Make It Stop

So everybody's talking about the high cost of living nowadays.
I'm not going to go on a big rant, but I just wanted to get it off my chest.

We've seen the prices climbing at the pump, the grocery store, and pretty much anywhere you buy anything.
Now to add insult to injury, Dow Chemical is increasing prices on all their products up to 20% by next week. Thanks for the warning, fellas.
I hope everyone has enough diapers, detergents, and pretty much everything that we use on a daily basis 'cause this is going to hurt a little.
(Note to self: Better pick up some lube before THAT goes up in price next week!)
But the cost of living isn't going up as much as we seem to think, isn't that what the government is telling us?

And we can't blame the oil executives. After all, they're doing everything they can to rape us blind... er, help us in this time of economic crisis.

It makes this scene from "Network" all that much more appropriate:

Well... I stop complaining now.
Regular posting of funny stuff to follow soon.

1 things people had to say:

They might as well mark up the price of lube, since we're all going to need it. Simple supply-side economics.

Gas went up 10-cents overnight. I filled up on Saturday for $4.03, and on Sunday it was $4.13/gal at the same station.

There's a reason why I haven't started ranting on this over at Untitled, because I fear I'll never stop.
