I love to shop, but with all the financial anxiety and economic uncertainty I stay out of stores except for groceries. I still love new clothes, hair appointments, manicures, and pedicures. I love Christmas and giving gifts and having parties and going out to dinner. But being a prudent person, I can’t justify doing any of those things anymore. What used to cost my hubby $80 to travel to the Bay Area now costs him $150. There went my hair appointment ~ sucked into the Obamasphere~ SWOOSH! GONE!
A lot of the younger generation hasn’t seen this variety of economic times. They have never seen the gasoline lines in the late ‘70’s when cars were lined up for blocks to get a fill up. When you wonder what will happen next, all you have to do is think about what came after Carter’s presidency: Inflation on all consumer goods. Then came the high interest rates with 20% interestto buy a house. Yes, 20%! Houses were cheaper then, but with interest rates like that they became very expensive very quickly. When you combine instability in the economy with prices constantly going up, it only adds to uncertainty and anxiety.
Only .08% of Obama’s advisers come from the business segment, all from the elite erudite world of Ivy League college campuses. Most of them never had to truly survive on their own; doors were opened either by privilege or some quota needed.
Which reminds me–we really need change right now and that change is not more Obama! A vote for four more years of this current president will mean more and more of my empty old purses, old shoes, old everything. We cannot legislate an economy into prosperity without good jobs and a good economy. We cannot give away our prosperity and “share any pie” if we can’t afford to buy the pie ingredients at Obama’s inflated and bloated prices. If he has four more years, we are doomed to twenty years of poverty. Period.
The fact that Congress and the Obama administration have acted like drunken sailors on holiday with our money and tax dollars for the past 3.5 years doesn’t help. They are out of touch. All of us citizens have been cutting back, and doing without and paying for all of their incompetence. Maybe we could give them all some lessons on doing without; I know I could! The ostentation and cluelessness is deep on both sides of the aisle and all our politicians are driving this trillion-dollar buss over a cliff and every citizen is on that bus! And strangely, they actually seem to be enjoying the ride.
Are you? We need a fiscally prudent President of the United States this time; someone who’ll cut up the credit cards and who’ll tighten the belt. We need someone who knows we won’t die from eating eggs when what we really want is a steak or a pork chop and that person is Mitt.
