that's pretty sucky
The price of just about everything food oriented has gone up significantly in the past year. Everytime I go food shopping anymore I'm like WTF? I spoke to the guy that owns a local pizza shop the other day that I frequent a couple times a month and noticed he had just recently raised his prices, the guy told me his price of cheese fucking tripled in the last 6 months and meat is up 60% also and that he couldn't afford to absorb the cost increase and had to pass it along.
It doesn't look like it's going to get any better any time soon, either.
Oil prices affect fertilizer, machinery for working the land, and moving the product.
Then the stupid ethanol craze makes the land and resources used for corn that doesn't get sold to cattle farmers.
And lately growers can't hire a decent cheap wetback any more for fear of getting fined, so labor costs are going up.
It sucks, and it's here for a while.
This sucks, but I guess there's not a whole lot we can do about it.
Not like it's a tax or something.
and the dollar being in the crapper don't help
I was thinking about growing my own weed, guess i'll have to grow hops now too. anyone wanna go halfsies on some farmland:icon_mrgr
I can't think of why it would hurt.
Domestic sales shouldn't care what the dollar is worth outside the country, and the stuff we export is bringing in the same dollars it always did. the buyers are just getting a better deal.
I could easily be missing something obvious, though. I really don't know shit about global economics.
did you know?
that hopps and cannibis are in the same family
as for the beer prices going up i will gladly pay more for a craft brew than drink swill
This is an outrage. Rabble rabble rabble!! Rabble rabble!!!!
:clap::clap::clap: halfsies on farmland ...lol
its the lack of bees maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.....
A fucking loaf of Strohmans potato bread is over 3$
Milk is hovering around 4$.
Fucking chop meat is over 3$ a pound.
And I just got the best raise in ten years. A whole fucking 10% OVER THREE FUCKING YEARS. Doomed.
I was buying some microbrews last night and several were around $8-9 for a six pack. That's very unusual here in NC. Usually you can buy a domestic six pack for about $5 and a micro for $6-7. So prices went up about 25% in just a few weeks.
That sucks balls.
Rubbing alcohol is still sitting at $1.50 a pint. A guy's gotta have options.
Fuck, there goes my 401K.
