Just the other day I was paying a parking ticket I don't let the bastards catch me but I got one the other day and it was 60 dollars downtown center. Last time I paid a parking ticket it was 30 dollars two years ago. Same thing in the store when buying groceries. Which got me thinking is anyone else noticing drop in standard of living. My Internet bill went up my banking fees went up some of them doubled Again suicide bombers killed lot of people in Iraq. And few canucks died in Afghanistan. Politicians keep saying it'll get better for long time now both dems and republicans Are we moving in the right direction do you think. Vote your part I already voted so minus 1 for No we are not.
