It's quite simple. A trade deficit means that one is buying more goods than one is selling.
Now, can you explain how it is better to not sell anything?



they don't follow the same rules as us.
So, let's take the ball and go home. From everyone with different rules.

Oh. I see. You think that trade is a zero sum game.
It isn't.

But that's ok, we can just stop buying stuff from China at all. Problem solved.

Please stop acting as if you know what you are talking about. To repeat Phage's question, which trade terms are you talking about? What are your specific objections?

Kashmir would be my coronation song... followed by Comfortably Numb as an aperitif.



I'll rent the Mellotron 400 for that one, and I don't even
play keys anymore. WooOO YeahEEYEAhH.

Back to the original argument. GMOs are so good, the corporation
foisting them on us has to lobby the government for legal immunity
from injuries as a result of our ingesting them.

I'm glad at least some European countries aren't as flouridated and
otherwise presoaked as the US in chemicals by now to just say Hell No.
Oh yeah and the irradiation from the nightly bemused... with the
Operation Mockingbird parrots.

Pass the projectiles, tank person.. you drive. And I AM Dave.

Since you want to play why don't you tell us how our relationship with China has been benefitting us at all?

Since when is everyone supposed to benefit from anything having to do with trade?

Because, like I said previously. You don't have the slightest understanding. For you, it's all about "what's in it for me." For you, it always if someone is doing better than me, it means I'm losing.

For you, it's spouting Trumpeese.



I mean a 350 billion $ deficit is nothing bah who cares.
So, boycott Chinese products. Maybe you'll feel better about it.

Do you really want me to believe that by ending trade with China returning that 350 billion dollars back to US markets wouldn't offset the 250 billion dollar loss were experiencing

You make absolutely no sense were better trading with someone else or no one at all than we are losing that much money it's pretty damn simple what the hell is wrong with you
