Don't know where you have been shopping but in AZ you can always find a gallon of milk for $.99 and eggs for $.88.

With 5 major vendors in the area if you just shop the loss leaders you save about 70%. After conversion our food  bill is about 1/3 of our Canadian bill.

Why would you drink American milk ?

Could be a bit of a drive from AZ to find non American milk? Just guessing.

Yuck.  I find their milk horrible.  Doesn't even need to go in the fridge.

Arizona is lower than most of the country, apparently.

 

Here's a good resource by various cities: https://www.ams.usda...kPrices2018.pdf (it doesn't like the link so screenshot below).

 

The average of 3.26 for September is roughly 4.40 CAD, which is very close to what I pay for a gallon of milk from Country grocer here. Shrug. Costco is like, 4.29 or something for a gallon. So a little cheaper, on average, but plenty of places in the US that pay more for milk than we do here.

Why the heck are they paying more than us in Wisconsin where they produce waaaaaaaaay more milk than they need?

Well done, Mr. Trump... biting the hand that feeds you (in more ways than one).

Trump today:

 

"We were being taken advantage of by Canada nobody knows that -- 'O Canada,' beautiful song -- they charge 300% tariff for a little thing called agricultural products."

 

 

I strongly agree with one item in that sentence.

Reading his senile old-man drivel hurts my heart.

I love seeing the left cheering on multi national corporations against job protecting tarrif legislation. Even funnier when it's people who used to protest NAFTA. Hilarious.

Regardless of the truth (for its relevance is slight), doesn't everyone - left, right, or anywhere else on the spectrum, layman and expert alike - get tired of Trump calling everyone idiots?

 

Mexico China Vietnam Europe Canada is taking advantage of the USA (man, they must be one big patsy) and nobody realized this until Trump came along.

 

To be fair, I suppose he is the Internet* of politicians - it doesn't matter how he says it, you know what he means, right?.  (Mostly?)

 

* Spelling, grammar and general coherence aren't important - you know what they meant, right?

The point is that before Trump no body did anything about it and even now people pretend it isn't true (see above)

He's not saying nobody did anything, he's saying nobody knew.
