Tariffs..?
Taxes..?
Trump keeps saying that tariffs are revenue.
This is wrong.
Tariffs are fees..taxes..penalties, paid when the products are purchased...1 dollar of aluminum..25% tariff..aluminum now costs @$1.25.
I bought Eno hubs for a couple of wheels...couldn't be happier.
Now I want 40mm clinchers ..I thought to look around for some hubs..wanting something cool. Can Trump please clear up for the companies and consumers why prices are changed.higher when China is sending service charge checks?

Tariffs are taxes..we are paying taxes..fees,extra money for washing machines, car wheels..food..things at Target and Walmart..bicycles..and bike stuff..hubs!!!!!

what business is it of anyone else's as to whether someone gets a tattoo over a scar??
who the hell has the time to spend worrying about such a thing so much, that they decide to attempt to create a law forbidding it??

people don't need protection from themselves, but protection from such oxygen thieving politicians :rolleyes:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/may/20/trump-stops-ex-white-house-counsel-don-mcgahn-testifying-to-congress
Donald Trump has blocked the former White House counsel Don McGahn from testifying before Congress about the special counsel report on Russian election interference, prompting sharp criticism and even threats of impeachment.

In a legal opinion released on Monday, the justice department said lawmakers on Capitol Hill cannot compel McGahn, who was subpoenaed by the House judiciary committee, to answer their questions under oath.
...
Travelling to a rally in Pennsylvania, Trump was asked why he was asking McGahn to defy a congressional subpoena. “Well, as I understand it, they’re doing that for the office of the presidency, for future presidents,” he replied, according to a pool report. “I think it’s a very important precedent. And the attorneys say that they’re not doing that for me. They’re doing it for the office of the president. So we’re talking about the future.”


Normal Trump BS or they're all ready thinking of the next crook in the White House? Geezus!

As we saw w Watergate.no longview. Something obviously wrong and the proceedings stated. Turned out people from both sides were not immune to truth, Tricky Dick ran out of things to pull out of the hat.

Pelosi is the same as the rest putting party before country. Thinking of the win for the white house instead of the people. Trump was always a joke. A self made man,not w smoke and mirrors,instead using the craft of Hollywood. People,and Donald himself believes in the make believe character. Forget the numbers show he is a loser,liar,cheat. and holds the title of biggest single financial loser in American tax loss history.
Now Trump is defying the rule of law,deciding that executive privilege is meant to mean anyone the executive knows can be blessed,anointed as privileged. Defying anything Trump arbitrarily decides is unjust or fake.
The only question is will an upcoming President pardon Trump for his conduct when he is convicted later, once the sitting President privilege has lapsed.
The guy is a criminal but so is Nancy if she ignores it.

I'll repeat something that I've said (too) many times: None of the politicians in WA DC have the peoples' best interests in mind.

The FAA should mandate minimum standards. If you sit or stand to pee..something should be available,if you hold an American bought ticket.
If you serve food or beverage you should be available for passengers peek hours. There are no Christian chickens.period. If your employees like to dive a bush.eat an azs, whatever to release while not at work.embrace.how people exchange fluids or what happens at the doctor is none of your fucvkin business.
Stand up America.
This ain't no kingdom.

https://english.alarabiya.net/en/New/middle-east/2019/05/22/Trump-names-woman-as-head-of-US-Air-Force.html
President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday he had nominated Barbara Barrett, a former ambassador and Arizona businesswoman, to lead the US Air Force.

Barrett, 68, served as the US ambassador to Finland from 2008 to 2009 under the George W. Bush administration. She also chaired an aeronautics research and development center, The Aerospace Corporation, until 2017.

“She will be an outstanding Secretary!” Trump tweeted.

A former lawyer and test pilot, Barrett is also a board member at the Rand Corporation, a think tank that provides research and analysis to the US armed forces.

She and her husband Craig, the former CEO of American technology giant Intel, are major Republican donors.

"Your wife wants to be head of the Air Force? No problem! How much are you donating this year?"

While I think Trump has a great deal of contempt for the people of this country, and appointing another crony is dumb..look at Ben Carson. Barrett at least knows what an airplane is..Carson is in a life or death role. He doesn't know anything..and that unfortunately is no surprise. Lots of our most vulnerable depending on the housing support from HUD.

What is all this doing to our kids?
We have a "wait and see" history on too many things..from car seats,lead paint,prenatal care, school and lawn darts. There are things that are obviously harmful to children just a matter of political will to put in some, sometimes logical safeguards. Everyone knows that dirty water and air are bad for kids. Why are we waiting? On things like vape pens?
What are little evolving boys learning about manhood from Trump?
Does anyone want their son to follow in our President 's footsteps on anything? Problem solving? The way he treats and talks to people? His treatment of women? His views on science? Education? His opinions about the environment?
I see Trump as more dangerous than Iran or North Korea..
So many kids need so many things and he provides nothing..not as a human being and as a political leader.if any child lied as much as Donald any parent would feel at the very least overwhelmingly shame.

is herr trump really that ignorant or does he KNOW that waht he says is BS? Which, considering intent, is called a 'LIE'..so either he's dumb as dirt or a liar..what a great choice.

Yes, taxes that go to subsidize farmers being hurt by this dummass...

More from the trump clowncar...
Meh. Your puny laws don’t apply to Mr. Trump. This is just the opinion of a bunch of pencil-necked deep-state lawyers, anyway. Trump much prefers the manly advice of his personal attorney, Bill Barr, who says he doesn’t have to give Congress anything.
