Trump is spot on Re: Nord Stream II pipeline. If we are to help defend Germany, they should not be buying Russian oil/gas. Reliance on Russian energy puts them in a compromising position. Why should we bankroll Germany’s defense against Russia when German energy purchases are lining Russia’s pockets? Isn’t Russia the biggest geopolitical threat to Germany in the first place? Buy American LNG exports before turning towards a geopolitical adversary!

I was just talking to a younger friend who goes to Cal and It seems like the kids these days hate FAANG or at least Amazon and Facebook are not desired at all. I personally don’t see too many issues working at either Amazon or Facebook because I work at Deloitte where I’m sure we have many questionable clients and worked in financial services before.
