A few years ago i found an old pay stub of my grandfathers from 1946,when he worked at the fore river shipyard...

So i looked at it and then i started looking a little more closely at the numbers and what they were telling me now,sixty five years later...

He was making $2.50¢ an hour and he worked 40 hours and he grossed exactly $100,but,he cleared and brought home $92,which means that his dollar was worth 92¢ and so had 92¢ worth of buying power...

I couldnt believe what i was f####n looking at!

If i grossed $100 dollars now,i would only clear and bring home about $65 dollars,which means that my dollar is only worth 65¢ and has only 65¢ worth of buying power and that continuous withering erosion of the value and the buying power of our money is no accident...

Damned elite bastards,they f####n know exactly what their doing to us...

Hmmmm?...i wonder why i'm starting to think about the russian revolution right now!?

I know a guy who was driving a dump truck back and forth on construction sites back in the 1970s and he never even had to get out of the cab,except on breaks and to go home and he was making about $15 an hour,35 years ago,when gas cost about 50 cents a gallon,which would be equal to getting about $30 an hour now...

My grandfather was clearing about $1,000 a week welding for westinghouse back in the 1970s and 80s and he and his wife had their own house,had two kids,two cars and saved lots of money and his wife never even had to work,imagine that...

Runaway inflation and intentionally fabricated economic collapses are major problems that result in causing most of our misery and suffering...

Money is a weapon of domination and a tool of control thats wielded like a two edged sword against us by the royal bloodline elites...

I noticed the more I made the less I made throughout my work history. I left in 2006 before the bubble burst, but I saw it coming.

yup.gif I can understand that 100%. The economic policies at work here are designed to favor big business at the expense of traditional small business. Sad state of affairs JD.

This kind of all too common thing really enrages me...

Recently the hostess company went bankrupt and the usual many thousands of people lost their jobs...

And as usual,those expendable commodities didnt have any choice or say in the matter...

Then as if to add insult to injury,they were all told that the company would be unable to give them their severance and accumulated vacation pay...

Then to really kick them in the teeth while they were down,they find out that the ceos of hostess were all able to receive their millions of dollars bonuses...

Thats unf####n believable,damned elite bastards,who the f##k do they think they are!?

So the wealthy people,who didnt even really need any money when the company folded,get millions of f####n dollars,while those thousands of regular people,many with children, who all did really need some money,got f####n s##t!

Where the f##k did all that money suddenly come from?

People should have been screaming in the streets...

You know,like they do in europe,where the governments are afraid of their people,unlike in the united states,where the people are afraid of their government...

But i guess thats what happens in a oligarchy police state,i mean america...

Like i said,money is a pre-fabricated weapon of domination and a tool of control and it creates totally unnecessary class seperation...

Money causes crime and violence,desperate acts by desperate people desperately trying to get money...

And money causes so many financially oppressed people to become sexually repressed drug addicts trying to ecsape their miserable reality and others to buy and sell drugs for more and more money...

And instead of society properly addressing the real causes of drug addiction,the living in denial of itself society demonizes the addicts,rounds them up and throws them into f####n cages,out of sight out of mind...

What would the beautiful elites do if all money vanished and was gone forever and suddenly everyone was equal?

They would lose their f####n minds and that would never happen without a long and violent revolution...

Like the russian revolution,which annihilated the royal bloodline elite three hundred year old romanov dynasty and caused the deaths of around five million people...

But,then came stalin,who soon annihilated around twenty million more people,severe punishment for those who wanted and tried to get their freedom...

Hi,i'm still alive and i'm still awake with no sleep,but i'm use to getting little sleep anyways,i've averaged about 5 or 6 hours for many years now...

Now i'm a year older,but who cares? its just a number and all that really means is the earth orbited around the sun one more time,what really matters is our health, because without that,theres nothing...

In 1975 the average weekly pay was around $9,000 a year > http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/COLA/AWI.html

Which means the average worker was making about $175.00 a week...

In 1975 the average gas price was 50¢ a gallon > http://www.1970sflashback.com/1975/Economy.asp

So think about it,someone could put 20 gallons of gas into their car for $10.00...

Now gas is around $4.00 a gallon...

Now 20 gallons of gas costs about $80.00 f#####g dollars...

Which means gas is 8 times as expensive...

And so our average pay should have also increased 8 times to keep up with inflation...

Which means the average weekly pay now should be about $1,500 a week cleared...

Which isnt even f#####g close...

Most people dont even make half that every week...

Not to mention the f#####g fact that a new car now costs what a house use to cost in 1975...

Because the american middle class is being financially oppressed and crushed out of existence intentionally...

F#####g greedy bastards...

I hope they realize what happened to the wealthy elites during the russian revolution?

They were annihilated!

Good observation, you're right on the proverbial money.

Its painfully obvious to notice in the chart graph you posted above how gas prices stayed more or less the same for almost 60 f####n years,wow,wtf!?

But then the old generation withered and passed away and their totally driven by greed elite children grew up and took over and warped and twisted our economy to service themselves and their beautiful people friends and families...
