    Get a dump truck like your Dad did.
    If you do and there is work in the area I promise you will love it.

    Did that for 5 years for him, one on my own. What I do now is better, IMO. Too seasonal.

    Long distance is nice but can lead to depression. I would be up for leaving but by the time the day was over I would rather be doing some else then laying in that bunk.. Lets face it over the road is a 24 hour a day job.

    The tax rate on business is 35%
    Yes there are big companies that get out of paying by the use of loopholes and accounting tricks
    However, a lot of those options a e not available to small businesses

    Yep. Bernie's socialized medicine will put their illnesses in front of the death panel. Keeping them in good health might be considered a "bad investment" at their age.

    About a month ago, I saw a bum on the corner holding a sign that said something like, "need money for food, God Bless".
    And he had a cigarette in his mouth.:biglaugh:

    Priorities? What priorities.

    Good point. BarryCare was supposed to be close to utopia for healthcare, so after 7 years, what could possibly need fixed?

    And the advertisers on TV and radio target the middle and upper income people to try to get them to spend the money that they are sitting on, but it takes common sense, responsibility, and will power to put the money away instead of spending it.
    You reap what you sew.

    They also blame that damn polywog for penetrating the woman's egg for the babies that they abort. It had nothing to do with their irresponsible behavior.

    You guys like coming back with this "ALL" b.s. as a defense. How lame.

    Never say never, and never say always. Ever heard that before?

    So they made a choice and they need to sleep in the bed that they made for themselves. Their lack of will power isn't my problem.

    I have more stress than any poor person could have. I work for a living, and long hours on top of it, but still can't afford all of the better things that life has to offer for my family. That's not only stressful, but it's as frustrating as hell.

    Getting rich isn't most people's goal in life, but living comfortable is. Luckily for our poor people, lazy people, and our wasteful Govt., most of us won't give up on eventually getting comfortable financially.

    Yep. And that's exactly why we can not afford to have another left wing radical in the White House.
    Vote accordingly.

    You are guilty of taking this stuff too personal. Get over yourself. You take our comments personally. That's why you end up getting shitty with your responses.

    No I don't take it personal. I only get shitty with responses when the situation warrants. I've said many times before, we can debate the low road or the high road. I'm comfortable either way.

    Tada! :soapbox:

    But seriously, again with the assumption that poor people don't work?
