On the third Sunday each month the local V.F.W. serves breakfast. Profits go to help disabled vets. Cost? $9.00. A year ago it was $7.00.
Now I’m not complaining about the price. The point being inflation hurts people who are poor and/or disabled disproportionately.
My reason for having breakfast there is simply to do something for disabled vets. Sunday breakfast at nearly any restaurant in this fair town will take a big chunk out of a $20 bill. I can afford it.
We usually have a group at the V.F.W. and enjoy the company as much as the food.
Coming up to the mid terms there is talk of social security payments going up 8.2%. Whoopy! Isn’t the real inflation rate over 20%?
