Are We Approaching A War

I hope not and China does NOT want war with America.  Also, we do not want war with China.

One day Democrats may understand they need to quit getting into office and immediately depleting our military for reasons just like this.

Of course, they’re so stupid they’ll probably never learn that.

Idiots need to understand our economy was at its peak a few months ago and that was NOT Obummer’s economy (so quit claiming it was).

Four more years of Trump could actually alleviate much of our national debt if he works it right. 
People with TDS refuse to accept Trump does understand world business and he could actually get us out this massive hole or get us headed in the right direction in a massive way by the time his second term is coming to an end.

Obama really got us to a point of almost no return, and I am still thinking that was his intent the whole time.

Do tell...

She’s actually a statue of the goddess Ishtar. Goddess of prostitution. John received his vision and was probably pretty shocked we had an Idol dedicated to the goddess of prostitution in our harbor.

Virus came from China . One way to hurt your enemy is to hurt thei economy. To think some folks actually want Biden as Commander in Chief.

You sure it wasn’t Libertas, the Roman Liberty Goddess?

They are one in the same. Libertas is her Latin name. Egyptian name is Isis.

French gave it to us and the intention was Libertas the Liberty goddess, an emblem of liberty.  There’s all kinds of conspiracies trying to say other things about it.  Where do you come up with the connection between the Roman and Egyptian names?

We will always be in economic war with china, our prices here are outrageous

Yes our prices are outrageous here, I will agree with that one. And on the other hand, when you have an economic system like China has, where they control all means of production and supply and demand, well, they can keep their workforce prices down, allowing them to make the same product much more cheaper than the United States. 

So you have some choices:

1.  we can lower the prices of goods made in the United States, but that would mean that wages would have to decrease in some areas, but rise in others. When you have unions that try and milk companies for every cent they can, the prices of goods are going to go up, because they have to figure those higher wages into the product. Don't get me wrong, in the beginning--Unions were needed to get a fair wage--but in today's business climate where there are more than enough laws to protect workers, I believe that paying a union is way over rated. I know that my cousin, who use to work for Ford in Detroit was making about $42 bucks an hour--and all he did was cut sheet metal, in the beginning he did more of the cutting, but in the end, it was the computer cutting it, and now he doesn't work, retired, but it is automated now. 

2. we can impose tariffs upon the exporters to the United States, to protect some of our businesses. We all know that other countries do this, and we should to, just because we are the strongest economy in the world, doesn't mean that they should get to send their goods here for free. They sure the heck protect their businesses by doing the same. My hope would be that if the price of a Chinese widget was the same price as an American widget--that the American widget would be better build and more purchased in this country. That is the way I purchase most things. But when there is a significant price difference--I usually go for the cheaper.  Just because I am a cheap Bass ####. LOL

I see this as a great chart. Does that include the newest stimulus package--the one already passed? 

This is certainly a part of the Trump era that I am not a fan of. Which leads me to believe, how do you get to be a billionaire if you can't balance a budget? 

President Trump has allowed the US debt and budget to get larger, not smaller. And I don't care who you are, you CANNOT SPEND your way out of debt. Just doesn't happen. I don't care who you are. The government needs to start cutting program, reduce the deficit, and the debt. It doesn't have to be huge cuts, but even a 5% per year, that would help somewhat. Cut out foreign aid all together, get out of the student loan business, cut all departments and get rid of a few, reduce the amount of non military workers in the federal government, simplify the tax code where you can basically eliminate the IRS and everyone pays into the system, and most of all, cut salaries of the elected officials and their retirement--they should only get social security which they expect millions of other Americans to live on.

One of my biggest areas of concern.  I think he's said before something to the effect of "i like playing with debt,  and moving it around."  How about eliminating it instead of playing with it?  Lol

Man's got his hands full with problems coming from all directions,  and has very few people in DC that he can trust to help him carry out his agenda.  Every time he tries to fulfill a campaign promise,  it's met with swift resistance and lawfare.  Until the rest of R party in DC get behind him it's going to be tough sledding.  Worst part is that many, if not most, Rs in DC got there by making the same campaign promises he did,  only difference is,  he's actually trying to keep his promises, most of them anyway.  DC swamp didn't get so deep and murky only because of the Ds. At least they're upfront about their insane ideas.  Rs prefer to just lie about it.  I fault them more.

First problem to solve is making the dollar stronger.  We need less debt, quit printing money, passing out checks, etc...  if done the value of a dollar would strengthen.  Trump’s trade deals were taking care of these things, and were creating the strongest economy in our country’s history.  This pandemic stalled it, which imo, was caused by the Chinese on purpose and the WHO was paid to keep it quiet for a while for a reason.  Now it’s on a rebound, and democrat governors won’t open their states in hopes it keeps the economy from rebounding.   And some here will refuse to see the truth in that.  
we don’t need higher min wage, we need the value of a dollar stronger.  An all time favorite meal at whataburger shouldn’t cost $11.  Raise min wage to $15/hr like some states (which is double) and the $11 meal becomes $22.  Simple economics but some here will refuse to acknowledge it.

We’ve been in a losing economic war with China for the last 20 years. We are the reason they have become powerful. Need to start fighting that battle first and then there will be no need for a real war. 

They are winning because they, the country, own everything.  $1/ hr wages lead to 1000% profits. If China made cars and sold them here, several companies would go belly up

I believe we will have a cold war with China in the future if not now.

Lol, one writer has this idea and you believe it.  There are many more writers that have documented that the statue meant liberty as in the freedom of all people.  That story is bunk imo
