I’m feeling very uninspired to come up with anything witty to say.

  • GAGOP County Conventions are happening this weekend, so are the Precinct Mass Meetings and County Convention double header for the counties under 80k in population. – Check your local party website/facebook for details.
  • HB 324 passes the GA House 123 to 40.
  • Poor puppies.
  • Pretty sure this a career killer.
  • Serial rapist in Clayton County.
  • Guess he saw too many dudes in jorts on his visits to UF?

  • A Masters in Sustainability? You can get one at GT now.

So if we place tariffs on foreign made goods and produce American business and families are still going to buy (at a higher cost), but countries stop buying American made goods and produce… what will happen?

I don’t know. Maybe another debt-financed tax cut? A dollar devaluation? Recession?

I’d feel much more comfortable about the US economy if I had any confidence at all that Trump et al wouldn’t consider it winning bigly if we sent out ships full of American made goods and they all came back empty.

It’s worth noting the trade gap isn’t all China, although they’re the big boys. The US also had record imbalances in December with Mexico and the EU. Trump has put tariffs on all three.
