    Re: Biden goes lower and lower

    To be fair, it is always hard to separate out the actions of a predecessor on your current situation. It is fair to say that gas prices had been going up at an alarming rate on Biden's watch and...
  2. Re: Will the 2022 Recession officially begin after the 4th of July?

    There is no hard set of criteria though shrinking GDP for a period of time is a part of it.

    It would be nice if all nominations were nearly unanimous. But if we did that we would probably never have a successful nominee and SCOTUS would dwindle in size until there are none.
