When Bacon (prices) Fly

Bacon

Bacon, food of the 1%ers

I went grocery shopping yesterday, hoping to get some beef. Took one look at the prices and came home with bargain chicken instead.
And bacon? Fuggedabout it.

This is from Cattle Network, Oct 3:

“Several beef, pork and dairy products rose in price during the second half of the year, accounting for much of the increase in the marketbasket,” said John Anderson, AFBF’s deputy chief economist. “As anticipated, food prices have increased moderately – by about 2 percent – during 2014, which is essentially in line with the average rate of inflation over the past 10 years.”
Items showing retail price increases from a year ago include:
sirloin tip roast, up 27 percent to $5.52 per pound
ground chuck, up 17 percent to $4.31 per pound
sliced deli ham, up 16 percent to $5.44 per pound
bacon, up 9 percent to $5.11 per pound
shredded cheddar, up 6 percent to $4.78 per pound
eggs, up 7 percent to $1.95 per dozen
whole milk, up 2 percent to $3.78 per gallon

On the bright and slightly unbelievable side, gas prices are way down. I actually saw a sign for $2.99/gal at the warehouse club gas station. Wow. I haven’t seen gas below $3 since dissent was patriotic.

    My bday is next month – I’m going to splurge on both beef & bacon! So there, veggiefascists!

    when I went grocery shopping the other day and looked at the prices of meat, I told a checker i might have to become a vegatarian. but that is not cheap either

  3. gumsnapper says:

    If it was an R in the WH, the media would be discussing the high price of groceries.

  4. DandyTIger says:

    Bacon is all you need.

  5. HELENK3 says:

    i can not believe the price of Chicken. That and hamburger used to be the staple of dinners during hard times. Not now. Cheese used to be a government handout to the poor now it is more expensive than beef

    Gas has come down quite a bit but it is still more expensive than it was when Obama took office. Back when I was commuting to college and law school it was down near $1 gallon.

    I’ve been eating a lot of chicken lately. The price of boneless chicken breast is half the cost of ground beef.

        I remember, and bananas were 5 cents/lb. And someone else pumped the gas (and got paid for doing it). Didn’t chicken used to be about 27cents /lb, too? Bread was about 25 cents a loaf. Geez Louise.

    I am really scared about what is being taught to our kids today. they are the future of this country and they are being taught to hate this country.
    In the last 6 years how many stories like this have come out. Maybe home schooling would be the best thing to happen to them at least they would be taught some values

    • Constance says:

      That’s why home schooling is happening. There are well established networks for homeschooling in Washington state. The home school kids have time to pursue other interests and they still meet up with their network for socializing a couple of times a week. My kids would be dead and I would be in prison if I tried to home school but I did send them to Catholic school which is also very good for average students. Why let the government indoctrinate your kids? I don’t worry about the Catholics indoctrinating them. Catholics have to be the worst brain washers on the planet. They have access to kids all day for 12 years and at the end of that probably 10% are practicing Catholics.

      • HELENK3 says:

        I went to 13 schools in 12 years. both public and catholic. never once in any school was I taught to be anti-American. I was taught that America is not perfect and made mistakes but 9 out of 10 times went on to correct them. We were taught to love our country, never be afraid to question our country and to do the best we could to make it a great country.
        somewhere along the line those teachings have been lost and we all lose by that loss

    • Somebody says:

      Homeschooling can be an answer but you have to be very careful what curriculum you choose. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of middle ground with homeschool curriculum either.

      You have God, God, God, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…..seriously they work bible verses into math……why do bees pollinate……because God told them to…..headdesk.

      The secular curriculum is mostly what public schools use and most of that has now been taken over by common core. I went on a shopping binge a couple of years ago for that very reason. I’ve mostly used secular curriculum through the years and I monitor EVERYTHING.

