  • You modern day men should get a leather carry. I kid you not I won't go without one after being converted overseas and the size of my phone, wallet, keys, a pen, mints, etc., matters not since I don't have to carry any of it my pockets.

        That is somewhat misleading in that those items reflect only about 18% of the total CPI - however on the positive it looks like all items remained flat for July after a slight increase in June and 8.5% the past 12 months.

        • Fed employs recessionary policies, recession follows. What do you expect?

          We can't have the serfs getting paid too much, or be able to pick and choose their employers. Makes them a bit uppity.
          What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                • Reagan is when the Republicans started offering their voters the pure candy of tax cuts. Every serious economist knew this would lead to lethal inequality and plutocracy, but their voters were too dumb to realize what that meant and took it. Forty years later, the rich are at the top of a feudal state, exactly as the Republicans planned.

                  The single largest betrayal of this nation and its people, and all so that a couple thousand families could live like medieval lords.

                                I prefer Steppenwolf's "Monster"

                                Once the religious, the hunted and weary
                                Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
                                Came to this country to build a new vision
                                Far from the reaches of Kingdom and pope

                                Like good Christians some would burn the witches
                                Later some got slaves to gather riches

                                But still from near and far to seek America
                                They came by thousands, to court the wild
                                But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
                                To be their spirit and guiding light

                                And once the ties with the crown had been broken
                                Westward in saddle and wagon it went
                                And till the railroad linked ocean to ocean
                                Many the lives which had come to an end

                                While we bullied, stole and bought a homeland
                                We began the slaughter of the red man

                                But still from near and far to seek America
                                They came by thousands to court the wild
                                But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
                                To be their spirit and guiding light

                                The Blue and Grey they stomped it
                                They kicked it just like a dog
                                And when the war was over
                                They stuffed it just like a hog

                                And though the past has its share of injustice
                                Kind was the spirit in many a way
                                But its protectors and friends have been sleeping
                                Now it's a monster and will not obey

                                The spirit was freedom and justice
                                And its keepers seemed generous and kind
                                Its leaders were supposed to serve the country
                                But now they won't pay it no mind

                                Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
                                Now their vote is a meaningless joke
                                They babble about law and order
                                But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

                                Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
                                It's got our heads into the noose
                                And it just sits there watchin'

                                The cities have turned into jungles
                                And corruption is stranglin' the land
                                The police force is watching the people
                                And the people just can't understand

                                We don't know how to mind our own business
                                'Cause the whole world's got to be just like us
                                Now we are fighting a war over there
                                No matter who's the winner we can't pay the cost

                                'Cause there's a monster on the loose
                                It's got our heads into the noose
                                And it just sits there watchin'

                                America, where are you now
                                Don't you care about your sons and daughters
                                Don't you know we need you now
                                We can't fight alone against the monster

                                America, where are you now
                                Don't you care about your sons and daughters
                                Don't you know we need you now
                                We can't fight alone against the monster
