Lower Than Expected Prices
Lower-than-expected prices are certainly welcome news after a string of elevated monthly increases. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose “only” 0.4% in October while excluding food and energy. That said, consumer price inflation is well above the Fed’s target rate of 2%, which likely will keep the FOMC biased towards over-tightening, rather than loosening in the foreseeable future.

Small Business Optimism Index Declined for the First Time Since June
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Small Business Optimism Index declined 0.8 points in October, to 91.3. This marks the first decline in the headline index since June. However, persistent inflation, higher interest rates and economic uncertainty has kept the headline index the 49-year average of 98 for ten straight months. Wells Fargo04

There is no more drilling. NO MORE DRILLING!” “We are shutting down coal plants across the USA.” “We are going to wind and solar, they are much cheaper than oil and gas.”
What kind of an idiot would say such things? Joseph Robinette Biden, the moron of all morons.
Watching the election returns Tuesday night brought forth the stunning realization that around half the electorate in the United States are happy with the direction of the country. How is that possible? Inflation, rampant crime, illegal immigration, sexualization of our children, a weakened military, wind and solar over oil and gas, a weak economy. I just don’t get it. Fetterman the senator from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania? The man cannot speak a coherent sentence. I have empathy for him as he recovers from his stroke but to install him in the senate is preposterous.
I would suggest that the media and politicians STOP offering their outcome predictions as they cause one party to vote and the other to stay home. How else do you explain such a defeat?
Oh, early mail in balloting is a scam designed by the Marxists. Did you notice how many refused to debate their opponent until all or most of the mail-ins were harvested? Fetterman, for instance. What a scam, and it is being allowed.

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
