A couple of things need to happen yet but it appears that the Savage from Scranton will be taking on the Ninny from NYC in a cage match.

Despite hopes that it could be a simple duel in a field with the modern day equivalent of the Wogdon & Barton dueling pistols used in the Burr-Hamilton squabble, current news events and tragedies have tempered the desire for such carnage.

In lieu of such, both fighters have been working out in private, fine tuning their skills and readying their corners with the necessary ventilators and fibrillators which may be needed.

As is normal in a civilized society both of these athletes, neither of whom is expected to make it the 2020 election, nonetheless are trash talking and revving up enthusiasm for the betting crowds.  The Savage from Scranton will be frisked prior to the match to make sure he doesn't bring brass knuckles or a length of pipe into the ring and the Ninny from NYC will be forced to shed his daily girdle and enter the ring in the splendiferous pulchritude he is known to display on his money laundering golf courses. 

Ringside seats will be available for purchase soon on most of the usual sports aficionado sites.

The predicted outcome is expected to be much like this:

I just want to see the hidden bald spot.

I'd an eagle eye on Mr. Market all day and started thinking of the smartest quant I'd ever mentored and elbowed with ... one time we laughed despairingly at my 'joke' that if there's a hellish wind and ear-drum breaking BOOM and mushroom cloud ... run toward it.
Would somebody please xplain who pays the tariff at POS? Say if I need a whole container of stainless steel tea balls from the Far-East, and solely by insouciant decree (not market dynamic!) the cost has accelerated by whatsit? 10%. So where's the tariff wind up? Good colleague manufactures motorcycles and is v.e.r.y. unhappy. He's also planning a community festival marking the 115th Harley Anniversary and he's going what the FRACK? We all know that the cost of hammers and cow bells are going to inflate trickling down to ma & pa kettle. What's next $49. for a roll of aluminum foil?
Hey this was an exceptional piece of the sky,aka. Certainly it's become the platinum era of comedy! Also a rhapsody in blue, blue blue!

I haven't any idea where the money goes at the point of sale. Mr. POTUS's brilliance caused the market to plummet today so clearly many are not in favor even if they don't make motorcycles in their garage.

I am willing at this point, simply as a stop-gap measure to be responsible to hold the cash until the furor dies down. It's the least I can do.

The only way this works is if someone starts making stainless steel tea balls here for less than people can get them from China. 

It could conceivably be the Chinese.

I am afraid to Google "stainless steel tea balls".

I am completely befuddled at this point.

Seriously? You put loose tea leaves in this thing and either dunk it in a cup or a teapot. Instead of tea bags. China makes them, in part because they make everything and in part because they’re big on hot tea. The Brits use them a lot. 

If someone in the US starts making them and selling them less expensively than Chinese imports including a tariff, that creates American jobs. That’s the theory behind tariffs.

However, as Robert Young points out, Trump puts tariffs on stuff we either don’t make or don’t get much of from China. Which is just posturing dumbshit that pisses off our trading partners.
