    You cut out 50% of the market for anything and prices plummet.

    Tariffs have been lifted for the moment after the summit.

    Mention gas shortage and an hour later it goes up 50 cents even tho nothing changed.
    I'm just saying that the media reports make it seem like it instantly stops all trade.
    China need stuff and we need stuff. Stock markets didn't take a nose dive.
    If a farmer lost 50% in his sales and the government paid him a bit for his losses it sill isn't a good thing. Tariff war is suspended anyway after the summit. They will eventually come to a deal, and hopefully sooner than later.

    Too late this year to help many. Latest estimates were that it was costing farmers $millions every day. China found other eager trade partners.

    Especially here: a lot of the farmers haven't gotten in their crops yet due to the rain everyday and what was in is drowned out. Groceries will get expensive you wait and see.

    China quit buying pork, so at first there will be a surplus and low price. Then the producers will cut production and the price will go way up.

    Problem is the media constantly painting him as a racist bigot. Repeat it enough times and it become true. :rolleyes: He's fine with legal immigration.

    People who are not racists don't cry about renting to black people.

    And no he's not for legal immigration either as far as people coming here wanting asylum from evil dictators who we support in South America. Thats why they are coming here, for protection from dictators and drug cartels who run countries in South America. Get it yet?

    .....maybe we can fly "imigrants" in from all countries because they have evil dictators, women don't have rights and food is scarce. Yeh, that's the ticket. USA, the refuge and salvation for the worlds billions of poor. Keep em coming, we have all kinds of room.

    Hmmm, well either your your ancestors snuck in illegally or walked by a statue that had these words displayed.

    Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

    This is a different time. We don't start fires by rubbing sticks together anymore.
    We either have borders and immigration requirements or we don't. I doubt my ancestors came here illegally. Illegally, .............that's all we're talking about. Legal immigration is ok, and it's probably needed.
    Ask Jon about immigrating to NZ. I wouldn't even qualify. :D

    Wait until social security runs out, but illegals get free homes and free healthcare. Maybe Ern might have a different tone?

    We need workers to pay into SS due to all the retired baby boomers sucking up all that socialism.
