.................delivering on election promises despite the neo liberal loony Dems.
It seems to me you often write the first thing that pops into your head, without having a single clue.
What Is Neoliberalism?

Neoliberalism is a policy model—bridging politics, social studies, and economics—that seeks to transfer control of economic factors to the private sector from the public sector. It tends towards free-market capitalism and away from government spending, regulation, and public ownership.

Often identified in the 1980s with the conservative governments of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, neoliberalism has more recently been associated with so-called Third Way politics, which seeks a middle ground between the ideologies of the left and right.

The Republicans are far more neoliberal than any one in the Dems.

Basically your description of ' neo liberalism' is correct, but it has tended over the last millenia to mean slightly different interpretations in different parts of the world. In US, during the tenure of Clinton and Gore, it was the Dems who conceived modern American Liberalism. So the term has 'morphed ' in its exact meaning. When I used the phrase, perhaps incorrectly , I was refering to the current worldwide push for so called progressive ideas, such as Soros's 'open society ,which is a front for more control. Like all good ideas, they tend to get hijacked and their actual meanings distorted.

A US $130 million drone is whacked by the Iranians. That's one pricey drone. Why don't they just use drones from say Walmart? They might even be harder to detect because they're so small. I'm pleased to see Trump keeping his cool. Cancelling (or delaying) the retaliatory strike was a brave move.

I'm going to give the Orange Kleptocrat credit for not starting another war in the Middle East, though you can't hide the fact that the current situation is entirely of his making.

It is unbelievable that he is taking advice from Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli PM who helped convince GWB to invade Iraq based on fabricated reports of WMDs or that the architect of that war John Bolton is now back on the scene.

For once it is a relief that the man is a ****** moron who doesn't understand anything more complex than ordering cheeseburgers from McDonalds. After directing a retalaliatory strike he later discovered drones are unmanned and cancelled the strike. He then made the bizarre statement that the drone must have been shot down on the orders of a rogue Iranian General. This bit of intel obviously coming from his own imagination.

This clown can launch nuclear weapons. 8-[

Criminal in Chief has increased taxes on consumers and is subsidising loss making industries out of the federal budget.

Sounds pretty socialist to me.

The tariffs he has applied, without congressional approval, are a tax on US citizens and he's paying Soy bean farmers for the lost revenue he caused.

That wouldn't even happen in France.

Re: Trump addresses EU trade deficit

Post by Zico » June 22, 2019, 7:07 am

Wooah! Easy tiger ;)

I've other things to do but I'll try read all that eventually.

However that second last bolded paragraph is an odd one.

Of course the US has a domestic market capable of using only it's own goods. The US invented consumerism. Once upon a time though it was a market for European products, as a colony. After the wars of the early 20th Century the situation was reversed and Europe became a market for US production. Trade has ebbed and flowed since.

The only countries that have attempted to take a zero sum approach to trade deficits were Communist!

We know how that worked out.

The industries that are failing in the US, like coal, steel and ICE automotive are from a past generation. Like blacksmiths their market is shrinking and will eventually vanish.

The Orange moron trying to keep them going by sabotaging future industries is just ****** stupid.

It gives competitors like China a head start and will possibly have a detrimental effect on the US long term.

..but he doesn't give a **** and maybe you don't either.

Yet it's people like the soy bean farmers who put him in office so they get what they sow.

Yes, your last point is a real worry. It must be a nightmare for the US military. They've probably endlessly gamed the various scenarios on the F... Moron ordering launching nukes all over the place. The US is clearly the greatest threat to human civilization when a moron is in charge. Udon is unfortunately close to the likely action. China and Putin aren't likely to kick it all off.

I expect US adversaries such as Iran if attacked with US nukes would release biological weapons from their embassies and consulates in the US. The US health system and its severe limitations would be hopelessly unprepared for this. Hopefully this is recognized by US decision makers and factored into the US war mongering posture. I fear not.

The headlines are now about Trump attempting to rape a woman in the 1990s. And Trump has not surprisingly denied the allegations and said I've never met this person in my life.

Blimey, the US has sunk really really low when this kind of person is still the president.

If the commander-in chief responds with a military strike, the pissants will moan.
If the commander-in-chief decides not to strike, the pissants will moan.

I think the pissants just want to moan.

You libtards should get together and come up with the same opinion. This damned if he does and damned if he doesn't shows that obviously you simply hate Trump and have no logical thoughts.
