The Most Important Theme of ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad”

Rich Dad, Poor Dad revolves around three main characters: poor dad, rich dad (Robert T. Kiyosaki’s second father) and the son (the author himself as narrator of the book). The essence of each character is:

  • Poor dad – educated but lacking the street smarts
  • Rich dad – very little education (eighth grade), tons of street smarts
  • Kiyosaki – the spectator who learns lessons from both but internalizes only rich dad’s traits

The story of Robert Kiyosaki and Mike starts in 1956 Hawaii, when both boys were a nine years old. Their first get-rich scheme was a counterfeit nickel making company. They made plaster molds of the nickels and melted lead toothpaste tubes and filled the molds to produce the nickels. Their plan was foiled by Mike’s father, who informed the boys of their illegal activity.

After that day, the boys dedicated their free time to leaning about finance and economics from Mike’s father, the rich dad. The first lesson Mike’s dad made the boys experience was hatred of the “Rat Race”. He was able to achieve this by making the boys work in one of his grocery stores for three hours for ten cents an hour pay. Within a few weeks, Kiyosaki, tired of being exploited for labor, demanded that he receive a raise, but instead, Mike’s father cut his pay and told him to work for free.

Eventually, both boys tired of being under appreciated (and unpaid) and they met individually with Mike’s father. In their meetings with rich dad, he apologized for lack of pay and he offered them either the moral of the lesson or a pay raise. Both boys chose to learn the moral of the lesson, while rich dad offered them pay raises. He started at twenty-five cents, a dollar, two dollars, and even five dollars, which would have been considered a large amount of money for an hourly wage, but the boys still remained strong with their decision to learn the moral of the lesson.

The lesson to get out of the “Rat Race” and instead of spending your whole life working to put a little money in your pocket and a bunch of money in someone else’s pocket, have people work hard to put money in your pocket. Out of all the lessons that were taught to the boys, this one was the most important.

Poor Dad

The author compares his poor dad to the millions of fathers who encourage their sons to do well in school so they could get a good job with a good company. Poor dad believed in the traditional principles of working hard, saving money, and not buying material things that one cannot afford. He believed that having a good job with a solid company is what one should aspire for; hence he expresses disappointment when his son leaves the employ of a large, reputable corporation.

Poor dad looks to education as the passport to success. He held a doctorate degree, went to Ivy League universities, but was always struggling financially. He believed he would never be a rich man and the author points out that this became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Poor dad was more interested in a good education than the subject of money. The author wrote that his poor dad would always say things like, “I’m not interested in money” or “money doesn’t matter.”

The author points out that poor dad was preoccupied with things like job tenure and security, Social Security, vacation and sick leaves, company insurance and salary raises and promotions. The author felt that his poor dad was more interested in these factors rather than on the job itself. This is what the author calls being trapped in the Rat Race.

His poor dad worked hard incessantly but somehow never made it ahead financially. Poor dad’s approach to the subject of money was based on working hard to have enough money to pay the bills (in contrast to rich dad’s approach to make one’s money work for him).

Rich Dad

The author wrote that it was when he was nine years old that he started realizing that his rich dad made much more sense than his poor dad. It was from rich dad that the author learned not to say, “I can’t afford it”, but instead to ask, “how can I afford it?” He explains this principle by relating an incident when he and his best friend Mike went to work for Mike’s father. Rich dad paid them very low wages deliberately so that would stir anger and a sense of injustice in them and eventually for them to realize that in order to get ahead, one must work for himself and not for others.

For example, in that part of the book when the author complains to rich dad that he can hardly afford to buy anything with the wages he is paid, rich dad tells him that he shouldn’t dwell on the fact that his wages are low, but instead ask “how can I make more money” because this stimulates the brain to take action. His rich dad says that when someone says, “I can’t afford it”, his brain stops working. It therefore kills initiative and promotes passivity.

The author adds that while his poor dad invested time and effort in education, he did not have any knowledge on investing. His rich dad, by contrast, was very skilled in the investment game because that’s all he did. The attitude of his rich dad about money was manifested in the saying “the lack of money is the root of all evil” (his poor dad, on the other hand, believed that the love of money is the root of all evil).

According to the author, rich dad also nurtured the idea that taxes punished producers and rewarded the non-producers. He was the type who encouraged money talk at the dinner table and was portrayed by the author as someone who learned to manage risk, instead of not taking risks.

