Times are really hard right now. A lot of people are out of work. Jobs are cutting the amount of employees they need, or sending the jobs to foreigners (which pisses me off more than anything), or closing down because of slow business, putting more and more people in the unemployment line. I get so pissed off when I go to the grocery store. Why is it that the prices keep going up, up, up, and the quantity goes down, down, down? Do they think people are too stupid to notice that the amount of food they get in a package is going down while the price is going up? In these hard economic times, the big companies still like to bend us over and give it to us hard, making their pockets fatter while making ours smaller. What is a family supposed to do? Is mom supposed to go stand on the corner just for grocery money now?? I mean, seriously, how is this even RIGHT?
I was watching something on TV today, wasn't really paying attention to it until I heard them talking about the price increase. They were talking about Thanksgiving dinners and how the prices have gone up since last Thanksgiving. The cost of Turkey, fruits, and vegetables has gone up 7% since last year, while the cost of white potatoes has gone up something like 23 f'n percent! This shit is just ridiculous! People NEED to eat!! It's not an option. I'm so tired of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.
It's obvious the government doesn't care about us "little people" and neither do the big companies out there. We are just invisible little pee-ons that don't mean shit in their eyes. Welcome to corporate America. Bite my fat ass.
