When Will The Damn Well Run Dry?

I am talking about the seemingly endless funds being funneled into Ukraine….

To answer my own question….it will apparently never run dry….no matter how many Americans will suffer from the waste of dollars.

I recently read that Biden has a plan to speed up the aid to Ukraine..

Really?

I think it is  moving damn fast without some legislation that will make it even faster to piss away taxpayer dollars….but I am a minority and the plan is moving forward….

On the day Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a restrained Victory Day speech in Moscow, President Biden signed into law an updated version of the Lend-Lease program that helped the Allies—including the Soviet Union—defeat Nazi Germany in World War II. This time, Lend-Lease will be used against Russia. “Every day Ukrainians fight for their lives,” Biden said at the signing ceremony Monday in the Oval Office, the New York Times reports. “The cost of the fight is not cheap, but caving to aggression is even more costly.”

The program will allow the US to send equipment and supplies to Ukraine more quickly to help it turn back the invasion. It gives Biden the ability to reach agreements with Ukraine and other Eastern European countries more quickly, per the Washington Post. “It’s important to note that it’s about time,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said about the plan last month. “Time is very important when lives are at stake.” Passage was a bipartisan effort; the vote in the Senate was unanimous. Biden’s request for another extra $33 billion in aid for Ukraine is pending in Congress.

It is official!

The dollars will fly out of treasury and our gutless Congress gave it wings….

President Biden on Monday signed a bill into law reviving the World War II-era lend-lease program for Ukraine, paving the way for an escalation in US military aid to Kyiv.

The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022 allows Biden to send weapons to Ukraine free of charge while technically requiring payment at a later date. Under the lend-lease act during World War II, the US sent billions of dollars in weapons to the Soviet Union, China, Britain, and other allies.

The legislation received massive bipartisan support in Congress, passing by voice vote in the Senate and by a vote of 417-10 in the House, with only Republicans voting against the bill.

According to a summary of the bill, it waives “certain requirements related to the President’s authority to lend or lease defense articles if the defense articles are intended for Ukraine’s government or the governments of other Eastern European countries affected by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.”

The bill’s signing comes after President Biden asked Congress for $33 billion in new aid for Ukraine, including $20.4 billion in military assistance. He has nearly exhausted the funds for arms shipments to Kyiv from a $13.6 billion Ukraine aid package that was included in a spending bill he signed in March.

President Biden waited until Monday to sign the bill since May 9 is the day Russia marks its victory day for the Soviet defeat of the Nazis in 1945. Ironically, the Soviet Union was one of the largest beneficiaries of US military aid under the lend-lease act during World War II.

At what point is enough enough?

But those Dems have gone one further….

Congressional Democrats drafted a plan to raise President Biden’s $33 billion aid request for Ukraine to $39.8 billion, which the House could pass as soon as Tuesday.

Biden’s $33 billion request included $20.4 billion for military aid. According to Bloomberg, Congress is adding $3.4 billion in military aid and $3.4 billion in humanitarian assistance.

Democrats initially wanted to include the Ukraine aid with additional COVID-19 funding, but Biden told lawmakers to separate the two packages. “We cannot afford delay in this vital war effort. Hence, I am prepared to accept that these two measures move separately so that the Ukrainian aid bill can get to my desk right away,” he said in a statement Monday.

Giving aid to Ukraine has strong bipartisan support in Congress, but Republicans have yet to sign on to the Democrats’ plan since they are seeking a larger increase. Republicans want to add $8 billion, while the draft plan drawn up by Democrats increased the aid by about $6.8 billion.

If the $39.8 billion plan is passed, it will bring total US aid for Ukraine in 2022 alone to over $53 billion. To put the enormous figure into perspective, Russia’s entire military budget for 2021 was estimated to be about $65.9 billion.

Why can’t these spineless tools in Congress find that much compassion and bi-partisanship for the people of this country?

This BS makes me want to vomit!

Somethings Are Inevitable

These days there is nothing to actually to look forward to….but the new color ‘discovered’ by Apple, the big innovation by the company for its iPhone….the color green….how’s that for innovation?

But that is just my rant…..the president has given us something to look forward to in the near future…..

