What difference does it make. The corporations are flush with tons of cash. The CEOs just got a huge tax break on personal taxes. Corporate taxes are lower. Wealth inequality is at all time highs. We already have corporately owned prisons contracting out prison labor. The only thing left is debtor prisons with trains bringing in new prisoners.

What I'm guessing about the international fuel tax, is that if an American trucker is in Canada, and has to purchase fuel here, he or she would get a rebate on the taxes paid, or if the fuel is bought in a different state from where the trucker resides, that has excessive tax compared to their residential state, a rebate....probably other stuff in there as well, and I could be completely wrong too.....
Canada has lots of tax added to our gas prices 💸💸💸
As far as NAFTA goes, that's not going good, no agreement on anything.
And the TPP isn't dead yet, there's still countries negotiating, just not the US.

Watching how things start and either 'evolve' or have an agenda not exposed- the U.N. was never intended as a world government, for example- just made me suspicious.
I can't buy this altruistic 'non-profit'. Dealing with that many gov'ts must have cost a fortune, Someone coughed up the shekels. Somebody is making out well with this, be it a bank, perhaps?
My 'BS meter' is pinging in the red. Could be wrong , though.
The main defense in not-for-profit vs. non-profit is the manner in which the organizations exists. Although the two terms are often used interchangeably, the distinction in not-for-profit vs. non-profit could be in its membership.
Non-profits may have employees that get paid a salary, but that salary is not contingent on the fundraising efforts of that company. There may also be volunteers at the non-profit, but they fail to benefit from the income of the company.
However, not-for-profit organizations may include a membership roster which does directly benefit from the income of the organization. For example, an organization that has fund drives to send children to a destination would likely be a not-for-profit if the children were the ones that took part in the fundraising efforts, such as selling candy to raise funds.
