journal #2

laying in bed pondering the events of the day, i often find myself contemplating the rising cost of living and how i’m gonna live comfortable in the future. Every day it seems like prices go up and my wages stay steady why is this? what is the government doing and what can i do? why is there inflation are we steadily running out of all resources?

when is was little it seemed like with my dollar would buy me oodles of candy. Now my dollar gets me a snickers that bearly satisfies my sugar needs. It seems like with all this rising cost wages sure find a way to remain steady. the minimum wage has gone up like fifty cents in my life time. On the other side gas gas has gone up almost two dollars in the last couple of years.

With all this new technology everyday you would think they could keep a loaf of bread at a dollar. I often just wonder how i’m gonna pay my bills and i just pay for my car and school. I don’t know how i’m gonna pay for a house and a family when the time comes if i can bearly make it on my own. Not to mention costs we’ll be up in another two or three years when i’m ready for those things. This is a problem i think all people are concerned with. Unless your gonna live off of mommy and daddy your whole life, but they still get troubled by this.

Is inflation due to decreasing resourses or a greedy government? If our resources are running out shouldn’t we be conserving more. If the government just wants more money how can we as a people be letting this happen. Are we as a people so ignorant that we expect the government will do whats best for us and follow blindly. Or should we get educated so that we’re not getting walked all over.
