Feds Warn of Food Price Inflation

The Department of Agriculture has warned of sticker shock facing home chefs on the eve of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the unofficial start of the U.S. summer grilling season.

The agency said conditions in California could have “large and lasting effects on U.S. fruit, vegetable, dairy and egg prices,” as the most populous U.S. state struggles through what officials are calling a catastrophic drought.

The consumer price index (CPI) for U.S. beef and veal is up almost 10 percent so far in 2014.

    How history repeats itself, for those that remember the movie Network.

    For those that thought President Carter’s term the economy was bad, things still bad now or worse?

    Plus Food Stamps are at their highest use ever recorded in USA, I guess some of our local Politicians must be independently wealthy or have large trust funds to support a $3.2 Million Override?

    It’s Bad Out There!
