    I was in Lowes this morning for some electrical supplies. While there I looked at small air compressors. I need one for putting air in my tires and blowing air for parts cleaning. Every compressor there was foreign made. Every one I looked at came from China. Hopefully, this nonsense will stop.

    Charge the Chi Com's a 100% tariff, they deserve it, and I don't know why we do business with them.

    Tariffs: The Taxes That Made America Great

    That the Smoot-Hawley Tariff caused the Depression of the 1930s is a New Deal myth in which America’s schoolchildren have been indoctrinated for decades. The Depression began with the crash of the stock market in 1929, nine months before Smoot-Hawley became law. The real villain: The Federal Reserve…

    I am for tariffs mainly because our previous president was a weak b...h, and a little compensation is in order. I like what Kauboy said, and agree with him for the most part. However, I would take caution with the Chinese because they have been around a lot longer than us as far as nations go, and there is are reasons for that... One being long game is more important than short. The game is not missed by Chinese leaders. It is missed by us often now days.

    You may be mistaking the current Chinese power structure with their days of old.
    Communism took hold in that country only 70 or so years ago. They're infants by historical standards. Their ancestors wouldn't recognize them now.
    The U.S. is the second still-standing country to have maintained a steady and unchanged form of government going on 243 years now. The only other is a 30sq. mi. "micro-state" in Italy, lasting 400+ years.
    We'll outlast the red Chinese.
    They'll be red, white, and blue within the century, just you wait.

    Good point.

    Some things never change despite what form of government presides. The cunning take on many faces. Communism is no exception. That is precisely why communism is not a feasible form of government. It is a godly thought, yet we are not perfect.
