    We truly live in a sick, dystopian society...

    This dude has no clue what he's talking about.
    Inflation that we are seeing today is a direct result of governmental policy over the last 2+ years.

    If they bring me the truth, I don't care where they are based out of.

    It is clear that neither party cares that their party is corrupt. So who cares what they think.

    My wife and I made saavy decisions and we own three houses. One is a Condo for my son to live in and the other is a Shore Townhouse. My prime house is a Victorian built in 1887. The Best way is Real Estate. My background as a home and State licensed municipal inspector helped for sure.

    We certainly don't have free enterprise as Government is more involved. Economist call it a mixed enterprise economy since gov has more say and regulations.

    No. Inflation today is a result of globalization failing because the world population is getting too old and the US is no longer interested in propping globalization up.

    This has been sped up by covid-19 and Russia attacking Ukraine, but we were always going to see rapid inflation this decade.
