Join Jim and Greg as they hope the American right’s support for the Canadian Freedom Convoy will refocus the GOP on championing freedom in this year’s midterms and far beyond. They also shudder as Americans in major cities are seeing 30-40 percent increases in rent but also explain how short-sighted government policies are a major contributing factor. And they discuss the ratings bust of the Beijing Winter Olympics and how Russia and the International Olympic Committee have disgraced the games to a dangerous level.

    It wasn’t just that rent amounts were LIMITED for a time, in many areas the rent was effectively ZERO for 2 years or  more.

    Regarding the Olympics, how many “Americans” actually won medals for other countries?  Maybe those should count too.

    If I remember correctly, Ed Koch, the mayor of New York, was paying $70 a month for his large apartment, because he had lived there more than 40 years. While one of his secretaries was paying over $2000 a month for a studio apartment.

    Poor people tend to move around more than rich people, so rent control ends up benefiting the rich.
