On The Road Again – The All New Three Amigos Meet over NAFTA
The faces may have changed but the all new Three Amigos are meeting in Mexico over NAFTA issues….or is that “Canada and Mexico Still Getting Stiffed”? Our boy, Harpo, will be bringing in Canada’s new visa requirements for Mexican tourists so we don’t – GASP – end up with Mexicans claiming refugee status.
The crux of the meeting is all about The U.S. still driving the wheel when it comes to Mexican trucks hauling goods across the border. Funny how that was a drop-out in some of Canada’s major media outlets. But no matter what, the U.S. wants protectionism when it comes to the trucking trade and Obama is holding out for his drivin’ and swampin’ buddies.
So if NAFTA is supposed to be all about free trade and a type of amalgamation that would see the end of subsidies and protectionism for the 3 countries that make up North America, how come the United States is still shiny side up and greasy side down? Obama says it’s because of the economy but really, is he going to be any different from his predeccesors when it comes to playing big kid on the block? I doubt it, which makes NAFTA even more of a farce then it has been.
Good luck, amigos, as you sort out ‘movement’ , drugs, and who’s still the boss. While he keeps on trying, Harper still won’t have a one on one with Barak…not until September, seems no matter how hard he tries to be big man on campus the other kids won’t let him and my oh my how he must hate that because he’s been trying ever so hard since he was elected to be at the forefront of world leaders. IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN, STEVE!
