Societal Leech

In all honesty, I’m seriously thinking about getting back to the basics. I mean with the utility companies robbing everyone blind, I’m starting to see the light, pardon the pun.

For the longest time when I was a kid we had a milk cow, chickens, and a pig or two. We raised our own garden. We burnt wood and coal. We used coal-oil lamps for light. We had a hole cut in the side of the hill that had some of the freshest coldest water that I’ve ever drank. A hose was ran to it, and we pumped our water anytime we needed it. Even for bathing. We were very comfortable and was never hungry.

We had and antenna that picked up two or three channel and that’s back when everything was analog. Since it’s all went digital, I would think a person could pick up ten channels. My dad lives up near Cynthiana, and he gets more channels than he even watches, and they are HD since the signal is digital.

I’m dead serious when I say, I’m thinking about getting back to the basics. I’m tired of being robbed, and having the rich painting me as the problem.

The 1% say we're societal leeches.

I totally agree and have honestly thought this over many times!! If more ppls done it then it would become normal! I would rather be in that type environment rather than paying 300$ for elec then water and so on even if I kept the water and went the other things I would be great!!! Most def have thought about this!!
