The consequences of an inflation-driven recession are on the horizon, and the red danger flags are flying...

  • You are retired and living on a fixed income in inflationary times that reduces your ability to maintain your standard of living.
  • Your place of employment requires a lengthy commute, and mass transit or ride-sharing is unavailable while gas prices are skyrocketing.
  • Your company does not generate a self-sustaining profit, is dependent upon venture capital investment, or is expending money on a "woke social agenda" rather than reinvesting in profit-generating activities to advance the social standing of senior management, which create layoffs and asset divestitures.
  • Your company has massive debt coming due or is technically insolvent --where current cash flow cannot cover current liabilities -- and lacks hard assets to collateralize loans.
  • Your company exists in an interest-sensitive sector that requires individuals or organizations to finance your product purchases, or you are a lender.
  • Your company is increasing its automation of backroom processes and customer-facing interaction -- replacing people with indefatigable machines.
  • Your country is pursuing socialist policies and tolerating inflation spread over the entire population like a hidden tax, which in the regime's viewpoint is preferable to massive unemployment and allows the government to generate higher taxes and retire debt with "cheaper dollars."
  • Your country is flooded with non-productive, high-maintenance illegal aliens who are rapidly depleting our emergency reserves while consuming medical, housing, employment, and educational resources.
  • Your country or company is run by corrupt individuals willing to eliminate or burden the "little people" to preserve their profits, perks, and privileges.

The solutions for our country, companies, and individuals are self-evident ...

  • Eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in your country, company, and life.
  • Reprioritize spending to cover critical activities and eliminate non-essential items.
  • Reduce or restructure debt while eliminating non-essential or underperforming assets.
  • Outlaw or restrict public employee unions that have institutionalized political corruption, waste, fraud, and abuse.
  • Build an emergency fund.
  • Vote those responsible for the dramatic decline of our nation since January 20, 2021, out of office.

Bottom line...

  • Hope is not a plan; wishing is not a strategy.
  • We can no longer rely on our government or the media to tell the truth about economic and social matters.
  • You do not need to be a number-crunching economist to see that prices are rising and the availability of goods is falling. This is the classic definition of inflation: too much money chasing too few goods and increasing prices.
  • You must take affirmative action now.
  • You realize you are responsible for your own protection and that of your family. Law enforcement has no legal duty to protect individuals not in their custody.
  • Vote the bastards out of office. Revive our energy sector now. Prosecute those who brought this malevolent evil upon our land.

We are so screwed.
