    How is helping US sugar helping consumers? We already pay almost 3 times the world price for sugar just to prop up the american sugar industry. There are maybe 2,500 jobs in the American sugar refining refining industry that costs the rest of us billions every year through increased cost.

    Frankly, none of that stuff means jack shitski to me.
    Know what does?
    When Trump stops ALL the gd stealing, he’ll get my nod of approval and not 1 second sooner, for THAT is all I care about.

    Stop the thieving and you’ll be amazed at all the thousands of other things that instantly straighten themselves out or disappear completely.

    Sugar might seem like no big deal and maybe we should just import it all and not protect a U.S. sugar industry. Well you could say the same for everything; cars, steel, electronics, etc. Every industry. Where would you work??? I buy sugar and It is cheap. Somehow I suspect that if we imported it all from Mexico that it would never really get any cheaper and someone else would pocket the difference. IMHO we need U.S. industry and at least 50% of everything that can be made here should be made here. If that results in slightly higher costs so be it. It is worth it so that we don’t become dependent on any other country for essential goods.

    Pure luck.

    The luck of being the American President that followed Obama.

    Hey, man,
    Every year, the sugar beets are harvested and brought to the piles in trucks. Sugar beets are kind of round and some fall off here and there. In Moorhead, MN, the local Boy Scouts pick up the fallen beets and deliver them to the piles, for which they are paid the per pound price. It’s their big fund raiser for the year. And you want to stop this? Why do you hate the Boy Scouts, maaan?

    (one learns to stay well, well behind a laden sugar beet truck. Beets that fall off will bounce. Imagine a rock bigger than a softball and weighing five pounds bouncing on the road as you’re driving at 55 or so….)

    And everyone concentrates on the Soap Opera of politics – the Tweets and the “Days of Our West Wing” – instead of this stuff. I do not know whether it is good or bad, but I suspect it is good to have all of the concentration on the Middle School Popularity part and letting the important stuff slide by unremarked and unblocked.

    No to a trillion to be spent on infrastructure. Balance the budget. At some point nobody will buy our debt and we are going to look like Venezuela, but on a much grander scale. Shut off millions of people’s food stamps and see how ugly Baltimore and Chicago can really get.

    Let me know when he actually delivers on uhm, one of his campaign promises.

    You know, repealing in its hideous entirety obamacare.

    Or booting the illegal alien invaders.

    Or draining the swamp.

    Or – any of the others.

    Just like ronnie raygun – so far he’s been a fraud.

    While the big items like Obama care and budget still remain as unfinished topics, his actions taken always move toward making America great. Undoing what took Obama eight years to put in place is a daunting task.
    The sugar subsidy should be killed. As a kid, I drank my share of Coke. Back then it was produced using pure cane sugar. Now everything that was once sweetened with sugar contains only high fructose corn syrup. If you are looking for a blast from the past, purchase Mexican Coke which (of course) is made with pure cane sugar. Ahhh!

    Did Trump invent crime? Did a Democrat president allow anything and everything go unpunished or ignored for 8 years? Who is delaying action on Obamacare Repeal? Democrats and handful of Republicans wanting to preserve all the graft and benefits they gave built for themelves over the years. Who os trying to support sanctuart cities, illegal immigrants, welfare and more to illegals? Democrats. Who had made every assault on social security, amd then every election they say, Repubs want to take away your social secretary. democrats, namely LBJ, WJC, an d BO. Lbj moved it to general fund where
    it is accessible to senators, representatives, Clinton decided old folks had too much, so he 85% of their soc. Sec. As income, Obama froze their accounts for 2 for 3 years. No Republican did that ortried to. The recent years of Democrats are nothing like they claim to be. They are socialist obstructionists and so much more. With Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Dodd, Frank, Durbin and most of them, now he have Schumer, another windbag. Ghost sniper , you are lost in the smoke. And the other fellow is willing to allowfear of Baltimore and Chicago todeter any action. Tis a shame what has happened in this country during my 83 years. Technology is great, but about half our populatin hus progresse backwards as much as technoloy has goe forward.

    Recently, while I was working in my front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she’d like to be President someday. Both of her parents (Democrats), were standing there beaming, so I asked her, “If you were President what would be the first thing you’d do?” “I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people,” she replied, her parents still beaming with pride!

    “Wow, what a worthy goal!” I said, “But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that!”
    “What do you mean?” she asked. So I told her, “You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull the weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the liquor store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward booze and a new house.”

    After thinking that over for a few seconds, she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?” I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.” Her parents aren’t speaking to me anymore.

    PS to ‘ghostsniper’: try changing your tampon once in awhile, maybe you won’t be so irritable all the time. lol 😉
