I told the Long Island City daughter to
1) cancel the frantic search for a condo. Real estate won't be skyrocketing after all
2) stick with her corporate law job, put a hold on applying to Amazon's in-house legal group

Gee, you would think the richest man on the planet (with bonus dic pics) would provide enough opportunities for graft. Not in the Big Apple Baby!!!!

Have fun getting displaced by rats. (Seriously, rats are taking over from corrupt politicians).

I've forgotten where the other HQ was going.
That would be a lot of new jobs for most metro areas to support without a huge mess. Traffic/housing/schools.

Upstate New York is where the help and jobs are needed.Time for Cuomo and other New York representatives to focus on this crucial part of the state
that such beautiful natural wonders and mainly why people visit.

I’m waiting on the traffic / housing mess from Foxconn. Seems like 15,000 jobs would be a bigger deal for Racine than 25,000 for NYC.

Great post, TM.

New York State quietly provides incentives that appear to be far beyond the 80's era programs you mentioned, including cash transfers, capital equipment purchases and 50/50 matching of other kinds of investments. IBM would be out of the semiconductor R&D business without NY State subsidies, for example. (They're already out of the manufacturing business.)

In the end I am hoping Foxconn will be a good thing.

Hoyden,

No ferry from BLI, but it is about a 45 min drive to the Anacortes terminal and you can park there and walk on saving time and $$. We would pick you up on the other end.

I might even be able to get you a crew car.

We get advertisements on local channels about the perks of doing business in New York State.

Captain Hate,

ChiTown wants me to tell you that Corzine's personal statute of limitations expired on 10/31/16.

He also says it is why Rudy ran over from Manhattan to endorse Chris Christie on Corzine's front lawn in Hoboken. (Ex. US atty's giving the finger to you know who.)

Jack is Back!

Wow. The Heather Neurath story is interesing. Wonder what that is about.

Been lurking between Rugby, Golf, dinner and just sitting outside in 80F weather, like now.

I am becoming a great believer that Trump has nothing except that he knows the dominoes are going to fall soon. All the 4D crap is going to be soon exposed as exactly that. It is a straight path, no curves. Goodbye the perpetrators, whether Comey , Brennan, Clapper or others. Just say goodbye.

MT, a friend and I did the drive to Anacortes, walked on, and ferry to Friday Harbor. A delightful and relaxing voyage. Then we rented a 3-wheeler in town and tootled around the nearby countryside. It was back when Obama shut down the parks. We snuck in anyway. The broad plan is to arrive Thursday before Memorial Day weekend and leave out the following Tuesday.

BTW, I love Hobeken. Lots of great restraurants. Now many condo developments with terrific views of Manhattan all lit up at night.

In 1951, ny FIL made the voyage from Hoboken Belgium to Hoboken, NJ to attend Columbia Univeristy to gain his MBA.

I apologize for posting off-topic old stuff so often....but I can't help myself.

This is an interesting post from last year about Mueller's indictments of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election....especially considering how Dems are fighting tooth & nail for foreigners today.

----------------------------
via Instapundit - "DA TECH GUY: Reading the Mueller indictment. Where’s the beef?"

"Section 1 and section 24 notes that it’s against US law for “certain foreign nationals” to enter the US without a visa providing truthful and accurate information to the government. Apparently these laws don’t apply to dreamers and those who brought them."...

"section 41 talks about identity theft including social security numbers, again this could be a charge against the DACA kids."...

"Oh my God section 44 accuses them of using HASHTAGS ON TWITTER and section 45 says other people unknowingly retweeted some of their stuff"...

"Section 58 notes these guys started deleting emails to avoid investigations and did so as far back as 2014 and 2015. I wonder what Hillary might say about that? Maybe they were all about Yoga."...

"Section 85 completes the list, the illegality here is that they pretended to be americans and didn’t register as foreign agents while doing activities that if done by Americans would be completely legal? Does that mean that DACA folks and illegals who have held political rallies will be indicted next?"...

Good Morning.

Did catch-up on the way home from Memphis last night and saw a few posts from you guys hammering "The New Math." It reminded me of that old short story of Isaac Asimov's about some dweeb in a future computer driven world who figures out how to do math with pencil and paper. Not Asimov's best in the writing, but the idea is one of his better ones, and only about a 5 to 10 minute read: The Feeling Of Power

It's also surprising how many articles there are on this 1958 story. It obviously rang a bell:)

Narciso79

I would suggest a stronger cognate,

Caddell was the pollster for McGovern short of his 22nd birthday, a Florida kid btw of harvard

jimmyk

Has this been discussed?

Andrew McCarthy, "Ball of Collusion"

The real collusion in the 2016 election was not between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. It was between the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration. The law-enforcement and intelligence arms of government were placed in the service of the Democratic presidential bid and, failing that, were deployed against the incoming Republican administration, with the goal of strangling it in the cradle.

A hardcover book coming out in March. It was linked in one of the articles linked in the last thread. I know McCarthy has been pretty unreliable, but maybe he's finally figured out who the bad guys really are? Though if he's true to form, he'll probably manage to slip in some digs at Trump.

Narciso79

Thinking on the press conference and the whole good emperor routine I was hoping for some sentinels to be unleashed.

Jimmy, Caddell was a Trump guy, which I didn't know till now.

Captain Hate

A quote from him on Trump's election: “Americans have decided to seize back their sovereignty,” Caddell said. “They are not going to be manipulated by their betters.”

He was exactly right. We refuse to be ruled.

rich, I made three trips to Santa Adairius Rustic Ales while I was in Santa Cruz; once to the original Capitola brewery and the other two to the Santa Cruz portal, the first with KK. The last time, my last full day there on Monday, I met up with a couple Beer Advocate guys; one from Nebraska by design and another local guy who'd arranged with the Nebraska guy to meet up and, by coincidence I'd talked with at the Capitola joint the week before. It was a fun time at a *superb* brewery.

No beer tonight since I'm still recovering from a cold the Hater Tot inflicted on me that made the red eye I came back on sheer hell.

Comanche Voter

I'm sorry but union officials and city zoning and permitting agencies are nothing more than effing pests. In Mafioso terms they all want to "get their beak wet".

I spent 15 years or so of my legal career writing construction contracts for capital construction in oil refineries in the Los Angeles basin. Union officials would file environmental challenges to whatever we wanted to do. So you negotiated a project labor agreement with them, guaranteeing a certain percentage of the job to "union labor'. And the environmental challenges magically went away.

Okay--it doesn't feel good (in fact it feels like extortion ) but that's the price of doing business. And I wrote a lot of those project labor agreements for my client.

I think Amazon looked at union officials and city officials in New York City--all waiting to get their beaks wet--and said, "piss on this". Good for Amazon.
