It cost me close to $50 to put ten gallons of gas in my car yesterday. I told the guy on the other side of the pump that we need to take out a loan to fill up our cars. We shared a few choice words about Joe Biden and his stupid policies. Folks at other pumps were nodding their heads in agreement. Time for this nonsense to end.
People may be offended that someone like me would call a policy or a president “stupid.” Too harsh, they say, disrespectful. Merriam Webster offers a definition of stupid as “given to unintelligent decisions or acts: acting in an unintelligent or careless manner; marked by or resulting from unreasoned thinking or acting.” Based on that definition, it’s not being disrespectful but, rather, truthful.
Case in point: Congress passes a $1.5 TRILLION spending bill, and the Speaker of the House says it’s not inflationary. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) actually had the audacity to tell the news media: “The government spending is doing the exact reverse, reducing the national debt. It is not inflationary.” And the news media, and probably most Democrats, believed her.
Now let’s think about this a moment. If your bank account was in the red, and you went out and bought a bunch of things that you really didn’t need, do you think your spouse would buy into the idea that your spending was going to reduce your debt? Is this “unreasoned thinking or acting”? Sure it is. In old farm boy terms, it’s stupid.
Joe Biden and his press secretary Jen Psaki are blaming Russia for America’s inflation. It’s as if the American people are so stupid that they believe Russia is at the center of America’s economic woes when this inflation business began within days after Biden took office. This inflation is so bad that even Democrat shills like CNN are taking notice.
CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer asked Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV): “The president is also blaming the high gas prices right now—and the inflation—he’s blaming Russia, labeling it Putin’s price hike. Can the White House really, though, claim Putin is solely responsible? Because prices, as you know, have been rising long before the Russian invasion.”
If a gaslighter like Blitzer can recognize that the president is gaslighting Americans about the economy, it’s becoming pretty obvious that Biden’s policies cannot hide behind Russia. But see, this is just one example of how this administration and its accomplices are “acting in an unintelligent or careless manner.” There are so many—Iran, the border, COVID, and the list goes on and on.
As the Bible says in James 1:8 about a person lacking wisdom and is like wave in the sea being tossed by the wind, “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
One cannot “spend” himself out of debt. One cannot cut the supply of a vital commodity without causing price increases. They practice what I call Common Sense Deficit Syndrome. When this lack of wisdom and instability is institutionalized as part of the bureaucracy, it is, say it with me… Stupidocrisy.
