    Like millions of Americans whose income has not kept pace with inflation — up 5.3 percent in August compared with a year ago — Allison and her family are feeling the pinch of the rising cost of living and giving up some things just to make ends meet. ....
    Doubt the loss in purchasing power with accompanying repercussions for lower and middle class people is "unintentional".
    I do hope it will be a wake up call for some!

    I'm curious. Is food cheaper in Germany than the US or anywhere in the EU? One can of generic peaches is from.99- $1.19. I buy mark downs and at outlets to control costs of food bills with children. I also started to store food when I find it on sale. This is hard to do since many people are buying out fruit and vegetables cans like me when it is on sale. With the printed monies and government aid checks, inflation has become worse for those who work, along with wage hikes by many stores. In US, fast food is paying wages starting at 15-20 dollars p/h.

    I don't know if anyone missed me here on the board, but we finally moved off the border nearer to Canada. It took some months to organize and somewhat recover. We really see the breakdown in services as some places are barely functioning with labor shortages and experience longer waits for basic services. Even restaurants operate at half capacity or close early as people don't go back to work for their livable wages.

    Everything seems to be worse (lingering) under Biden's America since Trump aimed to get things opened and people working asap. With these "miracle jabs", all places should be fully functioning and open like before.

    ‘Fairness Mania’ Is Fueling a Dangerous Drug Dependence in India



    NYPost

    Heart be still, but America is in the early stages of what could be a major political shift. On issue after issue, from soaring crime to inflation to critical race theory, Democrats and the far left are being forced to play defense because their radical policies are failing.

    Those policies moved to the forefront with Joe Biden’s election and the elevation of Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist, to budget chairman. The resulting social-justice and climate-change agenda would “totally transform America,” Biden promised.

    But less than a year later, the results are disastrous. The effort to reshape the nation is clashing with reality — and reality is winning.

    The outcome is far from certain, but developments make me an optimist. The green shoots of sanity are all around us and are verified by Biden’s collapsing poll numbers, and recent election results in Virginia and elsewhere.

    With apologies to Mark Twain, reports of the death of the political center were exaggerated. It is alive and well, and holding its ground against the socialist onslaught.

    Certainly the White House sees the trend, and is feverishly hunting for any news it can say is good. Biden called a minor dip in gasoline prices “significant” and his team released a chart showing the average price falling.

    True, it had — by 2 cents a gallon, after rising by more than $1.30 in the last year.

    The chart drew scoffs on Twitter, but the joke was lost on the Democrats’ campaign committee, which retweeted the graphic with: “Thanks, Joe Biden.”

    Thanks for nothing would have been more appropriate! Or maybe Biden should thank Russia and OPEC for increasing oil production as he aims to limit America’s output.

    Ditto for Friday’s dismal jobs report, which the president could hail as “incredible news” only because he cited just the unemployment rate of 4.2 percent.

    As even Biden-friendly CNBC put it, the president “glossed over the weak” jobs total, which came to only 210,000 for November, against an estimate of more than 500,000. It was the worst month for new jobs all year–but it’s “incredible news” for a desperate White House.

    Under any president, there would be pushback and criticism on some policies. But Biden is taking an extra pounding because he put all his chips on extreme nostrums of the kind he scoffed at for most of his career.

    As a result, Calamity Joe has a staggering list of failures, and nary a success in sight.

    Even his vice president, Kamala Harris, is looking like a dud of historic proportions. Four people from her public relations team are leaving, as if her 28 percent approval rating is their fault.

    Biden is taking an additional pounding over his declining faculties. A recent Politico/Morning Consult poll found that only 40 percent of respondents agreed he “is in good health,” while 50 percent disagreed. That 10-point gap represents an enormous 29-point swing since just last year, when the same question found voters believed Biden was in good health by a 19-point margin.

    On that front, last week’s lowlights included the president’s tall tale about visiting Israel in 1967 and being a liaison for Prime Minister Golda Meir. Two problems: Biden was in law school in 1967 and Meir didn’t become prime minister until 1969.

    Not all the administration’s actions and inactions are harmless. Biden was virtually silent about the riots that rocked American cities in the summer of 2020, and still can’t give a straight answer about the continuing crime surge.

    Press secretary Jen Psaki even claimed Thursday the pandemic is a “root cause” of organized looting incidents. She didn’t explain how the pandemic led gangs of 30 or 40 men to use hammers and crow bars to smash windows and steal luxury dresses and jewelry.

    The New York Times is certainly doing its part in excuse-making. In a rush to defend the no-cash bail laws turning courthouses into revolving doors, the Times sent two reporters to Waukesha, Wis.

    To judge from their work, the assignment was to find an excuse in the case of Darrell E. Brooks Jr., charged with ramming his maroon Ford Escape into a Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring dozens more, many of them children.

    Dutifully, reporters Glenn Thrush and Shaila Dewan concluded that the measly $1,000 bail set in a previous case of violence, also involving his SUV, that put Brooks back on the street was not part of the low-bail movement, but was in fact the “result of happenstance and other factors.”

    With a sense of mission accomplished, the duo wrote that “The backlash raised fears that the fatal episode would set back efforts across the country geared at reducing the incarceration of poor defendants awaiting trial because they cannot afford bail.”

    In other words, don’t judge the policy by its failures and excesses. Only its intentions matter.

