Was Trump trying to bring China to its knees? It seems the trade imbalance has increased.

What has been Trumps strategy? If those items produced in China were produced in the US they would cost more.

Why do you care? Your PM endorses Trump's trade war with China:

I do not support the current Prime Minister. When the backbench and opposition called for Royal Commission into the banks he called it a "populist whinge" Forced to it became clear that the banks were doing illegal activities. https://financialservices.royalcommissi ... fault.aspx He went on a holiday to Hawaii and was shamed into returning early because of the fires we are currently experiencing. So no comment on whether the Trade war was worth it just a "hey look over here" response.

Why should I click on your links when you never click on anyone else's links? All you do is link-and-run because *reasons*. You can't even be bothered to highlight the relevant portion of the link you're posting because you're lazy. Why would anyone want to get into a "discussion" with you when you don't really discuss anything to any degree?

I think I will stay off politics in this forum. The rapture according to your secretary of state might be anytime soon. At least Australian politicians are generally more skeptical and cynical. Trump's spiritual adviser Paula White is there to deliver the US from the demons. I'll stick with Bart Ehrman.

I literally give less than two ____ what you think about US politics.

If I'm honest, I have to say yes (maybe not so much subs - I've been ignoring his posts for a while now. I also put Smokey on ignore).

But it would be more accurate to say that I care that their kinds of opinions exist, as opposed to what they specifically think.

I don't actually think you care about aussies' opinion as much as you're annoyed that he seems to be hypercritical of USA while ignoring problems at home. It's a kind of caring (in this context, meaning that it's caught your attention enough to comment on it).

Mostly, I was just ____ with you. I think I knew what you meant.

We've been around here a long time together (us long-timers, anyway). We've all noticed each other's patterns, I imagine.

For super sensitive Americans about one of their many spiritual folks. Only in America

Because Bakker isn't one of our "many spiritual folks" and no one takes him seriously.

Why don't you know that?
