ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO IN THE UNITED STATES

What a difference a century makes! 
Here are some statistics for
America for the Year 1910:

 

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only. 

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower !

The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour.

The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year.

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, 
a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year,
 and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births took place at home.

Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!

Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which

were condemned in the Press AND by the government as 'substandard.'

Sugar cost four cents a pound.

Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

The Five leading causes of death were:

1. Pneumonia and influenza 
2. Tuberculosis 
3. Diarrhoea 
4. Heart disease 
5. Stroke

The American flag had 45 stars.

The population of Las Vegas , Nevada , was only 30!

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet.

There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day yet.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write and 

only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores.

Back then pharmacists said: 'Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health.'

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A.

   

Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years. 

IT STAGGERS THE MIND!

The Right To Confront Your Accuser.

     The red-light cameras that have become common place in major cities at traffic light intersections are practically illegal and unconstitutional.  These are nothing more than menaces which can cause accidents than to prevent one.  Electronic cameras are not rational being therefore, if you ever got ticketed under this kind of situation try to fight the case under the right to confront your accuser clause.

     In every jurisdiction in the United States, you have the right to confront your accuser in a court of law.  Simply demand that right as you would for any other traffic violations or criminal allegations.  If the jurisdiction failed to produce your accuser in the proceedings, request from the judge to throw out the case.

RALEIGH, N.C. – A haunting 150-year-old photo found in a North Carolina attic shows a young black child named John, barefoot and wearing ragged clothes, perched on a barrel next to another unidentified young boy. It is a rare portrait revealing the condition of Civil War-era slave children.
