You get afraid when you realize the leadership in Washington today are a bunch of dolts who make decisions based mostly on wanting to win a popularity contest rather than rational decisions based on the best possible outcome.
We are facing imminent food shortages, the erosion of our currency, an economic collapse, and horrible decisions in foreign policy that have driven our two most consistent adversaries — Russia and China — into a mutually beneficial alliance hostile toward the US.
Hard times are coming to this country…hard times, and much of it is our own doing.
Country will turn back to Trump because of the stagflation and poor leadership from the Dems. Inflation combined with tax hikes across the board are going to sour a lot of Americans on this administration. Welcome back to the Carter years with dependence on foreign oil and huge jumps in the price at the pump. How long will the public tolerate this? Not long, I believe.
Current government in Washington is an embarrassment, particularly in regard to inept foreign policy. Whatever they do is based on ideology, not reason. It is often counterproductive, producing the opposite of what was intended. Witness their war on fossil fuels because of their climate-change ideology. It’s making fossil fuels more valuable as in pricier, not less.
Free Trade Isn’t Free
Democrats are almost a year in office, with control of both houses, and still haven’t passed the infrastructure bill that everyone, including all Republicans, wanted.
The bonanza bill to spend money on “clean energy” boondoggles will require huge increases in taxes and result in vast government waste on projects with little chance of actually affecting climate change or energy production — a case of government deluding itself into thinking that it can change our use of fossil fuels, for they haven’t admitted to themselves that the alternative sources of clean energy like solar and wind will never really amount to much percentage-wise. That’s the hard reality. Currently, all the renewable energy sources produce a mere 12% of total US energy consumption. I suppose that could eventually get to a whopping (sarcastic here) 15%.
Has anyone asked the question whether we really need to send our 3 and 4 year-olds to school? Whether this is really in our and their best interest? It smacks me of robbing toddlers of their carefree childhood.
The one idea that the Democrats have put forward that has real merit is the required 15% percent minimum tax on corporations. Long overdue that the government put a stop to corporations that make billions paying no taxes because they have an army of tax attorneys who can game the system.
So what have been the real downsides. We have a government that incentivizes illegal immigration. Our border with Mexico is chaos. We have witnessed a terrible exit from Afghanistan that encourages all our adversaries to see the US as a paper tiger. We now have a government that offers Europe no barrier to dumping steel and aluminum into the US — back to Democratic policies that lead to a rust belt in the US and loss of jobs, all for the sake of “free” trade that ultimately corrodes our economy. In other words, relative to trade policies, the Democrats have learned nothing.
US Energy Consumption by Type of Energy
America prefers to have a nincompoop as president than a true but contentious leader.
Afghanistan — What It Tells You
Our Commander in Chief at the White House should be called instead the Embarrassment in Chief. We traded this for a real leader in Trump. Go figure. But Trump wasn’t polite but rude and often nasty so he had to go. Duh.
Afghanistan — What It Tells You
We’ve swopped out a leader as president for one who is clueless. Was that a good trade? I think the country is now in serious decline. It’s a boat without a rudder. And don’t think for a second that the rest of the world doesn’t realize this.
Modern Slave Trade
The investigation into fraudulent voting in our recent presidential election is the story the liberal media is diligently trying to avoid. I guess fraudulent elections isn’t important to them.
They should apply Benford’s Law to the various states that had questionable voter counts in last year’s presidential election. Let’s see if Arizona really did vote for a Democrat.
More lame support for Israel by the Democrats. What do you expect from a party that wins election through fraud? Definitely not good government. We are in for a rough ride in the next 4 years. Lunatic policies and uncontrolled spending full of pure waste. In the 60s and 70s, this was the party of outstanding liberals who endorsed freedom of speech and other commendable values. Now it’s the party of thoughtless rabble rousers who really don’t give a shit for the country and its history…who actually want to see the country torn down.
