    Listen up, idiot-person.

    There's always inflation, 2% is a target for a healthy economy.

    Here are some observations, and I'm guessing you have been conditioned to think the way you do because you watch and read partisan news:  Republican president, you don't **** about inflation, deflation, anything that can be remotely connected to him.  Republican president, free money is called tax cuts, democrat president it's called free money. 

    When prices were driven up through tariffs by Trump, something republicans would normally be squealin' like stabbed pigs about, nothing.  Silence. 

    We have had a world-wide pandemic.  There are supply shortages everywhere impacting just about every sector of the US and world economies.  Also, people have been sitting at home, not spending money on travel, gas, etc.  This has resulted in people sitting on a lot of cash.   Supply disruptions and extra cash = inflation.

    You notably didn't b!tch about the massive corporate tax cut, which dumped an insane amount of cash into corporations (purpose to increase capitol spending and jobs).  Economists universally said companies are profit oriented and they'll just buy back stocks.  That's what happened.  Durp!  Who saw that coming?  (everyone). 

    Please stop your man-crush on me and John, you man-robot simpleton hack.

    @Lit ain't wrong. This is today at Costco. I was here 2 weeks ago and these were their normal $3.49 a pound that they've always been. What happened in the last 2 weeks to justify a 50% price increase?



    in 20 years of egging ive not seen a whole brisket that cheap nor even a prime brisket at the local markets.
    Just try buying brisket in Canada. Even the worst cuts are prohibitively expensive. You can forget about getting anything within the realm of a prime equivalent here. 

    Edit: …But on the plus side, beaver brisket is dirt cheap. 

    Curious, why is beef so expensive in Canada?

    I think it has to do with the fact that Joe Biden is Canadian.

    Prices never went up from the last administration. This one has cause crazy inflation in less than a year. Blame it on supply chains but costcos brisket cooler is full and they have doubled in price. Every store has baby backs in stock yet they are double the price. Your argument is silly. Remember when Trump was president and the shelves were empty for some things but prices never went up much?

    No.  I remember prices going up on things then down then up regardless of who's president because it doesn't f*ckin matter, you buffoon.

    Also, when Trump was president I didn't make correlations between prices and his presidency, except when they were disrupted through his trade war.

    I don’t recall ever saying there was no inflation, but then you have a penchant for remembering lots of things that nobody ever said.  You’re like a child who poops in his own bathtub and suddenly thinks he has lots of new toys to play with.  

    Once again you have succeeded in being the most boring person on this forum.  Well done.  As fun as this has all been (not much), I am guessing everyone else here has seen and heard enough.  Start an inflation thread if you really want to keep talking about this stuff.  You can even focus it on the price of brisket if you want to try and keep it Egg related.  In the meantime I’m done talking about it here and will just plan on ignoring your sorry excuses for responses from now on and hope this thread can get back to things that matter, like the latest and greatest purchases people have made.  I’m sorry you’re suddenly poor and can’t partake.  Good luck to you.

    Not entirely just stock buy-backs; a few of them used the money to launch giant dicks into Space (one of them aboard a rocket that looked like one, too).  Trickle-Down Economics just didn't work (except, possibly, on the last space flight, when the on-board toilet malfunctioned).

    @JohnInCarolina I don’t recall which thread you were posting in with regards to dish washers but Fwiw we went with a Bosch. a con for us is that it takes a bit more time
    to load and organize, possibly the layout is designed for more cleaning efficiency but you simply can’t put as many dishes in as you could a older design.  
     A pro is that it doesn’t have a heater element so the lids to my Nalgene bottles don’t get melted or other plastics dangling below the rack. 
     It is so quiet you will open the door when it’s running and take one to the face.
    Thanks man.  We actually had a Bosch at our old house and loved it.  You just can’t get them right now, at least not for like 6-8 months, because of the chip shortage issue.
    Well, I knew my dishwasher was on the way out after 12+ years so I’ve started looking for options a while ago and the ones that looked like good candidates were constantly out of stock.  The rope that holds the door up gave up its last breath last week and almost broke a tile on the floor when it fell (a dishwasher door is surprisingly heavy).  The towel that was attached to the door handle saved the floor!  The drain hose connector cracked when I pulled out the dishwasher and another piece did not look good… Next day, the top of the line model in the 800 series was shown as available with a 1 day only discount on the Costco site.  I didn’t think twice, ordered it right away, and received it a couple if days later.  We looked locally in appliance stores and they all had over 6 months wait time so ordering online was a good move plus it was 500$ cheaper than purchasing in store and Costco extends the manufacturer’s warranty for a year.  It was a breeze to install. The model we got comes with a drying option called CrystalDry which is basically a chamber filled with minerals where the humid air is circulated and gets dried out by a chemical reaction which results in warmer dry air.  I wasn’t convinced at first because of negative reviews related to bad drying for Bosch dishwashers but I have to say that I am amazed at how dry everything comes out.  With my previous dishwasher (LG), I had to dry out everything.  With the Bosch, even plastic comes out bone dry!  This is easily saving me 15 minutes of work with big loads.

    Aren’t the packing houses the ones that took the brunt of the Covid impact?  Seems right.  It was creeping up before that, but the big jumps are 2020 and 2021.  Or does Hunter Biden have any secret deals with meat packers?  We should examine his laptop.
