The government can no longer hide the fact that inflation is roaring. And remember, Bernanke hates you.


The government admitted that inflation hit 4.1% in 2007. However the real number is likely over 10%.

Just using the government's own pre-1992 measurement criteria, and
inflation is 8%. Yet nobody bothers to report that, since that would be against the government talking points of course.

Bottom line - the Fed hates you. If you earn, save or spend US dollars, you're in a heap of trouble. And Bernanke, Congress and Bush are all just gonna make it worse. They hate you too.


Inflation Rate Is Worst in 17 Years - Higher Costs for Energy and Food Push Inflation Rate Up by Largest Amount in 17 Years

Consumer prices rose by 4.1 percent for all of 2007, up sharply from a 2.5 percent increase in 2006, the Labor Department said Wednesday. Consumers felt the pain when they filled up their gas tanks or shopped for groceries. Prices for both energy and food shot up by the largest amount since 1990.

High food prices + 30 million illegals + declines in city govt. revenues due to the housing crash = crime and riots.

You read it here first. As soon as things get too expensive to survive it will get ugly fast.

From the story: "Prices were also up sharply for health care, housing and education. However, these gains were offset somewhat by falling prices for clothing, new cars and computers."

Hehehe, I guess you are sick, homeless and uneducated but you have new clothes, a car and a computer. Nice.

The biggest inflation felt is when you need the services of crook dentists, doctors, lawyers, auto mechanics, contractors, etc. All these thieves are out there to get you.

Enough with the illegal alien nonsence. It's just the faux "outrage" to keep the collective masses from noticing the truth. It's the gay marriage for this election cycle.

Illegals contribute something, outsourcing sucks the dwindling life from our economy, but it's never mentioned.

And if the Russian CPI (11.9%) and official USD/RUR exchange rates (24.65 down from 27.20) are credible, then Russia saw a depreciation of USD by 23.5% in 2007 alone. No more overvaluation. You shop for your groceries with Jacksons. We would have to do it with Grants.

This is a timely thread, Keith.

Good article about inflation in today's Seattle Times:

Doesnt the media usually lie by sophistry-- "outside of energy, food, housing, and medical care, inflation has remained low".---

Unfortunately, CORE CPI excludes food and energy because the Fed is crazy.
