Ok.. i'm bored here and figured i'd rant a little. was talking in another thread and someone mentioned this
(Exactly, if you're single 85k isn't horrible but if you're married with kids that suddenly turns to ****. With how expensive everything is these days if you've got kids and don't make at least 150k your wife needs a job too.)
Now, this is not a direct knock on anybody ie the person who said this. but really people.. how much money is needed to live comfortably?
i make around 85k a year, live in girlfirend who makes about 20k, and a son together. we live very comfortably. a nice house, big tv, sound system, eat great food (helps shes a good cook) blah blah blah. and i have plenty of money left over for toys. i got 69 chevy pu i'm restoring, got 90 chevy pu thats only got 60k original miles and runs great, 2007 kawasaki z1000 and 2004 kdx, both of us own a gtp, and my commuter car a buick park avenue ultra.
now, none of this stuff is what you could call top of the line toys, but it's all paid for, i owe nothing... only thing i pay a month is the mortgage and utilities.
also i do have to mention i'm sure where a person lives plays a big role. seen on tv some houses comparable to mine goin for 500-700k in some places.. absolutely absurd considering i paid 150k for mine. granted i do live in po dunk south dakota and in my community i'm above average on income. but i know plenty of people who's family income is around 50k and live just as good as i do because they know how to budget money. biggest difference between them and i is i shell about 15 percent of my income into retirement. AND I'M ONLY 23!!
what the hell is wrong with people!
it just seems to me anymore that people are just getting to lazy and want something for absolutely nothing. oh i got 4 kids so i get this and this and this for free and this at a steep discount picked up on MY tab (hard working middle class tax payers)
get off your asses and do something to better your self or put a shotty under your chin and help us all out
sorry, starting to get a lil off orignal topic but i just see the "worlds greatest nation" goin to hell in a hand basket
sorry in advance for any i may have offended but my opinion
can't wait to see what controversy this brings
