Dear MJ; Yes, working people back in that day of $3.35 an hour wages got a 
great deal then. However it is true the conservative meditator I here speak for 
feels deeply that people are not paying anywhere close to enough to learn TM at 
$1,500. And, the slacker kids living at home with their parents neither too. 
The TM movement could squeeze at least another thousand out of the new people 
coming to our Peace Palaces. It is extremely important to have commitment from 
new people as they start or you end up like some of the quitters we see here.

and still do TM don't appreciate what they got???

 Om the middle-class, they spend money on the stupidest
 things like
 new smartphones or new F-150 pickup trucks when they
 don't need them.
 Harley Davidson motorcycles. Jeezus have you looked at the
 price of
 Harley Davidson motorcycles and noticed how many
 middle-agers are going down the road on them dressing and
 trying to
 look like the lower working classes they are not? What a
 wealthy bunch of
 spiritually ill-disciplined narcissistic people.-Buck

  Trulia ran these numbers based on the

 percent of its pre-tax income on housing (and that it must
 pay local property taxes and insurance). This data also
 assumes that a family makes a 20 percent down payment on a
 home – a daunting feat even on a six-figure income in
 somewhere like Los Angeles or New York.

 An old couple I know down in San
 Antonio live in the family home that they inherited from his
 auntie. The guy says he pays about $100 per month in
 property taxes. Sounds like pretty cheap rent for a 1200 sq

 taxes go to local public schools. And, he doesn't even
 have any children! Go figure.
