A link to the Federalist article is below this astonishing citation.

  • “If your income is more than $289,000 a year, the run-up in gas prices may be alarming—but it’s unlikely to hammer your overall finances.”
  • “Adjustment [to inflation] is hard for people without savings or choices.”
  • “To deal with gas prices, it’s worth reconsidering public transportation if it’s an option where you live.”
  • “When it comes to food, don’t be afraid to explore. Prices for animal-based food products will certainly increase…. Though your palate may not be used to it, tasty meat substitutes include vegetables (where prices are up a little over 4%, or lentils and beans, which are up about 9%). Plan to cut out the middle creature and consume plants directly.”
  • “Stay away from buying in bulk—you usually don’t save any more by buying more. Sure, there may be great deals, but most consumers wind up falling for the tricks that entice them to spend more.”
  • “If you’re one of the many Americans who became a new pet owner during the pandemic, you might want to rethink those costly pet medical needs. It may sound harsh, but researchers actually don’t recommend pet chemotherapy—which can cost up to $10,000—for ethical reasons.”


Oh yes indeed. If I make more than near 300K, I betcha that gas prices won’t affect me, or everyone else. Colbert mightily snorted the other night that he will pay $15.00 per gallon if necessary. Of course, it won’t affect him.

“Don’t stock up!” Yes, that is what the Left wants. For when you have no reserves to rely on, they have you right where they want you, utterly dependent on their whim when the shelves are bare. Rationing, anyone? After all, it won’t affect you.

“Take the bus!” No you elitists take a hike! After all, a multi-mile, round trip stroll to everything you will need to survive in my own economic level. And as you take that hike, you must also take a backpack. A large one. That will affect you, mostly around the middle, and the soles of your feet, and the time that you spend, and your aching bones…

And as U. S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm promised the wealthy, “If you drive an electric vehicle, it won’t affect you, clearly.”

I wonder if Granholm herself drives an electric vehicle? Clearly, it won’t affect her.


Yesterday, THE HILL reporting on “Five of the Most Memorable Moments from Jackson’s Confirmation Hearings” administered to the Hawleys, the Grahams, the Cruzes, the usual floggings that The Hill’s evermore left-leaning writers promote:

But what of Jackson’s refusal to answer Marsha Blackburn’s point-blank questioning as to how Jackson defines what a “woman” is? That is the moment really to keep in mind. Last I heard a woman is an adult female homo sapiens, as the Creator made us male and female. Sorry that our SCOTUS candidates no longer recognize that basic fact of nature, and the rights belonging to them by that nature. Now what to do about women’s rights?


My fellow citizens of the State of Indiana, have you had enough? Our governor has again shown his true colors as he has vetoed a bill protecting girls in Indiana K-12 sports from intrusion by biological males:

What is most appalling to me? Holcomb vetoed the bill as transgender NCAA swimmer Lia Thomas sets another record, defeating female swimmers time and again. I do not need to say more to readers who have a little common sense and reject the emotion-laden politics of an ideology intended to destroy all sense of natural law among the people.

And from Holcomb’s history of other restrictions and permissions, he needs to go. The people of this state deserve so much better.

Fight the good fight, and blessings as you do,

Father David+
