Democrats Sell Inflation As No Big Deal
Reading the news lately from the (other networks – MSNBC and CNN) has revealed some thinking from the other side (the liberal point of view).
It appears that the Democrats believe that inflation that is approaching 10 percent is not a big deal. The inflation rate the highest in 30 years is no big deal. This Thanksgiving Holiday will be the most expensive ever in the history of our country.
Inflation is not a good thing. The liberal spin that we should have been paying these prices all along, that this is just normal and we have just enjoyed a time where people didn’t go out and were able to bank money into their savings accounts.
Rural America is taking the brunt of the inflation costs. This has to do with transportation to get the supplies to stores and gas stations. We are paying a much higher cost across the board in all categories than our brothers and sisters that live in the city.
Fuel is over $5.15 per gallon now. Most rural residents moved into the areas away from the city because they could not afford to buy a home. In the bay area shacks sell for over a million dollars. In Sacramento, California homes are over $650K. The income level just cannot keep up. We are paying the price however for our choice to live in rural America. Food costs are through the roof. Ground beef at our local Safeway is $12.99 a pound. The meat selection is scarce and there are lots of vacant shelves. They say this is supply chain issues caused by Covid-19 but the problem is much deeper than that. The government handouts stopped people from working. This is the big problem.
Workers in California don’t want blue collar jobs anymore. They want white collar jobs. They don’t want to get their hands dirty and with the tech industry being here (Apple, Google, HP, Intel, AMD) many don’t have to but there is a cost. There isn’t people doing truck driving work anymore.
The Democrats blame the shortage of truck drivers on racism and say that truck drivers are 55 and older white males and that other races and females are discriminated against. This is a lie. First of all people don’t want to get their hands dirty and trucking is long hours. More importantly in California all of the older big rigs have been forced off the road due to emission standards. The cost of buying new rigs is through the roof.
Fuel costs are a driving factor here. Rural commuters are spending a large amount of their disposable income on gasoline, almost 50 percent more than in January. The cronies in Washington DC are shutting down pipelines and fuel production because they have the power to do so. In their New Green Deal package the goal is to get the cost of fuel so expensive that electricity will be the only way to go. As they push Americans into unaffordable electric cars there will be a power shortage which will drive the costs of electricity through the roof, along with rotating power outages and other issues. This is a major factor driving up inflation costs and the Democrats are totally responsible for this.
Meat shortages are coming. Corn has gone from $4 a bushel to almost $8 a bushel. With the drought in California meat producers are having to feed more grain to their cattle because there is no grass to eat. When corn prices go up so does meat prices. In addition these costs are being absorbed by the cattle farmers so with a lean supply of cash they are producing less meat. Also much of our Pork is being exported to China. The meat industry (processing plants) employed about 70K people in the U.S. These plants were hit hard by Covid-19 causing deaths of around 250 people. It is a dirty blue collar job that nobody wants so these plants have a much lower production rate and their costs have increased to the point where farmers are forming coalitions to open their own meat packing plants.
As for produce with the drought in California it is also very expensive. As the water dries up so do the farms and up goes the prices. The produce supply will have to shift to areas where there is water and there will be shorter growing seasons.
Electricity and heating fuel costs are on the rise. With the lawsuits against PG&E in California the electric rates continue to climb. Electricity in California is the most expensive in the United States. The heating fuel costs will be a driving force this winter in inflation costs. Natural Gas and Propane is expected to double thanks the the short supply created by the Biden Administration.
Keep tuned because the Biden Administration as well as Gavin Newsom and his cronies are doing their best to create tough times for you. The only folks that will enjoy a softer time will those that don’t work and receive free handouts. They love the socialism and government dependency that is being created.
As the year comes to an end you will be getting another surprise from this administration in the form of increased taxes that will affect 80% of us – not the lie that you were sold that it would affect people over the $400K mark.
Don’t accept the lie that the stock market is doing well and Americans have lots of money in savings and they can afford all of this.
Please pay attention to what is going on and make the needed changes in America come the 2022 mid-term elections. These destructive policies must end.
