    If you think this is stress, talk to the folks at the stock market. There are already Christmas lights for sale here in the hardware stores. Nothing political intended but with this tariff war going on, I think a lot of stores will be early on Christmas this year, trying to get ahead of the Sept deadline for new tariffs. I did read today that some things have been taken off the tariff list until mid December. Items like cell phones, computers, clothing and shoes, toys, video games and consoles, all of which make up a large part of holiday shopping. It seems to get a little worse each year.

    That's the perfect word to describe a lot of what comes from the U.S. Mint these days.

    Didnt you hear? Once Labor Day hits, it's time for Christmas shopping. The heck with pumpkin lobotomy and turkey devouring. Bring on the carols of broken piggy banks and maxed out credit cards!!!

    I bet Christmas trees will be triple the price of last year, or else start using young Eucalyptus instead of fir, or maybe get a plastic tree ( don't know if they are on the tariff list or not). Maybe decorate my Mexican Bird of Paradise bush/tree :)

    Christmas in July is a thing. That is when Hallmark comes out with their new Christmas ornaments for the year. So I guess the U.S. Mint is getting in on the early holiday consumer push.

    How is that NOT a political statement? ...(troll). Practice what you preach.

    Nah we still grow trees in America. Luckily I live in a state with an abundance of perfect Christmas trees. Just need a chainsaw and a quick trip to the mountains:)

    It sounded more like a global economics statement to me. Is that a no-no too?

    Yakpoo, you know how to report a violation. Don't forget I mentioned Christmas also. Oh, and there are others that used the same words in the thread. And you mentioned the US Mint, a government function also so add yourself, Wonder why you only called me a troll? Oh wait I remember. Jim

    You're a moderator...you should behave according to the rules you enforce.
    That's all.

    Sounds like there's a personal agenda behind this accusation. Isn't that violating the terms ;)

    Don't worry about it Yakpoo, or anyone else , Doug reads everything. If a moderator violates his standards, they do NOT get a free pass by any means! Jim

    Well he doubled it twice today and then because he couldn't find his cane, he kill it all, but now I am back to the standard $0.
