Huh, no Trumpers or Never Trumpers in the thread?

Here are some talking points to get you started:

"It's worth it to take a few job losses because tariffs will pay own the debt."

"Liberals had been calling for that factory to close because of pollution, now they want to cry about it?"

That's actually pretty good, Snoofy. I'm surprised some -------- isn't already here saying that.

I Don't get the pollution reference, if anyone can inform me.

If your Wal-Mart closes ,well that must be a sign of the end of times.

But seriously folks, we all should have bought a Curtis Mathis.

My grandfather was fond of the aphorism, "The lessons you learn are the ones which hurt or cost you money."

The Wal-Mark closets to my house did indeed close yesterday! Feel sorry for the workers, but smiled when I saw it closed. Back to the topic, I'll bet 90% of these workers voted for the orange Dotard. Oh, well! Maybe try Mac Donalds.

Well, first off, it's ~120 jobs. Liberals are not allowed to be mad about this because I remember when Trump touted that he had saved the ~1200 or so jobs from being sent to Mexico (I believe it was), and the only thing any Liberals on this site had to say was complaining that 1200 jobs is nothing and how appalled they were Trump couldn't save more. Now, we have 120 and all of a sudden it's a HUGE deal to Liberals. All the other lost jobs mentioned in this article were before the tariffs and were not caused by any specific economic policy.

But I still don't understand why these articles are being posted. Anyone with an IQ over a dog's knows that international trade changes just reform the landscape. Some industries lose jobs while others boom. Happens EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. But, because partisan politics are involved, one side is going to use this type of article as ammunition just to make themselves feel better. Happens over and over by both sides. Pathetic.

You know, all these articles lately about Democracy being under attack and failing. American Democracy failed a long time ago, what we are experiencing today are the results of a failed system continuing to fail, all due to the voters supporting legislation based off of who they like and not off of the logic and reasoning of the purpose of the legislation and the possible results of such legislation. But instead of educating themselves, they just point their finger at whoever is in charge and demonize them if they don't belong to their party.

You're a Trumper. That means you're a lower associate to the Mob. As such, you're one of the reasons American democracy is failing.

#10 Economists said tariffs would cost US jobs, now you see the evidence. Bush learned this the hard way and had to backtrack. Some people never learn and vote for idiots like Trump.
