Actually, Matt, it's really a straightforward answer on Earth2. Biden has caused worldwide inflation and Fecal incontinence (on Earth 1, fumes from Trump).
The following is true no Earth 1; but on Earth2, this is to be attributed solely to Mr. Trump:

New York CNN Updated 11:00 AM EST, Thu January 11, 2024 US consumer prices rose 3.4% annually to close out 2023, capping a year of substantial progress on efforts to rein in painfully high inflation.

The Consumer Price Index, which measures the average price changes for commonly purchased goods and services, rose 0.3% in December from the month before, matching expectations, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data released Thursday.
The monthly and annual numbers for December were higher than those seen in November, when tumbling gas prices drove the overall index lower. In December, gas prices stayed mostly in neutral, rising 0.2%, while rising shelter costs accounted for more than half of the monthly all-items increase, according to the BLS report.
Economists were expecting the annual overall inflation rate to tick higher, to 3.2% from the 3.1% headline reading the month before, according to FactSet consensus estimates.
Despite the acceleration, the annual rate of consumer-level inflation is down considerably from December 2022's rate of 6.5%; additionally, a closely watched measure of underlying inflation slowed further.
When removing the more volatile categories of food (which increased 0.2% on the month) and energy (which ticked up 0.4%), core CPI measured 3.9% annually, a step back from November's 4% reading and the lowest annual increase that index has seen since May 2021.

Showering with your under-age daughter, sniffing women's and girls' hair, unwanted hugs and kisses, yeah, perverted. And let's not talk about promoting wokeness, leaving the border wide open, even creating an app so illegals can make an appointment to cross the border without questions asked, the run-away inflation, soaring crime, going easy on criminals, etc.
...

I'm surprised he's not a Satanist too? Any other phoney moral panics we should keep an eye out for?

It now seems as if the Biden impeachment was a Russian disinformation campaign. And another of Putin's erstwhile opponents turned up dead (https://gwynnedyer.com/2024/navalny-murder/). So Putin lies, kills and is immune from prosecution, no wonder Trump likes him.

The Alabama supreme court has declared embryos to be human and may want to prosecute a poor lab tech who dropped a few. The Christian Taliban is gaining strength. Will they start pulling girls out of schools soon?

SCOTUS seems to be taking its time ruling on Trump's immunity claims. I wonder what they're thinking.

...  soaring crime, going easy on criminals, etc.


"Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy, former Attorney General William Barr, former Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, former chief of staff Mark Meadows, and former deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino all ignored Congressional subpoenas. For Republicans, the Rule of Law is for everyone, except themselves."

(not to mention Trump ignoring court orders wrt to turning over classified documents)

If you want to be tough on crime, how do you suggest handling these situations?  Because, you know, if you can't make your own politicians observe your own laws ... then you can't expect to be taken seriously, can you?

Multiple wrongs from the Waterlander if you want the paper trail posted here again. Starting with:

"Every lie is two lies-the, lie we tell others and the lie we tell
ourselves to justify it
." -Robert Brault:

I'll let you have the last word, promise.

Important video you would expect, non-Trump sycophants who fled a country invaded by Nazi Germany in May 1940 would find shocking. The Trump sycophants here will be fine with this:

2022 was one of the worst years for US stocks and bonds. Haven't done the 2023 detailed analysis yet, but it doesn't look good so far.
Nor today it seems. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average both notched new record highs and the tech-heavy Nasdaq was within striking distance of its own all-time high, reached in November 2021.
Who was the president in 2021 Frans?  ;D
EDIT: Everything is worse under Biden video:

I won't reply to your usual BS but when you grossly misrepresent the financial track record I will respond. Here are facts; all numbers compound annuals:
2022: S&P500 -18%; large and small company stocks -18%; bonds and bills -17%
2017-19, Trump's first 3 years: S&P500 15%; large and small company stocks 13%; bonds and bills 5%
2021-23, Biden's first 3 years: S&P500 10%; large and small company stocks 7%; bonds and bills -6%

The numbers I supplied speak for themselves and they don't even include the effect of inflation which was 2% per year for Trump's first 3 years and 6% per year for Biden's.
Yes, 2023 was better than 2022, but not enough to undo the losses in 2022. For 2022 and 2023 large and small company stocks lost 0.2% per year and bonds and bills lost 7% per year.

As do my much newer numbers. And my older ones that trump Trump. I don't know if you are purposely trying not to understand this or if you are really struggling with it. Actually, I do: both.

You are clearly out of your wheelhouse. Investing 101: Index numbers don't translate into total return (capital return plus income return), how much you have gained or lost. You should read my numbers again and try to internalize them, maybe even study investing a bit.

As you are here, and have been, on a site for photographers on the matter of photography!
Maybe my fellow bears can pool our monies and get you started on a new hobby, after which, do come by and tell us about your latest accomplishments. We can send you:https://claremurthy.com/photography-for-children/

You should read this, try to internalize it, and maybe even consider the study of photography.  ;)

Because of the recent Alabama supreme court ruling wrt embryos, the "algorithms" led me to various links when I came across this Wiki entry about the Seven Mountain Mandate, which I had never heard of, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Mountain_Mandate. After reading the history and theory, check out the prominent followers.

The US spent 18 years or so butting heads with the Afghani Taliban, maybe you should have been paying attention to what was happening in the Christian Taliban at home.
