    Well there goes Christmas.

    Gonna hurt the market.

    This is the tariffs that Trump held off on because it was gonna kick off inflation.

    But that just took a back seat so we can have a trade war with China and take it in the pocketbook.

    The chosen one had a vision.

    I was thinking the same thing......

    It is really sad that some in our country have more trust & respect for foreign adversarial leaders than our own loyal opposition.

    Also—as any capitalist can tell you, as the price of a product or commodity goes up, demand goes down. Econ 101 lol.

    This will hurt China more than us because there are other suppliers for most of it. China is definitely voting democrat in 2020.

    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason and harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals must be protected and safe in their nesting places........humans must not.

    To abort something is to end something which has begun.
    To abort life is to end it.

    I'd pay 3 times what I pay now for the goods that I buy, effective immediately, if it helps my country win a trade war.
