Here’s a look at the economy from a mom’s perspective: When my son was born in September 2008, a box of generic Walmart dipes was $12.89 while a box of Pampers was $19.99. My daughter was born in August 2011 and a box of generic Walmart dipes was $14.99 while the Pampers were $23.99. Our second daughter will arrive any day now and generic Walmart dipes are $19.99. I don’t know what Pampers are, although looking at the price might send me into labor. We’re in the middle of an addition and remodel and we found some stuff packed away in dipe boxes from 2008. There were more dipes per box than in today’s box. Price up, quantity down in five short years. Wipes are about the same price, but the quantity has been cut in half.

I’ve noticed the same trend. When I started the “surviving socialism” ping list some years back, it was somewhat tongue in cheek. It isn’t tongue in cheek anymore.

It's buyer beware. Mom & Pops like us are just as outraged, but that doesn't help or make it any better.
If ANY of these dreadful numbers in the economy were happening under a Repub Prez...you'd be hearing about it non-stop, 24/7. Not with the Marxist media covering for the regime.
