    1) Trump impetuously breaks something, making it worse for many, many American workers and companies.
    2) He later walks back his azzinine policy and the result is suspension of the pain and economic damage he caused.
    3) Claims huge, tremendous, biggest win in history. Record breaking win.
    4) The net result accomplishes nothing and he and his cronies did nothing to ameliorate the underlying problems.
    5) Wash, rinse, repeat.

    So he is doing what he has been doing for years, lying his **** off. What is the ROI for all the business lost?

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    The sacrificed pawns are the farms and other businesses lost.

    You mean like the coal towns?

    Coal towns: dying before Trump and his China deal, dying after. I Don't get your point.

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 25,982 Senior Member

    Forcing those people to depend on a dying industry, it has been dying for years now, without offering them better healthier options is how conservatives keep them poor and struggling so they will believe all of Trump's empty promises.

    Natural gas prices play a big role in loss of profits in coal. The deal with China may not help much. They aren't in the top five of coal exports to other countries. And the agreement to increase imports from the U.S. is spread out over all the energy sources, so LNG and oil will take some of the profit from coal.

    Point is, to make a better life for the whole, sometimes the few suffer.

    How does a govt "offer" a different option for a dying industry? Govt has nothing to do with it.

  • Buffco2Buffco2 Posts: 620 Senior Member

    And if we're talking about keeping a people struggling, well... look no further than the democrat party and blacks.

    You are going to have to validate that BS with facts.

    It is called adult education and training. Maybe if we gave the same subsidies to other industries that we do coal.
