Re: DOJ & some state AGs going after Apple for being a monopoly?

No, it's not OK for any AG. Our scumbag AG in WA, Bon Ferguson(D) is in on it. I own AAPL stock and I have a MacBook Air, an iPad, an I-Phone, Air-pods Pro 2 and an Apple TV. I also subscribe to Apple Music. I am fine with letting the courts decide whether Apple is engaging in monopolistic practice...

Re: US annual PPI inflation declines to 2.2% in May

Nothing to say about how crappy the economy is eh? You brought this up, and frankly it looks pretty crappy for the B.I.D.E.N. It depends on to what degree a voter is invested in the stock market. About two-thirds of my net worth is in securities; the other third is real estate. I did very well duri...

I'd say I was far better off when Trump was in charge.
Then you should definitely vote for Trump.

Re: DOJ & some state AGs going after Apple for being a monopoly?

This makes no sense. Apple has about 50% US market share and several competitors. Why do democrats insist on punishing success? I'd never buy an iPhone because I think they're overpriced but they certainly don't have a monopoly. Is it ok that the Republican Attorneys General of New Hampshire, India...

Re: Consumer prices unchanged in May and up 3.3% from a year ago

So nothing about the so-called records of 2021 and 2022? "The US travel and tourism industry has shown signs of growth in recent years, despite challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic: 2021: The industry increased by 53.6% 2022: The industry increased by 21.0% 2023: The industry added 656,000 jobs, r...

This reading followed the 2.3% increase recorded in April (revised from 2.2%) and came in below the market expectation of 2.5%. The annual core PPI rose 2.3% in the same period, coming in below April's incr...

Did not.
That was done by a U.S. District Court Judge named Carl Nichols who is a Trump-nominated judge. Judge Nichols had the option of dismissing the charges against Mr. Bannon or placing him on probation only.

Re: Consumer prices unchanged in May and up 3.3% from a year ago

I work in travel and tourism, and I can tell you that the only records set in 2021 were related to the number of people not traveling. I direct tours for the largest travel company in the world and all of my tours were cancelled in 2021. It gradually came back in 2022, and 2023 and 2024 have been b...

Re: Consumer prices unchanged in May and up 3.3% from a year ago

If more peoppe arr getting jobs. Thrn demand increases which makes it impossible for inflation to ease. It isnt a magic trick.. The unemployment rate has risen from a recent March, 2023 low of 3.4% to the current 4%. You are correct that inflation and unemployment typically have an inverse correlat...
