(NaturalNews) A Thanksgiving dinner at the Hotel Gettysburg in 1909 offered a lush array of gourmet food for just 50 cents. (h/t to The Burning Platform)
The menu, shown below, offered diners fresh lobster salad, broiled lake trout, beechnut ham, roast ribs of prime beef, young Vermont turkey with cranberry sauce, oyster patties, Gettysburg pudding, vanilla cream pie, apple pie, chocolate cake, a variety of cheeses, appetizers and beverages… all for just 50 cents!
Even better, the entire menu was 100% organic and non-GMO because chemical pesticides and GMOs didn’t exist in 1909.
Today, a similar Thanksgiving buffet is impossible to find because everything is grown with toxic chemicals and GMOs. But even if you could find such a Thanksgiving buffet, it would easily cost $50 – $100.
So how could this Thanksgiving dinner be 100 to 200 times cheaper in 1909, just one century ago? The answer is because the Federal Reserve banking cartel has stolen almost 99% of America’s wealth over the last century.
By creating trillions of dollar in fiat (counterfeit) currency, the Fed has flooded the global marketplace with new dollars that erode the value of all dollars in circulation. Over the last hundred years, this has caused a quiet, insidious theft of almost 99% of the value of money… a fact that’s readily apparent in the never-ending price inflation of food. Inflation is NOT a natural phenomenon. If the Fed weren’t stealing your wealth, food prices would be the same in 2014 as 1909.
Here’s what 50 cents bought you in 1909. Today that same 50 cents doesn’t even buy you a crappy taco at Taco Bell:
