To "JustGordon" you are living the lie.The fact is that
there has been quite a bit of inflation over the past 14 years.14
years ago gas was about $1/gallon, now it is over $3/gallon.Mil used
to be less than $2/gallon, now it is around $3Housing prices are
higher.Clothing costs are higher.Most everything costs
more now that it did 14 years ago.Since you don't believe
facts, I guess there isn't much point is directing you to "Current US
Inflation Rates: 2004-2014" at US Inflation Calculator that uses government
data to give us the Government's take on inflation over the past 10 years.
(Hint, it has ranged between 1% and 4.1%.)
There's been little if any inflation in the last 14 years, assertions or
statements to the contrary are contrary to the facts.The story about
the confiscation of one's 401k assets has been a reoccurring theme on
conservative talk shows for months. It is part of a plan to spread and increase
public distrust of their government that has no basis in fact. By repeating
relentlessly the same lies speculation has now become reality sadly of too many.
With the dollar's buying power becoming less and less as the Fed Res
floating the stock, There ain't no escape. What if the lone want equal
buying power when they lone you money plus interest. If inflation is at 10% and
interest is 5% and wages stay at 2%, How could you ever escape.
