Trump enacted tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

Supposedly, this is because foreign countries are subsidizing these exports; which would be unfair to American producers of aluminum and steel.

This means imported steel and aluminum will cost more.

The same or more than US produced aluminum and steel.

Products made with these metals will cost more.

Tariffs help local metal producers but harm producers using these metals and consumers.

Foreign countries have always used unfair trade practices.

The World Trade Organization(WTO) was created to help these countries in the endless trade war against The United States.

The US needs to work to ensure fair trade.

Plainly, the tariffs Trump enacted are not the answer; but it is good propaganda.

The US should

—  pull out of the WTO

—  re-negotiate ALL trade agreements to ensure fair trade

—  enact intelligent trade laws to punish nations using unfair trade practices

Nations using unfair trade practices are stealing from Americans.

 

 

 

Russia’s gas giant Gazprom said on Saturday it had started moves to terminate gas supply contracts with Ukraine’s Naftogaz.

The Russian group did this in retaliation after a Stockholm arbitration court ordered it this week to pay more than $2.5 billion to Ukrainian energy firm Naftogaz.

This is part of Russia’s on-going aggression against the Ukraine.

Russia’s goal is to re-annex the Ukraine.

The EU is supporting Russia in this evil.

Just more proof the EU is evil.

This stems from France and Germany using the EU as a tool for it own goals.

 

 

 

Mean in Syria, death and destruction.

Syria, backed by Iran and Russia and their terrorist allies, uses chemical weapons on its own people.

Turkey, a NATO member and possible future EU member, continues its genocidal attacks on the Kurds.

The worthless, corrupt United Nations does nothing.

The UN is an ally of rogue states and other corrupt nations.

The United States has deserted the Kurds, its major ally against the islamic state.

Countries supporting the Kurds(providing arms and recognition of a Kurd nation) would be a major step to bringing stability to the Middle East.

Everyone Wants to Belong

leave a comment »

People have a compulsion to belong to groups.

Family, friends, teams, cultures, countries, political parties and numerous informal groups.

A few people overcome this compulsion.

Most do not.

But there is a big problem.

People never use judgment in belonging to these groups.

Most groups do not benefit the individual members.

A few individuals get all the benefits of the group; even in families.

What should individuals do?

—  Use judgement in belonging to any group

—  If a group only benefits a few individuals, either they(the users) change their behavior or be ejected from the group or you leave the group

Allowing yourself to be used just for a sense of belonging is stupid.

Examine every group you belong to; especially membership organizations.

Few actually benefit you; many cost you money.

Non-mainstream is the way to go:

—  in thought

—  in actions

—  in life

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?

Think Tanks

with one comment

Think Tanks are defined as a body of experts providing advice and ideas on specific political or economic problems.

WRONG!

In so many ways:  none of them

—  have any experts

—  produce any new ideas

—  solve/resolve any problems/issues

—  are independent

What they are

—  bodies of political hacks

—  producers of propaganda

—  pushers of ideologies, both stupid and evil

—  political party supporters

—  not just worthless, but dangerous to America

Each one either supports the democratic party or the republican party.

Supports and/or followers of think tanks are stupid and/or evil.

Apple, Amazon Help China Curb the Use of Anti-Censorship Tools

leave a comment »

Treason!

Violation of human rights.

Denial of free speech.

Enemies of freedom.

Allies of rogue states.

Profits over people.

The United States government should sanction both companies severely:

—  incarcerate officers and directors, eventually execute for treason

—  seize all assets relating to doing business in China

—  freeze incorporation in The United States; cannot re-incorporate in another country

Everyone can do without Apple products; everyone should quit using any and all Apple products.

Amazon is a harder situation.  Amazon most always has the lowest prices.  But, everyone can cut back, especially unnecessary services and products such as Prime.

This is what Americans will do.

Website Security Measures

leave a comment »

More and more websites are using security measure.

Robo-checks, capchas, etc.

Such a pain for users.

And a waste of time and money; not to mention visitors who leave.

People should avoid ALL website that use any type of “security measure”.

If the website owner does not make it easy for you, go somewhere else.

Facts versus Beliefs

leave a comment »

Found on the internet:

 

I remember on numerous occasions I would try to convince my Less-Than-Sainted Dad about a particular subject. He would simply answer, “Don’t confuse me with the facts. My mind is already made up.” It seems that researchers at Emory University did a study and found that Democrats and Republicans are also adept at ignoring facts. I know that will shock some of you. But the interesting part to me is that we actually enjoy ignoring facts. Our pleasure centers in our brain get positive feedback when we ignore certain facts that might contradict cherished beliefs.

We believe what we want to believe. If we are confronted with a fact that would not be helpful, we ignore it, explain it away and find some novel new interpretation. Or we look for more facts which favor our position.

Think people in business don’t interpret the data which leads to the best conclusions for themselves (and their stock options)? We want to believe things are going to get better. Facing hard facts is so against our psychological systems that it is the rare leader who can do it.

Rather than letting the data “talk to us,” we tell the data what to say.

END

Man was given a brain.  He continues to refuse to use it.  Man has progressed in spite of himself.  This cannot last.  Life is becoming harder and harder.  Those that start and learn to use their brains will have a much better life.  The have and the have nots will be split by the use on the brain.
