    Yeah, I saw that. What do they want the Fed to do exactly? Print money and buy windmills? How is any of even remotely the responsibility of the federal reserve? One of the dumbest comments she's ever made and that's saying something.

    Yeah I was reading some recent articles about SS running out of money earlier than they thought. Whenever I read blatantly wrong stuff like that is gives me more confidence that I'm right. The SS trust fund never had any money in it. All they have are treasury notes which is the same as nothing because it's simultaneously and asset and a liability. It's the same as writing a check to yourself. If I write a check to you it's an asset to you (and a liability to me). But if I write a check to myself it an asset and a liability so it cancels itself out. What gets me is that it's not a secret conspiracy, it's right out in the open but they still claim there's "money in the trust fund".

    I understand why you think it's not a secret.



    But as far as the propagandists are concerned, anything they haven't said this week is so completely forgotten that it is secret. Even stuff we've known for more than a century, like vitamin C fights a cold, and don't lie flat when you have chest congestion or you might get pneumonia.

    The sad thing is, for a large swath of the population, they're right.

    Inflation is taking off. I noticed some small grocery items have really gone up. $1 up to $3. $2.25 up to $2.50. $1.99 up to $3.99, etc.

    They really screw the poorest people the most.

    According to the CPI, rent is only up about 2% over the last year.

    According to rental companies like Zillow it's up about 15-20%.

    The way they're printing money and the way they are screwing landlords I'm guessing rent prices are just getting started.

    I was shocked at fresh chicken prices at the store the other day. Beef already high and pork climbing also but chicken has jumped big time over the last month. Must be coincidence that meat prices are rising faster than other products....yeah that's it, coincidence. Definitely not the plant-based diet (and eventually bugs) agenda.

    I think what is most shocking is it is still going up . They are doomed to suffer a 15 percent loss most likely on the ol 401K while costs rise up to 50 percent over 2018 levels and everyone will act all surprised.

    Sorry, Peasants

    Tax the rich, right??!

    National rent growth continues to accelerate at an alarming pace. While prices were generally static during 2020, they’ve risen dramatically in 2021. Relative to March 2020, the median one-bedroom rent nationally is up 10.7 percent, while two-bedrooms are up even more at 13.1 percent.

    Biden approval rating is 31 percent in Iowa . That seems a little high . We'll see after a cold winter with 3 1/3 dollar gas , 6 dollar nat gas and no Christmas gifts for the poor how that plays out . biden already below Trumps lowest in the state.
