Listen DUers and you will hear

of a tale of inflation, told in 2 pictures, from 1965. I found these old newspaper ads for supermarkets, and can you believe these prices? Before guns and butter economy of the Vietnam War (Johnson and Nixon), before going off the gold standard (Nixon), before OPEC, before the stimulative policies of Arthur Burns (Nixon and Ford), before the inflation all that caused, before stock market bubbles, Tech wreck, Housing bubble, QE 1,2,3, and now the Idiot in the White House stimulating a full employment economy!!
We are going to get our currency liquidated!

Look at these prices!

1. Most things now cost ten times as much including gas

Aren't Social Security and welfare programs still calculate on these prices? Just goes to show how badly we are getting screwed.
