Austin Texas is a very expensive city to live in, which is often the case with MOST LEFTIST CITIES, so, Anne and I expected to pay higher prices for most things while there . . . such as food – and were not surprised when we did.
But, we never expected to pay so much more for products, ESPECIALLY FOOD, in the North East of New York State, where there is not much wealth
Anne and I went grocery shopping on Thursday (April 23rd) in Massena New York, where we haven’t been for more than 6-months, while we were in Texas.
We were told that border towns across America, much like Massena NY, were having tough times . . . but that is sort of an understatement.
What we found in Massena, which was always a favorite shopping destination for Canadians, were shutdown stores . . . stores that looked to be on the verge of being shutdown, AND A SERIOUS LACK OF SHOPPERS.
Anne and I always enjoyed purchasing various types of cheese, milk, eggs and some other food products that weren’t necessarily available in Canada, or were priced significantly higher on the Northern Side of the Border.
What we found, were fewer products on the shelves, and MUCH HIGHER PRICES per product. Meat for example . . . especially once taking the Canadian exchange rate of nearly 30% into consideration, was more expensive in Massena, than it was just across the Border to the North . . . and the Massena quality wasn’t as good.
THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS REALITY . . . it doesn’t matter if Obama is telling everyone who wants to listen that the economy has turned around, or there is growth in employment . . . BECAUSE THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS THE TRUTH.
When you see retail stores, especially name brands closing, or cutting back so close to the bone that for all intents and purposes, they might as well be closed . . . THAT’S WHAT MATTERS.
When you shop at a good quality grocery store like PRICE CHOPPERS in Massena NY, and see that the shelves are not as well stocked as they were 6–months ago, and a steak that now costs $13 per pound, instead of $9 a pound, which I paid 6-months earlier at the same meat counter, for not as good a cut of meat now, as it was then . . . THAT’S WHAT MATTERS.
The government is DEVOURING MONEY at such an unbelievable a rate . . . that it can’t print nearly enough to keep up. And as the government CREATES MORE AND MORE “MONEY” BY FIAT, the value and buying-power of each dollar collapses. Which brings us to escalating prices (inflation).
And then there is the ever-growing mountain of regulations and taxes.
It doesn’t matter how the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ is doing, since the vast majority of struggling individuals and families barely have enough money to make it from month to month, let alone invest in the CASINOS on Wall Street or Bay Street (Canada).
WHAT REALLY MATTERS . . . is how much the COST OF FOOD GOES UP, since that is the ONLY measure most people care about, since unlike the Stock Markets, it’s the only measure that is truly REAL.
I’ve written for quite a while, that I don’t think Hilary Clinton would be the Candidate for the Democratic Party. I’m surprised she made it this far. And I still have serious doubts.
BEFORE GOING ON . . . it must be made absolutely clear, that the VAST MAJORITY of voters, especially on the LEFT, have no idea what and whom they are voting for, and will not take the time, nor make the effort to understand the issues and the truth.
So . . . in just a few words – THEY ARE STUPID, and will vote for a Liberal no matter what, and will vote for Hillary Clinton regardless of how DISHONEST, and HOW FAR REMOVED she REALLY is from the people who claim to love her.
IN THE COMPARISON I created in the preceding – THERE IS HYPE . . . AND THERE IS TRUTH. Hillary Clinton is all about the HYPE . . . while the REAL WORLD is all about the TRUTH.
And make no mistake about it . . .
Just as the people can see how REAL the cost of putting food on the table has become in Massena NY, more than enough people will see just what the Clinton’s are all about.
And if the Clinton’s think they can run away or hide from their truth . . . I’VE GOT NEWS FOR THEM . . . THEIR NIGHTMARE HASN’T EVEN BEGUN.
CLOSING NOTE . . . Don’t listen to what the politicians and pundits have to say, since they all live in their own little bubbles . . . INSTEAD – LISTEN TO WHAT YOUR BUTCHER HAS TO SAY . . . AND YOU’LL KNOW THE TRUTH.
