Holy shit, what a woofer. I would have thought Junior could do better anyway, unless mannishness is his thing.


Eh, the source is pretty no-name so I'll hold my thoughts until it actually happens.

Apparently Trump's negotiation strategy is to assume the other guy is better and demand more.

And his minion going "Wow, sir, you're so smart, you were right if we only count Timber and Energy."

Trump already knew that the US has trade deficits with almost all countries.

Like appearance means anything when you're rich. Do you think Melania is with Sr because of his looks?  ???

I don't think any of Trump's wives have been attractive though.

I think the really hot gold diggers tend to go for athletes, musicians, actors, or just... attractive rich people. Vanessa isn't ugly, Junior should consider himself lucky for even getting her.

Hey now, don't assume she's so vain. It could be his personality.

I stand corrected.
We have an 18 Billion Goods deficit with Canada.

https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/balance/c1220.html

Roughly.

But all that means is that we import more Canadian goods than we export American goods.  Like Timber (Canada has a lot more than America) and Oil (Cause we buy everyone's oil).

But apparently the CB doesn't include services.
Fortunately the Office of the United States Trade Representative does...

https://ustr.gov/countries-regions/americas/canada#

So yes, surplus, just not in goods alone.

Tom knows the deepest thoughts of POTUS.
Technically the explanation for why the sun sets at higher altitudes is also "waves," and whatnot.

Quote from: Donald Trump
We do have a Trade Deficit with Canada, as we do with almost all countries (some of them massive). P.M. Justin Trudeau of Canada, a very good guy, doesn’t like saying that Canada has a Surplus vs. the U.S.(negotiating), but they do...they almost all do...and that’s how I know!

He will fire his national security guy but doesn't wanna do it harshly cause it's a general so he's gonna do it slowly, properly.

You know, the opposite of how he's been firing people so far.

Everything from secret e-mail clients to the offloading of stuff.
Even the candidate being a puppet and "Crooked Hillary" being invtented by them.

Not sure I understand the controversy. Data mining and demographic targeting on social media? Is this not something that people have been exploiting for personal use since the introduction of social media? Maybe I'm missing something but I just don't get why in this particular case it's so egregious (apart from the Trump hate of course).

It was the whole "We gave you a survey, then data mined your friends profiles even though we had no permission from them and facebook totally let us.".

Like if you took a survey asking your views on certain things, they could then get all the info on everyone from your friends list.  So instead of 270,000 profiles, they got 50 million profiles.

And is that illegal or unethical for any reason? How is it different from the myriad other ways politicians collect and use information to try to influence an election besides perhaps scale, which shouldn't make a difference?

If you're on Facebook your info is out there and people are going to exploit it. I still don't see where anything wrong was done here.

Yes, it's completely and utterly illegal given that Cambridge Analytica operated from, well, Cambridge - that makes them liable to the Data Protection Act 1998 (and soon the GDPR). British data protection regulations are quite tight, and not quite as "oh, haha, businesses can do whatever :) :) :)" as the US. They broke the law the moment they exported data abroad without explicit permission, doubly so when they used it for reasons other than those originally provided to data providers (i.e. actual human beings)

If they wanted to take the US approach of "haha if you put it on the Internet then we can literally buttfuck you without asking" approach, they should have run their business from the US.
