Why install something and then remove it?..you've already bought it/used it, and you should pay for it.

Don't you think it's a waste of money?

That's what we're all supposed to do...

...buy stuff we don't need just to keep people working. What do you think stimulus money is for? It's to serve one's want and not one's need. "Waste not,want not" is the old paradigm. It's now either "Live and squander or live in squalor". It's a civic duty.

Starting a trade war with Canada would be very stupid....

But that seems to be the new policy. And it's not only with Canada.

construction projects with federal money on the table required a very high percentaqe of US made steel. One problem encountered for my industry (security fencing) at the time was the galvanized coated steel/pipe. Domestic steel and pipe coatings were inferior to import coatings from Japan and India and would not pass ASTM corrosion testing standards. Enforcement of those restrictions soon eased and eventually was seldom enforced. The US steel industry continued it's downward decline.

Ripping out that Canadian pipe is a total waste!

Perhaps it was just bad spin.

I saw an ad for a Canadian product which said, 'Don't be fooled by overseas imports. Our quality is better, and you'll be supporting North American workers.'

We're all in this together, eh?

We (US & Canada) don't trade goods with each other, we manufacture/produce goods together.
