Beer Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

The other countries - including Canada - will have to retaliate with sanctions of their own. It won't just hurt American manufacturers by making them pay a lot more for steel and aluminum.
But home appliance maker Electrolux said it was delaying a $250 million expansion of its plant in Tennessee as it was worried U.S. steel prices would rise and make manufacturing there less competitive.
It'll also reduce their exports as the other countries are forced to retaliate with tariffs of their own.

But of course that's what any Putin-wannabe wants. A siege mentality. It gets them more support, and makes it easier to demonize thier political opponents.

We've been here before.
Great Depression

... The decline in the U.S. economy was the factor that pulled down most other countries at first; then, internal weaknesses or strengths in each country made conditions worse or better. Frantic attempts to shore up the economies of individual nations through protectionist policies, such as the 1930 U.S. Smoot–Hawley Tariff Act and retaliatory tariffs in other countries, exacerbated the collapse in global trade.
We're really gonna need cheap beer to get through this.

Miller Lite is a tab bit too refined when things get tight. Don't want to come off as pompous and out of touch with you proles, so bud lite it is.

... “We will put tariffs on Harley-Davidson, on bourbon and on blue jeans - Levi’s,” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told German television....
Harley-Davidson's HQ is in Ryan's district. :D
Bourbon is huge in Mitch McConnell's KY. :D
I'm not sure why Levi’s made the list. Their HQ is in San Francisco and very few of their products are made in the US.

I read that back when W. tried to implement steel tarrifs, the EU responded in kind with "surgically" aimed tarrifs specifically targetting swing states Bush needed to be reelected.

I keep telling folks that your not just some frilly shirt, Jheri curl, pancakes on a silver platter washed down with Miller Lite, effete snob, that you remember your Bud Light roots and are really still just 'JTA from the Block'.

Teen gets head stuck in truck's exhaust pipe, then she's cited for underage drinking, of course (with pics)

... The exhaust pipe was briefly on display at a local bar.

Ironically, the bar is called “Darwin Tavern.”

Do we need a thread for "A Minnesota Girl"? Naaa, she probably was a Florida import.
