    He isn't. He makes fun of him now and then, but then again, that's not too hard to do. The last debate they had, Biden stood on the stage and swore he had the support from the only black female Senator. Problem was, he was standing right next to Harris when he made that statement.

    Trump can't negotiate shit. His only approach is to try to bully. It is not working.

    Based on your other posts, yes. You seem to have no principled limits to what you want government in control of - other than your own personal preferences. ie you see government in fundamentally the same terms as liberals, as an all-purpose tool to force your will on society. Maybe I shouldn't be busting on you for it, you're no worse than them. But Republicans make a lot of noise (at least when they're not in power) about limited government. The hypocrisy gets ugly.

    Wait a minute: you mean to say that when I buy a product that may destroy property of mine, expecting government to make sure that doesn't happen is me forcing somebody to do something?

    How would you like if the restaurant you dined in all the time was found to have rats or roaches in the kitchen? How would you like if medication didn't come with literature of possible side effects like serious illness or death? When you buy food from a vendor, you expect it to be clean, don't you? Or is that forcing society to your way of thinking? When you are prescribed medication, you expect your doctor to tell you of possible serious side effects, or come with a pamphlet explaining those side effects, or is that forcing society to your way of thinking?

    It's not working yet. It could be a long war. We may win, and we may lose, but it's not going to go on forever.

    No farmer ever went out of business until 2017? Interesting.

    Yeah, I farmed because I liked shooting the eagles.

    If our economy was booming the Fed wouldn't be doing what it is doing. But I will once again note your support of Socialist government policies. In Capitalism, if oranges are eight dollars a pound, they are eight dollars a pound. No?

    Yes, and you'd be the first to complain about it too.

    So what? So what if complained? If you support something, are you not suppose to support it? If you support something, does it matter if others complain? No, it's that you and the majority of others who claim to support capitalism, do not actually support that.

    Are you actually using a Democrat's talking point list or something?

    Of course government should go after businesses that commit fraud, or sell products that harm people. What's that go to do with mandating pricing policies? Nothing.
