    Looks like food prices will be going way up.

    Just read this. Hope I got it on correctly.

    As highlighted in NIA's new documentary 'End of Liberty', which just surpassed 170,000 views in three days, prices of nearly all agricultural commodities have been spiraling out of control in recent months just in anticipation of today's quantitative easing announcement. In the past 60 days alone, cotton prices are up 54%, corn prices are up 29%, soybean prices are up 22%, orange juice prices are up 17%, and sugar prices are up 51%. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones has only gained 9%.

    Nope, you didn't.

    This took me to someplace demanding that I sign in before moving on.

    I've noticed that some food prices seem to be rising, though, FWTW.

    No it takes you to yahoo and you need to sign up for yahoo mail, then it takes you to your own yahoo mail not the site that you wanted.
    You need to link it to the web site not the mail that you recieved.

    Well the prices of commodities has gone up recently due in part to some recent events the administration put into place that will hurt the dollar.Seems they want to create inflation because they can deal with trying to fix it.It will cause them to print money,that will trash the dollar,commodity prices will rise,the price of food will rise,the price of gold will go up....I heard a discussion on this recently and my head was spinning at the end of it.

    Please don't ask me to explain any further,all I know is this is part of some master plan by the FED ? and or the administration.It didn't sound good for us though....

    Please people we need to get this President,administration out of office as soon as possible before they do so much damage we will never recover.

    Gasoline and precious metals have been going up too.

    Thats pretty much what the article said. The Fed is the mastermind on this one.

    Jeeze. Wish I could put the whole thing up but its gone now.

    If anyone looks at the way things are going in thier own lives.

    Then hears this admin, and it media followers tell us things are getting better, no matter what.

    You have to start wondering;

    Are they intentionaly screwing things up?

    Hard to do in a city.

    I tried to have a small garden in buckets this year, it didn't go so well.