President Biden warned that the US-led Western sanctions campaign against Russia will lead to “real” food shortages across the world.

“With regard to food shortage, yes, we did talk about food shortages. And — and it’s going to be real,” Biden said at a press conference in Brussels. “The price of these sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia, it’s imposed upon an awful lot of countries as well, including European countries and our country as well.”

Biden’s sanctions on Russia come as the US is facing a 40-year high inflation rate and record-high gas prices. Although he tried to blame the inflation on what he called “Putin’s price hike,” Biden has admitted before that Americans will feel economic pain because of the sanctions he imposed, which include a ban on Russian oil imports.

So far, the Western sanctions have done nothing to slow Russia’s attack on Ukraine and have not deterred Russian President Vladimir Putin. When confronted with this fact, Biden snapped at a reporter and said deterrence isn’t the point, and signaled that he expects the war to go on for a long time.

“Sanctions never deter. The maintenance of sanctions — the maintenance of sanctions, the increasing the pain, and the demonstration — why I asked for this NATO meeting today — is to be sure that after a month, we will sustain what we’re doing not just next month, the following month, but for the remainder of this entire year. That’s what will stop him,” he said.

Oh goody….higher food prices and shortages…..now that is something to thank this war for….

This situation does not bode well for Biden and the Dems going forward…..

One more thing to look forward to….the 2024 presidential election is a mere 2 years away….and the polls, I know it is early but it is something to consider,  have ex-president ahead of the sitting president…..47 to 41 percent….time to pay attention is NOW!

It’s Putin’s Fault (Why Not?)

Inflation is soaring in this country, maybe the world, and now we have a brand new excuse…..It is Putin’s fault.

Just Stop It!

Let’s be honest…..2021 was a banner year for the oil industry alone…..

While millions of working people have been hurt by surging gas prices, a new analysis out Tuesday shows that 25 of the world’s biggest fossil fuel corporations collectively pulled in an “eye-popping” $205 billion in profits last year—and Big Oil is exploiting Russia’s war on Ukraine to charge even more at the pump in 2022 and advance its financial interests.

(commondreams.org)

We here in the US blame so many others for our growing problems…..for the GOP it is Biden’s fault or Clinton or Dems…..the Dems along with Biden are blaming the Ukrainian conflict and Putin as the culprit….

“Today’s inflation report,” US president Joe Biden told us on March 10, “is a reminder that Americans’ budgets are being stretched by price increases and families are starting to feel the impacts of Putin’s price hike.”

It’s the latest in a long line of dodges on the causes of US inflation, which took a dive in early 2020, then began its steady climb toward the current official rate of 7.9%.

The first explanation was that inflation increases were “transitory.” That explanation made sense. Or would have, anyway, if Congress and the Biden administration had brought government borrowing and spending levels back to pre-COVID-19 levels. Instead, they decided to go bigger. When the causes aren’t “transitory,” the effects won’t be either.

Because Biden and Congress were unwilling to rein in borrowing and spending (requiring the Federal Reserve to continue flooding the economy with newly created money), new excuses were required.

Next came “well, if you really think about it, inflation is GOOD – look, higher wages!” And, the US Labor Department did report an average pay increase 4.7% in 2021. But since prices jumped by at least 7%, those “higher wages” actually amounted to significant pay cuts.

(antiwar.com)

Inflation is caused by increasing the money supply faster than society increases its production of goods and services for sale. Everything else is an effect, not a cause.

Vladimir Putin came to Biden’s rescue and gave him yet another lame excuse to draw out pain instead of facing, and acting on, the truth.

Keep in mind that inflation was high before the invasion of Ukraine….and now Biden has an excuse he can use to the benefit of the greed of corporations.

All this ‘found’ cash over a $1 billion to send to Ukraine will just add to the deficit and give the GOP a weapon to be used in campaigns…..and the next Congress will have to face this question and the debate to cut social services will be the game of the day.

In other words the people of the US will pay the price for all our ‘support’ for Ukraine and their struggle against Russia.

For Christ sake…..stop worrying about a world away and start caring about your neighbors for they are far more important.

Sadly most of this will fall on deaf ears for few Americans actually care about their neighbors or their countrymen.

It is pathetic!

