    "No. We have several things going on with inflation. There is a war yes. There has been increased demand for goods. There was a lot of money created (but who got it, well not overwhelmingly Joe Average who had a bit of a savings bump that has now disappeared, but it doesn't mean someone didn't). There might also be pure price gouging going on as well, I don't know.

    They are shills pushing for more oil drilling. And we should not be doing more oil drilling."


    This is a worldwide phenomenon; not everything wrong with the planet is President Biden's fault.

    Appeasement doesn't work. Even if a country caved to the invaders, the invaders would only be emboldened to demand more and more. I'm tired of apologists for Russia, personally.

    I believe the traditional phrase is "useful idiot".

    Wait, so it's not biden's fault that oil and gas have gone up in price all across the globe? Next you're going to tell me that inflation around the globe has cranked up on lots of other stuff too because of Biden. And, oh my god, that the oil companies had significantly bigger profits in Q1 2022 than they did in Q1 2021 because, well, because they could because of biden somehow. Surely all that must be the president's fault. If only he had socialized baby formula and drilling leases and forced the FDA to allow tainted formula to be sold to families and forced oil companies to use the drilling leases they already had none of any of this would have occurred. But wait, socialism is bad, so no, he shouldn't have socialized baby formula or oil company drilling plans. Oh geez, now my head is spinning because so much of this is just obviously dumb-****ery committed by people with an agenda.

    I guess on the plus side at least biden hasn't told ukraine to suck it up and allow some of their citizens to become forced Russians. I suppose Russian apologists will try to claim that it would be a good thing somehow because, you know, Daddy America (close relative of Nanny G who gets to tell the wimmin what to do with their bodies) knows best.

    Kissinger is high-enough profile to get an upgrade to "asset."

    What an adorable car! It almost makes me nostalgic for my little blue VW. Almost.
