Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three good martinis, but you may need to squint a bit to see them. First, they welcome the admission from the green energy industry that it is thoroughly dependent upon cheap Chinese products to make solar panels and that renewed tariffs on China would hurt the industry badly. So reality smacks the green agenda in the face yet again. They also cheer the impending retirement of Maryland Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin after more than half a century of taxpayers footing his salary. A feeding frenzy among Democrats is already underway. Republicans are big underdogs but an open seat improves their odds. Jim wonders of Larry Hogan will reconsider after saying he had no interest in the race earlier this year. Finally, they welcome next week’s end to vaccine mandates for federal employees and foreign visitors, and Jim suspects that by letting mandates die quietly, the Biden administration is silently admitting they were a terrible idea.

Greg asked if we’ve learned anything from Covid. Until there are tribunals and people swinging from gallows on the National Mall, the answer is no. This will happen again. I’m doubtful the Biden administration learned anything to prevent them from doing this again.
Have we? Yes.
Well, some of us anyway.
Have they? Apparently not. At least not anything good.
