An Early Christmas Gift from the President

Ho, ho, ho!

The President has just tweeted out news of a Christmas gift for the American people.

In a series of tweets, the President has announced that he is restoring tariffs on Brazilian and Argentinian steel and aluminum imports.

Of course, tariffs do nothing but increase the price or limit the imports of goods so taxed. hey are a tax on the American people.

Merry Christmas.

But Trump didn't stop there, he then went on to criticize the Fed for not lowering interest rates enough. That is, he wants the Fed to pump more money into the system which will distort the economy even more. Also, we are on the edge of an acceleration in price inflation, more Fed money pumping will simply make the inflationary advance more intense. It's something to look forward to in the New Year.


  1. Of late I wonder who will save us from the tin plated despot bully dictator and the recall the world at large is cheering for our downfall. Blowback is a bitch.

  2. No truer words were ever spoken than when Ross Perot said about NAFTA "That great sucking sound will be jobs leaving the country". I watched the equipment from every large industry being hauled to Mexico. I had almost gone to work for one local company that was almost immediately an empty building. They were using local cotton to make cloth. It was helping the local farmers without federal subsidy. Well, there's just so much the politicians can stand and more reasons to rob the public are their raison d'etre.....or raisun deetree as we say in the sticks. It's disgusting.
