It really looks like he's giving the finger sideways and saying "fark."

Figurative and literal.

The Bob Ross one is pretty hilarious and inspired.

Fine we can use 100 bills to pay for it since the stack will smaller.

Thanks for reminding us how much the military budget almost is.

No wonder billionaires keep buying yachts.  They have to store all these bills somewhere.

Yes. And any $1tn coin should be screwed to the Resolute Desk.

As should we all!

Excellent. Now Democrats can use this to explain tax cuts for the wealthy.
 
2021-03-05 3:16:32 PM  
He's right, money should be thinner.

Republicans wealth all know the end result - new taxes on them and it is long overdue.  tax wealth exponentially to keep everyone in a more tighter range of income so more people stay relevant to each other.

Or how much they spent to bail out Wall St. while also simultaneously losing 22 million jobs.

If he was smarter, he'd have at least told us what 63,000 miles really is compared to football fields, or in Talladega Race tracks.

Uh... just from memory, I don't think Ron knows how far away the moon is.

Either that, or he can't do math at all.

Maybe both, come to think of it?

Really we need a new form of measurement for the GOP.

The MAGA, based on the size of a small clitoris, would make a great replacement and solve some problems.

They can be like their Democrat colleagues, who are comfortable using small scientific metric units for measurement, which describe things too small for the human eye.   Most are familiar with microscopes from science class are at home using this measurement.

The clitoris, for the pale and male Republican, is unknown, unseen, and requires a leap of faith that it exists.  Once they crossed the boundary of embracing Qanon, they should be just as comfortable with the equally bizarre assertion that the clitoris exists.  MAGA is a fitting, and familiar sounding word, to describe this.

Republican politicians are complete pieces of shiat and so is at least 16% of Democratic politicians.

No, he's (barely) right - it 1T is 67,866 miles, then 1.9T is 257890.8 miles, Luna averages 238,900 miles away.  On the other hand it's a stupid metric.

So, no 50 votes in reconciliation, no filibuster changes, no 60 votes, proposal is dead in the water, all of this is pointless spectacle.

Do you expect me, a potheaded conspiracy theorist UFO nut to take Ron Johnson seriously?

I look down on him and can't be arsed to see what he has to say.

He's too crazy for me. I can't respect that.

Sorry, got *my* math wrong - 1.9T is 128945.4 miles, more than half way to Luna

Our government has seriously compromised individuals in all ranks. This dumbass from Wisconsin just isn't good at disguising it. And he's terrified.

Repealing that Trump Tax cut would cover it.

Hang on.  My phone says Amazon has just delivered a "Kick 2 da Nuts" box in my drive way.  I'd better go see what 's in it.

And how many trillions have we spent on unnecessary war?

The US consumes 27.3B pounds of beef.  That's a stack of quarter pounder patties 5.1M miles high!

Lol.

That's really not that much if you just compare it to the length of slim jims made every year.

Let's do some Bibliomancy on Ron Johnson using the book, I is for Illuminati:

Having survived Soviet radiation exposure in Jonestown, Ron Johnson tried to start a race war against Robert Mueller and Jesse Ventura, but he failed because Sneaky Peeky is not a phenotype.

For years I've been a critic of "Meaningless Metrics" aka "Stupid Comparisons" under the rubric "Nickels to the Moon;" with the simple question: "what happens if you make it dimes instead?"

That said, I look forward to a thread filled with cool Shops. Get busy Farkers.

Oh, that's me failing to read more than the numbers on his easel, and forgetting the amount being discussed.

Anyway, we should use $100 bills to keep the stack smaller.
