(John Ransom, Headline USA) Progressives at the World Economic Forum and Bloomberg opinion have come up with some unusual ways to beat the Biden inflation that’s crippling the country, including adding bugs as a dietary staple, denying house pets healthcare treatment, and replacing meats with “lentils.”
In one of an unending “never let a crisis go to waste” moments since Obama made that the top-most Democrat policy, progressives are using the Russian-Ukraine war to warn about an impending food crisis and combining that with the inflation threat to reassure everyone that there are some easy solutions, according to Zero Hedge.
Inflation stings most if you earn less than $300K. Here’s how to deal:
➡️ Take the bus
➡️ Don’t buy in bulk
➡️ Try lentils instead of meat
➡️ Nobody said this would be fun https://t.co/HGJEoXL5ZZ

Teresa Ghilarducci, a professor who is billed as a labor and retirement academic at The New School, a progressive academic play-house complete with 1970s graphics, has said that people should cut out the animal in the middle of the food chain and just go to eating plants directly, in an opinion piece at Bloomberg.
“It’s a more efficient, healthier and cheaper way to get calories,” said Ghilarducci.
Sounds like Ghilarducci is a vegetarian.
Ghilarducci also said in Bloomberg that if “you’re one of the many Americans who became a new pet owner during the pandemic, you might want to rethink those costly pet medical needs,” which she admits “sounds” harsh.
But that’s nothing compared to the WEF, which Zero Hedge said is associated with the New School.
Zero Hedge shared a cover of a WEF publication that says: Why we need to give insects the role they deserve in our food systems
And another WEF story that makes this prediction: You’ll own nothing and be happy. This is how our world could change by 2030
“We are currently witnessing the beginning of a global food crisis, driven by the knock-on effects of a pandemic and more recently the rise in fuel prices and the conflict in Ukraine,” said the WEF.
And the solution they’ve come up with is more bugs in your diet.
As a Bloomberg tweet on the Ghilarducci opinion piece makes clear: “Nobody said this would be fun.” Or delicious.
And that message seems to be getting through to Ghilarducci on Twitter who has responded to a variety of savage criticisms.
“Anyone who is responding to my Bloomberg piece should actually read the article,” Ghilarducci tweeted.
“Inflation is wildly regressive. And so is the Federal Reserve’s response. You can’t solve inflation with rate hikes,”
Or by killing pets and eating bugs.
