40% of all student loan debt comes from Grad students which make 100% of the higher debt loads
Once again, who gives a crap what level they are at in college, we're talking about the ability to finance a mortgage. Doesn't matter if you have a 4 year degree or a grad degree, if you're carrying a ton of school debt, it makes it a whole lot tougher to get approved for a mortgage..
It happened again. Remember a month or so ago when I wrote about warning messages I was getting when I'd click into certain posts. Well, it just happened on this thread.
Apparently your virus scan doesn't like images posted on that site at that funny-pics- site. It must know from past experience that some people inserted viruses in images there. Some people post image tags to pictures they post here so they don't have to save them on their computers (like when they post from work).
If we stick around? If there is any doubt at all about sticking around then why buy? If not the why worry, you have to live somewhere. Why pay rent when you don't have to unless you can earn enough more than the rent with your 268k cash to make renting worth the hassle.
Anyhow, am I crazy for considering buying now? I see a bunch of shit going on in the world, but at the rate I'm paying rent - this seems to pencil out math wise, if we stick around for a while.
The question is, if this shit goes south, would you feel confident that your landlord is still paying his mortgage with the rent you're paying him, or risk having the sheriff showing up to evict you because he didn't?
Is knowing you lost opportunity use of the $268K versus having a firm roof/shelter over your head worthwhile for the peace of mind it will provide?
I do feel sorry for a high school drop out working at Home Depot, or a non college educated America working at home depot and a non trade show Skill American working at home depot
There you go.. I wasn't referring to the high school kid or non-educated... but you refuse to read and learn.
There are many EXPERIENCE workers at Home Depot (business people, experience contractors, etc.) who are working there because they can't find work in their former career or industry. I wouldn't expect you to understand that...
Logan feels working full time at Home Depot making $15/hr is awesome, e
If that's all you can do, that's all you go do then
And that's the problem with your skewed narrative... you just want to count "bodies" employed versus reality on the ground... Kinda of the same problem with the government today. Income down, general costs of goods up, I wonder why the "recovery" has been so weak the last 7 years...
Those wonderful "full time" jobs are not helping as household income is IN DECLINE while Home Prices RISE
Somehow, Logan feels working full time at Home Depot making $15/hr is awesome, even though that same worker use to have a job paying $30/hr with full benefits. Hey, the government stats tell us UE is at 5%, so every thing is great and tons of people will be buying new houses on their new $15./hr wage..
I use to fly the US flag during national holidays. Based on the current direction of the country and choices made by our current leaders, I don't fly it anymore. I was going to fly the US flag upside down, the universal distress sign, but my wife thought that would be too radical.
So, below is the flag I choose to fly now. Those who currently serve and have served in the past get my respect.
We are only missing 2.8 million Americans from the peak of the previous cycle in terms of prime age labor force growth
The problem with your thesis is, one it's wrong, there are a lot more not working..
Second, "full employment" includes people working 4 hours a week for $8./hr. when they use to work 40 hours a week for $20./hr. I know you like to spew the Obama "full employment" and "job creation" bullshit, but if you really think this represents "full employment", you need to share with us what you're smoking.
