    All of these are still significant problems, are you serious?? Just because something that was abhorrently mishandled from the beginning by this administration has become "less bad" to a degree does not mean it is a job well performed. You libs are really something. There is much more to add to this list actually.

    nearly 1,000 days in, the Biden WH has been laying down the tracks, via Bidenomics , for the 21st century's Economic Bill of Right

    • the right to a home of your own,
    • the right of a farmer to piece of land,
    • the right of the businessman to be free from monopoly competition,
    • the right to a doctor when you’re sick,
    • the right to a peaceful old age with adequate social security,
    • a right to a decent education.

    Looks like everything will be in better shape than it was when Biden took office. Which is more than the last guy did.

    ~~6 weeks later on 6 Sep 2023, as opined by Bloomberg

    Fed set to double its economic growth forecast after strong U.S. data


    Following a string of stronger-than-expected reports on everything from consumer spending to residential investment, economists have been boosting their forecasts for gross domestic product (GDP) / the whole economic pie.

    the Atlanta Fed even has it expanding 5.6% on an annualized basis in the third quarter.

    That marks a sharp turnaround from three months ago – the last time policymakers updated their own numbers – when the consensus view was that the economy would stall in the current quarter.

    And it may be enough to prompt Fed officials to scale back their estimates for interest-rate cuts in 2024.

    61% of Americans clearly haven't heard @rocketsjudoka explanation that Joe Biden takes 50% of Hunter's money because of liquidity and family values

    Good. We don’t need new oil leases. Oil and Gas companies have the technology to replenish existing wells with carbon capture technology. There’s no need to drill new wells in an environmentally sensitive location when you could save money this way. I belief the bipartisan infrastructure plan gives incentives for carbon capture development as well.

    Good for Biden. Now let the oil and gas companies replenish their own wells which they can easily do.

    Military faces recruitment crisis as ‘unpatriotic’ Gen Z fails to join up — thanks to obesity and therapy ban

    https://nypost.com/2023/09/07/milit...crisis-as-unpatriotic-gen-z-fails-to-join-up/

    excerpt:

    Generational researcher and psychologist Dr. Jean Twenge says that Gen Z “stands out for their high levels of pessimism” about the country.

    In her book Generations: The Real Differences between Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, Boomers and Silents—and What They Mean for America’s Future, Twenge notes that Zoomers are the generation most likely to favor socialism over capitalism, and that 4 in 10 say the Founding Fathers are better described as villains than heroes.

    “This skepticism about the U.S. system very well might be playing a role in military recruiting,” Twenge told The Post.

    The Army said the state of the economy is also a factor. “A strong U.S. job market has historically correlated with a challenging recruiting environment for the military,” Lt. Col. Ruth Castro said.

    “Fierce competition in the private sector drives wages up and makes the Army’s benefits less attractive to prospective candidates.”

    Hahah... what a stupid article.

    Anyone that serves in the military or has close friends/family who serve know why people enlist and it's not because they are in shape or have some sense of patriotism that Gen Z'ers don't have. People join the military to find themselves, find community, and have a good sense of structure around their lives. You get a chance to stabilize your life, and have structure along with your financials stabilized. There's a reason why the military also has a good deal of black and brown Americans.

    Recruitment also was going to take a dive the further and further we get from 9/11 where there is a common enemy that drives that patriotic sense of duty, and desire to fight. Right now the biggest threat is China, Russia, and North Korea which is going to be a higher risk of death engagement if war was to happen. That has to be on the minds of recruits too. No longer will you just be assuming you'll be going up against farmers with a Soviet era AK while you'll have state of the art equipment. If NATO is drawn into combat, or Kim Jung launches a bomb at Guam or something, we are going to have a response that puts a high amount of causalities on the line.

    So right now you have a combination of factors:
    -Great job market
    -9/11 in the rear view
    -Nobody currently killing Americans in the media
    -Higher risk potential enemies

    That is leading to a understandable drought in recruiting. That doesn't mean Americans aren't patriotic, and wouldn't enlist like crazy if there was a real threat like Bin Laden, Hitler, etc. that started attacking America. It also doesn't help that the candidate for Republican President and his propaganda infrastructure lie to half of America that the biggest threats to our country in Putin, and Kim Jung are actually wonderful people, should be our friends, and that our actual Allies are our enemies because they don't bribe Trump enough.

    I saw this, and to be accurate its 61% of 1500 people polled, little bit deceiving on the headline. Could it partisan, sure or it could be that if the gop keeps saying the same lie over and over people will listen, but to fair comer and company have been telling fib after fib and have proved nothing. As I have said many times, if hunter broke the law then lock him up, the gop has had years to do this and have found nothing but they keep trying.

    I get it, you want to find dirt on biden because the other guy has 91 counts against him and will have to pay $10 million to the lady who he raped.

    You don't think Joe was involved in Hunter's business dealings?

    Serious Q:

    Has any Democratic voter here ever been contacted by one of the major pollsters (Gallup, CNN, FoxNews, etc.)? I'm not talking about an email from someone like Beto that says "take this poll now if you are tired of Trump's inhumane border policies" etc. Like a serious poll.

    I for one cannot recall ever being contacted, and I don't know how these pollsters even contact people like me to begin with.

    A. I don't answer my cell phone if I don't have your number, or it's not in my area code when I'm expecting a call from like a doctor, etc.
    B. I don't click crap online

    I'm technically a millennial but on the older spectrum. I can only imagine how hard it is to poll voters in the 23 to 30 year old range. I would assume it might be easier to poll college kids given how pollsters at least know where to find them.

    Maybe I'm wrong here, but I seriously am confused as to why in 2023, especially in an off year, we care about some CNN poll.

    I was being sarcastic. He was technically correct, but yes there's an assumption that CNN did not literally go house to house to poll every single American.