The Son (Robert T. Kiyosaki)

The author takes a common sense approach to the subject of money and emphasizes the need for accounting knowledge so that the reader clearly understands what assets and liabilities are. He makes simple diagrams that show the inflow and outflow of money and how the rich build up the asset column and the poor build up the liability column (expenses). It is obvious that the author places much importance on accounting knowledge – no matter how boring it is – because he says it is “the most important subject in your life.”

By using numerous examples and anecdotes, the author drives home his messages effectively, revealing his pro-capitalist stance.

The author also shows his understanding of the mechanisms employed by the government and the tax man and concludes that it is the middle class that actually pay for the poor. The rich are the ones who are hardly taxed because they have the knowledge to use tax legislation to their advantage.

A Primary Theme in Rich Dad, Poor Dad

One theme that’s apparent in this book is that for an individual to be wealthy, he must aim to own the system or means of production, rather than work for another individual. The author stresses that there is obviously something confining about being an employee; it shuts the mind to other possibilities and it stunts initiative.

Financial intelligence is THE most powerful asset. By studying the precepts of accounting and investing, the author believes that individuals will be able to see the difference between an asset and a liability; in fact it is the more concrete application of learning what’s right and what’s wrong. Generating a string of expenses is wrong, building assets is right.

Unlike individuals who earn and then pay taxes on what they earn, corporations earn, spend what they want to spend, and pay taxes on what’s left. Corporations, therefore, hold a certain degree of power. The rich know how to use this power, the poor don’t.

The author also believes that true luxuries are experienced when they are the outward manifestations of intelligent investing and asset building. He cites the example of his wife purchasing a Mercedes Benz because it was the car she liked and worked hard to be able to purchase it. The author cautions however about keeping up with the Joneses and getting into debt because of this human frailty.

Fear, laziness, cynicism and arrogance are to be blamed for most of human inaction.

As Food Costs Reach All Time Highs Use Smart & Easy Shopping Tips

Food prices have seen about a 20 percent increase in prices, the highest cost increases since the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) began measuring it three decades ago.

Their Food Price Index is bleak enough, but the United States forecast (USDA) indicates much more increases will follow.

Tips for Grocery Shopping

Note: As a 25-year executive for the highest rated grocery chain in America, writer Jack Dennis was over the Facilities Management Division of H-E-B FOOD/DRUGS. The Texas based retailer is prominently known for their friendly people, clean facilities and good prices.

The Tuesday Benefit

If you want to shop on the least crowded day of the week, pick Tuesdays. Often you may find discounts on meats, chicken and packaged produce that are close to their expiration date. We select such items that are freezeable at a cost of 25% to 50% off regular prices.

Never Shop Hungry!

Plan your grocery shopping trips to take place after a meal, or at least an hour or two before the next one. If you shop when you’re hungry, you’re much more likely to come away with food and snacks you didn’t plan on buying.

Even if the price increase is subtle, the yearly cost for your weekly supermarket trips will be substantially more. If you depend on restaurant take-out and delivery, the price surges will be even more eye-opening.

Keep your mind and body focused on the food you need. Don’t fall victim to the traps of grocery store marketing and product placement.

🔹Make a list of the items you intend to purchase to keep you on track.

🔹Plan your meals. Prepping a batch of meals will save on time, money, and unneeded calories.

Pick The Shortest Line

No one likes waiting in a long line at the checkout stand. Experience shows it is best to choose the line with the least amount of people in it, regardless of how full their carts or baskets might be.

At H-E-B and some other chains, checkers are graded by their IPMs (Items Per Minute) across the checkstands. It takes at least a minute or two to check someone out, even if they’re buying just a couple of things. Each item only adds about 3 seconds to the total checkout time, so a cart full of items doesn’t actually take that much longer to scan.

Look Up (And Down)

Only about one-third of in-store purchases are generally preplanned. Believe me when I say grocers and product experts know where shoppers look and even which patterns their gazes follow, in order to find the optimum position for products and to drive sales.

There’s a time tested adage in the grocery industry: “Eye level is the buy level.” These shelves are prime real estate at stores, but not every manufacturer can afford to stock their products there. When you’re shopping, be sure to scan the higher and lower shelves too.

