    Our grocery bills just keep going up and up and up every year, but the government says that inflation is almost nothing. Funny how that works.

    O. 1%? Bought any meat lately/ Beef hit an all time high. Gallon of gas was $1 back in 92, health care costs rose by bout 11% annually from 93-07, "only"5% yr since. Guess Fed economists don't eat, use energy or get sick.

    its really odd... here in Bay Area, I watched housing go up 100% from '10, rents go 50%, gas 50%, cable 30%, food 20%+ ... but govt says its 8% over that time
    maybe they are tryin to destroy middle class?
