Let Them Eat Kix
I trust in the efficiency of the many very talented business people in our mostly free economy to adjust to inflation and get our markets running smoothly again.
But I don’t trust our government leaders who have been spending recklessly for years and are currently attempting to ram a massive, ridiculous spending bill down our throats that could make high inflation a lasting problem.
I fondly remember the Clinton presidency when, for a blip in time, our government actually took in more money than it spent.
But since 2001 Presidents Bush ($6 trillion), Obama ($9 trillion) and Trump ($6 trillion) have reversed that trend and added trillions to our total debt.
Way too few people in Washington seem to care about our $28 trillion national debt or the inflation they’ve caused.
They don’t care a whit about struggling diner owners or cash-strapped patrons who now eat cereal for breakfast.
