So much winning! 

OrdinaryGuy --- 20 days ago -

You forgot to list the other reasons for the price hikes.....such as: rising freight costs, increased metal costs, rising labor costs, etc.

Just like the left to give only half truths.

Ultimately

is all that matters!

Ultimately the U.S. will be the winner in finally establishing FAIR trade with other nations.

Gobernmental (artificial) control of fair trade (economics) is not in our best interest.

More Trump winning = More liberal losing. 

DatBoyHooD --- 19 days ago -

Liberal logic tariffs raise prices but doubling the minimum wage will not 

fuzz81 --- 19 days ago -

So that price hike is better off in the governments pocket, or the worker?

Actually, rising labor costs (higher wages) are one of the reasons coke raised their prices. So your argument doesn't hold water. 

fuzz81 --- 18 days ago -

From their CEO:

?The tariffs on the metals, it?s one of many factors [that] caused us to go out in the middle of the year and announce the price increase, which is pretty unusual.? Most directly, Quincey was referring to a 10% tariff on aluminum imported from the E.U., Canada, and Mexico, enacted alongside a 25% tariff on steel imports. 

sdanielmcev --- 18 days ago -

So, is their CEO going to take a pay cut?

Why should he? 

sdanielmcev --- 17 days ago -


Why should he??


Sarcasm

The US will never be a significant aluminum producer. There?s little bauxite to be mined in the US. The US depends on global imports. The tariffs are nothing more than a tax on yourselves.

Looks like I'll be holding off on purchasing new bulldozers till things settle down. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 16 days ago -

So, fuzzball, what you are hoping for is that Pres Trump fails and in turn the US fails. Is that right?

Be glad there aren't new tariffs on rosewood.

No answer from fuzzball...that's normal! He can dish it out but can't take it! 

jackass --- 14 days ago -

Name calling...so pathetic. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 14 days ago -

Name calling...so pathetic.?

In response to what I've been called.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA........ 

Jekyll and Hyde --- 14 days ago -

Is that coke as in the drink or coke as in "blow?"

Haha 

OrdinaryGuy --- 14 days ago -

Cokes have 10 teaspoons of sugar in them. They are the largest single source of sugar the American public gets. Drinking less cokes would be a good thing for the public. 

fuzz81 --- 14 days ago -

How does criticizing the president equate to wanting the US to fail? Of course I don?t want that. That?s why I criticize trump. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 13 days ago -

No, you just want the President to fail. I guess you can't stand to see the economy do so well or the unemployment be so low. You always look for the smallest detail of what he does wrong. Obviously you don't like him because you didn't complain when Obama weaponized the IRS or spied on US citizens. It seems to me that you have a double standard...one for the democrats and one for the Republicans. In my opinion that isn't right.

Way off subject!

I have little to very little hope that Americans will give anything up in relation to tariffs. They won't even read the back of packaging to see where something came from to try to support our fellow Americans and God forbid they forgo an entire type of product.

I once posted a list of American made goods on a forum and suggested maybe we start getting serious about supporting American manufacturers and people joked and said, You don't actually believe in that do you?!" This was about 10 years ago when I noticed you almost couldn't find a single toy in the toy section made in America.

A country of snowflakes we have become; our parents and grandparents that saved zip ties and plastic bags and eschewed debt like it was poison should slap us all. Well... most of us anyway. :)

Maybe when the trade barriers (tariffs on US products) are lowered and then we lower ours, toy mfgs may come back. Who knows? Other companies are coming back.
