It really is starting hit in American cities that the food bins or free give-a-way food for the needy is at a all time low. The cost of food now is not cheap according to the wage that the low/high income worker makes.
Ex. here in this country 2 peaches cost 6 USD, yep you read it right. A watermelon will set you back 29 bucks. These prices are no different in America based on a worker making low wages. Just can't afford to basically get by.
I think with all the migration of rich people coming to America brought their greed with them. What do you guys think?

You can get strawberries for free here but you have to pick the needles out.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are not expensive. It is garbage like you find in the cereal aisle or other processed, sugar added crap foods that are expensive. I don't spend that much for groceries.

Yesterday I got 2 nice watermelons for 69 cents a Lb.

Try local supermarkets in low income people towns. All is cheaper.

Don’t you live in japan? Why are you telling us what our food cost when you don’t even live here in the states? I just got a watermelon for four dollars. Peaches for about $.80 each. But you know what? They grow these things right here. Not much agricultural land in Japan is there? Perhaps your observations Only count for there. You know like where your eyes are.

The giveaway was someone saying that something in America costs ___ USD.

If you live here, you use the $ sign or say dollars.

The OP is BS.

Although my peaches cost $49 for the tree 9 years ago, so I got 90 pounds or so this year for the price of picking.

Watermelons I can't really grow too big, but the last one I bought was .49 cents a pound.

And when did rich people start immigrating to America?

Do you just make up random numbers to try to see if anyone buys your bull?

I do love me some pages. I’m thinking of planting some fruit trees next spring. My watermelons get huge here in Tennessee.


As far as wealthy people from many countries moving here to the states, I can confirm that. In fact it might be the only true statement in the OP.

Mmmmm...... no!

Don't know where you're getting your info, but you are WAY off on those prices. I buy fruit nearly every time I go to the grocery store so I'm confident about that.
