Glorious day, comrades! The Independence Day chocolate ration has been increased to 20 grams from 25 grams!
This simple GIF — and Insanity Wrap really does mean simple — from the Biden White House brings immediately to mind Brandolini’s law.
Also known as the bull**** asymmetry principle, Brandolini’s law states that the amount of energy needed to refute bull**** is an order of magnitude larger than to produce it.
Yet refute it we must, so Insanity Wrap goes once more into the breach.
Using a very narrow definition of what constitutes a cookout, Presidentish Biden’s crew was able to find a measly 16 cents in savings (for a family of four on a diet, we’re guessing by the portions) over last year’s cost.
But last year’s prices were artificially high, due to supply-chain disruptions caused by the lockdowns — which we now know were unnecessary.
Please tell us more about how the Left is so concerned about poor people because we’ve been looking for an excuse to graduate from day-drinking to heroin.
Bloomberg reported just last week that even when prices are holding steady, you’re often paying more due to “shrinkflation.”
This practice became increasingly common in the 1960s and 1970s, when manufacturers confronting runaway inflation tweaked packaging rather than hike prices. At first, the practice attracted relatively little notice: It’s difficult to discern changes in unit prices when they’re camouflaged in different-looking boxes and bags.
But, if you’re willing to “enjoy” the meager meal being celebrated today by President Porchlight, you and yours will be able to stuff your retirement account with one dime, one nickel, and one penny.
Unless you were planning on driving anywhere this weekend, that is.
The average gas price increase of 43.73% from last year (up even more in places most likely to have voted for President Gaslight) will wipe out that 16-cent food savings just idling your engine long enough to get the kids in the car and buckled up.
