    3 months and still no explanation from my buddy GoIrish41 on Biden's internment camps. Disappointing.

We also have to stop acting like these people are taking jobs we all want, when they continually work under the table as migrant farmers, unskilled laborers, and more.
    We already pump billions of dollars of aid into these countries. Short of starting a war, to take over the country there isn't a lot that can be done for them. I have no problem accepting anyone as long as they come in legally and pay their share of taxes. I stop at giving them social security and welfare benefits if they haven't paid into the system.

A lot of the sectors facing high increases have been hit with supply issues (see - chip shortages for cars, cyber attack on the gas pipeline) so yeah....if there is a supply chain impact then of course prices are going to go up.

    Central banks are going to act accordingly and predictably, there is no reason to get upset. Cycle your investments into defensive stocks and ride it out, everything is going to be ok. Poor people? Oh they're fucked but that's what happens when both parties don't give a dick about them.
    The second check wasn't necessary and only added to what is happening. Now he wants to keep spending?

    If you have a car to sell and don't need to replace it, now's the time to do it.

    This is also contradictory to what Joe said. He platformed on taking care of the lower class and sticking it to the wealthy.

I would never want to live near our southern border - seems like a never ending cluster. Again - both sides are not serious about fixing the problem. IMO, Trump was the only person to ever make a meaningful move to "fix" it and caught flack from Ds and undermining from Rs. Now we have the highest numbers in over 2 decades and the "KIDS IN CAGES" mob is now carrying water for Biden's compassionate processing centers that offer in-person learning!

    Would honestly love to hear your take on how the border should be run. Mine is simple - big wall and a big door (at least 5x the visas and citizenship numbers of today) - no anchor babies.

    I apologize for denigrating teachers - I forgot they are a protected class.

    Our new church is going under contract for $650k more than originally projected because of INFLATION in the price of virtually every input. Not to mention concerns/expectations that timelines will be blown up by supply chain issues. Everyone was happy it was only $650k.

    Here's another from today on MSNBC. While overall inflation is looking at 3.6% currently it could continue to rise, and some goods like used cars have jumped 70% since last year. If you don't think that hurts low and middle class families hard I don't know what to tell you. Many of them can't afford brand new cars, and most of us need transportation to work.

They know it and aren't stopping it. The denial of reality gets old.

    But Uncle Joe ran on the platform of welcoming everyone, stopping the wall and closing down the internment camps (Wait, now that Joe is in office they're no longer internment camps. They're processing centers). So now Joe has opened more camps and is not welcoming everyone? What happened?

    Anyone who references CNN in anything other than satire cannot be taken seriously. Now I'm not saying you need to rush to OAN to get your facts, but CNN has proven over and over again to be manipulated propaganda with the biggest blinders on. They are the laughing stock as long as you're not already sucked into their vacuum.

    Biden Monday denied reports that Americans are choosing to not return to work and choosing to stay at home and collect unemployment benefits.

    “We’re going to make it clear that anyone collecting unemployment who is offered a suitable job must take the job or lose their unemployment benefits,” Biden said.

    Biden’s announcement comes as COVID-19 cases decline and states and localities ease restrictions with businesses adding jobs for four straight months, according to the Labor Department. Still, the unemployment rate ticked up to 6.1% from 6% in March.

Childcare has always been an "issue" when it comes to flexibility to work. Is there a link or any info on how many men compared to women are going back to work? I am guessing it probably is more than the 13% difference prepandemic just because kids are stuck at home and not at school still in a lot of areas.

    I was talking to a car salesman that said there are millions of cars just sitting waiting on chips and manufacturers are sitting on these cars paying a ton for lot space until these new cars can be chipped. Crazy!!

    I called a guy Friday for a job interview and he said he was not interested in coming in, he just needed to show he applied for a job for unemployment.

    The biggest hurdle seems to be the extra payments and coordinated school shutdowns between his party and teacher's unions. Hard to blame an economic collapse at this point. Earnings are booming.

    If they can make $12 an hour unemployment sitting at home doing nothing, nine out of 10 will choose to make less money doing nothing.

    My fiance and I went out to eat last weekend and it was not good. Restaurants can't get staffed properly because the government is giving them money to sit at home. Pretty sad.

    We have been hiring for 2 months. Typically we have about 30 appliacnts the first week. We have had 11 in 2 months. We have hired 3. One is really awful and would be asked to not come back under normal circumstances and we have another that came in for training 3 weeks ago but has not been able to commit to a schedule. In normla circumstances we would just move on. Today the ONLY staff scheduled called off. So guess what I am doing?

    Minimum wage is 10.50 here and we have been posting 12-15 an hour.
    Taking the day off?

    7 million unfilled jobs and 9 million collecting unemployment insurance and being paid to sit at home. US Chamber of Commerce has called to end the supplemental unemployment insurance.

    Inflation is going to have me conducting commerce with dogecoin and lumber before too long.
