Yeah Plow, the only place worse than the US with Libtards in the majority is.............Europe... How is that massive Soros immigrant relocation program going ? We westerners with half a brain just stand back and shake our heads and are going to prevent the brunt of it from taking place here. Trumps second term, you will find Libtards heads in stocks in the city square covered with tar & feathers............Looks like your country would have been twice as rich if your (real) MAN had payed his taxes in the past?
Sorry, just a silly comment from northern Europe :shame:
(It's interesting to read your politics threads. I see the "real man" on the Norwegian news every day. Kind of entertainment sometimes).
Hi Marty, look familiar?It's simple really, just build it here. My father told me 40 years ago when OPEC was killing us. (remember the gas rationing? I do.) "They need us, a lot more than we need them." It was true then, it's true now. China is a great example. Short term it'll hurt, long term it's just a big win.
Years ago at a trade show I had a guy come up to me from China. He had taken all kinds of pictures of one of our products earlier, a few days later he came back with a quote on how much he'd build our product for us in China. The numbers were unbelievable. In so many words I told him to pound rice. Their business model has zero ethos.
Life's simple, people over complicate things.
No one EXCEPT China wins when everyone sits on their hands and does nothing about the trade imbalance either. How does the American worker win when his job goes to China?Nobody wins in a trade war. Tariffs get passed on to the consumers. Things need to change, but in a carefully thought out manner and over time. Our President thinks he can just flip a switch and fix it. Such a sophomoric man...
And the enlightened thinking portion of US population just replied with...............AMEN !No one EXCEPT China wins when everyone sits on their hands and does nothing about the trade imbalance either. How does the American worker win when his job goes to China?
So how exactly would you suggest we go about making things change? Our politicians have had this trade problem to think about and consider ever since the China Trade agreement was signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1993. That is almost 26 years that China has been taking advantage of the US and no politician on either side of the aisle has done anything but talk and think during that time. President Trump has finally take some action of his own accord simply becasue Congress won't do anything. It's the same thing with the Wall. Illegal immigration has been a problem since Reagan gave his one time amnesty and no one has done anything other than give lip service to fix the illegal immigrant problem. Try using a little critical thought when you consider this next statement: How long do you carefully think about trying to save yourself from drowning when the guy you are sharing the life raft with has thrown you overboard for the third time? If you are BOTH going to survive you must agree to SHARE the sum total of the food and water but when they other occupant of the life raft has decided he wants it all for himself and doesn't care whether you survive or not the time for careful thought is over and action is needed if you are to survive.
Reality: Trump is not a Washington insider and owes nothing to any of the other Washington elites there. That makes him a threat to them and their cozy one hand washes the other setup where they all share in the wealth and get rich at taxpayer expense. Trump is equally hated by all Washington elites.

China has stolen technology which costs on the r&d end. Invaded our Educational institutions and has out thought us for a couple of decades. Their new cars are set to hit the market at 20% less than toyota kia honda, not to mention american made. They have pretty much slave labor. How does the US compete with that? Tariffs you say? Going to be an interesting year, unless Donnie claims he has made a UUUge deal with Xi.
