It was 30,000 and it was her decisions that lead to the needing to layoff in order to survive. It's significant because she's running on her "knowledge of the economy" and her "business skills".

No, because there's actual compelling evidence against her.

No because there haven't been 7+ investigations even those conducted by her sworn enemies that have all shown her to be cleared of any negligence.

But hey nice try

Let's not forget that those layoffs were so she could outsource this jobs. And let's also not forget that she made her soon-to-be fired employees train the people who got their jobs.

Maybe the people don't want business as usual, but if you do, by all means vote for her.

I think this is just the latest thing she wants to fail at, after failing at HP and running for the Senate.

As much as I hate to say it, I have to be in the forum minority on this issue I think.

Globalization is a bitch, and that ship has sailed (no pun intended). We'd be better off accepting and adapting to the future, IMO than trying to fight it. The invention of high-speed overseas travel and instant global communications really made it inevitable. We can't have one without the other. A locally-focused economy existing in a world of global communications and logistics would be so horrendously inefficient that we would be screaming for the situation to be as it is now.

Yes, it's not ideal, but it's happening whether we like it or not, and the sooner we take measures to adapt to the new way the world works, the less painful it will be.

The second part of that post is just insane, though. There's no justification for that.

well, this is a strange presidential election cycle,

for the GOP I have always presumed Jeb Bush wold be the likely candidate, just like I saw Romney being likely for the 2012 candidate
the opposition to Jeb and his slip ups this early are much worse than anything Romney was experiencing at this stage of the game. With all that said, I'd say Scott Walker has the slight edge.


and I think Scott Walker could give Hillary a tougher race than Jeb Bush.

The only people in the Republican field that have any chance of defeating Hillary are Jeb and Rubio because they are the only ones that can defeat Hillary in Florida. Remember, all the Democrats need in 2016 to win in the electoral college is their Blue Wall + Florida. Just those 19 states get them to 270. If the Republicans pick anyone other than Jeb and Rubio, the race is will be over!
