    2. Rand Paul. Sometimes really sounded like "out there" but I've never disagreed with his stance on the Federal Reserve.

  3. Imagine if you will had those three captains of industry had survived? Some conspiracy theories I have read was the Titanic was a "Red Flag" of it's day. The corruption and deceit of the Deep State was alive and kicking well even then...

  6. Pretty close with the quarters. Minimum wage in 1964 was $1.15. It went up to $1.25 in 1965. So an hour's work paid 4.6 quarters not 5. In today's melt value, that's $15.96. So "real" minimum wage buying power is less now than then, but I'd wager that $1.15 in 1964 went a lot further than $15.96 today to buy the same items, so that "real" power is actually much less.

    1. Drew458, I remembered working in 1965 for $1.25 and it was plenty. So you're probably correctomundo about 1964.
