I’m not saying that Elizabeth Warren is the dumbest person in public life–there is a lot of competition for that title–but let’s just say she is having the worst week. First she accused Elon Musk of being a tax freeloader, just before he disclosed that he will pay $11 billion in taxes this year, more than any American in history, to Warren’s slush fund the federal government. Next she blamed skyrocketing food prices on “Big Grocery.” Seriously:
The broader point is that, according to the Democrats, we have suddenly been beset by a plethora of capitalist conspiracies, worthy of Chavez/Maduro Venezuela: Big Oil is responsible for exploding gasoline prices, auto companies–according to Warren–are to blame for rapidly rising vehicle prices, semiconductor companies (again, per the eternally clueless Ms. Warren) are behind the chip shortage, and so on.

This is why Dem policies often tend to crush small businesses. Demonizing one big target that is far away from most ordinary people's day to day life - Big Oil, Big Coal, Big Auto, Big Pharma, Big Computers, Big Phone Company, Big Electric Company, etc. - is a lot easier than trying to target thousands of small businesses whose owners are many ordinary people's neighbors.

Economic nincompoops such as Fauxcahontas are just hilariously blathering about an industry that she has ZERO knowledge about.

I can't help but think that all this bullshit from Fauxcahontas is meant to keep her in front of the cameras so she can make another play for the presidency in 2024.

It's blowing up in her face, but she's too ******* stupid to see it.  :rotf:

All we're witnessing with Watson... Warren, or whatever her name is, is an optical-illusion.  'Big microphone'.  She doesn't have any power.  No invites overseas. 

Here's the 'biggest' flub that comes to mind...   over 'Big Defense'  (notice how many times she uses the cliche; 'revolving-door', like it's 1957 or something)

Yeah, Liz... In your case, corporate CEOs really are sitting around in boardrooms, smoking cigars and giggling at you.

Guess who Portnoy is talking-about without mentioning any names:   

Stone the motorcade.
