    Um, no, HD was doing fine until the Trumpenfuhrer decided to put tarriffs on the raw materials.

    Interesting. So what I said must be true for the entire supply chain, and they can't recover fast enough for the end guy to survive.

    There isn't all that much difference any more between the living standard of an American worker and an Asian worker. What if the higher wages in America are pushed because of financial reasons such as household debt and currency exchange rate, both punishing Americans in contrast to Asians.

    Yes but those lands are not Russian. They belonged to China for centuries before the Soviet Russian expansion.

    This "There isn't all that much difference any more between the living standard of an American worker and an Asian worker" is offered with absolutely no verification. Those of us who have traveled the world over now that the assertion is absolute hogwash in many places in Africa, South America, Asia, and the Mideast and our Appalachia.

    The assertions that "higher wages in America are pushed because of financial reasons such as household debt and currency exchange rate" is true because the purchasing power of high wages allows such debts.

    No, automatic underwriting by the government in exchange for bank secrecy is what pushes every price up, including the cost of labor and wages. And working people have houses in Asia too. Something many Americans can't dream of even after work.

    "China fires SIX WARNINGS to US Navy in South China Sea ‘This is China...LEAVE IMMEDIATELY’
    Each time the aircraft was challenged by the Chinese military, the US Navy crew's response was the same.

    The response was: "I am a sovereign immune United States naval aircraft conducting lawful military activities beyond the national airspace of any coastal state.

    "In exercising these rights as guaranteed by international law, I am operating with due regard for the rights and duties of all states."

    Okay, when something is called the "South China Sea", I think most reasonable people would assume that belongs to China...

    not seeing a problem here.

    Why is any of this our problem again?

    That's too funny Joey...and really makes you look like a fool.

    You think the ENTIRE South China Sea should be controlled by China. You might want to look at map, before posting silliness.

    That's because you are both a moron, and an ally of anything anti-America and anti-civilization.
