As the feckless Biden Administration continues to gaslight, spin, and deflect blame for the soaring cost of living in the United States, most Americans are being forced to tighten their belts and cut back on everyday purchases like food and gasoline. And since the current U.S. Misery Index is higher than the previous month’s index of 11.67% , the economic situation is certainly not improving for the average American family’s wallet.
Each month, economists use the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data in an attempt to gauge the health of our economy. By adding the current U.S. unemployment rate of 3.6% to the current rate of U.S. inflation of 8.54%, economists quantify the economic well-being of the country into what is called the U.S. Misery Index.
The current U.S. Misery Index stands at a very miserable 12.14%.
It’s also worth noting, that the U.S. inflation rate hasn’t been this high since December 1981, after the economically ruinous presidency of Democrat Jimmy Carter. In turn, the Misery Index is used to gauge how average Americans are weathering the ups and downs of the U.S. economy under the Biden/Harris administration’s disastrous economic policies. So what exactly does the Misery Index tell us? First, we know that as the rate of inflation goes up, the cost of living increases. Next, as the unemployment numbers rise, more and more people fall into poverty. Consequently, the Misery Index acts as a kind of snapshot that is used to gauge the health of the economy as a whole, since both unemployment and inflation impact the average American wage earner. The US Inflation Rate rises to 8.5%, its highest level […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
