Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Labour probably wasn't mobile in Smith's day. Witness the horrific industrial slums in Great Britain.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Elementary Marx: class warfare Capitalism works that way. Capital is movable, labor is not. Money will go where wages are low. The owners of capital will suck every possible advantage from a corrupt political system, then, betray the workers. If you want wages to rise, raise the minimum wage. Lower ...

The Chinese don't eat sliced bread. They eat steamed dumplings.

"In that case, pass the chow mein . . ."

Gaybutton, clearly your experience with Chinese cuisine is limited to American take-out.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Like so many others in our generation, Firecat, like Archie Bunker, seems to be stuck in a time-warp. "The Big One: WW2" Yes, Germany and Japan were once evil. And, yes, the US rehabilitated them. But since then, war after war, atrocity after atrocity, loss after loss. The US military hasn...

I am but mad north-north-west. When the wind is southerly, I know a hawk from a handsaw.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Russia defeated the Nazis -- at an enormous cost in blood and treasure. That's just history. Truman fired up the cold war. He was an ignorant haberdasher who had no idea what he was doing. Instead of offending Stalin, he should have reached out. Harry Hopkins would have, but he was denied the nomina...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Oh, dear, Gaybutton. I did answer your challenge. Careful diplomacy. Just like the past three decades and three administrations. Hard to do with a castrated State Department and an idiot president.
