  1. The annual "What People Make". HOLY SHIT!!!!

    How does the average American make it on the salary paid???
    Yes, I am a bear but WTF?? This goes beyond talking the book.

    I am very serious when I say how do these people, (the avg American) make it in todays world on these pay figures. We live a very moderate lifestyle (my family), all I can say is that I could not make ends meet on the #'s touted by Parade.

    Take a look, do the math and then tell me how we are to grow our economy with those #'s?

    BTW, my 4 1/2 year old son just had his first credit card offer. I guess the reigns have been tightened on home lending so let's go after "sub-prime" school children. It was a "pre-approved" offer!! Obvoiusly the bankers have recently had their coffee secretly replaced with shroom' tea. Let's see if they notice!
  2. What were the avg numbers? 36k?
  3. haha, wow they are getting bad with those credit card offers.
