Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.
Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

Poor is when you can only afford half the memory your laptop is capable of using.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

Right now I am running on the charger full time, because I just got it back from the repair place, got a new keyboard and track pad under warranty (about to expire at 3 years) but they said my battery was swollen (it is) and needs to be replaced. So right now there is a hole in the back of my computer while I debate internally the cost effectiveness of apple OEM battery ($120) or "just as good" ($60).

You're poor if you think you are. You're rich if your neighbor thinks you are. If neither, you're probably middle class - whatever that is.
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

The year I made less than $6,000 for the entire year.
That was 2000.
Nothing like being 31 and having to move you and your two kids back in with your parents.
The only reason I had any income at all that year was thanks to my National Guard drill checks.

You're poor if you have a 42" flat screen but your neighbor who works has a 60".

I don't know why people obsess over TV's and stuff. If you go to any Goodwill store you can find TV's for under $100, Goodwill outlet stores sells big-screen TV's for under $50.
These thrift resell shops sell clothes and shoes for a few dollars. They sell toys and kitchen gadgets for the same price.
Just because you would rather (and are able) to go waste $900 on a new tv from Best Buy doesn't mean that's what everyone does.Originally Posted by Adam Smith - Wealth of Nations

They sell xbox 360's for about $60. A family that can't afford $1000+ per month rent buys their child a once-a-year under-$100 toy for christmas so that the kid doesn't spend his time around the crackheads and gang members in these bad neighborhoods, and you people vilify them because you view that as a luxury.Originally Posted by Adam Smith - Wealth of Nations
