The US Is A Powder Keg

The US Is A Powder Keg

“Shrinkflation” (the shrinking weight of the products while the price for the package remains the same) is an epidemic right now, as manufacturers are struggling to survive huge increases in their own costs. In the coming month, millions of jobs could be affected by this with protests growing in every city. To top it off, making all the above much worse, the vaccination is now coming for the kids. Mandates will surely follow. You want revolution in this country? This is a good way to foment one.

Pre-2020 Prices Are Gone Forever

Pre-2020 Prices Are Gone Forever

Price inflation is completely out of hand. You know this. Your dog knows it too. Still, President Joe Biden wants you to believe he’s got it all under control. Deficits of $5.9 trillion over the 24 months ending September 30, 2021, and a Fed balance sheet expansion of nearly $5 trillion over the same period, have irrevocably damaged the entire pricing structure of the financial system and the economy. Pre-2020 prices are gone forever.

Government Should Not Be Spared from the Austerity It Is Inflicting on Society

So far millions in the private sector have lost their jobs or have been furloughed—but not many in government have.

Their agencies most certainly will not have as much work to do since major portions of the economy are closing down. Many agencies won’t even be needed any longer, but you better believe they will continue to be funded and probably expanded over time. That is outrageous. As we suffer economically, government should not be exempted.

America Is a Technocracy, Not a Democracy

Perhaps never before in American history have the unelected technocrats played such an enormous role in shaping public policy in America. [In Washington] The real policymaking takes place among unelected experts, who decide for themselves—with minimal oversight or control from actual elected officials—what will happen in terms of public policy. The people who really run the country are these experts and bureaucrats at the central banks, at public health agencies, intelligence agencies and an expanding network of boards and commissions.

Calculating The Californication Of America

Beset by high housing costs, crippling taxes, astronomical gas prices, wildfires, and rolling blackouts, Californians are heading for the exits. That’s sparking anxiety in places where these Golden State migrants are relocating. Much of this anxiety revolves around fears that the migrants will transform the politics and culture of the places that they’re moving to—bringing an appetite for big, intrusive government. But a new survey suggests that, while plenty of people are looking to leave California, many are fleeing the state’s high costs and politics and may not be interested in voting for the same things in their new homes.
