ROFL...You cite Alex Jones and Trump for your point of reference and you dismiss my real life experiences as anecdotal? ROFL

I do.

Because you are the living instance of an anecdote.

And you still refuse to concede that you misrepresented my citation on Arcelor-Metal employment in the US.

What steel industry? You don't know what the fuck you're talking about you idiotic muppet.

Again:

http://www.thecommentator.com/article/3509/the_truth_about_thatcher_and_the_steel_industry

And it wasn't long before Steel broke out the Big Lie: "in 1980 Margaret Thatcher’s government shut down most of the steel industry, as part of her plan to break the unions". You hear this argument a lot, as though repeating it will make it true. But a look at the facts shows that it isn’t.

In 1955 the British steel industry was working at 98 percent of capacity. But, over the following years, this declined as a result of its failure to adopt new methods (such as the basic oxygen steel-making process and continuous casting) and increased steel production in other countries. By 1966 just 79 percent of capacity was being utilised.

The following year a large chunk of the British steel industry was renationalised (it had been nationalised for a few years in the early 1950s). In 1970 the new British Steel had a record output of 23.8 million tonnes (4.7 percent of the world total, down from 25 percent in 1929).

But the industry was now being run for political rather than economic ends and massive over-manning and consequent low productivity became endemic. By 1977 output had actually fallen to 20 million tonnes (3 percent of the world total). By 1978 British Steel was operating at just two-thirds capacity. And by 1979, British steel workers were a third less productive than their French competitors and 40 percent less productive than West German steel workers.

In the fiscal year 1978-1979 British Steel lost £309 million. This rose to £545 million the following year, one in which workers struck for six weeks for a 20 percent pay rise. They got it, but my dad, who worked in a steel works in Sheffield at the time, said that by the time they went back to work their foreign customers had gone elsewhere.

In 1980-1981, British Steel lost a staggering £1 billion on turnover of £3 billion, earning itself a place in the Guinness Book of Records. By contrast the output of Britain's small private sector steel industry doubled between 1967 and 1979, from 3 million tonnes to 6 million tonnes.

Between 1967 and 1974 employment in the British steel industry fell from 250,000 to 197,000. And by 1990 it had fallen again by 74 percent to 51,000. But other developed countries also saw drastic declines in employment in their steel industries in the same period. In France, for example, employment fell by 70 percent, while in the United States it fell by 60 percent. Even Germany lost 46 percent of its steel workforce.

What happened to towns like Sheffield or Corby was not part of some Thatcherite vendetta and instead was part of a general trend across the industrialised world. It happened in the Rhur Valley and Ohio, was Maggie Thatcher responsible for that too?

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/industry/engineering/11941457/Margaret-Thatcher-would-never-have-let-the-steel-industry-collapse.html

British Steel, as it was then, was competing with foreign companies, some that were nationalised and subsidised. If the Government had acted as if it were in a free market it would have had to let British Steel go under. Instead, it gave state aid to allow the firm to get back to fighting fitness.

Perhaps Theresa May should suggest that the USAF and Navy withdraw their squadrons and fleets from the airbases and sub bases used in the British Isles if the UK is such a security risk? It would only seem appropriate...And while they're at it, close Menwith Hill and Fylingdales to US military personnel. The other 'security risk' countries could follow suit and politely but firmly tell Trump that obviously US forces would be much safer and secure either back in the US or maybe none NATO countries.

There's a point to be made that libertarian stances oft times diverge from classic left-right definitives.

Their veneration of a totally unfettered market and no one being "compelled" to do anything by the state leads them to promote prostitution and user fee based roads while supporting gun rights too.

Your point? You think she's less qualified to state the facts of steel output and the economics within than Trump who has no academic or industrial qualifications in either?

Oh I see!!! It's because she attended French universities? Is the premise that she is less qualified because they're French?

Shoot the messenger isn't quite as amusing when I wing one of yours, now is it?

Tee hee! ;D

Also, she's so very wrong when she says:

"China was the 10th largest supplier of steel to the U.S. market in 2017 and 94 percent of China’s steel exports were actually subjected to special tariffs (so tariffs are not that great at changing the country’s behavior, I guess)."

