I was so upset today when I passed through a toll booth and noticed that the price was increased from $0.75 to $1, that I decided to explode my protest by blogging about it.
If you watch TV or read the news, you get a notion that the Government is trying to find a solution for the crisis, but I cannot understand how, if everything is going up, with the knowledge and authorization from them.
Here in my city, I read that the local government authorized the power and light companies to raise their rates because people were saving, using less energy, and then it turned out that the companies were making less money. So they authorized the raise, causing my eletric bill being higher than last months when I spent more energy. So I am consuming less and paying more.
I don’t smoke, but my wife does. Her cigarette pack went from $2.75 to $4.95 plus tax. Property taxes went up. Toll went up. Gasoline went up. Everything is going up. My salary is frozen since last year. I did not receive my annual adjustment. Thanks God I still have a job!.
So please, stop hypocrisy, don’t try to make me believe they want to fix it. If they wanted, they would have frozen at least what they have control. I’m talking about all sorts of government, federal, state and municipal.
Since this is a technical blog, I apologize for my explosion !! Let’s keep the hope things will get better and pray for not having booze going up too.
