Of course I have. So have you. We all have, for the last 2 years.
My bills didn't go up other than gasoline. Depression we will have little to nothing on the shelves at the store. Anything there will be very-very high. All the Walmart branded stuff in the store like coffee, lunch meats etc was gone. Dairy case was very empty. Still lots of toilet paper, and paper towels.

That might be in your area. Not here. Alot of that has to do with whoever is doing the ordering for the stores.

Probably the check out. Probably most of it is all automated.

Real world 20%+ inflation, world-wide economic contraction (aka "negative growth") for around 2 years, massive supply chain failures, and inability for front-end producers to make products and even product precursors is now endemic.

Dude, just because you and I are doing well, doesn't mean it's not a depression.

No, no, no. It's just been a string of mini-recessions. Because now instead of it being 4 consecutive months or 2 consecutive quarters, it needs to be 2 consecutive presidential terms...
Don't like the results change how they are calculated! Something our government is well known for! Like how the way inflation is calculated. It changed in 1980 and 1990... and using the oldest method we are around 17% vs governments claimed 8%


Shadow stats shows other data using older calculation methods, unemployment is a bog one. They no longer include long term discouraged unemployed workers

We no longer have the bread lines, government just loads money on a debit card you go spend in a store to get food. Government pays electric and gas bills for the poor, government pays housing(section 8)... it is all done in a way that makes it not in the public eye...

You and I have never lived through a depression. We will sooner than we expect.
Finally. Something better than the Blizzard of 78 to throw in children's faces when they're acting all entitled and shit, Don't know about you but, I'm willing to ride it out as long as they bring back Gubmint Cheese.

Out on bivouac we ate C rations. There was a a small can that came with the hard tack crackers. It was cheese food. Kind of like cheese pudding. Some guys dropped a can in the fire. A guy was standing by the fire when it exploded. He became known as "Cheesy Martinez" from that day forward.

Klaus,Soros, Rothschild's,Rockefeller's,Bildeburgs.... the list goes on. Every politician,world leader etc is beholding and owned. $$$$$ SPEAKS. Items? Everything you purchase.
Don't worry though. A cashless society is in the future. Everything (items) you own etc will be known. The banks will cash you out and negate your $$$$. Look at what 'paypal etc does when ya don't toe their line. Accounts canceled.......no warning.

My mom was working dispatch at a trucking company when I was little. They did a lot of chese shipping from the Kraft plant in town, including boxes of gov cheese. If a box was dropped and broke open it was paid for by the trucking company as a shipping loss. Cheese bricks inside were usually still just fine so the trucking company employees took them home. Ate a LOT of that stuff! Made awesome grilled cheese sandwiches!

Kinda like here. All the Walmarts are still trying to recover from Ian coming through. Sadly the walmart distribution center down the road had NO generators, so refrigerated and frozen stuff went bad and they’re playing hell getting it up and running. So prices are up at least 20% (and riding).
