    Ah! One of the most fascinating and consequential policy issues that Americans know nothing about.

    The "Jones Act" from about 1920? Son has sailed as USNS crew to supply and fuel USN ships in the Gulf. That is why a lot of stuff in Hawaii costs a lot!! Under the Act it can't be brought in on foreign vessels only US Flagged. It is not new but it does protect our Merchant Marine. We might need them again,
