Why Don’t They Care?, by Eric Peters

The Democrats are remarkably insouciant about the mid-term elections. Maybe they know something that we don’t. It seems so much like 2020, and we know what happened then. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

It is said that the Thing shuffling up to the podium to rail against the Second Amendment and that attempts to read the script blaming Putin for the effects of his “executive orders” on energy (and so, food) prices via the closing down of gas pipelines is out of touch, because he is no longer fully aware. There is more than just the obvious evidence this may be so. There is the fact that he is nearly 80 years old and that is several years older than the age at which most people are no longer alive – and a majority of the rest are in rest homes.
