Groceries remain a "pain point."

Although inflation has fallen for seven straight months, prices for one item that is a major part of every American's budget continues to rise: the food we eat at home. Grocery inflation picked up in January, even as overall U.S. prices fell slightly from the previous month, according to federal labor data. Prices for food at home — what people buy at retailers to prepare their own meals — jumped 11.3% in January from a year earlier, the Labor Department said on Tuesday. Many households continue to feel the pinch, even as the overall inflation rate is slowly receding, thanks to lower

I just filled my gas tank today, and noticed that the gas had increased twenty cents per gallon since I filled up two weeks ago.

Prices are NOT falling. Maybe ( and just maybe) they aren't going up as fast,but they're still going up.

The best thing this feckless administration could do to curb inflation would be to allow the oil companies to drill. High energy prices affect everything. It wasn’t a coincidence that inflation started going up right after our veggie-in-chief cut off drilling.

If people can't afford gas, or they want to stretch what supply they have, they can take public transportation if it is available. But the choke point to me is always going to be food. That is the devious and nasty way they will try controlling the public eventually. Plenty for them always though. Explains why Bill Gates has become such a big landowner as well. Buying up viable farmland then leaving it fallow keeps the supply of food stuffs in short supply. This is all deliberate, and evilly so.

Supply and demand issue. Consumers stop buying hard goods and they are more focused on feeding themselves. Food costs are up and non-essential goods are down.

I'm surprised the Commie Broadcast System didn't blame DJT, they blamed for everything but the current crap-for-brains-in-chief. They even blame climate change and they wonder why nobody listens to them anymore. Hey, CBS if I want to be lied to I'll call my first wife.

#5 hit the nail on the head inflation is down because the things they use to measure inflation don't include any of the things you HAVE to buy. So, since the prices for things which people HAVE to buy, energy, food, housing, are up, people are buying a LOT less of the things which they use the price of to track inflation.

Gasoline came down just a little. What else came down. Not my car insurance or my home insurance, or my fuel bill or electric bill, definitely not my food bill.

In our area gas was $3.14 this morning. This afternoon it was $3.45. Nothing is going down. I like El Cheapo potato chips for a snack. They were $1.10 for a Pringles style can. Now they are $1.60. Even chicken, formerly pretty reasonable, is through the roof. I love fast food chicken but will not pay those prices. Even a political hack can see that nothing is coming down, if they bother to look.

It's not the price of the food that concerns us as much as the quality, near future availabity and the ongoing efforts by bad actors in this country attempting to destroy chicken farms, making good farm land unavailable for use by farmers and the chicken feed campaign to restrict the production of eggs. Something evil this way comes.

Also, Biden continues to cite inflation around the world to justify the inflation here. As #3 states, Biden's war on fossil fuels is what caused the whole worldwide mess. Closing down pipelines, restricting drilling and causing refinery "accidents" is the root cause behind all of it.

For "seasoned citizens" regardless of an 8% cola, they are feeling pressure just to survive paying for food. rent. taxes and the like. The Vegetable who is 80 years old ought to have to live under those constraints. He live in a world of confusion and delusion with his handlers telling him what to do and say. Even when others in government make their reports, NOTHING is ever bad-- just more lies to cover up the latest scandal or failure-- never held to account! Always a distraction from the distraction that was the distraction from the real distraction of the current distraction to avoid the last distraction prior to the distraction before the coming distraction that will distract from all the other distractions.......

From $095 gallon to $4.16 a gallon for propane, gas was at $1.85 now at $3.68. There is no battery powered tractor, you can not feed livestock without fuel, you can't deliver anything with out fuel yet the anti-carbon freaks that can not show any sea level raise or temperature raise other than with 'computer' simulation (garbage in and out) are making a fortune (Al Gore and buddies).

Prices, like taxes and utility rates, will not come down significantly, if at all. During the zeroe's admin local businesses in my area began adding "gasoline delivery fees" to their sales. When gasoline prices declined those costs did not disappear - only the billing statement did.

Sen. John Fetterman will likely need to be hospitalized for at least “a few weeks” as he receives inpatient treatment for clinical depression in Washington, DC, a senior aide said Friday. It’s been hard for staffers to tell whether the 53-year-old Pennsylvania Democrat has been unresponsive in recent weeks due to hearing loss from the stroke he suffered in May — or because he’s in the throes of despair, the aide told NBC. “[He’s] not hearing you or is he sort of crippled by his depression and social anxiety,” said the aide— adding that staffers were surprised by the severity

Los Angeles, California city officials announced a new public safety initiative which implements yoga, meditation and healing circles to homeless communities as an alternative form of unarmed policing. The initiative's launch cost the city of Los Angeles $2.2 million in city funding.

