Marie Antoinette was the last Queen of France before the French Revolution.  Considering the suffering of the French people she famously – or infamously – responded to the lack of bread by allegedly saying. “Let them eat cake.”  Whether she actually said that is debated by historians, but she did lose her head over it.

On the eve of Thanksgiving, President Biden went on television to assure the American people that inflation was not so bad — and the shelves would be stocked with everything they could want for the holiday.  That was after Biden was serving meals at a food pantry and before he headed to Nantucket to spend the holiday in the $20 million mansion of billionaire ($5 billion) David Rubenstein, co-founder of The Carlyle Group, a $300 billion private equity fund.

In the wake of Biden’s departure to Nantucket, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki reiterated the President’s assurances – noting that the 24-pound turkey would only cost $1 more this year.  Apparently, someone forgot to put “per pound” on her notebook.

The White House also claimed that the overall increase in the Thanksgiving dinner was a mere five percent.  That is about one-third of the official figure of a 14 percent increase – and that is an average.

If I were in Nantucket with Biden, I could report the real situation on the ground.  You see … I am a guy who actually goes into the grocery store like most common folk.

On my list was skimmed milk.  None on shelf.  So, 2% milk would do.  None on shelf.  I settled for whole milk.

I wanted some whipped cream for my pumpkin pie. Shelf empty.

Wanted to pick up some real regular butter.  None to be had.  Only a few of the unsalted variety.

Time to restock the zero Gatorade (I am diabetic).  Empty shelves.

I make a really good breakfast sausage stuffing.  No breakfast sausage.

As I searched for the items on the list, I saw a lot of empty shelf space.  Fortunately, they were not products on my list.

Biden is lucky, however.  Unlike Antoinette, he may be losing his mind but at least not his head.  

So there ‘tis.

  1. Why hasn’t impeachment started on a lame president that is hell bent on killing our country? Is the whole political system so crupt that they ALL want our country to fall to communism? Is it a revolution, is what it will take to get our once great country back ? Why hasn’t our president fallen to the way of Antoinette?

  2. Biden has given in to these communist on the left and around the world bidens enemies are the American people that won’t take a knee to this socilist communist take over of the country.

  3. I am sick and tired of the republicans wanting money money money it is time to use bullets bullets and bullets kill these Communist bastards instead of feeding them billions of dollars let’s take our country back with bullets

    “The White House also claimed that the overall increase in the Thanksgiving dinner was a mere five percent. That is about one-third of the official figure of a 14 percent increase – and that is an average.”

    Puppet Biden is sitting in a seat, as president, he is unqualified for, and was not legitimately elected to.
    The public (even Democrats) knew Biden never deserved to even be a candidate, much less president.
    This was obvious as Biden (and Harris more so) was tanking in the Democrat polls and would have lost the presidential primary race had Buttigieg and Klobuchar not dropped out before Super Tuesday (3/03/2020).

    It is ILLEGAL for Obama (3rd term) or Pelosi (not elected) to be running the White House from the Oval Office as Biden sits in a sound stage in a different location.
    Do these unelected entitleists think Americans are making a lot more money than they are actually making?
    Giving everyone a handout does not help them appreciate it, it only makes them feel entitled to more. This is Not a solution.

    If the person that was legitimately elected, by people, (per the Scytl data collected by our military in Frankfurt, Germany – The same data that all the 5 eyes countries that spy on each other corroborate) was legitimately installed as president, our country would not be the laughingstock of the world.
    Biden is a Puppet. Whoever is running the country was Never elected and that is Sedition and Treason.
    The whole world can see this.
    We are all wondering when people who respect the law will end this game of Charade, and the duly elected president is finally installed, per law.
