Tariffs would be more acceptable if they were instituted not only vis-a-vis China but all the other cheap goods
importers. They can be part of a comprehensive plan. In this case, they are not, they are being used as weapons
in an executive card game, with no discussion and no warning. So farmers and many others here and in China
are being punished with no time to adjust their planning.

There's not a lot to discuss at this juncture because no deal is on the table, just tit-for-tats.
Let's see a deal then evaluate its merits and shortcomings at the appropriate time. Trump needs to do a
better job of telling the American people what he wants to do and how to do it - or he will lose on this issue.

Just to be clear the Trump administration has bargained in good faith, they had a deal and at the last minute the Chinks pulled out of it. We need to put fault where it is and that is squarely with them.

Also even more importantly they are stealing our tech secrets which could lead to our very existence. I foresee us kicking their students out of our University Labs. Always think of the FUTURE.

So in closing there will be pain as we are weaned off their teat but in the long run we will regain our manufacturing back and hopefully in 2024 when Jim Jordan takes over the Presidency we will be on better footing. popnana

@Treebeard you must be very young.

To be great...self sufficiency must occur again.

Clinton created China's wealth and destroyed America's future...it wasn't something that occurred a long time ago...it happened while many of us were old enough to remember.

The EPA through Clinton did this.

We made China a powerhouse...we made China what it is today...while closing our factories and putting our citizens out of work. We made Chinese billionaires and bankrupted Americans.

If we want America to be great again...the Chinese apron strings will need to be cut.

Will it hurt? yes...will it be worth it? Oh yes it will!

Trump
If society fell apart, we - the people would build a new one. Most people are good at their core, and when we see things that are wrong we work to fix them together. Make friends with your neighbors, get involved with your community - because we will rebuild our lives, our communities, from horrible circumstances we always will.

Jordan denies knowledge of abuse

Jordan has stood firm in his ignorance of the alleged sexual abuse.

“I never knew about any type of abuse,” Jordan said in an interview with Politico shortly after the news broke. “If I did, I would have done something about it.”

On Friday Jordan told Fox News that the allegations are false saying that "no one ever reported any abuse to me."

“Conversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse or reported abuse,” he said

Jordan also accused one of the former wrestlers, Mike DiSabato, of having a "vendetta" against him and Ohio State. He also said the timing of the allegations are "suspect," as he gears up to run for Speaker of the House.
Former OSU wrestling coaches back Jordan

In a joint statement released Monday, six former Ohio State wrestling coaches defended Jordan.

“What has been said about Jim Jordan is absolutely wrong,” they said in the statement. “We all worked on the wrestling coaching staff during Jim’s tenure at The Ohio State University. None of us saw or heard of abuse of OSU wrestlers.”

"The well-being of student-athletes was all of our concern. If we had heard of any abuse, we would have spoken up," former head coach Russ Hellickson and former assistant coaches Dave Ruckman, Rex Holman, Ken Chertow, Myron Kharchilava and Kenny Ramsey Jr. said in their statement.

Former Ohio State athletic director Andy Geiger told the Associated Press he doesn't remember complaints about any team doctor's sexual misconduct. Geiger said he did, however, recall concerns about voyeurism in the showers, according to the Associated Press.

I understood your posts.

But do you understand what you are standing against?

Are you being a contrarian on purpose or are you really not aware of how China was created by the EPA while America was cut at the knees by the same agency?

If you want Americans to be successful and prosperous, we can't have another nation continue to lord their factories, the factories we help fund through past administrations, over us.
