American's don't pay tariff's directly nor fully in most cases, it's at wholesale importer level.

Seller (China) can reduce price (it did) Importer can absorb or products have higher retail price making uncompetitive resulting in reduced sales.

Plus consumer always has choice to participate or not.

This is why one sees no attributed inflation from current tariff's - what I directly see is more jobs where I'm located directly from past tariff's.

What I've seen is steady increase in jobs from 2010 through 2017 with the curve flattening after that.

What I've seen is the cost of a building we were getting ready to build increasing by .75 million dollars due to the steel tariff and the primary developer bailing out on the project.

Yeah wouldn't you just love to see your Clyde buzzing again with shipbuilding? We can have than again mate. If we want it we can have it and that may even lead to a united kingdom if the people are given a dream of a future. We really do need to get everywhere outside London buzzing again with positivity, if it means letting Trump run our country then yes let him give it a shot. We need someone like Trump who is going to stand up for the workers and not get Chinaeeeeeeezzified leading to all the working going east to the Commies and our young people having no hope and getting hooked on heroin and badness. Good on Trump
He speaks the truth

Official Trump MAGA hats are made in the US




CLAIM: Trump’s “Make America Great Again” caps are made in China, not the U.S.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The hats are made by a manufacturer in California.



The AP continues:



THE FACTS: A post circulating on Facebook with a picture of a red MAGA hat that bears a “Made in China” label falsely claims President Donald Trump’s official caps are not made in the U.S. Such claims have circulated for years on social media and have re-surfaced in recent months as the president engages in a tariff war with China.

Brian Kennedy, president of Cali Fame of Los Angeles, a California-based company that makes the official hats, confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the hats are produced entirely in Carson, Calif.

Unfortunately, i really don't see any major shipbuilding coming back to Glasgow in the way of centuries past.

And if it did 9/10 of the construction processes will probably be automated by the time it ever happened.

As to drugs, heroin included, i would legalize the lot, thus remove the criminality that surrounds there sale and use, introduce quality control, tax appropriately and fund the rehabilitation projects for the people who required them in the proper manner.

Trumps a monkey with a big bag of spanners, i just hope he drops them on his toes.

The crazy thing is Glasgow still has the skills, yes still alive, to start making kick ass ships again, heck you guys were the best in the world at it and more
The only thing that stops the people coming off the trolley pushing jobs and getting this country going again is exchange rates (London0 and that is something if we all wanted could be put right

Believe it or not, those skills are a lost art these days, especially where welding and riveting are concerned.

Thing is through we don't even construct ocean-going vessels, in the same manner, these days as we did in the 1900s

You will never sell me on Brexit ufoorbhunter we simply did not vote for it up here.

As to Trump, the UK needs him right now about as much as it needs Fentanyl-Laced Crack Cocaine or a bullet to the fore dome.

Anyhoo he will have his own recession to contend with soon enough if he keeps up this piss and wind.

Not many of those boys about these days that constructed the like of say the Titanic.

And it's not like they wrote how to do it down in books.

There's a difference between the 33rd Degree Scottish Masonic Rite Masons and the average Scotsman ufoorbhunter.

Nothing against Massons all the same, some of them do good work.
