Notice the six silver dollars on the Newspaper. On the right you see the headline "Fed slices rate again amid push for relief." The word constipation comes to mind.
You only need three of those silver dollars to fill your gas tank. Remember back to when gas was 25 cents a gallon? It's even cheaper if you use "Yesterday's" money! Those six silver dollars represent a hundred dollar bill in today's world.
This gives you some idea of what FDR's new deal programs like Social Security have done to the Country. The government can't cover all of its operating expenses so we print the rest.
The name of the game is inflation; a very slow and despicable disease. It's a tax on people who save. Gas is cheaper now, than it was in 1960. The real headline is "Wake-up America!"
Reality can be a cruel mistress. It's kind of like going to a casino that advertises High returns, Hot slots and Hell of a lot in action, and you walk out broke. If you have ever looked at an enema hand book, the instructions read; High, Hot and Hell of a lot. Either way, you get it in the end. Let's hope everything comes out alright.
