Take another look at your chart. The level of CPI went from about 95 to almost 110, a bigger increase than in 2018. If you can look at this chart and see no upward movement 2011-2012 in CPI then you are proving your dishonesty.

The two events are not at the same point, genius.

And even if they were (which they’re most certainly not), how does that prove the basic fundamentals of tariffs incorrect? For all you know it could be the result of.....tariffs......

The ONLY way to know for sure is to take apart said thingy and track each part down to its origin. Good luck with that. Now if you donít care where the rubber grommets, screws, thread, etc comes from because the biggest part of said item is made here. Then carry on.

I'm talking about FTC law. No clue what you're talking about at this point.
I worked a job a while back they shipped out screws, grommets , washers, etc all made in, China, Mexico, etc.
And you had a few made here too. Letís say you have a water pump for a fire truck. The PUMP is made here but all those things I mentioned above are made in other countries. If you donít care about those little parts I aforementioned then thatís great. But itís insane to think that every little piece comes from here.

I've worked in manufacturing too. You keep changing your story.

You said NO product is 100% made here. I have examples. You go off track again...

You said nothing is all made here. Then you say some fasteners are. Fasteners are a product.

Well, were they made here or not?

Seriously? China dominates the rare elements market which can be found among other things in computer devices. SO you probably are buying chinese junk.
