    I'm not uppity. Trade wars are incredibly stupid. It was your Pres that started it - We were left with no choice but to respond.

    Now that we're in it I advocate a no prisoners approach.

      You are in no position to take that approach. Do you think you are in the movie Braveheart or something?

      • It's "America alone" now.

        The combined might of your trading partners retaliating is going to have some sting.

        • I know you are stupid Kid so I will point out for a 2nd time - We are your #1 export for food products.

          • Facts have never been his strong suit.
            It's almost as if all his overconfident, absolutist assertions were spoonfed to him by a trusted website or subreddit. Sheeple

              Let's see if you know a damn thing about what your talking about. What percentage of the total production of food grown in the U.S. is exported to Canada?

              • If you have a point to make go ahead and make it.

                I'm not doing research for you.

                • I will support by cite MY claim however (Canada #1 destination of US food exports) since you almost asked:

                    Take a wild guess first. Obvious my point is that it isn't significant. Take a guess.

                    • Your question is irrelevant.

                      We are talking about TARIFFS which apply only to items crossing international BORDERS.

                      What you eat yourself does not apply unless your argument is that US food exports are insignificant. If that is your position then check my source above. Food is an important US export.

                      edit - Particularly in some US states. Hence the targeted tariffs in return. US farm states will be most affected.

                        Ok so you have no idea how prices work. You have no idea what you're talking about.

                        • Is that your argument?

                          • Do you think prices don't matter, or what? I should be asking you ... what is YOUR argument. How are you going to hurt us?

                              The farmers in the affected states will have fewer people buying their crops forcing them to sell at lower prices, slashing their income.
                              I am not delusional! Now if you'll excuse me, i'm gonna go dance with the purple wombat who's playing show-tunes in my coffee cup!

                              Difference is irrelevant when dosage is higher than recommended!