When China buys up Vietnamese steel mills to dump product on us they are not being counted accurately.

https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-world-s-top-iron-and-steel-importers.html

Top Countries by Iron and Steel Imports
Standing at first place in this list is the United States, with its iron and steel imports in 2014 valued at an astounding $49 billion USD.

http://www.americanmanufacturing.org/blog/entry/american-steelmakers-say-china-is-dodging-tariffs-by-sending-steel-through

U.S. steelmakers say Chinese steel companies are purposely avoiding U.S. import tariffs by routing their shipments through Vietnam – and they want the Commerce Department to take action to stop it.

he Commerce Department repeatedly has found that China is dumping its steel into the U.S. market, and has issued several sets of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on steel imports from China. But these new cases move the issue into new territory.

And as the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, the American steel companies appear to have a pretty strong case:

"Independent trade data appear to lend credence to the steelmaker claims. In the first six months of 2016, shipments of steel from Vietnam to the U.S. increased to 312,329 tons, from 25,756 tons. Over the same period, Chinese exports of steel to Vietnam rose 46% to 6.3 million tons from 4.3 million tons, according to data firm Global Trade Information Services."


And when China floods the market they depress prices.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2018/03/06/steel-imports-threaten-national-security-editorials-debates/32667473/

National security is only as strong as American steel: It depends on the domestic industry’s ability to manufacture steel from start to finish. A weaker or non-existent American steel industry leaves our nation dependent on countries focused on their economic interests and well-being, not ours. That leaves our country vulnerable, which is not a position the United States should ever be willing to accept.

America has the capacity to melt and pour the steel it needs for national defense; to build its infrastructure; to produce and transport energy and electricity; and to supply manufacturers of automobiles, machinery, appliances and other consumer and industrial goods, from tin cans to bulldozers.

For decades, foreign steel producers have targeted our open market with a flood of imports. While our domestic capability has remained stagnant since 2001, global excess steel capacity amounts to more than 700 million metric tons — more than six times the U.S. steel market. Unfair and illegal practices have left the U.S. steel industry too close to the brink. Tens of thousands of jobs have been lost, and thousands more are at risk.

This is why President Trump has committed to begin to level the playing field on steel imports: for the security and manufacturing strength of the United States.

While no one can predict tomorrow’s threats, the geopolitical climate will remain complex and uncertain. When we let foreign producers seize the lead in manufacturing for the sake of short-term wins, we risk surrendering America’s long-term future. President Trump’s strong action on steel imports recognizes that America cannot afford to outsource an industry as vital to security as steel.

David B. Burritt is the president and CEO of U. S. Steel.

https://www.lmtonline.com/news/article/Trump-floats-end-to-all-tariffs-threatens-major-12981080.php

QUEBEC CITY - President Donald Trump told foreign leaders at the Group of Seven summit that they must dramatically reduce trade barriers with the United States or they would risk losing access to the world's largest economy, delivering his most defiant trade threat yet to his counterparts from around the globe.

Trump, in a news conference before leaving for Singapore, described private conversations he held over two days with the leaders of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada. He said he pushed them to consider removing every single tariff or trade barrier on American goods, and in return he would do the same. But if steps aren't taken, he said, the penalties would be severe.

"We're the piggy bank that everybody is robbing," Trump said. "And that ends."

Trump's pitch that world leaders eliminate all tariffs - or else - was his latest attempt to reorder the global trading system, which he says is stacked unfairly against the United States.

For example, on Friday evening, the White House issued a statement saying Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were very close to a deal to rework the North American Free Trade Agreement.

But during his comments on Saturday morning, Trump said there were still a number of different ways the NAFTA talks could play out, including the possibility of doing separate deals with Mexico and Canada, effectively cleaving the 20-year agreement in two.

You know don't you that Trump has sold you a bum steer? He's given you the impression that steel has been declining in the US only because China has been making it cheaper...Nope.

Not only making it cheaper, and they have for at least the past ten years, but also dumping product from lower cost plants around the world:

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/china-steel-now-as-cheap-as-cabbage-weighing-on-global-price-2014-10-13

The average price for the range of steel products on offer has fallen to 3,212 yuan ($520) per metric ton for the first half of the year, down 28% from the average price in 2012, CISA data showed.

“Sharply slowing steel demand growth in an oversupplied sector is the key reason for China’s currently low steel prices,” CIMB analysts said in a recent note.

Standard & Poor’s also cited Chinese oversupply as the largest headache for steel makers in the rest of Asia, and is likely to remain so.

http://www.industryweek.com/environment/viewpoint-why-china-cheaper

Above all, there is the ever-present currency manipulation, where China undervalues their currency by an estimated 30%-40%, which simply makes every product that China ships out 30-40% cheaper than those of a potential American competitor.

