He isn't wrong.

She's the mouthpiece for the White House and she lacks basic communication skills that are needed for that job. She's a representative model for the administration. Checking boxes and woefully unprepared, unskilled and willing to outright lie to the American people.

So, tell me exactly what that does that have to do with the price of gas?

WTF MACS?


Why do you think Biden chose her to be press secretary? He was pandering to 3 communities at once... and when she took the job, she straight said it herself... the clip is out there.

If you’re going to pander to special communities, 3 for the price of 1 is pretty darn good. 4 for 1 is even better so maybe she can work on that.

Isn't the press secretary the one in charge of telling us that gas prices are not high?

Previous page... talking prices of gas and why it skyrocketed. Biden and his mouthpiece called it the Putin price hike, when in fact it is his policies that caused the majority of the jump.

And this is Cbid, Robert... when do we ever stay on topic? LOL

I like to think that the current gas prices and energy prices in general are the “new normal.”

High energy costs are necessary to force Americans to green energy solutions so there will be no real effort to lower energy prices. This plays into the hands of the Green New Deal cash grab quite nicely.

I know you said this in jest, but you hit the nail on the head...

we discovered how fragile our democracy and form of government is...we learned there is a significant segment of our population who would willingly submit to a despotic authoritarian who uses racist tendencies to divide the country, demonize the opposition, and to foment insurrection in the name of retaining power, absolute power...

Fortunately for us, he didn't have enough cultists at the highest level of government, and their love for the ideals of America and its Constitution prevented a catastrophic outcome.


sorry, I'ma a noob: wrong forum...

I'm betting someone told the entire team to not bring any drugs. On the bright side, she might get to do an episode of the National Geographic series, Locked Up Abroad.

Investing in green energy is a big deal but complicated…

Start with ESG. Environmental, social, and (corporate) governance. This a new litmus test for does a company stand for social goals or just maximizing profits. This is invading a lot of pensions like CalPERs but also mutual funds. Pressure is exerted to divest from low ESG. Divest from Exxon and buy a wind company even though you would make more money with Exxon. This is a real thing so you can’t ignore it.

https://www.unpri.org/download?ac=16515

Good boring reading on energy transition.

Easiest thing to do is buy green energy ETFs. There are plenty. It’s all the rage. The question is at what point do these become good investments. Some are feel good garbage.

First Trust Global Wind ETF
First Trust Nasdaq Clean Edge Green Energy ETF
Plenty more.

You could shoot for individual stocks: more risky trying to strike gold.
Wind: Vestas
Solar: Enphase
EV: Tesla
Utilities that are rather green: NextEra, Iberdrola
Batteries: Samsung, Panasonic, Contemporary Amperex Technology

Hell buy all of them for a nice green portfolio. None of these companies I mentioned is undiscovered by any means.

Undiscovered stuff we can’t get at because that’s private investors and venture capital. The way VC works in Silicon Valley is they buy parts of 20 companies. One strikes gold and 19 go bankrupt or never make a penny. Diversification is your friend! I’ve worked for VC owned companies out here. It’s a different world.

Another way to go is to buy Exxon or Chevron or BP or Shell. Wait….that’s not very ESG. Actually big oil has massive green energy R&D budgets. They are not just going to pump the last barrel of oil and then turn the lights off and close shop. You get a good money maker paying a 3% dividend who just might discover the next great thing.


Now what I didn’t get into is what if you have some nice green investments but they get outperformed by banking, tech, consumer staples, etc. well that happens a lot. Again, diversification is your friend.

Disclaimer: None of the companies I mentioned do I own individual stock in although I’m sure I do through mutual funds.

An area I’m interested in is green hydrogen as opposed to blue hydrogen and blue ammonia although those are interesting too.

Not a ton of options for investing but there are ETFs out there.
Bloom Energy is an example company…I was even looking at going to work there for a bit.

Florida gas prices drop another 14 cents per gallon

Average fill-up costs nearly $20 less than what drivers paid in June

Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, Fla. – The good news at the gas pump continues as prices in Florida drop for a ninth consecutive week.

According to new numbers released by AAA- The Auto Club Group, gas prices in Florida dropped another 14 cents per gallon last week. That brings the average for regular to $3.65 per gallon. That’s the lowest daily average since March 3, 2022.

Experts with AAA believe pump prices will continue to go down, despite a 3% increase in oil prices.

The national average for regular also dropped last week from $4.07 per gallon to $3.96 per gallon.
According to AAA, it now costs $55 to fill an average-sized vehicle. That’s nearly $20 less than what drivers paid in June, when prices hit the record high of $4.89 per gallon.

I am not usually one for authority, but we really need some forum moderation around these parts....

Maybe just a feature where if 20 or more poeple click on a "ban-me" button in your profile you are banned for a week. Collective-banning.

Ahhh, the ban-me button. It also may deliver a Vietnamese sandwich to your door. Not sure.

Yeah... and when your policies make it go up 200% and you blame it on Putin... when it goes down 25%, don't try to take credit... just STFU.

well....shut my mouf...gas prices went sky high, blame it on Brandon...

they are coming down...Brandon's got nuttin to do wid it...


cons used argue that the POTUS has nothing to do with gas prices fluctuating wildly and rising higher and higher when GWB was in charge...just made the case that the markets had everything to do with the price of gas, not POTUS...


but sometimes they do, when their decisions impact the drilling, production and movement of petro, impacting the supply side of the market


Brandon was correct to point out that Putin's decision to invade Ukraine messed up the supply and distribution of oil...


Karine Jean Pierre is more qualified and better prepared than eye candy Kayleigh McEnany, who held (to her credit, since her predecessors abandoned them altogether) infrequent and short briefings, offering basic commentary of administration activities and dodging most questions
