AUS has always been the accepted truncation for Australia, NOT Austria. Try harder next time to make a point.

One phrase: paragraph topic sentence.

Three paragraphs. Three topics. Trade. Trump. Slackers.

No mention of trade in the third paragraph.

English language usage and structure is a must in good reading comprehension.

First, Australia, now Austria? :)

"Who the hell ever mentioned a word about Australia when it comes to trade? "LS said Well read on

Giggle Puss wrote and you agreed with it

"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! 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!
LS, You nailed it."

I know it was awhile ago some 3-4 hours ago, dementia setting in oh Wise One of BS

Sitting and waiting for your next piece of crap to come out Like I said we pitch and you SWING!!!!

I am shocked - you recognised it straight away, but it has taken LS about half a dozen uninformed posts to finally grasp it.

Plus he needed to throw in a gratuitous late English lesson. :-k

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!
Correctamundo.
Well, yes, of course; but you're avoiding the point. Yes, climate change is natural and omnipresent. The question is whether humans are hastening or exacerbating climate change to our own detriment, and whether, to the extent that the change is detrimental to our continued existence, we can slow it. Isn't that really the issue?

Re: Democrats, Republicans and Elections

Post by Lone Star » July 7, 2019, 5:49 am

National polls, pretty useless in a presidential election since presidents are elected state-by-state, but here it is.

New Q poll shows Uncle Joe dropping to 22%. Kamasutra is at 20%. Pocahontas at 14%. Commie Bernie at 13%. Saint Butti has dropped all the way to 4%, and the rest really don't matter and never did.

Biggest loser was Saint Butti. Biggest winner was Kamasutra.

Bad last week for Dems. The only somewhat sane candidate they have is slipping -- Uncle Joe. However his flip-flopping on everything to go further and further and left erodes that sanity. Dems handed a July 4 win to Trump on a gold platter by refusing to participate in honoring America. Dems also came out against the American flag -- something else to hate America about. Some of the Dems campaigned in Mexico trying to win some future illegal votes. Trump's job numbers were about 40% higher than Wall Street expectations. The extremists revealed themselves in living color after two debates to being for gun confiscation, open borders, taxpayer funded health insurance for illegal aliens, free college, taxpayer funded forgiveness of student loan debt, slavery reparations, gay reparations, more forced busing, outlawing health insurance companies, guaranteed jobs and health care and day care, get rid of the Electoral College, and the biggest foolery of all -- taxpayer funded abortions for transsexual women who are really guys who will never need an abortion.

These Democrats are making Barry Obama look like Barry Goldwater.

Democrats are the undisputed Champions of Unintended Consequences.

Re: Trump addresses EU trade deficit

Post by Lone Star » July 7, 2019, 6:12 am

US-China trade talks resume this week by long distance.

I'm not optimistic of anything resulting from this in the way of a final deal. Ever. Looks more and more like China is just slow-playing it all forever -- through the election and beyond. US tariffs still remain in place. Trump has allowed US companies to make some money and sell to Huawei, but Huawei is still on the list of companies whose product purchases are discouraged in the US and to allies.

Thanks for uploading the clip, articulate and well reasoned, now all l need to do is sit back and wait for the naysayers to contradict the content of the clip, no that wont happen,lets attack the person's credibility instead. Sound familiar?

As usual, all the hateful bitter people are able to do is to nit pick logical posts. It must frustrate them that the US is coming back in a big way. Trump has caused one problem. There are now more jobs than people to fill them. Fair trade policies are being hammered out and Mexico has been pressured to help with illegal immigrants. Had the badly needed wall been built, a lot of the problems would not have been created. Stopping the wall from being built wasn't about money, it was simply a stop and obstruct Trump tactic. There are still morons who say there is no problem at the border. Now more money than the cost of the wall is being spent to deal with all the illegals that were caused by a useless congress failing to revise stupid liberal immigration laws. The libtards are winning that one at the cost to the taxpayers.

A few of the posters here make it obvious that all that they want is to see Trump fail at the expense of the country. Putting the US first irritates them enough to call him names and insult people who support MAGA. They really need to get their heads out of their backsides and back into the sunshine to take a look at the progress.

Actually, according to the Evening Standard, just yesterday, Boris Johnson has vowed to make Britain the “greatest place on Earth” if he gains the keys to Number 10 as he said he will united the country by delivering Brexit.

He's going quite a few steps further than Trump, and I applaud the move. I hope Boris is successful.

So there you have it, glalt. Exactly what I briefly stated earlier in this thread.

Your sincere question, asking what their solution is, was completely ignored. That would require thought. They're not about to engage at that level.

The CBoS (shrinking in number to about five now) have no interest in having a coherent, intelligent discussion on topic. It's about playing 'gotcha' on the most inconsequential strands of bellybutton lint that they can find to manipulate and twist into some kind of self-perceived personal victory.

So it went from Trump wanting to put something in place to try to lower drug costs for all Americans, to Trump being a socialist, to me being accused of being a hypocrite, to your sincere question, to international trade, to Australia and Austria, equaling two thread pages of circular foolishness that resulted in nothing. Their tactics mirror the Democrats in America.

You see it happen in every thread that has anything to do with Trump or America. All of the CBoS are intent upon driving every thread to produce the same result, which is why it's a waste of time to engage them.

If THEY ask a question, they really don't want an answer to what they're asking. They're looking for a response that will give them some opening or something they can twist into some red herring or straw man. If YOU ask a question requiring anything specific, you're wasting your time. You might get a response, but it won't answer the question.

None of them are really good at any of it other than making a mess.

Now. They'll come flying back in here with righteous fists held high against all of what they don't like about you or me or Trump or America or whoever else challenges their position. It might not be this thread or today, but they'll keep pulling similar stunts. Best to just avoid the engagement.

You keep asking the same question, and I continue to provide the same answer.

Climate change happens. No one can tell us specifically how much in any measurable way that man affects it. No one can tell us specifically in any measurable way how they plan to slow, stop or reverse it.

Until those things can be communicated well for the average person to be able to understand it and see where their efforts and money will go, there will be no rise in the number of Believers.
