3) Now, for the CPI that you sorted up there. Where do you live??? Don't you see the reality??? Forget about the numbers on FOX or who knows where. It is very clear that the everyday prices are way up compared to last year or the year before, way above the average salary increase....simple as that.
If you wish to substitute personal anecdotes for statistical analysis performed by trained professionals, you are free to do so. Knowledgeable and reasonable people do otherwise.
