What is the "goal" of these people? I'm guessing butt hurt ex-dreamer that can't get a job or, worse yet, get hands on our tax money. Boo HOO. Sell ice cream with a cart if you can't work legally. Good luck with that. Watch out for ICE.

Please move to CA, it's like a roach trap now. So many promises for free crap. I'm leaving when the roach trap is full.
if we could get these people into fast food jobs and out of their parents basement their lives would be better. Can you imagine the disappointment the poor parents endure?

This whole episode was a joke. I don’t know how anyone took it seriously.

The corporations let their Republican lackeys in Congress know in no uncertain terms that they’d BETTER put a stop to Trump’s tariffs or else. And you can best believe that Mitch McConnell let Trump know through back channels that the tariff wasn’t gonna fly, and the Senate and House were gonna put a stop to it by any means necessary.

Mexico most definitely knew it too...they know more about American domestic politics than Americans do. And they’re smart enough to know that our government is bought and paid for by the corporatocracy. Our government will run afoul of a lot of entities, but they don’t stand a chance against Big Business. Not if they want to stay in office...and they ALL do.

Mexico never had anything to fear from Trump. If I know he’s a blowhard, they know it even moreso. They’re just trying to help him save face.

Personally, I’m for the tariff, but not for Trump’s dumb reasons.

I had to look that up, it sounded so accurate, and found a good link on it !!!

Oikophobia on the rise after Trump win
https://www.usatoday.com/story/opini...lumn/96413412/

Democratic operatives are scared of plumbers

When it was all over, Resnikoff reported that he was “rattled” at the thought that a Trump supporter might have been in his home. “I couldn’t shake the sense of potential danger.”


Roger Scruton coined the term “oikophobia” (from the Greed oikos for “home”) to describe the fear of one’s fellow countrymen. And there seems to be rather a lot of it among the gentry liberals who make up America’s ruling class.

Who are you kiddng? Mexico is so capitalist that it puts the United States to shame. You right wingers can only DREAM that the U.S. could be as capitalist as Mexico.

Lol...Mexico is the Republican Shangri-La. A virtual right wing paradise. You really donít know what youíre talking about calling Mexico a socialist country. Youíve obviously never been there or have a clue about the place. Every time I drive down, I think about how proud the American Right would be if our country could only be like Mexico.

Mexico has legal prostitution, universal healthcare, dirt cheap college tuition... the whitest Mexicans live in fortified compounds and control all of the wealth, besides the cheap college nothing about it sounds right wing.

Also, can't forget, Mexico City drains the rest of Mexico, literally a huge plantation country where one city controls everything.

Lol...conservatives are probably the biggest patrons of prostitution. Universal healthcare? Every other nation on Earth that has citizens with a brain has that. Thatís not some anomaly. Nations with universal healthcare that elect far right wackos into power KEEP universal healthcare intact. So I donít even know why you mentioned that. Thatís just a painful reminder of how stupid WE are.

And since when is cheap college tuition a right wing idea? Please...you guys seem to be all too happy to make kids pay thru the nose for college. You even got upset at the billionaire for promising to pay off college debt of those black students at Morehouse University.

No, Mexico is a Republican right wing paradise for many OTHER reasons that you failed to address except for wealthy people living in sealed off compounds. And really, thatís not universally true either.

Maybe you should find a clue.

This fool has a 30% approval rating. He is a one and done PM. I actually laughed when they elected him after how his father screwed Canada up. Name recognition and a new generation, just like Brown in California. Fools electing fools.
Trump is in the 30% half the time. I would call that a defense of your President, crapping on his 30% brothers.

Mexico is the left's wet dream. Cheap is relative to our perspective, for the majority of Mexicans it isn't cheap because they're all dirt poor.

Yeah well, I fail to see the difference. The clowns we sent to Washington habitually drains this country too. Like that $6 Trillion theyíve pyssed away in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.

At least Mexico isnít stupid enough to do that!
