Hyper-Inflation Is Already Here

Obama Administration Cannot Obfuscate The Facts Any Longer

The American Thinker blog today has an excellent article on the Obama Administrations attempts to hide inflation from the American People.

Using the unemployment rate, census data and recent commodity prices, Steve McCann writes a piece today that’s an economics clinic on why these factors will have a chilling impact on our economy thereby killing any chance for an economic recovery any time soon.

Meaning: while the current worst-president-ever-community organizer – in-chief is in the Black House.

But for those of us who may not have economics degrees and understand the terms and charts Steve McCann uses in his article, I took a simpler approach.  Using grocery receipts from the last 12 months, I compiled a list of grocery staples that most American’s purchase to demonstrate the effects of inflation on our household budgets.

I do so with full understanding that the U.S. Government does not count the cost of food and fuel in the core inflation index, but there is no doubt, as all reasonable American’s know, that the price of food and fuel absolutely do impact our household budgets and as a result, our disposable income.  It is after all that “disposable income” which is used to purchase other things such as clothes, cars and other items which drive our economy.

Using receipts from the last year, here are the affects of Obama’s “economic policy” on my household at the grocery store:

  • Coffee. A 2 pound, 5 ounce container is around $12. 6 months ago it was around $7. Prior to that, the average price was $3.99.
  • Dozen Eggs. Last year, 99 cents. On sale, 79 cents. Yesterday, $3/dozen.
  • Milk. $4/gallon. The price has fluctuated so much it's hard to tell what it USED TO BE. Last time I picked it up at the local convenience store near the house about a year ago, I paid something like $2.49/gal for 2%.
  • Canned Gren Beans (Generic). 8 months ago, 33 cents for a 12 ounce can. Yesterday, same brand was $1.49
  • Flour. 5 pound bag yesterday was $7. 8 months ago it was under $2.
  • Sugar. 5 Pound Bag yesterday was $8. 8 months ago it was under $2.
  • Chicken. Over $3/pound here, it used to be around 79-99 cents per pound in the last year.
  • Beef. We don't even look at the price anymore, it's gotten that expensive and is no longer a part of our diets.

We've known this corrupt government led by the community organizer in chief has been lying for a very long time. Frankly, I’ve never believed a word this POS has said since his days here in Chicago. 

I'm fortunate enough that my wife saw all this coming months ago and began stockpiling our pantry and freezer. With the exception of milk (and occasionally eggs..) we no longer buy any of the above as our pantry has been well stocked for awhile now.

We can pass these prices up until they come back down, but not everyone we know is as fortunate. My wife has done a great job with the family food budget (she’s become a coupon maven) so she could "splurge" when something like coffee went on sale for $3.99-$5.99 some months ago and stocked up.

I just counted our pantry, I have 24 2 pound, 5 ounce Maxwell House Mountain Roast cans on the shelves. That's well over a year's worth of coffee for us. At today's prices, that's about $300 worth of coffee that should've cost about $94 at "uninflated" prices.

Every family in America that has to go to a grocery store knows that hyper-inflation is already here. Our government hides it by not including food and fuel costs in the calculation. I cannot imagine what those on retirement/fixed incomes are going through just trying to put food on their tables at these prices.

Lastly, Gasoline prices.  The cost of 87 octane unleaded here is $3.60/gallon.  Diesel is $3.85/gallon. Those are the highest prices since the summer of 2008.  With the exception of one two-week period in mid-2009, regular unleaded gasoline and diesel fuel prices have remained above $3/gallon during Obama’s pResidency.  Even with these prices nearing all-time highs, there is no talk of re-opening the Gulf for drilling, or tapping into our own natural reserves.

We all know hyper-inflation is already here.  We see it every time we go to the grocery store or stop to put gasoline in our cars or diesel in our trucks.

Thanks Obama! (/sarc)

Obama FINALLY Breaks Silence on Libya

Condemn’s Violence, Still Refuses To Name Despot Dictator

Let’s be clear about the facts in Libya:

Nine Days Of this despot dictator slaughtering his own countrymen went unanswered by the coward in chief, Barack Hussein Obama.

