Bear with me as there are several points I am going to make before getting to my point....
This thread makes me reflect further on a couple things I read and commented on. In one thread someone was discussing how so long as there are
"creature comforts" no one will do anything about the things we are faced with today, to which I replied:
Do you notice the price of just food and the difference just a couple years have made?
I used to be able to feed two people well back in 2007-2008 for 75.00 a week.... could buy any meats within reason, fruits and salads and vegetables
as well as the basic bathroom supplies and house cleaners for that 75.00. The money went far and you ate good for that.
Now if all you have is 75.00 to spend you are not getting any fruit that is not bananas because any other kind of fruit is too expensive, you are
eating casseroles because they stretch (no more roast!) salad is a thing of the past as you cant fit it into the budget and vegetables are only the
cheapest you can find.
This is what we are facing, and it is only 5 years later. Havent you noticed this in your own budget? At this rate of grocery store inflation, soon
many will be unable to eat, and wont qualify for any financial assistance because they make too much money...... what happens then?
creature comforts will soon be a thing of the past for many!
Then I read a thread about Miami making it easier to incarcerate the homeless for fulfilling basic needs with no home...
And now this thread and it makes you think.... are they considering culling the homeless population and making people used to the idea and complacent
about it? Later to cull the "unproductive" poor and make the rest so busy trying to survive that they don't have time to question the powers that be?
We seem headed that way... and fast
Important to note the Roman's "bread and circus"..... our circus is the internet... and in my area they just started giving away basic internet...
