Life in the cheap lane.

You know in the past few months I’ve narrowed my “blog reading list” down to less than a handful.  I pared it down to the core peeps,  ya know the ones that really, really matter? They are a good sampling of things across the world, which gives me a good over all perspective of how the world is doing, I feel.  It’s not the usual spin that the newspapers put in or the spin that the television news people put on..it’s what’s happening to the average everyday person.  Of late, I have noticed these things:

The price of food is rising.

The price of energy is rising

The lack of employment is rising.

The lack of health is rising.

The thing is….there is very little people can do about it.  I’ve come to the conclusion that the world is in one of it’s transitional phases…and truly there is nothing to be done because the world now runs on a total financial based structure. Bottom line..there is not enough money coming back to the people for them to spend to keep the economies going.

If any of you have read your Roman history…you will see…we are now starting the beginning of the deline and fall of the Roman Empire.  The parallels are staggering!

    Yeah, and we don’t have lead pipes to blame for it, either. *sigh* Every time we go to the grocery or to buy pet food, things have been raised another 30 cents here, 50 cents there. And we buy mostly generic stuff! If things keep up as they are, people are going to start stealing just to survive. They’re not giving people any other options.

    Sometimes, I wonder if the Mayans were right. If things continue as they are, the state of the world is going to be pretty darn terrible by the end of 2012…

    Hell, look at yours and my statuses right now. With in a year, we went from being able to buy just about what ever the hell we wanted, to having to watch every penny and not even thinking about eating out.
