    Economic good news

    Stuff we don't hear about with all the focus on Kavanaugh hearings...

    Meanwhile, the Conference Board reported Tuesday that the Consumer Confidence Index "unexpectedly" rose to 138.4, the highest it's been since 2000. This is a 9% gain so far this year, and a 24% increase in this index since January 2017.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Which is why this whole Christine Ford thing is happening - to distract from how well the country is doing under Trump's leadership. What else are they going to attack him on?

    You are such a putz.

    This was yesterday's news...here is the Conference Board's site: https://www.conference-board.org/dat...confidence.cfm I've posted this for you on numerous occasions as well. STILL too stupid to look it up. STILL too lazy to read something other than propaganda.

    Please go look up the definition of the word unexpected...then email it to the author of your story. For each economic data point that is surveyed, compiled and then released there expects a general opinion...sometimes the consensus opinion is a set number...sometimes it is a range. It the actual number that is released is outside of consensus...it is "unexpected"...which conforms neatly to the definition of the words expected and unexpected.

    The news from the Conference Board was good...the inferences made by your propaganda site were, as usual, poor. Of course, all those points have been debunked before. You are just STILL too stupid to understand.
