It's a fact. No media needed.
Everything I buy from motorcycle parts to food has increased across the board, while quality has plummeted. Plus, our fine state raised feeees on everything regarding auto registration, plus the sales tax ....... they succeeded in taxing my satellite TV, & I'm starting to get the "trickle-down-taxes" from Verizon, because MA decided to tax their once exempt land. Businesses are just passing the taxes on to us by raising their prices. My homes value has plummeted, yet my property taxes continue to rise at the max prop. 2.5% . And to top it all off, I get to pay ANOTHER DAMN FEE TO FISH IN THE OCEAN!!!
I've become poorer than ever just in this past year.