    Apparently the reporters never heard the maxim that the “road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

    Despite its obsession with race, the Times didn’t mention that Brooks is black and his victims white. Or that he previously spewed anti-white racism on social media and praised Hitler.

    Then again, I could find only two Times stories on the mass murder, illustrating how a story gets disappeared when the facts are inconvenient to the paper’s agenda.

    Fortunately, the corrupt media notwithstanding, many Americans are well-informed about the results of Biden’s presidency. Which is why I believe change is coming.
    Cuomo crony snooped so low

    Andrew Cuomo, the great corrupter, strikes again.

    The latest example is the story of how Cuomo cult boss Melissa DeRosa got a former aide to the former governor to secretly tape a phone call with another former aide who tweeted support of Lindsey Boylan’s claim of sexual harassment.

    DeRosa, according to transcripts released by the Attorney General, got Abby Collins, then a flak for the MTA, to call a woman identified only as “Kaitlin,” to see if she was allied with Boylan. Part of the ploy had Collins say she’d never heard of sexual harassment by Cuomo.

    “Kaitlin” didn’t know she was being taped but suspected something was up because Cuomo aides had been monitoring her LinkedIn page, she told investigators.

    Her lawyer, Zoe Salzman, told The Post the taping could be a crime because her client was in California at the time, which requires both parties to consent to taping.

    Collins now works for Goldman Sachs, which must examine her disgraceful role in the scandal, much as CNN, Time’s Up and others have done with their tainted employees.
    Annual ‘Bye-Bye Blas’ Day?

    Reader James Peaslee offers a good idea, writing: “November 25th used to be celebrated as Evacuation Day, the day when the final British troops left New York City in 1783 after their occupation during the Revolutionary War.

    “Maybe we should revive it and make it December 31st, to commemorate Mayor de Blasio leaving office.”

    Joe Biden Blames Coronavirus Anxiety and Misinformation for Disastrous Polling Numbers


    Joe Biden Blames Coronavirus Anxiety and Misinformation for Disastrous Polling Numbers.



    President Joe Biden continues to get poor ratings from the American people on his presidency, prompting the president to blame misinformation and coronavirus anxiety.


    A CNBC poll released Friday showed Biden with only a 41% approval rating with Americans giving him only a 46% approval rating on handling the coronavirus, and only 37% approving of his handling of the economy. Biden laughed off his poor approval numbers during a virtual
    appearance with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, joking that he did not even look at them anymore. But he ultimately blamed the ongoing coronavirus pandemic for making people upset with his job performance.


    “Look people are afraid. People are worried. And people are getting so much inaccurate information,” he said, talking about the economy. “They’re being told that Armageddon is on the way.” He also spoke about Americans experiencing fear about their family members contracting coronavirus. “They don’t know what to do about it. There’s a lot of anxiety,” he said. Biden said he would continue trying to make life better in the United States, although he acknowledged that people were personally experiencing inflation at the gas pump and in the grocery store. “My job is to be straightforward, shoot from the shoulder, let people know exactly what the truth is. And layout how I’m going to try and make life better for them,” he said.


    The White House claimed Friday Biden’s numbers on the economy were so bad because of the “psychology” that came with the coronavirus pandemic. “What we’re seeing in our data is people’s psychology on the economy, on how they’re experiencing things in the country right now is related to COVID,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said to reporters during the daily briefing.


    I was disgusted 40 years ago. FJB.


    The demented wretch Joe Biden is allowed to spew his lies only because Mitch McConnell and GOP leaders let him steal the election from Trump. Rinos betrayed America. They are tools of the Left. There is no difference between the R and the L. Just the rhetoric and lies.


    Rule 1 in the Dems Playbook, Blame the others and accuse them of doing what your doing. So much for the buck stops here. Blaming everyone and everything except himself is the MO for this illegitimately installed “president.”


    Do you recall the Obama photo taken with him carrying a book "A post American World" in his first campaign for President? Obama is still pushing for it and the policies he's using under Biden's name are all geared towards that goal.


    O'Biden is the biggest fraud and worst President in history. Millions of us don't accept his authority! We want a REAL President! We want President Trump, America First, Freedom, and Prosperity! We all know that obiden is NOT in charge, Omuslim is still running the show.


    Nobody votes except in National elections, and the education dumbing down of our Country allowing Politicians like Maxine Waters, Joe Biden, Dianne Feinstein and Mitch McConnell to stay in office are the 2 big reasons we are in a Political nightmare. This has happened over a long period of time and it's ALL intentional.

    Without the 'Covidiot' scam it would have been near impossible to install this fool as the President of the United States.

    Biden got in by the race card both times. Everything else is just distraction. Funny how wokeness empowers the straight, White, cisgender male. I want some Black props to make myself look good. Just kidding...

    Apparently that senile c!@t puppet was supposedly here in western Kentucky pretending to care about the 100+ people that died here a week ago in the tornadoes that hit over 200 miles/300+ kilometers.
    I am 39 years old and never can I remember thunderstorms, much less tornadoes in this region in December. My father is 62+ years old and has never seen the like. Growing up here in Kentucky until about the age of 10, it was usually freezing temps with ice and snow. West Kentucky weather is usually strange, but I've never seen anything like this year's weather.

    My friend in Knott told me he lost power for some time. Still, I'd rather be deep in the hills and hollers out yonder than elsewhere, if money permitted.
