The United States, Canada and Mexico are renegotiating NAFTA(North American Free Trade Agreement).

The idea was that NAFTA would enhance trade between the three countries and eliminate or reduce trade tariffs.  This would hopefully improve all countries’ economies.

It did not do this.

NAFTA gave Canada and Mexico all the benefits:

—  both nations imports to The United States increased much more than US export to them

—  allowed both nations to send substandard goods to the US; especially contaminated food items from Mexico

—  protected their industries while opening the US to their imports

—  increased employment for Canada and Mexico at the cost of US jobs

—  set up a dispute resolution process in which the US always lost

—  banned the US from protecting its citizens from shoddy goods

The list goes on.

NAFTA is totally unfair to The United States and its citizens.

Canada and Mexico took advantage of The United States.

And they want to continue to do so.

Renegotiation is not good enough for The United States and its citizens.

The United States should pull out of NAFTA.

Start over from scratch:

—  US laws and regulations override NAFTA

—  strict country of origin labeling

—  imports must comply with US laws and regulations; the same as for US sourced goods

—  Mexico must pay for the border wall

—  US goods must not be blocked by Canada and Mexico

–block sub-standard goods from Canada and Mexico

Without a replacement for NAFTA:

—  all goods passing between Canada and Mexico should be subject to tariffs; rail and truck shipments; additional tariff on goods from Mexico to pay for border wall

—  new US laws and regulations the same as itemized above for the replacement nafta

—  tariffs or bans on imports if Canada and Mexico engage in unfair trade practices

Trade must be fair to all nations.

The United States should never allow other nations to take advantage of its and/or its citizens.

Trump repeatedly said it was the worse trade agreement; it did not go far enough.

Trump talked about pulling out of NAFTA; now he should do it and forget renegotiating.

Trump cuts u-bam-a care advertising spending from $100 million to $10 million.

Government should never spend money on advertising.

Good job Trump, now cut the remaining $10 million and eliminate the related jobs; a benefit for Americans.

 

State Department told Russia to close its consulate in San Francisco and buildings in Washington and New York that house trade missions.

The United States does not need diplomatic relations with rogue states; rogue states are evil.  Yes, Russia is a rogue state.  Also a waste of money.

First step in the right direction, now close all US State Department operations in Russia.

 

President Donald Trump is expected to rescind an Obama administration policy that protects from deportation nearly 800,000 immigrants who as children entered the country illegally.

This policy is know as Deferred-Action-Childhood-Arrivals(DACA) or Dreamer program.

Some businesses are against Trump doing this.  They want sweat shop labor.

Some members of Congress are against it as well.  Cannot buy votes from deported illegal voters.

Illegal immigrants are criminals.  These individuals are also getting government benefits, stealing from American citizens.

Plenty of United States citizens without jobs.

Trump, why the delay?

INTRODUCING DAILY NEWS

leave a comment »

The news media informs of what is happening in the world.

Other than that it is propaganda and entertainment.

So to better inform the public, DAILY NEWS is being started.

It will only be published when something is important.

Not in DAILY NEWS, then not really important.

Celebrities and Social Media

leave a comment »

Most celebrities have thousands upon thousands of followers on social media; some even have multi-millions of followers.

Why?

For the celebrities, it is strictly business; a way to make money and/or gain power.

Also, to inflate their ego and boost their false pride.

For the followers, big question.

What is the benefit of being a follower of any celebrity on social media?

Just one?

Yet billions of people waste their time, maybe their money, following celebrities on social media.

Why?

Are people so simple minded and/or stupid?

Have they nothing better to do with their lives?

Facts of social media:

—  propaganda

—  advertising

—  entertainment

And nothing else.

Think hard about social media.

Why do you even have any social media accounts?

Are you so stupid/foolish you believe celebrities are

—  smarter than the average person?

—  have loyalty to their social media followers?

—  honest and honorable individuals?

If so, do you want to buy this bridge or swamp land?

Social Media — Its Value

leave a comment »

Everybody looks at social media as if it were sliced bread.

A great invention for the betterment of mankind.

WRONG!

It is a technological innovation.

A communication tool; nothing more.

But it has done little to improve anything.

What has it accomplished?

Let us see:

—  opened another advertising channel; more advertising(lies) to cloud people’s minds

—  another means for the masses to waste their time and their brains

—  a way for the corrupt and/or incompetent to spread propaganda

Social media has not improved anything; quite the opposite.

But like any tool, how it is used determines its value.

As usual, man has turned a good tool to evil.

Charlottesville Ruckus

leave a comment »

Little ruckus in Charlottesville, VA.

Terrorism?

No.

Hate Crime?

No.

Stupidity?

Yes, Yes, Yes.  From everybody.

Big brou-ha-ha over nothing.

Political correctness is evil.

Majority opinion is tyranny.

And for the ignorant and stupid, the Civil War was not primarily about slavery.

China Angered at United States and Its Allies

leave a comment »

What, China upset?

Why?

The United States and its allies ignored China’s call to calm tensions with North Korea.

China  —  two-faced rogue state.

Of course, China wants The United States to back-off.

China is actively fighting a covert war with The United States.

North Korea is its cats-paw.

China supplies North Korea with technology and supplies while egging it on.

Without China, North Korea would collapsed decades ago.

When war breaks out between The United States and North Korea, China has two choices; attack the US or let is puppet fall and the take public blame.

The world is in this mess.

South Korea and Japan will probably be experience death and destruction.

There could be fallout form nuclear explosions.

It is the same old story:  APPEASEMENT!

Sit around being stupid while the enemy prepare for war.

Nazi Germany all over again.
