Brandon Economy: Expect Thanksgiving Prices To Wallop Your Wallet

The economic hits just keep coming and coming

This Year’s Thanksgiving Feast Will Wallop the Wallet

Biden Brain SuckerThanksgiving 2021 could be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday.

Caroline Hoffman is already stashing canned pumpkin in the kitchen of her Chicago apartment when she finds some for under a dollar. She recently spent almost $2 more for the vanilla she’ll need to bake pumpkin bread and other desserts for the various Friendsgiving celebrations she’s been invited to.

Matthew McClure paid 20% more this month than he did last year for the 25 pasture-raised turkeys he plans to roast at the Hive, the Bentonville, Arkansas, restaurant where he is the executive chef. And Norman Brown, director of sweet-potato sales for Wada Farms in Raleigh, North Carolina (I’ve never heard of Wada Farms, had to look it up), is paying truckers nearly twice as much as usual to haul the crop to other parts of the country.

Nearly every component of the traditional American Thanksgiving dinner, from the disposable aluminum turkey roasting pan to the coffee and pie, will cost more this year, according to agricultural economists, farmers and grocery executives. Major food companies like Nestlé and Procter & Gamble have already warned consumers to brace for more price increases.

There is no single culprit. The nation’s food supply has been battered by a knotted supply chain, high transportation expenses, labor shortages, trade policies and bad weather. Inflation is at play, too. In September, the Consumer Price Index for food was up 4.6% from a year ago. Prices for meat, poultry, fish and eggs soared 10.5%.

This Brandon economy is going great, eh? Y’all who were mad over mean tweets so voted against Trump made a wonderful decision, so, don’t complain. And, of course, the article fails to put any Blame on Biden and his administration, when you just know they would find ways to Blame Trump. How much responsibility does Biden bear? His administration has been mostly absent on all things supply chain, and finding ways to make sure prices rise and shortages occur. There has been almost a complete lack of interest in the economy, and, you might say “well, the government should stay out of it.” And you’d be correct. Unfortunately, the federal government has involved itself so much in the economy that policy can cause price fluctuation.

And, let’s not forget the old maxim of “It’s the economy, stupid.” Regardless of the ability of the president and the federal government to make anything happen, the President will get the blame. They blamed Trump for the economic woes in the middle of a world-wide pandemic (but, they wouldn’t blame China), despite Trump actively working to keep the economy going and wanting it open.

So, yeah, Biden gets big blame.

    This is a deliberate attack by the progressive left and not Biden. Biden is not in control of the White House or the country. He would never endorse most of this BS coming in the form of regulations.

    Progressives want to see non-progressives defeated in the mid-terms. This is their way of completing the total radicalization of the left. Already, 13 liberals, IE non-progressives are resigning and many more that attempt to run will be defeated.

    They have said they will primary Sinema in AZ for her actions. Many think she will switch to the GOP and I have said the same but after thinking about it she is too much of a liberal to ever become a GOP’er. She will cave or be defeated. Manchin is in a deep red state and therefore any attempt at primarying him would result in a loss of that seat.

    In general, the supply shortages are put at the hands of the people. The people are to blame for being locked down for nearly 2 years and now wanting to buy stuff. The people are at fault as demand soars through the roof. Imagine not drinking water for 3 days and then being told. Sorry, no water for you it’s in short supply. People are going to rebel. You will see that in several governors’ races that the left will most certainly have to figure out ways to cheat to hold those seats.

    Five Democrats are in real trouble and in a couple more weeks we could see 36 states with GOP Governors. The left is losing, it is just a long battle in a long war that has been raging without the GOP having a clue until COVID.

    Covid-19 was the wake up call to the right. And the world.

      The Senate seats currently held by Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema do not come up for election again until 2024.

      Nope. According to the USDA, total at home food prices have risen 2.5% – 3.5% with higher prices coming. The USDA notes that the increase may be 1.5% – 2.5% in the coming months.

      In socialist Denmark workers are paid $22 and bigmacs are cheaper

      Two nopes on this one.

      “I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism. Therefore I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy,” [Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke] Rasmussen said.

      According to the Big Mac index, the average Big Mac in the US is $4.80. In Denmark, it is $5.15.

      The left hates actual facts and doing research.

      Then again, all the left has is hate.

    Almost everyone received a tax cut, fool, as you know.

    The biggest reason for the increase turkey cost is that far fewer turkeys are being raised fkr zthsnjxgiving
    More people are eating ham or prime rib or seafood

    Fie on thee!

    My great (x10) grandfather, Richard Warren, was one of the Pilgrims, and everyone here is required to have turkey for Thanksgiving in his, and my, honor!
