One Truth at a Time (History)



November/December 2022

Independently of party color or affiliation, President Biden's turning 80 and becoming the first octogenarian to hold the office, as he mulls a reelection bid, should make us all proud of the strides we, as a society, have made fighting age discrimination.

We can only hope that other types of discrimination will cease soon, as well, no matter the race, color, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, social or economic or employment status,
religion, national origin, etc.

NASA’s Artemis I mission's Orion spacecraft is speeding toward a lunar orbit after a historic rocket launch in the early morning hours of November 16, 2022. The mission is part of NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to create a sustained human presence on the moon and push on to deeper-space operations. No one has touched down on the lunar surface since 1972; that's just about half a century!

At different stages during the flight toward and around an orbit that will take it around 40,000 miles beyond the moon, before it races back to Earth after about 26 days, Orion will face radiation exposure, use solar arrays to generate power, test communications and propulsion systems and, lucky she, forget about inflation, recession, the war in Ukraine, other sweet geopolitical tensions, FTX's crypto collapse, and so many more delights.

Wondering if stocks can go to the moon too. May Orion take a few shares, please.

Thank you.

Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc (HLT) remains a core holding of Bill Ackman's Pershing Square. Nice defensive play. Not buying, though. Tech and long-duration stock collapse is starting to reveal even more compelling opportunities.

Fight Inflation, Save Monies, Eat Avocados

Groceries keep going up, but avocados are down. Thank bumper crops in Mexico and drop in demand from Europe or China, courtesy of the war in Ukraine and Covid curbs.

Guacamole anyone?

Not Everything's Inflated: Advocate Avocados

Russia's defense minister said 200,000 men had entered the army as part of a mobilization drive started in September.

Not one on the front line will be #Putin.
