    One extremely obvious problem with the Trump agenda is Canada is far left by US standards, has a big buy a passport program and is not doing all that well even with the tariff subsidy that Trump is trying to diminish/abolish. Newfoundland, as one example, used to be an independent Commonwealth that joined Canada in 1934 after going bankrupt. Quebec has a separate official language. Also in the last secessionist crisis at least one province officially announced their escape plan was to join the US. Bush the elder quietly told the provincial premier that the US was not interested in having it as another state. Whatever happens in the trade deal we got long term problems north of the border that can bite us in the butt.

    Now THAT is amusing! You blame the slow recovery on "republican opposition"? Here's a little dose of reality for you, Crepitus. If the Republicans hadn't taken back the House in 2010 the next item up on the Obama/Reed Pelosi agenda was Cap & Trade legislation...something that would have raised the energy costs of American industries across the board at a time when they were struggling mightily to compete with foreign competitors. You think Barry's numbers were bad during that recovery? They would have been far worse if the GOP hadn't stepped in and stopped the Three Stooges from doing further damage!
