I was talking to the tile/flooring guy today. He makes about $18 per hour for his work. That comes out to $36K per year. His 1998 GMC Pickup has 150K miles on it and just cost him $85 to fill up and that will last him under a week. That is right at 250% what it was in 2001 when Bush took office. His wages have gone up from $14-18.
So he's like, fucked. Time to buy a new ride. Here's a picture of something that will fit his budget, and the guy who will be getting his job:
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
