Inflation rose 3.3% in May – not good news though. Recession, not price reductions

Sharing is Caring!

It may look like good news and the media will slant it to a FJ Biden win – but the reality isn’t price reductions – its a complete slow down of the economy.

I am in construction and I can say that bid activity – there are no bids going on. Its gone completely quiet with new work.

People are in the usual election year paralysis – but its much more extreme than past years.

I think we’ve hit the point where people simply have no money left to spend. the socialists have bled the middle class dry.
