    come on man, couldn't you tell the line you highlighted was sarcasm....I know I am partisan, but so are you, so are most if not all the people posting on this site. It's just that some refuse to admit that to themselves, so we get the posers hiding behind the 'Moderate', 'Independent', 'Other' labels all the time.

    Ah well....Like I said, I like partisanship, it makes for wonderful conversations

    realistically it is not the average poor people that would be hurt by a trade war with China. They spend the majority of their mone on food, shelter, clothing (which They do not buy much of the consumer goods that china produces. Those in the middle income groups would be harmed more directly.

    The other aspect to consider would be potentially higher wages for middle and lower income groups due to higher demand for US labour. Probably leading to a more balanced income distributiion within the US

    Our greed and the greed of big industry has allowed China to become a super power over us and we allow China to get rich and also allow China to take over our job market. I expect better from my government and have the right to the pursuit of happiness and allowing China to overtake our Dollar and Job Market is a violation of my civil rights. It is also a violation of every other legal citizen in the U.S.A. Maybe we should start a lawsuit.

    Also why are poor people spending money anways? The only thing they need to be spending money to buy new stuff is on things that are really needed like food and the basics. All the other stuff? They should be buying clothes at places like Good Will and thrift stores. Not spending money at Wal-Mart anyways. That is a big problem with folks in this country: we spend money we should not be spending. And guess what? The smart rich folks are tightwads holding onto their money.

    Not trying to say a person working should not be able to spend money on whatever they wish but we are too big of a consumerism society and this is why so many folks end up either filing for Bank Rup. or losing every damn thing they have.

    Yes, the government gets in the way of you building a nuclear power generator in your basement and irradiating half the city because you made the shielding out of cotton candy. Delicious, radioactive cotton candy.

    The problem is that it's not just the government that did this, but the people did it as well. To compensate for the inherent weakness of the fiat Federal Reserve Note, inflation, the people demanded higher wages through the use of minimum wage laws. This caused us to price ourselves out of the job market in many industries like manufacturing. Companies are not charities and need to make money in order to survive. Our current economy isn't capitalistic, but corporate.