      History in the secular curriculum can be troublesome. I’ve had to correct so many things, like Pearl Harbor was a communication mix up. The next section in the same history book had exactly 4 sentences about the atrocities of the Nazis, followed by page after page of all the terrible things the allies did, fire bombings, etc. I thought I was going to have an aneursym. What we ended up doing was a lot of independent research and then I let my daughter draw her own conclusions, but I will admit to a heavy influence and maybe more than a couple of rants, LOL! Still it gave her a chance to dive more deeply into the subject instead of just taking verbatim what was in the curriculum That particular curriculum was given to me by a friend, she spent a fortune year after year on curriculum from a chichi prep school. I should have known better she’s a major Obama loving, vile prog……in fact since Obama we’re not friends anymore.

      Last year my daughter did a college level World History course……OMG!!! Aneurysm time again! The professor touted how Sharia law is so liberating for women, AYFKM! The whole course was Islam loving to the max. Once again I insisted she research Sharia law for herself. The course load was quite heavy so I didn’t make her do a lot of research while she was taking the class, but after she finished the course I did. In fact I ended up not doing a civics curriculum I wanted to incorporate the second half of the year because I felt it was more important to explore some of the assertions made in the world history course.

      I think kids can get a good education in any environment but the parents need to be involved and vigilant. Obviously most homeschool parents are a little more involved, but not all. Some parents just sit their kids in front of a computer…….which is kind of what we’re doing this year with virtual school. Although I review all the lessons and if I see her having problems I use the resources I have on hand to help her and expound on things if necessary. Apparently in the virtual school world we’re the exception not the norm. Homeschooling isn’t for everyone either, some parents really shouldn’t homeschool.

      • HELENK3 says:

        I cry for the future of this country.
        we are teaching kids that to be successful is wrong. that if you are white you are wrong. if you do not want to be a slave you are wrong. never ever be the best you can be . do not think just follow. having fun is the be all and end all of what you are supposed to . the role model for success for female is the life of Julia

      • Jadzia says:

        For people who are interested, there is a good site about secular homeschooling called… secularhomeschooling.com. Some of the ladies over there are kind of crazy-zealous about their non-religiosity, but most are pretty nice. It was helpful to me when I home-summer-schooled my teenager over the summer, which was a nightmare that I would not wish on my worst enemy.

      We’re having a neighborhood drinking game. Every time an Elsa or an Anna or an Olaf comes to the door. I don’t expect to be able to climb the stairs to go to bed so I’m making up the sofa ahead of time.

      • Constance says:

        Well there aren’t any other branded heroines for girls to be. The Disney Princesses wear clothes and most women in movies don’t have a wardrobe. Little girls would freeze their asses off if they went as Storm.

        • elliesmom says:

          Why do costumes have to be “branded”? I don’t remember ever dressing up or my kids dressing up as a movie or TV character. A Disney cruise ship was docked next to us in Nassau. Most of the kids getting off the ship were dressed in Disney inspired clothes. Why? It was hot and humid, and the kids looked miserable. Especially the little girls in long Disney Princess dresses. Parents are nuts today.

            LOL at that cartoon, Helen.

            How to really scare Dems:

          • Constance says:

            Branded store bought costumes are easy, Moms are the only people who are going to deal with getting the kid a costume and so many of them are working. I went out to my local costume and display store last Friday at 10:30 am and they had a full parking lot and a line to get costumes. This week is likely worse. Many moms are going to jus drive by the drug store and buy what they have.

            In my day I made my costume out of stuff I scrounged and since my kids went to school and I wasn’t working at the time I used to sew costumes for them that they thought up. Those were the days!

          • Jadzia says:

            I do remember going trick or treating at different times as a “bum” and a “gypsy,” but those costumes would probably not fly today.

            WRT the princesses, I don’t know–many little girls just LOOOOOVE them. Although my personal disposable income is mostly directed toward propping up the Hello Kitty empire.

      • Somebody says:

        Your drinking game sounds like fun!! We’d be sloshed in under 30 minutes here. My neighborhood is ridiculous on halloween, seriously I’ve seen Disney less crowded. I live in a semi-rural area, but my neighborhood has sidewalks and streetlights so everybody and their brother comes to my neighborhood to trick or treat. Cars are parked everywhere it’s a madhouse.

