    Just think, if you had losses due to Hurricane Florence and will have to rebuild, you will get to pay more thanks to Dumpf's ill advised and dumb as dirt tariffs on imports.

    But look at the bright side. With your paying more, sales numbers are inflated causing economic growth to look much better than it actually is. So, pat yourself on the back; you're right in there helping Dumpf grow the great economy he inherited from President Obama.

    And, you have comfort in knowing that none of Dumpf's properties were damaged, so the tariff's he imposes will have no detrimental effect on him whatsoever!

    MAGA!!!

    I prayed to the Lord on election night that the smelly post-menopausal ratbag and pathologically-criminal socialist twat Hillary wouldn't win.

    Truly there is a God. :banana:

    First, I like properly applied tariffs.

    Second, I don't like rebuilding in disaster prone areas. We can't buy out all them properties feasibly but lets shoot for the "most flooded" 10% and go from there.

    Third, this isn't that interesting yet: Swollen rivers near record levels as Florence looms (near record levels)

    Fourth, by moving folks onto the hills and out of the ditches we'll make America more competitive. I'm not here to support some welfare sucking strip mall, some obsolete downtown built ON the river before we had cars, or some subdivision stuck in some silly place protected by a welfare levee. No need to find excitement, this is a big country we live in not Holland.

    What about entire cities cut off by flooding, i.e., Wilmington, NC. The only way to get there is by air. What about areas not in flood prone areas? What about the east coast which has massive overbuilding, much of which is second homes for wealthy Republicans?

    And, as to tariffs, wealthy Republicans don't have to worry. They can easily afford to rebuild, despite tariffs that are punitive to most Americans. Tariffs are a class issue. Dumpf knows they don't hurt his followers, who are wealthy; it's the rest of us who suffer.

    Is that supposed to mean something? If Putin had anything to do with Hillary losing, I'd gladly shake his hand, buy him a beer, and thank him for returning the rule by constitutional law to this country.

    Did you say constitutional? Really? Dumpf has about as much use for the Constitution as he does the rule of law. Look at his repeated and aggressive attacks on the 1st Amendment. Look at his utter disregard for laws and proper procedures. This idiot actually thinks that he has the right to define truth. Wake up and smell the stink coming from the oval office.

    Far as the places cut off, we aren't abandoning them. FEMA is spending plenty of our money to save them. They just well, should have planned better. Not like we didn't know this was coming. I don't even live there and I knew.

    Far as tariffs and being able to afford things, I have no sympathy. Our standard of living is plenty high enough. There are plenty of $10,000 houses here in the Midwest. Come get one and a job at McDonalds and you can afford life on a 1980's level just fine. Every made in China toy you (or I) buy sends a certain amount of our money out of the country to fund some Chinese aircraft carrier. We CAN debate if it is part of the old Marshall Plan and if that is working. We CAN also debate if its time to end the Marshall Plan.
