  • Hong Kong Support Bill

    In this era of polarization in politics, can we congratulate Trump on signing a bill that both sides of both houses almost 100% endorse.

    Some of us can, but there will be some that can never credit Trump for anything, even when they agree with him.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedy. -- Ernest Benn

      How can the Democrats endorse anything by a president they are trying to impeach?

      Oh...yeah...trying for Brownie points before the elections.

          That would require suspending reality completely. Good luck with that.

          BTW: Got a link to the bill?

            Did Trump have much choice to sign it?
            We are not now that strength which in old days
            Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
            Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
            To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                Except for the fact he didn't want to sign it. He was forced to.

                    Just heard a commentator on Fox say it. When I first heard about it, I thought something was up.

                    You see, the Trump family has a lot of their products made in China. Ties, Clothes, etc. They love the president of China.

                    The family does not want to anger China. They have brands that rely on the Chinese for capitalistic reasons.

                    Capitalism prevents the Trump family from bringing those jobs home to America.

                      I see, more nonsense. Trump elected to go into a Trade War and put China into a recession because of he loves the POTC.

                      Ivanka closed her fashion line due to idiots making it a constant issue she did not wish to be bothered with. Your commentator is a moron to think that any of the the Trump products from China is nothing more than a side gig to enhance branding, They can get that stuff made anywhere, many being even cheaper. Putting their name of concrete and steel is where there wealth pours from.

                      A presumption is not proof. Your trolling is noted.

                        I'm only interested in the facts. With the Trump family, they come first. America 2nd. Been that way their whole lives.
                        Your first part isn't accurate

                          He never mentioned Ivanka, he said the Trump family.

                          Also Ivanka closed her clothing line because sales tanked.

                          But despite that she is still getting trademarks approved

                          And if there were other places why was Trump STILL using Chinese factories to make American flags in 2018? (and still could be as far as I know).

                            China should grant Hong Kong certain privileges, just like cities got in the Middle Ages. It worked for hundreds of years, until statism took over. Communism accentuates all the worst aspects of the state. Unfortunately, the Chinese government is like the Empire in Star Wars. Uniform oppression for everyone.
