We are having a climate emergency. I am sure it’s true because important people have said so. These are the same people who have been wrong about everything of late: solving crime, COVID, printing money, and energy transitions, to name a few. They have pushed a half-century’s worth of climate predictions — all of which I have managed to live through — from acid rain to Manhattan being underwater by 2015. They also travel around on private jets and yachts when they are not living in their massive waterfront properties, because they are the safest places to live in an emergency, obviously.
Yes, I am sure there’s an emergency, but it’s an emergency of indulging people entirely uncoupled with reality.
The “boy who cried wolf” routine isn’t cute, it’s destructive. People who are in charge of major decisions have bullied their ways into having their fantasy narratives accepted and acted upon. Large cities and even non-urban locales are experiencing outbreaks of crime because the fantasy crowd said it was mean to enforce laws. They wanted to defund the police and go easy on criminals, which, entirely unpredictably, has empowered the criminals. Stores are being robbed, people are getting attacked and car jacked, and overall, violence is increasing. Even Starbucks is closing stores in formerly desirable locales like Santa Monica, California, and Union Station in Washington D.C., for Pete’s sake!
We were told that printing trillions of dollars and injecting trillions of dollars more of stimulus money into a supply-constrained economy — one that was supply-constrained because those who shut it down didn’t realize there would be consequences — wasn’t going to produce any inflation. Then, we were told inflation was going to be transitory. Then, it was the consumer’s fault and greedy businesses’ fault, all before blaming Vladimir Putin even when inflation hit a 40-year high the month prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Now, individuals and small businesses alike have to contend with labor shortages, supply chain disruptions, and massive inflation that are all threatening their financial security.
We were told that we have to transition to “green” energy and start to execute a full-scale plan when there was no “green” replacement available at scale or at a viable cost. They said this without a plan and without any consideration of the most clean energy source widely available: nuclear energy. This has led to not only sky-high energy costs in the U.S. but to our president begging countries like Saudi Arabia to produce more oil. This is the “green” equivalent of believing that an unpartitioned smoking section works. And, given that global demand for energy will only increase, this is also not a transition to “green” energy, it’s a transition of our economic and national security into the hands of bad actors around the globe.
You can be a good steward of the planet and its resources and still be in touch with reality.
Now, because they have put everything else in disarray and have nothing to fall back on for their power and money grab, the climate emergency has come out of the playbook.
Whenever liberals attain power it turns into an emergency.
I predicted this.
joe is trying to alter the definition of “Recession,” so his own crappy economy will not be tagged with that term.
July 26th or 28th we find out if this “Holistic” approach to defining the economy is adopted by “the Board.”
We are, officially, in a Recession. It’s been planned, and they merely need to keep enough of the sheep on the Left in the US and other Wester Nations on the Woke reservation as they move forward with the Great Reset.
If they got even a quarter of their cult members to wipe the scales from their eyes, they’d be ousted within 5 seconds.
A Convention of States can’t come soon enough.
The top 1% now own almost 1/3 of all American wealth, want still more, and are buying the political power to get it. That can only happen by scrapping Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and nutritional programs. That’s the elephant in the room.
Really, Comrade Greggie? Care to prove that claim? Or is it just another one of your claims that when asked to document (prove)it, you run like the pathetic rabbit you are?
John D. Rockefeller was worth (in today’s dollars) $340 BILLION in 1935. What was the national wealth in 1935?
And with others like Andrew Carnegie, Vanderbilt and J.P. Morgan owning hundreds of billions of dollars more in American wealth, can you explain how the Democrats managed to pass Medicare, Medicaid and nutritional programs in spite of that?
But hey, you want to show how you just pick some idiotic comment you read on line and the mimic it because you think it will make you look smart, have at it. Of course, you will also ignore that the billionaires of today (like Mark Zuckerberg) donate to the Democrat (Socialist) Party.
it is easier for greggie to think his comments make him look smart than for his comments to be smart.
The top one percent vote Democrat. They install candidates, they pay $400 million to set up shadow election systems, they are from other countries, own mega-corps and banks, and tied to our government and are LEFTIST in every way shape and form.
The top 1% are Leftists. They create the crises, exploit the crises, then blame the crises on their political enemies because people like greg are too f*cking ignorant to use their brains for even one second.
Buy political power??? THEY’VE ALREADY BOUGHT IT. SEE: Installed former VP Biden and the covid-19 pandemic, rigged election, and J6th false-flag.
All paid for by the 1% that you represent. Crony Capitalism – it’s what Democrats do.
Why does this admin want to redefine recession? The democrat party a few years ago revamped the inflation calculation, removing gas and groceries. Reality is what it is not changed metrics, I know you believe them, but were only briefly out of Bushes recession just before January 2020, Europe still has negative interest rates. Has your TV shown the world wide riots, and protests? Centralized government in a nutshell.