More Money….More Money….More Money

As could be predicted the US warmongers will make the case that the answer to the Ukraine/Russia mash-up will be more taxpayer money thrown into the fray.

White House asked Congress for $6.4 billion for military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine and to help US allies in Europe to bolster their security in response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

According to Bloomberg, $2.9 billion will go towards security and humanitarian assistance for Ukraine, the Baltics, Poland, and other regional countries. The remaining $3.5 billion will go to the Pentagon “to respond to the crisis.”

The total amount could change as the White House and Congress work it out. Some members of Congress think more money needs to be spent. Sen. Chris Coon (D-DE) said the US might need to spend around $10 billion to respond to Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

(antiwar.com)

Over the past year, the US has given Ukraine over $650 million in military aid and $52 million in humanitarian assistance. The Pentagon said Friday it wants to send more weapons to Ukraine and is working out ways to do so.

The United States is providing Ukraine with US$350 million (S$473.71 million) in additional military equipment to fight off Russia’s “brutal and unprovoked assault”. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced on Saturday (Feb 26).

“This package will include further lethal defensive assistance to help Ukraine address the armored, airborne and other threats it is now facing,” Mr Blinken said in a statement.

The justification for the aid has varied. Some have made the case that U.S. military assistance to Ukraine can change Russia’s calculus now, possibly deterring Moscow from launching an attack. Others claim that aid to the Ukrainian military can have a real impact on a possible fight with the Russians, making it meaningfully more challenging for the Kremlin to achieve victory and ruling out certain military options Russia might be considering. And there are also voices who call for additional capabilities merely to raise costs for Moscow—that is, to kill more Russian soldiers—so as to create political problems for President Vladimir Putin at home, although without much expectation that Ukraine would prevail.

None of these arguments is convincing. That does not mean security cooperation with Kyiv should cease. It does mean that military assistance is not an effective lever for resolving this crisis.

More money?

What did Ukraine do with the 90 tons of stuff they received from the US in January of this year?

Will throwing more cash at the problem….solve the problem?

I say it will not.

Most wars aren’t “rational” and become more irrational the longer they go on (See Afghanistan). And most attempts to “rationalize” them are freighted with the very biases that will serve to perpetuate them. It’s one reason Barbara Tuchman’s The Guns of August will never go out of date. Almost all of the “lessons” learned from the insane bloodbath of World War I were wrong and helped to set the stage for the even more genocidal World War two decades later, was itself a war that produced not global peace but a world at perpetual war with itself, with antagonistic nuclear powers still fighting over the same scraps of land and oil reserves, insensate to the future of the planet itself.

(Jeffrey St. Clair)

Those emergence funds are needed here in this country to help solve our growing problems….but our corporate Congress had rather spend it anywhere but here.

If we want to help Ukraine then let the Pentagon and the CIA divert their funds….stop milking the taxpayer or let the corporations making profits off war foot the bill.

Well crap!

I enjoy an avocado a good source of vitamins and protein….I became acquainted with them on a trip to Mexico and have enjoyed them for 40 years……and to my tastes the ones from Mexico are excellent and a great buttery taste.

Since we have been importing them from Mexico they are inexpensive….about 60 cents each…..but now we have a problem on the supply chain from Mexico.

Mexico has acknowledged that the US government has suspended all imports of Mexican avocados after a US plant safety inspector in Mexico received a threat, the AP reports. The surprise, temporary suspension was confirmed late Saturday on the eve of the Super Bowl, the biggest sales opportunity of the year for Mexican avocado growers—though it would not affect game-day consumption since those avocados had already been shipped. Avocado exports are the latest victim of the drug cartel turf battles and extortion of avocado growers in the western state of Michoacan, the only state in Mexico fully authorized to export to the US market.

The US government suspended all imports of Mexican avocados “until further notice” after a US plant safety inspector in Mexico received a threatening message, Mexico’s Agriculture Department said in a statement. “US health authorities … made the decision after one of their officials, who was carrying out inspections in Uruapan, Michoacan, received a threatening message on his official cellphone,” the department wrote. The import ban came on the day that the Mexican avocado growers and packers association unveiled its Super Bowl ad for this year. Mexican exporters have taken out the pricey ads for almost a decade in a bid to associate guacamole as a Super Bowl tradition.

