    I didn't say "only the left." Can't you read? lol

    If your comment wasn't so dumb, it would be dumber.

    Now you are playing semantics. Go read your own post. I read just fine.

    There are many things wrong with what you have said. Allow me to focus on that last bit.

    If American policy makes Americans pay more for things (to 'restore America to prosperity' or whatever) but also everyone else pays less, then everyone else is always paying less for the same things. Trouble is, the feedback loop you are relying on does not exist. If we keep adding tariffs, we get more retaliation. Even if we don't hurt quite as much as an opponent, we still hurt very badly. And if we take the entire world on, we will hurt horribly indeed.

    I suppose I should just give up. If people are supporting Trump's trade war idea, we're just about cooked anyway

    Liberals are the ones who stopped shopping at Wal-Mart.
    Almost every liberal friend I know that stopped shopping there did so for several reasons.

    *They hated the fact that WM was a kiss of death for local Mom and Pop shops but at least WM carried Made in USA stuff. Then old man Sam Walton died, and the kids reversed that policy IMMEDIATELY, so not only was WM the kiss of death for local businesses, it was the kiss of death for domestic manufacturing and jobs, too.

    *They hated the fact that WM barely paid more than minimum wage for most jobs but at least there was some modicum of job security if you did your job and showed up on time. Then, in the last 15 years or so, WM started cutting almost everyone's hours so that almost all jobs were now part time, and they eliminated almost all overtime, too...even for management.

    *It was bad enough that WM was such a draconian nightmare but now WM was throwing in food stamp and medicaid applications with your hire package, proving that taxpayers were subsidizing the overhead for the corporation.

    ---Yeah right, kooky lefties crowding the aisles at Wal-Mart, that's a knee slapper.
    Poor working people shop at Wal-Mart because it's all they can afford, but I guarantee you political leanings, if they lean liberal, make shopping at Wal-Mart highly undesirable once you understand what it is you're empowering by shopping there.

    We can hurt China. China can hurt us. It will be very bad both ways if we get into a trade war.


    Make sure you know what you're asking for and what it will cost. Make sure you understand it very well before trumpeting some half-cocked...no...uncocked policy that Trump crapped out after getting made at something he heard from his advisers on Fox and Friends.
    I wish it was allowable to respond to a "So...." strawman post with a F.O.A. - - you know what.

    It's the same political philosophy they use all the time. If it makes liberals cry trumpettes will shoot their own faces off and call it a victory.

    Careful, you're going to start sounding like Slick Willie arguing over what "is" really means, and I know you ain't got no love for Bubba Clinton.
    We ALL read your post, so just own it fer chrissakes, you were trying to imply that Wally World was a liberal paradise.

    Your focus was solely on the left. You trying to deny that is just you lying again like usual.

    Americans will walk over their dying grandmother to save a dime. They will squeeze a quarter until the eagle ****s. And having said that, nearly everyone in flyover country, and rural California shops at Walmart some of the time. Why? To save a dollar that’s why. They are the middle class left and the middle class right. They are the ones people only care about at election time.

    BTW, It is not R2D2 buying all that Chinese ****. It is us.
