In other news, the FBI has closed its investigation of the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting that left 58 dead and almost 900 injured. The FBI says the shooter, Stephen Paddock, acted alone and "wanted infamy and mass destruction," but they couldn't determine why he wanted it.

Meanwhile, China has now formally filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) over Trump's tariffs on over $200 billion in Chinese goods.

Finally, the Trump Winery in Virginia is hiring more foreign workers.

Trump Winery, also known as Trump Vineyard Estates, LLC, is seeking the workers under the federal H-2 visa program, which allows US employers to hire foreign laborers on a temporary basis as long as no qualified US workers want the jobs. The work on the 1,300-acre estate, which pays $12.25 an hour, would start in mid-March and could run through late October.

    Hey, maybe the illegal workers Rump fired from his golf course can apply over at his vineyard…

    It’s very cold here. In terms of temperature.

    Off topic for this thread, but I laughed when I read this post over at Talking Point Memo: https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/foxconn-shift-focus-away-from-blue-collar-manufacturing. The supposed goal of then Gov. Scott Walker plowing billions of public incentives into the project was to secure thousands of blue collar jobs making LCD screens (hahaha!) Now? A Foxconn spokesman says plans to build LCD panels are being scaled back and possibly shelved. “In terms of TV, we have no place in the U.S.,” Woo told Reuters. “We can’t compete.” Walker had the very public support of business super-genius Trump for this debacle.

      It’s not called FoxCONn for nothing.

    I won’t say that understanding the shooter’s motives are irrelevant. They could provide valuable insight that might help prevent this in the future. That having been said, the matter of genuine importance (in my opinion) in the Vegas shooting was the shooter’s ability to arm him self to the degree that he did. That’s where this problem needs to addressed. Assuming the GOP doesn’t eventually come to the conclusion that mass shootings are as much a hoax as they think climate change is.

    Has Trump wine been as successful as Trump Water, Trump steaks, Trump Vodka, Trump casinos, Trump U?…

      “Assuming the GOP doesn’t eventually come to the conclusion that mass
      shootings are as much a hoax as they think climate change is.”

      Isn’t that exactly what Alex Jones and his conservative brethren have been stoking for years now? Every time there is a mass shooting incident like Las Vegas or Sandy Hook or Stoneham, they immediately start screaming “false flag.”
