Target accidentally debunks a socialist narrative

Wa Ex: For years, socialists and progressives have peddled a narrative that the true cause of soaring inflation is not the trillions of dollars printed and spent by the government during the pandemic, but corporate greed. That argument never made much sense to those educated in economics, yet even the everyday person can surely see how silly it is now that corporations are slashing their prices en masse. 

Target just announced that it is reducing prices on more than 5,000 items, such as milk, meat, bread, soda, fresh fruit and vegetables, snacks, yogurt, peanut butter, coffee, diapers, paper towels, and pet food. more

  1. The democrats are a bus with more people being tossed under it than actually riding on it.

    Corporations & rich people support democrats and their stupid causes in order not to get thrown under the bus by powerful democrats. The democrats use that money and power coming from corporations & rich people to loot the treasury, and when the resultant inflation comes, they blame inflation on corporations and rich people, when none of them really had much say in this awful money policy with the exception of defense contractors.

    The stupid democrats are about to kill their golden goose, and their street base won’t help them because of their support of the IDF.

  2. I agree that this is indeed evidence that government edicts are the core cause of inflation.

    However, I do not believe in any way shape or form that these companies perceive inflation’s root cause. They are doing this because they’re losing customers because the competition is taking them away.

  3. They are doing this to help reelect the senile doofus-in-chief.

    Joe said inflation is caused by high prices.

    Target obediently lowers prices.

  4. corporations lower prices per FJB and media pressure
    corporations verge on bankruptcy as bottom line approaches zero
    FJB tells Treasury to print even more money faster and then
    tells Congress to pass bills to support bankrupt corporations

  5. Tried to explain to an Obama daughter that corporations do not pay taxes. You do. Corporations are forced to collect taxes, then give the taxes to the government so the government can waste them. Almost every tax/price increase can be traced back to a government decision. Thanks to the MSM and the Teacher’s unions, most people believe the lie about greedy corporations.

  6. Nobel prize winning economist Milton Friedman states that inflation is ALWAYS an affirmative policy choice. Joe Stupid (or whoever is in charge) consciously has chosen inflation.

  7. Fuck Target. Haven’t shopped there in years, and never will again. Wasn’t that impressed with them, anyways. Always reminded me of an upscale K-Mart.

  8. “Never forget most Democrats in DC never had to actually work for a living.”

    In or out of DC and RINOs too.
