Sneaky ways the EPA and the climate combine to drive inflation

“Almost all perishable foods – dairy, meats, fruits and vegetables – have seen huge price increases.


“Almost all perishable foods – dairy, meats, fruits and vegetables – have seen price increases because of the drought out West, continued high oil and gas prices and diseases affecting crops or livestock,”
says this article on msn.com.

Notice that there is no mention of the record cold this last winter, nor the record cold just this month. Nor is there any mention of how EPA regulations are driving up the price of energy. And this is just the beginning.

“The price of a pound of ground beef increased 16.5 percent to $3.85 in May compared with a year earlier,” the article continues. “In the same period, a pound of Navel oranges increased 28.1 percent to $1.34, while a pound of American cheese increased 11.1 percent to $4.51.

I keep warning you: Make sure that you have a food supply.

  1. We are told by government economists that the inflation rate is low. However the only way these “experts” can believe this is that they do not go to the grocery store, gas filling station, etc. and realize where most people must spend their money to live.

    • I take the Government’s reports about the economy the same way I take their reports about Global Climate: With suspicion and disbelief.

      That body has cried ‘wolf’ too many times about too many stupid things that I have grown deaf to their alarmist, manipulative words.

      Perhaps a few decades of transparency and honesty would help the trust factor, but I’m not holding my breath on that one, and it’s the same story of disappointment no matter who you vote for, because crooks are everywhere.

      It doesn’t matter the name of the party. If there’s a venomous snake in your living room hissing at you, are you going to care if it’s an Asp or a Rattler?

      Just remember what last year’s winter was like financially and temperature-wise, and prepare for it. That’s what our ancestors did, why should we be different?

    • If your government is anything like mine, then you cannot trust ANYTHING it says.
      So far, 4 years into a 5-year term it hasn’t spoken one truth nor kept a single election promise.
      In fact David Cameron has done exactly the opposite on everything he promised. His killing-rate has been five or more times greater than the Gaza crisis. But he has done his best to hide it from the world.

    • The inflation is “low” because the ‘Market Basket’ of goods the BureaucRats used has changed from Steak and Lobster a couple times a week to hamburger helper and cat food.

      No. 438—PUBLIC COMMENT ON INFLATION MEASUREMENT

      May 15, 2012

      ________

      Consumer Price Index Has Been Reconfigured Since Early-1980s
      So As to Understate Inflation versus Common Experience
      CPI no longer measures the cost of maintaining a constant standard of living.
      CPI no longer measures full inflation for out-of-pocket expenditure.
      With the misused cover of academic theory, politicians forced significant underreporting of official inflation, so as to cut annual cost-of-living adjustments to Social Security, etc.
      Use of the CPI to adjust retirement benefits, private income or to set investment goals impairs the ability of retirees, income earners and investors to stay ahead of inflation.
      Understated inflation used in estimating inflation-adjusted growth has created the illusion of recovery in reported GDP.

  2. Mormons are told to store enough food for a year. How many years worth should should we store because of global cooling? Someone be realistic.

    • I was wondering the same thing.

      Considering the length of the last LIA (and that each one we go through lasts longer than the previous one), I’m thinking ‘as much as you can’ … but I neither have the space nor the money, even now, to do a lifetime supply, or 20-year or even a 5-year. I don’t know if I even broke the 1-year threshold.

      Space and money is very tight.. and that’s with both of us working above $10.10 an hour with minimal bills!

      And even though I want to buy a place with at least 6 acres, I only have .25 acres now, in the heart of a city. Not a good place to be.

      But I have a plumb, pear and apple tree. And a whole lot of roses (you can eat the rose hips for vitamin C in the winter).

      It would be nice to hear from others about how they are managing the storage of their food supplies with regards to limited space.

      • Problem with growing in the city is that as even before food prices go up or it becomes scarce, your supply will be stripped.
        And if they can’t steal it, then they’ll do a midnight glypho special on it.
        You’ll need to post a 25/8 armed guard, it’ll be that bad.

  3. I suspect that the photoshopped “birth certificate” on the internet was the result of Global Warming. It seems to cause EVERYTHING!

  4. Most people don’t know that governments demanded and scientist perfected the “Prevaricator”. It works so well that you will never see a government organization, Institution of higher learning, or for that manner a news organization without one.
