired.

Trump advisers signal the knives are out for Bannon

Bridgewater, New Jersey (CNN)Two senior Trump advisers -- one inside the White House and another who recently departed -- signaled Sunday that the knives are out for Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's controversial chief strategist.

The comments come as a source inside the White House tells CNN that White House chief of staff John Kelly has soured on Bannon, a political operative with deep ties to the 'alt-right' and the former head of the conservative news site Breitbart.
Bannon is seen as pursuing his own agenda, which does not mesh with the power structure Kelly is putting in place, the source added.
National security adviser H.R. McMaster was asked three times by NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday whether he can work with Bannon in the White House. McMaster dodged the question each time and eventually left it an open question as to whether Bannon is motived by advancing the President's agenda.

What happened to posting links to articles?

I have clicked on 5 threads tonight that had excerpts from articles, but no link to the full article.

Didn't we demand links to sources?

I had an interview today, turned out it was part time work

I had applied for a full time technical position at Lowe's and received a call for an interview. I assumed it was for the job I applied to, but about an hour before the interview I received an email that I was not selected toe the job I applied to. My thought was WTF? But I went to the interview anyway and that's where I found out it was a part time job and they couldn't guarantee more than 10 hours a week and they could be in 2 hours a day. Top that off with no one would tell me what the job pays.

That doesn't even pay me to drive the 10 miles to work. They took my application and stuck me in a position that they can't keep filled.

They keep employees at part time so they can avoid paying g benifits.

A registered letter for a rejection?

I just received a rejection letter from a company that I applied to. It was sent by registered mail.

Funny thing is, after the application, this is the first I heard from this company. I have gone to 2nd interviews then never hear from them. This is totally new.

What does it cost to send a courier to your home to get a signature? Big waste!

Two gripes after a 12 day road trip.

When did the left lane become the primary driving lane?

Most of the trip I was driving my car, the last leg was a truck. Being in a truck amplifies the left lane drivers problem. Left lane drivers cause traffic congestion and create hazardous passing situations, passing on the right and cutting off the right lane driver to get where you can pass the left lane loafers. And if you are driving a truck, give up on ever passing slower vehicles.

The other pet peeve: When did it become normal to come to a dead stop on the freeway when it rains? It's a great way to end up dead. I saw no less than six rear end collisions today alone because someone stopped in the rain. If you can't handle driving in the rain, pull off the damn road!

An 8 hour drive turned into 12 hours due to thsee stump driving tricks.

Rant Off

I have been on the road for several days, much of the trip through red states. Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri.

Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee had all their rest area closed except for the tourist information centers.

Saving $$$ would be my guess. These fuckers are running g this country to the ground.

Ford to import Focus from China instead of Mexico

Detroit Free Press and The Courier Journal

Ford, which was under fire for much of 2016 for its plans to build the Focus in Mexico, said today it is shifting gears a second time and will instead import most of its next generation Focus cars from China in a move designed to improve the automaker's "operational fitness."

The move is the first major decision since Jim Hackett replaced Mark Fields as CEO of Ford last month. Hackett told the Free Press last week the company is working to figure out the best ways to spend its capital. Today, Ford said it will save a total of $1 billion in investment costs by building the Focus in China by canceling plans for an all-new manufacturing facility in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

My lunch experience in coal country, Beckley West Virginia

I was doing some long distance driving today and found myself in Beckley at lunch time, so I pull off the road into a local establishment, placed my order and had a seat. As I sit there, I can't but help to hear these two old toothless farts talking about the London terror attacks, on ask if the woman speaking was their Prime Minister, the responds don't know and don't give a shit. There your first clue, these people are uninformed.

The conversation progressed to their beloved, thing in the white house to which the refer to as President. At some point one said to the other that the president has his head exactly where it needs to be on this. I literally spit my food out and laughed out loud at them.

At this point, I lost my appetite and got up to pay my bill, on the way out, I stopped and ask the old fuckers if the coal jobs had come back yet and then walked out.
