Why no retort Lone Star...your Free(Greed Unchecked ) Market is being attacked by Trump....you are such a HYPOCRITE!!!!
So I'm a hypocrite because I am reasoned and measured and don't react like a stark-raving mad lunatic like you and the other Cry Babies. My hair is not immediately engulfed in flame and head exploding before ALL THE DETAILS are revealed -- like you. Supposedly more details to come, genius.

I'm not only living rent free in that pea brain of yours, but I'm in a full scale resort with dancing girls and margaritas flowing through the tap.

Back in May 2018 -- over a year ago -- Trump unveiled a prescription drug plan. I don't know if this latest announcement has anything to do with it. That plan sought to increase competition, improve negotiation and create incentives to lower list prices of prescription drugs and out-of-pocket costs for consumers. It included rebate-sharing in Medicare plans, promoting generic drugs over brand names and requiring manufacturers to post list prices in their advertising. None of that appeared on the surface to include subsidies -- or socialism. Again, no details.

Whenever I see the DETAILS, I'll have a better idea what's going on. That's good advice for everyone.

In the meantime, try to get that obsession and emotion checked. Maybe you and vladdie and that other dude can get a package deal with a local psychiatrist.

I didn't think it was possible to be so totally lacking in self-awareness. :oops:

Is there a syndrome/effect for that? :-k

5 Signs You Lack Self-Awareness
Being constantly defensive.
Must micromanage.
Make excuses.
You’ve been called a bully more than once.
You’re in denial.

SO, you have a problem with someone trying to find out why US drugs are the most expensive in the world?
Even those of us with Dunning-Kruger know the answer to that - what took the Bloated Orange Socialist so long?

The drug industry is obviously out of control.
Obviously - but isn't that how free enterprise and capitalism are supposed to work?
So you are saying that there is an easy solution? Pray tell how to fix the problem without interfering with normal free trade.

That's right. They're not FOR anything -- only against certain things. Wanna guess what they are? And most consider them ... friends?

Many people around the world realize how they've been "getting over" America. And America was a willing participant. Massive trade imbalances with Japan and China, in particular, have persisted for years.

FINALLY, we have a businessman at the heln instead of a swishing, kowtowing idiot, and the world is beginning to take notice.

Get off our coattails you dumbass slackers. Make your own way -- and yes I'm talking to YOU --GB, AUS and NZ. Stop sponging off the US, slackers!

True, but the fact that some people exaggerate doesn't mean that climate change isn't a problem. As I've said before, we need credible, reliable, scientifically sound data.

The trade war is over — and the winner is China
This deal — the second time President Trump gave in to China’s demands and ended restrictions on a major Chinese technology company that had been accused of threatening U.S. national interests — effectively marks the end of Trump’s trade war with China.

Why? Because it shows the president won’t go to the wall to fundamentally change the U.S.’s trade relationship with the world’s second-biggest economy. The Chinese president has clearly calculated his American counterpart is unwilling to do anything that would threaten his support among key constituencies, like farmers, as the 2020 election looms. (President Trump also has backed down big time from his bellicose (demonstrating aggression and willingness to fight) talk on North Korea and now appears ready to tacitly accept Pyongyang as a nuclear power.)

You nailed it.

Those who choose to be blind forget who started the trade imbalance and how US presidents had Americans bend over and take the screwing.

Trump has merely said, 'Hey, you going to keep screwing us over? We're going to have to balance this out with some tariffs and restrictions on trade for ourselves.' Trump is looking out for America with the goal being free and fair trade with no tariffs and no restrictions. He's said it in every instance. Until the other side agrees, Trump will continue to protect US interests.

Winning an argument that no one is making.

China, the EU, and Japan are the remaining issues with the US Trade Reps. Canada, Mexico and South Korea have been resolved.

Who the hell ever mentioned a word about Australia when it comes to trade? Australia hasn't been a trade topic anywhere except with you. If the Aussies have a trade deficit with the US, then shame on them. I guess the Aussie government is allowing the US to screw over Aussie citizens.

You really are having a bad week, LS.

Caught telling "trumpies" last weekend, and now all over the shop today. :oops:

Perhaps time for another voluntary sabbatical, and re-charge those batteries. =D>

Climate change is a NATURAL OCCURRENCE which has affected the worlds development over 4.5 Billion years. Any, half intelligent human (not to include Julia Gillard with her effin Carbon tax!), can do the math, look at history and figure that maybe we can accept 0.005% responsibility for a small portion of CO2 emissions over the past 200 years BUT it only takes ONE decent volcano eruption to match that figure not counting the sulfur emissions and other green house gasses billowing into the atmosphere!

OK we have had some smog in Thailand this year = mostly human induced BUT don't forget the June 15, 1991 Mount Pinatubo, eruption near Clark AFB in the Philippians which turned our sky red for 2 years - World wide!

C'mon Giggly - jump in now and rescue him.

Tell him how AUS means Austria.

After all, he supported you earlier - "You nailed it" - despite you hanging him out to dry earlier in the week on the "alien" question.
