Why you think 20lb flat screen LCD TV's are so cheap? well they don't weigh 70-100 pounds a piece and come in boxes (depending on the size of your TV) that are 6 inches by 36 inches... Hence, easier to transport - hence why the US has taken over the market in flat screen TV's..... But that is just an example, while I could use many.
Oh, but inflation is only 6.something%.From the linked article:
It's is not her imagination. While the government says prices are up 6.4 percent since 2011, chicken is up 18.4 percent, ground beef is up 16.8 percent and bacon has skyrocketed up 22.8 percent...
Phfft! The way the government calculates cost of living increases / inflation the numbers don't mean anything anymore. Essentially, they're lying to us... again.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
The fact that you seem totally oblivious to the fact that I was responding to someone who asked why an increase in the minimum wage would not lead to a big increase in the cost of food to the consumer.
We were not talking about transportation at all. Try to understand what people are talking about before jumping in.
