Did you
hear the post office is
 
thinking
about charging 7 cents
 just to mail
a letter?
 

[] 
 

if they
raise the minimum wage
 
to $1.00, nobody will be able to
 hire

[]

 

When I
first started driving, who
 
would
have thought gas would
 someday cost
25 cents a gallon?
 Guess we'd be
better off leaving
 the car in the garage. 


[] 

 

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
 $50,000 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're 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
 
couples are going to have to hire
 someone to
watch their kids so
 they can both work. 

 

[]

 

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 government.

The fast
food restaurant is
 convenient
for a quick meal,
 but I seriously
doubt they
 will ever catch on.

There is
no sense going on short
trips
anymore for a weekend. 
It
 costs nearly $2.00 a night to
stay
 in a hotel. 
 

[]

 

No one can afford to be sick anymore. 
At $15.00 a day in
 the hospital,
it's too rich for
 my
blood.
 
[] 

 

If they think I'll pay 30 cents 
for a haircut, forget it.
