    The 1920s-1930s All Over Again

    Greetings Ya'll,

    Truthfully, I saw this coming ( A Trade War),especially after I read an article about an Interview with Trump, as he was Campaigning to be Elected.

    When asked how he would handle the National Debt, he sated that he'd "Pay pennies on the Dollar." Uh HUh, .....

    Now, .... He's speaking as if a "Trade War" will be easy to win. SMH

    Is History going to repeat itself, like the crap that happened from the Roaring 20s to WW2?

    You should see how the Overseas Stock Markets reacted to the "Twitter-in-Chiefs" statements.


    Trump: "Trade Wars Are Good And Easy To Win"

    In a tweet that knocked US stock futures even lower in pre-market trade, sending the Dow futs over 200 points lower, President Donald doubled down on his support for tariffs on aluminum and steel that triggered an outraged reaction in global markets, and acknowledged that what he has started is nothing short of "trade war."

    hen a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win. Example, when we are down $100 billion with a certain country and they get cute, don’t trade anymore-we win big. It’s easy!

    Most countries - including Canada, China and much of Europe - have already issued statements condemning Trump's decision, which also elicited outraged howls from economists and pundits, who argue that the tariffs will make American goods less competitive, and will dethrone the US from global trade flows as shown schematically in the chart below.

    Most experts are saying tariffs and a potential trade war are going to hurt America more than it helps it.

    I'm more worried about the nuclear war that Trump might start if he feels too much pressure from Mueller as a way to change the subject.

    I think it is too soon to tell what will actually happen with the tariffs. Sure other countries will complain on the notion, you would too. The question is will the end result be less trade or investment is factories on our soil which brings in more jobs to this country.

    I am more concerned about the mess a trade war will cause...

    And I do not believe Trump will start a war...
    Rather someone will start a war with Trump, and Trump will finish it quickly... like the way he dealt with ISIS...
    However the left media will spin it so the public thinks Trump started it.
    As they always do.

    And the folks who pre-judge Trump daily (Trump haters, prejudiced they are)...
    Will believe the lies and spin, because they want to.
    And the consequences of not seeking the truth... well they will say it is Trumps fault also.

    Reminds me of that picture that says:
    You cannot fix stupid with duct tape...
    However you can muffle the sound.

    If GA did not want his presence on this forum to appear professional...
    He would put that up as an avatar... so the libbies could see how GA feels about them...

    *Installation is more important than the brand of equipment
    *The duct system keeps the house comfortable; the equipment only heats and cools (and dehumidifies)
    *Cheap is not good, good is not cheap; however expensive is not a guarantee of quality!

    Ga-

    ISIS is still holding territory in Syria, & a small area in Northern Iraq/ Syria.

    ISIS was evacuated from Raqqa (Sp?), not Defeated, & they were escorted, with their weapons & families, to that Area I just spoke of.

    Trump launched 48 cruise missiles on to that Syrian AFB, due to an Alleged "Sarin Gas Attack". Do You have CBR Training? If so, did you notice what the "White-hats" in the pictures/ videos , ... Did Not Have, & Did Not Do? That Attack, was a False Flag, & Trump's Generals, fully knowing about CBR Protocols, did not tell him that the whole thing was a Lie. Russia, has Warned America, that another Attack, on an Ally, will Result in War. Trump, & His Generals, as well as the "War Hawks" in Congress, both Republican & Democrat, act like that's No Big Deal, ... But Brother, It Absolutely Is, cuz', ... Th' Bamer & Bubba Jr. Depleted Our Military Forces.

    I Don't "Hate" rump, for that Matter, I don't Hate Hillary, or Th' Bamer, .... I Absolutely Do Not Trust Any of them, I Do Not Follow them, nor will I Uphold them.

    Regarding Trump, ... Ga-, I Researched his past, clear back to when his Daddy turned over development of "Swifton Commons", in Cinti., Ohio, to him. Ga-, I've physically been there, & that Development turned out to be a Failure,in many, many ways. I Researched Trump from that Time, clear up to when he was Elected, & I'll say here, .... He is Not the kind of Man, that won the Conservatives Heart.

    And if the alternative (crazy Hillary) had won, we would maybe be looking at mushroom clouds already.

    big choice.

    If we bring some more manufacturing back to America and build all these new factories, who is going to work in them?

    Where I live we can’t even find people to work at the factories and businesses we already have.

    I Agree Royc,

    I Lost a lot of so called "Friends" over Trump. Cuz' I insisted that all we had as Choices of Leaders was One Diarrhea filled diaper over another.

    Both wanted War in the Middle East, & to Provoke Russia/ China.

    Both want The Government to have More control over the people.

    Both made Promises to the Mushroom like Sheeple, that they knew that they couldn't/ wouldn't keep.

    We, America, ... Are in Very Serious Trouble, & yet The Zeal people have for their "Flavorite Political Party & It's Leader", continues,as they Ignore Reality, or "Parrot" what their Leaders say.

    I'm An American, & I want what once was, The Greatest, Most Powerful, Most Blessed, Most Moral, Highly Educated, Richest, & GOD Fearing Nation in The World.

    Not the Crap, that We've been handed since WW2.

    Smoot-Hawley act was a big factor in the great depression of the 30's. Tariffs....

    I can see having a spot policy of some tariffs on country's that tariff our products, but as long as the taxes are equitable in both directions, we should leave well enough alone. Blanket tariffs against even Canada are exceedingly foolish.

    Now that there is just silly.

    In the '20s and '30s, American actions CHOKED countries and caused them to retaliate to survive. Japan was cut off from oil and decided to seize its own. Germany was choked by stifling debt payments. I don't know what the Italians were thinking!

    Business has dealt with the stifling regulations of the US bureaucracies for years and will overcome the challenges of a measly tariff. We trained the foreign business people too.

    It is not like we are boycotting all of them, well, maybe North Korea.


    If thinking was easy,
    everyone would do it!
