Up and up and up some more

BidenFlation, let’s call it.

Okay, I’m gonna go way out on a limb here and suggest that this CAN’T be a sign of anything good.

All this, mind, in only one (1) year. Actually, less, since the drooling moron and his Shadowman handlers only usurped power a few short months ago.

Gasoline (87 octane, 10-15% ethanol) in upstate NY is up 40% since the pretender was treasoned into office. Maybe a bit over 40%, as I haven’t gone out in a few days* and it had been going up in small jumps every two or three days.

Food — store brands, mostly, except for Kellogg’s PopTarts, which the girls** prefer — continues its creep up. I can still save a good amount on meat by keeping an eye out for sales and loss leaders and by keeping some room in the chest freezer, but even the sale prices are up 10-20% since the start of the dempanic. I seem to have lost the cash register tapes I’d been keeping (or else my wife “helped” me by cleaning my office) so I can’t do an item-by-item comparison, but prices are up much more than the 5-10% claimed. I’d estimate 5% in the past five months, but that’s affected by the rollover from Winter to Summer, international exchange rates, and I don’t know what else, and I don’t have a good enough feel to estimate what I’ll be paying next January.

Property taxes are up by means of a jump in the assessed value. I’ve heard that the schools need a lot more money to deal with the hardships of the past year, which is good for sick laughter considering that the public schools did approximately no teaching for the past one-and-a-half school years. I don’t know if the claim is anything more than a plausible rumor because I haven’t found anything from the school board concerning budget and the school district’s web site has nothing. The school district offices are closed to the public and they don’t answer their phones or return calls, so as far as I can tell the entire public school district is doing nothing but collecting money.

Electric and natural gas prices are up but only slightly. They’re regulated and tend to go up in large, infrequent jumps, so that doesn’t mean much.

* As Ironbear and I have joked, you know you’re a recluse when there’s a lockdown and your life hardly changes. If not for family things, I’d probably leave the yard about twice a month, mostly for groceries.

** Mine and one of her friends whom we’re taking care of for the Summer.

Notable Quotes

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved." - Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil." - Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork." - David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in." - Bill Whittle
