If you define president as something you do, Trump was never president. He just sat in the office, sometimes.

I watched Biden's inauguration speech, for about 10 seconds, and walked away. He was talking about a unity that was never going to happen. IOW, a politician doing what politicians do. Normal, ignorable.

Biden will be millions of times better than Trump. You could prob hold a lottery and get someone thousands of times better.

But Republicans have wandered off the reservation, and that ugly reality is already playing out in the halls of Congress with Hawley slow walking nominees. Why anyone is tolerating his continued presence there mystifies me.

It's a good thing the kids from Georgia won.

I have to agree. It SURE IS NICE to have a normal President again. No more having to turn the TV off every single time I see the President because I don't want to hear his abuse to the rest of the country. Now I can keep the TV on and be assured we won't be hearing our President abuse the rest of the country and spreading hatred and lies.

Why don't you just ignore him and change the channel? That's the best way to enjoy having a president that is a president, he won't say anything worth listening to anyway.

@Beren

Well, I am different. Before Trump, I listened to every President when they came on TV. During Trump, when Trump came on TV, I immediately changed the channel. Now, I can go back to listening to who-ever is President again.

Oh yeah Biden will be 1 million times better we are already seeing the Biden effect of increasing fuel prices. Just what middle America needs for their disposable income.



"Supply and demand factors have helped crude oil prices rise “steadily throughout December and the first week of January,” according to U.S. Energy Information Administration. During that time, Brent and West Texas Intermediate settled at their highest levels since February 2020, with prices of more than $50 per barrel.

“Expectations of economic recovery associated with the approval and production of a number of COVID-19 vaccines is perhaps the most significant demand-side factor in crude oil price changes. Vaccine efforts have contributed to a broad increase in prices across most asset classes and commodities, reflecting market expectations for economic growth,” according to the EIA."

So Biden is to blame for something that happened before he was president. And reflects optimism. That's the kind of lie you expect at a bar from a guy that's slamming back boilermakers...

Oil prices are traded on the futures market the speculation is occurring now what part of that is hard for you to understand. It’s the Biden affect just what people need when they don’t have jobs, just what people need a repeat a history when the economy sucked what did Obama do? He doubled down on spending and regulations. Hold on tight for another shit economy that could break records again. I’m real glad that all the snowflakes feelings won’t get hurt because they can now watch the president on TV fumble and stumble..

So is this the forums first “but Trump” you should get an award for that

What are you talking about you didn’t care how much it cost to fill your tank depending on which president is in office, that doesn’t make sense sense. People don’t have disposable incomes as it is, doesn’t take much to see that really high gas prices is going to be crippling to the economy.

I also didn't like to listen to Trump, but he could be entertaining as a Twitter hero.

High prices are short change when you consider the long term trend for oil. Perhaps an increase in minimum wage would satisfy people's living costs. Or maybe they could cycle @Finfinder.


How do you increase the minimum wage of people that don’t have jobs due to the pandemic, is the timing and logic something that escapes the leftists? Biden said one of the first executive orders he’s going to sign is canceling the keystone pipeline.

You will see more price hikes. It is called "green deal". New administration plans to make oil expensive with taxing. They want to make oil looks expensive compared to renewable energy sources whih are really very expensive.

Your industry will go bankrupt with unsustainable energy costs while Chinese will keep using cheap oil to make their economy massive large. :lol:

It’s Obama .20. What did Obama do when the economy was struggling he spent money hand over fist instead of focusing on creating jobs and lowering taxes. At least Joe Biden won’t hurt peoples feelings when he’s on TV now..

Good on them. Oil will never be made obsolete (plastics and rubbers are still extremely important), but most oil is used for transport, and that segment of oil use will become obsolete in the next decade or two.

You can't, capitalism doesn't allow it.
