    • Oh yes, I agree. When we bought our new car on the last day of May of this year, the car had already been ordered by the dealership and had everything we wanted, except for no mud flaps and no cargo cover. Two things that every car should have. But it was fully loaded with all the packages and the exact colors Ron chose. So we took it. Here is the kicker. Be cause the car was already ordered and was due in by the last day in May it did not carry the new charges Ford was adding on for the new steel and aluminum tariffs. That same car was 25 percent more after the tariffs. So yes the consumer pays. This Christmas we were going to upgrade the washer / dryer to some new fancy LG front loaders we liked. But the price jumped so much on them Ron and I decided to just stick with the old ones for a while longer. So yes the ones being hurt are the people. Again. Hugs

    • The number of trumps bankruptcies is six?: Trump told Washington Post reporters that he counted the first three bankruptcies as just one. 😉 Oh Yeah.

  3. He also thought the “trade deficit” was an actual debt that we owe someone, instead of what it is: the simple disparity between how much money/goods goes one way versus the other way. There is no single thing about Dispshit Donny that indicates “smart” or “educated” or “competent”.

  4. Trump is soo selfcentered that he lacks even the slightest insight ,
    for instance in climate protection
    All those in his Government that do not belong to the Republican party of the Rich” tell him, that the costs of the existing climate-change for also the USA will be manyfold the cost of ignoring the climatechange – besides of the first problem of hunger-migration.
    Trump is soo shorteyed, that he is unable to see beyond tomorrow.
    And the “Republican party of the Rich” are soo selfcentered for their own profit, that they ignore problems that they do not have personally for themselves.

    • Hello Miles. tRump doesn’t care because he wont be around to suffer from it. The wealthy think they can buy their way out when it gets bad. They will move or buy what they need. They really have the idea that climate change and a ruined environment is a poor peoples problem. Hugs

        • I think that might be a way to get more done. Not so much from the wealthy, but from the regular rank and file. To attack their ideas yes, but truth is the wealthy don’t give a rancid banana what we think, so we have to go to convince their supporters. I think that may work better . But I could be wrong. I am open to ideas good friend. Hugs
