That’s only 56 years ago! 

Comments made in the year 1955!

‘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 $10.00.
‘Have you seen the new cars coming out next year?  It won’t be long before 
$1, 000.00 will only buy a used one.’ 
 
‘If cigarettes keep going up in price, I’m going to quit; 20 cents a pack is ridiculous.  
‘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 outside help at the store.’


‘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 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 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.’
 
‘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 hair cut, forget it.’

America the decline of an Empire.

This video is 20 min of a talk show call "Open Mind" where Judge Waring and Martin Luther King speaks about the success of their cause which is bringing the negro in America and mostly in the south to the status of first class citizens.

Judge Waring says something that I thing is of great importance, I paraphrase;

- As American,We the people have rights.
These rights are not giving to us they are OURS.
The court system doesn't go around telling us what our rights are,
 but it tells us that we are American Citizens and as such
 it is our duty to know these rights and exercise them.-
A country's  destiny is in the hands of its people.  It is its people who will raise its status and it is also its people who will bring it down.

Hundred of thousands of Americans fought and died during the Civil War for these rights. Things today we taking for granted such as the inherent right of everyone for freedom, justice and the pursue of happiness.

But like most great enlighten Empires before, when the majority of its people become lazy with leisure and find more time for the entertainment arena then been part of the political arena it is just a matter of time for its decline leaving room for the next enlighten country to rise?...  Who will that be?  China? Russia? The Middle East?  What do you think.
