There is a reason that greed is considered one of the seven deadly sins. There are repercussions all around like the ripples in a pond when a stone is tossed in. Our country is experiencing a huge problem with greed and it starts at the top and works its way down to the average man.
We have long been manipulated by the big companies into thinking we have to have their products and services and it doesn't matter how much we have to pay. They use any excuse, or no excuse at all to raise prices and we pay unquestioningly, or when someone does question it, they get a bunch of lame excuses. Remember how the cost of gas went up a couple of years ago and everything went crazy. The food in grocery stores shot up, airplane flights soared, the cost of goods went crazy. When the gas prices went down, guess what? Food still went up airplane flights stayed high and the cost of everything just keep going up. And it continues to this day.
We live in scary times when our generation is the first to see a decrease in the standard of living since WWII. Our children may never have the opportunity to live the lifestyle that we have or should I say had.
We don't have to look far to see greed in action (Washington DC.) Corporations are making billions of dollars a year and apparently it's not enough, because prices just keep going up.
I makes me wonder if it will only end with the collapse of our way of life. How much money does one person or one company need to make before they say we are doing fine lets not raise prices? The world may never know.
Do you see the cost of living going up everyday like I do. Are you as nervous as me about where it will all end. It makes me fearful for my children and grandchildren.
