They were trying to skirt the sanctions on Iran to sell more product. Not the first time, won't be the last time, either.Sav0r said:Anybody find a summary on the Comey interview?
Also, what's going on with Huawei and Meng? Seems like they are getting the scapegoat treatment over falling markets and failing tariffs/trade war.
Sounds nice, but it's a bit more complicated. If you're talking about macroeconomics, the US is the world's largest economy, second in purchasing power parity, and top ten per capita GDP. And yet there are people runing around claiming we have been getting screwed and it's just not fair. Trump's domestic policies are looking backwards -- coal? refusing to acknowledge climate change? His steel tariffs hurt many more people and businesses than they helped, despite some anecdotal evidence ("it's been great for me"). It's "feel good" economics for those who don't understand economics (and xenophobes).J-Rod10 said:You can't allow someone to continue bending you over, because someone allowed them to do it in the first place.
Maybe it sucks for some people right now. Everyone will benefit from fair trade in the long run.
Help me understand here: what's bad about having a trade imbalance?J-Rod10 said:We have a massive trade imbalance with China. That's simple fact. It was achieved through shit policy, that should have never been allowed to happen in the first place.
Giving a kid water when they have hit that point of dehydration does nothing. It's already too late.
Are they saying she was provided nothing at all? Haven't seen that.
Haven't read anything on the SE Asians. They fled a conflict? Do people that flee conflicts get to stay where they fled to forever, normally? Or, are we ragging on Trump for doing what previous administrations should have when the conflict was over?
I'm not sure on the program. Seems to be some excitement for it locally. Guess we'll find out.teazer said:Is that the program that for some strange reason only seems to benefit developers including Trump organization and Kushner companies?
There is a disconnect between what I hear on the news and what the press release appears to say it's about, so it's hard to see through the fog on that one.
BTW, what we know as the Vietnam war is called the American war in Vietnam. How anyone today should suggest those people that fled the country back then, should now be deported is beyond belief. Of course there are people that should not be in the country, but that's no way to people who bought our BS that we would win that war for them.
As to the death of that girl, blaming victims is just too easy. All administrations struggle with the balance between being human and following the law. This current administration just happens to be more inhumane and less competent than most.
No. I'm wrong. They are completely incompetent and that starts at the top. I hear people say that it's time to start chanting "Lock him up"
