What a strange reply.

Honestly it's so stupid that I find myself fixating on the fact that he thinks elephants weigh 800 lbs, because there's nothing more to be said after he decided to triple down on not even understanding the basic outline of what TPP was.


ITP: elephants are born as fully grown adults.

Would you rather I'd have gone with "gorilla" instead so you can make some hamfisted link to racist tropes of the 1940's?

In this analogy, the US is a peanut while China is an 800 pound elephant.


More like every other nation in Asia, which China can merely drown with raw materials and drown their commodities markets for those raw materials...or does everyone forget when they did that to us around 2010 after buying up what amounted to the entire global supply of iron, aluminium, and copper for the year.

I was selling electrical supplies at the time. The price of a 250' roll of 14/2 Romex that I had previously been selling for ~$19 shot up to almost $100. If I quoted you a price on wire, it was good until closing that day. Forget pricing on aluminum conduit or steel wall boxes.

You can't rein in China by courting it's neighbors when it's neighbor's economic impact is a fraction of theirs, and China is still pulling the strings of literally every facet of their economies. Good luck manufacturing anything to compete with China if China already controls the supply of your raw materials.

Pretty sure most Democrats were against it. At the very least it's not and never was popular. A more recent perspective on it:

Trump was against it, so it must have been the right thing to do! --261 libs.

So since you're dodging, I'll ask again: Now that you know that the TPP does the opposite of what you thought it did, do you still stand by Trump's decision?

So let me phrase the question to say something the opposite of what you were saying, as disingenuously as possible as a gotcha, don't you agree, Whiskey? --McSame

lmao

It seems kinda mean to be feeding a 6-month-old elephant peanuts when it isn't even close to weaned.

You've got a serious victim-complex. I'd have rather you done 2 minutes of research and had the class to admit that you were mistaken about the particulars of the TPP instead of making strained analogies.
Is this finally a conundrum that CAN'T be solved by helicopter theft?

South Korea is currently run by the left wing, so of course they need to remember this next election.
