    do you really believe what GovCo is telling you? In 1930 you could byt a car for $500 (paper) or 25 $20 gold coins. Today you can buy a car for $32,500.00 (paper) or 25 $20 gold coins. And you believe that inflation is only 1%? Why did a loaf of bread cost $0.10 in 1930 and now costs $2.00, a 1900% increase? STOP BELIEVING THE LIARS AND THIEVES COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS GOVERNMENT...

    Inflation does not stop.If your pay stays the same for the length of this absurd 5yr proposal.What you are somewhat comfortably affording now.Will be uncomfortable each year after up to the 5th year.Many have lost their homes,family already.But the executive bonuses keep on coming.

    Those 25 $20 gold coins are worth a whole lot more than $20 each today! :duh:

    Wow Rex, if you started working in 1930 and you're still working today I'd sure like to know what kind of meds you're on. :biglaugh:

    Rex may be wrong with his comparison but he is correct about the inflation rate. I don't care what our government says the rate is, you only have to get out there and see for yourself. With pay cuts and no raises there is no way a working man can possibly keep up! Five years is a long time with a loaf of bread around $4.00 now. Don't ask me for a list of everything that has went up in costs. We would be here a long time. I wonder how the government comes up with these charts. It sure isn't the same way a working man does.:452:

    You are correct hairs2u.not that i begrudge top executives their type of salary with bonuses.When keeping wages stagnant or no real wage increases for 5yrs.i ask lets be reasonable.No reasoning on behalf of top management when it comes to cutting their feed from the trough.

    Our Fiat currency is only worth what people belive it's value is. With the past 50 years of promised entitlements and borrowing and printing we're following both the Weimar Republic and Zimbabwe models. Zimbabwe printed a trillion whatever paper bill. Workers under Weimar had to be paid three times a day so they could buy 4 trillion DeutscheMark a loaf bread before the price rose again. The Fed monetizing our Public Debt can't end well. Carter added 1/3rd the money supply and caused 22% interest. Obama has more than Doubled ours. It will collapse...
