REBEL FLAG .ca has gone ‘International! Last month: June 2018 we made our first sale to the United States. It had to happen someday: an ex-patriot Canadian, a Canadian sympathizer, or even a collector of Confederate based flags. There may even be such a thing as a Canadian ‘BAD ASS’. (Remember that Canadian and British troops burned the White House during the war of 1812.) The presidential White House occupant might want to re-write that historical fact to suit his current narrative.
The image that accompanies this post is a South to North view of the southernmost point of Canada: Middle Island in Lake Erie.
I might have to change the pricing structure to cover the new ‘reality’ of Carbon Taxes and Trade Tariffs for international orders.
Today’s takeaway is this: Canadian products are so much cheaper than American goods for one BIG reason: the CAD (Canadian dollar) is trading at around .75. That is a 25% discount for American buyers. We get to pay around $1.30 for $1.00 of U.S. goods. Free trade? Hardly.
AAND… Tariffs are a TAX designed to make imported goods more expensive purportedly to encourage sales of domestically produced goods. The 25% tariff being lobbed across our border is an additional tax that YOU AND I get to pay to OUR respective governments. THIS ‘TRADE WAR’ IS NOTHING MORE THAN A TAX GRAB!
