  •  You are not allowed to exist in america (6+ / 0-)

    on $2 a day - that's a crime called "vagrancy".

    It's worse than being poor.

    I make just under $50000 a year - that makes me an asshole?

    I have been laid off from real employment since about 2002 - had a couple of assholish $40k/year jobs, but they too laid me off.

    I have a Ba, a masters, 20-some years professional experience and a professional licence. I have looked and looked for work and the best I can do is about $48k.

    I am in a hole and however fabulous $50K seems it will be years before I am back to having things paid for, maintained, up to snuff and money is going in savings.

    I am simply check to check, however fabby my salary is.


    Republicans HATE America. Deal with it.

    •  I mean the group talking about 250k not being (3+ / 0-)

      enough are the assholes. Not people living check to check of course. Especially not you.

      It just pisses me off when groups like this, and people like romney say "im unemployed too" "I know what it feels like" while in the meantime he has upwards of 150mil sitting in various accounts.

      If a billion people can find a way to live on about 2$ a day, than the people making 250k a year really have nothing to complain about.