Democratic Rep.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES -- Tensions flared Monday morning as crews dismantled several homeless encampments on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles while police officers stood guard. Video from AIR7 HD showed a dump truck's crane grabbing one encampment's canopy tent, which had apparently been constructed with a raised floor and walls. All of the debris was then hoisted into the truck and hauled away. That sparked an angry reaction from some bystanders, who stood behind yellow police tape at the intersection of Fifth and San Pedro streets. "So I built my house right here on wheels," said homeless activist Stephanie Arnold

As President Biden prepares to launch another White House bid, the nascent movement to find a replacement to run in his place has flamed out, with Democrats in both wings of the party pleased with the expected direction of his campaign and no alternative in sight. Progressives have wondered how Biden will position himself in 2024, having seen him both tack to the middle and veer to the left at different points in office. But they got a major sign of reassurance after this week’s address: more liberal firepower is in the works. “I have to say, the speech was

Dozens of students walked out of their New Hampshire school after the district banned urinals in a compromise to a proposal that would have blocked children from using facilities based on their gender identity. The school board decided a few days before the Friday walkout to prohibit students at Milford Middle School and Milford High School from using urinals or shared spaces in locker rooms. The ban in a town of about 15,000 people roughly 35 miles (56 kilometers) from Concord, New Hampshire's capital, was the culmination of a long debate about district rules about bathroom use and gender identity.

Two years ago today, Feb. 17, Rush Limbaugh passed away. It is undeniable that he left a gaping hole that no one else can fill; he invented a new kind of conservative media, and he certainly did it best. Rush Limbaugh had a genius for talk radio, and part of that genius was that many people who never even met him felt that when he died, they lost a friend. But I think the best way to remember Limbaugh is by letting him speak for himself, so I want to share a few of the most memorable quotes from the “Mayor of Realville,”

On February 9, New Jersey Italian restaurant Nettie’s House of Spaghetti, despite having a name that makes it sound like a children’s restaurant, issued a statement across its social media accounts that beginning in early March, they would no longer allow children under 10 to dine at the restaurant. The announcement made headlines and points to the perennial debate over whether banning kids under a certain age from eating at restaurants is reasonable. This debate is, of course, not new. There will always be a steady stream of new children coming to restaurants with their parents, and some of those children will act in accordance with their developmental tendencies.

The environmental disaster taking place in Ohio from a Norfolk Southern derailed train should outrage both sides of the political aisle. After the smoke clears, investigations will take place and most likely will show that there is plenty of blame to be shared, including all levels of government and both political parties. But at the moment, the complete lack of any significant response by the Biden administration is appalling and begs the question why an administration that is hostile to the free market and supports extreme measures to fight climate change is missing in action?

President Joe Biden signed an executive order Thursday aimed at rooting out systemic racism from the federal government and doing more to achieve racial equity. The order, made in the middle of Black History month, extends an order Biden made on his first day in office requiring federal agencies to investigate inequities within their departments and to proactively address shortcomings. That is now an annual requirement. The aim is to deliver “equitable outcomes” for all Americans, including underserved communities, through government policies, programs, and services.

Congressional Democrats rolled out a spending proposal aimed at closing the racial wealth gap on Wednesday, which would give at least $1,000 to every American born after 2005. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) introduced the American Opportunity Accounts Act, which would federalize the use of 'baby bonds' for the country's youth to help fight wealth inequality. The program would be funded by raising estate and inheritance taxes. It would result in a major redistribution of wealth to middle and lower-income Americans. The lawmakers estimate that children in families on the lowest income levels would have roughly $46,000 by the time they begin college,

President Joe Biden is a 'healthy' and 'vigorous' 80-year-old who is fit for office, his doctor said after his annual physical on Thursday at Walter Reed. White House physician Colonel Kevin O'Connor provided an update on his health amid concerns over his age as he prepares to announce a 2024 run for president. The results were largely unchanged from last time, aside from a lesion on his chest that has been sent for cancer screening.  O'Connor said Biden's gait 'remains stiff', but insisted it has not worsened since the last examination.

It isn’t a civil rights cause, it isn’t a new form of free expression, it isn’t a natural societal evolution. It’s insanity. And facilitating it, as in the case of the supposed “medical professionals” increasingly pushing it on children, is evil. We’re seeing this in more and more vivid detail as the transgender craze — and it is a craze, make no mistake about that — broadens and touches more and more lives. It’s becoming harder and harder to sustain the myth that chemical castrations and hormone baths and disfiguring surgeries lead to normal lives.
