Shoppers across the nation have been scrambling for months to keep up with soaring egg prices. Prices continue to skyrocket – up 60% in December from a year earlier. Last year, the average price for a dozen large Grade A eggs in the U.S. was $1.93 in January. By December, when egg demand peaked, the price surged to $4.25. The high prices prompted a "He went to Kroger" meme, with an egg in place of an engagement ring in the "He went to Jared" jewelry advertisement. Here's when we can expect egg prices to drop and what we can do in


Prices over $5/dozen are common.

Good luck #2. I understand chicken feed has doubled in price. And the price of chicks too. They have every base covered.

I worked on a chicken farm in Florida for several years in HS, and learned a lot from the retired mechanical engineer who ran the place. I learned to weld, deal with cattle, and deal with chickens, and how to repair chicken waterers, and the large chain feeders that ran through each chicken house. And, I learned that there were chicken diseases that could devastate the flock. The one that was common then was coccidiosis, which was a bacteria and could be treated by putting antibiotics in the feed. If it was starting in the flock, my boss would order up the next load of feed to have antibiotics in it. But.....for a virus, we have very little to interfere with the virus. There are a few anti-virals, and I wonder if putting these into the food or water would slow the spread of these viruses. And....are the ChiComs doing another bioterrorism attack on us with this one? It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. The ChiComs have been at war with us for decades, and we still support factories there by buying massive amounts of goods from that Communist hellhole.

Per #4, I never worked on a chicken farm, but did work at a feed mill delivering feed to multiple chicken farmers. We frequently added antibiotics to the feed. The farmers had to be watchful with frequent testing, or they could lose their whole flock.

"The virus has led to the deaths of more than 57 million birds . . ." Wrong, birds were culled, or killed by humans without the proof that any of the chickens were infected. So they take samples and if something comes back positive the farmers are pressured to kill off their flock. The government pays the farmers to cull their animals. Sick or not. Control the food supply, control the people. Stalin 101. And we are not only talking about egg layers. We are also talking about meat poultry.

The local Vons store in SoCal has eggs at $10 a dozen. Small white potatoes will be Easter egg substitutes for hiding and coloring. The wheels have come off in our country since Biden so expect, via inflation, Easter potatoes soon to be $10 a pound.

Millions of chickens did not die from avian flu. Millions of chickens were KILLED because of avian flu. If even one hen gets it, farmers have to destroy the entire flock. It’s not like the chickens were all suddenly falling dead.

Democratic leaders in major cities nationwide have already moved forward with bans on natural gas stoves even as the Biden administration has pumped the brakes on similar regulations at the federal level. Cities including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and New York City — which are collectively home to more than 10 million Americans — have enacted varying restrictions on natural gas hookups impacting gas-powered furnaces, ovens and stoves. Leaders of the Democrat-led cities have argued that transitioning away from natural gas would help achieve climate and net-zero ambitions. "New York City is proof that it’s possible to

Minneapolis - Crews of state and county workers spent hours clearing a large tent encampment in Minneapolis on Wednesday morning, forcing out those who’d been staying there for months. The sprawling camp in Cedar-Riverside near 15th Ave. S and Sixth St. S had more than 80 tents at the time of eviction. Notably, it was recently equipped with portable toilets after City Council Member Jamal Osman and his staff pleaded for almost two months for state and city government to provide them.

Behind the five-decade low US unemployment rate of 3.5% lies a 2.6 million-person mystery. That’s roughly how many more Americans should be working or looking for jobs if the economy’s labor force participation rate was the same as before the Covid-19 pandemic. But something’s still off, leaving everyone from mom-and-pop businesses to Federal Reserve economists scrambling to answer a crucial question: Where are these workers? Economist Raj Chetty and his big-data experts at Harvard University’s Opportunity Insights lab went looking for these missing people. Their research relies on an innovative method of tracking the economy, built in the early months

Holiday sales came in below industry expectations, as shoppers felt pinched by inflation and rising interest rates, according to data from the National Retail Federation. Sales during November and December grew 5.3% year over year to $936.3 billion, below the major trade group’s prediction for growth of between 6% and 8% over the year prior. In early November, NRF had projected spending of between $942.6 billion and $960.4 billion. (Snip) The holiday sales gains include the impact of inflation, which drives up total sales.

San Francisco’s reparations committee has proposed paying each Black longtime resident $5 million and granting total debt forgiveness due to the decades of "systematic repression" faced by the local Black community. The San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee, which advises the city on developing a plan for reparations for Black residents, released its draft report last month to address reparations – not for slavery, since California was not technically a slave state, but "to address the public policies explicitly created to subjugate Black people in San Francisco by upholding and expanding the intent and legacy of chattel slavery."

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — For the second time in a month, a Colorado library has closed its doors to clean up methamphetamine contamination. Officials in the Denver suburb of Englewood shut down the city library last week within a couple of hours of getting test results Wednesday showing that the contamination in the facility’s restrooms exceeded state thresholds, city spokesman Chris Harguth said. Other spaces such as countertops also tested positive for lower levels of the drug and will require specialized cleaning, he said. The larger-scale remediation work will include removing tainted surfaces, walls, ductwork and exhaust fan equipment. The city

On at least two separate occasions, Frank Biden publicly cited Joe Biden as a means by which he has influence, despite holding no government position or relation to the White House other than by having the same last name as the president and being his sibling. In October, Frank Biden spoke in Venice, Italy, as the keynote speaker at a BioSig Technologies conference about “the future of global health care.” BioSig Technologies is a health technology company.

Reuters reports the FAA said the human error occurred while personnel were working “to correct synchronisation between the live primary database and a backup database”, and it had “so far found no evidence of a cyber attack or malicious intent.” The system outage occurred on January 10, but the ground stop was not issued until the following morning by which time countless flights were already being grounded

Democrats in the House of Representatives have introduced a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s controversial Citizens United v. FEC decision made in 2010. The court ruled 5–4 that the free speech clause of the First Amendment prohibits the government from restricting independent expenditures for political campaigns by corporations and overruled an earlier decision that banned corporations from making “electioneering communications.” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif). said in a press release he and Democrat colleagues introduced the “Democracy For All Amendment” to “overturn legal precedents that have allowed unrestrained campaign spending and dark money to corrupt American democracy.” He has introduced the constitutional amendment every year since 2013,

Yet he claimed climate programs still need more “money, money, money, money, money, money, money.” The only reason he’s not the worst person in the world is because he has so much competition at Davos.

And one reason that’s true is that while Biden’s people did quickly call the National Archives to, in effect, turn themselves in once the documents were found, they sat on the findings as far as the public was concerned.
