My friends out of California, using the same amount of energy, their utility bill jumped from $250 to $613. A lot has to do with the less amount of natural gas that was in production and could be used that drove the price up, the remaining big part of the Natural Gas Tax imposed by the Inflation Reduction Act of Joe Biden and the Congress. What do we call that? A big fat political lie.

    LEADERS NEGOTIATE DEBT CEILINGS AND SPENDING, FAILURES PLAY POLITICS

    LEADERS NEGOTIATE DEBT CEILINGS AND SPENDING, FAILURES PLAY POLITICS

    BROOKINGS REPORT ON DEBT CEILING: https://www.brookings.edu/2023/01/25/how-worried-should-we-be-if-the-debt-ceiling-isnt-lifted/The debt limit caps the total amount of allowable outstanding U.S. federal debt. The U.S. hit that limit—$31.4 trillion—on January 19, 2023, but the Department of the Treasury has been undertaking a set of “extraordinary measures” so that the debt limit does not yet bind. The Treasury estimates that those measures will be sufficient at least through early June. Sometime after that, unless Congress raises or suspends the debt limit before June, the federal government will lack the cash to pay all its obligations. Those obligations are the result of laws previously enacted by Congress. “Raising the debt limit is not about new spending; it is about paying for previous choices policymakers legislated.” If you like my podcasts, please help by supporting me at: http://www.buymeacoffee.com/michaellodgeIf you would like to have a 60 minute business consultation session, go to my website at: http://www.lodge-co.comQuestions about business, send me an email at: thebusinessadvisor@zmail.com Get bonus content on Patreon The best place to learn about business is by joining our daily business podast: https://plus.acast.com/s/the-business-advisor.

    I AM PLANNING A BUCKET LIST TRIP TO ALASKA, MAKING FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY

    I AM PLANNING A BUCKET LIST TRIP TO ALASKA, MAKING FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY

    If you like my podcasts and blogs, support me by going to: http://www.buymeacoffee.com/michaellodge
    In April I am going to do a bucket list trip from South Carolina to Alaska. I am trying to decide if I should go by train to Seattle and catch the ferry, or drive across America to Seattle and put my vehicle on the Ferry to Alaska. I would like to do the latter. However, I am going to have to get a new vehicle to do that with. I have thought about getting a small traveling van to drive in, but have you priced the costs of these vans and how many miles on one them?
    Van Prices - Outrages: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/574454134547470/?ref=browse_tab&referral_code=marketplace_top_picks&referral_story_type=top_picks
    So, I will have to see what I can do. The ferry ride is a five day journey, you do not stop in Canada. I have put a link on the ferry below. So, today I am taking some time to plan the trip.

    Vlog Camera: If you vlog, I would really like to know what kind of camera system you are using. Now remember, I am old. So the make it simple for me. This is the one I am looking at. https://youtu.be/cx1KxeER7wQ
    Everyone needs to have a bucket list that includes travel. And don't e afraid to travel alone. You meet all kinds of different and interesting people along the way. I love hearing the stories of these people as we travel together, people you don't even know. However, you get to know people very well as you travel across this great nation.
    Now I have another bucket list and that is to visit all 50 states. 16 states to go.

    BIDEN NEEDS TO STOP LYING ABOUT THE ECONOMY

    BIDEN NEEDS TO STOP LYING ABOUT THE ECONOMY

    Biden Dragged: https://www.foxnews.com/media/biden-dragged-touting-gas-price-drop-americans-struggle-make-ends-meet-what-planet-onBiden keeps lying about the nations economy and it has got to stop. He needs to hire better economic advisors, he needs to listen to the American people, and he needs to focus on the economy and not on a political agenda. The American people are hurting and his lies do greater harm. His financial views are now seen as garbage. If the President really wants to help the American people he should be sitting down with members of Congress and the Senate and begin negotiating on the debt ceiling and spending cuts. That would show the American people that he is doing something. But, there has to be results, not political spin. If he does nothing, then the American people can expect that the next two years will be financial hard.If you like my podcasts, please support me by going to: http://www.buymeacoffee.com/michaellodgeIf you would like some consultation time with me, go to: http://www.lodge-co.com and schedule on-line.

    UNETHICAL ACTIONS FROM BIDEN ON DOWN, CREATES A NATION IN CHAOS

    UNETHICAL ACTIONS FROM BIDEN ON DOWN, CREATES A NATION IN CHAOS

    We are seeing the unethical act of wokeness that is driving unethical actions in businesses, churches and schools. This has got to end. Politics is never ethical. Political agenda's through wokeness is never ethical. We need to start teaching more about ethics, and board of directors have got to examine their ethics rules within their organizations. Politics should not be allowed one inch within organizations. Their decisions on how they are going to run their business or cancel out others though social wokeness, must end. It should no longer be tolerated. The more woke the entity, the more unethical behavior.
    Ethics is the ability to make decision on what is right or wrong in our human conduct. This is the belief that moral principles is vital in our every day lives. Businesses must start focusing on their ethics and eliminate politics, wokeness, from their operations. Conflict, from unethical actions, is very expensive and can destroy companies from within. I encourage all leaders to review their policies on ethics in the workplace.
    And government, you had better start holding those accountable that do not practice good ethical behavior.
