    He's working on it in all of these cases, but it takes time, and yes, it takes threats.

    Since we're all car guys, let's look at the situation with cars. The US has a tariff rate of 2.5% in imported passenger cars. Do you know what the equivalent tariff rate is when we try to sell US-built cars in the EU? It's 10%. China: 15% (down from a previous 25%). Does that strike you as "fair"?

    Wouldn't bother me that much since the high-volume boards are made right here, in Hatfield PA. You'd be surprised how little we import. For example, all our connectors and shells are made in Philly. Could we get them cheaper from China? Almost certainly, but I'd really rather not.

    No, there are no guarantees in life. But does the lack of guaranteed success mean one shouldn't even try?

    All of them. I'm very much in the "Entangling alliances with none" camp, and have been for all my adult life.

    Disappointingly few so far.
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Jack: I know that you won't agree (that's OK) and maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, and notwithstanding the tyranny of distance between our two very different countries (and my foreigner views of America's political machinations) - but even here in the very deep south, I reckon that I can smell the feint hint of the "I" word wafting timidly from the sweet scented halls of the Republican party HQ!

    Despite the recent hiccup at your last election, I've always maintained the earnest belief that America's governmental processes actually do work for the ultimate good of its peoples!

    You do realize that none of the allegations against Manafort are directly related to the Trump campaign, right? All the original stuff pre-dates his short stint with the Trump campaign by quite some time, and as for the recent accusations of witness tampering... Has the prosecution actually named any witnesses that they intend to call?

    Manafort allegedly met all the conditions for the judge to believe he is a scumbag & no doubt for him to revoke his bond now didn't he?
    Mr. Trump should let him rot, distance himself and far from the dude no?

    Oh, I have little doubt he's a scumbag.

    But I'm still a bit puzzled how someone be charged with "witness tampering" when no witnesses have been named.
