Do the left actually believe the lies theyre parroting about the reason for our supply crisis?

I don't disagree with that. Truck drivers have been in short supply for many years though. Independents would love to haul those containers out of the yard but they can't because of all the goofy laws they have there. It's a bitch to deliver or pickup in that state in the first place because you have to make sure you have both tanks filled to the top because you don't want to pay their fuel prices.

With the unions their dock workers don't work nights or weekends. Governor DeSantis invited all shipping companies to their state to unload. Their docks operate 24 hours a day plus weekends. It's a much longer way to travel, but their boat will be unloaded the minute they dock and their freight will be hauled away within a day or two.
If you want representation only for the interests of billionaires, vote RepubliQan.

Let's go Brandon.
What you're defending in fact is fascism, the notion that capitalists should run amok unfettered, tied tightly to government.

Socialism represents freedom, getting the parasites off our backs, ending the oppressive class system which has plagued humanity for millennia.

Get with the program... as you are now, you're only a brainwashed drone, a convenient dupe for billionaires who care NOTHING for your life or welfare. Wake up.

Correct, matters are worse because of no truck drivers. The Communists in that state passed legislation that no independent truckers are allowed to operate in state lines because independents are not union. Furthermore no trucks are allowed in the state with engines made before 2010 because of their idiotic environmental concerns. The state is responsible, not covid which anybody can get a vaccine for.

California is now burning because of "environmental concerns" which you've ignored for the past 40 years. Coastal regions are now flooding, because of "environmental concerns". The USA is suffering billions of dollars in losses annually due to flooding, extreme weather events, and wildfires, not to mention the loss of lives, and resources spent patching things up.

The damage to the American economy is the WORST in the world because you've done the least to prevent it. So just stop with your idiot talk of "communists", all of which is just another lie Republicans told you. For years I've read your dunderheaded, dull witted posts and not once have you ever lifted a finger to make yourself less ignorant, less gullible, or more informed.

You come here and regurgitate what ever right wing lie FOX is spouting, from the "Clintons are criminals", to the "election was stolen", and you've learned NOTHING in all these years. You've questioned nothing in all these years, and you're just as sour as miserable a human being who ever lived.

All your troubles are the fault of Democrats. You didn't lose your job because your employer could find someone to do the job cheaper. You got fired because of Obamacare.

The shortages aren't a worldwide issue, as the world comes back online after the pandemic, and because the USA has no stored resources - "just in time" delivery, has become a way of life to all of your supply chains, and now things aren't operating the way they were before.

And because American workers need more than what is being offered to return to work. Starting with a living wage, affordable child care, health care, family and maternity leaves, and better training resources - all of which you don't want to pay for because they help the poor and minorities more than white just white people.

So who has more stringent environmental policies than California? Doesn't seem to have done them much good, huh? Could it be because man does not control the climate--God does? Nah, that can't be it. I never realized how ridiculous that sounds. :laughing0301:

Our weather conditions are no different today than they've always been. You have no idea WTF you're talking about. You know, these leftists pump you people up with bullshit, and when DumBama bought his mansion on the ocean, he laughed his ass off and said "God those people are fucken stupid!'

No, I lost my job because government would not renew my medical card. Do you make this shit up as you type or dream it up while drinking?

No, it's because none of those things are the responsibility of the federal government. What the federal government is in charge of is outlined in the US Constitution. Guess what? Affordable child care, living wage, healthcare and maternity leave is not listed. I don't know why you come to a political discussion board when you know nothing about the country you want to discuss.

So move to a socialist country. Problem solved. No sense changing this country into another one of those shitholes.

You see you can do exactly as I suggested, and when you find out it's not what it's cracked up to be, you can always move back to the good ole USA. But once you destroy this place and find out what a bad deal it is, there is no other USA to move back to. There is only one USA in the world and we want to keep it that way.

No they're not. They're the only party which has an interest in running the country for the benefit of ALL of the people. And the only party that believes in democracy. Republicans are only interested in keeping power, but they are incapable of managing the country to the benefit of the people.

The covid response, the Texas Power Grid, and their attempts to disenfranchise people who don't vote for them is evidence of that. Then there's the abortion fiasco playing out right now. While forward thinking countries are all lifting restrictions on abortion, the USA is trying to ban it. Now they're threatening women with the draft.

Republicans are trying to return turn you into a Russian style dicatatorship. You'll still have elections, but the outcome will always be Republicans winning, while the country sinks further and further into shithole status.

Once again, you regurgitate the lies Republicans tell you. This is why your country is failing. You embrace the lies and disregard the truth. Every. Single. Time.

For years, you whined about Obamacare, costing you your job. Were you lying then, or are you lying now?

