I am on fixed income, so any price increase(outright or through a company's attempted deception)of decreasing size without a proportional decrease in cost, or increasing price as well as a decrease in quantity, has a direct effect on my purchasing power. My social security payments have to be stretched further to accommodate these price changes, or I have to go without.
When I was working and my services were needed because of high demand and few professionals in my specialty field, I could charge enough to make costs relative to income. Unfortunately, I became ill and unable to continue working. Social security covers only the most basic of needs. I am thankful that both hubby and I had contributed to retirement plans, which enable us to have a fairly good quality of life. We do pay in to the Federal and State governments because we opted to get ahead by working hard, saving when we could, and spending only what we could afford. Our prudent lifestyle helps pay for those who cannot afford to pay in anything to the government. Believe me when I say that I miss working in my profession, for the enjoyment and intrinsic rewards of working, not to mention the higher financial remuneration. But, that's life I guess, so we roll with the flow. Above all, I am thankful that I wake up each morning to enjoy the gifts our Creator has provided
I agree with you and am on a fixed income too and even dropped over a $100,000 on health issues. But I am still here and still blessed by the Creator's gifts. When I said it was relative.. I meant that what you have in material wealth then someone wants it and will do everything possible to get it, but what you don't have they can't get. Sure we complain about the higher prices and the lower quanities, but we keep right on buying the stuff.

Well, my fine feathered friends, it looks like a SHTF scenario is about to unfold.@ Abeliever: Please review the recent articles about the Louisiana sinkhole, which has been kept under wraps by mainstream media, possibly to avoid panic.
The sinkhole is growing exponentially now and has swallowed up 3 more acres in less than a week, and one acre in one day. It is now 12 plus acres. More than 20 acres beyond this are sinking, and there will be more evacuations needed. This has been accompanied by a sharp uptick in seismic activity, and scientists are now worried about disruption of the New Madrid Fault line. A panel of 13 scientists (unlucky number) are trying to figure out what is going on, and there seems no way to stop it. It is the first of its kind in the world, and lucky us, we are near the fireworks. Workers had to stop inspecting because of seismic activity. There is much news about this now. Check it out. Just google the Louisiana sinkhole and you will find lots of information.

We've just got to grow more veggies and fruit, raise chickens, cows for milk and meat, etc. Rural people have it over on the city folks, but those city folks will try to get ours when they run out. I do not worry. Let's say that I just try to be proactive. I do feel sad for the little kids growing up now. They will never have it as good as we did.

Can you believe the cereal boxes? Smaller and smaller, less cereal in them. Higher priced. The wife like Corn Pops (used to be called Sugar Pops but we can't have that now can we/)and they are now $5.89 in Ron's IGA and oddly, Dollar General has fewer and fewer deliveries of cereal. No Corn Pops for months. Diet Coke Zero is sometimes 3 for $10 but usually over $4.80 per 12 pack!

Snickers Almond and Snickers Peanut Butter squares are so small but the packaging is the same size. At Dollar General those are .75 cents but at Road Ranger across the street they are $1.25. A 14 oz Coke in the plastic bottle is $1.89!! Diesel at $4 per gallon costs me $160 to fill up my F350 Super Duty. Gas at $3.75 is only $75 (20 gallon tank versus 40) for my Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited. So $235 every week for two vehicles? Crazy.

I make OK money but what are people doing that make $10-$15 per hour?$600 a week for groceries,gas,electricity,wate r,TV,telephone, mortgage and internet for most of us. It scares me....

It's not over. Obama has a carbon tax coming that will drive up the price of fuel even higher plus electricity. We may all have to get together to share to live.

My 100'x100' garden in tilled, finally got a few days of dry this week. Lot's of planting to do! We'll see but I'm not sleeping as well as I used to.:-)

5am and my world is white. Been too muddy to plow here for a month or more. Costs nearly a $1000 for my son to fill up the Kenworth and my poor old pickup truck has not seen a full tank in nearly 2 years.

I wish I made $10 an hour but nobody needs an old man to work so I just work on my own stuff and raise chickens for a little extra egg money and help other old folks with their projects and trade eggs and work for meals. I do get some good pies and cakes. LOL I

Oh, I have seen all that you describe, and you're right! Just wait until we feel the effects of the carbon tax. Everything has gone up. Just insuring my property is becoming exhorbitant, and it may price me right out of where I love to live. I am down from 6 horses to one horse and our pony. I just about gave away two blue-blooded Tennessee walkers, just so that I knew they would be used kindly. Bales of hay and bags of grain just got way too high.

