The Business of Changing Times,,,,,


,,,OK, like it or not, whichever side of the political fence you currently throw your schitt across, the simple fact is the Business of Doing Business is about to change. For better or worse remains to be seen I suppose.

The point of this thread is to document current prices for things (goods and services) that are important to your business, but more importantly current prices as they relate directly to you and your family.

Please, no attacking Trump or Biden. Lets just put the facts here and let them lie where they fall so as to look back later and see what we didn't see.


OK, Ill start.

Gas where I live and buy it is just under $2.00 a gallon.

I have Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance thru the State of North Carolina (my wife is a teacher) and I pay $540 a month for pretty good insurance.

A case of Bud heavy is $17 at Walmart and closer to $20 at Publix

I had my teeth cleaned last week (no insurance) cost me $117

Lean ground beef at Publix is $3.79 a pound

Shrimp/ Frozen 31/35's at $5.99 a pound

The Dow Jones hit 30,400 just the other day

My overall financial portfolio went up (just a thumbnail) a little over 25%

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Try and not fukkk it up

OK, whos next?

The next edit is next week.

The first two month's edits (or updates) show prices of goods and services increasing, ten year yields on a steady rise, precious metals way down, the stock market up, and lumber, ammo, and food prices are higher than that crack-head-Leon over on Spruill. Awwhh,,, fukk Leon, he's a big part of the problem, try and stay with me here.

Is there a bright spot economically anywhere yet? What about on the horizon?

I guess with all the new migrants coming into the country now labor should be getting cheap, huh? That's a good thing right?

Anyway, Ill update next week at 90 days in. Lets listen in......


As You Were



Ammunition shortage and high prices for way over a year now.
Canning jars shortage and triple their price way over a year now.
You know there's a lot more that can be added to this list way over a year now.
Most likely never be the same. Everything has really been fuked up for four years now.
Going to take a long time to get back to normal.

Hey Bob wife just got 48 -court size with lids and rings off Amazon for 36 bucks shipped to the house..
As everyone knows There's always a run on guns and ammo right before an election. Especially if they think a Democrats getting into office.But never like this.
The gun stores are keeping guns on the shelves now. But still not much ammo.
My reasoning behind the ammo shortage is 4 million new gun owners in less than 2 or 3-months.
Bob if you need a few boxes of something let me know and I can bring you some. only thing I don't have and have not seen on the shelves is 380.
Ammo seems to come out in waves there's an abundance of 40 cal out there right now.

Gas in Greenville $2.51 a gallon

So the Moron in Chief shut down the pipeline, which absolutely sucks!

SO, what's up with fuel prices skyrocketing?? Keystone wasn't pumping yet, correct?? Perhaps to some new refineries along it's path...$2.80ish for Diesel in Augusta, Ga today.

In a nutshell, as covid restrictions relax, especially with the number of vaccinations and warmer weather just around the corner, more folks begin to travel and recreate. Demand is going up.

So anyway, as that demand quickly rises, pipeline or not, Opec has not increased production. Russia either, and don't even get me started on ChInah.

Its a supply and demand thing, brent crude was over $60 a barrel today, so I'd look for pricing around the $3.25 range at the pump by Memorial Day. Thats my best guess, lets see what happens.

As You Were

Unfortunately I think you're right $271 today Florence.
Shingles went up 2 bucks a square.
All of our vendors are telling us they're going to have to start a fuel surcharge again on all deliveries.

Too early to see any real trends and swings, but as far as trends and swings go the pendulum appears to be swinging the other way.

I am starting to see a trend, hummmmm......

Stock Market Up, Gold Down, Oil Up, Treasuries Way Up, Interest rates rising, Unemployment Rates shrinking, over 100,000 immigrants crossed the border in February, and No Major New Conflicts (pay attention to this one.)

Lets Listen In..........

As you were
