Inflation??

And now for some Friday morning humor…..or maybe this is NOT so funny, I guess it depends on your perspective…

So I read this article today on CNBC.com, you know the really smart BUSINESS channel/company that is a propagandist for the current regime “news” company.  First here is the propaganda article:

Consumer Prices Gassed Up but Inflation in Check – CNBC

Go ahead read it again….do you see the humor?

And here is the first paragraph in the article:

“U.S. consumer prices recorded their largest increase in nearly four years in February as the cost of gasoline surged, but details of the report on Friday showed no sign of a pickup in inflation to trouble the Federal Reserve.”

How about now, do you see the humor?

Prices ARE going UP, BUT there is NO INFLATION??  Who writes this crap??  And why are they PAID at all??

I am going to help CNBC out, and anyone else who does not understand, here is the DEFINITION of INFLATION:

in·fla·tion

/ɪnˈfleɪʃən/ Show Spelled [in-fley-shuhn] Show IPA

Or,

In economics, inflation is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services. Consequently, inflation also reflects an erosion in the purchasing power of money – a loss of real value in the internal medium of exchange and unit of account within the economy.” – Wikipedia

You see, when PRICES GO UP, it does not matter WHY they go up, it is BY DEFINITION INFLATION!!!!

IF this was NOT SO PAINFUL, it would be FUNNY!!!  The joke is on YOU!!!
