There you are, Mr. A Coward.

There you are, Mr. A Coward. You're a fashionable, deep-state elitist. I must console myself with my status as a Wall Street war profiteer with a servant problem.

For me, it's obvious we need to rewrite our immigration and labor laws when I see ICE raiding a factory and arresting people who are actually employed. Perverse.

Yes, laws must be enforced.
Change the law.
That's you, Congress. Pingree. King. Collins. Poliquin.

so what's up about Trump putting tariffs on Chinese and other nation's goods, those that produce the foreign products that all Americans buy are all working stiffs, why penalize them?

Its supposedly about creating American jobs. So when you have foreigners, illegals working in America taking jobs away from "pre-existing residents", is that much different than a Chinese peasant working in China and sending his labor over here?

Why yes of course, because the American corporate/farmer/homeowner gets a benefit from hiring cheap illegal workers and that is why both of the one party oligarch that runs this country is all in favor of it. They get to pocket the cash savings, or and of course you do too. That's exactly why the DC crowd sold manufacturing jobs overseas, some great kickbacks to those at the top and cheaper goods here, until those here can't buy shit because they don't earn shit.

See you are just like George, I'd rather have immigrants here than those lazy sobs who are citizens here.

Emike did make the point about the welfare system and that is where the good part of the problem lies, but when they sold manufacturing jobs a way, that big sucking sound occurred. and to think I voted for herbert Bush instead of Perot.

not so much about creating "American" jobs other than at the top. Go ICE

I don't think Trump is

I don't think Trump is actually planning to keep those tariffs. They're a negotiating ploy.

It's not possible to get concessions when the store has already been given away by prior administrations. So a new tough position has to be created as a starting point. That's why each new negotiation is preceded by tough talk.

Same thing is going on at the NATO summit.

Very good point. This is an arena Trump is familiar with.

It will be interesting to watch this play out.
