Four Quickies

  1. General Motors said Tuesday it will invest $1 billion in its U.S. factories and didn’t say Tuesday how much it will invest in robots to replace workers in its U.S. factories.
  2. U.S. Air Force investigators believe PTSD led an airman to kill his commander last year and it had nothing to do with being part of a massive, global system for killing people.
  3. Pres.-still Obama on Tuesday commuted the sentence of hundreds of people, including whistleblower and leaker Chelsea Manning, just to piss off Donald Trump.
  4. Pres.-elect Fucking Trump reportedly is considering firing 20% of federal workers, according to a right-wing journalistic fantasy that fails to take into account just how much this would fuck with Trump’s job-creation numbers.
