This Is What Happens When You Put An Idiot In Charge of a Complex System

This Is What Happens When You Put An Idiot In Charge of a Complex System
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/15/opini...ss&emc=rss

Quote:In Iowa, where farmers raise 40 to 50 million pigs annually, President Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum from Mexico have already cost producers $560 million, according to an Iowa State University economist. How can that be, you ask. Mexico has threatened countervailing tariffs that include a 20 percent tariff on American pork. That prospect alone sent hog prices tumbling. If you like barbecued ribs, this could be a great summer for you. If you raise the pigs, you may be eating more barbecued beans.

Quote:Local newspapers across the heartland are full of similar tales of value destruction and lost income as a result of Trump trade war tweetism.


You know what, fucktards, you have only yourselves to blame.

It's an artifact of the Mercator Projection and aspect ratio.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

That, and they want to make sure it fits in the bounds of the image.

I like my answer better.  Remember, those frozen fucks elected Sarah Palin as governor.

My soybean crop is in the crosshairs too.

And the disallowed property tax deduction is going to sting too. Glad I don't have hogs. And I'm racking up medical bills at a quick pace this year too. Guess I'd pay my doctor ahead of the IRS if it comes to that.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

And China just fired back!

Quote:China’s Commerce Ministry said it would respond with tariffs “of the same scale and strength” and that any previous trade deals with Trump were “invalid.” The official Xinhua news agency said China would impose 25 percent tariffs on 659 U.S. products, ranging from soybeans and autos to seafood.

Just having fun but it's an example of false news.  Images are more powerful than words.  When they distort reality it becomes a major problem.

It doesn't matter that only 10 people live there.  (about 0.00084 % of the national population.)

That reads like the paper of a local highschool, wtf happened to the New York Times? I stopped reading when they basically clickbaited Trump stories all day long then want you to pay.
