Foxconn Technology Group is considering building a U.S. display-making facility for upwards of $7 billion, a major investment for Apple Inc.’s main manufacturer that may create tens of thousands of American jobs during President Donald Trump’s first year in office. The envisioned facility could cost more than $7 billion and may create 30,000 to 50,000 jobs, according to Gou. It would also bring manufacturing closer to the largest market for iPhones and iPads, a potential boon for Apple.Note the number 50,000. Take that, you tech-tyrant satans and economist satans. Bringing back industry is NOT technically or economically impossible. It's NOT pointless KKK TROLL WHITEBOY nostalgia. It's just a question of DECIDING TO STOP BEING EVIL. With enough of an economic incentive, even Applesatan can decide to be somewhat less evil.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
