T.M.S.: Pay my Amex bill.

Can you share with the rest of us untermensch how someone manages to be a wildly successful self-made man? You know, one who didn't live a good chunk of his early years on the tax-payers' dime? Being disqualified from such a life personally, as I benefited from many institutions of the state, I was only asking in the hopes of passing on the wisdom to some uncorrupted youths in highlands of Peru.


Nope. I have no idea how to do that. Sorry. Peru is not my strong suit.

I grew up in the arts working for not-for-profit institutions. (Most funded by the taxpayers and I thank them)

I assume you're talking about CEOs earning 100s of times their employees, golden parachutes, vulture capitalism..

Loadmaster: Being on food stamps, taking welfare, not having a job for years at a time used to be considered shameful and cause for being ostracized. There was a time, not too long ago, when people did not want to ask for hand-outs because of the stigma and loss of self-worth it brought. Not any more.


Oh FFS. Do you know how I know you're just pulling shat out of your arse here? You have to work for welfare. It's been that way for nearly 20 years. Republican propagandists told you to think that. You can prove to them you are as gullible as they think you are by continuing to believe it.

These are people that were born on third base.

There is a big difference between "Hard work makes you rich" and "Hard work makes you more likely to get rich."

Bingo. If I doubled my hours at my $18k per year job it wouldnt make me wealthy. It would only get me back where I was 6+ years ago. Even then I was mostly broke, but I had nicer stuff. Like a house and a new car. Now the car is 8 years old, the house is gone and we are living with the mother-in-law. I also did less physical work than I do now. Now its more work for less money.

What have I learned? When the economy is bad Florida is a terrible place to be. Well, it always sucked, it just sucks even more to be in FL AND broke.

I'm not sure about 1). I've met a lot of six figure folks who work for the man.

For grist, I'm a big fan of the Dave Ramsey plan. I know it gets a little Jesus-y from time to time, but I worked the plan for a few years in a secular way and it did wonders. No credit card debt, no car debt, and I have a cash fund ready to blow on a car when my trusty '02 Prius dies. Get yo' backside out of debt pronto.


Six figures isn't rich. It's a lot of money and I'd like to be making that, but it's not rich. Well, maybe if the six figures are all 9s.
