    The problem with your theory is that all prices will likely rise negating the effect and just pushing more out of the workforce as it usually does...

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    That "crap" is what many consumers choose to purchase over the alternatives. If we don't want citizens to have that choice, increase duties of those items, including tech products manufactured there...

    You clearly presented it as fact and not an opinion so I simply asked you to prove it. If it is your "informed opinion" I'm asking for you to provide what informed your opinion.

    See that bolded part there? That's you saying it's not an opinion but rather that it is a fact because it has happened before. I didn't know I was getting up your ass by merely asking you to back up your claim and in doing so you'd fly off the handle. I guess the real question is... Y U mad?

    I'll see your bolded part and raise you your citation to disprove it as it is simply an informed opinion. I'm not mad, but I do get frustrated when someone jumps into a conversation demanding what he/she wants to see from someone else...

    Well it is a debate forum and in debate, it is customarily expected that when someone makes a claim, that they actually prove it rather than just float it out there, present it as fact, and then expect people to believe it. That's not debate really.

    I've no desire to spin my wheels on your behalf mired in a logical fallacy of trying to prove a negative also known as Evidence of Absence. Makes no sense. Kind of like your unprovable and baseless claim. But that's neither here nor there I suppose seeing how you are backing away from it now.

    I'm not backing away from anything. I come here for discussion, and I very rarely post links to support my opinions as I'm not out to prove anything to someone else, although you are free to do so in disagreement. IMV, if you need to post a link to what someone else has written, you have little conviction in your own beliefs...

    Using links to pull in supporting facts, IYO... weakens someone's argument? Interesting.

    Debate isn't all opinion you know. Opinion not based in fact is just absolute fruitiness. Having a conviction in your beliefs is solidified when based in fact.
