A mere two weeks ago i bought a quart of standard bondo for 8.99. Today i had to buy another,, same product, same store,, 12.99..an increase of exactly 50% in two weeks.

Over the past year and a half, my over head has increased across the board between 35 and 50%. All items i need to order as well as shipping costs have soared.


Dont get me started on grocery's..


feelin the pinch??

Well a 50% jump in two weeks was a shocker. Metal is also jumping up and polyurethane foam is like buying liquid cocaine er sumpn. Glass eyes a year ago i paid 2.95 a pair for are now 5.95 for lil 7mm bird eyes.

Its not just obama, its every other jackwagon counterfeit corkscrew in washington and then some.

Any rate SHYT is gettin EXPENSIVE out there!

theres nothing like a bondo buzz in the morning... Especially if ya thin-er down with some lacquer, while mixing a skin around in a seven acid tanning solution while a bird skin soaks in white gas over in the corner. Then i light up a smoke and sip da coffee..

Guess no one gives a rip that products are jumping 50% in a matter of weeks. But THAT is a worrisome thing imo.. Cuz it AINT just bondo..

things are going up wages not so fast but there are still lots of stuff being thrown away and excess.
If you get creative you can find tons for free. Have fun with it and try and stay positive.

Hope for roundabouts and bike paths galore.

Nothing like the great bondo price increase of June 2005.

Our wealth has been redistributed on the stealth. You can't raise the standard of living worldwide as easy as you can lower the standard in the developed world. Call it inflation, call it offshoring, call it enviromental activism, call it Ben's printing press, call it corporate greed; it all ends the same way-third world status for all citizenry and wealth and power concentrated in the hands of the new aristocracy. Obama will soon go on another redistribution tour, on tens of millions of our hard earned dollars, where he will once again hand out our "stash", this time in Africa.
