    The Bloviating Drama Queen will no doubt soon be staging one or more of his Hillbilly Nuremberg rallies somewhere in the intellectual swamps of Fly Blown Over America to crow about reversing his own boneheaded policy.
    For the tyrannical minority of yahoos, stooges and fools who attend these events and continue to support this demented, incoherent bunco artist and the rest of the treasonous Russo-Repubnant Klavern, hatred, racism and irrational thinking with one's adrenals are pimped as "values" - representing as they do the genetic cul de sac of western civilization.
    They've sold out their own morality for the sake of petty grievances and racial entitlement and forsaken the social compact in order to support a demented failed real estate grifter - a treasonous serial liar, who would probably be a retired used car salesman in some brownfield New Jersey suburb if his father hadn't been a black hearted slumlord.
    Below is what H.L. Mencken had to say about a similar class of idiots who once plagued our electorate (supporters of Warren G. Harding). The parallels are striking:
    "When Dr. Harding prepares a speech he does not think of it in terms of an educated reader locked up in jail,
    but in terms of a great horde of stoneheads gathered around a stand. That is to say, the thing is always a stump speech; it is conceived as a stump speech and written as a stump speech. More, it is a stump speech addressed to the sort of audience that the speaker has been used to all of his life, to wit, an audience of small town yokels, of low political serfs, or morons scarcely able to understand a word of more than two syllables, and wholly able to pursue a logical idea for more than two centimeters.
    Such imbeciles do not want ideas-that is, new ideas, ideas that are unfamiliar, ideas that challenge their attention. What they want is simply a gaudy series of platitudes, of sonorous nonsense driven home with gestures."

  • theylied1776

    Trump just told a bold-faced lie. His rationale for applying a 25% tariff on aluminum and steel was to get Canada and Mexico on board with applying tariffs on China for flooding the steel Market, remember?

      @Isitjustme Orwhat Well, there's the flaw in your dissertation. The Keystone Pipeline isn't going to happen. The project is stalled due to the use of (eminent domain). Eminent Domain CANNOT be used to seize private property from American Citizens for the benefit or profit of a foreign country or corporation.

      theylied1776 Here's what's really going on here. Roman Abramovich is a Russian billionaire who owns EVRAZ the 2nd largest steel company in Russia, whose wife is best friends with Jared and Ivanka. Just days after Trump was in office he signed legislation for the Keystone pipeline project to continue being funded in which EVRAZ supplied 25% of the steel. The wall that Trump so desperately wanted Congress to give $7 billion dollars for, you guessed it EVRAZ will be supplying the steel to the contractor SCLCO. Here's why this is so corrupt, EVRAZ may be a Russian steel company but they have a sister company located in yup...CANADA.

Ask yourself, if you were a contractor and I had the connections to help purchase $1-2 billion worth of products or. maybe much would you kickback to me..what would that be worth to you.

    Here's what we need to do with Canada and Mexico. We need dollar for dollar trade. We need to keep track of how many things they are selling us. Every 3 months we need to tally up the sales and cut off their sales until they catch up and buy the same dollar amount from us. How else are we gonna get rid of the billions of dollars of trade deficits?

  • handsoffmygun MF
    handsoffmygun MF 4 months ago +1

    I don't like tariff free trade with any country. Why subject our companies to competition from foreign countries? Canada only has a GDP the size of Texas, so our companies only get tariff free access to their state sized market, while their companies get access to the largest market in the world. Mexico has a GDP the size of Alabama, so us having access to their market is nothing when compared to the amount of things their companies can sell us. No wonder we lose hundreds of billions in trade.

    had to back down on steel and aluminum to get canada and mexico to agree to ANY trade proposal after Trump blew up NAFTA. proof is that he hasn't 'revived' the steel manufacturing industry in the U.S. as he promised his constituents. then he had to backtrack on imposing auto tariffs and now the chinese, not the U.S., have decided to call off further trade negotiations with the U.S. truth is they don't need the U.S.

      @TJ I'm sure you couldn't know this seeing it wasn't on fox "news". on June 1, 2018 trump put his tariffs on Canada and Mexico steel and aluminum and they countered with their own tariffs and now trump is caving to their tariffs so now we hear trump saying I have the greatest biglyist good ideas because I'm sooo smart, sooo smart look what I'm doing to help the U.S. by doing away with these tariffs, I'm the best president ever or in the last two years anyway, I love the poorly educated, dot, dot, dot, dot, dot, dot MERICA

    are the lib comments for real?? or are they meant to just fool the ignorant? "fixing a problem you created in the first place", "putting out fires you started in the first place". Do these people have no idea why the tariffs were put in place and what the goal was? Fairer trade has been achieved. The economy is growing faster than it has ever grown in the past 10 years. Unemployment is the lowest it has ever been for all groups of people, blacks, asians, women, etc.

    Funny how the crazy liberals think that tariffs are bad, yet they didn't know that American goods have some of the highest tariffs in the world when we export our products.
    Tariffs make American goods harder to compete with foreign companies, and that's why Trump is battling China in this tariff war.
    Honestly, some of you fools should really take a couple hours off of social media, and try to understand the stuff you think you know about.
    Its sad to say, but the anti-Trump liberals are the least intelligent people in this country, and the most brainwashed
    But since they feel morally superior, they dont even care if they are wrong or uneducated.

    Trump and his criminal group know exactly what they are doing.
    Create a problem and bet money in the markets that its a looser. Then go big in the market when you act like you did something good.
    Same thing goes with immigration. Make a big stink out of it so friends and allies can rob America blind holding and transporting illegals all over the country. Cost more to bed an illegal than it does a vet in a hospital.
    Nothing but robbing America blind.
