Chicago Fed’s national activity index moderates for third straight month in September
National Activity index slips to 0.27 in September from 1.11 in August
The numbers: The Chicago Fed’s national activity index, which is designed to gauge overall U.S. economic activity, fell to 0.27 in September from a revised 1.11 in the prior month. The index’s three-month moving average, which tries to smooth out volatility, moved down to 1.33 from 3.22 in August.

A zero value of the index indicates the national economy is expanding at its historic trend rate of growth.

The August reading was revised from an initial reading of 0.79.


Big picture: This is the third straight weaker reading in the index. It fits with worries that the economy is faltering after a burst of activity earlier in the summer. Additional fiscal support for the economy still seems blocked in Congress.

Just an FYI - Dropped off Mail-In ballot In-Person? Be sure to keep checking your ballot status

With all the corruption in the GOP and efforts to suppress votes, my big fear is a massive amount of challenges of mail-in ballots, even those dropped off in-person

I have verified our three ballots here were accepted and will be counted but I do intend to keep checking on that as the election approaches. If, for some reason, a challenge is made, I want to be aware and be ready to take action!

So this happened near downtown Orlando this weekend

Events happening near Amway Center to inspire minority voters
Community leaders come together for Central Florida Vote Fest
Orange County community leaders are joining pastors and civic-based organizations to host the Central Florida Vote Fest, aimed at getting more minorities and African Americans to vote.


Organizers said the purpose of the Central Florida Vote Festival is to energize and engage minority and Black voters to get out and vote early.


“This weekend, it was our goal to make it exciting, that voting is exciting and people want to be engaged and participate,” Russell said.


“Without your voice, there will be no change,” McRae said. “We want to take every excuse away from our communities saying, ‘I couldn’t do it.’ We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to cast their vote.”

College student from suburban Chicago dies of coronavirus after leaving campus (in Dayton, OH)

A college student from suburban Chicago has died of coronavirus.

Michael Lang, 18, was a native of La Grange and a freshman at the University of Dayton.

The campus said that Lang left campus on Sept. 13 to "return home for remote study" and that on Oct. 22, he died of coronavirus-related complications "following a lengthy hospitalization."

"The loss of Michael calls our campus community to honor his memory and support those who are affected by his passing. Please respect the family's request for privacy at this time," University of Dayton leaders said in a statement.

Yeah. Youth are immune. Affects no one

Holy shit! Did you see that??! (World Series Game 4!)



That was insane!!

Tweet of the night!! "This is bat country"

We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold.

Too. Freaking. Funny.

How many rallies has the traitor held today?

And every one of them he repeats that we have “hydrosonic missiles”

Not a single one of his aides, speech writers, or idiot kids care to correct him

trump/republicans sued to stop ballot counting in NV. They ... LOST

my @NevadaAG’s Office just defeated Pres. Trump's & @NVGOP's request for a temporary restraining order to stop the counting of the ballots.

Again I say, we will always protect the right to vote, and we won't let it be suppressed.
