    BS.

    So, you would sell your car without a replacement without even a bicycle for transport and hope?
    Too much central planning?
    That's what the government is for.
    Yeah, just sell that car and hope for the best, cancel your health insurance, spend all your money in the bank too. It'll work out.

    Really?

    Wouldn't that take too much "central planning"?

    let go and let god.

    Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God doth so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    Biden isn't an anti-globalist, he wants to be in the Paris climate accords, which I could give a fuck about the climate, it's the pollution I do care about, not just air.

    Biden is looking to get back into the TPP, which could reduce our trade deficit with China, hopefully.
    it seems implementing tariffs makes globalists think a country is anti globalist.

    i'm glad you recognize that tariffs are a valuable tool.

    Instead of wasting your time talking shit, AssHat,
    get yourself a passport and enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes, and experiences of the world.

    Maybe you'll discover that your hardscrabble life in Bald Knob isn't really heaven after all.
    To the contrary, it's obviously hell as it's clearly driven you insane.

    Running? I'm screwing around on my laptop while I drink coffee and eat Danish...in my bathrobe. Sinatra is on the stereo system.
    The only time I try to run, with minimal success as a septuagenarian, is when my dog gets loose.
    She mocks me, letting me get close and then bolting again, until she gets bored and comes back to accept a tasty bribe.

    I'm not running, AssHat. But I'm not hiding either. Are you?

    that dog will probably eat your face after you've fallen and can't get up.

    Possibly, but so far, she just licks it.

    That's the point, replacing some of the products we now get from China, we get elsewhere.

    You are, that's evident.

    So an individual must plan but the government isn't?

    What happens when a hurricane approaches?

    Just leave all those Navy ships in port.

    Stage the National Guard in surrounding states?

    Governors calling other governors for resources, power companies, food distribution, generators and debris removal equipment?

    Ridiculous.

    What a moron.
