What will food cost in 4 years?
Big-time inflation is headed for the grocery aisles, and whatever your diet, you'll feel the hit. Compare the prices of common foods today with what they're likely to cost in 2015.

Get a new government. Get rid of the corrupt liberals and repubs. Lets vote them all out and start from scratch. Try to get someone that that gives a **** about the people and this country and not just their bank accounts. This is all it is. Walls street and the other fat pigs playing monopoly with us the people. Lets put a stop to it. We cant afford anymore higher gas prices or food prices. We have a right to eat as good as the rich guys. we have a right to drive our cars without worrying about fuel prices. We let this go it will only get worse. To hell with these wall street thugs and this fat pig government. I for one had enough.
People were never so happy as when they lived a more agrarian life style. It was slightly harder physical work, but way less stress. My great grandmother told me that, and I believe her. Really with todays technology, we could be living a lot happier, easier lives than we are now, or they did back then. There was also much less poverty and homelessness back then. People would homestead, raise their own, etc.. Not live under a bridge and panhandle..
Our modern society will be the death of us, and its not going to take long either. We are all now at the mercy of conglomorates who decide what we pay, and what we get.
Maybe we should stop feeding the rest of the world and let them feed themselves. If our own countrymen are having a problem buying food because global demand makes the cost unaffordable, then let the rest of the world worry about how to pay for American grown food; not Americans. The rest of the world expects and demands that America feed them, protect them, fight their battles, provide their medicine, and come to their aid when disaster strikes. And then they have the audacity to call us the world's Satan.
I say American for Americans first. Let the rest of the world eat our scraps or learn to feed themselves.
Americans provide so much charity and subsidy to the rest of the world that it's hard to believe that there is still hunger. Instead our charity is used to enrich corrupt governments If the rest of the world gets hungry, let them overthrow their corrupt governments that are starving them. Why should we support their corrupt governments when we have our own.
And are we really subsidizing ethanol from corn? What a waste. Here we are wasting a major crop that is a major component to so much of our agricultural and food manufacturing industries on some tree huggers fantasy. No wonder meat, bread, and dairy products have increased so much in the last few years.
The ideas here about growing your own food are great.....BUT, if you are a family struggling with unemployement, living in an apt. This is not an option. For a lot of us out there, We dont have the storage for large amounts of bulk. We need to start embracing the small town farmers again, pure and simple. Less packaging, closer to home should mean lower prices. But only if we do it en masse.
I just know that I already have very little discretionary money and between the inflation in gas and food, I will have none. Heaven help my family if we have an emergency. Im not sure what we will do.
The gouging needs to stop.
Due to husbands health problems (i strongly suggest colonoscopy, saved his life) i have totally changed the way i prepare food (reducing salt , increasing fiber). I make most things from scratch. It takes more time but if you buy bulk brown rice, large bags of potatoes, frozen veggies and fruits (as well as fresh) it actually is much cheaper. Meat for us is a flavoring , not a main course. Lots of chicken but still some beef and pork. If you go this route i suggest a slow cooker and learn a lot of recipes for stews, soups and chowders. I cut everything up the night before and put it in the fridge. The next morning i put it in the slow cooker, and water and seasoning and set it on low...when i get home i have most of my meal ready to serve
YOU CAN EAT HEALTHY AND SAVE MONEY BY AVOIDING PROCESSED AND PRE-PREPARED FOOD
My meals will have to change to beans and rice. I live on a fixed income and so I will have less to eat is all.
What's wrong with this picture, the Mayor of Bowling Green, KY is paid $16,000.00 a year, the Mayor of Knoxville, TN is paid $153,000.00 a year, and he only shows up to 1 out of 4 meetings?
Benjamin Franklin said, "Politicians should never be paid"
We need to start buying from farm/small shops locals food....instead of Safeway, Albertsons, and so on!! Look at the price difference !!!
It's CORPORATIONS vs PEOPLE of America
Don't look outside of America.....It's happening HERE in this soil, THIS IS WHERE IT STARTS .. where corporate Greed and everything else happens!!
