DAMN YOU, BIDEN!!!


Our economies are totally tied together so your comment is actually accurate. The Canadian price of gasoline is $2.20 / liter. The price of oil is the main cause of inflation since it effects the transportation of all goods. Farmers get a triple whammy: fuel to till the fields goes up, fertilizer is produced from oil so it's price is increasing, freight to get the goods to market goes up. Canada's oil companies are mostly owned by US companies so Biden's policies effect their decisions.

Help a brother out. Which of these should I blame Biden directly for?

Mexico because they are tied pretty close to the US economy as well. NAFTA means that if one of us gets a cold we all sneeze.

Fed chair Powell breaks with Biden on inflation

“In January of 2021, inflation was at 1.4%. By December of 2021, it had risen to 7% — a fivefold increase. Now, since the war in Ukraine began in late February, the rate of inflation has risen incrementally another 1.6% to a current level of 8.6%. So again, from 7% to 8.6%.” - Senator haggerty

Hagerty asked Powell, “Given how inflation has escalated over the past 18 months, would you say that the war in Ukraine is the primary driver of inflation in America?”

“No, inflation was high before — certainly before the war in Ukraine broke out,” Powell said.

Nice “directly” qualifier. Indirectly it’s Russia since he more or less trolled them into invading Ukraine.

I have been in Florida now for six months and still have not seen a snake or alligator outside of the Everglades. I was kind of expecting to see one in the neighborhood as there is a canal right across the street from me.
We are all going to die, why procrastinate?

Go dangle your feet in the water every day. Maybe your vision will improve.

Never saw a snake
Only saw gators on a golf course or when I went kayaking on a river
