Real History

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!
