    The minimum wage in Australia has just been increased by 5.1% (in line with inflation - thanks Vlad, everything related to energy has skyrocketed).

    Biden has no jurisdiction outside the US and everything has gone up everywhere. Put the blame where it belongs.

    I am talking about US. Biden has jurisdiction in the US.   

    The first thing he did was sign policies that cause oil/gas to go up.  And it started going up more than a year before Putin/Ukraine.  

    Covid BS rules (not all Biden...Newsom in CA gets some credit there) slowed down supply chain.  AGAIN all before Putin.

    Yes, but have you ever considered just letting something go? Or is getting in a few political digs and having the last word more important than letting good news be the main theme of this discussion? Never mind, I  know the answer to that.

    I generally try to reply to everyone who answers.   I also enjoy talking politics.

    May I suggest that if you must reply, that you just say 'thanks for commenting ' instead of going off topic? If you want to continue the discussion, start a new thread.

    The above hero is a great example to everyone, God bless him. The sun is shining and there is no snow.  The beautiful trees have leaves.

    The other day Canada became the first country to ratify the Accession Protocols of Finland and Sweden to join NATO which brought the two countries a step closer to full membership. I think it will help end the war in the Ukraine. Cheers!

    Did you know right after that, Finland seized Russian frieght cars worth approx $82M?  EU wanted them to, they want protection if Russia retaliates.

    It is good as long as Russia does not attack them....then it causes war.

    I actually hear/read about many stories like the very cool story you posted.

    And if I let the 'badness' get to me, I always can go to music - - I can hear much good there.  :)
