My God, where did Tiny ever find a canon that could fire a ball that bigly? So far. we have a following wind that is filling the few sails we have left – but one more salvo and we are in deep dodo.
That canon ball is incoming. Please may it land on the poop deck where trump is doing what babies do.
….as long as he gets what he wants, he couldn’t care less who it affects….
And EXACTLY HOW MUCH per taxpayer will his SOCIALISTIC $21 BILLION HANDOUT to the farmers HE SCREWED OVER with his tariffs cost???
Haul on that bowline we sang that melody,
Like all tough sailors do when they’re far away at sea.
I think I’ll call it america. I said as we hit land.
I took a deep breath. I fell down, I could not stand.
Captain Arab he starting writing out some deeds
He said let’s build us a fort and start buying the place with beads.
Just then a cop come down the street crazy as a loon
They throws us all in jail for carryin’ harpoons.
Bob Dylan’s 115th Dream
One or two more and tiny will mast us. (Shoot out the mast/s. A tactic of naval warfare at the time)
So the “Art of the Deal” is if that if the other party does not immediately agree, we start a war (trade war, military war, whatever)? No wonder he lost a billion over ten years as a citizen.
It won’t be a warning shot across the bow, but a direct hit.
Close.. only counts in horse shoes.. Surely trump’s wisdom will prevail.. just hang in there America, short term pain for.. well, perhaps a long time..for nothing.. but rest assured whatever the outcome.. the trump will declare it a win.. and thus it will be.
The Chinese have opened fire on “Old Ironbrains”.
The cannon is firing behind the ship, and the ball has ripped through the sails. At least the ball didn’t take out any of the masts…
Notice that it hit “old glory” first ,as most tariffs do.
Fortunately, trade wars are easy to win.
Even more fortunately, we have the Best Negotiator in Human History.
All His Disciples know that.
WE lose all the way!!!
Great visual Steve!!
not only do the taxpayers pay the 21 billion to the farmers they also have to pay for the tariffs imposed by the Lord.
That’s an incoming canon ball.
TV a few minutes ago: Typical consumer will see a $700-plus increase in expenses due to these tariffs (not counting whatever China does in retaliation). And we’ll all have to watch the Soybean farmers take assistance they wouldn’t need if not for him, which will be funded by increasing the national debt. Yay.
That’s about $229,600,000,000 ($230 Billion) that won’t be spent at retail, put into banks, used to pay off debts… And about the same amount that will go into the Federal coffers. Guess which economic group pays a greater share of that. Yep, you guessed it!
It shows what happens when friendly fire goes wrong,
