Yesterday the last car rolled down the line at Lordstown GM in Lordstown Ohio, I wept as I

witnessed this. Many watching the last moments face ruin and bankruptcy as there are not enough jobs to go around. MY son (twenty something) was lucky he was sent to Indiana last summer. Lordstown GM closed because of steel tariffs. Donald Trump is to blame.

It is simply to costly to make small cars in this country anymore-the tariffs combined with the poor sales of small cars sent the jobs overseas...and thousands will lose their jobs a result. The next time we have a gas price increase. Non-American workers will make the money. Foreign nations will profit and not us. The country that gave us automobiles will not longer manufacture them. It really is a dark day in the Unite States and does not bode well for our future. Below is information about the plant.

Thanks for my heart ....I really appreciate it. As many know hubs had emergency

spinal surgery to save his life. The surgery was a success but it cost a great deal of money (health care system sucks as we have often discussed) and we are waiting for disability to kick in. He will be out at least six weeks...been kind of down...although so relieved he will be fine eventually...so this brightened my day...I hope I can buy some hearts soon waiting for the temporary disability to kick in...hard to navigate the system. Thank you again...so nice! This is such a great site with wonderful folks...don't know what I would do without it.

A step-by-step guide to what happens if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam steps down

Please note the same group who published the picture of Northam has publish the story about the Fairfax accusation of sexual assault-Big League Politics

"Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax would be elevated to governor. He would become the second black governor in the state’s history. (Should Fairfax for some reason not be able to serve, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring is next in line. Fairfax has notably been forced in the past 24 hours to issue a statement rebutting sexual assault rumors.)
There would not be a special election to replace Northam. Fairfax would serve the rest of the governor’s current term, through 2021.
A special election to replace Fairfax as lieutenant governor could be called, though it is not guaranteed. Fairfax may appoint his own replacement, Sabato said, but the state legislature could mandate that a special lieutenant governor election be held in November, when many of the state legislative seats are on the ballot."

Republican activist are attempting to overturn the election in Virginia. Stop them.

The Legislature could force an election for the LT governor''s seat this year Per Vox's analysis. Democrats need to stop this shit ASAP. The GOP are attempting to overturn an election based on at best a 35 year old picture used against Northam and a sexual assault accusation leveled against Fairfax which the Washing Post decided was not credible. We better put an end to this shit now. Below is a couple of links to this story.
