I just came home from grocery shopping, and filling a few propane tanks.
Look.... I'll be as nice about this as I can manage.....
Government statistics about 'inflation' are sheer and utter bullshit. They are politically constructed flim-flammery designed to fool the fools and deflect discontent.
A can of peas is $1, and that's the one ON SALE. A ring baloney is $12. A can of evaporated milk is $1.39 A can of corned beef....... the cheapest one.....$5.49! The lowest price on any chunk of beef in the place... $4.49 a pound, and that was so far from a prime cut there was a picture a smiling doggie on it.
The funny thing.... those sheer BS government statistics on inflation make a point of leaving some things out of the equations. Things like..... FOOD..... and FUEL..... and HOUSING. You know... the things we all spend most of our money on.
Buy it now folks.... buy it while you can.... before your Dollars are worth even less.... and that will be tomorrow.
