Trump Creates Farm Crisis - Taxpayers Pay Farmers

Message 1 of 108

EasyEd can't bring himself to criticize his Supreme Leader, who can do no wrong in his eyes. Meanwhile, read the financial pages of any reputable business sites, and almost all the experts are attacking Trump's idiotic trade policies. 

 

By the way, Toyota builds most of their vehicles in the U.S. (Kentucky?)

Wrong - his point was invalid. NFL rules are pretty well fixed, tariffs have traditionally been negotiation tools.

 

You certainly knew he meant - creating new Tariffs where none existed before or where the amount wasn't anywhere near the same......................

No I didn't. I cannot see the connection to the NFL. If you do - please state it rather than say that I do.

 

You frequently use Satire - rhetoric and hyperbole as well as exagerations and stretches of the facts - like what part of the Discussion mentioned - Ice Cream?

No satire - you seem very tight, very angry, very unhappy - all because of who our President is. A walk in the park eating an ice cream cone while smiling at the people walking by would do wonders.

 

 


 


None of that is True........................

 

I Love My Country - I served it in a War zone - I'm not about to sit idly by and watch it be corrupted by a Traitor............................

EasyEd illustrated what happens when you listen to Fox everyday. He totally misunderstands tariffs and how they impact us. The U.S. is not suffering from tariffs, we are far and away the number one economic powerhouse on the planet. If tariffs were hurting us as Ed claimed, how could we become the dominant economy on the planet?

 

EasyEd's logic, which is crying like a baby about tariffs hurting the U.S. would be similar to the New England Patriots complaining that NFL rules are unfair to them, as they win championships almost ever year.

 

Creating tariffs starts a trade war which is bad for American workers and our economy.


The NFL rules are easy to find - do you know where one might find the "Tariff Rules"? Tariffs have been around and fluctuating for many moons.

 

The intelligence of the Patriots comment is on a par with the obsession with Fox.


True the NFL Rules are easy to find - so presumably all NFL Teams know them - but the Pariots still beat all other Teams even with the same knowledge base - obviously it takes more than just knowing the rules..............................

 

Trump and his Cult Members might not know any of the Tariff Rules but they are very straight forward - if you put Tariffs on good & services coming into America - they become a TAX on Americans paid by American Businesses and Consumers...................................the do not punish China for Stealing Intellectual Property - they Punish Americans PERIOD FULL STOP

 

Neither does Trump putting Tariffs on Chinese Goods coming to America and then Exempting ZTE from the Tariffs punish the Chinese Government and Chinese State Run companies like ZTE from Stealing Ameirican Intellectual Property - in fact allowing ZTE to still sell their Intelligence Gathering Technology to US consumers increases Chinas theft of American Intellectual Property

 

BTW Trump tried running a competitor to the NFL - apparently along with not understanding Tariffs he couldn't find the Business Competition Rule Book either

 My only point to rich was that NFL rules are not a valid interjection into a discussion of the viability of tariffs. It is like throwing in stuff about "cult members" or "running a competition to the NFL".
