Inflation, Lies and the Big Mac Index (BMI)

I'm always trying to figure out what's really going on, since you can't believe a tenth of what you hear.

So, introducing the Big Mac Index, in direct competition with the Consumer Price Index, to combat the lies of the Fed and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The beef don't lie.

I'm also combating other myths in this article, so check it out.

Good point

That's something Rothbard said too, that you have to show people that they're being ripped off. Like not hypotheticals and philsophy about freedom and stuff, no. YOU personally are being ripped off and here's the proof.

BUMP. Very pragmatic.

BUMP. Very pragmatic.

I wholeheartedly encourage us to use regularly this angle of view, too, when we are to denounce this ongoing plunder we're suffering.

I think its essential

not to just appeal to your side of an argument. If we're ever going to capture more than 6% of the vote, we're going to have to start telling a story that the "other side" will appreciate and listen to.

For instance, the very word "sheeple" isn't going to get anyone to see your point of view. Sheep or not, no one likes to think of themselves as a sheep.

Awesome site

and I thoroughly enjoyed the article.

It's sad to think that inflation-theft is happening right in front of people's eyes, yet they don't see it or they try to justify it.
