Economy Tweets

From Monday…

I googled this and found the following articles:

  • Yahoo!finance (01/26/2024): Biden vs. Trump on the economy: And the winner is …
  • Yahoo!finance (01/20/2024): From LBJ to Biden: How the Economy Performed Under Each President

The third article, I just found interesting.

My take aways from the article:

By and large a President doesn’t have that much control over the economy at the time their in office (duh). Inflation is the big economic drag on the Biden Presidency as far as voters go. Exports and job growth is higher under President Biden than Twice Impeached 45. All three articles adjusted for inflation.

Apparently, the community notes have stopped copying over with the tweet; probably cause I have to embed the tweets now–versus copying a link to them…

Anyhoo, he got community noted on the above tweet…

Financial Times doesn’t allow for copying and pasting of their article…

I verified the percentages used–using the searchable chart; Data explorer: consumer price inflation.

Captain Larry L. Taylor Tweet

President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. to Award the Medal of Honor:

On September 5, 2023, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., will award the Medal of Honor to Captain Larry L. Taylor, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry.   

On June 18, 1968, near the hamlet of Ap Go Cong, Republic of Vietnam, then-First Lieutenant Taylor was serving as a team leader of a helicopter light-fire team deployed in support of a long-range reconnaissance patrol that had been surrounded by an enemy force.  First Lieutenant Taylor and his wingman arrived at the contact site and, once overhead, Taylor radioed the patrol team and asked the four Soldiers to mark their location with flares. Using the illumination as a reference point, he and his wingman strafed the enemy with mini-guns and aerial rockets. Braving intense ground fire, the two Cobra gunships continued to make low-level attack runs for the next 45 minutes.

With both helicopters nearly out of ammunition and the enemy still closing in, Taylor reconnoitered the escape route the team intended to take. Returning to the patrol team’s location, Taylor learned that a plan to rescue the Soldiers with a UH-1 “Huey” helicopter had been canceled because it stood almost no chance of success. Running low on fuel, with the patrol team nearly out of ammunition, Taylor decided to extract the team using his two-man Cobra helicopter, a feat that had never been accomplished or even attempted.

He directed his wingman to fire his remaining mini-gun rounds along the eastern flank of the patrol team and then return to base camp. Taylor fired his own remaining mini-gun rounds along the team’s western flank, using his Cobra’s landing lights to draw the enemy’s attention while the patrol team headed southeast toward a nearby extraction point Taylor had designated.

When the team reached the site, Taylor landed his Cobra under heavy enemy fire and with complete disregard for his personal safety. The patrol team climbed aboard, grabbing on to rocket-pods and skids, and Taylor carried them to a safe location before landing them back on the ground.

Taylor’s conspicuous gallantry, his profound concern for his fellow Soldiers, and his intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.

PERSONAL BACKGROUND:

Captain Taylor was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  On June 5, 1966, he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserve, and entered the Regular Army on August 14, 1966.  He received training at the U.S. Army Armor School, Fort Knox, Kentucky, and the U.S. Army Primary Helicopter School, Fort Wolters, Texas.  On June 30, 1967, he qualified as an Army Aviator.  He later served in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot from August 1967 to August 1968.  Other military decorations include multiple awards of the Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal.  He was honorably released from active duty on August 31, 1970, having attained the rank of Captain, and was discharged from the U.S. Army Reserve on October 17, 1973.