When you see items on a supermarket shelf, you are actually looking at a planogram. These are diagrams that indicate the placement of products to maximize sales.

Get Cheese Sliced

Some of the best prices on cheese are on large blocks of it, but if you’re using it for sandwiches or burgers, slicing it at home can be a hassle. Instead, head over to the deli counter and ask if they’ll slice it for you.

Be Sure About Savings

If your grocery store has a 10 for $10 promotion on an item or items, be sure to check the original price of the item. While it probably won’t be that much more than $1, you definitely want to be sure it wasn’t less.

Use Meat Department Services

The meat department at your store may offer free services that many customers don’t even know about. Most butchers are willing to slice, tenderize, trim, and even grind cuts of meat for you. All you have to do is ask.

Compare Seafood Prices

When checking out the offerings at the seafood counter, look at the small type on the labels. If a product is labeled “previously frozen,” it’s worth it to head to the frozen section of the store to compare the two prices. Occasionally seafood is slightly cheaper when still frozen, so it’s an easy way to save some cash.

Coupons

Of course, couponing is still a good idea as long as it is for an item or brand you need. Don’t forget to check in-store and online coupons.

Check The Clearance Shelves

Keep an eye out for your grocery store’s clearance section and visit it often. The marked down items you’ll find there are not necessarily about to expire—the store or the manufacturer may be discontinuing them.

Don’t Assume Bulk Is Cheaper

You know what they say about assumptions, and it’s just as true when it comes to bulk pricing. While larger quantities do often cost less, that isn’t always the case—for instance, produce items like peppers, apples, and avocados are often cheaper when purchased individually than in pre-packaged bags.

A Cashless Society–Something to Think Seriously About

🔹A cashless society means no cash. Zero.

🔹It doesn’t mean mostly cashless and you can still use a little bit now and then, here and there.

🔹Cashless means fully digital, completely traceable, automatically controlled.

A Cashless Society Means:

🔹No more tuck away cash for those preparing to leave domestic violence.

🔹No more purchases off market without risking bank transfer fraud.

🔹No more garage sales.

🔹No more cash donations to the homeless or the hungry you might encounter.

Popular political cartoon

🔹No more cash slipped into the hands of a child from their grandparent.

🔹No more money in birthday cards.

🔹No more piggy banks or tooth fairy for your child.

🔹No more selling bits and pieces from your home that you no longer want or need for a bit of cash in return.

🔹More difficult to tip your server, doorman, driver, luggage handler, concierge, etc.

🔹Less choices of where you shop based on affordability.

What a Cashless Society Does Guarantee:

🔹Banks and the government has full control of every single cent you own.

🔹Every transaction you make is recorded.

🔹You become more susceptible to failures and hackers.

🔹You remain susceptible to cyber threats.

🔹Your movements and actions become much more traceable.

🔹Today you can purchase whatever you want. In a cashless society, you may be limited to what the government (or regulatory agencies) allow you to purchase: rations, fuel, guns, food, medicine, etc.

Successful Tips to Fight This Massive Inflation

The nation is suffering and with inflation only increasing, on top of already high fixed-monthly expenses, our paychecks just are not going as far.

🔹In 2021, only 39% of Americans could afford an unexpected $1,000 expense. The immediate future looks to be even more challenging.

Making your dollar stretch further is a personal long-term task. Rather, it is a lifestyle change. With hard work and dedication, your mind and wallet will exponentially grow if you remember only a few items from this money-saving list.

Set Your Goals (and Budget)

It’s impossible to measure the success of your task and growth without some hard-defined financial goals. It may be difficult but sit down and take a good hard look at your current financial responsibilities. It’s imperative that you do. Where can you cut back? Where are you splurging? If you can’t keep track of your daily expenses and incomes easily, consider phone apps that will keep a digital financial ledger for you.

Check out one (or several) of these budgeting apps to determine which will provide the most value:
– Mint
– You Need a Budget (YNAB)
– EveryDollar
– PocketGuard
– Goodbudget
– Honeydue

2022 headlines in non-mainstream media outlets were emphasized truthfully

Take Charge of Your Credit Card Debt

Although the phrase “never spend more than you can afford” certainly has its merits, sometimes life gets in the way. Sadly, banks and credit card companies are more than happy to throw you a lifeline in the form of credit with high APRs (Annual Percentage Rate). However, when you are unable to pay back the balance due within a certain timeframe, these companies will be expecting some form of compensation in the form of interest. With the average individual APR standing at 16%, you’re throwing money to the banks if you don’t pay off your debt in time.

