This morning, TV news watchers were treated to a hilarious rash of Bullshit from the financial news sector. Apparently yesterday, the DOW JONES Industrial average gained over 500 points. This increase pushed the Average to its highest point ever (about 37,100 and change). What a time for a party and celebration!!!!!!

They briefly mentioned that it was a result of the Fed NOT raising interest rates at their quarterly or monthly meeting – the first time that has happened in the last year. And (according to them) this could mean all is getting better!!!!!

They also pointed to a few other economic figures (unemployment being low and the price of gas dropping to about $3.60).

THEN they have come up with a new name for it. Up to now, It has been called BIDENOMICS. This is a term they are trying to erase. People see it as bad (Hmm I wonder why and I will point out a few of the reasons below).

The Vibe Economy

The Washington Post described it this way back in July (probably during Shark Week)

The U.S. economy is starting to look almost normal. The supply chain chaos is largely over. Most items are back in stock, and car lots are full again. Growth is solid. Recession risks are fading. It’s still easy to get a job, but companies are growing pickier about whom they hire. Inflation is cooling off. Consumers are selectively splurging (especially on Taylor Swift concerts) but being a bit more cautious overall. Gas prices are down to about $3.50 a gallon — above pre-pandemic levels but similar to those in the Obama years. Even the housing market is beginning to stabilize after a frenzied buying spree in 2020 and 2021, followed by an abrupt freeze in 2022 as mortgage rates surged.

Now doesn’t that make you just feel all warm and fuzzy?? Personally it makes me want to vomit.

I have to wonder if any of them really believe the Bullshit they write.

Some Sobering Figures

60% Living Paycheck to Paycheck – This means no savings, no vacations, no dinners out at restaurants, shopping at discount grocery stores and The Dollar Store.

Average interest rate on a 30 year Mortgage is 7.12% (through 2020 it was lower than 3.5%) – This equates to an average monthly mortgage of about $3200.

Average Cost of College 4-year Education – In State $104,000. You decide how much of that will be in student loans. As an aside, the average cost at Harvard (whose President recently refused to condemn students who called for the genocide of Israel in front of Congress – then was discovered to have plagiarized her Doctoral Thesis and refuses to resign) is $344,000 – This is about par for the course at Ivy League schools.

What I am trying to point out here is that the delusional left (who control most of our Government and all of the Media) are lying their asses off about life here in the US. Preparing for another elections steal no doubt. Since the media, whose role as a check and balance on the government, has rather become the unpaid propagandists for the same government who have created the above sobering realities, we have no check other than alternative media. Thanks to the Internet, we at least have some of that.

The Silent Depression

Recently trending on TikTok (happy social media home to Generation Z) was the term Silent Depression.

Young people today face real challenge, like amassing student loan debt, sky-high rent, real wages low, inflation and prices through the roof, and the feeling that no matter how much you save, you’ll never have the American dream ideal of homeownership.

The scary (maybe funny) part about it is that they overwhelmingly voted for it. Or so the people who still believe the results of the election in 2020 want us to believe.

They were told they were voting for abortion rights, to save the environment, and to rid the world of that evil Trump.

What they got was the Silent Depression. And so did we.

Pay attention!
