Inflation rate: real numbers, unadjusted, no lies?

Does anyone know of any website that tracks the current Inflation rate?

I know that since the DOL stopped publishing the unadjusted unemployment numbers [in March 2009], there is a shadow stats website that still posts the real numbers around 24% [one percent below the Great Depression peak].

But now that Pres.Hussein has pulled the price of food and the price of fuel out of the formula the government uses for calculating it's inflation rate, we no longer have the real numbers.

I heard a radio talk show today discussing how the sizes of processed foods has been shrinking: baked beans were 14 oz cans now 10.5 oz cans, ....

Smaller cans for the same price, means a higher price per unit.

When my wife got home I asked her [she works in a grocery store]. A 2-pound coffee can of coffee is now only 24 oz. A 'troy' pound instead of a 'Imperial' pound of 32 oz.

All food prices have been climbing.

The only way to know what the inflation rate is, would be for someone to be tracking it.

Anyone?

I don't know of any one site that has all the numbers,,, and many have only what they think they are seeing..

personally, with the fed making their little speech this week (fed reserve) and that being the first time in something like 97 years... we are in serious trouble.

Today, we closed all bank accounts for the time being, and all employees are going to be paid cash (straight up), paid off all bills and debts and dependent upon what happens after their little speech, will depend upon whether we head right into the pre wyermar hyper inflation.

I think we are right at he tipping point right now... and i do not think there is anything that is going to stop it...

No one is coming right out and giving the actual figures because it would likely cause the sheeple to wig out.

Anyone that actually pays attention to what they buy, how much it costs now, and how much it was two years ago should actually be quite alarmed.

Goes to show how far most folks have their heads up their butts. Its right in front of them and so few pay any damn attention.

food items have gone up since last year. This is a report from Nove last year...and it is worse now.

NIA Projects Future U.S. Food Price Increases

The National Inflation Association today announced the release of its report about NIA's projections of future U.S. food price increases due to the massive monetary inflation being created by the Federal Reserve's $600 billion quantitative easing. This report was written by NIA's President Gerard Adams, who believes food inflation will take over in 2011 as America's greatest crisis. According to Mr. Adams, making mortgage payments will soon be the last thing on the minds of all Americans. We currently have a currency crisis that could soon turn into hyperinflation and a complete societal collapse.

"For every economic problem the U.S. government tries to solve, it always creates two or three much larger catastrophes in the process," said Adams. "Just like we predicted this past December, the U.S. dollar index bounced in early 2010 and has been in free-fall ever since. Bernanke's QE2 will likely accelerate this free-fall into a complete U.S. dollar rout," warned Adams.

NIA projects that at the average U.S. grocery store it will soon cost $11.43 for one ear of corn, $23.05 for a 24 oz loaf of wheat bread, $62.21 for a 32 oz package of Domino Granulated Sugar, $24.31 for a 32 fl oz container of soy milk, $77.71 for a 11.30 oz container of Folgers Classic Roast Coffee, $45.71 for a 64 fl oz container of Minute Maid Orange Juice, and $15.50 for a Hershey's Milk Chocolate 1.55 oz candy bar. NIA also projects that by the end of this decade, a plain white men's cotton t-shirt at Wal-Mart will cost $55.57.

NIA's special U.S. food price projection report is now available to download for free by clicking here. http://inflation.us/foodpriceprojections.pdf

The report highlights how despite cotton rising by 54%, corn rising by 29%, soybeans rising by 22%, orange juice rising by 17%, and sugar rising by 51% during the months of September and October alone, these huge commodity price increases have yet to make their way into America's grocery stores because corporations have been reluctant to pass these price increases along to the consumer. In today's dismal economy, no retailer wants to be the first to dramatically raise food prices. However, NIA expects all retailers to soon substantially raise food prices at the same time, which will ensure that this Holiday shopping season will be the worst in recorded American history.

It isn't just food thats going up, EVERYTHING is on the rise. Food is getting alot of attention, as it should, its more important than say new bikes or playstations after all.

I don't think many people actually realize just how much the price of oil affects damn near everything else in our economy.
