Steel is also a strategic resource. Our nation should NEVER NEVER NEVER be reliant on any other nation for a strategic resource.
Yes there are issues with Union Shops and their negative impact on prices. We have to find a way to alleviate that. There’s not question of that.
At the end of the day, we need to be employing U. S. Citizens to build our strategic resources.
This goes for shipbuilding yards as well.
At then end of Trump’s presidency, it’s my hope that there will be no illegal aliens allowed to work on any of our government / military sites.
I had heard that some of our shipyards were using them. If that’s wrong, this may not be as big an issues as I had thought.
BTW: Thank you. I appreciate your response.
I’ve told you before....... patriotrism is the last refuge of a scoundrel
Patriotism is your only claim the fame
America can win any trade war given that the US is now energy self sufficient. The risks are Democrats taking control of Congress and China having the patience to outlast Trump and his policies.
Traitors hate to be called out. I get it. We can’t let you and your ilk go unanswered anymore. You all are much too dangerous.
Like communism and fascism in the last century, the threat of globalism will be eradicated this century too.
We will simply starting making everything here for our own consumption and export the leftovers. The rest of the world is in for a rude awakening if Americans finally adopt BUY MADE IN AMERICA FIRST BEFORE ANY IMPORT!
Look up the taxes Canada already has on US goods. Their idea of NAFTA was protecting every Canadian industry/product while screwing us. US Cheese has a 245% markup and US butter 298%. US grain and seed have other laws. US wine and spirits are marked up high and must be totally separated from Canadian. They have to have a dedicated cash register. Even T shirts from the US have an 18% tax. Yes, Clinton and Bush sure screwed us with NAFTA.
Between the two of us, you are the only repeated violator of federal law.
Ya, NAFTA is a joke I agree.
I just hope Trudeau is brought down hard.
Much of the problems started with the end of WWII. We bombed the Japanese capital stock into the stone age, but then rebuilt it through various lend/lease programs. Result: The US has continued to use 1890’s technology to produce steel while others have modernized their plants resulting in lower costs. US modernization has been driven by union costs, and protective tariffs/quotas under earlier administrations have made it possible to continue to use outmoded facilities. Hopefully, this new round of tariffs won’t kill the incentive to modernize like it did in the past.
I hope that as well. We have responsibility to do what is right. This shouldn’t allow the idiots to game the day.
So it’s safe to say Canada will be less and less an “ally” as China-rization continues...
Might as well start now with the tariffs.
He WAS right.
I was completely fooled.
I agree. Negative effects from a trade war could be higher inflation, higher unemployment and weaker GDP.
The Fed, back in the bad old days of the early Obama administration, was fighting the serious issue of Deflation. Their goal was to get inflation up to 2%. We are at about 2.8%....no problem. Its not high, its barely healthy. Unemployment? Gimme a break. We are setting records. Weaker GDP? The Atlanta Fed just raised their estimate of Q1 to 4.8%, up from 4.7%. That is NOT a typo. Thanks to Trumpanomics our country could not be in better shape for a trade fight to obtain fair and free trade.
“Ive told you before....... patriotrism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”
And Globalism is the first.
Count on it. Canadians are inherently anti-American. Why do you think I came here? It’s hard for a piss poor neighbor when the other neighbor is powerful and rich. I was there for 6 months when they burned US flags every day before the invasion of Iraq 2003? Remember those good ole days?
Perot was right. I believe Ross would have won had he not pulled out. Seem to recall it was a threat to his wife?
It is simply nonsense.
Yep - but try telling that to some of the folks who don't think they're paying more due to a Three Quarter Trillion (or so) deficit in trade but who are convinced they will go broke because of some leveraging tariffs designed for a long-term solution....
