Of course it is a fake news story. Don't be surprised if the Biden administration shuts down the whole coast of Maine before they put the blame where it really belongs.
This is a pissing contest between China and America. There's no way America is going to take the blame for this with no evidence to support it. It doesn't matter who's in charge. No American president will bow down to China like that.
Biden probably would. He already will not hold China accountable for it. He does not even call it the China Virus.
America needs China's shit to be shipped over - goods. All that plastic, disposable, planned obsolescence stuff that we westerners think we 'need' that got outsourced over there for cheaper labour and manufacturing.If America can't find proof, what are they supposed to do about it?You strong arm China, and they strong arm back.It's called diplomacy and political chess.
Trump would probably make them take a haircut on the trade deficit for starters.
When one country imposes x dollars in tariffs... what does the other country do? Right back at them. Trump did this to Canada. It's tit for tat. Canada just upped the cost of lumber, ketchup... equalling the exact same dollar amount.Countries need each other. China started all this bullshit, and they continue to lie and obfuscate. (Do I support them and all their garbage? No. Not one bit. I believe nothing that comes out of that country via the government.But America needs China's products. They cannot just set fire to diplomacy.Trump thinks he can "win" any battle. He's wrong.What a prick.www.youtube.com/watch
America must end their dependence on China. A lot of drugs are manufactured in China. The damn pharmaceutical companies charge ten bucks a pill to begin with. They should not be having it made in China to save another dime.
I'm happy we agree on that.America is addicted to the low prices on many things. It sucks paying more, I know, trust me. I feel it every day here, having been able to compare it for a long time. Canada doesn't manufacture nearly enough either. And America has a way bigger population and therefore buying power so I miss those low costs. But this is life. I didn't know any pharmaceuticals are manufactured in China. Big pharma is setting the prices, I'm sure. I'm sick of wasting money on 'herbal' remedies from China via amazon, all claiming close to 5/5 ratings. It's all lies. Another disgusting industry.Honestly, all this stuff enrages me. Add oil, and we've got more than a trifecta here.But I want to be clear - I think Trump is the most despicable, disreputable, destructive human being, who divided America, and I loathe him with every fibre of my body. I've been mostly keeping a lid on my opinions about him but I could go on a long tirade about wtf is wrong with him. I've exhibited a looot of restraint on gag about this. Biden has been bumbling, and bungling a lot of things. But in my opinion he is nowhere near the fool that Trump is. They are not in the same category. Trump is not fit for government. You and I strongly, strongly, disagree on this. But I don't want to go down this path with you. It's not worth destroying a pleasant friendship and current respect we have for one another.I answered this q of yours because you clearly are sending out autoinvites, and most of your qs are fine, but debating Trump and American strong arm tactics is not a good topic for us at all.
According to macroeconomics money has a multiplying effect. If something is made in this country, a job is created and that person will buy goods and services from other local businesses. It is estimated that that dollar earned by that person ends up generating four dollars for the economy. If the money just goes to China, that person does not have a job and there is no contribution to the local economy.
I read it in the Portland Press Herald yesterday.

In fact, better yet, I want to see the lobster that CAN snieeze or cough and the Guinness Book of World Records that this is notated in!
I don't know if you can tell I am being sarcastic. Some people think that I really believe this.
There is NO TONE in this writing. You cannot tell someone is being sarcastic because there are those who DO believe such things. Note that you are not to make sure.
I am not kidding about this.
Oh, I know, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a joke at her expense. So rarely do we get to reference Maine.
Yes, she is sort of a joke. So is Mills.
I am not making this up.www.pressherald.com/.../
