That's 200 billion, Captain, not 2 billion

The centrepiece of the deal is a pledge by China to purchase at least an additional $200 billion worth of US farm products and other goods and services over two years, over a baseline of $186 billion in purchases in 2017. The deal would include $50 billion in additional orders for US agricultural products, President Trump said, adding he was confident that US farmers would be able to meet the greater demand. He also said China would buy $40 billion to $50 billion in additional US services, $75 billion more in manufacturing goods, and $50 billion more worth of energy supplies.


  1. Nothing more need be said or written about Nasty P.

    Thanks for the post.

  2. Why did it take Pelosi so long to sign and deliver articles of impeachment to Congress?

    On December 18 The house passed two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. On Wednesday January 15 Speaker Nancy Pelosi formally signed the two articles of impeachment, obstruction of Congress and abuse of power using $15,000 worth of custom made Pelosium pens. It took almost a month to collect and refine enough Pelolium to manufacture the 32 pens used in the signing ceremony.

    Pelosium continues to have major effects on Capitol Hill. The element was named 10 years ago. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311.

    These particles are held together by dark forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

    The symbol of Pelosium* is PU.

    Pelosium's mass has increased over time, as the morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes.

    Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass. When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates CNNadnausium, an element that radiates orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.

    Scientists point out that Pelosium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Pelosium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising. Scientists also believe that this is the primary reason that Donald Trump's impeachment is doomed to failure.

    1. This is brilliant, and hilarious. Well done.

  3. Check your Snopes before you start spreading bullshiit.

    1. Nobody here believes a word says.

    2. Snopes? Gatdam that's funny...
      Little yellow smiley dude crying tears funny. It's even more telling that snopes, in the linked article, immediately switched to attacking President Trump in some manner. Sissy whiny crybabies. Zero bähls
