I am pretty sickened by how much the prices keep going up on everything. Eventually there will very poor people and very rich people. There will be no middle class. I think that's what their (dems) plan is.

As money becomes more valueless, inflation happens. It would be from both sides of the political fence.

Prices is not the only problem, people are. I know of a woman that sold over $400 in girl scouts cookies. 95% of the people that she sold them to was poor and on food stamps. We see everyday people spend money like they are rich. To bad we could not get by with a land line phone that would cost like $30. today. We must have a cell phone or Ipad to text people on. To bad we have to have cable TV and internet. You get rich by saving and doing without everyday things. You save and make a return on what you save. That is the way most of middle income people gets "rich".

David, you are absolutely right. The cable companies are a joke. Cell phone companies, too.

It is not only Comcast. You seen the offers on TV and internet. They give you a package deal for the first year. After that you see your bill go up and up until you had enough and look for another deal. I have switch many times after the first year is up.

Yes. That happened to me. The first year was a great deal. But the cable more than doubled after that. Remember the days of rabbit ears on the TV? And maybe 4 channels!

Now come on people suck it up as Obama said tighten those belts and purse strings, ease up on living beyond your means, Unless of course you are the President of the United States or any Democrat in congress, Then you can take many vacations and bill the tax payers. You can never pass any budget as long as your in office as the Dems are still holding plenty of power in the Senate and white house. You can outspend every President before you with record amount of debt created by the Dem party and waste. You can still blame Reagan and Bush because most the teachers and academia are Liberal Progressives who teach Saul Alinsky Socialism and communism principals to the students, You can still blame GWB for high gas prices AND THOSE OIL SPECULATORS When Obama still wont allow more offshore oil drilling . You can make movies about how bad fracking is.Yet look at those high gas prices under Obama and his DEMS The same Dems and Obama who said it's just unpatriotic to have gas at $1.84 a gallon, A national debt at 6 trillion, Let's gas has not gone down sicne Obama took office or when He and his Dems had total power in congress. Average gas price on regular gallon is about $3.75 thats maybe one day then the next much higher. He hasn't suspended one gas tax at the pump.We now have 50 million people on welfare and food stamps that aren't even working unless they want to. Another 12 million still unemployed. I guess when you were born hopeless and envious, and jealous, Then you adore Obama who still vows to spread the wealth from top to bottom and bottom up.How you love those higher grocery prices also, Wait if you get food stamps, welfare and subsidized housing and extended once again unemployment benefits , Then you are on a life time Obama vacation. I guess you wouldn't care. As long as someone else pays for all you have, You are dumb enough to believe Obama as he lives like a King and God spending away your kids future and their grandkids futures and own kids.Don't worry it will crash down again soon even worse than the manufactured crash and crisis created by Shumer, Dodd, Franks, and Greenspan and Goldman sachs and AIG along with Fannie mae and Freddy mac . Look at wall street they are booming yet mainstreet is still dying off.

Still only get 4-5 channels. Get a converter box. Tv doesn't get turned on here anyway. Read a book. Library cards are free.

Now it is 100 channels when you pay for it with commercials that last as long as the programs. Then you channel surf to find something that is worth watching. Hint: I record almost everything I watch. That way I have a fast forward button for the commercials. I really could not tell you who advertize on any program.

Our economic woes can be traced back to Reagan and the Bushes. Tell the truth.

Before Reagan, my standard of living was pretty good. I now live like a refugee in a third world country.

That is why I can afford them now. I worked an saved for 45 years. I can do anything that I want. I wish I had a picture of a car that I drove for about 5 years until the floor rusted out. But it did the job.