This year’s ad shows Julius Caesar and a rough bunch of gladiator fans outside what appears to be the Colosseum, soothing their apparently violent differences by enjoying guacamole and avocados. The association did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the ban, which hits an industry with almost $3 billion in annual exports. However, avocados for this year’s Super Bowl had already been exported in the weeks prior to the event. The US Embassy wrote that “facilitating the export of Mexican avocados to the US and guaranteeing the safety of our agricultural inspection personnel go hand in hand,” and that it is “working with the Mexican government to guarantee security conditions that would allow our personnel in Michoacan to resume operations.”

This ought to make the US avocado industry smile….for they are more expensive and less tasty so now they may have a captive audience at least for awhile.

Biden To Attack Inflation

In a recent news conference Biden addressed our growing inflation…..

The administration is going after rising prices by trying to solve the problems in the supply chain, Biden said, per the Washington Post. “We’ve been able to make progress on speeding up the access to materials,”

Seriously?

Let’s say Biden solves the supply thing….does anyone think prices will come down?

I do not!

It has not solved the problem yet so why would it now?

Food is not calculated in the inflation stats….so will we continue to pay outrageous prices for the stables?

So just how will Biden solve the inflation problem?

Tax cuts for corporations?

That has never worked in the past and in this age of corporate greed it will be no better than a fart in the wind.

Biden big idea was to consult so-called experts….

iberal CNN political analyst Bakari Sellers slammed President Biden Friday for responding to a question about the worsening inflation crisis gripping the U.S by referring to what “Nobel laureates” and “corporate leaders” told him about the issue rather than offering a solution to the American people.

During an appearance on “New Day,” Sellers called Biden’s response “terrible,” argued Americans weren’t concerned about the input of Nobel laureates, and declared that the problem was now Biden’s to fix.

Pundits always have answers but have no actual solutions just their hearsay…..

Dems will pay the price for this in the mid terms……as I have said many times there is a easy solution but NO one in DC has the guts to propose…..

The term “price controls” refers to the legal minimum or maximum prices set for specified goods. Price controls are normally mandated by the government in the free market. They are usually implemented as a means of direct economic intervention to manage the affordability of certain goods and services, including rent, gasoline, and food.

The American people do not need talk or promises of a solution….they need action and politicians are not capable of giving that solution.

Interest rates by the Fed will not help anyone today…..when hamburger cost $5+ a pound the interest rate will not effect whether I get a grilled sandwich or not.

Biden is doing what all presidents do….let think tanks decide…..instead of asking a cross-section of average Americans what would benefit them the most.

The solution will preserve corporation high profits and not worry about whether I can afford a steak once a  month.

So as usual…..we will not benefit from Biden’s limp ass solution.

If you have been shopping in the past year or so then you will be having ‘sticker shock’ for the prices of everything has done nothing but rise….especially food and gas….we need to eat and we need transportation so we suck it up and make the sacrifice and spend the money that we worked so hard to get.

The news is much more troubling than the prices…..

A new analysis released Tuesday ahead of a congressional hearing on pandemic-era price gouging shows that U.S. corporations in the food and energy sectors—from Tyson to Exxon Mobil—are pushing higher costs onto consumers while raking in ever-increasing revenues and handing executives massive pay packages.

Conducted by the advocacy group Food & Water Watch (FWW), the analysis spotlights the fact that skyrocketing food and energy—specifically gasoline—prices have been major contributors to the overall rise of inflation in the U.S. Between December 2019 and December 2021, the nation’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) jumped by 8.5%.

According to FWW, overall energy costs rose 20% over that period while the price per gallon of unleaded gasoline increased by 31.7%.

Meanwhile, FWW found, “the cost to feed a family of four on a ‘thrifty’ food plan has increased by 33.5%,” driven by the rising prices of ground beef (+19.2%), bacon (+31.7%), chicken breasts (+19.7%), milk (+17.4%), and eggs (+16.5%).

The analysis emphasizes that such “egregious” price increases come as leading corporations in the U.S. food and energy sectors are reporting growing revenues and huge profits. Tyson Foods—the second-largest chicken, beef, and pork processor in the world—has seen its revenue grow 11% above pre-pandemic levels.

