8 thoughts on “The Biden Administration’s Bad Luck”

  1. It’s not bad luck. It’s all Trumps fault. The unprecedented president by electoral mistake. It’ll get fixed after we put all his supporters and the remaining domestic terrorists in jail or under surveillance. About 1/2 the US adult population that needs to be nullified. If not by incarceration, by undocumented rank choice voting.

    1. Did I skim the article too quickly, or did it miss the obligatory Heinlein quote?

      “Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

      This is known as “bad luck.”

    2. I have held to a crowd-sourcing theory of the wisdom of the American electorate in choosing if not the best candidate, at least the lesser of two evils.

      Clinton vs Dole? However bad Bill Clinton was, there is the sense that Bob Dole would have been a disaster? Bush vs Gore. Yes, the Iraq War, the missing WMD, the Hurricane Katrina disaster response, but seriously, do we even want to think about Al Gore as president? Obama vs McCain. A friend of mine who seriously believes the 2020 election was stolen told me that he voted for Mr. Obama because he thought Mr. McCain would start a war. Obama vs Romney? From his Senate career, are we getting a sense that however critical we are of Mr. Obama, seriously, Mitt Romney as president? Trump vs Clinton? However loopy Mr. Trump was, Hillary Clinton would have started a nuclear war?

      Biden vs Trump. It’s looking like the crowd-sourced wisdom-of-the-masses thing went missing? Dare I ask whether this election went with the crowd?

  2. ““Hopes that a spike in prices would quickly fade — that pandemic-induced inflation would be ‘transitory,’ to use the economic lingo — are being challenged by rising prices for a wide range of items.” It’s a burden that could weigh on the midterm election.”

    Democrats core power is to control media, so it isn’t surprising that they rely on trying to control information and spin events so hard. They just need people to believe something for a short period of time before reality red pills them and even then, Democrats inculcate a strong mythos so that their disinformation lives on for eternity.

    Inflation would be transitory if the reasons why we have inflation were transitory.

    Instapundit’s latest catch phrase is crisis by design and I think he is right. The negative outcomes are intended. What isn’t intended is the public catching on to the shenanigans. Does anyone think that gutting the oil industry wouldn’t lead to higher energy costs? Higher costs are intended. The destabilizing effects of inflation are intended too. The Democrats think they can profit both monetarily and politically from the societal chaos. Their goal is to destroy the country so that a superior Progressive Marxist country can take its place.

    But why stop there? Progressive Marxism is a global movement and the militant groups share money, manpower, and organizational resources with Progressive Marxists across the globe. This is why BLM is going strong in the UK and how they could promise Sinema paramilitaries would follow her around Europe.

    1. Until one set of Progressive Marxists believe they should be the Premier Marxists, then the nukes fly.

    1. Fearing the feck social theory of woke, it appears that the feck of folks Republican, prefer to flail than propose a more fulling future with feck.
