10. We knew this would be the result
When they started diddling around with what commodities were included in the figures...
They included things that have decreased on the average (like long distance phone calls) and removed things, essential ones, like food and energy that have gone up... and that we have to keep buying in order to function...

How the hell did they get away with that, anyway?
