Jalopnik points to Emunds blog on Free Trade

Today on Jalopnik, they point to an blog post about Free Trade and the "Chicken Tax." Basically that's the 25% tarrif the US charges for all imported "light" trucks. Many people see this as proectionism. But while all of these sites talk about our tarrif on imported trucks, how many of them discuss the tarrifs on US products exported into foreign ports? This seems like a reapeat of yesterday, so check out my post from yesterday;
Free Trade vs Fair Trade

It's easy for people to call this tarrif wrong and say it's protectionism, but do they realize what US products face overseas? So keep the "Chicken Tax" and damn Free Trade, let's have some Fair Trade!
