Yep…aboslutely hysterically funny if it weren't so tragic…you hear the inflation numbers remain at a low x.xx %, not including volatile food and energy prices

Announcers actually say this with a straight face.

Or they include fixed assets (deflated housing prices) with consumables, mixing apples and oranges and making it look like the overall inflation rate is down. You don't buy a house every week, but you do buy food and fuel every week.
