  1. Well, I guess our fuel will be getting shipped overseas when foreign customers offer our oil companies more money for it than our companies are legally allowed to ask for. Maybe the extra can be called a processing and delivery fee or something.

  2. It is even worse. Listen to Jerome Powell in this podcast. At about 20 minutes in, he talks about what the government can do to battle inflation, lower demand.

    How does a government lower the demand of the entire economy?

    They want to bleed the populace until people have no money to spend and then there will be no demand. They don’t want to balance the budget, it isn’t even mentioned. Nope, just use government to crush the aspirations of the populace for their own good. After all, wasn’t it their fault we are in this mess in the first place?
