It is pretty well known that a politician will tell you anything you want to hear whenever he is trying to get your vote. However, it is an altogether different story once he is elected.

We hear more predictions everyday about how most of the retail business will someday be transacted over the internet, yet we see ever larger retail shopping malls being built everyday. These predictions should be taken with a grain of salt. Not all predictions come to pass.

There was a time back in the mid 1960's when I was having a discussion with a telephone company employee. This was at the time when they were just beginning to impliment the local area codes. Most long distance calls at this time were still handled by operators.

The telephone company employee told me that the purpose of the local area codes was to allow each individual to dial his long distance calls direct without going through an operator and when they got all the telephone exchanges in the country set up with their own area code, the company could eliminate the operators and everyone would pay one basic bill every month and be able to call anywhere in the USA and as often as they wanted without any extra charges. The only calls that would incur extra charges would be international calls.

I think everyone has had their own area code for quite some time now, but I am still paying for my long distance calls.

This is just one prediction that did not work out. What about the electric solar powered cars. Another flop.

An old addage that I go by says: "Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see because most of it is padded."