To minimize your payments, interest and all, look into the following credit-card debt tactics:
– The Debt Snowball Method
– The Debt Avalance Method
– A Debt Consolidation Loan

Don’t Waste Your Raise

Raises are a dime-a-dozen. When you do reach that higher number, don’t instantly fall into the trap of “lifestyle inflation.” Avoid the pitfalls of the luxuries and novelties of your next “perceived” lifestyle. Don’t let these splurge purchases steal all your financial increases in a one-fell swoop. Play it smart and be aware.

Meal Prep

A space where this massive inflation is most readily felt is at the grocery store. Milk, eggs, bread, produce… the staples, are becoming more and more expensive. Even if the price increase is subtle, the yearly cost for your weekly supermarket trips will be substantially more. Even then, if you and your family depend on restaurant take-out and delivery, the price surges will be even more eye-opening.

Keep your mind and body focused on the food you need. Don’t fall victim to the traps of grocery store marketing and product placement. Three quicks tips when grocery shopping:

1. Make a list of the items you intend to purchase to keep you on track.

2. Eat before you shop to ensure you’re less tempted by splurge purchases.

3. Plan your meals. Prepping a batch of meals will save on time, money, and unneeded calories.

Cut the Automated Memberships

Face it, media and shopping conglomerates have become best friends with automated monthly and yearly memberships.

Here is just a quick list of just a few of the automated services some come to rely on:

– Netflix
– Hulu
– Disney+
– Apple TV+
– Youtube Premium
– Amazon Prime
– Walmart Plus
– Any Gym Membership

Multiply your monthly automated memberships by 12. Yearly costs.

You’re probably sitting on several memberships right now that are not being used or enjoyed. Take a second to look at your bank and credit card statements to find your recurring expenses. If one, or several, of these services have not been used in the past month, more than likely it’s time to let it go.

Personally, we haven’t had any type of subscription television services in years and don’t miss it. Out lives are far better without it.

Programmable Thermostat

Heating and cooling a house is often the largest energy expense for a standard household. Simply leaving the heating or cooling system off and grabbing a blanket or desk fan instead can lower energy bills, but there is a way to save even more. Most houses come with thermostats where you must manually change the temperature, meaning when you forget to turn off the heat it will run and waste energy until you switch it off, but a programmable thermostat can solve that problem.

A programmable thermostat lets you schedule when your heating/cooling will turn on so it is never running unnecessarily. Program your thermostat to hold an efficient temperature while you are away from home or asleep to save money without sacrificing comfort. Many programmable thermostats can also connect to WiFi, letting you control your home’s temperature through your smartphone.

Replace Your Air Filter

You can install a programmable thermostat, but if your air filters are clogged, then you cannot properly reap the benefits. Air filters catch debris like pollen, dust, dander, and lint to ensure your heating/cooling system is filling your home with clean air. Over time, air filters will accrue build-up which limits the flow of air.

A dirty air filter cannot perform its job efficiently and can drag down the efficiency of your entire HVAC system. Set reminders to replace your air filters according to the manufacturer’s recommendation and you’ll help maintain lower energy bills each and every year.

Better Light Bulbs

For many years incandescent light bulbs were the standard and sometimes the only option, but now we have better choices in CFL and LED light bulbs.

These bulbs are more energy-efficient than incandescent bulbs, but also last longer and shine brighter, making CFL and LED bulbs the superior lighting option. While incandescent bulbs cost less per unit, they cost more over time.

The average incandescent bulbs use 60W and last for 1,200 hours. Over 20 years, you will spend roughly $169 replacing a single dead incandescent bulb. An LED bulb uses 7W and has a lifespan of 25,000 hours which means over 20 years, you will replace a single LED bulb maybe twice for a rough total of $8.

Laundry

🔹If you have a washing machine in your house, wash your clothes with cold water whenever possible.

🔹Heating water to use in your washing machine uses electricity whereas washing your clothes in cold water does not.

🔹Instead of using your dryer, consider air-drying your clothes. Hanging your clothes up to dry overnight ensures you have dry, clean clothes in the morning without using electricity. You can set up a clothesline outside or place a clothes-drying rack indoors to replace your dryer.