Finally, China has a national strategy of what is called "dumping." "Dumping" is defined as the act of a manufacturer in one country exporting a product to another country at a price that is either below the price it charges in its home market or is below its cost of production. The goal of "dumping" is to capture the market or destroy the competition for a particular product or commodity so the price to the end user or consumer is lowered way below the competition, often below cost. "Dumping" is one of the strategies China uses as a neomercantilist country. Neomercantilism is a term used to describe a policy which encourages exports, discourages imports, controls capital movement and centralizes currency decisions in the hands of a central government.

The U.S. is slapping heavy taxes on steel imports from Vietnam, saying China is using the country as a way to dodge earlier penalties.
Certain steel products Vietnam is selling to the U.S. are being produced from Chinese materials, the U.S. Department of Commerce said in a statement late Tuesday.
American steelmakers complained last year that Chinese companies appeared to be avoiding huge tariffs by diverting products to Vietnam for "minor processing" before they were shipped to the U.S.

I have little hope that I'll ever read anything original from you and I think you're fine with that, even proud of it.

Sad.

I bet there are a lot of Zardoz fans out here, men and women both, kind of on the down low about it.
It’s by John Boorman!  There’s Charlotte Rampling, and  Talking Rings of the Future! (or was that The Time Machine?)

Mmm...Charlotte Rampling...yesss...  :P



Anything more than a mouthfull's wasted... ;)

Boorman is one of my favorite living filmmakers.    Excalibur is probably my favorite film of his. Emerald Forest, Deliverance, Point Blank and Hell In the Pacific are all great.  Wish he made more films.  I think Exorcist 2: The Heretic was taken away from him and messed with so I'm sure his cut of the film would have been better.

You have great taste, didn't he also do "Hope and Glory" about London during the Blitz?

Hell in the Pacific = a classic!

Zardoz!   A guilty movie pleasure for me.   It is almost brilliant, yet preposterous and hysterical.  Is it profound?  Do I care?  No; but I love it, and own the dvd.  Sean Connery made bald beautiful.  Early adopter of the manly ponytail, as well.

So, great avatar! 
If you haven’t done so already, please post your review of Zardoz.  That would be a fun read for many, I’m thinking.

I have to ditto your post, a real unappreciated camp classic, the male Barbarella?

Love the big floating head and lots of guns!

 ;D

DITTO!  :(

This is so wrong.  It makes me sick.  Children do not need to be influenced by these people.  There is enough doubt in ourselves and confusion growing up.  Nothing like indoctrinating little kids with this shit.   >:(

You got it.

Let them find their own paths in a natural and normal way, if they're gender bent from the factory it'll show up without any freak show encouragement and grooming.

What kind of parents would take small children, even older children to such an event?

Tatt'd up druggies most likely...

"Honey, what do you want to do with the kids today? Take them to the park, maybe?"

 "I've got a better idea- I've heard there is a cross-dressing homosexual who is going to be dressing up like a Satanic demon and reading gender-bending and 'my two dad' books to children at the local library!"

"That's sounds like a fun time for our preschoolers! They love scary demons and could also learn a lot about sex and gender issues!

GUFFAW!

If it had been anyone else, she would have been in prison by the time the elections rolled around.  His back and forth is obviously something that needs to be explained to the American people.  Funny how the fake news media isn't much interested in this either.

Another anomaly is when Trump fired him, it was the Ds calling for his head - for the very reason you stated.  Odd that they flipped the narrative the instant he was fired and tried to then make him a saint.

+1!

Now that's a sound memory .

Well if Comey was an instrument of the 'deep state' to get Clinton elected, they either didn't word the memo correctly or he misread it. Because as far as foot shooting is concerned, he did a pretty good job if the intention was to get her in as POTUS.  ;D

So he came to a point where he felt the flames licking his career and decided to save his own ass, duh.

He sure didn't toss Loretta Lynch and Obozo out on the tarmac...

That will explain why Comey said what he said before the election that took the wind out of Clinton's sails.. To get Clinton elected..  ;D

He didn't take any wind out of her sails, that was all her dragon lady persona that undid her.

Quote
Trump said it was rigged remember. Only he missed out that it was rigged to get him elected.

By whom and for what?

Comey sure had no respect for him, nor did the rest of the deep staters.

Try again.

It looks like the rust belt 'rigged' an election by showing up to VOTE Republican!
