Seriously Dude? USD 2000-2500 SAVINGS moving a box from LA to US Midwest inland destination? Do they even know the market rate to move that box door to door? Knock off the nonsense.
Besides, when Trumpolini and McCain get rid of that gnarly Jones Act stuff, it’ll be time for those Goldman Sachs financed Honduran flag inland tows manned by the finest Burmese indentured seamen, managed by Indian supts in Singapore, classed HR and docked in the Dominican Republic to reap some serious offshore income, that, if it’s existence ever comes to light (assuredly by accident), might be voluntarily declared eligible for US repatriation at the new 8% tax rate, or at worst treated as “carried interest” 15% tax rate returns … for the job creators. Or better yet, the income be miraculously be declared a “loss” incurred by serving the “difficult” US market place and all those crushing regulations like those that prohibit the discharge of oily waste upon inland rivers. Atop all that, it will be discovered by trial and error that the Burmese crew has to be fed from time to time, so a US taxpayer subsidy is clearly called for to ensure a container of Chinese made Christmas lights can get to Cincinnati on the cheap.
Of course by then the best jobs for Americans will be those $12/hr big box store positions, and we can all go to a Blackstone hedge fund owned clinic to use our new voucher paid health insurance policy, available across state lines on the old style “mandatory to be medically underwritten” basis - for those that qualify, which definitely isn’t losers, and isn’t anyone over the age of 42 either. (All others need not apply).
Have a nice day.
