    "The poor".

    Everyone in this country legally is part of the global 1% in top earners.

    CARES and ARP were necessary to stave off the ill effects of the pandemic. Prices rose and that was the price we all paid to save the economy. Now, inflation is coming down.

    Down.

    Capiche?

    The pandemic has passed us.

    Got it?

    Vivek is a bloviating super annoying idiot. How can you even consider him?

    RFK? He's quirky as hell but he's left of center, so I'm okay with him.
    No way.

    Trump is a moron, a buffoon, a divider, an idiot, find someone else,

    There is no way in hell it will be better with Trump, nor was it ever better with Trump. I didn't vote for Bush, but he didn't make my days miserable as Trump did, every time he appeared on TV with his bloviating blather it made my blood boil -- every word coming out of his mouth is a lie, or something incredibly stupid. He is a f*cking idiot, and I'm not the only one who says so::

    Sorry, no, Inflation is NOT coming down - the GROWTH of inflation is slowing down; CPI -U is still more than 16% higher than when Joe was sworn in. Facts matter, capiche?

    They do. This is why they're putting more and more computers and proprietary software into the car so that you're locked out.

    Agricultural equipment is the worst. If you try to repair it or you try to get a repair tool because of the repair tool is cheaper than paying somebody to repair it and you attempt to repair it switches into a limp mode where you can't use the equipment so now you have to pay a manufactured technician $20,000 to come flip a switch.

    When we're talking about harvest time it's make or break. I've noticed a lot of Japanese tractors being imported used. When all of the gauges and all of the labels on the tractor in Japanese it's clear they weren't meant for the US market.

    The ill effects of the pandemic or primarily induced by democrats acting like a dictator isn't shutting down commerce in their states I think any Governor or state official that did this should be hung for treason.

    So it's vote for somebody that I liked their policies and what they did or vote for somebody I think should be hung for treason.

    Nobody has done more damage to our country than the Biden administration.

    If you guys could run someone less terrible I probably wouldn't consider it because they would still be terrible compared to Trump.

    Yeah I hate that. That's why the only electronics in my Jeep is the stereo. I have some add in stuff, but I put those in.

    Haven't followed it too closely but I do know some of the "right to repair" stuff has been successful.

    But yes, sad situation indeed.

    LoL I spent a lot of time in Japan. Are the tractors tiny and painted light blue ;)

    What's happening in this market is the consumers smarter than they thought they were.

    The government created a mandate to try and bully you into adopting what they say is a modern technology and it isn't it's very old.

    And the sycophants will call you on Monday but the thing is when the horseless carriage came about the gasoline powered car the government didn't have to force you out of your horse and buggy people chose that because it was better.

    All they're going to do is force themselves into bankruptcy. A tractor is better than mules towing a plow. But only when it's not ruinously expensive to operate. When it becomes far too cheap to breed a few mules and pull a plow one higher a few people to pull a bunch of plows the tractor companies are finished. All the equipment that you connect to the back of the tractor can be pulled by mules.

    It's a bad move to treat the customer like an adversary.

    Inflation isn't coming down. The rate is slowing a little, but prices are still inflating. That means their going up. Capiche?

    rather than deal with the entire wall of sound, I always get a laugh out of this-pay more taxes or the unproductive will revolt. People aren't being oppressed by government. They are being told that we tire of them sucking on the public tits. Have you ever seen REAL poverty. Like hovels next to the runways at say the Cali Airport in Columbia? Masai villages in parts of Kenya? American poor have 100 dollar sneakers, cell phones, cable tv etc

    If the poor in the US were their own country, they'd be the 7th richest country in the world after all.

    Dear God, your posts go on for ever.
    I'd like to see this kind of crap from Bribed Demented Open Borders Joe, stop, and that's why I'll be voting for other than Bribed Demented Open Borders Joe.

    [​IMG]
    'FCC Now Forcing Broadcasters to Publish Race and Gender Data of Employees'

    It's none of their damned business. Should we all start selecting 'decline to state'?

    Bribed Demented Open Border Joe's 'FCC just ordered every broadcaster to start posting a race & gender scorecard that breaks down the demographics of their workforce. Activists lobbied for this b/c they want to see businesses pressured into hiring people based on their race & gender. Courts have already overturned the FCC *twice* for pressuring broadcasters into making hiring decisions in violation of the Constitution.'

    Requires the information be POSTED

    'The Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires that the government keep this type of data confidential when it is collected by the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission. But the FCC goes another way—one that violates the Constitution, as courts already found in two prior FCC cases.'

    They are dogwhistleing for Leftist pressure groups

    'The evidentiary record makes clear that the FCC has chosen to publish these scorecards for one and only one reason—to ensure that businesses are targeted and pressured into making decisions based on a person’s race and gender.'

    'The FCC's history of unconstitutional conduct is not a trivial matter. The Supreme Court has stated that “[d]istinctions between citizens solely because of their ancestry are by their very nature odious to a free people whose institutions are founded upon the doctrine of equality.” Likewise, the Supreme Court has written that racial classifications “threaten to stigmatize individuals by reason of their membership in a racial group and to incite racial hostility.”'

    I'm voting against Bribed Demented Open Borders Joe, in an effort to restore sanity to government.

    It goes to demographics, not publishing data on individuals.

    Your cheap shot references are such that I cannot take you seriously,

    Far from it. My Daughter went from paying in the last three years for her rent on her home $1,700.00 a month to $2,100.00 to $2.500.00 this year. I bought a package of sausage two years ago for $1,29 Now over $1.80 and it wasn't even a full box. donuts was $4.98, Beans was $0.79 You may have to click on them to make them larger.

    there is stuff I see lying on the side of the highways that I would vote for over Joe Biden. At least a road killed possum isn't going to go out of its way to screw this country over

    So long as the DNC insiders (not the Democrat party voters) appoint their corrupt phonies like Hillary and Biden, Trump will have appeal in comparison, not just for right wingers, but also for many centrists.

    Immigration & Trade issues.

    There are some economic issues as well.

    And then even if Trump and associates are a little slimy, they were trying to do a sweeping out of D.C.
    Why do you think Democrats in D.C. hate him so much?

    No one is denying inflation exists. I just explained why it exists.

    Please reread the OP.

    His judicial picks would also be more flavorable to big business

    Nope, Manchin is fully corrupted and in his donors' pockets as witnessed during Biden's Build Back Better debate. Just admitted it our political system keeps throwing up bad candidates with bad policies for the American public.

    Trust me, Manchin is the swamp.

    Aside from Trump's base, the primary reason a lot of centrists will end up voting for Trump is Biden. I remain amazed that the Democrats will run him as their candidate. Generic Democrat beats Trump. Generic Democrat beats Generic Republican. But Trump is looking more and more likely to beat Biden.
