Don’t let this week’s official U.S. government “report” fool you, for inflation…
(by Half Dollar) The last time I purchased Coca-Cola, I paid less than thirteen bucks.
In fact, I paid $12.69:
Indeed, I generally find that the King of Scamflation has better prices on Coke than Walmart.
Although yesterday I felt so much sticker shock that I just had to take a picture:
I was mentally preparing to pay more, and I was financially preparing to pay more, but I must admit, I wasn’t really preparing to get sucker-punched in the gut.
A nearly 32% price hike?
Pro Tip: Any Coke drinkers reading this with lagging Coke prices in their area may want to do something about that right now, and by “do something”, I mean, “stock up”, because Coke drinkers aren’t really fans of participating in the so-called “substitution effect”, and by “right now”, I mean, like, “yesterday”, because time is of the essence.
You see, people generally try to maintain if not improve their standard of living, not reduce it, although pretty soon, for most people, it won’t really even be a choice, for this is US dollar hyperinflation after all.
Meanwhile, curiously, silver remains under $20:
All things considered, I suppose we could call the silver price “flat”.
I mention this, especially the price of Coca-Cola, because the government’s official inflation report is being released this week, and for those people who don’t know, or don’t understand, well, the official report is pretty darn evil.
I also mention this to say that if you’re not producing income in your backyard, pun and no pun intended, then you’re doing it wrong:
Among other things, including better nutrition and taste, growing your own food is also one way of Starving the Beast.
There are many ways to Starve the Beast:
There is only one way to end the manipulation of silver.
Regardless, if it is not clear already:
July’s 0% inflation and last week’s booming jobs report underscore the kind of economy we’re building – an economy that works for everyone.— President Biden (@POTUS) August 10, 2022
The definition of “everyone” does not include Joe Deplorable.
And despite what this week’s inflation report claims, or what any given politician claims, prepare for more frequent and harder-hitting sucker punches.
Who’d like to buy the world a Coke?
