Gallup, you really need to find more credible writers for your Obama Cult propaganda.
Looked her up, she’s based in DC.
If you visit DC or NoVa, the world is a beautiful place.
Life is good there.
Ted Cruz’s fault.
OBAMACARE, the gift that will just keep on giving.
“CONSUMER CONFIDENCE DROPS RECORD AMOUNT DUE TO THE CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS BRINGING TO LIGHT THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE OF AMERICA THAT LOOMS IN THE NEAR FUTURE”.
Obamacare is going to have a negative affect on Christmas sales.
Designed by Liberals.
One news item that has appears to be kept quiet might be the decrease in optional consumer spending even in N. Californicator land.
Starting about 2 weeks ago, my wife and a few friends have seen a decrease of customers where discretional income is spent:
For example: Medium $ to Upscale restaurants during lunch hours. Hair saloons, fingernail/toenail spas, coffee break time at the $4/cup places, and the upscale grocery stores.
Apparently, Halloween spending was trending down, and I have yet to see any articles noting that. However, a very reliable site was projecting a fair sized downward trend of spending:
Halloween Spending and Retail Buying Trends 2013 - 2005 - Sales Predictions
Halloween will not be a treat for U.S. retailers, according to the annual Halloween Spending Survey conducted by the National Retail Federation (NRF). In every way that consumers increased their Halloween spending in 2012, they intend to decrease it in 2013, according to the 2013 Halloween spending survey. If consumer spending actually matches consumer intentions, retailers will be ringing $1 billion less in sales in the month of October. It is worth noting that this survey was completed long before the U.S. government shutdown spooked consumers, so Halloween sales numbers will likely be even scarier when retailers are counting up their 2013 Halloween loot.
How about the negative impact re the reality of the real costs of ObozoscamScare.
Look at the pre Black Friday ads by major retail companies and their pushing of lay away plans. If they weren’t concerned, they wouldn’t be spending a ton of TV ad money on pre Black Friday ads and Christmas lay away plans.
She should read this:
Ludwig von Mises, SOCIALISM
This is the classic refutation.
For the Leftists “The Shutdown” has replaced “Bush”.

Do you think not knowing what ObamaCare is going to cost (or do knowing what ObamaCare is going to cost) is going to drive Christmas spending down. Do you think Retail stores are going to think about this when they do their seasonal hiring?
This news is racist.
People found out in October that they are going to be without hundreds of dollars each month because Obamacare ain’t free. Even lotto sales will suffer.
With the abject failure of obamacare, maybe a majority now realizes that children are running the show. (We FReepers knew that since 2009.)
This economy is literally a house of cards.
Her and her ilk will be trying the same thing here shortly when the October jobs report comes out.
