    Sokolka's Bison? What's the significance?

    One morning, not so long ago, I woke up thinking about Strawberry Fields by the Beatles. I wondered if Strawberry Fields was actually about a battlefield. So I started looking up Strawberry Field battlefield and then I came across a little Polish town called Sokolka in the strawberry belt of...

    Chinas's Growth Now At 27 Year Low As Trump's Tariff Knife Cuts Deeper

    China is feeling the pain as the continued trade war with the USA looms on. Trump has the red empire by the throat slowly cutting off its air and all he needs to do now is stay the pressure because sooner or later, Xi Jingping is going to cry uncle despite his pride because he needs us more...

    Most favored nation and retaliation.

    Most favored nation and retaliation: I'm a proponent of USA adhering to a policy of “most favored nation” even if no formal agreement exists between us and the nonbelligerent nations. During our history, we often had severe political differences among ourselves but we strived not to...

    When it comes to China and trade, Trump is like Chinese food. Won Dum Fuk.

    Let me tell you how this is working and how it should work. First, let's agree on the facts. China steals from everyone. Every country they trade with, they steal secrets from and they trade unfairly. So what is the most obvious way to beat back China? Think about it. Think about...

    Donald Trump: The Eternal National Embarrassment

    How do we endure a president like this? First he gets along with Russia, both commanding greater respect, lashing harsher sanctions on them while simultaneously trying to smooth relations. Likewise might similarly be said about Little Kim of North Korea. All is not perfect, but better. Now...

    The GOP has been in total control for last two years. Why are they so mad?

    I'm guessing because of all the damage they've caused. Trump ran on no tax cuts for billionaires. How'd that work out? Dairy Farmers going under. Soy Farmers going under. Millions losing healthcare. Increasing wage gap. The US is no longer the leader of the free world. More jobs, sure...

    The Champion Of Freer Trade

    Love him or hate him, you’ve got to hand it to Donald Trump. His trade and tariff strategy — risky as it is — seems to be working. The master negotiator is hammering out agreements — first with the Europeans and now with Mexico, much to the chagrin of his opponents — that are better deals for...

    Hilarious! FOX Business News echoing what Democrats have been saying for the last year.

    So right not, I'm watching Fox Business News with Maria Bartiromo and she is talking with Fox experts and they are discussing the economy. It's on right now. They said the economy is strong because of the Tax cuts and the deregulation. But it will slow down in 2020 because of three factors...

    Blaming this USA plant's closing on Trump's tariffs is a lie.

    Blaming this USA plant's closing on Trump's tariffs is a lie. Element Electronics company is obviously lying. If the USA levies tariffs upon components, I would suppose and expect we would do so upon similar imported components and finished products from all foreign nations. USA producers are...

    Retaliation within global trade.

    USA's trade deficits of goods and costs per units: “Economies of scale” are particularly higher within mass produced or mass delivery of goods and services.

    Did Donald Trump ruin Justin Trudeau's political career as Prime Minister of Canada?

    Of course Trump knows he’s lying about Canada trade Everyone in the media is giddy about President Donald Trump’s admission that he made up a “fact” that the United States has a trade deficit with Canada without checking the real facts, which show otherwise. Trump doesn’t care what the...