Biden Economy Continues to Infuriate Americans

Over half of voters believe ‘Bidenflation” could be intentional

A University of Michigan survey of consumer sentiment revealed Friday that inflation is considerably depressing America’s confidence in the economy. The specific blame is on Joe Biden’s administration and big government policy makers.

About one-third of the country’s households expect their financial condition to worsen over the next year due to rising prices, now deemed “Bidenflation.”

This is now the largest share of costs in historical records going back to the 1940s.

Shockingly, now only 16 percent of Americans say they trust Biden has the right policies to deal with the problems. Despite mainstream media narratives, people are feeling the inflation personally in their own pocketbooks. This is certainly a strong sign of the continuing loss of confidence in the Fed and the Biden administration.

The state of economy is so bad that now over 54 percent of voters believe these failed policies could be a combination of being intentional and/or incompetence. This is detrimental to fighting inflation harder because so much of inflation depends upon psychology and expectations.

This is not good for Democrats and RINOS during mid-term elections.

What is becoming obviously normal with the Biden economy is the administration’s and corporate media failure rate on predicting employment measures. Next week we will get another declining readout on this months’ jobs numbers.

The market is expecting a drop down to a still-extremely high 450,000 from February’s astronomical 678,000. Some forecasters are predicting figures surpassing last month’s horrorific readout of high jobless claims.

The best we can hope for at this point is some indication of employment growth in the regional Fed surveys. Better labor market figures might entice those who want to work to roll up their sleeves and come off the sidelines. This could possibly help prevent wages from exploding too high. Any numbers higher than consensus, however, is likely to increase anxiety about a wage-price inflation spiral.

New Figures: Americans Hurting Under Biden’s Reckless Inflation

The economy is so bad that even mainstream media can’t hide Joe Biden’s policies are hammering America’s consumers so much, they are wiping out pay raises.

The Biden Administration misrepresentations regarding the American economy are as troubling as their lies about the pandemic, illegal immigration, lack of military leadership and energy.

Compared to President Trump’s term, under the current White House resident’s first year, consumer prices skyrocketed 7.5 percent in 2021. This is the worst annual inflation since 1982.

🔹Used car prices are 40.5% higher than this time last year.

🔹Just food and housing prices alone are up 7.4 percent.

🔹Ground beef is up 13.4 percent.

🔹Even with generous raises in all categories (think traveling nurses, restaurants and fast food employees) average hourly wages haven fallen 1.3 percent after inflation.

🔹Lumber is up 30 percent.

🔹Household appliances have increased 13 percent.

While Big Media, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Digital and Big China continue to control Biden’s failing actions, Americans are paying an enormous price.

Trump put up with much media and political distortion during his successful time in office, but despite their continuous false reporting and outlooks, consumer prices remained consistently low throughout his administration.

The media pundits–without evidence–were wrong about Trump’s tax tariffs. They turned out not to be taxes on consumers after all. Citizens were relieved because the tax tariffs were absorbed by Chinese producers and exporters and the profit margins of most large U.S. companies.

For the vast majority of American citizens, Biden’s ineptness has resulted in prices rising above and faster than wages. Both low and middle income families are living with a much lower standard of living.

By mid-February, 2022, almost half of all Americans say inflation has put a tough strain on household finances.

Not only is Biden’s handling of the economy at a record low, his overall approval rating has plummeted.

Health Care Sharing Ministries Offer Members Freedom to Choose Holistic Treatment

Unlike health insurance, many HCSMs allow members to share costs of alternative therapies

More and more Americans are turning to alternative medicine, either to complement standard medical care or to use non-Western treatment methods as an alternative to standard medical approaches.

As many as one third of American adults are using some form of alternative medical care, according to a National Health Interview Survey.

The data come from the National Health Statistics Report, a survey of more than 89,000 American adults and more than 17,000 children four to 17 years old.

“This is one of the most striking advantages offered by many Health Care Sharing Ministries,” says Katy Talento, executive director of the Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries (The Alliance, ahcsm.org). “Most insurance plans outright exclude or narrowly limit access to alternative care such as chiropractors, naturopathic providers, nutrition and health coaches, acupuncturists and others. But members of many Health Care Sharing Ministries are free to seek these types of services and have the expenses shared by other members.”

