U.S. consumers face "serious" inflation in the months ahead for clothing, food and other products, the head of Wal-Mart's U.S. operations warned Wednesday talking to USA Today. And if Wal-Mart which is at the very bottom of commoditized consumer retail, and at the very peak of avoiding reexporting of US inflation by way of China is concerned, it may be time to panic, or at least cancel those plane tickets to Zimbabwe, which is soon coming to us.

We’re entering The Perfect Storm.
Time to relearn those sewing skills your mom tried to teach you! Make our own clothes, grow our own food. People survived centuries living that way. Sounds good.
The average american has so much stored fat that they can survive a long time before becoming mal nutritioned
Hoo wooda thunk it.

Once again Beck is right.
He certainly is right. I hope we don’t wake up one day and Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, et al are no longer to be found. It could be a matter of time.
Hershey chocolate just said that because sugar has more than doubled in price in a year, that they’re raising prices 10%. Perfect timing, just in time for Easter.
FYI, the garden is coming along nicely. With about 30 varieties of fruits and vegetables, almost everything is up and growing. Just waiting on the peppers and asparagus but that’s to be expected.
Nah, let's just put the TEA kettle back on the stove, grow a Victory garden - and tell the Oligarchic Wallmart Rainbow SOB's where they can grow their carrots.

If the collectivist fraudsters are hungry - LET THEM EAT A$$PAPER

What makes up the triad?

Thanks to our government preventing us from drilling and spending like there is no tomorrow.
There is no inflation, nothing to see here. Move along.
Learn to save seeds...learn THIS year.

The only Hershey chocolate I buy are Cadbury Eggs. This year they are $.85 each. Atrocious. I will not buy anymore.
Although I am probably wrong, they seem smaller too boot.
“U.S. consumers face “serious” inflation”
