Since Inflation Is So High Now, The Elite Have Some Suggestions For How You Can Save Money This Thanksgiving…

This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at The Economic Collapse

Normally, inflation is not a major theme on Thanksgiving.  Unfortunately, these are not normal times.  Thanks to Joe Biden and our other crooked politicians in Washington, we are facing an inflation crisis that is unlike anything that we have experienced since the 1970s.  Earlier this week, I discussed a new poll which showed that 88 percent of Americans are deeply concerned about inflation, and a different poll found that 67 percent of Americans disapprove of the way that Biden is handling rising prices.  Now Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and most Americans are finding that their grocery dollars are not stretching as far as they once did.

This is being hailed as “the most expensive Thanksgiving ever”, but don’t worry, because the elite are offering some suggestions for how you can save some money.

For example, NBC News is telling us to “consider not buying a turkey” in order to save some cash.

If that wasn’t offensive enough, they are also saying that “some people think turkey is overrated” and that an “Italian feast” might be a better alternative…

“I know that is the staple of the Thanksgiving meal. However, some people think turkey is overrated, and so it tends to be the most expensive thing on the table. Maybe you do an Italian feast instead.”

I love Italian food, but Americans have eaten turkey on Thanksgiving for generations.

Sadly, many Americans won’t be having turkey this year because it has just gotten too expensive.

Of course NBC has an answer for that too.  They are suggesting that if you tell those you have invited that there won’t be any turkey on the table “some guests may drop off the list, and that’s a way to cut costs too.”


That is what they actually think ordinary Americans should do?

It just makes me sick how the elite talk down to us like this.

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis is being even more offensive.  A few days ago, they encouraged Americans to consider a “soybean-based dinner” because turkey is so much more expensive…

“A Thanksgiving dinner serving of poultry costs $1.42. A soybean-based dinner serving with the same amount of calories costs 66 cents and provides almost twice as much protein”


Just yuck.

Over the years, I have tried “alternative” soybean-based products from time to time, and to be frank all of them were disgusting.

And I find it to be highly offensive for the people that actually created this inflation crisis to be pushing Americans toward less expensive and more “eco-friendly” alternatives.

We wouldn’t be in this mess if the Federal Reserve had not created trillions upon trillions of dollars out of thin air over the past couple of years.

And we wouldn’t be in this mess if NBC News and other media outlets had not endlessly promoted the corrupt politicians in Washington that just keep borrowing and spending money as if the future will never come.

We didn’t get here by accident.

What we are now experiencing is a perfect example of cause and effect.  Our insane leaders flooded the system with new money, and now a typical Thanksgiving dinner is 14 percent more expensive than it was last year…

The cost of providing a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner to 10 people in 2021 is 14% higher than a year agoaccording to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual survey.

Thankfully, your income has gone up 14 percent over the past year as well, right?

Sadly, most of you will not be able to answer that question affirmatively.

The cost of turkey is rising at a particularly blazing pace.  At this point, the average price of a 16 pound turkey is $4.60 higher than it was at this time in 2020

Ranking the data this way lets us see that the increase in the cost of turkey is responsible for most of the year-over-year increase. Rising by $4.60 from 2020’s $19.39 to 2021’s $23.99 for a 16-pound bird, turkey alone accounts for nearly 72% of the year-over-year increase in the total cost for the meal.

But at least soybean-based dinners are still affordable.

Of maybe you could even eat bugs this year.

The global elite would really love that.

In addition to changing the menu, the elite are also giving us pointers for how to minimize the spread of COVID during our Thanksgiving celebrations.

According to the New York Times, children should wear masks, eat as quickly as they can, and stay as far away from the adults as possible

I’m glad to hear that the children and all guests are vaccinated. As the kids will not be fully vaccinated until two weeks after their second shot, I think some care is warranted, especially because some attendees are 65 and older and thus at greater risk of more serious breakthrough infections. You could have the kids wear masks, eat quickly and stay away from the older adults when eating.

So I guess that hugging grandma and grandpa is out of the question.

These control freaks really do want to micromanage all of our lives, and those that obediently do whatever they say without thinking are part of the problem.

The truth is that the vast majority of the “experts” that they put on television to tell us how to live our lives really aren’t “experts” at all.

It is all a big con game, and it amazes me that there are still so many people out there that fall for it.

Once you get a look behind the curtain and you realize what a giant fraud their entire system is, there is no going back.

Unfortunately, much of the population is still under their spell, and so we need to work really hard to wake people up while there is still time to do so.

Look, I really do hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Eat lots of turkey, enjoy your family and friends, and try to smile.

We should find joy in these moments while we still can, because soon everything will change.

    It’s only a matter of time before these fools will make Soylent Green a reality.
    (It kind of gives new meaning to the words “bite me” – sheesh)

      I was at a Publix (main grocery chain in Florida) the day before Thanksgiving and I passed by a sports drink named Soylent. No joke. I thought to myself, what marketing genius thought Soylent would be a great name for a sports/nutrition drink? If it took me a 1/1000 to see the connection, I’m sure most others saw it too.

        I’m sure whoever named it was quite aware of the 1973 dystopian movie and thought it was a good marketing tool, i.e. a joke. BTW, only a MONTH to go before 2022…

    I’ve seen this elitist condescending “advice” for the “Proletariat” before. Back in the mid-70s, when inflation started to ramp up, and as the economy soured, became “stagflation”, we heard the same crap…like eat PEANUT BUTTER for cheaper protein. Then, of course, a PEANUT FARMER gets elected, on the perception that he was an “incorruptible” outsider. Well, ol’ Jimmy might indeed be an “honest” man, but he proved to be “honesty” naive and at times downright foolish. However, even the price of a jar of peanut butter shot up in 1980. Could that have been the REAL reason he was handily defeated for re-election by Reagan?
