The Beat Goes On! PDF Print E-mail

Will there not be an end to soaring prices? Now it is happening to both gas and food. What is even worse is the gouging that is coming from both wholesalers and retailers. Recently, while traveling on US70 inside Lebanon, my wife and I stopped at a large grocery store to purchase an item. While there we purchased a box of crackers which was priced at $2.16. I remarked later that the four or five items which we eventually purchased seemed unusually high, resulting in my wife checking the receipt. Guess what? We were charged $3.19 for the crackers, not $2.16. I can’t help wondering how much of this goes on at the expense of food shoppers.

I can’t help but wonder how a man with a mediocre job is able to feed two or three children as well as himself and his wife. But don’t hold your breath until the Republicans and Democrats do something about it. They don’t really care. They don’t have to be selective when they go food shopping. Maybe a good boycott would help!

The beat goes on!

Here is something else. Suppose you wake up some morning to the news that America’s dollar has been devalued to only .50Ë and a new world currency will immediately replace this national currency.  You don’t believe it will happen? I hope you are right. But I think most Americans are suffering from the ostrich syndrome. I have news from reliable sources that a world currency is just around the corner. I hope my sources are wrong. One source says that America has been secretly working on this change for the last few years: I don’t doubt it because we have unfit men running this country. The rich may wake up one morning broke. Will the politicians in DC toy to preserve our currency or will they allow a world currency to be printed and used by the USA with the inscription on it: “ In Allah We Trust.”

The beat goes on!

A little girl asked her father a very serious question, “Daddy, do all fairy tales begin with, ‘Once upon a time’?”

The father somberly responded, “No, honey, a whole lot of fairy tales begin with, ‘If elected I promise…’”

And that is as far it ever gets. Little by little this country is being taken over by foreign powers and the monkeys in DC are doing nothing to stop it.

Then some educators are back on the kick that the earth just happened, and isn’t the work of God. Listen folks, there is about as good a chance that a monkey sitting at a computer hitting keys at random would accidentally produce the complete works of Shakespeare as there is that the universe came to be and is explained by chance.

The beat goes on! The fool population is on the increase.
