And you could have just ignored the people who were mad but here we are.

Fernando has ignored you guys being outraged by nonsense for quite some time, TBF.

Mainstream internet society never learned to not feed trolls. 90% of the shit in mainstream media is troll feeding anymore. It's been insane to watch it happen.

To be fair, not really. It was like 75% of twitter yesterday.

Trolling has led to dudes in the altright becoming genuine mass murderers, the entire gamergate movement, and Donald Trump becoming President. It's not exactly harmless.

Glad we all agree it was stupid for AOC to acknowledge them on twitter

It's my personal opinion that being a troll makes you an asshole, per rule of goats. That being said I'm going to change the subject before my moral policing triggers Nando into a long form essay on every reason I'm a bad person.

How a McConnell-backed effort to lift Russian sanctions boosted a Kentucky project

An exposé on his corrupt politicking is probably ruining Mitch's morning.

I don't know anything about Barstool Sports other than that they seem like a poor man's tribute to Opie & Anthony but with a sports focus and without the God known as Patrice O'Neal.

Because idiots feed the trolls and even dumber people think the trolling is real behavior.

Let's ban sarcasm and satire, though.

But it has also lead to Baneposting and thus all the negatives are absolved.

I need Shams thoughts on the yield curve and the Christmas break tariffs.

No you don't. It's going to be nothing to see here and I see what you're upset about today.

The tariffs are so good for us that we can afford to delay them 4 months...

But seriously, Trump actually said that he decided to delay the tariffs to avoid hurting families buying gifts for Christmas...and then in the same breath said that there was minimal to no impact of the tariffs on consumers buying goods.

It's like they have no idea how tariffs work or impact the economy, and just magically believed that doing so will not only bring production immediately back to the US but also automatically make things cheaper. Imagine thinking this president is smart...

Kudlow admitted months ago that US consumers were going to pick up the tab. No confusion except for the idiots like Sham who swallow everything the guy says. Look at it as a tax hike and it makes more sense.

But I was told China would cave so fast. Now I'm just waiting for the complaint on here that China cheated by manipulating their currency so it isn't fair.

It's almost like tariffs have been tried so many times over the years and almost never work, and when they do work it's with a country that can't afford to lose US trade. How did anyone look at China, an economy at worst equal to the US (generally speaking on a global scale), and think they would crumble because of America's big bad tariffs? Like how dumb do you have to be?

i think the point was to encourage more american-made products to be bought, by artificially making chinese goods more expensive. since america imports from china more than china imports from america, china would feel the damage on tit-for-tat tariffs more.

theoretically, that would make chinese goods less cost attractive and encourage more demand for american-made goods which would create more theoretical american manufacturing jobs.

it hasn't played out that way because china has a central government that will quietly bail out banks and other industries as needed for the sake of their long-term plan and their people can't raise too much stink about it

Right but that's always the argument and almost never takes into account who the opposing party is or what the possible reaction will be. It's always "well if we make Chinese products cost more, everyone will buy American and that will create tons of jobs in America!" And everytime people eat that shit up like maybe this time it will work when most times it doesn't.

Again, it's more important to know who you are facing than to just blindly implement a policy because that's what the party wants you to do since it makes them look good trying to make america great again.

Tariffs only work in very specific circumstances, for very specific products or goods, and with very specific opposing parties. It doesn't work when the US buys tons of majorly used electronics and goods used everyday from the largest producer in the world.

I've clearly been living under a rock as I just realized Andrew Cuomo and Chris Cuomo were brothers.

At the risk of coming off as the moral police, this is a bad person.
