Remember when Donald Trump said liberals would take away your hamberders, and he was for law and order?  Good times.

So should I ask for a cost of living bump in lieu of a performance increase this year? Wait, how much have I been slacking?

Yeah, once they learn that people will pay whatever they charge, they're not going to lower the prices, they're going to maximize their profits.  That's how it works here in the USofA.

I work in the corporate office of a large grocery chain. A few weeks ago, the CEO brought all of us on to an online "talkback" where executives could spew platitudes and not share any useful information about what the company is doing. (Are there really people stupid enough to find this pablum inspiring, or do we all just play along? But I'm getting off-topic.)

At one point, the CEO went a tad off script and, while talking about schmoozing with the president and some senators, said that one of those people recited the old "nine meals from anarchy" quote. I guess it was supposed to be another "you're all doing such important work" line, but revealing that actual food shortages were being discussed in the halls of power did NOT comfort me. Are they seriously worried about food riots?

Supply lines get farked, everyone pays more. I posted about this months ago.

When it's a well oiled machine it produces a magical amount of cheap food. But it's fragile. And a pangolin wandered into the gear works.

FTFA: ""At some point, if you want any chance to hold up any kind of margin, those costs are going to have to be passed on or somehow recognized by the government with some help.'"

Is that a veiled request for federal subsidies?

I'm guessing PETA is quite happy right now. My food budget this week included zero meat. $8/lb for 80/20 ground is entirely too expensive for my blood.

I learned about black beans some time ago and said if I every had to go vegetarian, black beans would become a staple. I guess we're here now.

I can still go hunting when the season comes around, so there's that.
