WTF are you talking about? I didn't ask for comparisons. I asked Knox for solutions. Of which the Republican party has none.

The Democrats locked down the economy on purpose to win an election, the solution is to keep them out of power...everywhere, forever.

The Democrats are intentionally destroying our energy industry....

So the solution is to stop intentionally killing major parts of our economy.

Total b.s. Plenty of people would have stayed home to keep safe from covid, thus keeping the restaurants, etc. at less than capacity. You might as well deny that millions worldwide have died from covid.

No, people would have lived their lives as usual. The Dems created hysteria and killed the economy.

restaurants....travel and tourism, retail. They shut it all down. Parents needed to stay home to teach their kids because the schools were shutdown.

Take a look at Florida, the beaches were full as we're their restaurants...remember, not everyone is a scared bitch hiding in their basement.

Solutions?
Every household should have an 'inflation garden' so they can grow their own veggies. People need to get back to cooking and preserving at home. I know lots of folks that can grow a years' worth of veggies, including tomatoes, beans, peas, and kale for less than $20. That would go a long way in fighting inflation. A home cooked meal costa about 50% what a restaurant meal does.

No, intelligent people realized that Covid was very contagious and deadly - they acted in their own best self-interest.

And folks in apartments, old folks who can't garden, people with disabilities, ect...your solution to inflation is ridiculous.

We aren't going to garden our way out of inflation.

That idea helped win WWII.

Having more home cooked meals and eating them together could help repair the nuclear family. Not quite Norman Rockwell but better than eating in a crowded room with strangers.

The average price per meal at restaurants moves around $20, while home-cooked dishes cost about $4.50 per serving. Even meal kits are cheaper than dining out. Home-cooking is exceptionally economical for large families. Plus, you can always turn any leftovers into your next meal.

The solution is to not lockdown the economy for 2 years and creating supply chain problems and worker shortages....

You're talking about saving money.

That doesn't bring down the cost of gas, or fix supply chain problems, or bring people to work - or end wars in Europe.

Not driving to a restaurant reduces the gas consumption - reduces demand, lowers price....

Lol, not driving 1/4 mile to a restaurant is going to lower our gas consumption.

How about this, you let people live their own lives and mind your own business. No one put you in charge of anything, I'm not sure why you think you get to tell people what to do.

I offer a solution you don't like. It is a way to reduce consumption, spending, gas usage. If we would all work together instead of bitching and moaning about prices/inflation maybe we could help reduce the problem.

Don't bitch and blame others - become part of a solution.

Add that to the lefts compulsion to teach elementary school children how to tuck and tape and white kids are racist.... Out of touch. Forcing people to say "Black Lives Matter" or they will harass you.....

Then you have lefties defending a cross dressing man who raped a woman in a girls bathroom. Criminals are now emboldened because the left is excusing criminal acts due to some sort of convoluted concept of "fairness."

Totally f'd up. Clowns like @LafayetteBear used to be rational. Now he's fully on board with it all.
He has no integrity or empathy, just like NJ. But hey, they're caring Dems.

Total nonsense. These are the same people that went to Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Costco, gas stations, and every grocery in America. But restaurants! Hell no. Good grief. Your idiot party is still pushing mask bullsh&t.

Free to do what you want, but the choice was taken from everyone else....
I have news for you 2Lying. In this country government IS the people and not a bunch of Socialist control freaks trying to manage every segment of your life by lying, deceiving, and distorting the truth for cheap political advantage and control as if people are stupid.

November can’t come soon enough and this time I really hope voters have payed attention and are fed up with the Democrat control freaks. And although I wouldn’t be foolish enough to predict any outcome, if I were a Democrat, I wouldn’t feel very positive about my political future. This goes way beyond that worthless POS Pedo Pete too. It extends to the entire worthless group of academic elitists and humanists that are the Democrat Party.

And kills jobs and hurts industries. Meanwhile, China and India are building hundreds of coal power plants. But hey, don't drive to a restaurant.

And?

You're just an authoritarian who enjoyed living under a dictatorship.


God, you are a government bootlicker...
How is a private home garden a directive from the gov? You're just a Debbie Downer since Trumper is falling like a rock.

I and many millions of others don't need to be out as much as many others. There is nothing wrong with caution especially since NOBODY knew how it was going to result. I'm diabetic and have been thru two times of treatment for cancer. I prefer to play it safe.

Then stay home. Nobody gives a shit. Let other folks live their own life, make your decisions for yourself...not for others.

You can stay inside and let cats eat you after you die, I don't care.

First off, I do not and will not have any pets.

Secondly, I'm not stopping you from living your own life. Neither is Biden.

Oh Democrats were certainly keeping me from living my life.

They kept my kids out of school for 2 years...and that's just were it starts. My daughter is entering 3rd grade this fall and hasn't yet had a normal full year of school. So go fvck yourself.

Trump did not solve potential supply chain problems nor worker shortages.

The lockdown is what caused them dummy. If states didn't shutdown there wouldn't have been a problem....the economy was doing great.

Now your fake Scranton Jesus dumped us into a recession after he tried to kill the energy industry...and your still wearing a face mask in the grocery store, despite being 4 times vaccinated.
