I'll readily admit, I had no idea about how often or not it's happened.
Trump has already issued 3 during his 2 years....
Here's a list of the 31 national emergencies that have been in effect for years
Here's a list of the presidents who declared still ongoing national emergencies.

According to the Federal Register, 58 national emergencies have been declared since the National Emergency Act of 1976 was signed into law by President Gerald Ford.

And 31 have been annually renewed and are currently still in effect, as listed in the Federal Register.

The vast majority of these "national" emergencies are not actual emergencies and they aren't about our nation.

Listening to the news you would think this has never been done before.
And these same media members would be cheering if the roles were reversed. They would argue that the Reps in Congress gave him no other option and would use the entire incident to continue attacking the Republicans for not being willing to compromise. Their outrage is as fake as the stories they report. Remember, these are the same people that didn't have a problem with (or outright supported) Obama saying he had a pen and a phone.

With Amazon, she's literally blinded by her disdain for capitalism to the point that she's publicly celebrating the elimination of those 25k jobs.
Its harder to scare people into thinking they need government to take care of them when they are gainfully employed. Harder to paint capitalism as the bogey man when there is hard evidence slapping them in the face.

there simply is no realistic alternative to Capitalism.
But Capitalism would eventually fail if it was denied all the subsidies and welfare it wants and gets from the government. It seems Amazon fears it would fail, if it doesn't get billion$ of incentives from the government. It has already been enjoying paying little if any federal income tax.

What is the problem? Do you, NotOnTv, Duke Silver and John C quite strongly support government welfare? The more of it, the better in the name of capitalism? Amazon had to back out because the billion$ in government incentives weren't popular with the locals who expect more from the government in providing public services than you do. Once again, government isn't free.

that is about the most idiotic statement that you've said this month.... ignorance is forgivable, intentional ignorance is unforgivable.

you sir, are not describing Capitalism... you are describing government intervention.

Capitalism is nothing more than free trade among free people. What is your solution?

Once again you prove that you do not know the difference between capitalism and crony capitalism. It's no wonder you think capitalism is bad, you don't know what it is. But it is surprising that you think this way and still want MORE government intervention in the economy.

You guys need to be careful how you word you responses. Some of your replies are sounding a lot like the "not TRUE socialism" people you poke fun at...

Passive aggressive much?

Show me where capitalism as it is practiced in this country and elsewhere in the world has killed 85 million people throughout history.
