Yeah, climate crisis disasters and craporate price gouging just add to the Dark Age list.

Paul ADK

Inflation… wages increase, and prices rise, mostly because the owners of the means of production couldn’t possibly let increases in costs affect the bottom line. And then there are the opportunists, who increase prices well beyond the rise in costs, out of pure greed. Or political motivation. There’s some cause for it, prices have been static forever and any increases beyond increased costs is unjustifiable and therefore unconscionable. If it were up to me, those increased costs in wages should have come out of the profit and not passed along to the consumer, but hey, it’s capitalism, that’s what happens.

Capitalism… you know, ups and downs, ins and outs, profits and losses, winners and losers. All going on like it’s the way it has to be. The only way. It isn’t.

Capitalism is the problem, here. Inflation is only a symptom.

And homelessness is another symptom that the right wing likes to howl about.

Then they complain about increased pay for workers, so how the hell is one to afford to put a roof over their heads? work to 3 jobs? there’s only 24 hours in a day. If craprate america had their way they’d pay 1980 wages and keep 2024 prices.

What do you expect out of greedball PTBs who haven’t changed their stripes in a few centuries? Same old sh1t, only now add in international climate crisis!!

The only solice is all empires collapse due to feeding on it self. Craprate America is accomplishing all by themselves. Greed/shrink flation is doing as its the last way they can gouge the public. At some point the dollar will collapse as we cant keep on printing money to bail out the corporations during the last stock crash and covid. I doubt i’ll be around to see it but its comming. Capitalisms’ fine but needs to be highly regulated or its becomes self comsuming at some point. The GQP is rushing it as they keep de regulating every chance they get or throw in even more tax breaks for them.

Paul ADK

Workers need to own their company. Co- ops need to be the rule, rather than the exemption. Disparity needs to be addressed and the wealth shared by all. That’s the only workable economic system I can see. Call it whatever you want.

Good gawd, wi! That is scary. We’re bracing for a very active Hurricane season. Climate crisis is for real, folks. Hubster talked to his pal down in Costa Rica earlier today. They’re finally getting rain tho their temps have been normal. My oldest pal is down in the Bahamas. It has been hot, and the fishing has been negatively affected.
