We shouldn't need to turn schools into Fort Knox in order to keep them safe.

I feel like people who know guns should create their own policy group. "Gun Owners for Smart Gun Control" or something like that. Maybe people can create gun control that can save lives without being overly restrictive.

It not even really their normal caliber of jokes either. Its just like "look! aren't trans people weird?". It feels so unfunny and edges on cruel.

There's a lot of different redesigns going around. These are... not my favorite. There are very cool ones tho. I do hope we get a change.

Political scientist and sociologists know they deal in a world of incomplete information and accept that they can never get around the daily surprises. Economists and historians really think they have the answers and can dole out prescriptions.

tradingeconomics.com/country… As far as I can tell this data seems reliable, and they cite their sources. I could be wrong tho.

So I looked at OECD's data on inflation changes. Other countries also had jumps in inflation around the same time we did, irrespective of the American Rescue plan. I think I disagree with the article you posted. But I am a bit out of my league here. stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?Da…

The fact that tweets simping over billionaires or spreading complete bullshit get so much attention always depresses me.

Considering the UK under a conservatives PM is having high inflation, it doesn't make much sense to blame spending. And I think a number of economists agree that it was not the major cause.

A lot of it has to do with monetary policy, something congress and Biden have little to no control over.

Wait when did he even do? He's not responsible for inflation (every country on earth is experiencing it). He didn't cause the shortages. What did he even directly cause that was bad? Afghanistan? I can see people blaming him for that at least.

Idk why the US expect their presidents to be super heros who can solve all the countries problems when in reality the executive branch is far more limited then we think.

40 billion is not a huge portion of the US budget. Very very little of what u pay in taxes went to Ukraine. Investing in Ukraine will also help reduce food prices. Considering they are one of the largest food producers. Your tax money is being well spent in this case.
