I am not sure what is worse, shopping at Walmart or flying commercial airlines.  Currently over Helper Utah.  Both are the drizzling shyts.  Prefer to be staying at Greybull Hotel or having dinner at the Elkorn in Meeteetse.

I don't know what that means, but hey, we've found some common ground on Walmart and air travel. :cheers:

The tariff thing is really the Trump thing I'm not too mad about.  It's not a kick the can down the road kind of thing to do.  Somewhere along the way if we want to fix anything, it will take a short-term pain investment and 99% of us aren't willing to do that or take responsibility.  Trump 2020!

This will be interesting...China does not react well from external pressures.   The best we can do in the meantime is to encourage competition from other countries. If China sees they are losing market share, they may do the right thing.

China has committed atrocities to industrialize and enrich their country. Trump is making them pay the price when no one else has the power or balls to make their authoritarian rulers pay for their crimes and lack of morals. I am in favor.

 

Anyway, the current manufacturing infrastructure is currently not in place to fill the price void that is caused by these tariffs, BUT if we stay the course and don't freak out and repeal them then our manufacturing sector will recover and be able to offer these products at an almost as good of price as the chinese and it will greatly benefit US citizens and bring much-needed manufacturing jobs back to the US

I'm not in favor of tariffs in general, but IF....IF they lead to better trade deals down the road that save costs in the long run, then I'll be tolerant of them temporarily.

There's lots to think about Walmart but it seems like they know how to squeeze a buck out of a good idea better than almost anyone.

I'll rephrase it, they purchase the discount version of a good idea and the good idea gets a bad name for it

Oh, are you saying they sell some shit? Yes, but they also sell a lot of brand name merchandise at a good price. 

Not my favorite place but I respect what they've built.

That’s where most sane people looking at the issue through anything but a partisan lens would land.

I think it is funny how stupid people are about Walmart.

It is a great place, has done more for health care than any government program by forcing pharma prices on generics down.  Has done more for the poor by importing cloths and supplies from around the world at low prices.

Has employed some of the most unemployable citizens of our country and at least given them some pride in a job and an income.

Only a nose in their pretender and fool would dislike Walmart even if you didn't shop there.
