The Adventures Of Tariffman, Cont.


More tariffs would on the way!

“President Donald Trump plans to slap punitive tariffs on about $7.5 billion worth of European aircraft, agricultural and industrial goods later this month after the United States won an important victory in a ruling before the global trade body that handles trade disputes.

“The action brings a 15-year-old case one step closer to resolution while allowing Trump to impose tariffs with the official blessing of the World Trade Organization. … Cheese and dairy products figure prominently on the retaliation of list to the delight of U.S. dairy producers who face substantial sales barriers in the EU.

“Imports of single-malt Scotch, Irish whiskey, liqueurs, French wines, sweaters, coffee, pipe cutters, various tools, sweet biscuits, olives and pork will also be slapped with 25 percent duties.”

And it won’t bother his vile wines to have less competition, and we know his cheese board consisted of Velveta, aerosol cheese, and individually wrapped Kraft Singles. You have between now and Oct. 18 to hoard, BTW.

But you know, it’s all cool because the stock market crashed again, which is of course the Democrats fault:

So we got that working for us, too.

    Perhaps this would be a good time to mention the Tao te Ching.

    Lai Tzu wrote that the best leaders value their words, and use them sparingly.

    I suspect that Lao Tzu is still as popular in China as Sun Tzu is in the west.
