The average price of coal exports per ton was $67 recently so that would equate to $26 million in exports to China.  In the most recent EIA report the US consumed 223 million short tons in Q3, 2016 so this equates to 0.18% of Q3 US consumption, although more, not exactly moving the needle.  To put that in perspective we imported $482 BILLION in Chinese goods in 2016 alone which is around $1500 for every man, women and child living in the US every single year.

Navy should return to 'goddamn steam' on Carrier. 
To borrow a phrase: it just can't get any sillier.

The polarization is just getting worse an will continue to get worse. This will all happen before it gets really bad. While social media can be a lot of fun and informative , the number of bully pulpits is growing in both camps and apparently so is the number of parrots.

Agreed.

Although - these words keep coming out of his mouth. My own thought is that people elect their idea of someone, then that someone starts doing their thing and shit gets real - like the example I posted above. Thing is though - any number of politicians could say equally inane things, it's just that they don't make it to print. 

I'm beginning to think the prospect of President Pence is more likely every day. I Googled betting odds of this, and one betting house in Ireland has the odds at 4/6 it'll happen. (Not that I put much stock in Irish betting houses.)

The idea of Pence as President bugs me even more though. He has a record . . . and in terms of exercising personal freedoms - it ain't good . . . .

I didn't like the options much last November. I have a feeling 2020 is going to be one of the most entertaining (yet frightening) elections we may ever see.

You know when Fox News has low poll numbers for a Republican they are actually really really low.

I hope he was kept informed from a contingent sent to Hanoi (During the visit to DC of Vietnam Prime Minister)... on the talks of our POW-MIAs. All I have heard much about was the $$$$ in contracts we are signing with Vietnam. Families still wait for closure almost 60 years later... I will be going to New Orleans in the near future to meet with the interim head of DPAA (Defense POW-MIA Accounting Agency) to discuss the issue. Hoping to get some answers... but will NOT hold my breath.

We seem to have a lot of interim heads of a lot of departments and agencies at the moment. Those slots should have been filled by now.

Maybe they have to finish all the team challenges before he announces from his boardroom table which ones get hired.

The DPAA was formed out of the lackluster merge of the DPMO and JPAC... We thought one agency was enough. It was headed by Gen. Linnington and he even said he would stay in place for at least 10 years... Along came the BANE of good Veteran Service entities... The Wounded Warrior Project and their downfall over a year ago and they offered Linnington a better paying position so... about 1 year in, he baled. So goes the 10 year plan. Since then... the position has remained open. So...the slot WAS filled but.. $$$$ talks and Bullshit walks. I have followed this Cluster F_ck evolve for decades... not just under Trump. Loyalties are out the window when King Cash is laid out. It seems all they want is money and no HEAD ACHES... This could be the reason so many go unfilled permanently as are the POLITICAL reasons.

Watched the news this morning and saw the President calling the mayor of London "pathetic".  This is very helpful politically and morally.  Very sad.

Do you see a trend?
GA-06 margins over the last 15 years:
2002:  R+59
2004: R unopposed
2006: R +45
2008: R +37
2010: R unopposed
2012: R +29
2014: R +33
2016: R +23
2017: R +4
College  and post college educated as well as younger moving toward Democrats, less educated / no college moving toward Republicans as well.  Clearly that explains why some still believe in Trump and his never ending lies......

Also explains why you only have a bunch of older white men sitting around making decisions in the Trump administration, or at least executive orders since they really can't get anything to pass of substance otherwise.