        We leave and go to the movies. The last time I gave out candy I spent a fortune. Along with my neighbors we tried to keep a count that year, but we lost count somewhere after 1,200. Do you have any idea how much it costs to provide candy for that many kids? It’s utterly ridiculous and I refuse to participate. Finally after several years everyone on my street decided to all go in together, so we have 4 or 5 people handing out candy for the entire street. We put up barricades at the end of our street because we don’t want cars coming down here and we sure as hell don’t want assholes parking on our lawns or blocking our driveway. I buy several bags of candy to contribute, but we leave no later than 5pm and stay gone until at least 11pm.

        • leslie says:

          what a smart group of neighbors!. In my neighborhood, we have many children and their parents (and the high school kids as well) I love seeing them (but I wouldn’t if there were 1,200) in their costumes. And I hate having to drive home from work on Halloween as the street lights are very dim here and I have to be so very cautious by the time I get home. they don’t come to me anymore (ever since I laced the chocolate with rum- just kidding) because I now live in a condo building. I don’t blame them at all. I’d like to sit out on the front steps to hand out treats, but the building discourages that.
          This year I’ve offered to go to my son’s house and hand out treats so he and his wife can take the little ones out without worrying about trick-or-treaters being left out at their house.

    Food prices are up a lot. Meat is especially expensive lately. Combine that with people working only half time and not in the professional job they were trained to do and you have many Citizens under financial stress regardless of the happy talk on the economy. Most the people I know are coping with it by taking up cash only un taxable work in their spare time. Dog walking, house cleaning, baby sitting, Yard clean up, growing their medical marijuana maximum and selling the excess.

    I have to admit I am nervous about my Giants.

    When you follow a losing team you learn not to get your hopes too high so you won’t be disappointed. Most years since I have been following them they don’t make the playoffs. Usually when they do make the post-season they lose in the first round. In 1989 they made it all the way to the World Series before Mother Nature intervened. In 2002 they got so close you could already taste the champagne before losing to the Angels.

    In 2010 I refused to get excited. I kept telling myself they wouldn’t make the playoffs. Then I told myself they would eventually lose. I was determined not to let them break my heart again. But they went ahead and won it all.

    In 2011 they went in the toilet after a visit to the White House. They were the World Champs and they were leading their division but around mid-July they met Barack Obama and shook his hand and their season was effective over after that. The Obama Touch turns everything to shit.

    In 2012 they bumbled and stumbled until August and September, then they got hot and came from behind to win the division. They were one game from being eliminated by the Reds when Hunter Pence made a rousing speech and they won the divisional series. Then they were on the brink of elimination against the Cards before they came back and won the league championship series. Then they swept the Tigers.

    In 2013 they sucked for a lot of different reasons.

    This year they started red hot and I started to get excited in April and May. Then June arrived and any Giants fan can tell you about the dreaded June Swoon that the San Francisco Giants were infamous for. This June Swoon may have been the worst ever, lasting until August and leaving the Giants staring in the distance at the tail lights of the Hated Dodgers who were running away with the division.

    I never saw any team back into the playoffs in less convincing fashion. They were cold at the end but the other contenders were even colder. The went on the road to Pittsburgh for a one-game, do-or-die playoff. They won.

    Then they faced the Nationals who had manhandled them all season. Somehow they won without getting hits. Then they used that same smoke & mirrors offense against the Cards.

    Now they are doing it to the Royals.

    God forgive me, but my boys have got me excited and hopeful.

    One more game. Just win one more game.

    • HELENK3 says:

      I can totally relate. You don’t want to get your hopes up, but you just can’t help yourself. If they win you’ll be elated, your team will be the reigning champs!! If they lose the sting of that loss is especially bad if your team makes it all the way to the world series/superbowl/championship game…….those losses hurt like hell, so close yet so far away.

      I can’t wait for the game tonight…….I’m pulling for the Giants!

      Are you all ready for the game? I have a bunch of snacks, dips and such prepared and of course chilled beer. We’ve watched the the other games inside on the 70 inch, but I think we’re going to watch tonight’s game in the man cave on the 4k tv…..the picture is just so darn good. We were chatting with several of the neighbors and they sort of hinted they’d like to drop by for the game so I said sure come on by I’ll have beer and snacks. Oh and btw, still no beer fridge in the man cave they’ll have to get by with a cooler or coming inside to the fridge, LOL!

