Biden economists clueless – The very unsteady economy has just been made more unsteady and more recession prone by the recent passing of a monstrous spending package by Congress. The results of the action will raise taxes across the board and on top of that more susceptible to IRS audits particularly in the middle class.
It is beyond comprehension that these Biden handlers do not look at history to see what works and what does not. Jimmy Carter had this country’s economy tied up in knots while he was President, with 20%+ interest rates, gasoline rationing, high prices on everything in the retail market, and was at a loss to correct anything.
The election of President Reagan turned the economy around, along with cancellation of hamstringing regulations and things turned around rather quickly. Obama’s economic failures were corrected when he left office with a booming economy, which was indicative of a Dow Market flying at 37,000 on 20 Jan 2021. Who will be the one to correct Biden’s mismanagement with subsequent failures manifesting daily, is anyone’s guess.
Why these Presidents do not utilize the methods and tools that work for the American people is beyond me. In just a short period of time there have been three presidential failures of economic management, and two distinct corrections with the third one to be done. What did Reagan do that worked, what did Bush (1and 2) do, what did Trump do that was so successful to bring about prosperity for all of working America?
These wheels of success have been reinvented twice in 36 years, with one more to go. Do we not learn from these ups and downs, and where is the logic coming from that produces the downs. I fail to see where this gets the time of day, yet it rules and takes the people down with it.
Time to play with what works, and forget the nonsense. If it takes a reset at the top end of the spectrum so be it. – James B. Hall, Center Rutland
Fly Old Glory in Barre on 9/11 – Once again the Barre City Council is up to their old tricks. Once again some members of the Barre City Council want to keep us from raising Our 20 x 30 FT American Flag to commemorate the anniversary and honor the dead that died that day on Tuesday September 11, 2001.
Tuesday August 16, 2022 I submitted a flag request to our new City Mgr. Nicolas Storellicastro. Nicolas has been out of state so I’ve received no response as of yet. This flag request should be put on the agenda for an upcoming Barre City Council Meeting. Two hours after emailing this request I received an email from Barre City Councilor Boutin. His response was and I quote; “ Brian, I will not be participating in your request to raise the United States Flag for 9/11. Please note previously at a council meeting Samn Stockwell and myself were going to discuss other options for rememberance. Thank you. Michael Boutin “ For those unaware Samn Stockwell is one of two Barre City Councilors for Ward 3.
What happened to Michael Boutin? Last year at just about this same time I put in the same request to fly this same flag for the same reason and Michael Boutin made a motion that we fly our 20 x 30 FT American flag in accordance to this flag request. It never got a second because 4 of the 4 communist Barre City Councilor’s present refused to second Michael Boutin’s first motion. One of the communist Barre City Councilor’s went so far to comment that she thought Our Flag was divisive, she thought it was intimidating, she thought we had enough flags in Barre City already. What happened to Michael Boutin? Last year a Patriot, this year a coward? Has he gone over to the other side?
Last year Barre City Patriots defied these Communist Barre City Councilors and we raised our flag anyway. We had our flag, we got a big crane and on Saturday September 11, 2021, at 9:11 am we raised our flag to commemorate the 20th anniversary and to honor those who died on September 11, 2001.
The Communists tried again to keep us from putting up our flag to Honor Veteran’s on Veteran’s Day. At the City Council Meeting on November 2, 2021 our 5 Communist City Councilors unanimously stated they would vote against raising our flag for Veteran’s Day. At the next City Council Meeting Barre City Patriots stood up and Communist Barre City Councilors backed down. We showed up enmasse on zoom and in person and the Barre City Council voted yes unanimously to raise our flag for Veteran’s Day.
We need to stand up again, Barre City Patriots. This is our City and this is our Flag and if we want to fly it we are gonna fly it. Please go to Barre City’s website to find out when and or if they will put my request on the agenda for an upcoming City Council Meeting.
Our big, beautiful American Flag is a symbol of freedom. People like the people who sit on the Barre City Council are trying to take away our freedoms one by one, day after day all around our beautiful country. Don’t let them do it to us here in Barre, Vermont! Thank you for your time and consideration. God Bless you all and God Bless The United States of America. – Brian Judd, Barre City
