Yes Bill, Obama Care was another BS globalist creation to help shrink the American middle class. If anyone was able to read and complete the 2200 plus pages of complete BS, you are now either brain dead or mentally broken, as are most of America’s leaders( not that anyone of them read it, they were just hired that way) 🤔…. Anyway, I did try to retire last year, and enjoy the fruits of my 50 years of hard labor. Because of my wife’s very small business, we had to pay $2200 a month for our “Affordable Care BS” and I just refuse to do that…so I will continue to labor, and do what a man does to survive, while continuing to support the many millions of not so hard workers, along with 6 plus million illegals our brilliant politicians have sent to us. More BS?, not according to democrats 🤔

We need a recession, but we ain’t gonna get one! Our government can’t allow a recession because it would mean “holy hell” unleashed on them.

Let’s all be patient while the next administration is setup for failure in 2024.

Should be politics at it’s worst.

In the meantime. My gasoline, groceries and utilities go inflate higher & higher.

And we collectively borrow more so the whole stinking carcass gets much larger.

If I could I would slug the politicians in the mouth. Totally inept politicians.

Thanks democrats!

"outsourcing the dirty work to places most people can find on a map."

Did you mean to say "can't find"?

For being “Thrown in a heap” you still are tidier and smarter than most. Thanks.

And as for Inflation in the Pampas if the dark-horse candidate could come up with a catchy slogan related to “Jav-Mi” ....our bushy side-burned bandito might persuade the masses to “Have Him”.

( Yes...translation elegance might be tricky. But the English speaking press should have a field day.)

Have you read the book “The Great Taking”? It’s an informative book that explains how the laws have quietly been changed to allow people’s stock securities and bonds to be legally confiscated by the banksters during a financial meltdown. Parallel Systems on YouTube covers the book very well.

‘The median man in 2023 earns the same real, median wage he did in 1975.’

The reality of 2023, is the family household income vs 1975, have greater 2 full/part time income contributors to family earnings, for ‘wealth’ creation.

If they have been mindful family spenders and budgeted appropriately, they’ve often been able to be better heeled, even a little capitalist type initiatives to boot !

Based on recent US government data (https://www.eia.gov/outlooks/aeo/narrative/index.php#ExecutiveSummary), the United States uses roughly 20 million barrels of crude oil per day as of 2022. The US Strategic Petroleum Reserve is authorized to hold 714 million barrels of oil which is a 35 day supply of oil in an emergency. Current levels (June 2023) are roughly 347 million barrels which is a 17 day supply (https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/hist/LeafHandler.ashx?n=pet&s=mcsstus1&f=m). World crude oil usage is about 100 million barrels per day.

Thank for this Joel. “According to a report out today by the International Energy Agency, global oil demand is eclipsing supply by 1.2 million barrels per day which is causing record inventory draws. Unless there’s a recession, or OPEC opens the taps again, oil prices should keep rising.”

I appreciate consistency. Particularly news. Here’s one:

“Another FDIC-Insured Bank Is Teetering, Closing at 27-1/2 Cents Yesterday, Down 96 Percent in a Year” By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: September 14, 2023 ~https://wallstreetonparade.com/2023/09/another-fdic-insured-bank-is-teetering-closing-at-27-1-2-cents-yesterday-down-96-percent-in-a-year/

There may be a lesson here: don’t put the word “Republic” in the name of your bank; don’t hold a lot of uninsured deposits; and don’t have wads of unrealized losses on your investment securities. If those lessons sound familiar, it’s because they played out in stunning fashion earlier [...]

This, just for the heck of it, a stock chart FRBK ... https://schrts.co/uEISYfrc - The holding company of the current problem bank is Republic First Bancorp (trading ticker FRBK), whose federally-insured banking unit is Republic Bank. Wow! Highest trading volume going back to...1998? I wonder. The actually stock certificates must be really pretty engraved masterpieces and all those certificates now in drawers at the transfer agent waiting to be put to use a collectible wallpaper?

The truth may not set you free, but will make you mad as Hell. Appreciate BPR truth seekers and integrity. TGIF & Tequila! And maybe Malbec to wash it down.

Has anyone at BPR ever researched what percentage of your investment portfolio you would have to have in XOP to even come close to offsetting the increase in the price of oil?

Tucker Carlson’s exchange of $100 into Argentina’s fiat was a one-sided view. Actual use of that exchanged fiat in Argentina gives more insight to American readers.
