    Mexico Hits Back With Higher Tarriffs On U.S. Goods : NPR

    It looks like the Obama administration is heading for a trade fight. After the U.S. scrapped a program to allow Mexican trucks onto American roads, Mexico decided to strike back. It's slapping higher tariffs on a long list of U.S. goods — including fruits, vegetables, Christmas trees and sunglasses.


    Fuck them! We need to round up all the illegals and send them home. Tariff that Mexico!

    Remember last year Bush tried to sneak in Mexican truck drivers over Memorial or Labor Day? Their trucks don't have to meet the same safety standards and their drivers don't make as much as American truck drivers.

    If we let them in, it will be the death of another industry that employs hundreds of thousands if not millions of Americans.

    Why not just NOT LET THEM IN. And if they tariff shit we export to them, I'm sure we have ways of paying them back.

    One good idea would be a month long crack down on illegals. Round em up and ship them back.

    They think they're having trouble now with their war, swine flu and shitty economy? How about we find half of the 10 million living here and send them back?

    And then stop buying shit from Mexico.

    And those auto plants and pharacutical plants we have down there? Bring them back home.

    Fuck Mexico! Or will conservatives now tell us why we need Mexico and dealing with this will raise prices and cost jobs.
