    Well once again they proved it! The loons only read or posted what they want to from my pst and themn said that I proved their point. They do it all the time, remove from context to try to make a point. Here is the entire post and they of course only refered to the headlind which was explained in the text and ten backed up with my post of the transcript.

    Obama has NOT increased MPG!!!!

    the low information voter

    Or loons that listen to this kinda humor

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: Is ‘Great’ Obama About to Equal Presidents on Mount Rushmore?

    Although every holiday may seem like Obama Day to Chris Matthews, the MSNBC host used the date often devoted to Lincoln and Washington as an excuse to wonder if the current President is headed to Mount Rushmore? On President’s Day, Matthews thrilled, “Is Barack Obama going for it? Is he set on becoming one of the great presidents in history?”

    The cable anchor, who famously declared that Obama caused a “thrill going up my leg,” first declared, “I’m not talking about Mt. Rushmore but perhaps the level right below it.” He later went back on this and fantasized about the President watching him: “If [Obama] were hearing us talking about him maybe mounting Mount Rushmore, getting up there with the great presidents…what would he be thinking? ‘That’s exactly what I’m doing?’”

    @Ratboy–its amazing Mathews hair maintains whatever light color of his hair considering where he places his head in relation to Obama.

    @Ratboy

    I been reading some trading site reports, there is a growing major concern that with all the numbers coming in that the QE’s from the Fed have had very little or no effect.

    This quote is from a non-trading site (strict copyright on the trading sites) but pretty much say what I been reading

    FT Com
    *Neither interest paid to banks nor possible losses on exit made any difference to the substance of monetary policy.

    All banks hold reserves at the Fed. The central bank has boosted its balance sheet to more than $3tn as it buys assets to drive down long-term interest rates through its program of quantitative easing.

    It pays for the assets by creating bank reserves, which now amount to more than $1.6tn. The Fed could add another $1tn if it keeps buying assets for another year.

    At the moment it only pays 0.25 per cent interest on those reserves. But according to its exit strategy, published in June 2011, the Fed plans to raise interest rates before it sells assets. Interest of 2 per cent on $2.5tn of reserves would run to $50bn a year.

    ***When inflation hits Rats, I’m afraid there may not be time to adjust this time and it could be quick and very sudden catching everyone off guard, only good thing that “may” happen is Gas prices should crash. But everything else will skyrocket and last many years as per Under Jimmy Carters Term.

    Not only that, but also at the supermarket. Same price, same packaging of what used to be 1 pound sliced deli meat went to containing 12oz, now contains 9oz.
    One of our chain supermarkets has resorted to what I consider deceitful, changing their policies on quantity buys overnight. It used to be that 10/$10 meant $1 per item regardless of quantity. Then suddenly it became buy-all-10 to get the deal; however the policy is not the same for all sale items, some are still good for any quantity – we just have to spend time reading the darn small print on the sale tags. I bet most quantity-deal shoppers got one big shock at the checkout. It’s a common sight at the supermarket now, shoppers bending over to read sale tags for condition of sale.

    Read that also but the sickening thing is what they are upset about–that they couldn’t take pictures of him golfing with Tiger–not facts withheld over Benghazi, Fast and Furious, gun control and on and on–

  • Letmethink

    @apple—I bought groceries yesterday and was wondering what the increase in groceries is compared to the increase in gas prices. It is incredible how much groceries have gone up–to my mind–even more than gas.
    I filled the car and bought groceries on the same day–not a good day for the pocketbook!!

    Yes, I have noticed that on just about everything we shop for, also, Coke a Cola has stopped selling the 20oz bottles around here now, they sell the 16oz bottles for the same amount as the 20oz was. Pepsi is at this point still selling the 20oz ones.

    Inflation has started, at this point though its being disguised well.

  • Letmethink

    Food and gas are not figured into the inflation index. People must notice the increase but since the administration and the media says “no inflation” they aren’t putting 2 and 2 together.

    sunny and 3 above they issued a winter storm watch from thursday 6 pm to friday 6 pm. it’s only a matter of time ratboy before your included to.

    @Coffee Steve

    @ anyone else notice how the prices have slowly went up but the portions are going down?

    You just describe dining in Paris, I know why they are all
    So thin, can’t afford to eat and/or portions are tiny.

    @Cracker Barrel for the 3 of us was 37 bucks and I got a Chicken Fried Chicken with gravy that I get most time we go there, the portions the last 2 times are shrinking. So is my wallet LOL

    3 meals for 37 bucks sounds pretty darn good! Cracker Barrel is a big chain and the bigger chains are always looking for the best margin controls. Every nickel dime pound ounce second minute, they strive to make a profit better than yesterday, last week, last month, last year.

    Dinner for two at a great old school place in Palm Springs called Lyons English Grill was $110 for two, off the dinner specials menu. However we both had cocktails and the portions were good. Palm Springs is a vacation town so
    prices tend to be jacked, even though a great % of the population is retired.

    I’m not kidding. Why should I be? The 10/$10 was one example from just yesterday. Frozen entrees by Banquet: 10/$10 (small print: you must buy 10; I don’t remember the unit price if not bought in 10s). More common are 2/$xx, $4/$yy (small print: must buy 2, must buy 4). Some other items may be 2/$zz and have no quantity requirement.

    @Jeff, You don’t care to know the truth of which side attacks more but you will say it’s the right every chance you get.

    Obama is being himself right now. He comes up with no plan just pie in the sky ideas, ways to give money to his rich friends and then blames congress for not having a budget and not letting him spend all the money he wants.

    @Coffee Steve, I’ve always told my husband I wanted to live in the Ohio Valley. I want to be somewhere that is not to hot and not so cold. Hubby is always talking Texas or Florida. He was in Cincinnati last week for a business meeting. He was in disbelief how much warmer it was their.

    I’ve noticed the higher prices and smaller portions at many restaurants. I’ve also noticed fewer workers and the main dishes being served quicker when items like, soup, salad and bread sticks are all you can eat.
    We never get drinks at $2.95 to $3.95 just for tea or soda it’s outrageous. But our bills are always $12.00 a person before tip.
    I’m really thinking of just taking the food and cooking it at my sons’ condo next time we visit.

  • AppleStinx

    @RedBarSoup

    At the same supermarket, it used to be: on a 10/$10 sale, you could buy 4 and it would cost $4. Perhaps more common than n/$xx is now having one price on the tag, say, “$0.89″ and the small print will say “must buy 4, regular price $1.50″. Anyway, I don’t recall seeing those “must buy qty” at that supermarket before.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Jeff
    3 meals for 37 bucks sounds pretty darn good! Cracker Barrel

    Louisville for many years has had one of the lowest cost of living areas, and that 37 bucks? Just a few months ago we hardly ever paid over 30 bucks for the three of us.

    @Cathy

    Give the Ohio Valley 24 hours and we can have Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter in that time span :-)

    I as well have noticed fewer workers and the crowds are getting smaller each time we eat out. As gas goes higher, this will only increase.

    Why would he be kidding? It is the oldest marketing tool in the world because people thought they HAD TO buy all 10 but they didnt. In fact I still can buy 2 of 5 or whatever at one of the local chains here.

    Duh!!!!
