Re: A pipe dream

I think you may find a correlation between the numer of 'parasite singles' and the size/cost of government. In the old days, it was possible to own a home, nice car and have the wife stay home and raise the children, all while having enough left over to save for the future. Oh, eh, income tax back then was less than one percent and property taxes... $12/year.

BS... ever heard of the credit crunch? People in this country don't own anything but debt. Personal debt in this country has skyrocketed over the past 3 decades and is part of the reason why the current recession is so painful.

In relative terms life is shorter than the blink of an eye. Remember that each and every day because in the end it's not about what you've done but how you've lived.

I think you missed the humor...

$12 property taxes....
less than 1% income taxes...

I own lots of things, and they are all debt-free. Personal responsibility and smart money management can be a wonderful thing.

or because the "free market" artifically brought prices for houses etc up to a price that younger people can no longer afford
