Re: 2019: "An Apple for a Dollar"

According to the CPI calculator, 5¢ in 1930 dollars, the usual price for apples sold by unemployed Depression era Americans (and future FDR voters) is 75¢ today. Selling them for $1.00 each avoids having to make change. http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/cpicalc.pl Some panhandled. https://www.youtube.com/...

Throughout the land
Don't try to comprehend

Beyond your command
Your powers of learning are fading
So get out your glue gun
To achieve your plan

That needs changin'
