So when we're not all 5 star generals, experts in diplomacy and political manuveuring, masters of espionage, we're business consultants for CEOs in the car manufacturing industry.

Come now, Windy.
I never claimed to be a master of diplomacy. I'm much too blunt for that.

Why not? It's more fun than being ourselves all the time.

Basic Rule of Business: Pass the cost on to the consumer.

That's nothing any executive doesn't already know. I'm just pointing it out. If you think tariffs are going to cause foreign automakers to open plants in America and close them in countries with a lower labor cost then please lay out an explanation of why. Otherwise this site is still called The Comment Section and I will continue to comment on whatever I want. People will pay more for their F-150 and get right over it. They already do for gas. The clock is ticking if Trump's going to blow up NAFTA. I think he's scared to rip up a decades old trade agreement and is just tiptoeing around trying to find cracks. Imo this is a liberal ass move wanting to raise tariffs thinking jobs will fall out of the sky because of a little financial pressure. A fiscal conservative would realize how unlikely this is to result in increased American jobs. But that's nothing compared to playing to your base so you can get re-elected which is the actual point of all this, not Making America Great.

And your take on this is?

Only very rich experts. Not-very-rich experts are of the much-hated "elite" class; the academics with their ivory-tower theories and total lack of practical experience. Not to mention, academia has a bias, because education is a liberal form of creeping communism. On the ungodliness scale, it's next to fascism.

Thank goodness Trump's current cabinet includes:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/05 ... isers.html

Each entry includes a Fun Fact! Super!

Those fun facts are worth a scan.

Fun fact: A decorated military veteran, Mattis earned the nickname "Mad Dog," but he’s not necessarily a big fan of it.


Wow.

Fun fact: Zinke served in the U.S. Navy from 1985 to 2008 and led Navy SEAL operations worldwide. He is the first SEAL to be elected to congress, according to his Interior Department biography.


He also wears a cowboy hat! FUN!

Ross has been given honors by former South Korean President Kim Dae-jung and Akihito, the emperor of Japan, for his financial help with both countries, according to his biography.


Super-fun fact: Wilbur is also a fake billionaire!

Perry appeared as a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” but was eliminated in the second round.


Department of Energy. Fun Fact - Rick Perry is in-charge! Yeah, nuclear stuff!

DeVos and her husband are known for their philanthropic work – especially when it comes to education – in the state of Michigan. But the couple also produced a short-lived Broadway musical with Kathie Lee Gifford.


Outstanding! Rich, and something else!

Kelly is a Gold Star father. His son, Second Lt. Robert Kelly was killed in battle in Afghanistan in 2010.


He came, he saw, he got Trump'ed. FUN FACT: get out while you can, John.

Haspel is the first woman to lead the CIA.


Oh, c'mon, Fox - Haspel has plenty more fun facts to share with detainees.

Pruitt was the co-owner and managing partner of the Oklahoma City RedHawks, a minor league baseball team. He and his business partner sold the team, now named the Oklahoma City Dodgers, in 2010.


Also, totally, unbelievably, fun - he sued the EPA many, many times! Better put him in charge, say all!

Along with her husband Vince, McMahon co-founded WWE. The couple turned what was a regional wresting organization into a public offering worth $658.8 million in revenue in 2015, according to Rolling Stone.


Actually, she could take-on just about anything she puts her mind to, I figure.

John Kelly's "fun fact" in that article is literally just that his son is dead. I feel like that should have been the point where the writers decided that the fun fact segment was unnecessary.

If you haven't tested it yourself or at least tested the premises that lead to your conclusion there's no way you can know anything you believe is true.

I love how it's never mentioned that Betsy Devos' family made their fortune by starting Amway.

It'd be an awkward way to introduce him at a party, that's for sure.

"Hey everyone, this is Ryan Zinke, he was a SEAL commander!"

*applause*

"And this is Gina Haspel, first woman to lead the CIA!"

*applause*

"And this is John Kelly. His son is dead!"

Trump mourns for the lives "devastated" by the Russia probe. No, really. He tweeted this:

Who’s going to give back the young and beautiful lives (and others) that have been devastated and destroyed by the phony Russia Collusion Witch Hunt? They journeyed down to Washington, D.C., with stars in their eyes and wanting to help our nation...They went back home in tatters!


Who the hell is he talking about? People like Paul Manafort, Michel Flynn and George Papadopoulos?

Nothing. We'll just want someone to keep him company. This is American politics. Figuring out what we'll tell ourselves is not what we do... anywhere.

Really, I want to see the ride that will ensue when everyone goes down.
