I wonder if having a Republicon party in full retreat in Sacramento has anything to do with California being such a powerhouse?

Oh, right. Redfin is an infirmational service of a real estate brokerage. California Business Exchange is also a brokerage. The Balance is a personal investment site, as is Investors. Investors Business Daily is Wiliam O'Neill's publication. Not sure that he has a political party affiliation, and he tends to spread his contributions around pretty evenly between Dems and Repubs.

But hey, I guess they post info which is at odds with your world view, they must be "right wing".

This post and your post about Detroit in this thread have to be among your absolute weakest ever.

Harley-Davidson workers stunned by plant closure after tax cut

More “winning”, thanks to the tax cut! Employees winning, I’m sure, in Whell’s world.


Harley-Davidson announced a dividend increase and a stock buyback plan to reward shareholders, repurchasing 15 million of its shares, valued at nearly $700 million.

Like other corporations, Harley-Davidson is benefiting this year from the tax cut law passed in 2017, which slashed the corporate rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. The company maintains that the dividend increase and stock buyback is unrelated to the tax savings.

House Speaker Paul Ryan visited a Harley plant in Wisconsin in September and said, “Tax reform can put American manufacturers and American companies like Harley-Davidson on a much better footing to compete in the global economy and keep jobs in America.”

Uh huh.