      GO GIANTS!!

  29. The Klown says:

    This reads like a movie script:

    From the moment that Sharyl Attkisson met a shadowy source I’ll call Big Mac, she was plunged into a nightmare involving mysterious surveillance of her computers.

    They met at a McDonald’s in Northern Virginia at the beginning of 2013, and the source (she dubs him Number One) warned her about the threat of government spying. During their next hamburger rendezvous, Big Mac told Attkisson, then a CBS News reporter constantly at odds with the Obama administration, that he was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” by his examination of her computer and that this was “worse than anything Nixon ever did.”

    Attkisson’s forthcoming book–“Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction and Intimidation in Obama’s Washington”—reads in part like a spy thriller. Just when you think Attkisson’s imagination might be running away with her comes wave after wave of evidence that both her CBS computer and personal iMac were repeatedly hacked and its files accessed, including one on Benghazi. A consultant hired by CBS reached the same conclusion. Further scrutiny of her personal desktop proves that “the interlopers were able to co-opt my iMac and operate it remotely, as if they were sitting in front of it.” And an inspection revealed that an extra fiber-optics line had been installed in Attkisson’s home without her knowledge.

    This is chilling stuff.

    There is the strong implication that an administration that spied on the Associated Press and Fox News correspondent James Rosen might have been involved. A Justice Department spokesman said in an earlier statement that “to our knowledge” the department “has never ‘compromised’ Ms. Attkisson’s computers” or tried to obtain information from any of her devices. A spokeswoman for CBS News said the network had no comment on the book.

    In the fall of 2013, with White House officials accusing Attkisson of being biased in her Benghazi reporting, the files in her MacBook Air suddenly began deleting at hyperspeed right before her eyes. She videotaped the process and showed it to two computer experts. “They’re [blanking] with you,” one says. “They’re trying to send you a message,” says the other. The experts also found evidence that the intruders had tried to cover their tracks by erasing 23 hours of log-in information.

    Everything she reports is easily within the capabilities of our government.

    But wait! There’s more!

    The computer melodrama forms the backdrop for the deterioration of Attkisson’s relationship with CBS, where she worked for two decades and won Emmys and other awards. Time and again, she writes, network executives in New York and Washington derailed her stories and treated her like a troublemaker:

    “They rarely said the story wasn’t going to air. They just let it sit around and ‘loved it’ until it began to stink like old fish.”

    And Attkisson names names, saying the blocking of her work became virtually routine under CBS anchor Scott Pelley and his then-executive producer, Pat Shevlin. Stories were repeatedly rewritten, watered down and delayed until they never made air, she says. And Attkisson says these weren’t just stories that took on politically charged controversies involving the administration, but also pieces that challenged government waste and corporate conduct, such as the questions surrounding Boeing’s Dreamliner.

    Perhaps the most eye-opening tale involves CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Benghazi and the president. During the second presidential debate in 2012, Obama challenged Mitt Romney by insisting he had labeled the assault in Libya a terrorist attack the very next day. This became a huge controversy, especially since CNN’s Candy Crowley had sided with the president.

    Turns out that Steve Kroft had conducted a “60 Minutes” interview with Obama the day after the attack, portions of which had never aired. When Attkisson did a story on the flap, her CBS bosses instructed her to use a particular script and a particular sound bite that seemed to back up the president’s version.

    She was stunned when a CBS colleague later read her another exchange from the interview:

    KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya attack.

    OBAMA: Right.

    The correspondent then asked point-blank:

    KROFT: Do you believe that this was a terrorist attack?

    OBAMA: Well, it’s too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans.

    Attkisson writes, “I couldn’t get past the fact that upper-level journalists at CBS had been a party to misleading the public.”

    Under pressure from Attkisson and others, the network posted the exchange on its website the Sunday night before the election, but it got lost in the final hours of the campaign. She says CBS News President David Rhodes promised her there would be an internal investigation, but she never heard another word about it.

    There was a time when I would have dismissed Attkisson as someone with paranoid delusions, but now I think we aren’t being paranoid enough.

