The Annual Inflation Rate Climbed to a 13-Year High
The annual inflation rate climbed to a 13-year high of 5.4 percent in September, higher than the estimate, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Everything is costing more of your hard-earned money. I do not believe it will abate any time soon, hopefully it will not worsen, but the reality is that prices will likely continue to increase for Americans. Thanks joe…

Thanks Joe …
The NFIB’s Optimism Index decreased to 99.1 in September, down from 100.1 in August. Thanks Joe…
On Monday, oil closed above $80 per barrel, for the first time since 2014. Thanks Joe. Keep the pipelines shutdown, stop exploration.
The Biden administration is preparing to open large sections of the US coastline to wind-turbine projects as part of a plan to boost production of clean, renewable energy. Windmills are unsightly, dangerous and lethal to birds and other ocean creatures which must deal with the sounds of moving turbines. It is a waste of money, another progressive wet dream.
Mr Biden has made a promise to reduce carbon emission 100% by 2050. A new study in Nature finds that a 95% reduction in American carbon emissions by 2050 will annually cost 11.9% of GDP. To put that in perspective; total expenditure on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid came to 11.6% of GDP in 2019. The annual cost of trying to hit Biden’s target will rise to $4.4 trillion by 2050. That is more than everything the federal government is projected to take in this year in tax revenue. It breaks down to $11,300 per person per year, or almost 500 times more than what a majority of Americans is willing to pay.”
Although the US is the world’s second largest emitter of greenhouse gases right now, America’s reaching net zero would matter little for the global temperature. If the whole country went carbon-neutral tomorrow, the standard United Nations climate model shows the difference by the end of the century would be a barely noticeable reduction in temperature of 0.3-degree Fahrenheit.” WSJ
At least $4.4 trillion for that? Thanks joe…
Humanitarian Aid to Afghanistan
The idiot who is NOT my president, Joe Biden, plans on sending the Taliban millions of US dollars for “humanitarian aid” –after leaving some $85 BILLION of military equipment in the sand of Afghanistan. They have been killing Americans for 20 years. Why are we helping them? Why?
Vaccine Mandates Deplete Labor Force
Over 4 million Americans left their jobs last month as a protest to the idiotic vaccine mandates. Last weekend, Southwest Airlines cancelled over 1800 flights; they initially said it was weather (which affected only them, no other airline. Right.) related but that was an outright lie. They do not have pilots and staff.
Promoting Physical Activity for Americans Act
Why don’t the American people trust their elected politicians? Well, on Tuesday, Republican Thomas Massie of Kentucky’s 4th Congressional district provided the country with a perfect example of Washington’s duplicity. In a twitter post, Massie revealed that Congress raised the national debt limit by a whopping $480 billion by sneaking the provision that did so into a bill titled “Promoting Physical Activity for Americans Act.”
The bill is meant to act as a yearly report from the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Originally the report was supposedly to provide “physical activity recommendations for the people of the United States.” Yada, yada, yada…
In short, it has zero to do with raising the debt limit, and there’s no reason a debt-limit hike belongs there, unless Congress was trying to remind the American people of how it is wasting taxpayer money.”
These sneaky bastards do whatever they want. I am sick of it. I know the Constitution gives the House the power to raise revenues, but in the middle of the night? For an expenditure largely unpopular with the American people. To clarify: $480 billion is 480,000 millions. That is a lot of money…
Bisexual Man of Steel
DC Comics is coming out with a new Superman comic in which the Man of Steel is a bisexual. This is a load of horse shit. Superman has been a hero of mine for 65 years-at least. He was not bisexual then and he is not bisexual now. Superman loved Lois Lane, remember? Take your woke crap and shove it up your bisexual anus. Fools, a bunch of fucking fools.

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
