I thought Id pass this on.

An informal survey in Montana finds Albertsons prices are as much as 50% higher if you don't have a card. Why have grocery prices gone through the roof? Because supermarkets are wasting your shopping dollars to fund new ways of spying on you. The latest offense is a Safeway grocery cart that tracks you as you move through the store and flashes personalized advertising at you.

To each his own, but I believe that my family saves many times the cost of the Costco membership every year. Just like any other store, you have to watch out for items that are not good deals, but I have bought many things at Costco for much less than I could of anywhere else that is available to me. The only thing about Costco that annoys me is that I always have to stand in line for awhile to buy even one item, no matter what time of day or night I am in there.

One thing I have learned about Costco is that if you see an item you want in there, you better buy it right away, as they often do not restock things and that item might not be there next time.

You know that the Reversal of Freedoms Act, oops, I mean the Patriot act, includes the routine gathering of your shopping profiles from all those cards, right? The FBI includes even what you buy for dinner in their databases. Interesting how the only ones to lose actual freedoms are we American citizens. Does that mean the terrorists are winning?