Quoting an economic principle from one man written 250 years ago, shows how backward thinking you are. You're prepared to trash the Constitution and the vision of the Founding Fathers at every turn, but cling to 18th Century notions about government responsibility.

Show me the post and quote where I ever said I lost my job because of commie care. I never said that liar. I did say I lost my employer insurance because of it like millions of other Americans, but not my job. Quit trying to depend on your failed memory at this age.

That one man I quoted was James Madison, one of our founders and the main author of the US Constitution. Yes, that was his vision. He and others knew the more dependency on the federal government, the more power they have. The more power government has, the less freedom we have, and this country was founded on laws and freedom.

You are a foreigner. I know what made my country the greatest country in the world in a few hundred years and you don't. Our country is failing now because we are under total Communist leadership right now, and will be until 2022.

Our border is a mess with people coming in by the thousands a week infected with God knows what. Inflation was caused by government paying people to not work, and now that they quit paying them, they don't want to come back. That means our supply chain is broken and can't get people to work in order to resolve it. Afghanistan was a disaster. Under Dementia, he handed the Taliban 83 billions dollars of US military gear making them the strongest military force of any fundamentalist group in the entire world. We will be paying over 50% more for natural gas this winter compared to when Trump was President.

So name me one thing I've lied about liar.

All of your environmental policies are regulations are generations behind the rest of the world. When I go to the USA, I am disgusted at the condition of your roads, and your cities. Dirty, ugly and badly in need of updating.

They just keep repeating over and over that there was pent up demand from the pandemic. Problem with that bold lie is that retailers saw record sales during the pandemic. Target for instance had their biggest quarter in their history during the pandemic.

Xiden and the demafascist said we need to lower our expectations.

And yet you and millions of foreigners always come here. Most all of our cities are commie run. Have to get rid of them before anybody can make improvements.

Not sure what the inflation rate is? Well I'm gonna tell you, it's 5.4%, the worst it's been in over 20 years. Yes, we lost many businesses and we will continue to lose more. The only possible way out of it is Republicans taking over the House in 22 and Biden and Whorris getting into a plane crash and we take over.

However what we are seeing today is evidence that we conservatives were right all along on the $15.00 minimum wage. Job losses, inflation, and cost of living having a dramatic increase.

Oh brother. I think you've reached peak bullshit. Congratulations.

So let me get this straight. Joe's Diner, for decades, has said he can't raise his wages to $15 an hour because it would put him out of business. Yet somehow...when rent costs him more, supplies cost him more, utilities cost him more....he's able to pay his employees more?

Yeah, like I said...you've outdone your already impressive record on posting nothing but crap.

I was not for it.
Sure...

Here is what you said
Did I mention stimulus checks?
Here is what you said:

1635034672442.png


Of course you were talking about stimulus checks. Now you're going to try to spin away from it.
Biden added the fully refundable child tax credit, increased SNAP benefits and added extra unemployment(up until recently). I guess you forgot about those things. People will work if they have to. They won’t if they are paid nearly the same to stay home.
A tax credit? That is your explanation?

Yeah, I'll save some money in April so I won't work the rest of the year.... You're just being stupid.

I can't even understand what you're talking about. What does his rent and supply increases have to do with employee rates? If anything, they won't see a pay increase for a longer period of time. All employers have to recoup their losses.

What we are seeing now is employers having to overpay workers. That cost gets transferred to their customers. When costs go up, it causes inflation. Besides the workers, yes, his supplies also cost more. Add the 50% or more cost of natural gas, and it's a huge problem for employers. They have to keep increasing prices to the customer.

Try to keep up.

Before the pandemic when we were talking about a $15/Hr minmum wage, the dogma was "We can't pay that, we're out of business". That is what Joe's Diner said.

Now, after a pandemic, they are advertising $15 an hour to start.

Your asinine contention that inflation is the cause of this sudden discovery of money to pay people is another sign you've reached Peak Bullshit.

And their choice is now what? Pay people that kind of money or close up. That's the only two choices they have at this point.

I hear people now. Did you see how much they raised the price of a Big Mac combo!!?? I'm not going there anymore!

So yes, places will lose businesses, some will close down, and those that can survive will pass the losses to their customers. Not once did we ever say all diners would close if we increased the MW to $15.00, but some will just like they are today.

So the tax credit that hasn't passed Congress is causing labor shortages today.

I see.

Wow...Again; you've reached Peak Bullshit.

Did I ever say that? I posted a survey that shows if it does pass, more people will get out of the labor market which is what the Democrats want. Just like when Dementia recently increased SNAP's. It's designed to encourage people to stay home, because when there are millions of jobs around, there is absolutely no other reason to increase SNAP's.
