Today the utility bills have shocked many people. After cutting the subsidies in January 2011, the economic climate was very complicated and difficult. Now the people should pay 5 to 20 times more than before for their utility bills. For example, one of my friend should pay about 200$ for the gas bill, while his last bill was about 10$. We and some others, have not received our new bills yet. But under these conditions, the terrible economic climate could be another spark for a revolution, like the other classic revolutions.
From January 2011, the regime has cut the subsidies and raised the price of basic foods, fuels and utilities 4 to 20 times. The flour , bread, gasoline, oil, gas oil, electricity, water, gas, etc prices have risen 4 to 20 times. In Iran the average monthly income of the middle class family is around 600$ to 1000$ ! i.e. at least 4 times less than Europe and USA. Here a professional engineer, in any field, get around 1000$ monthly. But the comic-tragic point is that the groceries price here are equal to or more than the prices in USA and Europe. For example 1kg Meat = 20$, 1kg Chicken = 5$, 1kg Apple = 4$, 1kg Yogurt = 4$, etc. Could you believe this? Now you could easily guess how the people live here in this terrible condition, with such difficulty. After cutting subsidies, the regime has paid just 40$ ! (monthly) for each person, but they have raised the price of basic foods, fuels and utilities 4 to 20 times !
In the past years, the regime and Mullahs have plundered everything. They destroy and screw all forests, rivers, and water resources, etc. The Oil and gas resources was plundered by them in a harsh way. In the recent years, many green activists and journalists have been put in jail, because of asking just a little question about “conservation” matter. The regime and Mullahs have monopolized everything, without any exception. More than 90% of the economic is on the government hand. Here we pay 25k$ for a f-u-c-k-i-n-g car that is assembled in a public monopoly, while this car has a price about 8k$ in the outside world and doesn’t have any of the f-u-c-k-i-n-g problems of these assembled cars in Iran
I’m sure that you, the foreigners, could not believe and even guess our economic condition here. Just imagine one morning wake up and see that you must pay 10 times more than before for this, 5 times more for that, 20 times more for this, 3 times more for that; and besides that you must live under a great religious tyranny and theocracy. It’s like a nightmare in another nightmare ! Very soon all the prices here would be 3 and 4 times more than the prices in USA and Europe, while the salaries here are 4 and 5 times less than there. Such a miracle !! It’s an Islamic miracle !! F-u-c-k you Mullahs
