Where's That Inflation I Was Promised?

You are right. Don't forget that not only are the prices going up but, the sizes and weights are also shrinking. Do the manufacturers of products think that we don't notice when a bag of potato chips is only half full and the weight is 15 percent less? Do they think we don't notice that a 33 cent candy bare used to be 2.2 ounces and is not 1.5 ounces and costs $1.29? Well, I have stopped purchasing them altogether. So, they think they are making 30 to 40 percent more when I have stopped purchasing them 100 %. I believe there are more like myself. They talk about the printing of money. That is like the skin on an onion compared to the real inflationary act of creating loans on automobiles and houses out of thin air. Economists are like weather forecasters. How can someone be wrong so often and still keep their job? Economists are highly inflationary in themselves as they contribute nothing to goods and services.

One thing that has helped stave off the progress of tyranny is the large numbers of people opposing it. Overwhelming the system makes it a numbers game; oh wait, that is what they are trying to do with the illegal immigrant situation isn't it? That is another subject; it is not illegal immigration, it is an invasion which the government is encouraging.
Maybe 5% of the population represents more than 50% of their business. I could understand that because I haven't set foot on BK property for more than 10 years. It was because their burgers were turning into pumped up air marshmallows including the sponge patties in them. The real kicker was the introduction of GMO everything in them. Someone above bragged about the GMO saving the world; are you kidding? Where did you come up with that? Do some research.
Yes, get the money now under any pretense and then start writing illegal executive orders. It would not be the first time he misused allocated funds.

I also must add that the murder falls on the heads of the leaders, not the troops.

There is a word for the situation where troops are sent without a declaration of war; the word is MURDER.

It seems to me that people who are too lazy to work are also too lazy to go vote. There also seems to be more trouble than usual at the ballot boxes. We need to keep the voting system honest by watching for unusual circumstances that lead to fraud.

I am a non-smoker all my life. I still support the right for smokers to smoke as long as they don''t blow it in my face. I have known many non-offensive smokers who have little impact on others. If I don't like smoking, I can stay out of bars and restaurants that allow it. My main objection about the gay issue is not that they are doing it, they have since long before I was born; it is that they are trying to cram it into schools where it is not even appropriate to discuss heterosexual subjects.

Growing Rejection of Common Core

What is very disheartening is that local leaders are selling our birthright for a mess of pottage. They are pathetic in their defense of common core while both hands are in the cookie jar and their mouth is so full that you can barely understand what they are saying.

The root word for Common Core is Communism and Central planning.
