    Tandem culprits. Crazy is fond of Denmark and socialism in general. For South Carolina his viewpoints are in the minority. Lots of people there still salute the flag.

    Yah.. well.. tariffs are akin to shaving the left half of yer genitalia, pouring gasoline on the hairy forest of the right half, setting it afire, stabbing crab lice to death with an ice-pick or smiting them with a ball-pein hammer as they flee the flames into the open of the bare "kill zone", yah?

    But it DOES get rid of the crab lice, "the hard way" or other...so... don't knock tariffs unless you have a better plan...

    For either challenge, actually..

    That statement just proves my point that you don't know what the hell you are talking about. How can someone be fond of a place they have never been to? Also, I am against socialism because I think it would cause to much upheaval in the U.S.A. The presidential candidates that are proposing it in some form or the other I would never vote for.

    Yes I am in the minority in S.C. Also in the rest of the nation because I am an independent voter. I don't tow to any party line. Best person who I think can to job gets my vote be it republican or democrat, black, white,green red. Male or female.

    Don't you ever make the mistake of thinking you know me because I will prove you wrong 99% of the time.

    The interesting part is that some politicians here think they can discuss with Trump. I'm not under the impression he listens to his own advisors.
    This would be the perfect time to host your shop tour.

    There was a troll from Kolding
    Who liked to wear his wife's clothing
    He stared at himself in the mirror
    And cried, look at me dear

    For anyone who thinks that a trade deal can be made, you'll have to wait.

    Meanwhile, tariffs will be imposed on September 1.

    My guess is that the Chinese won't give in, until there on their knees.

    For investors, the NYSE will go to fresh new highs in October.

    Go figure.

    They aren't going to go to their knees. Nor even bow heads.

    They have made superb USE of the US market... more use yet of purloined tech, all manner of espionage, and lopsided deals with all-too willing alleged "victims".

    But they are not desperate for, nor bedrock dependent on, any of that to "get along" when no other trading partner on-planet has raised even the least significant of barriers.

    So why do you think they will EVER give in?

    DJT doesn't expect it.

    His "Job One" is simply weaning our own lazy opportunist class of alleged decision-makers off one of the stupidly suicidal flavors of the dumb-greed kool-aid.

    No fear. We are already finding others, most of them equally suicidal.

    "Succumb" is a foolish term. It is NOT a "zero sum" game.

    NO economy HAS to be "numbah ONE" for their populace to have a good life. It can make more sense to be far less attractive a target for the haters and baiters.

    One could argue, for example, that Norway does OK, Uruguay can be a nice place to live - or for-sure that the average Swiss - and not-only - is better-off than the average American.
