    Remember- you must constantly reinforce the hyper-right...NEVER question anything the right says....POSITIVE Feedback loop!!!!!! (All dick-tatorial systems use that!!!)

    What is this “hyper-right” you speak of?”

    is it pretty much anything or anybody anybody that does not hate Trump?

    my question is, from your vantage point, isn’t everything hyper right?

    Quote the Washington Post.....
    "Several centrist Democrats seized on the absence of a major revelation to argue it was time to end House investigations into whether Trump tried to obstruct the former special counsel’s probe and pivot to legislation."

    WOW...long road for nothing but wasted Taxpayer money

    Why is it that ALL of the other news outlets are still talking about the Russian interference and yet the (Self-ADMITTEDLY) Hard-right slanted Fox News and America One are both down-playing it and still running on about how great a guy Putin is? Do you really think that ALL news outlets all over the world have been subverted by "Killary" and her minions? And that Fox and AO are totally trust-worthy? (Have you ever heard of "Occam's razor"...?)

    Why was Bill O'Reilly fired only after he stated on air that "Putin is a killer"..? Do you think that Putin is a really great (Christian) Guy who we can trust? Your hero Trumpy loves him....and little kimmy....Dick-tators...just what Trumpy wants to be!
    I'm not going step by step with you jet but O'Reilly was fired because he had his hands in the company cookie jar, more then once. So just stop.
    As for news, How about some real news? Like what about the British ship that the Iranians tried to seize or the hurricane about to hit N.O.? No, we would rather talk about made up shit that has been debunked years ago. Yes the Russians tried to interfere in the election like they have around the world for....ever..... Just like we have, remember back when you were a real Dem that thought the CIA was over throwing governments around the world? Now you think the CIA would never try to fix an election in the US...it would never happen because you trust the CIA and the FBI so much....I mean WTF dude?
    Think of this. Trump did not collude with Russia but maybe Putin preferred Trump over Clinton. Why? Maybe he though Hillary was a Hawk and would confront him? But even though Obama never did and even invited them into Syria you would prefer the Hawk Hillary as potus instead of what Trump is doing (basically the Obama plan). Do you think after the drone shoot down Hillary would have pulled back the strike? Hell no and we would probably be in another war in the middle east.
    Even when Trump does what a traditional Dem (because he is more one then a Rep) has lived their lives about like getting us out of wars and not trusting the intelligence community you all hate him for it and want more war and blindly follow intelligence agencies that you used to hate. I don't even understand you all anymore.

    It is completely obvious to anyone not soaped up by Putin and his pals that Russia interfered with the 2016 election- and you think that is A-OK? You do know that Ike would call you a traitor? Hell, "W" would call you a traitor......Do you think that your party is more important than this country?

    George Washington stated when retiring from office, "Political parties will be the death of this country"........He apparently was being prophetic.....

    Here is one of his statements on the subject;

    Political party loyalty "serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection."

    Sounds good to me. Just following the Dem's lead.

    But you are again comparing apples to oranges and blurring the real lines because of it.
    The bottom line is the consumer is paying the same price or they will move to another maker of the product. People from this country do not have a patriotic connection to things made in China as they would for things made in the US so they are not going to pay extra to cover their tariffs. So the whole "consumer is paying for it" like the tariffs are an added tax at the check out register is total BS. And the thought of China lowering prices or even driving them down if there was no tariff is laughable. The only reason they would lower prices is to drive out their competitors and take over the market...like they did with steel and aluminum.
    As for the Farmers which a majority of are part of giant companies, what make them any better then any other job in this country? How would you feel if your job got outsourced just so some giant farm co-op could sell soybeans to China? And why would the farmer care being you don't have a job and you cant buy anything from the farmers anyway?
    Little sick with this "what aboutisms". There is already enough people here hurt because of crappy trade deals to fill a small country. If you are bleeding out you are not so worried about the guy that may get a hangnail down the road. Farmers need to suck it up. I understand they are on the front line but some of us were killed a long time ago in this war. Maybe they can do what the Dems say to do every time they wipe out a industry like coal. They just need to be retrained and grow something else they can sell. If they cant grow something else there then move. Isn't that what you all wanted to do in WV? Retrain a bunch of coal workers to be part of the new tech generation? And just where were they supposed to put this new skill to use? Don't think Google will be moving a campus to foothills of the Appalachian mountains. The Dem line in it's most basic terms is, retrain and then move to where that job may be and if you can get it. I've herd it so much I'm thinking that's what needs to happen in Cali and their housing issues. Cant find a affordable house, fucking move somewhere else. When there is nothing but super rich people there they can hire millionaire plumbers and pay them so to unstop their drains. Or is that why Cali is letting illegals in by the boat load? So they will have super rich and underclass.

They cant raise prices or they will lose market share so tariff money comes out of the original price or their profits. So yes the consumer is paying for it but instead of before when all the profit went to China now only part of it does and the rest goes to the Fed Gov.

    Serious reply; In some cases you may be correct, but overall we still pay more. If you turn it around and consider soybeans which China put their tariff on, who wins? The Chinese go to another source, and perhaps pay more, and the American farmers lose their customer and their income. Who wins? Perhaps another country who now supplies the soybeans wins, but overall the original buyer and seller lose. One pays more, probably more for the same product, and the farmer is out of business.
    In this case, the farmer is not out of business yet because the Federal Government has created a welfare for the farmers, which is not what the farmers want. In the mean time, You and I are subsidizing or paying the farmer for a product he no longer produces through our taxes. At the same time, the farmers are not paying taxes for a product they no longer sell or produce.

    In the case of T-Shirts, the buyer still buys at the best price he can from wherever he can, but if it's from China, the buyer still pays the tariff. Think of State sales tax. Who pays the tax? It's not the seller. Do you get a better product from the state tax? No. Do you benefit from paying the tax? No. How many sellers reduce their price because of the sales tax? Few, if any.

    What I don't understand is why people boast about free enterprise, but now cry foul on the Chinese. If they want to give us the products, let them. If the farmers want to give the Chinese the soybeans, let them. I don't think either is going to happen. Taxing defeats free enterprise and good business.
