I hope y’all enjoyed your 16 cents on July 4th because this Thanksgiving will be the most expensive ever
· Oct 26, 2021 · NottheBee.com

Remember how the Biden admin wanted us little people to celebrate a $0.16 reduction in our Independence Day meals as if it proved they were economic wizards?

Fast forward a few months:


Nearly every component of the traditional American Thanksgiving dinner, from the disposable aluminum turkey roasting pan to the coffee and pie, will cost more this year, according to agricultural economists, farmers and grocery executives. Major food companies like Nestlé and Procter & Gamble have already warned consumers to brace for more price increases.

Remember though: We got rid of that "Make America Great Again Guy," so it's totally worth it... even if the new slogan is "Try To Lower Expectations."

There is no single culprit. The nation's food supply has been battered by a knotted supply chain, high transportation expenses, labor shortages, trade policies and bad weather. Inflation is at play, too. In September, the Consumer Price Index for food was up 4.6 percent from a year ago. Prices for meat, poultry, fish and eggs soared 10.5 percent.

Outside of weather, whose executive policies and lack of leadership skill (in America, at least) have been contributing directly to a "knotted supply chain, high transportation expenses, labor shortages, trade policies," and the like??

One food writer called our imminent Turkey Day preparations "the perfect storm," which means I fully expect to see middle-aged women going full gladiator over the last frozen bird.

For many cooks, the biggest expense will be the turkey. By the end of the year, market analysts say, prices per pound will likely surpass the record Department of Agriculture benchmark price for turkeys — $1.36, set in 2015.

Turkey is more expensive largely because the price of corn, which most commercial turkeys feed on, more than doubled in some parts of the country from July 2020 to July 2021. Whole frozen birds between eight and 16 pounds already cost 25 cents a pound more than they did a year ago, according to the weekly Department of Agriculture turkey report released on Friday.

Like I said, competition will be fierce.

The globalist elites, meanwhile, will tell us that super expensive Thanksgiving is a good thing, because they are guiding us out of our human greed and gluttony into the glorious future of no electricity and cricket burger bread lines!

I will make one prediction: I have a feeling a lot of people will name their turkeys "Brandon" this year to commemorate the record prices!
