I remember when it was about 50 cents a loaf, and that was before Reagan. I didn't do much grocery shopping before that. Although I do remember getting bread 4 loaves for $1 at the wonder bakery outlet store from time to time.
But I guess that is all Obama's fault too.
All I know for sure, is that out of all the Presidents from and including Reagan, the Republican presidents have increased spending a hell of a lot more than the democrats have, and the Democrats spent it on we the people, not on wars.
Problem is, a non conflict economy is a recessionary economy with high unemployment, sort of what we are experiencing now........ but wait, Iran will get stupid anyday now and we will be back in a conflict economy......
Obama inherited inflation but I don't see him doing anything about reducing it, in fact, he is increasing it.
When I was a kid, milk was delivered in glass bottles with cream on the top, put in an asbestos lined box on your porch to keep it cold, delivered in a little truck or ocassionally, a horse drawn wagon when the truck was broken. The bakery up the street (I was raised on the west side of Cleveland arond West 130th street BTW) baked fresh bread every day. Raisin bread, fresh sliced and warm was 30 cents a loaf, white was 25 cents. I still remember the slicer machine, the loaf went in one side whole and came out the other....sliced. It went into a waxed paper sack.
Bread today comes in a plastic bag and when it was baked is anyone's guess or where it was baked for that matter. Life was simpler back then. I still remember Dwight Eisenhower BTW
I walked to school, elementary, middle and high school and only in the dead of winter, I took the bus. Bus was Cleveland Transit System or now RTA. There were no school busses to pick you up at your house. We had a dress code and respected our parents and teachers. No one respects anything or anyone today. people are all about themselves and thats it.
Sorry about getting off on a tangent. Obama is still an idiot. Actually, so it Rummy. Rummy is just the lesser of the idiots. You'd think that after 4 years of blundering around, people like you could see he's an oaf, but then, it's the party thing and the differentiation between being a republican and a democrat and whats right and what isn't and what time the sun will come up...........
All while we continue to go down the toilet.