    Soooo apparently the big news on my street is that there is a private detective hanging around for the past couple of weeks. The PI is in a black van with Texas plates. According to the neighbors he’s been here for almost 3 weeks. He parks at the other end of the street but every half hour he drives down the street slowly, turns around in the cul-de-sac and goes back to the other end of the street and parks until his next round. He’s not a very sly PI.

    A couple of the neighbors have tried to block him. One pounded on his window, he cracked it and told him he was a PI and registered with the Sheriff’s department they knew he was here and to piss off.

    I don’t hang out in the front of my house and my garage opens on the side so I really don’t have any vantage point to see the goings on out in the street. Well I could if I sat in my formal dining room with the drapes open, but I’m not. We were also out of town for a week. Anyway why he’s here is driving the neighbors crazy they’re all buzzing about it. They’re convinced that the government or an insurance company hired this PI due to perhaps some kind of fraud or lawsuit??? I can’t imagine the government would hire a PI, they have lots of agents of their own. I said maybe it’s the Publisher’s Clearing House prize van, LOL!!!

    Soooooo anybody have any theories?? He’s just been here for a long time, which has got to be expensive and it’s creepy too.

    • HELENK3 says:

      is anyone on your block drawing injury compensation? If so tell them not to mow the lawn. PI’s take pictures.

      Nasty divorce maybe? Maybe someone is having an affair? More interesting than my neighborhood.

    • Somebody says:

      I’m not aware of anyone on the block being on disability. There is a man down at the other end of the street that is in fact disabled, at least he rides one of those scooters. He’s retired from the secret service, he’s quite old so he’s been retired a LONG time. I seriously doubt anybody is looking at him. I’m not aware that he’s even on disability, I just think he happens to be retired and is now disabled.

      There aren’t any nasty divorces going on that I’m aware of and I sure as heck am not aware of anyone having an affair.

      We left and went to the store this evening. About 20 minutes after we left my neighbor texted us to say the PI had just driven by. That was the one and only time anyone saw him today, but it brought half the neighbors on the street out. They’re all really pissed about this guy hanging around. I swear I haven’t seen him, but if I do I’m simply going to call the cops which none of these dumbasses have done. I don’t understand, if they’re so suspect of the man call the police. They’ve simply taken this man’s word that he’s a PI from Texas, he could be a serial killer for goodness sakes. If we call the cops and the cops tell us he’s a PI and it’s all good that’s one thing, but nobody has bothered to do that.

    because an old man might argue with them they sent 24 cops and an armored vehicle.

    Helicopter outside out of home tonight. Hovered with a guy staring down hanging out of the side. Right above the electrical wires. Why. I doubt I am interesting enough to throw up a flag. I read here drudge gay patriot pajama media I am hardly a threat. Makes no sense if I were a threat they could monitor everything without the need for an obvious helicopter. I live between two small hills very close to the county airport that has gotten very busy since 9/11 so maybe it has some sort of safeguard but stepping out on the deck and seeing a helicopter is strange. I could see the guy hanging out. I am not so paranoid that it had to do with me but I could not get an answer as to why a helicopter was twenty feet above my house. Calls to everyone go returned. Why.
    I am hardly a risk and they did not depart when I looked directly at them. I would think it might have something to do with county airport but that makes no sense to hover so close to my home. I live on the downside of a hill/mountain only twenty homes are visible. Very strange I can get no answers and trust me I am so boring I read here and a few other sites pass along a link but really kind of boring. Why would a helicopter be sent to suburbia? Why cannot I find out why? What authority do they have? Is the military allowed to be that close? Why would they? A Muslim family lives across the street. I never let my baby girl play outside at 8 alone. She plays with the Muslim boy she also plays with every other kid on the street but I am always on the stoop. I do not let her out of my sight. My job to make sure she is safe. If it means I be Islamaphobic big fucking deal. Call me what you want my brat comes first and I extend the same sentiment to Ebola sad heart breaking but fuck you elitist cum suckers telling me to consider a risk because some guy has serious emotional damage because his fuck up daddy was not deported and not allowed to bleed America dry his childhood angst should not result in millions of kids suffering.

      Tim it could have been a drill by DHS, they’ve been conducting them all over the country for a couple of years now. Google black helicopters over Miami or Houston. There are a couple of other cities too, but I can’t remember right now. The Miami one has some pretty good footage because a film crew was nearby and caught it.

