Comments made in the year 1955:

"I’ll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it’s
going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $20."

"Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won’t be long before
$2000 will only buy a used one."

"If cigarettes keep going up in price, I’m going to quit. A quarter a
pack is ridiculous."

"Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to
mail a letter?"

"If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire
outside help at the store."

"When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday
cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the

"Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts make it impossible
to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as
long as the girls."

"I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let
Clark Gable get by with saying ‘damn’ in ‘Gone With The Wind,’ it seems
every new movie has either "hell" or "damn" in it.

"I read the other day where some scientist thinks it’s possible to put a
man on the moon by the end of the century They even have some fellows
they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas."

"Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for
$75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn’t surprise me if someday
they’ll be making more than the president."

getting divorced at the drop of a hat."

"I’m just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole
lot of foreign business."

"Thank goodness I won’t live to see the day when the Government takes
half our income in taxes.. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best
people to government."

"The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously
doubt they will ever catch on."

"There is no sense going to Lincoln or Omahaanymore for a weekend. It
costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel."

"No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in the hospital is too
rich for my blood."

"If they think I’ll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it."

tax refund


The federal government is sending each and everyone of us approximately between a $300 – $1,200 rebate.

If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China.

If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.

If we purchase a computer it will go to India.

If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala.

If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan.

If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan … and none of it will help the American economy.

The only way to keep that money here at home is to buy prostitutes, weed, beer, and tattoos, since these are the only products still produced in the USA.

Thank you for your help & please support the USA!
