Running The Country "Like A Business"??

Here's the thing...Americans SHOULD pay more at the register.  Americans should NOT be importing tons of cheap plastic crap from China every day and making WalMart rich while we fill our landfills with plastic poison, mountains of useless cheap plastic sh!t nobody even needs.  Just fvcking peel your hard-boiled eggs, for fvcksake!  You don't need a piece of $3.99 garbage that doesn't work to do it for you badly for a week and then end up in the ground.

 

But have tariffs ever worked?  That's a serious question.  Don't they always just turn into a trade war?

 

how exactly should Americans pay more when they are not earning more? that is the reason why most of them shops at Walmart, I personally haven't set foot in Walmart in 2 decades, Won't shop there under any circumstance.

 

Tariffs back then was a necessity for government to collect revenue , tariffs are never a good idea because tariffs distort the economy and one of the result of tariffs a reduction in productivity

 

Tariffs impose costs on the country setting them and what happens after? the foreign company  responds with retaliatory tariffs  of their own, adn in the end it ends up hurting exporters, while the country with the tariffs protects their citizens jobs in the short run , in the long run companies end up leaving and locating in jurisdiction with cheaper labour forces.

Businesses are run to make a profit. Governments are run to provide services for the citizens.

A computerized community could be run as either of these. It could be incorruptible, it depends on the programmers.

Life's programmer made life corrubpible. In fact, we live on corruption.. No manure, no farm. No rot, no taste. The difference between a nice camembert or stilton, and some crap fit only to grill between bread slices, is corruption. 

 

The earth is a spinning ball of 90% feces, and everything on it follows the 90% rule. 90% of coffee houses, restaurants and relationships are pure shiit. 90% of EVERYTHING is shiit.

 

The key is to look for the good stuff, smell the roses, and die owing someone you don't like money.

Anyone who looks at the annual budget and sees the waste, and our $20 Trillion deficit, then hears democrats screaming like banshees if anyone DARES suggest federal spending be cut. Can you imagine anyone saying this country doesn't have a spending problem?

In a new report, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office warns that, unless action is taken, red ink will skyrocket over the next 25 years.

All those spending cuts republicans mke when they control both houses of congress and the white house - that'll save us. 

 

Everyone knows republicans are fiscal hawks - If ya don't believe me, ask the shrub. He only DOUBLED the debt. Reagan trippled it.

I have done the natural math and realities' mathematics doesn't come close. About as accurate as brain to consciousness goes 10% to maybe 15% matching actual results where 85% to 90% is absolute fiction.

Trump Has Sat On BILLION$ OF DOLLAR$

Meant For PR, USVI, LA, TX, & FL!!!

January 12, 2019

 

"After the recent surge in more powerful windstorms, increasing rain amounts and ferocious storm surge during 2017, (think Hurricane Maria, Irma and Harvey and the utter destruction these storms wrought) Congress appropriated 16 Billion Dollars to beef up defenses against the pattern of increasing destruction to our infrastructure by recent hurricanes. Donald Trump and his swamp creature, HUD Secretary Ben Carson, have not spent a dime of those funds; instead making suffering American citizens fend for themselves."

Commerce Secretary Shrugs At

Food Banks For Federal Workers

January 24, 2018

 

"From the top down in the Trump administration, there is increasing evidence they had no idea whatsoever exactly how much pain would be inflicted on millions of Americans with the Ann Coulter-ordered shutdown of the U.S. government.

 

Case in point: Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross comments on CNBC this morning. When asked about federal workers having to rely on food banks to feed themselves and their families, Ross, who has an estimated net worth of $700 million, said he simply couldn’t understand why food banks were necessary."

 

I know they are, and I dont really quite understand why. Because, as I mentioned before, the obligations that they would undertake, say borrowing from a bank or a credit union, are in effect federally guaranteed.”

2 Years After Tax Bills Passage;

Corporate Revenue Has Plummeted!!

March 22, 2019

 

"In December 2017, President Donald Trump signed a massive tax cut for corporations and the wealthy, calling it his big, beautiful Christmas present for the American people. While his Treasury Department predicted the cuts would pay for themselves through growth and Trump himself repeatedly promised to eliminate the deficit entirely, the latest budget numbers show these claims were flat-out wrong.

 

According to a Bloomberg report on Friday, the monthly budget deficit for February was $234 Billionthe largest in American history. A year ago, February’s gap was a mere $215.2 billion. A significant part of this gap came from declining revenue, especially from corporations.

 

Corporate tax revenue so far in 2019 has been just $59.2 Billion. Bloomberg noted that, in 2018 as the tax cuts were partially in effect, corporations paid $73.5 billion over a similar time period. In 2017, before the Trump tax cuts, corporate revenue was $87.4 Billion at this point in the calendar. This $28.2 Million drop-off means that corporate revenue has dropped by almost a third since before the cuts."

Trump Tower = Chicago Retails Biggest Failure!

March 27, 2019

 

"Trump Tower’s failure is an outlier in Chicago’s competitive retail market, where no comparable space has languished on the market for nearly this long. Over the years, the Trumps have cycled through multiple leasing agents without success. Last year, the Trump name was even removed from marketing materials. And then added back again. Last summer, Donald Trump Jr. paid a visit to the property to kickstart leasing activity.

 

These efforts have proven futile.

 

The Trump Organization did not respond to requests for comment for this story, nor did the city of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development. The tower’s current leasing broker, ARC Real Estate, declined to comment."

 

GREAT JOB O' VETTING, REPUBLICANS.....A "CEO"!!!!
