I begin today with two wise old African proverbs from the country of my birth, Rhodesia.
Shona Proverb:- “ The innocent looking people are often the guilty.” In Shona that would read “Imbwa nyoro ndidzo tsengi dzamatovo.”
An old Shangaan proverb: “Don’t replace a puff adder with a black mamba.” Or in their language “Huma Mheri kunghena mamba.”
The Biden WH just tweeted that the cost of a July 4th Bar B Q just got cheaper for his American proletariat! How much cheaper? Great question. Let me tell you here! Hold your breath. Here it is! $0.16!
Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish. pic.twitter.com/7h9qLauIbC

Apparently they worked out that the average cook out went down that huge amount and it is therefore a sign that prices are coming down and the rumors about hyperinflation or just inflation is just that. Rumors. Sent out by white supremists. Conservatives. You know? The evil Trump supporters. In other words you and me!
Biden is trying to say that his economic plan is working and things are just hunky dory!
Hmmmmm…….I for one am not feeling that.
I understand that Biden probably has not been to a gas station lately, or if by chance he had, he probably forgot! After all, his mental capacity is very diminished! The average price across the country for a gallon of regular gas is now $3.15, the highest price since 2014 and an increase of a massive 42% from just last year under the Trump administration.
Home prices have gone up 24% this year moving more and more average Americans away from the dream of home ownership. That, Sniffer Joe, is $0.16 every 1.3 seconds! Takes care of that $0.16 saving on our cookout!! Yay!!
By the way according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service there is not one product or price category that has gone down in 2021 over 2020!
This is the tweet sent out by the lunatics in the WH press office supposedly from Biden! “Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish.”
What comic! They should all be on stage! I suggest the first one outa town!
