Ok, so you are a-ok with taking a bitch seat in macroeconomic international politics for the time being. Pay more than the big dog should pay as long as we are being a good subservient partner on the world stage? We haven’t used our leverage (which helps the liberal base more than anybody) in decades because we need to be a good partner? We’ve been playing bitch for far too long. Really, look at the disparity that we have with China rather than abstract shit you hear. I know it’s crazy to talk to businesses who have experience I this ad you would see them as an enemy, but know first hand what happens, tell me how we have gained at lest parity to China in trade in the last decade. I’m not going to paint you with a misunderstanding before you can clarify, but the majority of us have no flucking clue. Again, fuck trump, the guy is a disease, but fuck being in the bitch seat when we are the absolute buyer on the world stage. We are the bull, when we allow others to act as the bull, our low/middle class suffers and I don’t give a shit if the world body hates the bull, China sure as shit will take the reins and shove our faces in it. I’m going to live in upper middle class regardless, the liberal base will suffer or prosper based on our position.
I'm just saying it's not that simple. I'm not sure what leverage you are talking about. 'subservient partner?'
Jobs are going to go where the cost of labor is cheap. No tariff is going to fix that. Maybe we should be looking internally for solutions and incentives, but when all you can milk out of the Apples, AT&Ts, and Walmarts of the world is a god damn one time 'bonus' payment of $1k, and not actual wage growth, i'm not hopeful.
Let's quit screaming about the spics and niggers and question for a second why Joe WASP gets a god damn golden parachute to fuck up his company and a segue into fucking up another one.
Isn't that what the orange dotard in chief ran on?
And there's no amount of 'chest beating' that's going to narrow our trade deficit. Just because you think we are the 'world leader' in commerce does not make it so. It really is perplexing, this sense of machismo that embodies the average red-blooded American. Very redneck if you ask me. Again, this isn't the 1950s. Move on.
