Zimbabwe Ben comes to Trader Joe’s

January 26, 2013
By

In 2010, we noted the Bernanke effect on packages of chestnuts at Trader Joe’s, shrinking the contents by 19% for an effective 23% price inflation.

2012 brings us more news of the Deficit-Monetizer-in-Chief’s impact on Trader Joe’s shoppers. The store’s iconic “Two-buck Chuck” Charles Shaw wine is getting a 25% price increase.

As the intellectual heavyweight team of Robert Reich and Sarah Palin note, QE infinity is designed to crush the working and middle classes with food and energy inflation while making the rich richer by increasing the value of their (often leveraged) assets.

Are your wages increasing as fast as grocery prices are?

      A story from, what, six years ago? A guy from the NCarolina branch of my company comes to visit us in Silicon Valley. During the conversation he remarks “You guys pay about the same for energy in a month as our cost for a year.”
      At that time the sites were roughly equivalent in size. Today…guess which is bigger and which is stagnant?

    3 short years, while Ogabe is still in office. Can’t wait for the lolz…

    Maybe even sooner if we add tens of thousands of illegals.

      We’re going to need a bigger printing press. ;)

      The illegal amnesty plan is back from the dead.

      So, the lying communists may get their chance to destroy America far quicker than expected.

        The usual RINO suspects are backing them up?
        Thought so.

    Stay away from that 2-buck Chuck, though. Regardless of price, it’s kinda nasty.

    2011 Death statistics:

    323 by semi automatic rifles

    496 by common hammers

    650 by everyday knifes

    over 12,000 by drunk drivers

    over 195,000 by medical malpractice

    You are SIX HUNDRED times more likely
    to DIE by using socialist 0bamacare, than by
    a semi automatic rifle (a fact liberals hate).

    The U.S. Constitution guarantees our right to
    bear arms, yet the lying liberal communists
    would rather shread the Constitution and begin
    full blown communism even though history proves
    that their ideology is a 100% failure. Only the
    left can be so willfully ignorant and clueless.

    Gun store employee unintentionally shot by another employee

    “A 58-year-old woman was working at Dawsonville Gun and Pawn shop in Dawsonville, Georgia when she was unintentionally shot in the leg by another employee.

    . . .”

      ^ Meanwhile THOUSANDS DIE under socialized medicince and THOUSANDS more innocent babies are brutally MURDERED by godless leftist scumbags who screech their angry faux outrage over normal daily accidents, yet remain willfuly ignorant and blind over the “actual” problems that are slaughtering innocent Americans every single day.

      Loser.

        A person can go out and buy all the supplemental insurance or medical care they want if they can afford it. Doctors accept cash and hospitals accept cash. The only place selling medical care is illegal is Cuba and North Korea. Private healthcare thrives in England, Canada, Europe, etc. Only poor people have to worry about Death Panels.

          Your marxist ideologies are a proven FAILURE, comrade. It’s just some of us have learned the lessons of history, whereas you fools have doomed yourself to repeat them again & again until the Republic is destroyed.

          Idiots, all of you.

            Meanwhile, traitors Schumer, McCain, Durbin, Graham, Menendez, Rubio, Bennet and Flake announce their bipartisan plans to further destroy the Republic by surrendering to illegal foreign invaders — all the while, the communist idiots happily cheer on America’s downfall and cry tears of joy for their marxist leaders.

            Idiots, all of you.

    I see that Conservative governor Jan Brewer is expanding Medicaid benefits just as Obama wished.

    • Die Commie Die on January 28, 2013 at 12:26 pm

      No other way to get money into the state since Obama destroyed all the jobs.

      That’s also “just as Obama wished”, moron.

    Don’t worry Poli. The Tea Party will be totally irrelevant by the mid-terms and the RINOs will be fully in charge.

    • Die Commie Die on January 28, 2013 at 2:06 pm

      ^ This, from the clown cheering for gun control and red states being destroyed by socialism under a failed liberal economy. You reek of RINO stench and your projecting exposes your deep love of liberal communism.

      Go cry more tears of joy for your lefty soulmate, Obama, who is ‘getting what he wished’

      Idiot.

      Good thing Thomas Jefferson didn’t think surrender the way you do.

      Grow a brain spine and realize that blind leftist fools NEVER blame themselves.

      Fight or surrender like a limp wristed coward. Don’t kid yourself; those are your options.

    As if it’s not obvious, I Am another one of Cal the crazy ass liberal’s sock puppets. Why bother engaging in conversation with me? I’m not serious, I Am just The Trolls.

    • Die Commie Die on January 29, 2013 at 10:00 am

      It’s obvious.
