Yes, and it was a retarded thing to say, even with a qualifier. Actually, this is the more stupid thing you said,

"Money goes where money is, like gravity. If it's not broken up and dispersed from time to time the gears will eventually grind to a halt"

Sometimes that happens, but sometimes it doesn't. You'd be more interesting if you investigated why sometimes it does, and why sometimes it doesn't. (See also Piketty, whose book would be more accurate and more interesting if he had investigated when inequality causes problems, and when it doesn't. Because it doesn't always cause problems).

And i should note that i'm typically called a denyer because i don't buy into the doomsday prophecies and think the problems if ever realized would be better dealt with as technology advances and over the long period of time it will take to have the sort of dooms day problems.

It's somewhat frustrating that anyone who says anything negative about any part of AGW is labeled a denier and shunned.

ok, so you don't understand what a tariff is. Here you go:

A tariff is an artificial tax on importation. It is a market distortion.

Removing a tariff is the natural way things should be. If you want to talk about market distortions, it's that there are still tariffs on other things, sure. But removing tariffs is removing distortions.

You're welcome for clarifying that. You can tip me later.

The universe is all a spin-off of the Big Bang.