It's 8 EST here and from the looks of it outside the snow all but passed us by!!! Yay! There's a little on the cars and even less showing on the ground!!*happy dance*.
Over the weekend I did purchase a couple of simple bird feeders and today I will head for the farm store to find some bird feed! I'll definitely have all the supplies ready before the g'kids get back from spring break so they can help set everything up!

Fuel prices going higher? Ouch! I run up and down the road a lot so this is not good! My mom only went to town once a week for shopping and I go at least once a day. Hmmm, I do remember dad stopping at the store on the way home from work every day to pick up a gallon of milk for our family of 5. 7 gallons of milk a week and 1 carton of *cokes*. Now it's a gallon of milk a week just for me and several fast food drive thru *cokes*.:-(

Good morning, my fine feathered friends. Looks like cold wind will dominate the day, but thank-goodness we only got a coating of snow. Plenty of birds to wake me up EARLY this morning. Their tweets, yacks, and caws work better than an alarm clock. The only problem is that I can't set their time.

@Good Morning.. I obviously came from a different time frame or area. We went to the barn twice a day to milk the cow to feed 5 kids plus the parents and grandma that all lived in a 4 room cottage. I remember getting a coke at about age 7, took one sip and the foam went up my nose and I dropped and broke the bottle. I think I got another one around age 14 and that is also when I learned about potato chips and got to sleep in a real bed.

Dad only had one old car that he drove daily to work and brought home blocks of ice about twice a week to keep in the ice box on the back porch since we had no electricity. Water came from an ever running spring or a rain barrel. Outhouse was up the hill and quite cold and snowy sometimes to get there, the other times it was full of wasps and other critters.

On Saturday nights, he would take the battery off that old car and attach it to the old radio so we could actually hear the Grand Ole Opry in the house and also listen to a couple of other programs. He would roll start that old car off the hill on Sunday mornings so as to go to Church.

So no matter what the prices of those things we require now-a-days, life is much better than those NOT so "GOOD OLD DAYS" we are all blessed. But we were much happier and content back then just because we did not know any better.

I missed the ice box era and I'm not unhappy about that. Lol. The GOOD OLE DAYS was that as kids we could SAFELY roam the woods for hours, coming home about supper time! But we did have an outhouse and we did have "Betsy" our milk cow until they decided getting up early to milk, buying the feed and the general aggravation wasnt worth it! We had several pigs. Later dad had a Hereford herd. Early on we raised broiler chickens--not the 30.000 or 40,000 they do now, but 4-5000. On a Saturday before they were taken to market we killed and cleaned enough chickens to last till the next flock was grown. We always had phones (party line of 8!) and electricity. We just built a house on my family's property. My great grandfather even lived here but he was living with my grandparents at that time. I still have my grandpas 8N tractor, bought new in 1952--my birth year. Whoops! TMI. I'll shut up now... Lol

God makes It to rain on the just and the unjust; So as it would be for the poor working class citizens or the filthy-rich. when the poopy DOES hit the platter, and the electric does go off, What will the blooming Idiot Bloomgerg do with his twenty seven billion dollars ? his assets will be frozen just as everyone elses. hopefully he will be out on the streets begging for crumbs as we are. He for sure won't be dictating anyones life, telling them how much soda they can consume or how many french fries they can eat. What an IDIOT ! If he can donate twelve million dollars of his own money to try and ban guns, then he can afford to pay twelve more million in taxes...Feed the hungry ? Myself, I will be chowing down on the good garden food that i've preserved and protecting it from the likes of him with my guns and/or assault weapons as they call them. I will eat and drink as much as i want till my belly is full, then if there's no running water, I will go out in the back yard and take a good POOP ! haha! HE and all the others like him can hang out down on wall street and eat 'THE BIG ROTTEN APPLE' who do they think they're fool'n ?

I figured I was from a different time frame, not much but different. We called our old cow "Bossy" because if you were not careful she would kick you off the stool or knock over that precious milk bucket. LOL We also raised frying chickens but ate them fresh due to no electric and dad even sold some at his work for extra money. We never had a phone either until about time I graduated from High School and they moved into town and even had a TV. lol Most town kids wanted to be out running around. But since TV was so new for us, I was content to stay home and watch Gunsmoke and Ed Sullivan with Topo Gigo. LOL
