3. Not sure why Walrus says min wage should be no more than 55% of median, but here based on google results it’s roughly 60% and is still nowhere near enough of an income to have any sort of quality of life. After tax full time minimum wage Nets $1700 or so. It now costs more than $1000/mo just to ...

Well I know life was tough back then.I would much rather of been a cattle baron in Texas in 1910 than the modern upper-middle class life I have now.But you do have a point because I heard something like a poor or lower middle class American has a better standard of living than the kings of thousand...

It’s one thing to express a negative opinion of a public figure, and entirely another to fabricate things about them or to threaten them. Pretty sure you’re still not allowed to do those things within legal boundaries of speech. Slander is a civil issue. The legal remedy would be financial damages,...

Things always worked out such that it was never the right time to start for me. So I don't have such. Then again, buying my home was probably a good investment. Prolly not the right time to start right now either. Technically I could buy A home somewhere in the region if it were my goal, but it's a...

I've been on the phone again with the client for quite some time now. She's being bs'd and gaslighted by the contractor further.. even threatening to lien the house. (Liens are toothless without a lawsuit filed within 1 year and there's Zero proof she hasn't paid a contractor's bills so even IF they...

Logged into an investment account for the first time in 5+ years to have a look at what I'd avoided looking at. Figured it was worthless - yeah, pretty much. One main stock I held has been delisted. In the grand scheme of the history of the account, according to records within it, it seems I withdre...

A few comments on posts on this page. 1. Street level drug dealers make plenty more than minimum wage. Maybe not if they’re slanging dime bags of weed for ultra low margins, but hard drugs to a constant stream of addicts? They’re making more like a highly skilled wage in cash. Do you have any exper...

Could really use some answers. Like, if I choose option A, how's that going to turn out in the long run? For me, for others. And if I choose option B, how's that going to turn out? Or C/something in between, again, how's that going to turn out? With no or crystal ball, or even just a magic 8 ball, ...

Lunacy and murder knows no age or race. But when it comes to the method being via gun it sure knows a nationality! That sadly is true. Generally a dedicated Lefty here, but I will agree that the media is overhyping the danger guns pose to society. South Korea has a much higher suicide rate than the...

Was a good visit.. but ofc, the plot thickens. Very emotional reunion for his grandmother. Good visit, though. Discussed the ongoing situation, relayed some critical info to him, gave him the social workers' phone numbers as he didn't have them and is awaiting a call to schedule a meeting but can ca...
