I am appalled and disgusted with the virulent 7% inflation this nation is now experiencing, and the line of BS that the befuddled President Joe Biden is spinning about it.

As a trained economist, I have for a year been warning about the probability of this very development.

Biden betrays stupidity and economic ignorance when he seeks to “pin the tail on another donkey” and blame American business for the corrosive inflation that is eating away our standard of living. This is puerile political nonsense of the worst order.

The fault rests with Mr. Biden and the liberal extremists in congress. Since Roman times, inflation has always been caused by loose monetary policy and excessive government spending. And that is the case today. The Federal Reserve has been coerced into worrying about employment levels rather than inflation levels. And the federal government has poured vast amounts of unneeded funds into the economy.

For God’s sake, don’t pour gasoline onto this fire by passing goofy Biden’s “Build Back Deceptively” heap of legislative excrement.

The public knows who is especially responsible for today’s economic mismanagement. A recent Heartland Institute/Rasmussen poll was released with the headline, “'Voter’s Remorse'? Trump Would Win Rematch With Biden. "President Joe Biden would lose an election rematch to former President Donald Trump, who would win among independents and almost evenly split Hispanic voters," an article on rasmussenreports.com states. 

Chris Talgo, senior editor at the Heartland Institute, provides a very incisive commentary:

“Less than one year into his presidency, 52 percent of likely voters have an unfavorable impression of President Joe Biden. This is astounding, given the fact that the mainstream has given Biden the benefit of the doubt so often and glossed over his administration’s utter failures concerning the pandemic, inflation, foreign policy, et cetera. On the other hand, 51 percent of likely voters now have a favorable opinion of former President Trump. In fact, more likely voters would vote for Trump over Biden if the next presidential election were held today. It seems like American voters are experiencing a classic case of voter’s remorse.”

I agree with Talgo. Joe Biden is the worst president in living memory. He is a disgrace to the nation. He is the “president of chaos” and the “prince of divisiveness.” And his economic approaches reflect calamitous blundering. It will take us years, and probably a major recession to recover from his extraordinary ineptitude.

Meanwhile, here in VA (yes, I do live here! [lol]), our first PoC AG (Pr0g's are happy about this, right?) is getting to work!

Biden's a dud man walking.

"He gave a speech filled with distortions and extremely nasty attacks, as when the president challenged those who refuse to break the Senate filibuster to pass federal election legislation: “Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?”

"He accused Georgia and other states of aiming to “subvert” elections and said they were acting like “totalitarian states.”

Mr "Unity" capped the year off calling anyone against the Federal takeover of all voting as "raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacists". I don't know why that word coming from a democrats mouth these days is surprising after all, it's what they label everyone that disagrees with them.

I'm glad that Biden's controllers have been modifying his medications. His first year has been such an embarrassment, and no one could control what he uttered. Exclamations such as "My butt's been wiped!" has given little hope that Biden's Dementia is going to easy to manage. No wonder he didn't "campaign" and still doesn't take questions.

As for Biden's theoretical leadership, well anyone with 2 brain cells knows that he isn't leading anyone on anything, he's an addled mouthpiece. The problem with this arrangement, though, is that there is a group that is pushing the chaos, the divisiveness, and the intentional destruction of America. Let's remember not to point blame only at Biden.

I hope our illustrious, virtuous, and clearly highly intelligent prez (not even going to mention the awesome interview our VP gave last week! [lol]) keeps it up. It's the only way rational people are going to see what a debacle the Pr0g-Left is when they get any power...

Doc Samson

As Lou brings up FACTS, you can be sure that the Pr0g's will respond with logical counter-arguments! Oh, wait... [lol]
