  1. Jack and Dodie – the inflation for food is much higher than the government figures show. Eggs, while they have dropped down to 2.45 per dozen (down from 4.89 two weeks ago) , are still more than 100% higher in cost than they were about 8 months ago. Last summer they had been as low as .60 (yep) a dozen. Meat is up at least 25 -50% since last summer. half and half cream (gotta have it) is now 100% higher than last summer – and that’s down from being 200% more last month. I don’t need to tell you that folks on very fixed incomes are struggling to eat well and families with kids are really hurting. And we won’t even talk about trying to buy a new car!
    Wise folks, if they haven’t already, had better save up and stock up and get ready for a really bumpy ride for the next 2-3 years. Biden and Co. ain’t yet done wrecking things .
