Anyone old enough to remember when it only took one income to buy a house, car, feed the kids and enjoy life?
Now it's pretty much mandatory that there be two incomes. So which came 1st, high prices or two income families?



Two incomes due to buying too much "stuff", new cars, cars for the kid, college, sports, large homes, 6 cell phones, laptops, vacations, RVs, boats, TV in every room, new clothes, nails done, internet, Direct TV, eat out all the time, shop, shop, shop, instant gratification, mired in debt.

Also, high school kids worked for their extra money, and did chores. We did not get much allowance or everything we wanted not like today, we worked.

Keep buying all that "stuff" and you need 3 incomes.

I remember wearing hand me down clothes, mom shopping at garage sales for furniture, etc.

It is expensive to live in this country and we cannot continue to allow millions upon millions of foreigners and their offspring come here and pay their bills out of our wallets too.

No wonder we are broke and people on the verge of homelessness and our local and state budgets are shot, schools in disrepair and teachers cannot make ends meet, overcrowded classes. Healthcare costs through the roof and they pay nothing...WE pay for that too.

We cannot pay our own bills. How do wages rise if we keep bringing in "cheap" labor by the millions and they cannot afford medical, housing, school, food, etc. This is absurd.

22 trillion in debt but let's shell out the free stuff here and all across the world [emoticon]

$22T debt/327M people = $67,000 debt for every person and double that for working adults.

This has turned into a "Haves against the Have Nots" thread. Take out the people that inherited or married their fortune and there will be a lot less of the "Haves". Deduct the "Being in the right place at the right time" crowd and fewer yet will remain. Ignore those who were born on third base and thought they had hit a triple people folks. The few that remain are unlikely to put down their less fortunate neighbors. In fact, they might try to help them.

How not hardly? How so?

They do not have a brain to think for themselves? Stay out of trouble? We have access to so much information on the internet than ever before. Is ignorance an excuse now, gee "I didn't know"?

No will to pay attention in school? No access to teachers or counselors in our schools? No books to study? Go to Church for support? No opportunity to choose their friends wisely and stay out of trouble?

No opportunity to work one job? Two jobs to get ahead? Get roommates to save money? I did that much of my life.

Volunteer? Use the Library? Use the many programs available to help people? Get counseling?

People do not have access to birth control?

No access to school, community college?

No opportunity to joining the military as a means to get out of a bad situation, earn a paycheck, have a bed, a meal, and training? No opportunity to join the Reserves for extra income? And yes, I did that too. Both active duty and reserves AND worked 40 hour work week and took classes at night.

No access to move anywhere in this country for work and better living conditions? I have moved over 28 times back and forth all across this country in my life for jobs. Not by choice, for survival.

Pull the poor me card? The race card? I also lived in the projects with my single mother that had 3 kids after our father left us. Guess we could have just stayed there the last 50 years and say we had "no opportunity" to get out and created 3 more generations of kids on the government dole.

This is the greatest country on Earth, "not hardly" excuse does not cut it, neither does "poor me" anymore.

Now triple that debt with all the "free" stuff these imbeciles want to give away.

327M people and climbing with the 4 million pouring in, year after year after year, and their offspring they have while the numbers soar.

We will never recover from this.

Accepting this as factual requires people to accept personal responsibility for their failures in life. Isn't going to happen.

No, it's much easier just to tax the people that made something out of their life.

We all do NOT have the same IQ, nor the same opportunities.
It's better for me not to argue this.
