    He’s at it again...

    Trump Tweets and the market drops 620pts. This tariff war he’s escalated is not one that he’s going to win.

    It’s putting an undo burden on the American consumer and disrupting domestic businesses on numerous levels.

    On an importer level, there’s another increase in the cost of importation that’s not being talked about. Brokerage houses are now charging more in fees and short term interest as they have to pay the tariffs upfront before handing the cleared goods over to the importing company.

    I work for a Sporting goods brand and we have our National Show next week. We aren’t printing pricing until the last possible minute since we have some products made in China and will pass along any additional tariff to our customer in the shape of a higher price. And before you say “Make these somewhere else”, there is no domestic manufacturer of this specific type of product. Globally 95% of these products are made in China.

    The tariffs are a straight tax on Americans. This is not going to end well.

  2. Rock on:

    Another talk with another farmer today. Said he knows other farmers that are looking at possible foreclosures this winter based on the tariffs and the bad weather we had this spring which impeded a lot of planting

    Arent farmers supplemented with a lot of the wasteful subsidies wise politicians(like Ron Paul) used to speak against? Ron spoke against tariffs too. But yeah, anyone who has looked into Von Mises or Austrian Economics in general knows that tariffs are not healthy, and basically a tax added to the buyer(although I imagine there could be certain instances where they are useful). So though youve repeatedly claimed I never do, I am disagreeing with Trump and agreeing with you. Hopefully I can stop pointing out all of the examples now. :)

    As for tweets and the stock market, I'd caution one might be remiss not to give more critical thought to the amount of causality. This society seems conditioned to be hellbent on hot takes assigning blame to people. Both forums on here provide plenty of illustration, lol.

Heck, he even brags about abusing his power of office to help his son's illegal schemes in foreign countries.

    I like to get ripped on occasion, but if I was on the campaign trail I wouldn't be getting ripped like this known drunkard. Even subversive google and youtube still probably have examples of such you can see him in action for yourself, like many of us already have.

    You have a real way of picking a winner, bro. It's amazing how low some people will sink to further their TDS addiction. Even some addicts of substances that have been legislated against have more dignity that that.

    Obviously, you're off your medication, since I Never posted that I'm Picking Biden - but, since you're in full blown Trump-love mode now, you better think twice about who's "picking a winner"
