the cheapening of America; they are devouring from the inside out
if you go back some 30 or so years you will find that ABC (or was it NBC) TV news had a segment called "the Fleecing of America".. well today I call it "the Cheapening of America"

if you remember, that guy a few years back. how he got piss'ed off at me for getting down on the rich, well it's easy to see that the rich are now devouring their own products from the inside out for more profit !
it's a sad thing to see, it's a sad thing to know !

I have found over the last few years that many of the older, better quality food companies that have been around for 60, 70 or more years are now lowing the quality of their food. rather boxed, caned or bagged foods.

and this goes for many of the older coffee brands. they have lowered the quality of their coffee.
don't think this has gone unnoticed !! people get piss'ed off if you mess with their coffee !! I have talked to people in the stores that have noticed it too.

to add. we ordered/bought a new "quality brand name" crockpot off the net. well, because of all the crap that's out there I wanted a quality brand. go figure. what's a quality brand today ? when we received it I opened the box to find that the ceramic Inset was only half glazed. I called the company and they sent me a 2nd crockpot free. good going I figured. got it and washed it up and put the food in it and turned it on. guess-what, it only cooked for 3+ hours and it shut itself off and never worked again. so what did I do, I took the heating unit from the first crock to finish cooking the food.
question) so the question here is> "how crappy can 2 brand new crockpots be out of the box" ?
answer) pretty crappy !!

they are doing it people, it has come to the point where the rich are now devouring their own products from the inside out. it'd been going on a long time. but now it's showing worse than ever.

and the big name burger joint, has now down sized their patties even smaller.

you know, my father-in-law had 5 kids, owned a house, cars, insurance and all that came with owning a house and he never made more than $7 an hour until the last year of his life, that one year he made $10 an hour. if you are wondering, my mother-in-law babysat.

let me tell you, if the rich are now showing more and more signs of eating their selves from the inside out, you know things are only going to get worse.

good luck people !

I went to buy a new chair for my desk. haa, the price for the same chair has increased $50, I can see the price going up $10 or even $15, but not $50. that's crazy.

the people from out-of-state that have money come into my home town and buy summer houses for $20,000, $30,000 more than the asking prices. they make these offers to a-sure they get the house. my friend sold his house for $20,000 more than his asking price.
while it's good for the seller, it raises property taxes for the retired people and others with fixed incomes. houses in these areas that sold for $80,000 25 years ago sell for $260,000 or more today. now put that $20,000 or $30,000 on top of that.

I know some one that has a camp on a lake up here, today he pays more in taxes on it than what he payed for it. but he can afford it so he keeps it.
I know about another house on the same lake that sold for $160,000, 8 years later it was worth $375,000. that 375 was 8 years ago, today it must be worth around $600,000. maybe 700 ???

for the last 4 years my friend has been saying "if things keep going as they are, in 100 years America will have become a 3rd word country",, I can see that coming, can you.
