We now grow our own beef and eggs. It seems to be saving us more and more...
Worse than Carter. The king of suck.
The saddest thing is all of us who lived through the peanut years and never thought it would be that bad again. Sadder still is mr. mulato making us consider jimmaaaaahs presidency the halcyon days.
Huge amount of reduced, past-date meat in the stores lately.
People have adjusted to the new prices faster then the stores have.
This is impossible because the Fed tells us that infinite money printing cannot be inflationary.
Hey, all these farm animals cause extra CO2, so therefore, it’s for our own good.
(Don’t mention that the poor and barely making it are hardest hit, paying extra for staple food and things like that)
They will adjust, and then the price is going to really skyrocket!
Economy no longer seems to be a deciding election issue.
Too many enlisted in the entitlement army.
(at least until the markets begin to reject the fake money used to pay them)
That’s about an 8% inflation rate over the past year!
Has anyone seen such a number reported by msm filth?
What was last year’s COLA for SS benefits?
Even more sad, in the Carter era the majority of Americans still had the sense to sour on him and boot him after four years.
We still have WAAAAAY too many Obama Kool-Aid drinkers roaming around.
Oh, there’s a parody song in the making...
Gotta find something to replace “domo arigato” though...
“domo arigato, Mr Mulato”
What was last years COLA for SS benefits?
Yeah, especially vs increases in EBTs.
Good thing I have cooler full of game.
My family shares a giant freezer. Its our community freezer that holds surplus of game or fish killed or caught throughout the year. Duck, deer, frogs, fish, crawdads, etc.
Rules: Whatever you kill/catch, take as much as you want to store at home. Put what you can’t keep at home in the freezer at the warehouse.
Everyone take what you need out of the freezer anytime you need it. (we trust)
All family get-togethers are eaten out of the community freezer.
Rarely we go to the grocery store for meat. For beef and chicken or pork we pool our money and buy bulk from the wholesaler in town. (he’s extended family too)
Donno where they gotya, Mr. Mullato..Donno..
