Have you looked out the window lately? Has anyone filled up with gas, or went to the grocery store, or been shopping? How about watching the news? Wouldn’t recommend it, frankly.
Things are bad, folks. Very bad. Millions of Americans are suffering, struggling to gas up, and feed their kids, not to mention things on the horizon, like school shopping.
We start the day knowing we went from the best economy known to man under Trump straight to a recession in (17) mo’s under Biden

These are strange days. The economy is crap and this failed administration is more concerned with placing blame, optics, and LGBTQ issues than anything real that affects everyday folks like us.
That’s why it’s SHOCKING when ANYONE thinks the economy is good.
Apparently, some folks still do. Per the New York Post:
More than 8 in 10 Americans believe the state of the US economy under President Biden is bleak — and many are concerned about their own finances amid soaring inflation rates, food and gas prices, according to a new poll.
The Wall Street Journal-NORC survey released Monday found that 83% of respondents described the national economy as “poor” or “not so good.”
Yes, I know it’s only 2 out of 10 that think the economy is good, but that number is truly shocking! One can only assume that two percent is either people being smart asses, trolling the pollsters, or already filthy rich. No one with a functioning brain can possibly think things are good.
“Not so good” btw is how you feel after eating the pride Whopper, not how you describe the economy. That’s being way too generous.
More than a third who answered the survey — 35% — said they aren’t satisfied at all with their financial situation, marking the highest level of dissatisfaction in 50 years.
And the share of poll respondents who said their financial situation had gotten worse in the past few years was 38% — the highest since the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis.
Does anyone remember 2008? Those were scary times. What was the other similarity? Oh, yea a Democrat administration. Coincidence? Well, the left would have you believe so. However, with the exception of Bill Clinton, who was a hardcore centrist, all of our Democrat administrations have put us underwater in my lifetime. Carter, Obama, now Biden. Weird coincidence.
Jennifer Benz, vice president of public affairs and media research at NORC, said America’s poor outlook on the economy is being driven by skyrocketing inflation, which hit a 40-year high of 8.3% in April.
The poll comes just days after President Biden said Americans are more “financially comfortable” and carry less debt since he was sworn into office.
In a speech in early May, Biden sought to reassure an increasingly grumbling public that he is “taking inflation very seriously” and has made it his “top domestic priority”.
What’s maddening about Joe and his band of merry idiots is his willingness to just plain lie.
How are Americans more financially comfortable? Is it those low, low gas prices? Maybe the affordable housing? The super cheap grocery bills?
Nope, folks this senile old coot in the White House is completely out of touch. Don’t buy the lies he and his administration are trying to sell. Probably too expensive anyway!
