The 'bad' economy was supposed to bury Democrats in 2022. It might be their calling card in '24

The data shows an economy that's turning around but crickets from republicans.

Thank goodness. Hopefully after 2024, enough Boomers will have died that we won't have to worry about a Republican president for a while.

@Roundandroundwego A Fascist and a person so stupid that they vote Fascist is pretty much the same to me. Either way, the Fascists get more power.
@Roundandroundwego I don't get why so many of you old folk can't process that the hippies and the whole counter culture while large enough to have music devoted to it were the minority of your generation.

like every time we left wing activist are like ehhh good that the virus is killing off old farts there's a boomer who will show up like we've always been on your side and it's like Cool I hear you that's nice but look at the dominant majority of your generation and it's a sea of blood red that misses the 50s and thinks the 60s were a mistake and wants to turn back the clock.

like yeah We see you Grace slick but you can hardly speak for your your generation.

It's amazing how successful the media was at painting the narrative that an entire generation were anti-war hippies. Really, the media was using hippies to fear-monger, much like today when they say all college-students are Socialists, which is a lie they've been telling since the fifties.
Hippies and Socialists were always a small minority, but the media saw/sees them as a threat.
The cost of living is high because we built this trainwreck in precarious lives for the many and security for the elites. It's a bipartisan effort.
