    So if the inflation rate dropped as shown above is that not really better for all rather than just a slight increase in the minimum wage ?

    Is the spending graph above comparing dollars spent with the inflation rate included ? If it is just dollars it is more misleading than if it was comparative to dollars with accounting for inflation.

    So far how much has been spent in the two years of this administration ? Anyone know ?

    One last question, we didn't have 5 billion dollars to spend on addng to the wall at the southern border and it was stopped because "they" wouldn't authorize the money. I wonder what we have spent trying to stop the invasion across the border and what we have spent housing, supplying phone, transporting, and medical care for those here illegally camping out in Texas and Arizona. We certainly have plenty of money to spend on that and money to give to Ukraine.
    Trump left office after increasing the debt from about $20 Trillion to just under $28 Trillion. Biden is at over $31 Trillion. Last year taxes brought in $4 Trillion and democrats and republicans spent $7 Trillion.....thats a lot of borrowing and printing $$$$$. As debt goes up, taxes have to go up, as more $$$ printed so goes inflation. But I'm told its all Putins fault by reliable sources. You can't launder money at the border with a wall, Ukraine and other countries is where your politicians make their pocket $$$$...priorities. As Rand Paul said its not if the $ collapses, its just a matter of when. I see no turning back at this post no matter who is in office. Newt Gingrich pretty mush said this is last chance a R controlled house can step up and balance the budget...which hasn't been done since Newt controlled the House in Clinton era. I don't see the R doing this, they rarely stop spending and taking $$$ under the table. They will go after Hunter and Biden, and do smoke screens and spend just as much if not more and increase the debt......prove me wrong, its what both parties record shows year to year. Its a giant free for all. Imagine all those idiots at Walmart getting into fist fights on Black Friday.....I give you D.C.

    A thought occurred to me. I used to think, like so many others, that George Orwell was right wing. He was a die-in-the-wool socialist /communist. He just happened to also be patriotic to a degree, and care about the future for mankind, and wrote things like Animal Farm and 1984, as a warning against the evil he saw growing.
    Left wing socialist. He actually warned and hated communism. Espically Stalin. 1984 and Animal House were about Marxism and totatarism I believe. Seems today we have to be worried about his own ideology as the threat now of taking over. But would like to learn more of him.

    To most people a bump stock is a hunk of plastic, not an arm that one can bear. Only a small number of us see it as an infringement. That is a huge difference even to me as it is not banning a gun…
    I get it, it's a toy. But the AFT disagrees with you, they treat them as NFA firearms. Also, that's a super slippery slope, and braces/3d printed guns/triggers/etc are already starting to slip to the same fate.

    It's the principle that matters.

    And why is the NRA complicit?

    "Shall not be infringed" does not allow exceptions (infringments)!

    Nov 14, 2022 — WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday again declined to hear a lawsuit involving a Trump-era ban on bump stocks.

    That toy plastic is now considered in the same class as a full auto weapon. It can't shoot as a gun but is a felony. So that piece of plastic toy is a machine gun....the ATF and Trump say so. Trump caved, I know gun owners that didn't and won't ever vote him back in. It was just another appeasement to get the other side to vote for you and they didn't, now you got your side not voting for you.