The corporation also rewarded its top executives with higher pay in 2021 even as it raised prices for consumers, blaming supply chain issues.

At least it is good to see that CEOs and corporations did not suffer the same fate as the rest of us mere mortals.

Biden promises to address rising inflation….and if you think this will do anything to help us peasants then you have not been paying attention for the last 50 years.

There is a way to help us peasants but it is not an option for the corporations pay Congress to see that they continue to make their obscene profits while screwing the rest of us.

The problems return.

Have you noticed at your favorite supermarket that there seems to be fewer and fewer items on the shelves?

Well the culprit at least according to the ‘official’ sources are pandemic, weather and the food chain…..

Benjamin Whitely headed to a Safeway supermarket in Washington, DC, on Tuesday to grab some items for dinner. But he was disappointed to find the vegetable bins barren and a sparse selection of turkey, chicken, and milk. “Seems like I missed out on everything,” Whitely, 67, said. “I’m going to have to hunt around for stuff now.” Shortages at US grocery stores have grown more acute in recent weeks as new problems—like the fast-spreading omicron variant and severe weather—have piled on to the supply chain struggles and labor shortages that have plagued retailers since the coronavirus pandemic began, the AP reports. The shortages are widespread, impacting produce and meat as well as packaged goods such as cereal.

And they’re being reported nationwide. US groceries typically have 5% to 10% of their items out of stock at any given time; right now, that unavailability rate is hovering around 15%, according to Consumer Brands Association President and CEO Geoff Freeman. Part of the scarcity consumers are seeing on store shelves is due to pandemic trends that never abated—and are exacerbated by omicron. Americans are eating at home more than they used to, especially since offices and some schools remain closed, and are thus buying more at the grocery store. A historically high deficit of truck drivers that started building before the pandemic also remains a problem. And shipping remains delayed, impacting everything from imported foods to packaging that is printed overseas.

The omicron variant has also taken a toll on food production lines. Sean Connolly, the president and CEO of Conagra Brands, which makes Birds Eye frozen vegetables, Slim Jim meat snacks and other products, told investors last week that supplies from the company’s US plants will be constrained for at least the next month due to omicron-related absences. Worker illness is also impacting grocery stores. Stew Leonard Jr. is president and CEO of Stew Leonard’s, a supermarket chain that operates stores in Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. Last week, 8% of his workers—around 200 people—were either out sick or in quarantine. Usually, the level of absenteeism is more like 2%. And weather-related events, from snowstorms in the Northeast to wildfires in Colorado, also have impacted product availability and caused some shoppers to stock up more than usual.

I know let’s blame the workers, the drivers, etc…and the weather is a convenient culprit as well…..

Inflation is on the rise for the consumer…..

Prices paid by US consumers jumped 7% in December from a year earlier, the highest inflation rate since 1982 and the latest evidence that rising costs for food, gas, rent, and other necessities are heightening the financial pressures on America’s households, reports the AP. The Wall Street Journal reports this is the third consecutive month where inflation has topped 6%. What’s known as the core price index, which doesn’t take into account food and energy, was up 5.5% in December over the prior year. That tops November’s 4.9% and marks the highest rate since 1991.

Not to worry food costs still soar and no one is DC seems to give a crap….as long as the give some silly boring and totally ineffective speech all is well for them.

Have you had enough of the excuses?

Time for you to show you disapproval.

2022–First News

You have begun a new year…a year of elections, pandemic and far Right silliness and hatred….so I feel bad about being the messenger of more bad news for us mere mortals…..

Our holiday season of last year was the most expensive in recent history….sorry to say 2022 is not looking like any improvement…..

Red-hot inflation has been showing up in tangible form in everyone’s grocery bills throughout 2021. Is there relief on the horizon in the new year? Not so much. The Wall Street Journal surveyed several major food manufacturers and finds that prices for just about everything will keep rising. Kraft Heinz, for example, projects an average price increase of 5% for its products, though some will go as high as 20%. Fans of the company’s Grey Poupon mustard should brace for a hike of up to 13%. Another big name, Mondelez International, plans to raise the price of its cookies, candy, and other goodies by up to 7% starting in January. General Mills also will be raising prices next month. Produce, dairy, bread, juice, mac-and-cheese, frozen meals, mayo—you name it, it’s probably going up.

