Comments made in the year 1955!
That's only 53 years ago!

'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 $20.00.

'Have yo u seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $2, 000.00 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 $1.00, 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 garage.

'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.

'I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now.

'It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.

'It won't be long before young c ouples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

'Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more, those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat.

'I'm 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 congress.

'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 Omaha anymore for a weekend, it costs nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

'No one can afford to be sick anymore, at $35.00 a day in the hospital it's too rich for my blood.

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

Know any friends who would get a kick out of these, pass this on! Be sure and send it to your kids and grandkids too!

The only way they are going to take near half is if you win the lottery. Outside of a that theyre are so many loopholes... for instance did you know that the neverland ranch (if still owned by him) guards Jackson's children against the death tax? That and that the government paid Michael Jackson to not plant crops... Thats right you can get paid for that (its to keep the price of produce up).

The rich don't pay what you think they do in taxes... they would if not for all these loopholes.

Been there, done that, lived through it. 1955 is when Elvis came on the scene big time. 954 it snowed in Azusa, Calf, 4 months later the damb broke flooding the town.
