It's less Harry Potter and more H.M. The Queen:

"Annus horribilis," a Latin term that means ...


... A new season of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'

Ktonos: It's less Harry Potter and more H.M. The Queen:

In 1992 she had the big devastating fire at Windsor Castle, and Diana and Prince Charles separated, which at the time was an unprecedented thing for a future king. Can't recall what else happened that year for her, but those were the two big ones.

'xactly. I remember hearing that speech on the news because she and her fam had been in the news all year because of Charles and Di and the fire. I seem to recall the fire was the event that prompted her to start paying income tax.

When you like big butts, there's no such thing as an Annus Horribilis.

Oh hell no subby.  I fell for that too many times back in the 90's.

Nah. I can't recall a group of more unremarkable anuses (ani?) that weren't on MTV.

If we spent 5% of the bandwidth on an entire political party trying to turn the country towards fashion as we do to a an extra twenty five cents on a gallon milk...we might have a chance of beating them back.

Which is why we are well and truely farked.

It's a spell that summons horrible financial writers to write horribly about a Democratic administration.  Traditional at the start of every new year.

Just today, I posted a photo on Facebook of an amusing sign I saw in Italy using "annus horribilis". I highlighted my favorite part.

fascism!  not fashion, if only they cared about fashion.  Instead they worship a dude that wears oversized suits and ties down past his dick.

Is that the Latin name for large posteriors that look like 40lbs of cottage cheese in yoga pants?

Spandex is a privilege, not a right.

I have an idea: let's spend the year on a "voting rights" bill that no one cares about, especially one that may or may not even help Democrats at the polls.  Who's with me?

Nobody seemed to care much about inflation in the 80s. It's the recessions people don't like. Losing your job is worse than a 5% price hike on kit kat bars.

Oh, they did. They just blamed it on Carter.

I care about it. I do not think that gerrymandered state legislatures should have the power to override public voting. I think that states should not turn voting into an undue hardship for the poor. If you don't think that's important, what the fark is wrong with you?

If only there was something we could do to curb inflation. Oh well, guess we'll just see what happens.
 
2022-01-13 9:43:37 AM  
Does the article bother to mention that, totally coincidentally, corporations are reporting record profits despite this "inflation"?

It's almost like the "inflation" we're seeing is more like price gouging. But that would imply that the Invisible Hand of the Free Market exists primarily to pick our pockets, so that can't be true.

People care much less why they're paying more, they just know they ARE paying more.

I'm trying to work out if you know the pic isn't at that website.
Also wondering how much a pixel of Goatse costs.
Which inevitably leads to the question; how much to buy enough pixels to actually see the picture that you may (or not) have been trying to get people to view.

Anybody who ever took an Economics class saw this coming. How handy for the GOP that they get to blame Biden for not cleaning up the mess.
