Um.....the US economy lost 10's of thousands of jobs, IE 10's of thousands of taxpayers.
It's self evident, unless you can show how this is good or neutral for the US economy? I'm betting you won't, probably just call me some names...
If the food that replaces Hostess on the shelf is from the US, there isn't necessarily a loss of jobs, perhaps a shift of jobs from one US place to another, but not necessarily a loss. I hope the junk food void is filled by crap made in Canada and the jobs go here.
So you make a point to comment about how little impact this will have on the US economy, but then in the next post you comment about the hopefully positive impact to Canada's economy?
That makes you a hypocrite. You can't get a positive effect from something you just argued does not have a negative effect.
