Classical Gas

We went searching for the least expensive gas available in the New York City area and paid $4.79 or $76.77 at BJ's to fill up two cars.

If you are an American consumer who paid a fortune at the pump this weekend, please know that Democrats recently voted to crack down on gas gouging and every single republican voted no.

ECONOMIC JOLT

Economists war that Americans and the entire world need to continue tightening our belts for the long and bumpy ride ahead.

The Federal Reserve faces the daunting task of reassuring the public that is increasingly convinced the central bank has already blown it. Slam the breaks or slow down?

When the Fed raises rates, it would imply that the banks are seeing a growth in credit disbursement. A lot of people are opting for the loan facility. So, in order to satisfy the need for credit, banks usually shift their reliance on fixed deposits. 

Kissing Up To Billionaires

Top Democrats who signaled a deal on POTUS Joe Biden's big domestic bill point out that momentum fizzled and tempers flared as a paid family leave proposal fell out of favor and so did the billionaires' tax appeared scrapped, mostly to satisfy The Demolition Duo, US Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Krysten Sinema of Arizona.

Parrot vs Patriot

Whether an individual consumer, business owner, community leader, elected or appointed official, if you are still opposed to higher minimum wages then you are just plain STUPID, don't care, and certainly DO NOT understand the engine that drives the US economy.

If you want to be a PARROT, instead of a PATRIOT, go ahead, keep "parroting" those talking points about the devastating effects a higher minimum wage would have on the economy that your political party, chamber of commerce, or other conflicted and the self-serving source is shoving down your throat!

Nowhere To Hide

The US Justice Department has finally ordered the release of Trump taxes and the truth of his dirty lies are about to be uncovered.

The Federal Government says Donald Trump's tax returns have to be turned over to Congress, which first requested them over a couple of years ago. Here’s how the stories were reported.~

BS SPACE RACE

Why does a billionaire space race have Branson and Bezos competing on spending millions on being first in outer space?

And why call it historic? This is not the first time billionaires burned through gobs of money and resources to accomplish something a monkey did 72 years ago. Wake up and face reality, folks.

A Loyal Scam

Republican National Committee donors paid big money to hear twice-impeached and a two time loser liar in Palm Beach, the "new political power center" for the GOP.

This is the difference between Grift, to obtain money illicitly as in a confidence game and Graft, is the acquisition of some gain such as money in dishonest or questionable ways. These people made a ton of money while they were supposed to be focusing on serving the public.

The Democrats vs The GOP

The United States of America is showing its dark and ugly visage which may be a reason for serious concern in the near future.

Some would say that over the last four years of the Grand Old Party was full of lies, empty promises, hot air, tax breaks for the one percent and The Wall.
