Oh my goodness, eat more bran!
You seem to just want to be picky and play semantics but, that's okay, I am not particularly easily offended.
You don't know if I am a farmer or a construction worker or not, and, given the construct of the conversation it is a perfectly workable way to hash
out the details to use the "royal" we when referencing America and activities that take place there.
As far as isolationsim.
Oh, there are reasonable ways in which the U.S. could isolate and rebuild. If you haven't seen a study lately it could be because globalism has held
sway for a very long time now and in the ivory towers of the world where such studies are funded, undertaken, and published globalist views are even
more popular. Or perhaps you expected Gates' Gavi organization to take up that banner. They were far too busy with roof top dinners in Switzerland
and on the ground analysis in Uganda... all the while fretting over the carbon emissions of their frequent flying. And if you did get a study, what
then? "Lies, lies, and damn statistics". Studies aren't that impressive to me. I have seen my share of the inner workings of how some of these
things get put together. Popular thought gets published. Nothing ground breaking to see. Move along.
China hasn't fought a major war in a while.
They trade but other than that they expect the rest of the world to stay out of their face.
Have you checked the growth rate on their GDP lately? I could do more than toast marshmellows on that fire.
So, as to the Federal Reserve. Agreed. If such diverse points of view as those held by you and I can disagree on everything else but both see the
Fed as so problematic, why are we still stuck with it?
