Its part of the plan.

While the government gets busy taking our freedom away, the people get busy trying to live, so less people have the time to do anything. Essentially they are creating even more of a slave society.

I am working more hours then ever before because of the rising prices of gas, food and services. Service based businesses are upping their prices to compensate for the gas prices, but the average employees salary remains the same. If the prices of food gas and services keep rising the salaries must rise as well, but that doesn't happen. Employer's care about themselves more them the employees. Its a recipe for disaster, and if this keeps up then our nation will soon join the ranks of third world countries, all except the politicians, they will still be rich.

I kinda disagree with you about employers not caring that prices are going up, and not raising their workers' salaries accordingly. I think it's just the corporations that get off on paying minumum wage, so the CEO's at the top end up with millions!

From what I have seen, around my area, and on this forum... Most honest business owners are taking direct hits by the economy. They cannot raise their employees' wages because they themselves are taking losses, and their prices of everything is going up, and their business is going down. People don't have the disposeable income they used to, to keep local businesses in business.
