大侠行天下日记 我见我闻我思 0503
拜登总统就任以来， 首先面对新冠疫情之重大挑战和経済之不振， 经过多次之振兴方案 加上近来疫情之减缓， 整个商业基本重返正常， 但是尤如洪水猛兽的通货膨涨正在横扫全美， 最明显的是物价大涨和油价飈升 ，於是怨声载道， 将会影响民主党在国会选举中之前途。
首先冲激的是老百姓之荷包及各中小企业之成本 ，一位在休斯敦経营餐厅的老闆表示 ，我们进货的肉品蔬菜及原料 ，没有一样不涨价 ，同时也找不到打工的工人， 於是造成我们必须餐牌上涨的原因 ，有次我和在城西一位墨西哥餐厅老闆聊天， 他说我们用的洋葱 牛肉、 辣椒几乎上涨了一倍之多。
在二O二O年总统大选时， 在几乎七成拉丁裔是民主党之铁票， 这次看来， 这些铁票已经开始生銹了。
民生问题是我们最切心关心之事 ，从所有选举之歷史上看来， 凡是経济一蹶不振之时总统非常难予连任。
我们奉劝拜登的总统应该立即易弦更张， 立即设法结束俄乌战争， 改善和中国大陆紧张关係，让全世界共同解决病毒问题， 交通运输流畅， 所谓通货膨胀和油价问题即可免费迎刃而解， 反之， 战争持续 ，难民潮不断， 物价飞涨， 受苦的还是平民百姓 ，更可怕的事， 扩大战争将使人类遭受更大之浩劫。
Hard Days Under Inflation
Since President Biden took office last year he first faced major changes with the Covid-19 epidemic and the economic downturn. After many stimulus bills in Congress and the recent slowdown of the pandemic, the nation’s business has basically returned to normal. But in recent months, inflation has been sweeping across the nation. The most obvious sign of inflation is the sharp rise in the prices of food and gasoline.
Recently I was in a restaurant in the International District. The owner told me that all his meat, vegetables and raw materials are going up, even when he can’t find workers to work in the restaurant. Last Saturday we were in a Mexican restaurant and they also have the same complaint.
In the last presidential election President Biden got more than 70% of the Latino votes. That was the major reason he got elected. Lately, according to the polls, many Latino voters might change their minds and support the Republicans. A lot of them are considering to let the other party have a chance to do the job.
When we look back at history and all the major elections, the economy has been the most important issue. No president just can’t make it if the people's livelihoods are in a bad condition.
We advise President Biden to change his direction and immediately try to end the war in Ukraine, improve the tensions with China and solve the virus problem with the whole world. The inflation and oil price problems can be solved over a period of time.
On the contrary, if the war in Ukraine drags on, and more and more refugees continue to leave their homeland, it will be the civilian people who will suffer.
