SlothB77: I doubt that. 4 in 10 americans don't have $2000 worth of stuff they can sell if their lives depended on it? If you own a flat screen tv, a couch and a bike or a car, you are getting pretty close to that number. throw in a gun, computer and cell phone or other random appliances and you can get there.but yeah, after you sell all that stuff, you don't have much left.
Geoff Peterson: The Muthaship: And 8 out of 24 can't reduce a fraction.4 in 10 sounds worse than 2 in 5, I guess, but to me 2 in 5 sounds worse.[the more you know.jpg]
The Muthaship: And 8 out of 24 can't reduce a fraction.
SlothB77: also, I dnrtfa.
svanmeter: This should make our elected officials nervous.
doglover: If they just ate beans and lived in shared apartments, they could save up enough to get out their situations.
BigChad: I'm this close...[i188.photobucket.com image 750x600]
Witness99: Naw, I could come up with it. But that's only because I would be willing to do ANYTHING
JC22: No one is going to bemoan you for it.
JC22: But there are also those that game the system so they don't have to do anything. That's why those on the right want those people kicked off assistance.
TheShavingofOccam123: There's a support network out there for you.
MadHatter500: Now recompute for $20k per year of income, not $100k. It's the min wagers that SS is for, not above average incomes.

fireclown: [www.mamascritics.com image 850x625]Baby step 1: set up an emergancy fund of $1500.The guy is occasionally kind of nutty, but the bones of his plan are pretty sound.
GoldSpider: doglover: Serves those stupid poors right. They should take better care of their trust funds.Why are you so defensive about a simple statement of fact?
bdub77: You can probably get credit cards on the internet for like 10 cents a pop.
Serious Black: Of my ten closest friends, I believe at least seven of them would be unable to come up with $2,000 right now. One of the other three would probably have to tap their entire liquid savings to do it.
