The following was sent to me in an email. I found it to be an interesting read and decided to place it with in my site. I have no idea who is responsible for writing it. However they did a terrific job.

For those of you who can remember back to the 50's, these are really a hoot. For those of you who can't, they're good for a laugh just the same! Here are some quotes from very prominent people in the US during the1950's. The latest quote was from 1957, the earliest, 1952. For those of you that aren't old enough to remember the 50's, these are real quotes and each was felt to be true by a huge majority of the population.

(1) "I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20.00.
(2) "Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long when $5000 will only buy a used one."

(3) "If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous."

(4) "Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?"

(5) "The Government is wanting to get its hands on everything.
Pretty soon it's going to be impossible to run a family business or farm."

(6) "If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store."

(7) "When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 50 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage."

(8) "Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls."

(9) "Also, their music drives me wild. This 'Rock Around The Clock' thing is nothing but racket."

(10) "Pretty soon you won't be able to buy a good 10 cent cigar."

(11) "Do you suppose television will ever reach our part of the country?"

(12) "I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now."

(13) "It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet."

(14) "I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas."

(15) "Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the president."

(16) "I'll tell you one thing. If my kid ever talks back to me, they won't be able to sit down for a week."

(17) "Did you know the new church in town is allowing women to wear slacks to their service?"

(18) "Next thing you know is, the government will start paying us not to grow crops."

(19) "It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

(20) "Marriage doesn't mean a thing anymore, those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat."

(21) I just hate to see the young people smoking. As I tell my kids, "Don't take a cigarette from ANYONE. You never know what might be in it."

(22) "Why in the world would you want to send your daughter to college? Isn't she going to get married? It would be different if she could be a doctor or a lawyer."

(23) "The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but seriously doubt they will ever catch on."

(24) "I'm just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business."

(25) "Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to Congress."

(26) "There is no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel."

(27) "No one can afford to be sick anymore, $35 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood."

(28) "If a few idiots want to risk their necks flying across the country that's fine, but nothing will ever replace trains."

(29) "I don't know about you but if they raise the price of coffee to 15 cents, I'll just have to drink mine at home."

(30) 'If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it. I'll have
my wife learn to cut hair."

(31) "Cars which dim their lights by sensors, automatic transmissions, and who knows what else? Pretty soon they will drive themselves."

(32) "We won't be going out much anymore. Our baby sitter informed us she wants 50 cents an hour. Kids think money grows on trees."

No, it wasn't so long ago!!!
