You may not be a Trudeau fan (who is),

I am. I would trade in a second and throw in a handful of first round draft picks too.

Got it. But isn't the American dairymen's complaint that re-classification and re-pricing Canadian SNF products have undercut them?

If I recall, the US government already greatly subsidizes dairy in this country. To the amount that the dairy industry threatens at least a doubling of the prices if those subsidies were to be removed.

Complaining about "free market" issues vs a foreign government in a market that already has an incredible amount of domestic government intervention and direct support... Yup, that ignorance sounds like trump.

And how did this come up? 75 dairy farmers in WI lost their main buyer due to a trade dispute.

Justin's point, which is worth repeating, is that there is no free market in agricultural products. Every gov't subsidizes its farmers.

I am reminded of Joseph Heller's catch 22 which I believe was written in the early 60s.  Major major's father was subsidized to not grow corn. He made so much money not growing corn that he eventually branched out to not grow other crops as well. Eventually he became one of the largest non-grower of crops in the state.

In this province, we seem to have fought and won the softwood lumber dispute a number of times now. But lumber producers in Montana will file a new complaint and the whole process of dispute resolution starts up again.

I'm not sure we've actually undercut them.  If we did we'd not have such a trade surplus in favor of the US.  We may have brought our prices down to their level in order to remain competitive.  The few people I know that feed into the dairy cartel are going broke.  Production in Canada barely exceeds our own requirements and is dropping all the time.

Well, compared to Trump he's a winner for sure.  No deal!

Yes, it's a little know fact that the beaver have become the overlords of most animal populations.  They've gotten a bit uppity since March of 1975.  Except wolves.  They just eat the beavers if they try to throw their weight around

The guy in the black hat on the right is familiar, but I don't recognize who he is. I don't recognize the woman with him or the blonde woman with the Motor City Madman ... ?

Kid Rock and Audrey Berry, his girlfriend.  The blonde with Ted Nugent is his wife Shemane.  This is the best Trump can do? :-0

Woah! I can kinda see Kid Rock in there. Last I saw footage of him Kid Rock looked like he was barely getting enough calories to survive though. Is that the Baldwin Trump? The image is small enough and low res enough it's hard to tell--doesn't quite look like The Donald to me though. I don't recall ever seeing him smile quite like that. Makes me wonder if it's also a pseudo-Palin (as in an SNL kinda thing). It's not like The Donald wouldn't be accommodating to those types or anything though. The pic doesn't exactly strain credulity.

From H Giroux and Salon, another view of Trump and America.


It was said some years ago that “when fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” This left the American people unprepared for how neofascism came instead in the form of Donald Trump, a reality TV star, racist, bigot, con artist and professional wrestling aficionado.

Fascism came to America wrapped in a comb-over and carrying a crying towel...


Trump: They Were Supposed to Love Me


 
Quote
I used to get great press. I get the worst press. I get such dishonest reporting with the media. That’s another thing that really has — I’ve never had anything like it before. It happened during the primaries, and I said, you know, when I won, I said, “Well the one thing good is now I’ll get good press.” And it got worse. (unintelligible) So that was one thing that a little bit of a surprise to me. I thought the press would become better, and it actually, in my opinion, got more nasty.

He seems to view the office as a trophy that we should honor him for rather than as a set of duties that he must execute well. Sad!


I can't recall Obama or Bush ever whining this much about press coverage.
