Veterans Day 2023

I cannot let this day pass without a nod of gratitude to all the men and women who have served in the armed forces to protect and preserve our country in both wartime as well as peacetime. I know some served more willingly than others as the Vietnam era draft is still a sore point for many. But all who  served did so out of a their sense of responsibility to their country, a sense that doesn’t seem to exist in the propagandized minds of today’s youth.

While the face of freedom’s enemy may morph over time, it never goes away.That is why we’ll always need people on the wall, willing to do whatever is necessary to keep the malignancy at bay; people who don’t need safe spaces and for whom “trigger warning” means something altogether different than hurt feelings

It is why today we honor all those who have responded to the call to serve both currently and in previous generations. To the men and women who carried out their obligation with a senesce of dignity, duty and courage: we salute and thank you.

Just for the record: “Veterans Day is always observed officially on November 11, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls.”

Falling Further and Further Behind

It’s that time again.


This year however inflation adjustments require getting back only 48 minutes of the hour we lost last spring. According to official government sources, outside of food, energy, mortgage rates and time, inflation is better than ever.

BIDEB TIME INFLATIONLet’s all just say “thanks Brandon” for “building the economy from the middle out.” By spring we’ll all be used to our $18 Big Mac extra value meals and barely notice losing another 12-15 minutes in the annual  DST time grab: I mean really, you just got 48 minutes back, what more to you want?! It’s all for a good cause, global warming and whatnot.

Anyway buttercup, be sure to factor in the Inflation Reduction Act “discount” to your annual DST clock adjustment and be grateful it wasn’t even more.