Nine Days, silence.

Finally today, the muslim in the white house condemned the “outrageous” crackdown by Libyan security forces on protesters.

This was Obama’s first public comment on what’s happening in Libya since protesters seeking to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi’s brutal regime. 

Gadaffi you may recall is suspected of directly ordering the bombing of TWA Flight 800 which blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland and which WikiLeaks claims to have copies of Gadffi’s direct orders to bomb it out of the sky.

Still, early this morning Obama issued his first public statement condemning a country – an entity for killing its own citizens.

What is an entity?  It’s a country, not a person.

Nowhere in his statement does Obama name Gaddafi directly.

The coward piece of shit in the White House can’t muster up the courage to condemn a third-world despot dictator for committing murder after nine days, yet this same coward piece of shit had no problem jumping into the fray in favor of Wisconsin’s public worker unions and their extortionary pensions the day Governor Walker stood his ground and said “no deal” with the unions.

Says all we need to know about the muslim in the BLACK HOUSE doesn’t it?

Obama Declares War on Democracy

Organizing America Seizes Wisconsin State House

Washington Times


Message to Wisconsin taxpayers: President Obama and the Democratic National Committee have declared war on you. Message to other states: You’re next.

The political unrest in Wisconsin, billed as some kind of grass-roots uprising, is being organized and directed by Barack Obama‘s Organizing for America and the Democratic National Committee. This development is consistent with Mr. Obama‘s instructions for supporters to “get in the face” of those who oppose them, but in this case, they are seeking to derail a lawful legislative process.

On Thursday, 14 Democratic state lawmakers fled Wisconsin’s capital to prevent the legislature from conducting official business. Dan Grandone, state director for the president’s campaign apparatus, accused Gov. Scott Walker of “ignoring Wisconsin voices today and asking for the power to drown them out permanently tomorrow.” It is important to note that the voices of which Mr. Grandone speaks are not those of the public at large. Voters sent an unmistakable message in November by taking solid majorities in the state Assembly and Senate away from Democrats and handing even greater control to Republicans. Mr. Walker, a Republican, won by six points over the incumbent Democrat.

Unions Seeking Blood in Wisconsin Conflict

Obama Abandon’s Call For “Civility” In Favor Of Hostility

Found this on CraigsList.  Any doubt left what the 2012 election’s going to be like?


These bastards think they can intimidate the rest of us?  Unions are a small percentage of the workforce anymore.  It’s only a matter of time before the backlash against these greedy assholes takes form.

Sooner rather than later, IMO.

Obama Wants Riots In Wisconsin

Folks, it's simple: the 2012 elections are playing out in the streets of Madison, Wisconsin.

Obama's support for the union's yesterday, decrying the "destruction of the unions" was nothing less than setting the table for 2012, telling those of us who do not have a cushy over-paid government job exactly what the price of "resistance" towards Obama's policies would be: union thuggery in the streets.

Make no mistake about it, I'm exactly right on this one (as I typically am ...)

Socialism’s Trajectory

ObamaCare Is Bigger Than LBJ’s Great Society

Terrence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Anyone who doubts that the trend toward socialism is pushing America toward ruin should examine the historical tables President Obama published Monday along with his $3.7 trillion budget.

In fiscal 2011, according to these tables, the Department of Health and Human Services will spend $909.7 billion. In fiscal 1965, the entire federal government spent $118.228 billion.

What about inflation? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' inflation calculator, $118.228 billion in 1965 dollars equals $822.6 billion in 2010 dollars. In real terms, the $909.7 billion HHS is spending this year is about $87.1 billion more than the entire federal government spent in 1965.

1965 was a key year in the advancement of socialism in the United States.

From 1776 until 1965, Americans generally did not rely on the federal government for health care unless they served in the military or worked in some other capacity for the federal government.

But in 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson and a Democratic Congress enacted two massive federal entitlement programs -- Medicare and Medicaid -- that fundamentally altered the relationship between Americans and the federal government by making tens of millions dependent on the government for health care.
