The New Congress

We’ll see if there is any change.  America is acting as if there will be no change.  The world outside is acting as if there will be no change.  The market plunged.  The temperature plunged.  Otherwise, 6 January is no different.

Gas is cheaper but, have you noticed?  We all are obsessing over this small matter of fuel costs while every other cost continues to climb, with no rationale beyond the fiscal planners advice to encourage healthy inflation.

Inflation is healthy, if your boss inflates your salary adequately.  It is healthy, if cost of living increases keep pace.

But they don’t.  So, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.  And the rich and the poor preach capitalism and socialism

to no effect.
