Real history is indispensable to understanding what is happening to you and your way of life. Real history does not refer to last week, month or year. Sure, you can focus on changes between these periods but they tend to be slight and the big picture is missed. Here is an email that I received (and yes, it is a time I remember) that reveals what you need to know. Think you aren’t being played by your government?
Some day in the future someone will write an email or its equivalent reflecting back to this time (if the country survives) that will look eerily similar to this one.
THE YEAR WAS 1955.. (If I hadn’t lived through it, I wouldn’t believe it myself.)
Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter?
If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.
When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon? Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.
Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn’t surprise me if someday they’ll be making more than the President.
I never thought I’d see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They’re even making electric typewriters now.
It’s too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.
It won’t be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.
I’m afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.
Thank goodness I won’t live to see the day when the government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government. =
The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.
There is no sense going on short trips any more for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel .
No one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it’s too rich for my blood.
If they think I’ll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.
Know any friends who would get a kick out of these, pass this on! Be sure and send it to your kids and grandkids, too!
