    That's ok Dementia Bidet will write blank checks to these stupid blue states saying he is helping with Corona relief. In actuality it will be a payoff and the cycle will repeat again!

    I'm just curious, have you given any thought to what will happen to the energy and agriculture sectors should Trump's policies be revoked? The country is on lockdown. How did the price of oil double in the last 6 months? How has energy companies that cannot service their debt (falling angels) remained in business? Hint? The Fed bought their debt, which enabled them to borrow more money.

    Trump started a trade war with China; whereby, China shifted its purchases of agriculture products to other countries. As a result, Trump provided subsidies of almost $50 billion to the largest agriculture corporations. Do you believe that Biden should continue the trade war and continue to subsidize the agriculture industry?

    Trump has been subsidizing the steel and aluminum industry since the day that he declared the two industries were strategic to national security and slapped 25% tariffs on foreign products. Both of these red state industries have suffered since the tariff was invoked. Do you believe that Biden should continue subsidizing these industries?

    Approximately 20 states receive more federal assistance than the federal revenue that they contribute. The top 14 states on a list of those states receiving the most relief to revenue contributed are red. Do you think that ratio is going to change under Biden?

    Outside of the idiot, you're going to have a hard time selling your argument. If Biden stops subsidizing red states....

    Moron, the reason the Agriculture producers aren't sending as much as they want to, is a direct result of International Ocean Carriers repositioning empty containers from the interior of the US to China and NOT providing them to the US Agriculture exporters. The import back to the US right now is generating more revenue for them and they can turn that equipment much quicker. As opposed to allowing an empty to be used for export to China where the revenue is not sufficient and having to wait for it to become empty in China. So rather than generate pennies and delay the container to turn as an import, the ocean carriers are choosing to reposition the empty to China at a cost that is going to be mitigated with the high ocean freight revenue they are generating with spot rates on imports to the US due to COVID demand for online purchasing, and bypassing the US exporter. The exports could be much, much higher if these ocean carriers would treat the exporter differently.

    This is being investigated by the FMC as directed by Pres Trump, as it's hurting the US Agriculture industry and other exporter industries. Which is why there are ships anchored at the ports of LA/LB waiting to get discharged.

    But go find a link...I'll wait.

    So, you're saying that China lied in it's negotiations with the US, and broke it's agreement to buy more US Ag products?

    Are you talking about the Ag subsidies that existed long before Trump came into office, or the short-term relief provided during his trade negotiations with China?

    Absolutely. Allowing China to lie, cheat and steal isn't a good strategy. Estimates of US losses from their underhanded behavior are $600 to $800 billion a year. Merely turning a blind eye to that is a stupid strategy, komrade.

    Subsidies in the Ag industry have been going on for a long time. They certainly didn't start under Trump.

    Should the US provide subsidies? The answer is, it depends on what kind. After all, there's a defense aspect to maintaining an Ag industry in the US, and virtually every other country has the same opinion about its own Ag industry. As long as it continues to be true for the US, then he should - as long as other countries are subsidizing *their* Ag industries, the US will have to protect its own via tariffs and subsidies, here.

    And by the way, if the WTO has been unable to come to an agreement on this very subject for forty years, it's unlikely you're going to find a solution any time soon. No matter how highly you think of yourself.

    Trump was hardly the beginning of the view that Steel and Aluminum are strategically valuable industries.

    That makes the other thirty, suckers, doesn't it?

    Which means red states are smarter than blue states, right?

    In the context of the post you're replying to, that's kind of a silly question. It's likely the ratio will change, because conditions in the country are undergoing considerable change, at the moment. Not only that, but Biden, if early signals are an indication, is going to hand out money to everyone, no longer just as relief for the poor. In the age of newly manufactured poverty, it's hard to say how that "aid" will end up being apportioned, but it seems unlikely that apportionment will remain exactly the same.

    Isn't that just common sense? Why would you even ask such a question?

    Your entire post was idiotic, komrade. Just one distortion and poorly considered thought after another. Same as usual.

    I would love to see the government stay the hell out of business decisions. China is what it is, and there are dozens of countries lining up to take their place if they are cut off. The best business plan of the century is Apple, who has a great working relationship with China. Americans have made a fortune off of Apple.

    Looking forward to the cubicle dweller’s spin. He’ll push the subject somewhere else complete ignoring the facts.
    He and xx are related.
