    China will pay the costs of the tariffs, it not then the Mexicans will. No cost at all to us winners.

    The 99% will still face the increases and the burden of earning enough to take care of family, health, and debt. The 1% have never had to worry about those things.

    Making America Great Again for moms outfitting their kids for back-to-school. Not to worry, nobody in America lives paycheck to paycheck. Were all can afford rent, food, health care and clothing. Those that can’t we just won’t see which means they don’t exist. They are “fake news.”

    There is no malnutrition in America. The then-Republican-controlled Congress declared that malnutrition is not a recognized medical diagnosis. Problem solved, legislated away. Likewise the term, “at risk population” has been voted out of existence.

    Next on the chopping block, Poverty. What poverty means has been consistently re-defined to lower and lower incomes (in spite of rising costs of living). So why not just legislate it away too.

    Isn’t America Great! No malnutrition, no at-risk populations, no poverty. Everywhere you look, affluent white people (just don’t look too hard). What a country!

    If it is no sweat off Trump’s back then it is no sweat for America.

    Enjoying the wizardry of the trumpster yet? Bluster works in some cases (got him elected president after all) but when dealing with intelligent beings.. they see past that and show him (the trump) to be a fool.

    Considering China’s experience/history, why hasn’t the big deal maker figured out a way to get them to build his wonderful wall?

    Tariffs are effectively pointless. The help no one and hurt everyone. We must remove any all tariffs with our trade partners if we want to get anything done.

    Trump fails to understand what a “trade deficit” is and how it affects the money supply. He thinks at the grade 5 level and quite simply fails to grasp the fact that a trade deficit has nothing to do with actual debt. BTW, China own USD$ 1.1 Trillion of our debt. Money borrowed by 43 to fight his wars because, a tax cut for the FILCH mattered far more.In todays paper I read an article in my local paper-now living in one of the reddest of red states that stated basically that Trump is simply unable to grasp concepts about trade and the M1 money supply, no matter how many times he is told. IOW the article said that Trump was too stupid to grasp trade concepts that farmers and ranchers deal with on a daily basis. Yet they are still praising Trump. Stupid is as stupid does. So China is going to target those states that voted for and still support Trump and who are also represented by POT Senators/repsFILCH=FILthy riCHPOT=Party of Trump aka the GOTP

    Buy American made trees! (Or has the price now risen because we are no longer importing them from Jaina?)

    Went shopping yesterday; noticed the prices were already going up on some staples we usually buy.

    Next Republicans will claim that tariffs are a “patriot tax” that we should all be proud to pay to Make America Great Again.

    The old saying " You can’t take it with you" when you die is coming true. I will not have anything to take!

    When I was a kid there was a “Five and Dime” store that actually had only items selling for less than 10 cents. Then it started having stuff for a quarter, even a dollar. Then the penny candy went away. Then it became the “S & R” (for the owners) with no price restrictions. Then it went out of business. The Dollar Tree etc. are the new version of that concept, but it won’t be long before they have to change the model (you can’t afford to pack a smaller can of beans or just two candies to the bag).

    People want trees for a dollar, but complain that wages didn’t go up much in the last decades.
