  1. Ah, sarcasm. The last refuge of those without an actual argument to make.
  2. The ridiculousness here is that you really believe this is going to "force" China to do anything.
  3. 1) It's not a temporary 2% decrease. 2) I'm buying goods from an AMERICAN company.
  4. I'm not re-selling anything. It's residential property management. That high-end expensive stuff? Fricking GE appliances. Not exactly fancy. And as far as I'm concerned, I pay plenty of "HelpAmerica" tax already. What's being ignored here is that some small business owners may have to let employees go to afford that 2% that you all deem so measly. If that's the case, you wanna pay it for us? The bottom line is, trade wars are dangerous, have consequences, and as demonstrated by China's yuan devaluation, are NOT easy to win.
  5. But I’m still eating 2%. Which adds up. The cost to small businesses is A LOT.
  6. This is me, not China, paying a tariff. And buying appliances that that are not only made in the USA, but whose parts are as well, is an impossibility.
  7. I just wanted to give whataboutism a try, instead of answering the question at hand. Feels icky though. Deflection instead of discussion. Short answer, it was feigned outrage from this “poor girl”.
  8. Apparently NBC NY wasn't enough for the OP, so why should some piddly Fox affiliate be ok for me?
  9. I learned the tit for tat thing from SOL. It's been made an art form here. And speaking of quick to condemn, do we know the full story of the art gallery fella, or is it being ASSUMED that we should take his word for it? Which I believe is what I was crucified(rightly) for about the whole Smollett thing. Maybe we should wait until the full investigation is completed? You know, like you all insisted previously.
  10. Nope.
  11. "Kentucky Man Punches Anti-Trump Protester Several Times in the Face, Crowd Chants 'Lock Him Up'" Do you think Fox News will report this? There's crazies on both sides, regardless of political affiliation. <style>.mcclatchy-embed{position:relative;padding:40px 0 56.25%;height:0;overflow:hidden;max-width:100%}.mcclatchy-embed iframe{position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%}</style><div class="mcclatchy-embed"><iframe src="https://www.kentucky.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article233433517.html/video-embed" width="640" height="400" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe></div>
  12. Me making a comment about Jim Jordan in a thread titled “Jim Jordan Rocks” is off topic? You ok, guy?
  13. Jim Jordan is a piece of sh*t who turned a blind eye while college students were being sexually assaulted. Every time I see his face I want to punch it.
  14. First, I’m well aware of exactly what collapsed due to the fact that I watched it happen from 12 miles away. I also watched and lived with smoke plumes for days afterward. Second, 1.4% is a completely inaccurate number. If each building was 110 stories, and the planes struck between the 93rd and 99th floors of tower 1, and the 77th and 85th of tower two, that ain’t 1.4%. Third, it wasn’t molten steel. It was the plane. Despite Gage’s argument about the color. Which was wrong. There’s no doubt the eyewitnesses heard explosions. That’s what happens when planes full of jet fuel fly into buildings full of combustible sources. Also the sound of concrete and steel plummeting to the ground. It’s really hard for me to understand why you believe all this. What’s the motive? Yours as well as the secret cabal that supposedly caused it? What is it that made you so angry and distrustful that you believe something so insane? There’s always a reason. Just looking for yours.
  15. Of all the things in this thread, THAT’s what you’re questioning??? Come on man. The American Institute, the Royal Institute, the Minority Institute and every other society of architects in the world has agreed that the Gage group are wrong. I’d like to see a list of the 3000.
