    However, I think its because its the end of their growing season, and stores are either selling what they have in cold storage or are importing them from South America.

    Up, up, and away here on alot of stuff....nearing the danger zone I would say. Too many people on foodstamps and fixed income...and surveys say near 70% live paycheck to paycheck...add 20% real unemplyment and underemployment, and gas heading for $4. It's not looking good.

    The dollar has lost 15 cents against the Mexican peso in the last 6 months, including 5 cents since Dec 1. Expect fresh fruits and vegetables to go through the roof, since Sinaloa is THE major source in the western hemisphere, being the fruit basket of the Americas. Mile after mile after mile after mile of farms, volcanic soil, watered by coastal mountains and sea mist. If you are into drugs, this is where they grow most of the narcotics and marijuana imported, and are now into growing coca leaves. Whole areas of the Sierra Madres are now no-go for anything but a military convoy or the occasional lost tourist (who are invariably gently pointed in the right direction by smiling, polite, well dressed young men, since nobody wants to hurt the golden geese. I hear many tales of how courteous the Mexicans are.)

    This is what happens when our lovely govt waters down the value of our currency by printing 600 billion new dollars with nothing to back it. But I'm preaching to the choir.

    Quality meats, produce, and dairy have all gone up. You can still get the cheap stuff cheap but the wife is beginning to notice the separation. Go check out how much organic milk is compared to generic, etc...

    how about them razor blades

    Default Inflation Bites!

    I find it comical (in a real sick and sadistic way) that they strip out Food and Energy from the 'Core CPI'.
    Food and Energy are the only things that should be measured by the CPI.
    Who gives a flying F*ck if the price of IPads and big screen TVs went down?

    I told my wife that one and disbelief enveloped her.

    If you were in congress now and wanted to make a positive name for yourself wouldn't you champion that correction?
    You wouldn't have to be Ron Paul.
    Just intelligent.
