    Prices are up and inflation is increasing. Biden is President with the usual tax and spend way of the Democrats. “Current Annual inflation for the 12 months ending in March 2021 is 2.62% up sharply from 1.68% in February.”

    Mason City Youth Hockey has predictably been very lax & welshing in their promise to the River City Renaissance Project.
    According to the Mason City Council Meeting minutes of May 4th 2021:
    “The city has collected $50,000 toward the overall capital campaign from Mason City Youth Hockey leaving $1,450,000 to collect”
    And yet the cheap bastards will want total control of the so called Multi-Purpose from Sept to April.

    Really hard to believe that you and the RepublicQn leadership (ha ha ha) still back a loser. The only reason Biden got elected is that his opponent was trump. Put anyone else up against Biden, they win. But the leadership (ha ha ha) decided they would stake their futures on a washed-up ex-television reality show host who lost in 2020 by more votes than he won by against a woman who most everyone hated in 2016. His presidency was a novelty for a while, but once the mainstream Republicans realized he was a bad President, they left him. That is what makes the recent revival of trump love by McCarthy and others so puzzling. He is a loser. His political career is over and he will never be President again nor will any of his spawn. It was like electing the senior class idiot as President of the class or Homecoming King and wishing you could do a re-vote because it became quite evident what a dumb idea that was. I believe they think that they need that 10% of the population who want him back as President to help them overcome the popularity that has now moved back to the other side – the Democrats.

      House Republicans ousted Rep. Liz Cheney as House GOP conference chair and set the stage for her to be replaced with someone less keen on challenging former President Trump’s stolen election claims and lingering grip on the party.

      Your beliefs are like any given religion. Your hypothesis of a “stolen election” exists with no proof but yet your faith forces you to believe. I think you think the election is stolen because in your mind, your side was entitled to win it. When that didn’t happen – and Trump lost, even while many GOP won – you feel like it was stolen and created this fantasy, with the help of the professional liars and conspirators lurking in the depths of the internet. You parrot their talking points with no original thought of your own, as you cling to this dream of overturning this very fair election. I encourage you to step out of the darkness that engulfs your existence and seek rationality.

      You are way off and ignorant. Russia has evolved. They know that a conventional war versus US pays no divided. This is why they are hacking our computer systems. This is why they are meddling in our elections. This is why they have American pol’s over to Moscow to weaken their resolve to stay loyal to their country. This is why they are stoking the morons in cyberspace to groom their hate and low self-esteem to cause internal division. So make no mistake, Russia is the enemy and they want to bring America down. They are just doing it in ways that people don’t notice as readily as a bomb blowing up in their living room.
