    That hemp oil can be used as fuel for vehicles, which has about everything to do with the Marijuana Act of 1937.

    SC is too late to the party. They dipped their toes in the water 3 years ago, but Colorado et.al. was already throwing down in the deep end. Try and order a roll of drip tape today and they’ll tell you everything is headed west. A 20ac SC “hemp farm” = a 1,500ac CO farm.

    Our government was funded solely by tariffs until 1919. The Chinese need our market much more than we need theirs. They subsidize the industries such as steel and aluminum that they export keeping prices artificially low. At these prices our mills are forced to close. Once our mills close they raise their prices. It’s pretty simple really.

    That's the way I've understood the trade situation with China over the last 30 years. When it comes to trade, corporate subsidy by government, corporate espionage, trademark infringement, intellectual property theft, etc., China is nothing but a rogue trade partner that has been allowed to run loose for too long.
    The USA needs to be willing to stop this BS which will require a little financial pain (short term) but the end results wil make the USA much stronger IMO.
    Trump is the guy that can get it done.

    These people still cannot grasp Mr. Trump’s shocking election two and a half years ago. If that election was about any one thing, it was about work.

    I think one of the main pushes of the current tariffs is the apparent state-sponsored intellectual property theft that is prevalent in China. A company sources a product from a china factory and they are forced to transfer their technology and intellectual property rights to the local companies. Many of these companies then simply copy it and sell it as their own, patents be damned often undercutting the original US company's product.

    Some products.. that really doesn't affect me. Though some how Walmart always seems to affect me even if I don't walk inside of one. Right now, I'm paying taxes to service that nasty flea market. And why are you posting CNN so early, negatives ways.. Walmart and CNN, I think that was for K.

    companies that manufacture goods in china on the tariff list will either move manufacturing to another country or push that cost increase to the customer or some of both

    So businesses don't really pay for the tariffs? They are passed onto the customer?

    If only someone could have seen this coming.
