Video: Inflation - Highest in 39 Years; Plant a Victory Garden

Dear brothers and sisters,

The Federal Reserve  has created trillions of dollars out of thin air; this has led to an enormous stock market bubble and a housing bubble.

This is nothing less than one of the most radical monetary experiments in history. It hits working people the hardest: during November average hourly earnings increased 4.8% but with 6.9% inflation real hourly earnings fell 2.1%. Indeed, this was the eight month in a row in which people’s pay has shrunk.

Inflation is also  a severe tax upon the poor; after all, they spend most of their income on food and necessities.

Printing-press money distorts and destroys the real economy. It seems likely that the dollar will collapse and sadly enough, food prices will soar. Grocery shelves will be empty and inflation will give way to hyperinflation. Soaring prices will lead to a chain reaction of bankruptcies. This will culminate in a crash.

We say to you - get growing brothers and sisters! Hug the earth, it will sustain you.                                                                                   

You can start now, even in the midst of winter you can prepare. Plan your Victory Garden! 

Why wait, build a compost pile now! Give yourself the satisfaction of seeing every carrot top, apple core and banana peel turn into life-giving humus.

Let’s then get together, brothers and sisters, with neighbors, friends and family and plant here a Victory Garden for the American spirit.
