    • They are destroying the economy as part of their evil plan to bring order out of chaos. Power has been so consolidated that the people have become apathetic and just capitulate. The simultaneous Psy Ops along with the WWW and social media keep us all distracted and in conflict with each other.

      It is time to put on your holy armor if you haven’t already. If you don’t think you need Gods help with our world today then woe to you.

        The saying goes “God helps those who help themselves.” Preparedness is great but your soul must also be strong to navigate complicated points of view and the resulting confusion.

        Do you now get .10 back per can instead of .5 in Ohio?
        My old boss would buy cases of beer to do the trip South on the bote, save the cans and take them home to Mi to return them and get the $$$.

          All we get in Ohio is whatever the recycling place will give us. So our condo association picks up cans from all of us each month and we use the money for swimming pool supplies.

        • I think its going to be a rough Christmas.
          Was at Target earlier. $325. For wrapping paper, cat food, some batteries and not a full cart.
          Shelves were not full and the place was not that busy.

            • Stopped into Publix today to grab some a few items and happened upon the meat dept where they had standing rib roast for 6.99 lb —:got one, and beef tenderloin for 15.99lb — grabbed two of those. Haven’t seen either priced close to that for a while so I’m all set on the red meat for Christmas.

              Ole, you and KMac gotta give me the rib roast recipe again. I haven’t cooked one of those since y’all graciously sent me one for Christmas two years ago.

                Pretty sure Publix puts prime rib on sale every year at this time. It's our traditional Christmas Eve meal.

                I always get a couple extra for the freezer. Smoked one in the Kamado last year, turned out pretty tasty.

              Now that they are talking about it. I guess we have it.

                I heard it was anyone can just keep borrowing at stupid low rates. That pumps more and more money into the system. Causing higher demand and higher prices. It wasn’t designed for long term or trillions and trillions pumped in by .gov

                Rememebr 12-16% car and home loans? We could be on our way

            • This is how you increase taxes without actually increasing taxes.

              Democrat style.
              Take all the wealthiest American families total net worth and it wouldn't make an appreciable difference in how the Federal government spends- manages money-taxes!

              This free idea has got to go, the EITC is the worst thing ever!

                Increasing the base interest rate raises the cost of borrowing for commercial banks. By default, they pass that on to us, the direct borrower. People stop spending money on things they don't need. With more cash held in bank accounts and less being spent, money supply tightens and demand for goods drops. Lower demand for goods should make them cheaper, lowering inflation. Now, is this going to work in our case? The inflation we are seeing has more to do with flooding the system with "printed" money at the same time we have a supply problem. The government and Federal Reserve are just flooding the market with money that has no value attached to it. Add to that the limited supply, it's a mess.

                There is also transitory inflation, which is some of what we are seeing in certain arenas. Travel, lodging, etc.. People are getting out after being at home from Covid. So, high demand, limited supply..

                So wait------.
                We raise interest rates, people slow down on buying, causing the suppliers to lower prices, of which they are still paying high for because of supply and production issues, which means if people buy less, then the folks selling don't need as meany people to sell, which causes layoffs---------.
                Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, so these are where all those "new" jobs are coming from------that this "free money/infrastructure" bill will give us.
                At the end of the day, the working class folks are gonna take it in the stones.

                  I can remember trying to sell boats during the Jimmy Carter inflation.
                  lnterest rates @ %21, sure deflated the boat business.
