What About Exports?

I listen carefully to the speeches of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Both are furious at the loss of “millions of high paying jobs to China.” Their assumption is the reason for decline of certain factory jobs is because business is taking their production to Asia, particularly, the evil China. Just think, we now produce clothes, shoes, assembly of computers and other such “high paying jobs” elsewhere but in America. For some reason, neither Sanders nor Trump ever mention the word, EXPORT.

In June this year, the United States EXPORTED $183 billion in goods to other nations. We IMPORTED, $227 billion from other countries. To simplify, if we ended import of goods from overseas, we might add about 4,000,000 jobs. Of course, since other nations would raise tariffs on our  goods, we might lose 3,000,000 jobs.

Shouting and screaming to rip up  trade deals gets the applause of millions. Unfortunately, if we do as Trump and Sanders urge, there might be millions of jobs lost by Americans. And,many of them would be high paying jobs!

Hiroshima Apology?

President Obama will soon be visiting Japan and plans to visit Hiroshima, the scene of the world’s first atomic bomb. Many in America insist the president should apologize for the horror of atomic weapons being used. Most probably, I am in the minority who believe the atomic bomb HAD to be  used to save the lives of millions. And, I mean, millions of innocent Japanese civilians.

Background: During its invasion of China from 1937–1945, the Japanese army raped hundreds of thousands and killed over five million–civilians, that is. The code of the Japanese army was to never surrender and any enemy who did, frequently was killed. After the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, the Japanese Cabinet me. During this meeting the head of the Japanese Army insisted that to surrender meant loss of face and dishonor to the Emperor. He boasted the Japanese army would meet American and British soldiers on the beaches and destroy them.

After the Emperor made known that he was ready to surrender, units of the Japanese army attempted to kill the brother of the Emperor who was carrying a record of the surrender. They did not succeed. In other words, without dropping of the atomic bomb, millions of Japanese would have been killed. Sorry, this IS history. There is no need to apologize. Perhaps, any Japanese leaders from WWII still alive might apologize!

Whee Are The Jobs?

Donald  Trump, Bernie Sanders and millions of Americans blame the economic decline and loss of good paying jobs to China or Mexico or some other place in the world. Recent figures indicate the fastest growing jobs in America over the coming decades will  pay workers about $25,000 a year. That means they are paying workers about $13 an hour. A high  percent of these jobs are in some aspect of the health field.Three-fourths of these fast growing jobs pay less than $35,000  a year. Yet, Bernie Sanders insists that if we bring back jobs from China the result will be “13,000,00 high paying jobs.”

On one hand Bernie  Sanders attacks selfish wealthy people, and on the other hand, he insists they will  pay high wages. Let me inform the good Senator that for those with wealth, the solution is more and more technology and less and less human labor. Sorry, Bernie, they will NOT be offering high wage jobs. So,where does that leave the demand for higher wages?

I will address this issue in the coming weeks. However, there is one certainty, high paying jobs will not be coming back from China nor Mexico!

So, Who Wrote The Letter?

The entire government of China is now in an uproar over 920 words that were published online. The message was directed to President Xi Jinxing. “It is a real threat comrade Xi Jinping. We feel that you do not possess the capabilities to lead the party or the nation into the future. For the party’s cause, for the long term peace and stability of  the country and your own personal safety  and that of your family, we ask that you resign your position as President.”
Wow!  Just think that in a nation of over a billion people there are some who are not pleased with the president! Wow!

The entire Security apparatus of the nation is now seeking to uncover the criminal who wrote such dangerous words. Just imagine the ruler of among the most powerful nations in the world is all shook up by 920 words! This guy makes Donald Trump come across as calm, cool, collected guy.

Letter From An Unknown Writer

President Xi Jinping of China is very upset. There are things that one does not do in the Communist nation of China, and one of them is to write letters accusing the head honcho of China of failing to respect democracy in his own nation. This anonymous letter has resulted in massive searches and imprisonment of people as China’s security apparatus seeks to uncover this threat to the  very existence of China’s society and government. As of this moment, no one has come forth admitting to this dastardly crime against humanity. In a spirit of fairness to our Chinese readers we offer some possibilities:

1. One might check all those in China who are capable of writing a letter.

2. Donald Trump is a likely candidate, after all, he already has threatened to wipe out Xi Jinping once they are in a room together negotiating.

3. Ted Cruz who believes that anything Donald can do, he can do better. After all, he did go to Harvard and did learn how to write letters. Of course, he never took a science course and that is why he always makes certain people know,”I am not a scientist.”

4.Of course,the President should be happy it is a letter and not a letter bomb from ISIS.

If this is the concern over a letter,what do these security guys do with a book!

How The World Views Donald Trump?

