    Amazon lost 2 employees last night when an EF-1 tornado knocked down a warehouse wall in East Baltimore.

    Ugh. Was going to buy some stocks today.

    My hunch is that stocks will move based on the House (not the Senate). If the Dems take the house, stocks will float upwards for a few days. If the GOP takes the House for some reason, stocks get slammed. Let's see if I'm right.

    Remember how the markets reacted 2 years ago? It may be a prime buy opportunity.

    Bad news for 737 MAX sales and current operators, at least in the short-term.

    Didn't Airbus have a similar problem?

    Yeah. Stocks up 500 so far today. Totally knew this would happen.

    We'll see if the Sessions news changes the dynamic.

    IIRC, Airbus' current concerns are with the Rolls Royce engines for the A350.

    Tyson just did something with their wages.

    Class 1 employees now begin at 14.90/hour (used to be $13, and my pay as of today was $14.10) and gone are the 3 month and 6 month pay bumps. Class 2, 3, 4, and 5 positions saw increases of $1.50-$2/hour, and gone are the 3 and 6 month pay bumps. The hope is it helps with retention.

    As for raises on the merits, they don't do that... been there since Feb 2017, and we only get raises as a whole. Depends on how well the company does during the fiscal year.

    The stock market likes a split Congress, gridlock. Why? Economic and tax policy won't, or is it can't, change much for a while.

    Frequently. The last time (two years) Ds had total control the markets went up 50%.

    Amazon to split HQ2 between NYC and NoVA.

    Covering both the sociopathic dbag bases. Perfect for them.

    Food for thought

    Perhaps it shouldn't be illegal, but state and local governments need to think a lot harder about the consequences, before reflexively giving away tax dollars.

    NYC and Northern Virginia are sociopathic dbag bases?

    Assuming your comment is serious. NYC and Northern Virginia believe in gun control, appropriate taxes, healthcare, women's right to choose, no tariffs, don't cheat on say everything, aren't racist, and they unquestionably hate Trump. The other half of America is much lower on my list.

    Sociopathic behavior expresses itself in many different ways; they don't have to be political Neanderthals.
