Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
No doubt many of us are feeling the sting of President Biden’s economic policies. Inflation is at near-historic levels and gas prices are off the charts. Nearly $7 a gallon across parts of Southern California.
So a columnist for Bloomberg thought it might be helpful to offer some advice on how to make your dollar stretch during these difficult days of Bidenflation.
Teresa Ghilarducci suggested that Americans should go vegan — foregoing cheeseburgers for what she called tasty meat substitutes — like beans and lentils.
“Though your palate may not be used to it, tasty meat substitutes include vegetables (where prices are up a little over 4%, or lentils and beans, which are up about 9%). Plan to cut out the middle creature and consume plants directly. It’s a more efficient, healthier and cheaper way to get calories,” the op-ed said.
What a bunch of bologna.
It seems to me that a diet made up primarily of beans could cause an uptick in gas emissions.
She also recommended killing your family pet. No seriously. Ms. Ghilarducci said we should rethink costly medical needs — like pet chemotherapy.
“If you’re one of the many Americans who became a new pet owner during the pandemic, you might want to rethink those costly pet medical needs. It may sound harsh, but researchers actually don’t recommend pet chemotherapy — which can cost up to $10,000 — for ethical reasons,” she wrote.
Other recommendations – sell your car and take the bus. And stop buying 60 rolls of toilet paper at Costco.
In other words, the best way to survive inflation eat beans and let Fluffy die.
Of course, there are some other ways to cut back on spending — like canceling your subscription to Bloomberg.
