Manufacturers who falsely inflate demand by slowing down manufacture and or shipping of their product and then subsequently inflate prices citing cost of manufacture are as much an enemy to the American people as anyone dropping bombs.
Today is January 20th 2021.
Today is inauguration day.
Gas before the election was $2.00 per gallon. Locally, its about $2.25 per gallon.
Interest rates are 2.25 percent for a 30 year mortgage.
The stock market closed at 30829.40 though we have been fighting COVID for 11 months.
Our GDP growth for the 3rd Qtr was 33.1 percent.
We had the best economy ever until COVID and it is recovering well.
We have not had any new wars or conflicts in the last 4 years.
North Korea has been under control and has not been testing any missiles.
ISIS has not been heard from for over 3 years.
The housing market is the strongest it has been in years.
Homes have appreciated at an unbelievable rate and sell well.
And let’s not forget that peace deals in the Middle East were signed by 4 countries—unprecedented!
Unemployment sits at 6.7% in spite of COVID.
Let’s see how fast the new crop in Washington DC screws this up.
This just warms my heart.
I am sitting here tonight thinking about anger. Not my anger. But the anger that the patriots must have felt leading up to April 19, 1775. And how they absolutely reached the point of shedding the blood of other human beings for their liberties.
The English soldiers were doing their job. Just doing their job. But their blood was spilled on our soil.
I think about December 9, 2020. And how many citizens within our country are flapping their gums on social media. Keyboard commandos. Beating their chests and speaking out against the current state of affairs. But I wonder.
If the limit of your heart is what you can pound out on a keyboard, you need to sit the fuck down and shut up. You are not impressing me. You are laughable. Lazyboy lazy boys.

It’s just a mask. Don’t be a jerk. It’s for the greater good.
It’s just a vaccine. Don’t be a jerk. It’s for the greater good.
In four months, the United States was transformed into an obedient socialist country. The government dictated what events were acceptable to attend. Violent protests that instill fear are OK, but church services, family funerals and patriotic events are dangerous. AND YOU BOUGHT IT! Without a fight.
Standing in a graduation line is a safety hazard. Small businesses were forced to close, but crowds to support the corporate money machine at Walmart, Home Depot and Lowe’s are OK. Come on! It’s just a mask and safety precautions.
How about a little hush money? Here’s $2400 we stole out of your paycheck in the first place. Enjoy. Buy something with it from a big corporation.
Cash is dirty. We can’t give change. There is a coin shortage. Use your card. In four months, they convinced you to use a traceable card. For EVERYTHING.
In less than four months, government closed public schools, and completely restructured public education under the guise of public safety.
In less than four months, the government demonstrated how easily people assimilate to guidelines that have no scientific premise whatsoever! When you are fearful.
In less than four months, the government has successfully instilled fear in the majority of the population of America that allows them to control every aspect of your life including what you eat, where you go, who you see and your toilet paper.
And the most terrifying part? They are not afraid of the government who removed their freedom. They are afraid of their neighbors, family and friends and they hate those that will not comply. It’s absolutely terrifying to me that people don’t question authority. They are willing to surrender their critical thinking skills and independence. They just gave up without thinking… without a fight.
Do you know what’s coming next? It’s just a vaccine. It’s for the greater good. Wait until you are told you can’t enter any store or business without PROOF of a Covid 19 vaccine. Wait until you can’t go to public events, or get on a plane without proof of a Covid 19 vaccine. Don’t think it’s possible?
You’re already allowing the government to tell you when you can go outside, where you are allowed to go and blindly accepted a new unproven digital education for your kids in the last 120 days.
You followed blindly because you were told to do so.
You’re kidding yourself if you don’t think the next mass behavior won’t be repeated with a vaccine or whatever the next step is.
I don’t follow politics. I don’t care about that stuff. I don’t think about it.
Six million Jewish people were killed in Nazi Germany because 97% of the population cowered to populace control. Nobody wanted to think about it. It’s easier just to ignore.
But that couldn’t happen here, in America, right?
They got you. Without a thought. Without a fight. Just like France. Just like Russia. Just like China.
