I lost all faith in Government statistics when I found out that their inflation calculation (CPI) does not include food or fuel. That's about half of economic reality for most people in this country (those of us who ain't in the "big club"). The price of food has risen 20% in the past 6 months, mostly through smaller quantities at the same price. With all the crop failures this year, that's bound to look mild. We all know what fuel prices have done. Do we need any better proof that folks in Washington DC (all of them) are living in la-la land?
