But while he’s telling the public the Taliban is no threat, people in Kabul are fearing for their lives. People messaging back they desperately need help getting out of there.

One person fell a thousand feet to his death, clinging to the wheels of a plane taking off.

Lloyd Austin is Biden’s Secretary of Defense, telling Biden how bad this can get, but his pleas are falling on deaf ears.

Just because we post a cute little meme doesn't make it true. Lets take your first claim.

Inflation rates by year:
2016 - 1.3%
2017 - 2.1%
2018 - 2.4%
2019 - 1.8%
2020 - 1.2%

And 2021? President Biden's 1st 7 months in office?

Wait for it.

5.4%!!!!

Anybody wanna do the rest?

Care to back up your work here, D'Snowth? Or just crickets?

As I said before, I only had to pay about 30 dollars for gas during Trump’s last month.

Since Biden came in I’ve had to spend nearly 50 dollars. If I drove a smaller car then I can easily say I’d probably end up having to pay 30 dollars as my car used to take in (it is a big car). Frankly these days it feels like I’m getting robbed by gas stations and it just makes me want to travel on bus nowadays.

And 2021? President Biden's 1st 7 months in office?

Wait for it.

Honestly I can already sense gas will be up by 5 or 6 by 2024. Definitely gonna need a lot of weed to smoke every time I get salty when I have to fill up my car with gas.

And I’ll put in my two cents.
In my wife got tax breaks in 2018 and 2019.
she’s an assistant manager at CVS. Making roughly 40 grand a year.

Wealthy, right? Right up there with Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. So how did she get a tax break if she only makes a tiny fraction of their incomes?
Maybe it needs to be Snowthsplained to me.
