    If my wife gets laid off believe me we will be just fine. Unlike most we don't run our bills up so high that we can't pay them on one income.

    TWA did not die during a pandemic or disaster. TWA died because Icahn smothered it to death.

    The reason college costs so much is because socialist government and leftist universities are scamming the American citizens.

    There is a reason universities are so left leaning. There is a reason student debt is 1.6 TRILLION dollars. There is a reason it is beat into youths heads that they must go to college to be successful.

    Part of the reason middle class is unobtainable for people is because they are stupid. They just go to college to go to college. They have no goal and no direction. Some spend a ton of money to get a worthless art history or gender studies degree. They are not taught how to look for a job or how to plan for a career. Another reason is when they do get a job most just settle instead of trying to move up to better paying positions. You see it all the time. You will have some fool at Walmart that has been there for 20 years still working as a cashier. They complain about the low pay but have not done a damn thing in 20 years to move up.

    Honestly what kind of sense does it make to go to college for 4 years and bury yourself in student debt to get a low paying public teaching job?

    I did not go to college. Instead I chose to go to tech school. I exceed the income of most people in this state with a master's degree. I found a way to get the money without going into massive debt. The school I went to also offers A&P. That is another alternative to make well over 100K without going into massive debt. My cousin did not go to school at all. He taught himself to weld and pulls 6 figures a year doing pipeline inspection. There are 3 examples of entry into middle class that require no degree and little monetary investment.

    Not when their unemployment check pays better than their last job. I have already shown swamt that is a reality. Here is part of that post.

    Nonsense. I got on Indeed the other day and found 4 jobs paying 20 an hour that required no degrees and no special training. There are TONS of jobs out there. What you said is an outright lie. I can sit there an find unskilled jobs paying $15 an hour all day long. They are a dime a dozen.

    Great. I am against supporting people not to work when there are so many employers hiring right now. Of course I am given no choice. I just have to tolerate a thieving government pushing a socialist agenda helping themselves to my paycheck.

    That is a good reason. However YOUR choice should cost YOU money not ME.

    Then you will love my solution. Raise the federal minimum wage to $20/hr.

    How is that a solution?

    I love it when dumb asses who don't have a clue try to explain economics.

    So tell me how raising the federal minimum wage is a solution so I can debase your ignorant solution and laugh at you.

    Beautiful !

    Just got notice that staring 1/2/2021, that the 'ORANGE BABOON' is gonna' send me $300. a week for 11 weeks, while I await my recall to my airport support job.

    Hmm, doing the math, that's $300. 'snakes' a week x11 = $3,300, which will go into my 'stash' of $25 Grand so far, PLUS another $600.

    Who the Christ would have ever thought that I stash $30 Grand, non taxable Do' Re' Mi' in a Fire proof safe, deep in the back yard. Pay taxable bank interest on this bread' ? NO F - W. You'd have to be smoking CRACK to think like that !!

    PS, Who's picking up the US huge debt for all this money T-Rump's spent since this FOOL took office ???

    How'd similar actions work out on the left coast?
    Guy who loves Trump the way you do is going to accept Trump Bucks?
    So you'll swallow for $300 a week?
    Hypocrite much?

    People think money grows on trees.
    Some KommieFornie cities have $15 min wage.
    Big Box stores can absorb some costs and remain profitable with thin margins as they pass costs over billions of dollars and raise modest prices over their vast inventory.
    Small businesses are screwed.

    Great. Doesn’t change the fact that the government subsidized most of your wife’s paycheck for most of this year.

    It is not his government aid he is talking about making people lazy. It is anyone else's government aid.
