President Biden to release 9 days’ worth of oil from strategic reserves… over the next 6 months

Economic professor suggests price controls to curb inflation

Talk about idiotic. How do these people get economic degrees, let alone a professorship in the subject, when they have nonsense ideas like price controls.

What’s a 3% dip in the stock market? The news is blaming the latest COVID variant… ooooooo so scary. Nothing to worry about. Nothing to see here. It’s simply a 3% discount on all the stocks you want to buy. Heck… use some of that stimulus money and gamble...

The Whitehouse’s tweet says a cookout in 2021 costs $0.16 less than in 2020. Trying to tamp down inflation fears by saying prices are not rising. If you look at the source of the information used in their misleading video they say the price of that cookout is 8%...

Technology rapidly replacing restaurant staff

Minimum wage increase cause business to compensate… Go Figure!

File this under DUH! A business exists to make money. If it doesn’t make money it goes out of business. That’s it… end of story. When the cost of labor goes up the business’ profit goes down unless adjustments are made. One of two things have to happen. Either...
