I remember when the California recall election got started, the corporate media was all over Caitlin Jenner, saying she had a real chance to win.
That was months and months ago. We haven’t heard her name mentioned since.
Why is that?
It’s because we all know she’s not a serious candidate.
The candidate that took charge in the race - Larry Elder - is someone most of us had never heard of before until just a couple weeks ago.
It’s interesting how things work out.
As a quick aside, Elder has raised $13 million to Gavin’s $10 million. But it’s the outside groups that are the key.
$83 million has been spent to oppose the recall, while about $45 million has been spent to support it. A whopping $72 million has been reported by anti-recall groups alone (think rich Dems from all over the country).
I don’t know what’s going to happen in that race tonight, but most of the talking heads have already decided that Gavin will retain his seat.
I feel sorry for the good people of California, and that beautiful state. The smart folks will leave as fast as they can.
Many will come here, to Montana and Missoula, specifically. It’s so much cheaper to live here than there.
Don’t make it any easier for us, though, does it? And it’s not going to get any easier. It’s going to get worse, a lot worse.
I don’t think people understand what’s coming. But then, I’ve been saying that for years.
What’s going to happen when the Fed takes its foot off the brake, when it finally raises interest rates or stops printing money or stops bailing out the repo markets?
On a related note, when are we going to get serious about the debt ceiling? How high can it go; how many times can we raise it?
I wish Janet Yellen and Jerome Powell would go out and get some real jobs. I’m sick of paying their salary.
But they won’t. They’ll expend all their social capital pretending they’re helping you and the country, and while we’re not looking, they’ll take as much of the money out of our back pocket as they can.
And there I go again. Starting to sound like Joe Manchin on the Sunday morning shows. No one wants to hear it.
