I see it in most thinks these days.Ben and Gerry's Ice Cream is not longer a Pint but the cost remains the same, Chicken is packaged at less than a pound a package to keep it under a price point, Cereal... same thing. List goes on and on. 

This has been happening for years, but now with Inflation it real hits hard.


Truth, you are spot on. Not everyone notices this.

The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us. –  Bill Watson


As I've grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.


I'm responsible for what I say, not what you understand. 


Common sense is like deodorant.  The people who need it the most never use it.


My tolerance for idiots is extremely low these days. I used to have some immunity built up, but obviously there's a new strain out there.


It's not my age that bothers me, it's the side effects.


I'm not saying I'm old and worn out, but I make sure I'm nowhere near the curb on trash day.


As I watch this generation try to rewrite our history, one thing I'm sure of .. it will be misspelled and have no punctuation.


Me, sobbing: "I'm not coming back here anymore ... I'm not going to let you hurt me again.


"My Trainer: "It was one sit-up."


As I've gotten older, people think I've become lazy.  The truth is I'm just being more energy efficient.


I haven't gotten anything done today.I've been in the Produce Department trying to open this stupid plastic bag. 


If you find yourself feeling useless, remember it took 20 years, trillions of dollars, and four U.S. presidents to replace the Taliban with the Taliban. 


Turns out that being a "senior" is mostly just googling how to do stuff. 


I want to be 18 again and ruin my life differently. I have new ideas. 


God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. Then he made the earth round...and laughed and laughed and laughed. 


I'm on two diets. I wasn't getting enough food on one. 


I put my scale in the bathroom corner and that's where the little liar will stay until it apologizes. 


My mind is like an internet browser. At least 19 open tabs, 3 of them are frozen, and I have no clue where the music is coming from.


Hard to believe I once had a phone attached to a wall, and when it rang, I picked it up without knowing who was calling.


Apparently, RSVP-ing to a wedding invitation "Maybe next time" isn't the correct response.


She says I keep pushing her buttons.  If that were true, I would have found "Mute" by now.


So, you've been eating hot dogs and McChicken all your life, but you won't take the vaccine because you don't know what's in it? 


Sometimes the Universe puts you in the same situation again to see if you're still a dumbass.


There is no such thing as a grouchy old person. The truth is, once you get old you stop being polite and start being honest.

In early January 2020, Bob Lonsberry, a Rochester talk radio personality, said this in response to Biden’s “ Income inequality speech”:

Two Americas

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

The America that works, and the America that doesn’t.

The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts.

Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. That’s the divide in America.
It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility.

It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office.

It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country. That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.

The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Biden pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.

That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Biden will take it for you. Vote Democrat.

That is the philosophy that produced Detroit. It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America .

It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.
The Democrats have not empowered their followers; they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope.

The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful – seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society is a result of different choices leading to different consequences. Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure. Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income.

You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college – and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education and/or employment.

You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course.

Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an in equality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I chose another avenue.

He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than mine. Does that mean he cheated and Joe Biden needs to take away his wealth? No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.
It is not inequality Joe Biden intends to take away, it is freedom. The freedom to succeed and the freedom to fail. There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and shortsighted decisions.

President Biden and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort. The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.” Biden would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society.

Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if President Biden Barack gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through mediocrity. He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other.  America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts. It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.

What Biden offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow.

Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.
