Who Pays For New Technology That Kills American Jobs? Americans Do.

The Wall Street Journal - States Wire Up Roads as Cars Get Smarter.  Here is the first sentence in the article, "Planners say ‘smart roads’ will unlock benefits from self-driving cars, curb accidents, but costs are high".  And who is supposed to pay for all these improvements that will cost 3.1 million people their jobs? You through your taxes and the drivers through taxes on transportation services like the gas tax.

The Jerusalem Post - How will Trump’s economic outlook affect Israel and the world?  Funny how the Israeli's don't think how Trump is anti-Semitic or a Russian pawn when they have the most to lose if he was.

New York Times - Trump Says Intelligence Officials Delayed Briefing on Russian Hacking.  There a people who believe themselves to be "liberals" that are upset that Trump doesn't trust the intelligence organizations. Hmmm, you know who trusted them the least? Kennedy. He believed they lied to him about Cuba and the Bay of Pigs. He also distrusted them over going to war in Vietnam. Turns out he was right, we entered the war based on a lie called the Tonkin Gulf episode.

Washington Post - Did the Clinton Foundation pay for Chelsea’s wedding? Now the Washington Post is saying Hillary lost because people thought the Clinton Foundation paid for Chelsea's wedding dress. This is just pitiful.
