    It's not just the prices of meat, etc. I'm just so appalled at the bald faced thuggery that is my government. It's like some perverted Robin Hood stealing from the working class to give to the corporations. sigh...

    I hear ya. I'm looking at a 2 year wage freeze because I work public sector, and the gov't needs money to pay back the bail out loans they gave private sector. Even though I'm paid less for my job than private sector. The next few years are going to be very tough, way more so than during the "recession". Even if we strike, the gov't has stated they will just legislate us back to work.

    I'm already pretty creative at making ends meet, but with the price of everything going up so fast, it's going to get really tight.

    Democrat = Republican = Tea Party = Whore. All are bought. You and I are the fall out. If you really think any "party" in this country gives a crap about you and me (the taxpayer), I suggest you search the definition of "cognitive disonance."

    Peace, baby.

    That's interesting. We're planning on moving to Ecuador (most likely) in the next couple of years, although I've been looking at Uruguay as well. I was hoping that there would be a source of pastured meats although I have a feeling that I could probably find small farmers who aren't necessarily doing the eco thing but rather that's just how they raise their animals.
