Sorry, channeling Nancy...

I wish my company would kick back some of the benefits to the employees. But of course they won't.

As A board member of a small financial association, we had quite a bit of discussion about what to do with the projected savings from our lowered tax rate. After much discussion it was decided to give a one time bonus of $1000 to each and every employee. That's about 40 people. They seem pretty happy with thier crumbs.
We might decide to do it again depending on future earnings but it was announced to them as a one time because of the change in the association's tax rate.

That is a fantastic piece of Americana, love that movie

The book was good, I have not seen the movie.  I should put it on my list.

Well, it looks like the CNN thing was indeed pretty much scripted (did we expect anything else?) to an anti-gun agenda:

I know that every time we have a shooting, we have tons of "machine gun misinformation" hit the news, but this really seems to be the worst that I've seen. Certainly a good deal worse than Vegas, which wasn't that long ago. The anti emotions and outright lies are way over the top.

One other thing that worries me is that Trump, because he may hate CNN more than he likes the 2nd, may end up doing something dumb. I saw that he is backpedaling somewaht on armed teachers specifically because CNN called him out on it and he wants to make CNN look "wrong" (IMO).
I think they are on a full court press because they have nothing else to talk about going into the primaries and the mid-term election.  I imagine they also know if they are able to push Trump into signing gun control legislation, that will turn away a portion of his voting base.  I hope he is smart enough to realize that.

Seems like a silly thing to complain about, but maybe everyone notices that at different times.  You can see the same thing in TV and movies all the time.  Sex sells and everyone knows it.  Been going on for a long long time.  Had she been bundled up like the men, the photo would never have been looked at if it was published at all.

Nancy Pelosi is apparently doubling down on her anti-tax cut rhetoric with a 100 city tour.

Meanwhile, now over 50% of Americans favor the tax cuts.

The first couple of minutes are here:

One has to wonder how long it is before her own party works to marginalize her and remove her from leadership for being an absolute buffoon.
It is likely a 100 city tour to raise money since donations to the Democrat Party have been pretty low since Trump took office.

"About 50k initially."

That's a bit deceptive, actually.

Amazon won't look at hiring 50,000 people for the new HQ on Tuesday and have them all show up at work on Wednesday.

Amazon has said that it will take several years at least for them to ramp up to that number at their new facility.

Also, Ron Swanson is dead to me:

You are banned from the steak store forever, Ron you sissy.

About 50k initially.  Any shift in a blue direction would be small at first, but certainly add pressure to the generally leftward tilt (that most states are experiencing).
To say nothing of the leftist influence a large company can have simply by intimating that they will choose or not choose a location on the basis of their position on particular legislation.
