Well, That Will Put a Damper on My T-Day Shopping

Americans Face Most Expensive Thanksgiving in History (townhall.com)

The New York Times published a story Monday explaining how nearly every aspect of Americans' Turkey Day feasts will be more expensive this year from spices and ingredients to the aluminum pan that holds the bird and fixings. It's not just a few extra cents here and there, it's everything. And, as The New York Times concludes, "Thanksgiving 2021 could be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday."

Well, that’s just peachy. Bidenflation is a wonderful thing, ain’t it?

Even the star of Thanksgiving dinner, the turkey, is setting price records. As Mika noted, the "price per pound is expected to rise above $1.36, surpassing the record benchmark price set back in 2015."

Great. I get a 25+ pound bird (we like leftovers).  The wallet will be leaner this year.

And now, a point from MSNBC, a network that rarely makes it on this blog except satirically.
