Making Ends Meet

15 04 2008

Aunt B. and I are on the same page. We both keep talking about this, of course she says it better than I ever could, but this is a reality.

We were, in effect, not making it.  And I often stood in my kitchen crying and singing over and over to myself “Everything’s going to be all right” at first straight from “No Woman, No Cry” and then, over time, it became it’s own song, with a tune far removed form Marley.

Still, we weren’t paying five bucks a gallon for milk or three bucks a gallon for gas.

Read the rest of her very candid post and I want to add. Time are lean for so many people.

Why aren’t others making it into a political debate when the facts are people, working people, are having a rough time?

This perplexes me to no end.

It’s hard, I know, we know. And the worst part is that the people who really have it the worst are virtually voiceless and are the least capable of dealing with finding the answers. Lower education, limited opportunity, lowest rung on economic ladder, they fall off first and nobody cares. They work the hardest for their money and show the least result.
Sadly, with gas prices, I read somewhere that there are studies in use by the oil companies that show the average citizen is not willing to dramatically decrease their comsumption levels until gas is over $5.00/gallon. That price will bankrupt most middle class Americans, but the middle and lower classes aren’t that big of a concern for big oil. We’re not their demographic.
