I need Help with an Economics class!

I have an extra credit assignment this week on what the current inflation rate is. So obviously i'm going to give my professor the generic Consumer Price Index figure which is at about 2% but I also want to add extra more "honest" figures.
Can anyone help with with links and sources of more accurate inflate rate figures to refute the ones that these corrupt organizations want us to believe? Thanks

Today is my 7 year anniversary on the Daily Paul!

I have thought a lot about what I want to say for my anniversary. So here it is. It may fare well, or it may fade away into the pages of the PAUL. But I believe that it may be an idea whose time has come.

I've read several nice posts and comments lately about how much @XYZ loves the folks on the Daily Paul. And, comments by #$^%& about how they would love to get together with other Daily Paulers if "Micheal would just call for a reunion" (sigh)

Is War Really a Racket?

Please imagine that one day, looking out your window, you note that a construction crew is building a brick wall around a neighbor’s house across the street and down the way. On subsequent days you note further progress and become perplexed over what your neighbor’s motivation might be. The wall is high and unpleasant looking. It surrounds the home, but for a few meters in the front. You become irritated at this unsightly mess and the damaging effect it has on the aesthetics of the neighborhood.

Dog walks 30 miles home and rejected - now in 11,000 sq ft mansion w/Wrigley gum heiress

Ma Kettle is an arthritic senior Lab who walked 30 miles to try to get home -- only to be rejected by her former family once she arrived.

The dog had seen a country song's amount of sadness already. Ma Kettle's previous owner -- who called her Lady -- died in 2012, leaving her homeless. She was adopted out of the Chautauqua County Animal Shelter, in Kansas, but then given away again for not getting along with a new puppy.

Fla. mom arrested for allowing son to play at park gets free legal defense

The heavy hand of Florida law enforcement slapped cuffs on a single mother last week for the crime of letting her son play at a neighborhood park by himself.

Charged with child neglect, Nicole Gainey faces up to five years in prison. If convicted, her 7-seven-year-old boy could end up in state custody.

Think the arrest is a small town one-off? Think again, says John Whitehead, a constitutional attorney for the Virginia-based Rutherford Institute.

There are no unusual circumstances in this case, he told Watchdog.org. It could pretty much happen to any family, he said.

Florida woman arrested after buying allergy medicine

TALLAHASSEE, FL — A woman says that she was arrested and imprisoned after she bought some allergy medicine from a local pharmacy.

The ordeal of Mickey Lynn Goodson occurred in July of 2010, but was recently brought to light in a federal lawsuit.

Ms. Goodson says that when she suffered seasonal “allergy flare-ups”, she asked a pharmacist what she might take to suppress her symptoms. Because of Florida’s draconian drug laws, coupled with Gadsden County’s overzealous enforcers and prosecutors, the woman’s medical issues would stem into a costly legal nightmare that lasted over a year.

Adrian Wyllie in Court Right Now Fighting Against Real ID - Clearwater FL

The Florida Libertarian Candidate for Governor who Voluntarily surrendered his drivers license to challenge Real ID is in court RIGHT NOW. From his facebook post yesterday:

UPDATE ON STATE V. WYLLIE: The State Attorney has filed a Motion To Strike my Motion To Dismiss. They have mounted a weak challenge on the basis of criminal procedure and jurisdiction. In my opinion, they are grasping at straws. I'm drafting a countermotion now, which should easily dispel their arguments.
