Lettuce: $2.98 A Head – No Inflation?

Lettuce: $2.98 A Head – No Inflation?

April 1, 2019

No, this is not an April Fool’s Day joke. While all the buffoonery from the Hollywood trash and screeching by politicians in the Democratic/Communist Party USA continue over Mueller’s report, Americans continue trying to keep a roof over their head, food on the table and pay for other basic necessities.

I recently did two columns on what is being ignored: The national debt and the last sickening budget deal.

A few others are warning:

Consider these updates as you read and hear the economy is booming:

Retail apocalypse? JCPenney, Payless, LifeWay announce 3,000+ combined store closures, March 29, 2019: “More than 41,000 people have lost their jobs in the retail industry so far this year — a 92 percent spike in layoffs since the same time last year, according to a new report.

“And the layoffs continue to mount, with JCPenney announcing this week it would be closing 18 stores in addition to three previously announced closures, as part of a “standard annual review.”

It’s not all about Amazon. When people don’t have extra money they don’t buy – especially when you become unemployed.

More foreign workers while laid off Americans who need any job to pay the rent and eat will go without:

DHS Nielsen OK’s Visas for 30,000 Extra H-2B Workers, March 29, 2019:

“DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen will allow the importation of 30,000 extra foreign laborers for landscapers, resorts, and other businesses despite President Donald Trump’s “Hire American” promise that has helped raise blue-collar wages by four percent in 2018.

“The decision will allow companies to import 96,000 H-2B laborers in 2019, up from the 66,000 allowed by the law.”

The horrific flooding last month in Iowa, Nebraska and surrounding states is going to have severe repercussions for our treasured farming and ranching families. Up to one million calves drowned and more than a million aces flooded. How heartbreaking that is for ranchers to find a way to bury all those calves and dead livestock.

Nebraska Flooding Broke 17 Records – Farmers Being Absolutely Devastated, March 18, 2019

I can’t even think about the thousands of doggies, cats and other animals that drowned. It goes without saying the human misery is off the charts. Our fellow Americans affected will be fighting for survival for a long time to come. Sadly, we are likely to see more of this:

Farmers Facing Higher Suicide Rate

If you think the cost of food has been going up, we will see even steeper prices due to all the flooding. Farmers and ranchers will have no choice if they are to survive.

I must repeat myself here: America became the greatest debt free nation on this earth because of our manufacturing, industrial and agricultural sectors. The U.S. Congress has destroyed them over the decades along with the unconstitutional, privately owned ‘Federal’ Reserve.

The American people kept reelecting the same SOBs who destroyed their job sectors. They continue to do so and worse by allegedly electing enough Democrats (socialists and communists) to control the U.S. House. Not that incumbent Republicans are much better as we slide down the slick path to financial ruin. Again.

Nowhere in Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution does it authorize Congress to regulate or control our agriculture. Period. The Agricultural Act of 1938 began the unconstitutional interference by the U.S. Congress kissed and blessed by both parties. Paired up with the ‘Fed’ ever since and what we have is a disaster for farmers and ranchers passed along to us.

From regulations choking our farmers and ranchers to death (as well as our fishing families), destructive agreements (NAFTA) and treaties, it’s a wonder any have survived. Every year House and Senate incumbents honk about how much money they are going to spend for some new farming bill. Just more Band Aids instead of sewing up the patient once and for all.

Obama-era rules jeopardize California farming – ‘If this unprecedented prosecution succeeds, it threatens nearly every farm in the U.S.’

It’s not just federal dragoons, it’s also local governments. I can tell you right now those who founded this constitutional republic wouldn’t have stood for this tyranny for five minutes.

“Tell them (the South Carolinians who wanted to nullify the Tariff Act of 1832) that I will hang the first man of them I can get my hands on to the first tree I can find.” —President Andy Jackson

Greenest US county sues man for growing too many organic veggies

SWAT Team Raids Texas Organic Farm, Holds Residents At Gunpoint

Before the flooding I was paying $2.50 for a head of organic lettuce; a few days ago it bumped to $2.98 a head. That’s an increase of $.48 for just one item in my cart. Even lettuce grown in Mexico was running nearly $2.00 a head. I have not purchased ONE vegetable or piece of fruit from Mexico, Chile, Guatemala, Honduras or any other foreign country since NAFTA was signed into “law” in 1994. I support American farmers or I GO WITHOUT and I DO.

No way will I eat anything coming from those countries who do NOT have the same safeguards as our farmers are required to have for crops. In Mexico they grow fruits and vegetables near factories that dump their filthy water into canals for irrigation.

I don’t know about other South American countries but Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have been deliberate facilitators of the human invasion of diseased free loaders flooding our borders. They don’t get my money.

The bottom line is it’s going to get a lot worse and Trump is going to be blamed. Bad new trade treaties and the ‘Fed’ coupled with the national debt (smaller government is nothing more than a campaign slogan) IS going to kill us. Again, I say, proceed with caution.

I have written before about the Fed & The Farmer. Deliberate destruction of that sector. Bring in the big mega corporations to feed you filthy, hormone packed animals and vegetables grown with deadly pesticides.

The Fed is the head of the beast

“The greatest party battle centered around the Second Bank of the United States, a private corporation but virtually a Government-sponsored monopoly. When Jackson appeared hostile toward it, the Bank threw its power against him. Clay and Webster, who had acted as attorneys for the Bank, led the fight for its recharter in Congress. “The bank,” Jackson told Martin Van Buren, “is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!” Jackson, in vetoing the recharter bill, charged the Bank with undue economic privilege. His views won approval from the American electorate; in 1832 he polled more than 56 percent of the popular vote and almost five times as many electoral votes as Clay.

“Jackson met head-on the challenge of John C. Calhoun, leader of forces trying to rid themselves of a high protective tariff.

“When South Carolina undertook to nullify the tariff, Jackson ordered armed forces to Charleston and privately threatened to hang Calhoun. Violence seemed imminent until Clay negotiated a compromise: tariffs were lowered and South Carolina dropped nullification.” President Andrew Jackson; Whitehouse.gov
