Inflation has caused the price of food to increase by an average of over 5% nationally compared to last year. How has this affected your Thanksgiving Day plans?

Idk about anyone else out there but food and drink has gone up more than 40%, where are these number crunchers getting their information from? I can guarantee most household grocery budget has blown up terribly and we have the Biden administration to blame!

It’s amazing how quickly the demonrats F up a perfectly good economy. Elections have consequences. Stolen elections have catastrophic consequences.

We are blessed to have a church that supplied us with all we need for Thanksgiving. We went from donating to receiving.

I was surprised at how many did NOT notice the obvious inflation??? That bunch is probably dyed-in-the-brain Democraps using the Commie tactic of cheating by dishonesty to rig the results more friendly to the Biden Democraps….The Democraps seem to be moving into Chinaj Government style and tactics….and as good as Biden is at plagiarizing that’s no surprise.

Did you mean that those who haven’t noticed get free food stamps and had a sizable increase in their free food stamps a while back therefore they haven’t noticed a price increase on anything because it’s all free?

More like a rise of 50% FJB

5%, really? I want to be spending where they spend. Groceries are at least 30% higher than this summer. Had had doubled. Utilities up despite less usage than last year. The good news? I’ve noticed that many of the things on the shelf are either American made or from the northern hemisphere. Less Chinese junk on the shelves to prop up their economy.

Hmmm. MAYBE the Democraps with the cooperation of most of the Media are clipping the numbers to deceive the pubic … and MAYBE we will see a month long snowstorm in the Sahara Desert!!!

Inflation will get worse faster as long as Democrats are in charge. The Dems buy votes by spending money. They do not care about inflation or the citizens who work and contribute to their community.

Disappointed with the questions, poor job writing slanted questions. I will answer the question you should have asked. I’m still having thanksgiving and will pay the higher price for the food. I don’t like it and wish the current administration would get fired.

Let’s Go Brandon!!
We live in a rural Northern AZ resort area that has been non-restricted for Covid. Restaurants and bars shut down for only a few weeks in 2020, but the nightly house rentals exploded in popularity. We have been packed with tourists. Since Bided took office – fuel is doubled, groceries up 30%, restaurants up 50%. The quality of fresh food is horrible and the stores cannot even get a lot of what we normally have. They ran out of turkeys and hams a couple days ago at our 3 stores and there are signs promising more today. How do you thaw a turkey in 24 hours? In 2020 we could get green onions. We buy eating pumpkins to make pies and got them a month ago.
Christmas shopping is completed online and has been delivered. Thanksgiving dinner from scratch for the whole family is purchased.
Thank God we live in the USA, have survived bad politics before and will get through.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah and a Great Free Holiday Season no matter how you celebrate it!!!!

It’s not due to inflation but due to covid misinformation that we are having Thanksgiving without extended family this year. They are all vaccinated and we are not, so we were “disinvited” from the traditional family gathering.

Exactly, no one should be surprised by the disinvite . After all, Biden’s children got up and encouraged families to disinvite. Fortunately I have real thinkers around me.

Get lost Wesley. I would rather eat by myself than “get the vac” that does nothing to prevent Covid and it’s spread. We’ll see what your take is on the experimental vaccine in the future. Don’t forget to keep us posted on you your groupies side effects , because the mandaters won’t let us know

I would wish MR. Biden a happy holiday, although, on second thought, I don’t really need to, as I, with every other taxpayer will make sure to it that his Holiday will be quite happy, as we will all be footing any bills he and his many cronies may incur. Thanks to all who voted him in, they sure made the right choice. Are any of you starting to understand what oppression really is? To everyone else, a Very Merry Christmas and hopefully better and Happy New Year.

I am alone and just Thankful I can still afford my home. My taxes for this year will not be a fun adventure. My income is fixed, my expenses (taxes, electric and water) are NOT fixed. At 78 I thought I would be able to retire. As long as I am able to work I may be able to stay in my home and live out my life. Nancy and Joe may have the money to life in comfort, I dont.

I wish you the best Betty. Here we have a 78 year old still working just to pay living expenses, but we can’t get young people to work for the same thing and they still have everything and more than Betty has. I remember being taught about this in Sunday school. I’m sorry that you are alone for the holidays Betty. If you accept Jesus as your personal savior, you will never be alone again. He will be with you in all you do

Praise to Tony D. Inflation, infidelity, and disloyalty of warped, illiberal progressives are causing long-cherished culture and traditions to be surrendered to evil. Obama’s “front man,” CCP’s “old friend” – aided by coy, cozy and callous (opposition) – is hell bent on coercing citizens of every American town to fund “no go zones” for criminal aliens and radical, socialist infra-slush (birth to grave) welfare mandates at the expense of liberty, sovereignty citizenship, and true happiness. Praise to the heart and mind of Tulsi Gabbard: Our problems are spiritual. Thus, our most profound societal solutions must be spiritual?

I live out of town. One sis does Thanksgiving the other does Christmas. I bring pumpkin tortes and green bean casserole.

How odd that someone would not notice the difference in prices at the grocery store. Eith they have more money than the rest of us, or they don’t budget therefore cost us meaningless to them , However those of us that do budget notice the price increases of Turkey, ham, and all the food we buy. Every item whether for Thanksgiving or not costs exponentially much more. I have 4 grandchildren & When you go through the Checkout and the cost is over $300. Dollars for a family of 6 , plus guests how is it someone wouldn’t notice the price increase? Bread is in the $3-$4. dollar range. Gas is in the $3. to $4. dollar range.
I’ve just gotten out of the hospital and my medication this month is in the $500. dollar range and I’m on Medicare. Due to illness I’m in the Donut Hole. When you add the cost of guests plus Medical expenses then we decided to eat out but even the cost of eating out is expensive.

Maybe the people who did not notice any price increases don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, or maybe they live on a turkey farm!
