Trading with country's who have slave labour is unacceptable.
That is the mindset Im noticing with a lot of Americans.
They think that globalization is necessary. That has never been the case
They don't want to make "America great" again, which makes me wonder if it's because of their hatred of the person trying to do that.
They turn a blind eye to the greedy companies who are exploiting slave labour.
They ignore the fact that they are doing business with a totalitarian regime

And now I read
"All interconnected and friends.
Beats the stew out of war and fighting for resources."


Which is complete and utter nonsense.
International trade is a competition, there is nothing friendly about it.

The American military is deployed in over 150 countries. That's a staggering amount given that the UN recognizes 195 countries. Peace through forced coercion.
They have been at war 93% of their history and have been involved in more conflicts than France who is 4 or 5 times older than America and is surrounded by other nations.
So for Americans to talk about being friendly and peaceful is absolute rubbish.

Then there is the assertion that the reason why we haven't had a major war since WW2 is because we are all friends now in this globalization. Another false statement. The only reason there hasn't been a world war for so long is because of nuclear weapons. Nothing more

I also agree that the "friends" thing is not correct. Many people trade everyday with each other in general, some many days, and they are not friends, it's just a trade and deal, nothing more.

Can't say that isn't true either ,however ,I,refuse to want a govt telling me I can't sell my,products to bahama but must sell and make less because of costs ,for example,to sell to another place in the u.s.parts of the Bahamas are closer to me then Georgia ,if i ship ,it may be cheaper

I live in a region with minimal cases, hopefully it stays this way and this lockdown contains the disease, and common sense says the region should then be lifted from lockdown, but on strick conditions like all travel in and out is blocked and regional boarder is locked down except for essential services if really needed.

That would be the common sense thing to do, region by region lift to get things running again quickly. Not nationwide lift all at the same time everyone has to wait.

It's all about boarders. Always has been.

That's what I been speaking about. There is always an excuse for everything especially when it comes to health and safety. It's always based on a could happen.

In my many years of experience fishing something could happen to me now if I go so im banned,.someone might have to come and recuse me and it puts them at risk.

I been fishing since I was 5 so that's 35 years I have been fishing and I have never needed to be rescued, because I look after my own health and safety.

Just like a lifeguard knows the ocean rips I know the rocks.

Is rock fishing dangerous, yes it can be.

This is an example of complete amateur idiot rock fishing . Do not be like idiot. Do not do what idiot is doing. You hit the water kiss your butt goodbye your not coming back. Rescuers might find your body one day.

Idiot was just lucky. That is one of the dumbest rock fisherman I have even seen. No life jacket, a fish seemed to be more important, had his back against big swells. It's not a joke that was high risk and all it would take is one wave and I near guarantee he would never be seen again.

All I can say is a nationwide lockdown is one thing but im also not looking forward to what's ahead even when lockdown is lifted.

I'm happy I got good hunting and fishing skills and know how to live off the land.

Not only does my made in the U S of A fishing reel keep going and going I also have never serviced it or washed it. 30 years later still charging. Top quality.

The company headquarters is still in USA and if the brand is still manufacturered there I will purchase more of there products. I have to look into it. If not I will go elsewhere.

We got locked down by the government because people did not listen to the governments advice, now everyone is being taught a lesson and the government has now showed its true power.

You leave home without a valid excuse face a penalty.
