OK...I don't rant often (this is the first time actually) but I am seriously pissed at that comment I heard on the radio yesterday.
I spent a great deal of time searching online to find a source for this comment but haven't found anything to support it.
In my line of work, I drive on the road a lot and listen to the radio. Music lover but they do give news once in a while. So after vomiting the bad
news of the day, this announcer finally shouts HEY ! GREAT NEWS ! FOOD INFLATION TO TOP AT 2% IN 2012 !!!
What a crock of [SNIP] !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even in good times, forget the recession, we never had a 2% ceiling! Where the hell does that number come from??
Where the hell does this jerk buy his groceries???
I would have put this thread in BAN if there was a source and scream my lungs out at PROPAGANDA !!!
Main Stream Media at its best! But what is behind this message for the common listener?
= No need to stock up, prices will only lightly increase.
= You run after specials and coupons? what a waste of time.
= Spend for Xmas...you'll still be able to eat after anyway.
= YOU ARE BEING CARED FOR. WE UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE LESS MONEY. WE ARE HELPING YOU OUT.
Lies, lies, lies and more lies. It makes me sick !!
Meaning. A loaf of bread that is currently $3.39 will top at $3.46. Milk, a liter will top at $1.89. For every one hundred dollars you spend now, you
will be spending $102.00 in 2012. REALLY?????
This is so outrageous...there are no words...
Too bad I can't remember what station I heard this from. I would call in and ask for sources. Dammit.
Anyone else heard this? Opinions?
Am I just over reacting here or am I right to be furious??
Yeah. Great News !!
