I stopped by my local building supply store today to pick up a few things. One of the items I picked up had increased significantly in price since the last time I purchased it - almost 10%. I was advised by the girls behind the counter that they had recently received notice from manufacturers of vinyl siding and windows that prices were to increase an additional 7 - 9% April 1st. This isn't the first time I've heard this. As I look around I can't help but see price increases everywhere.
Last month Bernanke stated "Gas prices won't drive inflation". Excuse my language but it is my opinion the Bernanke is a first rate bullshit artist. He ranks right up there with Obama. He should have stated that gas prices won't be the only thing that drives inflation.
We simply cannot believe what these idiots are trying to sell us. Think about this. The American Dollars is the worlds reserve currency. Oil is bought and sold globally with U.S. Dollars. Don't let these politically motivated hacks tell you that it's speculators and instabilities in the middle east that are soley responsible for the increase in oil prices. No. The truth is that the U.S. Dollar is being devalued.....everyday. As the value of the dollar goes down it takes more of them to buy the same amount of anything - including oil. The libs are crying foul that the oil companies are making record profits but the truth is that the record profits they made this year don't have the buying power of the profits they made 5 years ago. Our dollar is becoming worthless.
As things become more expensive and salaries stay the same or drop, significant problems arise. People aren't able to buy as much. As much food. As much clothing. New cars. We will ultimately get to the point that we won't be able to purchase the bare necessities. More and more people will have to depend upon the government to supplement their existence. Oh wait! They already are!
No matter what the talking heads are saying, we are steadily sinking financially. We as a nation are never, ever going to be able to repay our national debt. Ever. The numbers simply don't work. Anyone who tells you differently is lying. Those who have come to this realization have started to prepare. They are networking and stockpiling. They are becoming self sufficient.
Again I urge you all. Wake up and see what's going on around you. Make the necessary arrangements to become self sufficient. Educate your neighbors, friends, and family. Prepare.
