    Obama wants to avoid 'trade war'

    BBC NEWS | Business | Obama wants to avoid 'trade war'

    Yikes.. At this day and age a trade war between Europe and the US would be disastrous and carry long term ill effects and possibly be another nail in the already pretty nailed up economic coffin of decline.

    Who the hell came up with that silly "buy American" clause anyways? What a fool!
    Europe is illegally occupied by the US

    Holy ****, we agree on something!
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
    "Wealth of Nations," Book V, Chapter II, Part II, Article I, pg.911

    **** the EU,who the hell are they to tell us how we can spend our tax payer money? Tax payer money should not be spent on foreign goods and services especially if it is a stimulus plan meant to help American jobs.

    It seems in the end democrats don't mind selling out American jobs just like some of the republicans who are globalist/anti-American.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I would rather have Obama listening to unions here in the US than to people who have no loyalty to this country as well as no business what so ever in deciding what the hell goes on in the US.
