Now we have a baby formula shortage. This joke of an administration just hit a new low.

Oh yeah... you don't care about people dying in an unnecessary war either.

My bad.

Iraq anybody?

You tried this tactic already... different situation... but still... no one really wanted that one either.

Hindsight is 20/20, but in real time lots of people were itching for revenge over 9/11.  It didn't matter that Iraq had nothing to do with the attacks.  That's why even many Democrats voted in favor of the war.  It was seen as "unpatriotic" to vote against it.  Hillary, Kerry, Biden all voted in favor.

Who are you, Keira Knightly?

That's the point.

You would think people would have learned from our mistakes... what were the reasons Putin stated for invading Ukraine? He's not claiming false WMD intel, is he looking for revenge... or maybe he is being patriotic?

Stop cherry picking and living in the past... I was talking about inflation and how the US compares to the rest of the world, but morekaos doesn't seem to think the rest of the world matters.

...and the Malaise speech comes out...He feels your pain (empathetic) Thank you President Carter..I mean Brandon....

Biden isn’t fooling anyone ⁠— inflation is his fault and he has no solution to fix it

The president set himself an easy task Tuesday — to show a dispirited public he cares about their painful straits. As he put it, “I want every American to know that I’m taking inflation very seriously and it’s my top domestic priority.”

Just not seriously enough to bring a single new idea to the table. Instead he fell back on tired tropes about how none of the historic increase in prices is his fault.

With Biden, the buck always stops somewhere else.

The two straw men he trotted out were familiar — the pandemic and the Putin Price Hike. The latter coined phrase is as ridiculous as President Gerald Ford’s WIN gambit, for Whip Inflation Now, and will no doubt be just as effective economically and politically.

Asked by a reporter after his address whether he accepted any responsibility for the crisis, Biden said no, adding: “I think our policies help, not hurt.”

Saying so doesn’t make it true.

See!!...Inflation is your friend!..The Boy King wants to send you money for doing....nothing.  Makes sense...

California Gov. Newsom proposes inflation relief checks

Gov. Gavin Newsom wants to use some of the state's projected record $68 billion budget surplus for an $18.1 billion inflation relief package.

The proposal includes:

$11.5 billion to send $400 checks to car owners$2.7 billion toward emergency rent relief$1.4 billion to help people with past-due utility bills$933 million for relief checks to some hospital and nursing home staff
The governor also is proposing $750 million for free public transit, a pause in the diesel sales tax, and waiving child care fees for low-income families.

"It's a struggle right now so if it does pass it'd be very much appreciated," said Stephanie Smith, a Richmond resident who has three children and a spouse in her household.

Really?  OMG, stop already.  If you are running surpluses put it aside and fix infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc) or put into schools or better yet lower some taxes (like the gas tax).

A year ago I was paying $2.90 for a gallon of gas = $6.00 a gallon gas...fact or just my opinion.  Numbers...just numbers.

Except gas now is about $4.00. Stop lying.

Also, what does that have to do with anything? A year ago, demand was less because fewer people were driving. I mean, seriously. Stop using misinformation.

You were saying?.... ;D ;D >:D
Gas prices hit $5 in Manhattan

NEW YORK - Gas prices are on the rise and they have hit nearly $5 for regular and are now about $5.40 a gallon for supreme in Manhattan.

A Mobil station on 11th Ave. on the West Side had the eye-popping prices on Monday evening.

https://www.fox5ny.com/news/gas-prices-hit-5-in-manhattan

Do you believe now Trinity?…


“Did you ever think you’d be paying this much for a gallon of gas?” Biden said. “In some parts of California, they’re paying $4.50 a gallon.”


Funerer and funerer!!... ;D ;D >:D

Los Angeles becomes the first US city to hit average gas price of $6 per gallon: Fuel costs continue to soar on the West Coast while they level off in the rest of the country
Gas in Los Angeles hit a record high of $6.011 per gallon on Tuesday
It is the highest recorded average gas price for a major US city, experts say
Gasoline continues to soar on the West Coast, particularly in California
However, the US average has leveled off from this month's record highs

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10641909/Los-Angeles-major-city-reach-6-average-gas-prices.html

We're #1! We're #1!  Not good enough to torture just the city dwellers...lets get em all and have a Statewide average of $6.00...I knew we could get there!!...well done team!!

OIL AND GAS
California’s gas average tops $6 per gallon as prices across the U.S. surge


California’s statewide average for a gallon of gas has surged to a record above $6.
The national average for gas hit $4.523 on Tuesday, according to AAA, also a record.
The rapidly rising price of gas is contributing to inflationary pressures across the economy.

Unfortunately, it's true.  There's a shortage of hooves and lips due to the Ukraine war.

Needs to look butch and maintain some form of credibility....

Powell says the Fed will not hesitate to keep raising rates until inflation comes down

Fed Chair Jerome Powell said he will back interest rate increases until prices start falling back toward a healthy level.
"If that involves moving past broadly understood levels of neutral we won't hesitate to do that," the central bank leader told the Wall Street Journal
