To be or not to be

a lady, that is. Friends, Romans, countrymen, it’s really difficult to take the current nonstop MSM yelling. At least the nuttiness didn’t begin in this century.

Unrelated: word from the American Soybean Association. Yep, there actually is one.

    Ever notice that ANYONE the Left disagrees with is labeled “Far Right”?

    A perspective on the tariff war.

    From the column:

    And, anyway, facts are facts. Most of what the public is being told about these tariffs is either misleading or a downright lie.

    Tariffs are simply federal taxes. That’s it. The extra costs paid by importers, and consumers, goes to Uncle Sam, to distribute as he sees fit, including, for example, on Obamacare subsidies.

    It wasn’t long ago the media was complaining because Trump was cutting taxes. Now it’s complaining he’s raising them. Confused? Me too.

    And the amounts involved are trivial. Chicken feed.

    President Trump just hiked tariffs from 10% to 25% on about $200 billion in Chinese imports. In other words, he just raised taxes by … $30 billion a year.

    Oh, no!

    The total amount we all paid in taxes last year — federal, state and local — was $5.51 trillion. This tax increase that has everyone’s panties in a twist is a rounding error.
    Investors panic needlessly

    Meanwhile, the total value wiped off U.S. stocks during Monday’s panic was about $700 billion. More than 20 years’ worth of the new tariffs.
