Just a few words on those trade restraints the new President wants to place on Mexico. Mexico actually imports corn from Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri. Corn is a staple in Mexican diets and foods. Most of the cheese that Mexico uses comes from Wisconsin.
If Trump puts a tariff on these goods or a 20% charge, they’ll still get their cheese and corn.
But they’ll buy it from Argentina.
And the farmers in Wisconsin Kansas, Iowa and Kansas will be hurt.
Again, this guy and for that matter even his voters in these states never think of the consequences.
Some local yokel penned a letter to the Times Leader last week saying that actors should stick to their trade and not offer political opinions. I guess he’s okay with Reagan, Eastwood and Scott Baio but not the current crop. Here’s the nonsense:
Dear Hollywood actors and actresses,
Remember what has gained you your millions and your fame. It is not by playing yourself, which is the first clue that you should shut your mouth when you’re doing your own scripting.
You have made your life by playing other people. Someone wrote your lines for you. A director told you how to emote in various scenes.
Others have dressed you, both for in front of and behind the camera. The fact that you are good at playing other people when someone has literally created that character for you, does not mean you are good at playing yourself.
Yet you all think that you are some kind of political, social and cultural savant.
We have enjoyed many of you playing others. We don’t enjoy, nor do we pay, for you to play yourself.
So please, please, stop with your nonsensical opinions on all matters. We really don’t care, and it’s never a performance we enjoy.
So please, please, stop with your nonsensical opinions...apparently advice not taken by the writer.
