Hey idiot, this has been going on for decades. Or have you been buying your bags of potato chips for the air content, believing you are getting more for your money over the years, since the quantity of chips has decreased and the amount of air has increased? (chips is just one example out of thousands of products that have been doing this). This has nothing to do with current events or inflation. It is normal business practice to keep prices in line with what the Market can bare. It's also done to manipulate nutritional values that have to be printed on the labels to fool people into believing something is better for you than it actually is.
My 59oz OJ agrees with you. Hell simply orange I think had taken down to 54...

Dude. There was no shrinkflation before Obama! And Trump stopped it with his tariffs!

Eggs ($1/large dozen) and chickens (legs/thighs - $1/lb.) are still about the same pre Covid. Pork is a bit higher ($1.30/lb now. vs. $1/lb. pre Covid). Don't let me start with beef.

Prices at fast food places are all higher now. More cooking at home, healthier for your health and wallet.

Inflation? What? Heck no. None. Are you crazy to even ask such questions?
Damn. Took you days to come up with that? Source material dried up or something? Not getting your feeds from OAN/Newsmax/Fox/FB any longer? Sucks when that happens....when you're gone. Nice striped tan you've got, though.

I am going to be Frank with you, Vic.

I honestly PRAY that we get this inflation beast under control. I do not wish to see $8 per gallon gas any time soon. Perhaps you should have told your friend that the Saudis have determined they will release more supply into the market which will hopefully cause a FALL in oil and corresponding decrease in gasoline prices of about 25 to 50 cents per gallon.
Pray all you want. about anything.

it's fucking useless.

I'm not sure Kamala will win. But she will be endorsed by Biden.

I think Greg Abbott will win the election.
with any luck, Abbott will soon succumb to an Elvis-sized bowel obstruction, saving the rest of humanity from his fucking monstrosity.

seriously: fuck that horrible piece of shit.

If Gregg was pro Inflation would you vote for him? You gotta admit he's got mad governance skills.

He did have several hundred of his constituents freeze to death because of mass government incompetence and inability to fix a problem they had a decade of warning on. Then he lied to his constituents about the nature of the problem, making it more likely to happen again.

I would call that poor governance skills. What would you call it?

This after how many pages of discussion you didn’t read?

If you really want to say nothing, there’s a far more efficient way. Instead of using words to say nothing, try using no words to say nothing instead.
