Sustainable? We were on the path to destruction " communism " the ship is still sinking but the bilge pumps are working.

Yes, there will be changes. Perhaps we will ship beans to South America... Yes, there will be winners and losers. Northern Minnesota iron mines could be one of the winners.

I think the underlying issue is most of the benefits from "free trade" have gone to the elites with capital to invest.

Canada is hard to deal with in the agricultural and seafood industry. The US doesn't need the wood, seafood or beef we have plenty of our own. But the Canadians bring their money south in the winter and spend it, then head back north. Canada also doesn't cause any immigration issues, because there's no .... hole countries north of them. I think we can work our differences out with Canada, but screw Mexico and the illegals that travel through Mexico to get here.

yes they have plenty of immigration issues ssince they allow pretty much anyone in.. they go there because they can't get into the US.. then the plan is to get into the US.. which they do.

IF you ever get in the same position you'll be at the bankruptcy lawyers office before daylight to start the paperwork for your Chapter 7.

Your full of crap on this one TB. I'm not into raping the government even though it's like taking candy from a baby. As a commercial fishermen I've been screwed by government regulations since 1982. MAGA

Heard this before Grit. You never really know how you'll respond until you're faced with it.
