Independence Day: Regurgitation

oh160219You know how Trump gets Mexico to pay for the wall? He slaps a 40% tariff on goods out of Mexico. Of course the result of that is that trade with Mexico plummets (after the Mexican’s retaliate with their own tariff) and the proceeds from the tariff slow to a trickle. Meanwhile American consumers pay more for goods and services they used to get cheaper from Mexico.

Free trade is ugly, destabilizing and clearly hurts some American workers who can’t compete with cheap foreign labor. But it’s infinitely better than the high tariff alternative.

You know how Trump gets Mexico to pay for the wall?

He doesn’t.

Butterflies Without Hats

I like how Hammy’s feet are off the ground when he’s lying on his tummy.

That’s it.

That’s all I have to say today.  Oh, and one other thing…

Sombreros did not originate in Mexico.  From Wikipedia….

Sombreros, like the cowboy hats invented later, were designed in response to the demands of the physical environment. The concept of a broad-brimmed hat worn by a rider on horseback can be seen as far back as the Mongolian horsemen of the 13th century.

Apparently, like everything else in the world…  Sombreros are made in China.

Monarch Butterflies Have Cold Toes

Two weeks ago we were dissing Rick Perry.  This week we’re riffing on the annual monarch migration.   Where else are you going to find this sort of attention deficit disorder range when it comes to topics?

Don’t like politics or butterflies?  Then try next week when we’re doing an all squirrel musical theater version of Das Boot.*

Over the Hedge:  Just all sorts of random shit since 1995

*Not really.
