Here we are entering into the Christmas Season and again I am seeing downward momentum in our statistics. The past six months have really not been good. I think the thing that bothers me the most is the claims that our economy is getting so much better. That is a bunch of Bull!!! We still have a large portion of our people unemployed as they ran out of benefits and just quit looking. Many had to take low paying jobs to exist and that is all they are doing.
You can thank our current Administration for this and it will continue if Hillary is elected. It has been 7 years of pure torture for me and so many others. If you can really say you are better off now than eight years ago congratulations. Most are just surviving.

You can see this month was another stand still or slight decrease. Interest rates will go up this month unless something drastic happens to our Economy. The Federal Reserve has been giving hints that it will happen this month. We will probably see 4.25% rates soon and continue up for a few months. Still very good rates but we have been spoiled with sub 4%. I doubt it will go back down again.
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a muchly deserved Happy New Year to all. We will be celebrating with family and friends.