Among adults 18 and over, increases were seen from 2012 to 2017 in the use of alternative and complementary care models such as chiropractic care and acupuncture during the preceding 12 months, according to the National Health Interview Survey in 2018.

“Whether people use it as their main form of health care or in conjunction with a standard health care approach, the use of non-Western and or naturopathic health care approaches are surging in popularity,” Talento says. “Rather than relying on strict physician networks, many HCSM members are able to access the practices and treatments that best suit their needs.”

“Complementary” and “alternative medicine” include holistic, non-Western and homeopathic health practices that are not usually used in Western treatment protocols, according to the Centers for Disease Control. “Complementary medicine” is care that is used along with standard medical protocols, while “alternative medicine” is used in place of standard medical protocols.

Examples of both include acupuncture, chiropractic care, naturopathy, homeopathy, herbalism, tai chi, other mind-body therapies, vitamins, herbs, and other nutritional therapies.

“Health Care Sharing Ministries champion the freedom to choose what is best among the many health care options that exist for ourselves and our families,” Talento says.

Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., The Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries was created through a collaborative effort of Samaritan Ministries International of Peoria, Illinois and Christian Care Ministry of Melbourne, Florida for the purpose of protecting and preserving the rights of their members, and Christians in general, to engage in healthcare cost sharing as a viable alternative for their medical needs. 

The Alliance was established as a 501(c)(6) trade organization to represent the common interests of Health Care Sharing Ministry organizations which are facilitating the sharing of health care needs (financial, emotional, and spiritual) by individuals and families, and their participants. The Alliance engages with federal and state regulators, members of the media, and the Christian community to provide accurate and timely information on medical cost sharing.

Learn more about the Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries visit www.ahcsm.org or follow the ministry on Facebook or Twitter.

Abbott Warns Texas Agencies to Scrutinize New Federal Contracts

“… be vigilant and communicate frequently with my office before you proceed with accepting or applying for federal funding opportunities.”

Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott warned all state agencies to scrutinize any funding agreements or contracts to “carefully assess their implications” in preparation for the $1 trillion congressional infrastructure bill possibilities.

Abbott

“Should the acceptance of any federal funds hinder or needlessly constrain the state, commit the state to ongoing costs for which there is not an appropriation available, or require an agency to implement a federal policy contrary to the law or policy of this state, the agreement proposed by the federal agency should not be signed,” Abbott’s letter reads.

“Please be vigilant and communicate frequently with my office before you proceed with accepting or applying for federal funding opportunities.”

The warning comes on the heels of unanswered questions about the attached strings tied to the federal coronavirus aid, specifically whether recipients must adhere to “all other applicable federal statutes, regulations, and executive orders” from the federal government.

The funding is intended to finance “drinking-water infrastructure, broadband access, transportation, airports, and more.”

Lessons From 1970s Long Gas Rationing Lines We Should Pay Attention to Today

GasBuddy recently forecasted the national average for gasoline at the pump will rise to $3.41 a gallon in 2022, up from $3.02 a gallon in 2021.

Energy Information Administration (EIA) last week predicted gas will be up to $3.79 in 2022.

White House Resident Joe Biden, on Day One decided to rescind the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Under President Donald J. Trump’s first term, gas prices were close to $1.20 less than Biden’s first year in office. For the first time in history, Americans were not energy dependent on foreign oil.

Today, US pipeline capacity is sitting around 50%.

“We could see a national average that flirts with, or in a worst-case scenario, potentially exceeds $4 a gallon,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, the leading app that tracks fuel prices, demand and outages.

Baby Boomers have not forgotten the amplified inflationary pressures American families grappled with during the 1970s and 1980s. With Biden in control, all analysts (except for those in government and mainstream media) indicate we will soon be living with the biggest price spikes in nearly 40 years.

Many of us experienced first-hand the rationing, restrictions and long lines of President Jimmy Carter’s decisions. It was devastating and did not set too well with most Americans when Carter, discussing high home-heating oil prices, encouraged us to wear a sweater and turn down the thermostat.

Singer Jerry Reed’s new recording was entitled “The Crude Oil Blues.” Other songs hitting the airwaves and record stores were “Get That Gasoline Blues,” by NRBQ and “Where Have All the Gas Pumps Gone To?”

Just as it was with Carter, citizens today see in Biden as someone not on their side of the fight.
