    Europe used to have empires. They were run by emperors.
    Then we had kingdoms. They were run by kings.
    Now we have countries...

    Nope, the old man was a stickler for it whenever possible. When he died, the best part of Wal-Mart did as well.

    As we have discussed before, I remember when Japanese transistor radios were the laughing stock. Japan impelled its people to buy Japanese, and those companies that made those lousey radios became.....SONY, etc.

    It is time to bite the bullet. What the USA needs to do is get behind Trump, and initiate a "Buy American" program.

    Don't count on it happening.

    Too many Globalists want to see the US fail and to surrender its sovereignty to the UN; Too many snowflakes who know no better; who embrace Socialism, etc.

    LOL that is too funny.

    They have swine die off going on there, so they are buying Pork from South Korea and Canada,
    Both of those countries are buying the pork they export from the US, as they can't produce what China needs.
    Same with soybeans and corn.
    The South Koreans and Canadians are sitting pretty, making money.

    The US overproduces in farm products in most areas, one of the reasons the US gives out so much food to relief programs.
