There Is No Inflation … Unless You Eat Food, Use Water, Live In A House, Get Sick, Travel, Go To School, Or Do Taxes

And it will get worse, before it gets much worse.

NO INFLATION UNLESS YOU EAT FOOD, USE WATER, LIVE IN A HOUSE OR APARTMENT, HEAT YOUR HOME, GET SICK, TRAVEL, PAY CAR INSURANCE, GO TO SCHOOL, MAIL LETTERS, OR DO YOUR TAXES (The Burning Platform, Jan 16, 2017):

Government data reports are so funny. The blaring headlines today tells us that prices dropped in December. We are all saving billions from the drop in oil and gas. Hallelujah!!!

The corporate MSM never digs into the numbers to get the real truth. These reports and their distribution to the sheep are designed to keep you sedated and calm. Facts are not necessary. How this data pertains to your everyday life is not important to the .1% who control the flow of information.

Here is a link to the detailed inflation numbers by category. We already know they massage these numbers to achieve a happy ending, but even the massaged numbers tell an entirely different story than the one peddled to the masses by the government and corporate media.

Below are the annual price increases for items that might impact your life on a daily basis:

Food at home – 3.7%

Food away from home – 3.0%

Meat – 12.7%

Fish and seafood – 5.6%

Eggs – 10.7%

Milk – 5.2%

Fruits & vegetables – 4.1%

Coffee – 4.2%

Butter – 22.5%

Natural gas – 5.8%

Footwear – 2.8%

Prescription drugs – 6.4%

Newspapers & magazines – 4.8%

College textbooks – 5.0%

Cigarettes – 3.1%

Apartment rent – 3.4%

Owners equivalent rent – 2.6%

Hotels – 7.3%

Water & sewer – 5.6%

Medical care -2.4%

Hospital care – 4.9%

College tuition – 3.4%

Postage – 4.1%

Tax preparation – 6.1%

I don’t know about you, but the costs listed above account for a significant amount of my budget. Do those price increases jive with the message being spewed by the government controlled media?

The credibility of their numbers is highly questionable in that they say health insurance accounts for .75% of a person’s annual budget. They actually have the balls to say health insurance fell by 0.5% over the last year. I’d love to hear from anyone out there whose health insurance premiums fell in the last year. Mine went up by 20%.

Your government keepers will continue to drown you in propaganda and misinformation. But the average person should know they are being lied to. They see how much money they have left over at the end of every month. If any.

  1. Great post. As one who likes numbers to illustrate points, I really appreciate yours. You are spot on with all of it. I was shocked the other day when I went to the store, and found butter at over $6.00 a lb. Butter has enjoyed a steady cost for years, but no longer. Milk, (because I drink so little, I buy organic which lasts a month or better) has been high for a long time. They have masked the coffee prices by making the packages smaller.
    Your numbers are spot on.
    Thanks

  2. To Friend Stanley and the special Author of IU, I can only say I agree with both of you. Denial is a very powerful opiate…..one great mind called religion the opiate of the masses…..but I see denial used every day as consistently as any religion ever hawked. Political Correctness (also used in Nazi Germany to curb the tongue of all who might dare speak their minds openly) has been worked into the daily media blasted into the eyes and ears of all Americans. Regardless of the growing interactive aspects of technology, far too much is passive receiving, and people are blasted with unending mendacious propaganda.

    People don’t hear about the truth of the economy, they are told about the next smart phone coming available for only a few dollars more a week…….they buy these stupid phones like we bought cars…….I don’t get it.
