    Do you think that nothing was taught before the advent of the textbook? How incredibly naive.

    So we can offset any tariffs with tax cuts. Problem solved.

    What was wrong with BigLeroy's post that you believe he should be called a fool?

    You as a perceptive person should have no problem point that out.

    You want to counter a tax with less taxes? Is that what you are proposing? Really?

    Fine. Name me a single economics TEACHER, then, before about 1780 AD. And give some idea of WHAT they were teaching. You might wish to take note of the fact that NO ONE anywhere in the world knew ANYTHING about 'the bell curve' before the development of statistics in the 17th century, though. You know, the 'bell curve' being discussed in the OP. That he seems to think was being taught in Old Kingdom Egypt.

    This would make you an anarchist, not a conservative. Just FYI. Like Grover Norquist, you want to "shrink government until it's small enough that you can drown it in a bathtub".
