“when I was a kid…”

Mom fondly recalls going to a movie for a dime.

We hear it from old folks all the time:
… tank of gas for two bucks
… penny candy (non-GMO sugar)
… ten-cent loaf of bread
[real, organic, whole-wheat, non-GMO]

A dime like they used is worth four dollars today.

Four bucks still gets you into mid-day matinées
or a loaf of real bread
or a gallon of gas (which cost them an entire quarter).

The value of the dime, dollar, savings and all were stolen by the Feral Reserve who took over our money in 1913. A handful of banksters live large while our lifestyles continue to downsize.
