    Feel free not to. You are one of the most ill-informed posters here and trying to correct you is tiresome.

    When Bush was POTUS a strong stock market and low employment was proof that he was working for big business and not the American people. I bet with democrat in charge now its something different.

    No, I think with Bush it was that he basically appointed a bunch of industry lobbyists to important positions in govt. More than typical even for a Republican. With Bush that also ended badly with 2 wars and financial collapse.

    Trump, despite promising to “Drain the Swamp” had even more lobbyists in his govt than Bush! At the end his “inner circle” in the White House basically boiled down to either his family or to criminals. Lobbyist hacks like Chao and Devos were just there for the corruption, they didn’t sign up for insurrection.

    See? I was right. Identical results but completely different in theory.

    What "skyrocketing inflation" are you talking about?

    Yet More Inflation Mummery This Morning – Kevin Drum

    he Washington Post reports today that "Recovery’s stumbles leave Americans confronting unfamiliar inflation risk." But if you make it down to the 12th paragraph, you learn this:

    To date, the increase in inflation remains modest. Comparing current prices to those one year ago also overstates what’s actually in the economy. During the pandemic’s first months, many prices — including for hotel rooms, airplane tickets and men’s suits — collapsed. So year-over-year comparisons exaggerate the degree of change. Such distortions will become less significant over the remainder of this year.

    So inflation is modest, and even at that it's exaggerated, but we're going to run a story about inflation fears anyway. wtf, people?
