Economic Education

Price of food is going up ... But I do not believe the figures that have been released

Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people
Up $0.37

Price includes:
bread stuffing
sweet potatoes
Rolls with butter
carrots and celery
pumpkin pie with whipped cream
coffee and milk


We just purchased our turkeys for next week

On sale at cub they were $.89 a pound

We bought three turkeys

One 20 pound bird
Two 12 pound birds

We like to smoke ... The birds, not cigarettes .... not the wacky tobacci either

That alone is a jumped $.30 a pound!

I'd like to know what their portion sizes are

Because we regularly pay over $100 to feed 20 people

That does not include the food that other people bring

I'm sorry but there is no way you can put on a Thanksgiving meal for $49.41 for 10 people

That's ridiculous… Milk in and of itself is over $3 a gallon!

They must be figuring everyone is going to eat only 4 ounces of meat (one quarter pound) .... In my family, we eat at least a pound of meat each

They must figure one sweet potato per person… In my family we eat at least two if not three sweet potatoes each


Dairy products
Up $0.25

3 pounds sweet potatoes
Up $0.20

flour-based foods
down $0.21

16 pound turkey
down $0.11


Wait –

3 pounds of sweet potatoes is going to feed 10 people?!

No way!

They either have very small sweet potatoes, or they are mashing them and then adding in cream and butter and what have you to fluff it up 

Even then though – I cannot see 3 pounds of sweet potatoes feeding 10 people!

A 16 pound bird, H MMM MM MMM

That sounds like they are planning about a pound per person (and that's assuming 6 pounds of bone)



Even if everything is made from scratch

Cannot see it coming in for $49 and cents

Straight from the horses mouth

<blockquote> "i'm the one that wrong everyone to the party by winning the House in the first place… I could have walked away, but we build something and then we want to take it to the next step,"
Representative Nancy pelosi (CA-D) 
How's my Nordie leader </blockquote> 

This woman is so insignificant… Siri doesn't even know how to spell Pelosi ...

Oh sure – now that I fixed it up above, she's learned ... 

sad face

Does anyone remember her "i'm the most powerful woman in the world" speech?

this woman is ancient!

put her back in her socauphogus, and put her back in the museum!

How old is she?

Like 90????


<blockquote>"I just heard about this– I get Willbridge before I get out here – The fact that some advisor, Who never worked on our staff. Expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters is no reflection on the actual process that was run" </blockquote> 

So you're saying you don't know who Gruber is?
That you never heard of him?

We will get back to your being briefed just before going on stage…

<blockquote> "… We've already drawn some of the brightest minds from academia and policy circles. Many of them I've  stolen ideas from literally, People ranging from Robert Gordon to Austin goals be to John Gruber…" </blockquote> 

Hmmmmm .....

Apparently  you do not want your own videos – which I totally don't believe

Both these statements were made by Pres. Obama himself!

The last one was in 2006, the first one was just recently

And I noticed that, Mr. Pres., you do not mention that he has visited the White House over 12 times!

And we are not talking for tourists/tours

And these weren't for any old party either

You make an appointment to get into the White House when you want to see someone who works there such as Secretary of State, Press Secretary, had speech writer ... Or the President of the United States!

And people thought he'd be a better representative for the United States then anybody else?

At this point Joe Biden doesn't look that bad!

The man is an idiot – but he doesn't try to hide it with a bunch of lies!

I'm betting Obama is going to be this generations version of Richard Nixon

Who by the way, really wasn't that bad of a president – he's just being remembered for all the bad things that happened during his terms, forget all the good things about his terms… But still he's name that lives in infamy

Straight from the horses mouth

<blockquote> "there's no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our southern border ... The number of immigrants added it to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this Country for over a Century. If this huge influx of mostly low skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole, it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strain on it and already overburdened safety net"

"when I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment, when I'm forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car I feel a certain frustration"

The audacity of hope
 Barack Obama, 2006


– No that's not mine, I just want votes

Because if nothing else Pres. Barack Obama is a politician

I did not agree when Ronald Reagan gave and Misty, and I will not agree when Barack Obama begins doing it as well

Things That Make You Go HMMMM ......


Sense of humor
Taste in food
Political opinion

So politics ranked number six -- personally I like having political debates with my husband.

When we met in college he was very liberal Democrat, I was a very conservative Republican leaning independent ...

After 25 years of marriage, he is now a liberal independent and I'm a conservative independent ... Well no that's not true either – we are both fiscally conservative

Things That Make You Go HMMMMMM ...

I was watching my recording (yes, I do record it so I can watch it while hubby's at work) of "The Five" when Bob Beckel – former staffer from the Clinton era – cohost of the show, made the most astounding statement:

" single women vote for Democrats
Married women vote for Republicans
Nothing changes - there is a gender gap"


That is NOT A gender gap

I believe, that Bob Beckel doesn't understand what gender means ... 

Perhaps he misspoke ...

Perhaps his brain is a little pickled ... 

Or at least starving for sugar since he's been on his new diet

Dear Bob:

Gender is based on whether you are male or female
It is not a lifestyle choice
It was given to you at conception
You do not develop it as needed like fighter fish
Although for some reason we allow people to reassign themselves
Genetically, there are only two – now or female

Being married or being single is a lifestyle choice
Having children are not having children is a lifestyle choice
Using birth control or not using birth control is a lifestyle choice
Keeping your child or a boarding your child is a lifestyle choice
What kind of car you drive is a lifestyle choice
What kind a home you choose to live then is a lifestyle choice
What kind of job you work at is a lifestyle choice
Kind of education you have is a lifestyle choice

The government has no right getting into our choices

The government does have The job of guarding our rights, Protech doing our rights, ensuring our rights

A married woman
Who sometimes votes Democrat
But mostly with Republican
Because I am fiscally conservative
I like my husband's money (i'm a stay-at-home mom -- I don't get paid with cash)

Economic Education

People complain all the time about the amount of money that spent during the election

A total of $3.67 billion was spent on this midterm election

So the majority of Americans must know how to really spend their money wisely then, right?

(apart from this election)

$83 billion beer
$69 billion lotto tickets
$6 billion Taco Bell

TOTAL is over $500 billion, nearly $600 billion (including what we spent on the election) ...

Just think if that money will put against the deficit

Used to feed the poor

Find warm housing for the homeless

Get Detroit out of debt 

wait – that was my mistake, they got themselves into debt they can get themselves out of debt

i'm just trying to say two things

A) don't tell other people where to spend their money (people in glass houses…)
B) people are really stupid
