    A bit ago, the Bernanke redefined inflation to be increase in wages, instead of prices. So, as long as you stay at the same income, there ain’t no inflation.

    If you can’t get rid of the problem, redefine the symptoms of the problem in such a way that the symptoms no longer identify the problem. Problem solved!

    The nice thing about Ted’s work is that it isn’t fact-based, so dropping the CCPI from the legislation didn’t impact his ability to rant about how unfair it’s going to be.

    Are you insane or just woefully misinformed?

    My local grocery store hasn’t had some of the produce I buy recently. It came in a day or two later, but Dorothy told me they are having to find other suppliers because drought in the US, and other factors in other nations are making some items harder to find. A news story on the radio said beef ranchers are talking about smaller herds this year in expectation of further complications from drought and increases in feed for cattle and other meat producing animals.
    Communism, as perceived by Karl Marx, is not the answer, however-
    COMMUNE-ism, like the kibbutz groups in Israel, might be. Building water pipelines from flood prone areas and coastal desalination plants along interstate systems to drought prone areas might also be a good idea. It would definitely create construction jobs and preserve our food and clean water supply.
    If you cut down on the number of bullets a gun can fire before being reloaded, and do background checks on 100% of gun buyers would help reduce the mass murders.
    These are some revolutionary ideas. We should be able to access free clean water. We should also have “free” safety of our food and air.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    How carnivore-centric! Completely skipped over the legumes. Better just to eliminate the dead animals from the diet.

    “Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, told The Hill newspaper that cuts to Social Security are now off the table but will be reconsidered later in the year as part of raising the debt ceiling.”

    @mikefive Exactly. And this is leaving out the fact that previous presidents, including Reagan and Clinton, redefined the inflation rate so as to down play price increases in housing and fuel, both of which have been skyrocketing in recent years.

    @TJDestry Now let’s all hold our breaths and wait for Mr. Destry to apologize for his unfair slag of my work.

    Hi Ted. I’m sure that last comment was sarcasm. You know that being a troll means never having to say you’re sorry or admit error.

    That’s how a terrorist massacre becomes “workplace conflict”

    @Ms. Ima After the revolution, you don’t have to worry about inflation because you have a state-controlled economy. The houses are all distributed in accordance with people’s needs and in an effort to make things as a Gallatin as possible. Same thing with fuel, however, it’s also very important to try to economize for the sake of the environment. And of course you don’t need Social Security, because everyone receives the same income regardless of what they do for a living or whether they are retired or not.

    “The question is: how do you give limited free stuff to an ever expanding country without mass murders?”

    Well, for that matter, how do you sell limited, not free stuff to an ever expanding country? Or planet? This isn’t a zero sum game.

    Typical conservative pessimism. The many have to do with less, so the few can have more.
