    Meanwhile....Art Robinson is going to be an Oregon State Senator. Kind of rode the Tea Party wave, became a favorite of the Merci\ers for his science background and climate change denials. Also collects urine from random strangers for experiments.

    So it is with most of us in life, or most presidential candidates. Except perhaps McCain. Palin was his biggest opponent.

    Thank you for the advice.
    There are extenuating circumstances I will omit for purposes of privacy.
    So, I am going to dump it into my rainy-day account and leave it there.
    I don't care for being guilted into spending it on crap, as Bozo wants us to do.
    If you're going to throw me money Nicholson Joker-style, I'm going to do with it as I please.

    At least they're following the new state motto: Texas, where there are more important things than living

    One of the reasons Trump won - he had no political record to defend or run from or run against.

    Old Joe's been around too long. His political record - even from 1984 - is fair game.

    I know that's the way it's supposed to be. I know having the printing presses running 24 hours is supposed to erode the dollar's purchasing power. Makes all the sense in the world.

    BUT . . . demand is non-existent in this country right now. Without demand, businesses can't jack up prices (which is what erodes your dollar). People aren't using all this money to bid up prices. All this money flying off the printing presses is going to pay rent, mortgages, food and medicine. It's not going toward cars, hotels, second homes, etc.

    So I guess my question is . . . in what way is our purchasing power being eroded NOW? What things am I not getting the same value for my $1 than I was getting six months ago?

    Aside from meat, which is a supply chain issue?

    I can’t think of anything.

    I had no idea just how much of the U.S. economy hinges on haircuts.
