CNN? Seriously? I won't click on the link because CNN has been a baglicker ever since they got caught red handed shilling for big Pharma over Michael Moore's SICKO. Whether you like Moore or not they got caught lying about some of the claims he made in the movie.

They later apologized but the fact they did so showed me they were no better than Fox.........

Is he? Major changing of administrative posts is standard procedure in the US. The Dumpster is only doing what every other US president has done for decades. If he was actually draining the swamp he would start with his own cabinet.

From Eaglesmack's link...

""While this appears to be a large turnover in a short period of time, a change of administration always brings personnel changes and there is nothing unusual about rotations or retirements in the Foreign Service," the American Foreign Service Association said in a statement.

Acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the departures of longtime staffers is just business as usual."

It would appear you and Eaglesmack are on the same page for once

Misleading headline from CNN. They were not fired, they resigned. BIG difference. And no great loss.

All of you should take a break and give thanks to Donald Trump for being a beacon in a rough sea.

Those of you that are Canadian have the most to fear. Trump's secret death squads are massing on the border of the lower mainland, southern Onterrible and Quebec. Anyone living within 50 miles of the border is likely to be killed.

For the rest of us, living away from Trump's Line of Death, we are destined to be taken out by drones that will be dropping nerve agent, crop poison and a virus that causes flesh eating disease. If you have ANY hope of survival, the best thing to do is to 'hunker in the bunker'. You do have one built, don't you?

This is the official 'end of daze' that Nostadamus and a few others talked about.

In the meantime, while the Canadians are waiting for their long, painful deaths, some Barry Manilow.

Not originally spoken by Star Trek's Khan, but by Captain Ahab, in Herbert Melville's book Moby Dick. Just as Ahab plunges a harpoon into the large Dick (Moby), he speaks this line. And a good one too! For ye too have reached the end of daze.

I just watched Trump give a speech at South Carolina's Boeing facility where the new 787 “Dreamliner" is being unveiled. Trump said it was “built right here” in South Carolina, and that “our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports and more on products made here in the U.S.A." He also called for "a very substantial penalty to be paid when they fire their people and move to another country, make the product, and think that they are going to sell it back.” And said he'll lower taxes and get rid of regulations that send our jobs to those other countries. "We want products made by our workers in our factories stamped by those four magnificent words, 'Made in the U.S.A.'"
All fantasy. In fact, almost a third of Boeing’s Dreamliner comes from abroad -- from countries with high taxes and high regulations, good wages, strong unions, excellent schools including technical education, and universally-available health care.
1.The Italian firm Alenia Aeronautica makes the center fuselage.
2. French firm Messier-Dowty makes the aircraft's landing-gear system.
3. German firm Diehl Luftfahrt Elektronik supplies the main cabin lighting.
4. Swedish firm Saab Aerostructures manufactures the access doors.
5. Japanese company Jamco makes parts for the lavatories, flight deck interiors and galleys.
6. French firm Thales makes its electrical power conversion system.
7. Thales selected GS Yuasa, a Japanese firm, in 2005 to supply it with the system's lithium-ion batteries.
Oh, and the first delivery of the Dreamliner is scheduled to take place next year – to Singapore Airlines. Currently there are 149 orders for it from worldwide customers including British Airways and Air France.
In other words, contrary to Trump, the Boeing Dreamliner is made all over the world and will be sold all over the world.
His "America First" economics is total demagoguery. We get a first-class workforce by investing in their education, training, infrastructure, and healthcare -- not xenophobic grandstanding.- Robert Reich

Thanks for that. It saves me having to post that the plane will in fact, be made in the US. As well, Trump's statement from your article,

“...our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports and more on products made here in the U.S.A."

means that he acknowledges parts are made elsewhere, but he wants more made in the US. The author is a stup.

To clarify, some parts are imported, but Trump wants to see that changed. One cannot stop a production line or walk away from contractual agreements at the drop of a hat. Trump knows this. He's a businessman.

Finally, are there production facilities currently in operation in the US for all 787 parts? The answer is no, but plants can be opened to manufacture certain specialty production parts.

The article is stupid. We are not talking about tables and chairs, but a 787 that will be built in the US, using specialized a/c parts. His hope is to see less importation and more US production of these parts. Good for him.

I didn't know the asylum you live in is in the US. Trump, as a business man, reneged on many a contract and left many of his contractors in the lurch, not to mention all the people he screwed with his phony university.

US is the only place that can make airplanes? There was a huge industry until cheap US products drove them out of business - after profiting greatly from two world wars. The first jets weren't American-made

Where I live has nothing to do with it. You are an angry, dysfunctional old man, incapable of rational arguments. Your rebuttal, if you can call it that is unfocused and has nothing to do with my response or the original article itself.

Reneging on contracts would be Boeing's concern. His university has nothing to do with the production of planes. Your brain is fractured and your hatred is strong.

No, the US isn't the only place that can make planes. The US is one of a few places that can make planes of this type. If another country can beat the US to the punch, then US business must get better or sink.