Secretary of State John Kerry is concerned at the image of America being conveyed by the Trump quest for publicity–getting to become president.

France: Would you consider heading the National Front which seeks to send Muslims back to where they came from? Of course, we doubt that many French women would consider you to be a seducer with words of love and tenderness.

Germany: Herr, Donald, we regret that you were not around when the guy who shouted even louder than you knew how to handle inferior creatures of life. What a wonderful head of the SS you would have made!

Russia: Vladimir Putin wants to meet you man-to-man in a wrestling contest. Winner takes all- Putin wins, he is the candidate for president. If Ted born in Canada can run, why not a guy from Russia!

ISIS Land. Donald, we have to admit when it comes to bullshitting, you are the number one leader in the world. We will trade you one carpet bombing for a bomb anywhere in Texas.

China. Mr. Trump we are willing to offer you as many exports to China as you desire–tariff free. Of course, the goods will  have to be made in Vietnam, you know, the place where John McCain lived in the Hotel Hanoi while real patriots were fighting the Viet Cong.

Cuba: Donald, we are not Mexican peasants seeking to head for the USA. We offer you an entire country in which Spanish speaking people would welcome your Great,Great, Business ideas and keep them at home.

Drop Dead Donald!

Who would have believed six months ago the new year would dawn with Donald Trump as the possible presidential candidate for the Republican party? Then again, who would have predicted that Ben Carson, the kind of guy you talk to while waiting for the bus to come, would ever have been considered a possible president of the United States. So, here goes with the Donald Trump plan to solve everything”

1. Donald will bomb ISIS in Syria. Of course, ISIS IS being bombed in Syria, but the Trump bombing includes dropping dollar bills from Donald only  to be used in American business establishments.

2. Donald will raise tariffs on Chinese goods. Of course, that means China raises tariffs on American goods. So, Donald will explain to a few million Americans they are giving up their jobs to help him get elected.

3. Donald will build the highest and longest wall in the history of humankind. This will prove to China the US is ann exceptional country  and end tourist visits to the Chinese great wall.

4. Donald will build a wall all along the Canadian border to prevent Ted Cruz characters from entering our great land.

5. Donald will deport any illegal immigrants so we Americans can just give up eating fruits. Oh, and the garbage, since Americans will lose jobs since we can’t export of China, and the immigrants are gone– off to the garbage trucks and fields of fruit!

Rand Paul Is Bored

Imagine being compelled to stand at the end of a line of ranting and raging men and a woman, who endlessly promise they have a  “great plan” that will end unemployment,  end the evil of taxation, end poverty and ensure those with wealth do not have to pay another cent in higher taxes? Of course, along the way,this group also has a “great idea” on how to wipe out ISIS.

Senator Rand Paul is not really a member of the group of eight. He expressed his fatigue with the mumbling of Ben Carson, with Senator Marco Rubio who no one recalls the last time  he actually voted for anything in the  Senate, with Jeb Bush for his awkwardness, and he still does not  understand why Donald Trump, after insulting everyone, winds up  “giving us gifts of ties made in China, very weird.”

I assume Donald will shortly produce these ties so one and all can get one.

Xi Jinping For Freedom

Xi Jinping is President of China and ordinarily he devotes his office to the task of sending people off to camps in northern regions of the country for a few years of re-education. Therefore it was quite shocking to hear him defend the right of freedom of speech. “As in the real world, freedom and order are both necessary in cyberspace. We should respect in internet users their right to  exchange ideas and express their minds.”

Fantastic statement of freedom of speech. Even as he uttered these words, Pu Zhiquiang, fighter for freedom of speech on the Internet was on trial for expressing his ideas on the Internet. Perhaps,Xi just has a different understanding as to the meaning of “exchange of ideas.”

He Trumps Them All

Donald Trump is very clear about one point–he knows how to make deals, Not only does he know how to make deals, he understands how to make a Great Deal, one that will clean out any opponent and make them admit they are stupid and they will do whatever Donald desires. Donald spent considerable time and energy discussing the new trade deal which President Obama is negotiating with Asian nations. Donald made clear this is one stupid deal which will allow China to rob us blind. He went on and on about how the deal was one that China would love because it would allow China to take more and more of our jobs.China cheats the US and this deal would enable China to cheat some more.

At this point, a moderator noted: “But, Mr.Trump, China is not part of the deal.” Well, the Donald man was quick to respond. He made clear that what he has just been talking about made clear that China was not part of the deal.From that point on, he wanted the audience to know that he knows how to make Great Deals and he will not allow China to beat us in any deal.

Who else but the Great Mouth could get away with this one. Naturally, the audience loved his denunciation of a deal that did not involve China. Only in the Republican party with its Republican idiots.
