Milk - and a lot of other things - are getting more expensive.  but a parasite like Obama who sucks the lifeblood from the public teat wouldn't know about that.

Bernanke doesn't seem to know or care, either.  They just play with the way the numbers are calculated to try and keep the media from reporting what the rest of us know all too well.

Around here, milk costs between $2.59 - $2.99 a gallon, to draw in customers. Everything else is almost unaffordable. I made chili soup last night, and tomato juice was 2.09 a can, and hamburger was $3.99 a lb. Everything in the grocery store is higher and the packages are smaller. I've been making a lot of things that can be frozen. I will freeze what soup doesn't get eaten, but since it is chili, the kids can smell it miles away.  :silly:

The price of gasoline has doubled since Obummer first was inaugurated. Meat and produce prices are up substantially. Of course, when Bernanke calculates inflation by leaving out fuel and food, it's easy to say it isn't so bad.

As long as they keep interest rates low and the printing of money constant we are going to have inflation. Also with interest rates so low there are no real good places to put your money to gain a better income from it unless it is the stock market. Yet seniors who have the most money to invest usually don't like to put their money into the market since they want extra income that is less risky than the market since they no longer can go out and earn a living to replace what they could lose. The inflation is going to get worse. We all pay for the mistakes our government is doing what really makes me irritated is that our government knows this isn't good for the economy but keeps doing the same bad policies. We are screwed folks and nothing can be done about it as long as we have rhino republicans running the house and democrats running the senate.
