Are millennials dumb, or what?

I realize the U.S. education system is mostly progressive indoctrination and a little education, but I have explained the  Bill  of Rights   to an eight-year-old and he gets it.   We’re halfway through the Constitution, and he seems to grasp it quite well.   What the hell is wrong with these unthinking slugs?   People whose first language is not English manage daily to catch on to the meaning of our most important documents.

China needs soybeans…

If you’re going to get into a pissing contest with Donald J. Trump,  it might serve you well to be certain you can feed your people and serve your markets  without purchasing  soybeans from the USA.   It might also be useful for you to employ someone able to see that South America is suffering a shortage of the product,  so that even if china can import more from Argentina,  the latter country will likely have to import additional supplies from America.

Goodness,  this international trade stuff is really interconnected and difficult,  ain’t it?
