The Business of Changing Times,,,,,


,,,OK, like it or not, whichever side of the political fence you currently throw your schitt across, the simple fact is the Business of Doing Business is about to change. For better or worse remains to be seen I suppose.

The point of this thread is to document current prices for things (goods and services) that are important to your business, but more importantly current prices as they relate directly to you and your family.

Please, no attacking Trump or Biden. Lets just put the facts here and let them lie where they fall so as to look back later and see what we didn't see.


OK, Ill start.

Gas where I live and buy it is just under $2.00 a gallon.

I have Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance thru the State of North Carolina (my wife is a teacher) and I pay $540 a month for pretty good insurance.

A case of Bud heavy is $17 at Walmart and closer to $20 at Publix

I had my teeth cleaned last week (no insurance) cost me $117

Lean ground beef at Publix is $3.79 a pound

Shrimp/ Frozen 31/35's at $5.99 a pound

The Dow Jones hit 30,400 just the other day

My overall financial portfolio went up (just a thumbnail) a little over 25%

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Try and not fukkk it up

OK, whos next?

I can't tell you the last time I bought ground beef. The only red meat we eat is venison now, with an occasional T-bone here or there. I'll add in what I know:

Venison basic processing from my guy (no fun stuff)-$75
European mount with wall plaque-$125
Full shoulder mount-$550
Summer sausage $7
Jalapeno and cheese snack sticks-$7
Whole cooked venison ham-$25
Jalapeno and cheese venison little smokies-priceless

Pot roast went from $15 to $35 for 4 peeps.
I buy all my food from Sams...in bulk to distribute to my family. Bag of shredded divided to zip bags for 4 comes out cheaper for all. My choice to help out my children(adults) ...they gonna need it.

I worked through the interest rates of 21% with President Carter...forced me into another profession. Our children will be facing much worse...I fear.

My wife gave our 2 adult children a Dave Ramsey book. My daughter was hilarious quoting me all I'd taught her...buying used cars...used washing machine/dryer...

Interest rates HAVE to go up or what we are experiencing in inflated prices will only increase.

The Banks will love it. The Fed sunshine laws are were supposed to be halted the 31st of Dec...I've seen nothing as of yet(not really looking considering the atmosphere) but :

I killed a lot of pigs. Never cured any meat. I find it hard to kill a pig since I raised one. I gots to work on this.



Think of the destruction of ETFs/401ks from tech losses today...who shorted...have credit default swaps?????
