I'm guessing building codes and/or lawyers are to blame.

Over 15 billion a year into social security that they will never see back. It's a gift basically since they can't collect social security or use medicare. Estimates are 10-15 billion paid in state and local taxes, 5-6 billion paid in federal taxes.

How does that compare what we pay for all of them in jail,. in our schools, and what we spend to try to keep them out?

The story is that people tend to make bad decisions when they manage their money in the stock market. They are likely to sell at a low point after the market has just taken a big tumble, as has happened in the last two weeks. Then they buy back in during a run-up, paying much more than if they'd just held on to their stock.

Yeah, STUPID people!

It's really not that hard to just buy stocks for the dividends and ignore the value of the stocks and when you have enough dividend income to retire, then you retire.

Wait a minute: You drive/fly to Mexico/China/Korea to get a Bic Mac and fries?

No. I was simply pointing out that Denmark, Australia, Switzerland aren't taking US jobs. Mexico, China, India, Brazil ARE the competition. We need to be compared to the countries that are taking our jobs. Not 2 small European countries that aren't. We are losing jobs because we price ourselves out of the market, just like Europe. We need to imitative places with high growth rates, not Europe.

Blurtman is jealous of Judge Judy's popularity and fortune!

I could do her show.

Would be awesome to see APOCALYPSEFUCK substitute for her for a few episodes.

You mean see who is willing to do the work for the wage offered.

Corrected:
You mean see who is willing to do the work for the paltry wage offered.

We already have an idiot proofed retirement system:

McDonald's workers in Denmark, Australia, Switzerland make $15 or more/hr, plus mandatory benefits, paid vacation and sick time, mat leave, etc. $21 in Denmark.

How about quoting the wages for McDonalds workers in countries that are our main economic competition, like Mexico, China, India, Brazil, Kirea, etc instead?

I got gas at a Wawa in Woodston, NJ earlier today for $2.009/gallon for regular 87 octane unleaded gas.

Judge Judy is totally awesome and is the Donald Trump of TV show judges. That's why she is so popular.

The people that are on her show are losers.

Without work, you sometimes can't afford to eat. You don't get that, grasp that?

What you said makes no sense.

People would starve by the millions

How so? Would people somehow forget to eat?

So, then you're OK paying 4X for your house to escape a few months of humidity?

Not sure I could handle the east coast summer humidity.

You'll learn to like it

Not really. I have lived on the East coast for 50 years and still haven't gotten used to the humidity.

Baltimore City. The closer yo get to the burned out CVS, the cheaper the real estate gets. Yes I do live in Baltimore City. Yes, it does get a lot of rain, and some snow as well, if you like that kind of thing.
