In other news, the Senate is going to vote on legislation to raise the national smoking age from 18 to 21.

Meanwhile, Reuters reports that analysis of Trump's fake NAFTA replacement conducted by the U.S. International Trade Commission will show "little or no U.S. gains."

(Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers and economists are awaiting a key analysis of the economic impacts of the new North American trade deal, expected to be published late on Thursday and to show minimal gains at best for the United States. [...]

The administration is preparing a public relations offensive, as an analysis showing little or no U.S. gains from the changes would be a setback for Trump and give some Democrats an excuse to deny him a major political victory.

Finally, here's some creepy robots who are clearly strong enough to drag you down the street.

  • Michael B Conway

    You really gonna tell soldiers they can no longer “smoke ’em if ya got ’em?”

    • Christopher Foxx

      If we’re going to pick some arbitrary age to declare people adults, then it should apply across the board. This “You’re an adult at 18 as far as these things are concerned, but not an adult until 21 for these other things” is typical stupidity.

    You know how I know the country’s gone to hell in a handbasket?

    I was so excited to see some creepy robots preparing to become our creepy overlords. Couldn’t be worse than Steve Miller, right?

    It occurs to me that those robots could be used to drag a different large useless object away.

    In the Things to Consider category:

    “Trump’s Nafta Revisions Offer Modest Economic Benefits, Report Finds” read the headline in the NY Times, which has altogether a different flavor than “Reuters reports that analysis of Trump’s fake NAFTA replacement conducted by the U.S. International Trade Commission will show ‘little or no U.S. gains.'”

    Not disputing either one, and I didn’t read either the Times story or Reuters, but I found the two takes… interesting.
