…trying to pick a flower.
❝ China has formally banned shrimp imports from Saudi Arabia after a batch was found with white spot syndrome virus. China quickly moved to stop the virus spreading into their country.
Shortly after the ban, China confirmed that they had granted market access to 40 Iranian companies to begin exporting shrimp…
❝ Iran is hoping that seafood exports can be a growth industry, and help the country overcome U.S. economic attacks. The country already exports 22,000 tonnes of shrimp worth around $150 million. They are planning to boost that to 60,000 tonnes.
The Saudis can just ship the diseased shrimp to the United States. Our Fake President will eat it and love it.
The same way Trump eats hot dogs, pasta, steak & shrimp = overcooked + catsup added
❝ A white woman in Mississippi who was accused of threatening an African American couple with a handgun while shouting at them to leave a KOA campground has been fined $250, and will receive a misdemeanor charge.
Only $250. A misdemeanor.
❝ Imagine if the race roles were reversed!
Mississippi “justice” ain’t changed a whole helluva lot in the last century or so.
❝ American farmers have become collateral damage in a trade war that Mr. Trump began to help manufacturers and other companies that he believes have been hurt by China’s “unfair” trade practices.
More than a year into the trade dispute, sales of American soybeans, pork, wheat and other agricultural products to China have dried up as Beijing retaliates against Mr. Trump’s tariffs on Chinese imports. Lucrative contracts that farmers long relied on for a significant source of income have evaporated, with Chinese buyers looking to other nations like Brazil and Canada to get the commodities they need. Farm bankruptcy filings in the year through June were up 13 percent from 2018 and loan delinquency rates are on the rise, according to the American Farm Bureau.
RTFA for the details. If you’ve been paying more attention than the average Republican Senator, you’ll know much of the analysis. Personally, if I was any foreign business consumer of American farm products available from other sources – I would never return to doing business with them. Especially if their politics were antithetical to my very existence.
A petition to stop the U.K. parliament from being suspended has now gathered 1,300,000+ signatures
Any petition presented to the UK Parliament with a minimum of 100,000 signatures must be considered for debate and action. Wouldn’t that be a pleasant idea to consider in the GOUSA? Our do-nothing Congress-critters might be forced into something beyond country club manners.
❝ When you’ve already separated families, thrown children in cages, and held them in conditions that “could be compared to torture facilities,” it’s a bit of a challenge to come up with your next act. Evil takes creativity, and once you’ve forced migrant kids to go weeks without a shower or change of clothes and fed them expired food, it’s tough to continue nailing those Hitler comparisons. Somehow, though, the Trump administration always rises to the occasion…
❝ Severely ill immigrants, including children with cancer, cystic fibrosis, and other grave conditions, are facing deportation under a change in Trump administration policy that immigration advocates are calling cruel and inhumane.
… The program granted stays of deportation in two-year increments and didn’t promise immigrants a future in the United States, just access to care in a time of need, said Dr. Sarah L. Kimball…Boston Medical Center…
❝ …The outrages now come with such regularity that each tends to distract from the last. But it’s important to protest not just these changes, but also their overriding intent: to remove all vestiges of compassion from the immigration system and make life as miserable as possible for immigrant families. Can this administration sink any lower than threatening to deport kids with cancer?
Once again, I see no need whatsoever to separate the fools who continue to support this thug – and the scumbag, himself. We all see what his time in office contributes to diminishing human rights, human dignity. He doesn’t care. I see no reason to believe those who support this fake president and his policies are any different.