“There’s nothing immune,” says Tony Sarsam of of food retailer and distributor SpartanNash Co. The story cites by-now familiar problems, including supply-chain issues and higher labor and packaging costs. Not surprisingly, this will not only affect those who cook at home but those who eat out, notes Mashed. The costs of some items have risen higher than others over the past year, including beef (24%), bacon (20%), and eggs (12%), and no short-term relief looks to be in sight. Virtually all restaurants surveyed report major supply-chain problems with key ingredients, and menu prices are on track to keep rising. The Cheesecake Factory, for example, just raised prices 3% and may add another 2% in 2022.

Not to worry as wages stagnate the billionaires will still go to space and rake in fed money as they wait their turn in the rocket.

My prediction for 2022….nothing will change…the GOP will continue to do what they do best…..obstruct, the Dems will rant and rave and in the end do nothing, the MSM will continue to push a pro-war agenda of the MI-C….Americans will suffer from high prices and low wages…in other words the same crap we have suffered with for many decades.

Sorry to pee on the new year’s parade but forewarned is forearmed…..

Be well and be safe….

Inflation Is Raging!

If you have been shopping for just about anything then you have noticed all the price increases….and that my friend is inflation.

The Biden admin has said that inflation has hit its peak and that prices are coming down…..pause here for head scratching……really? Not something I have noticed….how about you?

But let’s hear what the Biden Boyz have to say about our inflation problem…..

The price of consumer goods rose by 6.8 percent over the past year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday, the biggest increase since the 1980s. “Essentially across the board,” as Vox’s Rani Molla and Emily Stewart write, everyday purchases from food to gas are costing more, and it’s going to be an expensive holiday season.

That part isn’t in debate. What is, however, is how worried everyone should be. In Washington, there’s sharp disagreement about what exactly is responsible for surging inflation, and what the government can — or should — do about it.

Some of the causes are fairly self-evident: Entering the third year of the Covid-19 pandemic, the US — and much of the rest of the world — is grappling with a supply chain crisis. That means most goods, from game consoles to oranges, are more difficult to get to store shelves for one reason or another, whether it’s a lack of critical tech components or a backup at ports due to labor shortages. But US consumers simply haven’t stopped buying, and that demand-supply disjunction has caused record inflation.

https://www.vox.com/2021/12/11/22829221/inflation-rate-cpi-supply-chain-biden-transitory

But talk and promises cann0ot curb the inflation problem…..and the people do not care….they just keep throwing their hard earned cash away without demanding some accountability…..

It was the summer of 1979, and President Jimmy Carter was up against it. Americans were paying far more for gas and groceries than they were the year before, and Carter was confronted with a choice: He could tell Americans that this was a problem the government could fix, or he could tell them to tighten their belts and persevere. He chose the latter. But prices continued to rise, and in 1980, Carter was defeated by Ronald Reagan in a landslide.

Things aren’t as bad as they were in 1979, but for many, the comparison is still apt. According to the latest consumer price index1 numbers, prices in November were up 6.9 percent compared with a year ago, the highest increase since 1982. And that comes alongside near-record-low consumer sentiment and a net approval rating for President Biden of -7.6 percentage points.2 Biden has said reversing inflation is a priority for his administration, and he has released strategic reserves of oil and announced plans to “relieve bottlenecks” to address soaring prices, but a difficult and uncertain road lies ahead.

It’s no secret that inflation is politically powerful. You can’t miss rising prices, and research has found that Americans care deeply about inflation. But the politics of handling it is messy, and should prices continue to rise, Biden has a difficult task. He faces a country that views inflation through a highly partisan lens — and that will judge his performance on the issue accordingly. If he ignores inflation, it could spiral as it did with Carter. But at the same time, should Biden react too forcefully, the cure could be worse than the disease

Why Biden Can’t Win On Inflation

People may bitch about the cost of goods but they do nothing to change the spiral of inflation……kinda like what the Biden admin is doing.

I told the  blogging world that we were not getting a ‘savior’ with Biden and his win over the Orange man…..and stats prove my warning….

What to do?   What to do?
