5. Well, they ran the entire gamut of people who didn't vote for Biden.

What a shock they don't like him.

Cherry pick your focus group, why don't you? And then paint the situation with an imaginary BROAD BRUSH....

10. You shouldn't dismiss this. With high inflation,

shortage of everything, worker shortage, gas prices and Congress seeming to be deadlocked. It doesn't look too promising in 2022.

Itís too early to predict 2022 one way or the other.

14. I keep thinking we are at low point and it will

turn around. If Manchin and Sinama would cooperate I think it will. Even there Biden asked for 6 trillion and it ends up less that 3 three it will reported as a major loss by the media. It was a big mistake focusing on a dollar figure rather than what it is intended to accomplish.

12. It seems to be the same old problem.

Uninformed voters who probably just read biased headlines or sound clips and don't do even the slightest investigation about what's really happening.

15. This is the entire article. Nowhere does it ref who did the focus group

Not even a hint.

Media can go fk right off.
I don't care who the author is. The hit was shitty & hardly written by a professional editor before being shoved out to the media like some truth.
Who authored this piece? Was he commissioned & paid by the Focus Group?
Where was the focus group held?
Online?
Who decided how & which questions were to be asked?

Who created the focus group as 'proof of legitimacy' to the pre-scripted fictional piece?

Well? ...waiting.

16. Johnathan Last is a conservative from The Weekly Standard and The Bulwark.

Political Wire reports on what a right wing conservative claims, based on a focus group of nine specially selected "Democrats", including a Trump-voter.

Why is this even here?

25. Absolutely!

From Amazon's description of a book he edited, The Seven Deadly Virtues: 18 Conservative Writers on Why the Virtuous Life is Funny as Hell:

An all-star team of eighteen conservative writers offers a hilarious, insightful, sanctimony-free remix of William Bennettís The Book of Virtues―without parental controls. The Seven Deadly Virtues sits down next to readers at the bar, buys them a drink, and an hour or three later, ushers them into the revival tent without them even realizing it.

Who the fuck cares what they think?

20. I keep hearing about shortages but at the Jersey shore -

I aint seeing any.

Grocery stores fully stocked.

My makeup spots fully stocked.

Dollar stores fully stocked.

Gas prices up a little but I just think they went back to pre-pandemic prices really.

A friend on another forum said she was seeing shortages of things related to the wildfires in Oregon but that's it.

I don't get it.

21. I try to focus on other groups of people

Ones who can reason, use common sense, and have memories.

You'd be surprised how many more informed people are out there than Jonathan Last realizes.

27. More republican media controlled propaganda, haphazardly planting seeds of excrement?

I do though want to know why gasoline is so high!
(over $4 here)

I would prefer the govt takeover of basic utilities, and gasoline to me is just another exploited utility business.
The greedy spend so much $ to protect their advantage it's a cottage industry itself?
