bunner: Ricardo Klement: Gee - that sounds a lot like economic activity to me.

It is.

So's this.

Any of this sinking in yet?

Cause the banksters you're carrying water for aren't recording your IP so they can offer you that board member job any time soon.


Hey, someone lied to you and told you people were removing money from the economy - don't get angry with ME.

Oh look, another piss and moan and gnash our teeth at the rich, thread. How cute. Don't you anger management class dropouts ever have anything better to do than daydream about your upcoming revolution? (I mean when you're not helping the poor---who you also denigrate.)

wolfpaq777: / try not to use words like "only", it makes it really easy to prove you wrong, although given how stupid your post was I'm guessing it's not that hard to do even when you aren't speaking in absolutes


Okay then show me where a liberal called the current president a "Messiah". One link will do, that is if our reading skills are up to it.
Difficulty: no blogs or opinion sites, legit news sources only.

I see people are still defending taking more than their fair share of stuff..

You  know someone starved to death between you starting to read this post and now. Read it again and it will still be true.

EWreckedSean: That said, it is only one factor to success. I could spend three days a week cutting my lawn with scissors. What you do or don't do is equally as important as how hard you work at it. You can be the best janitor in a company. That might get you some extra shifts, a better raise and some over time that puts you ahead of the worst janitor, but your aren't going to become CEO of the company. Also doesn't mean you weren't rewarded for working harder either...


But with all the extra hours you get, you can save up the money and then eventually start your own company and be CEO of that.

CheapEngineer: In the midst of standing on your soapbox and proclaiming how perfect your plan is, and how well it's gone so far pray consider the possibility that not everyone will happen upon the same circumstances as you. Imagine that the times when opportunity went well for you go the other way for someone else. Stretch your mind for the concept of "there but for the grace of God go I" when someone tells you that the breaks *didn't* fall for them like they have for you. Imagine if you will how random chance handing another person a shiat sandwich may *not* be the result of being an idiot who can't manage the simple task of handling their money.

Nevermind. It was a silly request. I don't want you to strain something.


You realize, of course, that what I was suggesting was action that would help prevent getting whored over by a 'there, but for the grace of God, go I' event?   I am not some jackass talking about how
great it is to buy a home at 19 and have done it 3 times, and you could too, if you were as cool as me.

I was proposing the least risky course of action.

The Patient: I am fairly sure you wouldn't get your security deposit back if you have to break your lease at the drop of a hat so you can move to where all the jobs are.


Depends.  Often, you can get it back if you find a new renter for the landlord.  They often simply want to make sure they have constant income.   Short of that, sign a month to month lease instead.  Sometimes, after you have a one year lease, it will revert to a month to month lease anyway if you do not sign a new lease.

 You might let them know if your circumstances and be sure to clean it up nicely.
I had to break a lease and I got my security deposit back ($1500) simply by talking to the landlord about a job loss by my roommate and I could not pay it long by myself.  He was happy to have communication  and a clean house, not a destroyed house that happens often when someone feels they are mad that life dealt them a bad hand.

stir22: Nutsac_Jim: I certainly recognize that other people see things differently than me. Quite simply, they are wrong.

you had some great points in this thread...i agreed with you about the rent.

but it's statements like i quoted where you lose legitimacy.  and that's a shame.


Ha..  yeah, I guess you are right.  I was just trying to be funny at that point.  Been watching too much 'Big Bang Theory'.  :)

Oh, for heaven's sake, already, there's only one way to help yourselves:  stop having babies, already.  Neither branch of the Republicrat Party are going to help you; they're just going to blow smoke up your butts and sell out to the Forbes 400.  You have to help yourselves by making yourselves less vulnerable to being jerked around by the J.P. Morgans of the world.  Show me a guy who's willing to work minimum wage toiling in the shiat mines, and I'll show you a chump with a bunch of hungry kids back in his shotgun shack.

Not having babies means not having to apologize to your kids for forcing them into an impoverished existence in a world that's rapidly turning into a global oligarchy.  Not having kids means less worker drones to keep the elite in power.  Not having kids means maybe having a few luxuries instead of a cockroach-infested home.  Not having kids means a more carefree life.  Worst case scenario, not having kids means you're not as vulnerable in a civil war.

Unless you're really hell-bent on being a parent, consider getting a snip job already.  Let the welfare queens and religious fanatics pop out the drones of the future.  Heck, the fertility rate in the USA is already close to 2.1 and it's below replacement level in nearly every industrial country in the world because people are waking up to realizing that parenthood is what keeps most people enslaved.  Labor follows the same law of supply and demand as any other commodity and the more scarce we peasants make ourselves, the better off we'll be...

Sure! I imagine it never occurs to people to *try* to stay out of debt, to live within your means. Thank goodness you're here to point out the non-obvious but logical path.

Bless you, kind sir.

Owners of janitorial companies certainly make more than employees, and I can't imagine they require that much capital up front.

Thought Experiment:  What if every poor person in the world decided that they were going on a baby strike and not having kids until they became a millionaire?  (Yes, this is highly unrealistic, but play with me.)  Would the ultra-rich be ecstatic that, within a generation or two, there would be no poor people to mooch off the rich?  Or would the ultra-rich be terrorized by the thought that there would soon be no desperate people to exploit for their labor?

Unless you really, really, really want to have kids or think your potential young'uns are going to be exceptional, why bother procreating?  Getting a snip job means one less tool to work for the rich and makes your life easier as well.

There's a reason that countries like South Korea and Germany have sub-replacement fertility levels.  It's because the people there increasingly don't want to live their lives like their grandparents lived--being dirt poor, popping out a lot of kids only to watch half of them die in childhood, working from dawn to dusk, and dying young from sheer exhaustion.  Fark that, stop being a tool already...

Nutsac_Jim: Now shut your whore mouth for making an assumption that I paid cash for residence and then calling me a liar about it.


Nutsac_Jim:

You really ARE special. You must be able to send you kids to school and pay for it all!!! I'm sure you bought you house and car WITH CASH.

Yes, I did.   Funny things happen when you save money.   It grows into a bigger pile.



I say again. You sir, are a farking liar.

You are right about this though. If you are up front and honest with a landlord and don't trash his house, they can be very VERY reasonable. I can't emphasize that enough.

How dreadful! The ultra rich would have to...shudder...clean their own toilets.
