What Is Liberty? The Right to Do What You Ought
What is particularly interesting about this chart is that today, Americans’ personal financial situation is not that bad, though the trend is definitely down. It is the six-month outlook that is most troubling. They see the storm clouds building. This perception will cause purchasing decisions to turn negative and then becomes a self-fulfilling phenomenon. Politically, it also spells trouble for the Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections.
It’s worth noting that not only did the Republican’s financial victory haul happen with the media’s thumb placed firmly on the political scale in favor of Democrats, it also happened despite Democrats’ having the bully pulpit. President Biden can own the news cycle if he chooses to and possesses the biggest and loudest megaphone in the world. But for last month, much of that rhetoric fell on deaf ears.
Paging Politico: here is Ron DeSantis addressing the question of insurance at a public event this week. The issues Governor DeSantis has tackled range from tax relief to education to cancer research. Finding Ron DeSantis doing his job as a Governor is very easy even for a private citizen like myself.

Elon Musk came around because the Democrat party thought it would be a good idea to continuously piss off the richest man in the world, (and Trump). But the Democrat party can dump on Bill Maher all they want to. They can attack kindergartners for being slave owners, they can force transgenderism on kids and make parents the villain. They can ignore thousands crossing the border illegally every day. They can raise taxes, they can crash the economy. But you know what? Like a beat-up wife that won’t press charges, Bill Maher won’t step up until the Democrats have beaten him to death.
As homicides in Chicago show no sign of stopping, the demand for funerals is now bigger than the demand for baby formula. Just like a war-torn country, Chicago has now introduced a curfew. It is safer for the kids to be on the streets of Ukraine or Afghanistan than take a walk in the South Side of Chicago. While Lori Lightfoot fights racism by refusing interviews with white journalists, the city’s black population is getting exterminated by the black drug gangs. Apparently, Lori believes Tucker Carlson is not only responsible for the Buffalo shooting but also for black gangs indiscriminately spraying bullets on the streets of Chicago.
