So did the canucks ever get ken barbies eyebrow glued back on?


Yeah. Just in time to see the Tangerine Dream. @@

See how easy it is for others to stoop to this level?


so now you canucks consider it stooping down to hear a joke

get off the high horse


the real joke is ken thinking he had a point that needed to be made after everyone agreed to say something different

so we get to ats where the headline has been formed in order to make the us look bad

truth is that everyone agreed on some changes and a public statment then ken decided to keep the trash talk going for some reason

maybe he needs an off switch or too just go have a smoke session to cool his jets

All that means is that Americans need to train to learn how to perform better jobs. Why should we have reduced access to goods just because a bunch of uneducated workers don't want to modernize?

We shouldn't coddle the lazy.


No it means that we entered into completely jacked up trade agreements knowing this would happen.

In the 80's and 90's the media was in an uproar avout "sweat shops". Now we save $5 on a toaster made under the same circumstances without even batting an eye.

I am happy for you that you have a skillset that affords you the arrogance that you have. You are so out of touch with reality this conversation is pointless.

We live in a competitive world. Our system of government has embraced free market competition. Competition exists to create many losers for every winner. As long as we're going to remain in a competitive society, we should expect our citizens to do what it takes to remain competitive. Certain jobs are no longer competitive while the US is well positioned to provide others... though those jobs do tend to require educations.

If we want to maximize the number of winners, we need to create more jobs that have an actual future. Cutting ourselves off from world trade is just going to make us like Cuba, where 50 years from now we're going to be using antique technology because we never brought in anything better. And then we become a third world country.

Not sure how we went from the Rothschilds control everyone and the New World Order to Trump is the enemy of humanity and the rest of the world leaders are good people

Hmmmm very weird


Money can make weird things happen.

Billionaire Koch brothers' political network will spend millions to oppose Trump's tariffs

You don't think all these people saying Trump should have signed on to the agreement actually read the agreement, do you?

Worst reasoning ever. The best way to make a point is to be a man and do it in person. Apparently Trump isn't man enough for that so he has to scheme his way out of things.


so you never done that before? i did it a few times to piss people off.

Context - Cuba was cut off for its alignment with the Soviets. They did have free health care something the competitive US cant seem to get a grip on.

There is a difference between trade agreements and tariffs on goods and knowledge transfer




And then we become a third world country.

What the propaganda always fails to mention is that the Canadian government imposes limits on what their farmers produce in order to keep prices high by capping the supply. Trump is welcome to try the same economic strategy here.

So what your saying is they put on a tariff to artificially keep produce high to protect their farmers? Hmmmm isn't that is whats happening with the steel tariffs? To protect us Steele companies they are artificially manipulating the market towards higher prices.

I think you missed the point. If Trump wants the steel and coal industries to be more profitable, he should order them to cut production in addition to the tariffs. (Incidentally, I do not favor this approach any more than I favor tariffs.)

Being "right" has its advantages. Trust me. Right can see all the "wrong"... Finally an American leader doing right. Awesome times and beautiful days ahead.
Really? Canada is mad at the U.S.? Canada? Lol! The only reason Russia didn't occupy Canada is because Russia knew America wouldn't have allowed it! Canada and the rest of the "allies" wouldn't be a dot on a map without the U.S.A. Russia won WW2. They didn't win the world because of the U.S.A.... That's historical fact. The "allies" need to keep their mouth shut and ears open, when the U.S. talks.

Re: tariffs. Simply put countries/nations that need "stuff". Shouldn't put "taxes" on imports. America doesn't "need" a vast majority of what it gets, from "imports". America "wants" imports. Because America has become consumers not producers. You can chalk that problem up to unAmerican infiltration.
America will produce what's needed and also what is "wanted" in house.
Do "American" liberals want to keep paying ransom for peace? That's all they've been doing for the last 60 years.
Buying lead coated baby bottles, cups, dishes..etc. From China so China wouldn't feel left out of the "peaceful" global community. Then in turn, building a navy that can rival the customer, from the profits? Pres. Trump is doing what should've been done years ago. The "talking faces/heads" can say what they want. But America needs to learn how to be independent again. Nobody with the "metric system" put a man on the moon. It was done in inches. We need lock all these "globalist", "brotherhood" of man types in one theatre, with one bottle of water. Then see how "peace" goes. Till then? Trump's doing an excellent job! We really don't need "them". But they do need us. They know it. Trump knows it.

You have a very archaic way of thinking of the future of the world. Years from now they will look at us like the look at the Stone age. Eventually and it is inevitable the world will be one big giant and hopefully happy family. It's just a selfish way of thinking that the us has to always be #1 til the end of time, but at the expense of who?

You say let them eat cake and then they pull a revolution on us, you see where this is headed? Are you sure the world powers combined wouldn't be able to crumble us if we decide to take our ball and go home? The is doesn't want to play ball unless they make the rules and make all the money off ticket sales. It won't take long til the other players refuse to play in the United States league, and then the league goes out of business
