We don’t hear much from the media today on the rising cost of food and other essentials these days so I thought I would mention it. Ever notice how that five pound bag of sugar is now only four pounds but the price has gone up? Seems to me every item in the local grocery store has gone up at least one dollar or more while packaging has downsized to smaller portions. Sadly I think we are just beginning to see the tip of the iceberg on food prices and fully expect to see all of these prices double as Obamacare becomes fully implemented. Time will tell and we shall soon see the tide of hyper inflation swelling over us all.
