Mad as hell... July 21, 2014 at 07:45 am
Any dog can go crazy wanting to attack another dog but as I've recounted here many times when aRead More pitbull attacked me and my leashed dog Max. Max was no small dog...over 100 lbs at the time...and was ready to rumble with this little bitch pitbull but I saw the futility in it. Without going too much into detail let's just say the little bitch died from it's injuries a few months later while suffering the whole time getting there. Her owner was a dirt bag who didn't take it to the vet after I cracked and broke several of the little bitch's ribs when I launched it through the air with a swift but solid shin bone kick to the ribs. I can still see it in my mind's eye how it flew through the air a good 15' before landing on the road and spinning on it's side into the ditch.

They have the instinct they are born with to attack. It's in their blood. How many more peopleRead More need to get hurt or die because all these supposed pit owners were not raising them well? Don't matter the INSTINCT to kill is in their blood, no matter who raises it. Pure luck goes along with owning one.

"Balanced Trade Restoration Act" Who can argue with such a patriotic sounding title. TheRead More problem is, there's nothing "balanced" about it. A more accurate title for The Act would be "Son of Smoot-Hawley". And we all know how the little gem of legislation worked out in 1929. Trade protectionism is ALWAYS a bad idea. Artificially constraining an economy (limiting imports) NEVER works. The prices for imported goods would rise and domestic producers would start churning out crap as their competition was removed. Funny, it’s always the “losers” in a healthy trade liberalization dynamic (Like the US today) that cry out for “protection”. And when the policy lever pullers want action they always default to ADDING a new policy. How about instead we consider RESTRAINING an old policy…US corporate tax rates. The best policy to begin addressing the US trade imbalance is to radically cut US corporate income tax rates. That will bring cash and businesses that have expatriated back to the US. Don’t target a reduction in imports. Target an increase in exports. Let's not blame the foreigners. Let's look at ourselves and our INSANE tax policies.

Hi Paul, American manufacturing was built behind tariff walls that began under Alexander HamiltonRead More and have been dismantled only in the last 4 decades, precisely the period when ourt trade deficits appeared and have now reached over $700 billion per year. NEW PARAGRAPH Regarding your assertion that Smoot-Hawley caused the decline in world trade by provoking tariff wars, I do not think it was that simple. Remember that the Depression was well underway by the time the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act passed in 1930, thanks to the 1929 stock market crash. Even libertarian hero Milton Friedman understood that the Depression's causes were monetary, coming from a ballooning of money supply in the 1920s to turn the stock market into a bubble that popped in 1929. In the larger context of WW1 reparations crises, tariffs were certainly NOT the cause of depression. In the next several years, yes, trade dropped, as it always does in a depression. NEW PARAGRAPH Remember also tariffs went up in 1861, 1864, 1890 and 1922 without any resulting depressions, and the panic/recessions of 1873 and 1893 spread globally without tariff increases. NEW PARAGRAPH As for the place of Smoot-Hawley in our economic history, imports did fall by 2/3 in the next few years (of the Depression), but only about half of imported goods were dutiable under Smoot-Hawley, and those goods NOT dutied actually dropped more than those dutied. This according to Clyde Prestowitz, on page 83 of his book "The Betrayal of American Prosperity." He goes on to say it was the reduction in the money supply by the Fed Reserve that squeezed credit to result in decreased purchases of imports by businesses and individuals. NEW PARAGRAPH Even more interestingly, Prestowitz then compares that situation with our present experience, saying [in 2010] "In just the past couple years of economic crisis, we have seen US imports fall dramatically with no significant increases in tariffs and an unprecedented increase in the money supply. So maybe in crisis, people just stop buying. This possibility is only strengthened by the fact that although the almost equally high Fordney-McCumber tariff of 1922 represented a greater percentage increase in the tariff rate than the Smoot-Hawley tariff, it was followed by the boom of the 1920s." NEW PARAGRAPH Prestowitz has a lot more to say about how Smoot-Hawley has been maligned by free-traders trying to saddle it with responsibility for the Depression, which he says is deceptive or mistaken. I think he makes excellent points and therefore we should reject ascribing the collapse of trade in the 1930 to Smoot-Hawley or to tariffs in general.

Leave the pit bulls alone. What a hateful person. You might as well be writing about the blacks, orRead More the Jews, or whatever, but this is supposed to be OK because they are dogs and can't defend themselves? Shame on Patch for allowing this crap to pass as a 'blog'.
Susan Costello July 21, 2014 at 11:35 am
Oh pulleese, the point is that just humans stereotype Jews or blacks or Asians or Hispanics orRead More whatever, this blog writer is stereotyping. Yes, there are aggressive pit bulls just as there are aggressive Maltese and Goldendoodles. It's the owners who make the dogs bad and then when are made bad, they have the ability to cause damage because of their strength, size and jaws. I can't quite figure out what the agenda of this blog writer is .... maybe he has a dog fighting business and he figures if everyone hates all pitbulls, then he will be allowed to do his dirty business. Anyway it is appalling and offensive.
