Inflation now at 40-year high...pay no attention to that though...

Jan 6 hearings are definitely where it's at!

https://www.cnbc.com/2022/06/10/cons...-may-2022.html

Quote:
The consumer price index rose 8.6% in May from a year ago, the highest increase since December 1981. Core inflation excluding food and energy rose 6%. Both were higher than expected.

Surging food, gas and energy prices all contributed to the gain, with fuel oil up 106.7% over the past year.

Shelter costs, which comprise about one-third of the CPI, rose at the fastest 12-month pace in 31 years.

The rise in inflation meant workers lost more ground in May, with real wages declining 0.6% from April and 3% on a 12-month basis.
Let's go Brandon!

As I have said numerous times, sign me up for that 8.6% inflation. My business supplies are up a hell of a lot more than that. I can't pass it on either as damn near all my currently active customers cater to hobbyists.

Just make the minimum wage $15 and all will be fine.

Just make the minimum wage $20 and all will be fine.

Just make the minimum wage $30 and all will be fine.

Mostpost will be in soon to let us know inflation right now is a GOOD thing.

Meanwhile, in the non-taxpayer-supported-retiree world, people are suffering and can't make ends meet. The next few months will be extra rough.

Very astute.

The people who have worked a lifetime are being screwed on everything from Social Security --- WHICH IS NOT BEING ON THE DOLE --- to paying their own student loans.

Hey... old white folk have to die, right?

Damn! I like baloney and grilled cheese. The last package of baloney was $6.99 I bought two weeks ago and thought WTF, $7 for a package of baloney.
I did not know that was cheap.

What I pay for electricity is one of the few things that had no price increase in the last year, heating oil was up 25%.

What are you people griping about? Inflation is a high class problem. Just like Brandon and company said about supply chain issues.

Has anyone noticed that not one of these transitory, high class problems is going away?

My elliptical cross-trainer is still on a ship in Long Beach harbor, I think.

I read yesterday that the average Americanís monthly bills are going to rise between 400-450 per month. Considering most were already heavily in debt and living week to week, I think we have a serious problem.
