We’ll get through this

The Biden economy is worse than the Great Depression and Great Recession rolled into one big American carnage.

“Under his administration, families are worse off,” economist Katie Boyd Britt, PhD, chair of the Alabama School of Economics, said. “Hardworking families are struggling to make ends meet today. The American people are scraping by while the President proudly proclaims Bidenomics is working.”

Dr. Britt knows their struggle first-hand.

As a working mom, she somehow manages to feed her millionaire former NFL star husband Wesley Britt and their children on her meager $174,000 Senate salary, a mere $120,000 more than Alabama’s median household income. After Mr. Britt aged out of his football job, he contributes what he can as a registered lobbyist at a prominent Montgomery firm.

The Britt hearts go out to every American household sitting at the kitchen table fretting about paying their $300,000 in Bidendebt, including their credit cards, mortgages, auto loans and share of the $34 trillion in Biden national debt.

President Joe Biden’s Socialist administration claims he pulled his predecessor’s disastrous Covid pandemic economy off the ledge. They boast that Biden tamed near-record inflation while staving off the widely predicted recession, and boosted jobs, wages, and retirement accounts as investor confidence drove the stock market to an all-time high.

Top politically unaffiliated economists like Britt disagree. “President Biden just doesn’t get it. He’s out of touch,” she said.

Since Biden is preparing to steal another election from his predecessor, what can real Americans do to survive four more years of Bidenomics?

A few tips:

Tighten your belt.

Eating more helps. Yet…

Avoid $24 fast-food lunches.

Like the Five Guys burger/fries/soda meal that raised Twitter’s blood pressure more than the 1,500-calorie meal with three times the minimum daily requirement of Type 2 diabetes, salty grease and shameful eating.

Beware of “dynamic pricing.”

Like at Wendy’s. As their competitors said, you shouldn’t have to pay more when you’re hungry.

So wait out behind your nearest Wendy’s when it closes and jack the assistant manager when he hauls the unsold chili to the dumpster.

Pack a lunch at home.

This is much cheaper than any fast-food lunch you’re entitled to buy for less. Even though a Biden loaf of Italian bread costs a sticker-shocking ₺9,000 lira and a decent focaccia in Washington where Britt works can run up to ₺35,000.

Expand your LinkedIn network.

You may be suffering from the historic Bidenomic negative job losses. Even if you’re a shameless yet gifted multimillionaire propagandist liar who would cheerily and righteously undermine and sell out America for money like Tucker Carlson.

As you look for work, reach out and connect with people who got a lot richer from Trump tax breaks that sugared then crashed the economy for Biden to save.

Make clear you’re not one of those entitled Gen Zs or Millennials. You’ll put in a full five days a week and work remotely, flex or on-site, whatever is needed. You’ll even cut into your self-care de-stressing “me time” by responding to urgent colleague emails beyond business hours. Admit you suffer from ingrained work ethic, dedication, career drive, and recognition that raises and promotions are earned, not participation trophies.

Cut the cord.

Win-win: As you shave hundreds from your family budget, canceling cable will make it harder to watch Fox News that feeds your anxiety, depression, despair and resentment.

Quit whining about the economy, stupid.

This goes for left and right.

We all know Americans are the richest people in the world yet not all Americans share our riches. Lifting all boats is the timeless challenge of our democratic economy and used to be a Republican trickle down thing. But now the economy is a Trump divide-and-conquer strategy.

It’s a staple of free-market economics: If you tell people the economy is bad, they’ll make it worse. John Maynard Keynes called it “animal spirits.”

A good example: “New data reveals a crash not seen since Great Depression could hit in 2024,” Fox Business panted. “A growing amount of data indicates that a gigantic economic crisis could be right around the corner.”

That was last October. Since then, the Dow has surged 40% in happy reaction to Bidenomics.

And guess who “warn[ed] darkly that conspirators are attacking his presidency by frightening the economy into an unnecessary downturn” as The Economist reported? Not Biden. Trump in 2019.

So it sure doesn’t help when wealthy highly educated elite privileged Trump politicians like Britt and their propaganda arm use, abuse and fool real Americans for power and money by feeding negativity. But maybe that’s the goal?
