Are you kidding me?
“The economy is great, but nobody has noticed!“
You have to be a special kind of stupid to print something like that.
This is not going to be a post about the economy at all.
I only want to talk about the sheer idiocy of these headlines.
You cannot fool voters. You cannot show them “data” and tell try to convince them the economy is better than it is.
There is no economy.
It’s just people. It’s us. We’re the economy.
People instinctively know if it’s good or if it’s bad, because it directly affects their lives every single day.
“The economy” is not a thing. It’s the financial health of the American people in the aggregate.
If the economy sucks, there is no hiding it.
People always know. There is no fooling them. Because they are the economy.
If people go to the grocery store and notice that they’re having to spend more and more for the same stuff, the media cannot FACT CHECK that.
No amount of graphs and charts can convince people that the economy is actually good when their first-hand experiences tell them it’s terrible.
Tim Pool made a great video about this yesterday. It’s pretty long, but if you’re cooking food or doing housework or something maybe put it on in the background. That’s what I usually do for long videos like this.
Tim absolutely goes off.
He even talks about the terrible lie coming from some parts of the media that “Actually, Inflation Is Good For You!”
I’ve never seen him get this pissed off. It’s an excellent video.
