Those kind of anal people get my attention for about 5 seconds, tops.  Typical of the global warming cult.

It takes a lot to make me nasty and snarky.
I recall slamming him on ACOC and feeling a little bad about it.

I guess he is now an unperson.

Nah, I'm pretty sure IT's still a person ....... just somewhere else.

Take a page from Dr. James Dobson's book & forgive yourself.

The GOOD news is that (like murder) slamming these idiots to the ground gets easier each time you pull the figurative trigger. After a bit of time . . . it's downright fun!

I found an interesting and informative piece on control and tariffs and such.  It's long, but I would be very interested in hearing opinions .....

The destruction of the U.S. industrial and manufacturing base is EXACTLY WHY the wealth gap has exploded in the past 30 years.

Yep.  The only question should be, are you and me prepared to pay higher prices to bring back our manufacturing base?  It can be done.  It probably would be best for society to have something do to for those who can't "learn coding."  But is it worth the price?

I'm wondering if higher prices will be the result, after a time.  Won't those industries face competitors here resulting in lower prices?

As far as the Ag business goes I agree with what is said, the corporations call the shots...family farms, due to punitive tax policies (especially with regard to estate inheritances [that hit all hard, but especially family farms]) and growing (now predominate) corporate competition and the regulatory laws (crop rotation, ground water, wetlands, runoff) and crop insurance made it worse for a family farm, it is an oligarch run industry.  Breaking that up and reversing course (valuable enterprise IMHO) would be harder than reviving manufacturing...but the latter would be hard as you would need to have strong right to work laws to keep the unions from shooting wages and benefits through the roof as well as more local accountability and less federal regulation (EPA, etc).  Again, doable and desirable but one tough row to hoe.  In the short term I think there would have to be some higher prices for consumers during the transition, some of that could be lessened with tax breaks and less regulation...I would expect a long ramp up period and then stability in prices as the reorganized industries balance out.

Sounds like Mexico is coming onboard to Trump re-write of NAFTA, putting pressure on Canada...but the devil is in the details but I am cautiously skeptical...I would be more pleased if we divested everything South African and slap some hard sanctions and embargoes on those racist genocidal thieves!

  South Africa is an aside for now. The NAFTA is of more long term importance to us as a nation. Can't take eye off that ball.

I'm pretty sure Trump can walk and chew gum at the same time.