      And the fight goes on — Morning Joe.
      I f*cking hate obama. And his smug, arrogant fellators.
      He said that while those health care workers*volunteers* should be honored. But the military is a different situation, are not there voluntarily They are ordered there by their commander in chief. So I guess he’s saying f*ck ’em.

      At least Joe is saying there’s no consistency and no leader. (Ron Klain is not the czar; he’s the internal coordinator.)

        What a bitch! She gives the best argument for forced quarantine ever. I haven’t seen any discussion on the money lost because of Ebola walking people. How much are the apartment landlords of Thomas Duncan losing because no one will rent the apartment he was holed up in? How much did the cruise ship who couldn’t dock in Mexico and the thousands of people who had their vacations ruined lose? How much did the bowling alley the NY guy went to lose when they had to close down? How much are local and federal governments spending for cleaning procedures?

        • mothy67 says:

          Fuck her and the horse she rode in on. She is a c word with a capital C. She made a personal courageous choice. Her choice. Brave woman but she does not get a pass for her altruism. I think she is a joke. Grow up. You are so caring that you go into the belly of the beast but you will not protect those around you from a very real threat. Selfish little bitch. I sacrificed so everyone else has to suffer from my tiny ego. GROW up.

    So I finally watched the Season premiere of The Walking Dead. Hot damn Carol flipping rocks. Love the fact that she is not an Angelina Wanna be playing a bad ass. Older but I think very sexy.
    A little worried because I read they plan on making Daryl gay. If it fits the story line fine but if it is a ratings ploy it is stupid as it is cables most successful show ever. Race is absent from the show. Glenn and Michonne are my favorites and race is never mentioned. I hope if they do make Daryl gay he just is I do not want a very special episode of The Walking Dead preaching to me. I am gay and the preachy leftist shit makes me sick.

    • votermom says:

      This season is really good! Love Carol!

      A little worried because I read they plan on making Daryl gay.

      Noooooo!!!!!!!!!! Way to piss off both the Caryl and the Baryl shippers! OMG! Daryl should just have a harem – Carol can be senior wife and Beth junior wife.

      • mothy67 says:

        I try to walk around things hen I feel passionate. So I take a stroll around Daryl. He has never had a sexual relationship with a woman on the show. He loves Carol he has shown up time and again when he shouldn’t. I have no problem with him being gay it kind of may fit. I just don’t want him to be an issue. Let him have a “friend” that he becomes more human for man woman whatever but let him be Daryl. The show is about a bunch of damaged people going beyond their own pity party to survive. Glenn and Michonne races are never mentioned. I love that why should sexuality be any different? If they can show a pig trying to rape a male child why not show a decent gay confused troubled gay man who cares about another man. I think the show is like like sitcoms on crack. Stuck in the middle. I welcome a natural gay story line on the show I just do not want to see it forced and preachy. Michonne already went down that road anyhow.

        • votermom says:

          Honk! Michonne & Andrea was a good storyline. And right now the new girl is a lesbian, isn’t she? (The one who was with the Governor at first).
          But with Daryl, the shippers are going to feel slapped in the face if he comes out as gay.
          You don’t think he & Carol have a sexual tension thing going on?

    16138 dollars to be quarantined for three weeks. No hospital bills no food charge no 7.99 for Netflix. Sorry I feel no pity I would love to lay in bed for 21 days. Granted sleeping is my favorite thing ever but who does not want to break from life. I said it before but I was mis diagnosed with hep C. I would not share toothpaste leave my toothbrush near my kid. I had to register in NYC. I knew in my heart I did not have it but I took crazy precautions. I had markers that said I had the bug. some of those markers show positive for a ton of anti-bodies. I did not or ever have hep c. I knew I did not. Just knew it when I finally got to a doctor that ran a viral load he said you do not have it and very unlikely that you ever did. No detectable anti bodies and no sign of the disease. I marginalized myself when I was told I had a communicable disease. How can a health worker not except 21 days. I went years of no sex because I would not hurt someone else. Grow up you selfish bitch is all I think.
