Quick rip off post
From Mugambo land, comes this quote:
- John Crudele of The New York Post reports that "American Auto Association calculates that gasoline prices have risen 21.5% since this same time last year. But the government swears gas prices are only 6.9% higher over the year." What a discrepancy! The upshot is "That little trick alone saved the CPI from being 0.53% points higher."
And it is not just about gas, as he goes on to write, "Despite all you've read, the government thinks housing is only 2.2% higher over the past year. Others, including the National Association of Realtors, calculate that housing is up at least 12.5%."
In short, your government has screwed things up royally, but instead of fixing the problems they caused, they prefer to lie about it.
Guess I was wrong, I had thought the lies were smaller then that. Guess worse times call for bigger lies.
Out and about,
