    I guess my point was more obscure than I expected. My family has reached enough just far enough into comfort that I didn't have to ask *if* we had the money. In the past, we struggled and there were set limits. We're both working, our house has half equity, vehicles are paid off and maintained. Everyone has health insurance, dental, etc. I believe we have 2 active credit accounts, but those are more just f-around expenditures than *needing* credit for daily living.

    What I find sad is that is FAR from the norm in this country. Those people in the bottom half won't ever have it that good. Ever. And that is what's wrong with the system. No house to build equity. No money in savings.

    I've made the journey from *poor* to not-so-bad. Very few do.

    People do waste money on *some* things. Many more things take advantage of their difficult circumstances. Rent. Low wages. Cost of living. Healthcare.

    Lots do if they are motivated and want too, and what is nice is living in a Democratic society gives you the opportunity to better yourself....
    I am glad you are doing well and the most important is you are happy and healthy and the same with your family

    Again people waste more money than you really can think of, but it is irrelevant, and one thing the Democrats did think of that was great in my eyes was to try to lower interests rates on credit cards!!!, and i hope both Dems and Reps can sooner or later come up with some sort of relief for health care, that will work for the people that don't have private insurance, it is really important and paying rent you do get taxable benefits for lower incomes..

    But always remember and even Sanders said this, you can't have tons of immigration and solve the Health Care issues/cost, that is why i laugh at thinking Open Borders is good for any country...

    Another True story......

    I went with my Mother inlaw the other day shopping a grocery store, (I get a deal from the Butcher when i buy chuck roasts that i have him ground up for my hamburgers). so before i walk in the store there is a female immigrant standing in front with a sign made out of cardboard saying "I just lost my job and have 3 kids at home", I was fucking disgusted!! I know she gets housing food, full health care (better than i get!!!), all her drugs paid for!!! on my taxes!!!, yet she is still begging for money!!!! I was livid!!! I yelled out where are your kids that you are here begging for money that my taxes and government is paying everything for you to be here!!!, She didn't answer!!, I know she is sending the money back home to other parts of her family, and she has never worked a day in her life !!!!, Then i thought her kids must be in daycare that the Government and taxes pay for!!! , And she was supposed to be looking for a job!!!! Not begging for cash that she can steal on top of the shit she is getting !!! A ton more than a true Canadian Citizen that may have hard luck or trying to make ends meet!!!!

    Sorry that bothers me beyond belief!!!... Vetted immigration is good for any country Meg, but keep putting stress on services, and believe me if you get Socialized health care there (I doubt that will ever happen tho) if people get a small cut on there finger they run to the hospital!!!! and you have the potential to sit in emergency for fucking hours till you are seen!!!, I have never spoken to anyone in Florida that has private health insurance ever waiting like that!!! They thought that was fucked up!!!! And how many empty beds in the hospital because there is not enough nurses because of funds to monitor them, so the ward stays empty, while you can sit in the emergency for hours!!! to get admitted if needed. Even some friends i have have American Divisions for there job and cross the border because they are covered there, and get service right away(one had gastric bypass surgery there, had to wait over a year in Canada!!)...

    Edit: What i don't get is there may be some instances that warrants sympathy, but if the Democrats take more from the Middle Class in taxes etc. and you know it is going to happen!! what happens then?? Again there will always be poor people Meg, but in a Democracy society, they do have a chance to get out of it if they want too, it is proven that in any socialists or communists country/concept the poor have zero chance of bouncing back or bettering themselves, i mean i don't see lineups trying to get into Russia or other socialist countries?? There is no handcuffs on any American or Canadian that can't move somewhere else in the world??

    Just saying.....

    Sorry buddy but you i just have to say it is not the fault of the Economy nor the Government , nor your are not showing any stats on how many of them live beyond there means, you can say the same thing here in Canada, now you are telling me none of those 200 million own homes/pay mortgages, have families to provide for, i mean good credit if they need funds, putting money towards pension?? Your exaggeration is just not believable, and it goes back to people living beyond there means, buying/ leasing fancy cars, buying a house they really can just pull off, and so on...
    If you own a house in Toronto here most have mortgages between $500 thousand to a million dollars and have a1 credit and paying there bills, the same if you even make payments on a credit card or line of credit you will still have a+ credit ratings, Interest rates are low to borrow money and build equity if you have a stable job and especially if both spouses work, so i don't get the point you are trying to make Meg?? There are many many people that are investment/real estate rich and liquid cash poor, and you have over 330 million people that are legal citizens in America, and 200 million are cash poor?? And knowing for facts 190 million have private health insurance which means they have decent jobs. You do know illegals don't count , only maybe in the media outlets you choose to believe..
    Again a debate that will go nowhere, And i hope the Democrats try to use those stats, Trump will win even faster

    Edit: And maybe i should really add, that really when a there is a Democratic nominee , everything you hear now policies and all will be gone and more realistic policies will be voiced to compete and have a chance against Trump, i hope we are on the same page there?? I mean the removal of Farting cows won't exists anymore

    Pure White wholesome Geritol Oboma clone Democrat Biden 2020

    I will finish the night with these moron Democrat Left wing blunders....

    You have Amazon willing to build a satellite office in New York and requests tax rebate incentives to build. Now you have a stupid bartender thinking that the money/rebates requested is paid out by the city!!.. Now you fuck it all up and not gain the Billions in Taxes you will get from all the employees that make great incomes and buy housing, eat at restaurants, buy hard good and soft goods (Furniture etc), transportation revenues, tons of money that will go into the economy!!, Just a retarded bartender!!!!, with zero idea/vision of growth/infrastructure!!, now cities are begging and lining up to get Amazon to build in there cities

    It is like going into a dealership to purchase a car and see the sticker price(MSRP), and just paying that price, who has the leverage the consumer or the retailer/dealership LOL!!!, Capitalism 101!!!...

    Another new Left wing Democrat didn't understand how a commission salesmen could have fluctuating income and she is part of the finance house committee LOL!!! you just have to laugh your ass off!!!!

    And you talk about Republicans screwing up the country!! You have to give Pelosi credit when she said a cup of piss could have been voted in to some districts LOL!!! zero competition especially in prominent Democratic areas and one person to choose from. The irony is Pelosi is now afraid of these dummies, and she has more brains in her left tit than these morons!!!

    You're consistent. Not by any means a good way, but *consistent*.

    Non fitness related?

    Well true I have this idea that unnecessary purchases are what largely fuel the ecomony as well as create a whole ton of jobs for people who don't want to be farmers.

    If life has taught me anything it's that in the end all you really need is a good sword and a strong arm to wield it.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    Forgive her for having the affront to let coporate blackmail leave a bad taste in her mouth.

    As for the Democrats, the thing I find most egregious about the current lot is that their failure to open impeachment hearing on Trump only because it might end up hurting them politically. Your consititutional duty doesn't give a fuck if you get re-elected or not, you sniveling cowards.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    Also I think there is a lot of confusing of motivation with opportunity in this thread. I'm only saying that because I don't believe someone who works 2+ shit jobs 60+hrs a week just to get by is any less motivated(lazy) to succeed than your average Fortune 500 executive living the high life.
    It's all Meg's fault.
