Re: yeah the economy is great Rick

Number 1.......I have never said the economy was anything but troubled right now.

Number 2.......you forgot to read the whole article......again.

Quote:
President Barack Obama and lawmakers from both political parties say the U.S. economic recovery is being hampered by a Chinese currency that is too weak. The House of Representatives voted 348-79 yesterday for a measure that would let domestic companies petition for duties on imports from China to compensate for the effect of a weak yuan. Democrats were joined by 99 of the 178 Republicans on the vote.

“It’s obvious the U.S. needs a weaker dollar to achieve its goals” such as boosting exports, said Toshiya Yamauchi, a senior foreign-exchange analyst at the online currency-trading company Ueda Harlow Ltd. in Tokyo. “The U.S. will continue to mount pressure on China because it can’t afford to wait any longer.”
You do understand that a weak dollar has its upside....right?

It increases demands for exports, which correlates to an increase in GDP.

That's why we're screaming that the Yen is too low.

They are the ones benefiting from increased demand.

It increases demands for our exports, which correlates to an increase in GDP.

Re: yeah the economy is great Rick

You know damn well what I meant Rick. I didnt think I had to draw you a picture for everything.



Are you denying that there is a trade deficit between the US and other countries now?

No Dave, I don't know what you "mean."

I can only go on what you "say."

You said.......... "outside of ag products, there isn't much we export any more."

You were wrong.

Just man up and say it.

As I've said before.

You would make a great politician.

When proved wrong....you totally change the subject.

As to your question...........what do you mean "now?"

Do you have any clue as to how long we have had a 'trade deficit?'

Here, once again I'll help you out.

US Trade Deficit (click here)

Quote:
A trade deficit with one country or in one year is not necessarily worrisome, and according to standard economic theory, will correct itself over time.

But the theory has been proved wrong over the last 30 years as the United States has run consistent and increasing trade deficits.

Re: yeah the economy is great Rick

No Rick I wasnt wrong like I said I didnt realize I had to turn everything into a paint by numbers picture for you.

Did I say we dont export anything besides ag products? No I didnt.

I said we dont export much besides ag products. In reality we dont

And as to what I mean by now.

I mean the trade deficit has gotten far worse



Anyone else here wouldve been able to figure out what I meant why cant you

You don't Dave.

You just have to start with telling the truth and know what you're talking about.

I realize it might be tough, but I think you can do it.


Quote:

No, what you said is...."outside of ag products, there isn't much we export any more."

And you still won't admit that your statement is dead wrong?


Quote:

I think everyone else can figure out that less than 5%, doesn't equate to...... "much besides."



Quote:

I think most everyone else here has pretty much figured out by now Dave, that you like to throw things out (without proof) as if you know what you're talking about...........when you really don't.

Re: yeah the economy is great Rick

I think everyone has you figured out Rick all you do is sidestep your way out of #### by making bull#### arguments

Just like you are doing now

Facts are facts Ag products including equipment as even your graph shows are the majority of US exports

Fact is if you dont like someones argument you sidestep your way around it. Just like you are doing now.

Fact is most people here have either seen the things I throw out or know about them.

We dont all live in the sheltered little union world you do

Sidestep?

Me?

I have slapped you down and shown you for the liar you are, with proof......time after time.

And all you can do is keep trying to wriggle out of it and change the subject.

You aren't even man enough to admit it, when proven wrong.



Quote:

And you can't even read a graph!

Even if you assume (which is incorrect) that ALL 'Transportation Equipment' is ag related....it still only adds up to about 20%

Now how do you get that as being.............most?

No Dave, you are the one who continually falls woefully short in your arguments.

You refuse to even provide a modicum of proof and then expect everyone else to believe you.



Quote:

And then after being beaten, you like to throw out more lies in the hope you can garner some type of support from those who may not bother to delve deeper into the facts.

Sorry Dave, there are too many good people around here, that present cogent arguments with at least some type of proof......for me to waste any more time with you.

I think you're an OK guy, but life is too short to constantly deal with a personality like yourself.

You're back on ignore.

You're special in one respect though..........you're the only one.
