Prices on a Tear

leave a comment »

A study this year by the Senior Citizens League found that Social Security benefits have lost about 22% of their buying power since 2000, despite several COLA benefit increases.

According to the study, from January 2000 to January 2015…

—  Heating oil is up 159%

—  Medicare Part B premiums are up 131%

—  A pound of ground chuck is up 130%

—  The cost of a landline phone is up 52%

—  The price of a stamp is up 48%

The prices for your home insurance and real estate taxes have also more than doubled, at 161% and 127%.

Other costs are going up. Since last September’s measure, medical care has climbed 2.4%, housing costs are 3.2% higher, and food prices are up 1.6%.

Your income has not increased nearly as much.

What are you going to do?

Ask your boss for a bigger raise or cost of living increase?

Fat chance.

Is the government going to take care of you?

In your dreams.

Government is the cause of rocketing prices.

Do not blame business or the rich.

Doing so is a knee-jerk reaction.

Better do something.

Higher Taxes and IRS Targeting for The Middle Class

leave a comment »

The government needs more money to support lowquals and freeloaders.

High-income earners and the corporate sector means fighting high power tax lawyers.

Who else has any money?

The middle class.

Hello higher taxes and more penalties/fines.

The government continues to ignore the huge underground economy.

Billions of dollars of untaxed income.

Not in so-called offshore tax havens.

Right here in the good old USA.

leave a comment »

And it is going to come out of your pocket.

You will pay more and get less:

—  corporations will shift more health care costs to employees

—  someone has to pay for the health care of lowquals and freeloaders

—  government employees will get cadillac plans at your expense

—  deductibles will increase

—  prices will continue to rise for insurance and health care

So what?

You are rich and can afford it.

u-bam-aCare Deductibles to Double in 2016

leave a comment »

Maybe not exactly.

Anywhere from 20% on up.

Premiums will also increase.

The government has taken the money right out of your pocket.

Once again.

Wages are not rising.

Other prices are rising.

Your financial welfare slowly slips away.

Poor People Are the Enemy of the Middle Class

leave a comment »

The best way for the middle class to defeat them is KILL THEM.

Several commenters have suggested alternatives.

Such ideas as

—  the pie will grow and there will be enough for all

—  educate the poor

—  raise the minimum wage

Stupid.

Their very nature causes them to be poor:  their

—  culture

—  values

—  way of thinking or not thinking

Three options

—  change the poor

—  kill them

—  be destroyed by them

Your choice; your life.

Why Are Prices So High?

leave a comment »

Prices keep rising.

They never stop.

Is this situation normal?

No.

Government wants and works for price increases.

Government actions cause higher prices.

Laws and regulations.

And more laws and regulations.

And even more laws and regulations.

Laws and regulations serving absolutely one purpose: enhance government power.

These laws and regulations cost money.

Money coming out of your pocket through higher prices.

And still there is

—  poisonous food

—  dangerous toys

—  polluted environment

—  financial fraud

—  defective products

It is not going to stop.
