1. Florida lobster season starts soon.

Fisherman are complaining because 75% of their business is exported to China, which now has a retaliatory tariff.

7. And Maine soon. Will be devestating, it benefit Canada enourmously.

Potentially making matters worse for U.S. dealers is that they might not benefit from elimination of the existing 20 percent and 25 percent lobster tariffs that China had planned to roll back at the end of the month. If the new tariff is implemented, and the old tariff remains on U.S. lobster but is rolled back for Canada, Maine lobstermen will be at a 45 percent price disadvantage with Canada on the very same product, Tselikis said.

On the other hand all that excess lobster means good cheap eats for me,...LOVE lobster.

8. I don't understand. I was looking at the markets a couple hours ago, and though fb took

A historic market loss today, the markets were down but ended up. With trade wars, rising interest rates, trillion dollar deficit and more.how can this be. The tw seems not to have hit the markets at all. IMO itís shennigans with some manipulation sprinkled in.

11. Lurching around, staggering from one self-induced craptastic f*ck up and disaster

to another. To another, etc.

Typical repug president. He took apart the air conditioner, broke the front window, dismantled the stove and fridge, then the water heater, and washer dryer. The pieces are all over the ground in the kitchen and basement. Now he'll amble out to the garage to work on the family auto.

13. For awhile until production is cut........

It's like having tons of grain setting on the ground,you'd sell it cheaper just go get it gone and make something. It won't happen again though.
