Are you Sean Spicer just lurking?

And please explain how my current dire circumstanses are MY fault.

*running out of door frames to smash my head against*

My original post basically amounted to "wouldn't it be great if we had a more reasonable tax code across all brackets".

This was your very first response based on me even broaching the subject:

I seriously despise people with your mindset.

"I'm making money. I have a business. Make it all about me. **** everyone else."

If that's not proof you are not in a good headspace to have reasonable discussions with people on here, I don't know what more proof you need. I'm sorry if you are dealing with a bad life situation right now, but you are hostile to an absolutely mind boggling extent.

Chula i feel for you and your current situation, and i understand how that can bias you or make these topics hard to discuss calmly but im try to remain objective as possible in these kinds of discussions. If you think there is a flaw in my thinking or im naive then explain to me why. With that said i think you really need to take a break from the poli section for your own sake, this thread has done nothing but get you annoyed. Enjoy the rest of the forum with us.

Personal Debt is a massive issue in this country and it isn't explained as simply as "spending beyond your means"

contributing factors are:

1. Declining and stagnating wages
2. Rising costs of living
3. Our insane private healthcare system (number 1 cause of bankruptcy)
4. Our commodity culture and the billions spent by financial institutions and producers on advertising to convince people to buy on credit (our economy depends on it)

You answer questions like a politician. By that i mean you say a lot and nothing at all.

I'm trying to answer it politely like one of my professors might instead of just laughing at your very layman's drunk dude at a pub understanding of issues

DwnWthVwls 04-27-2017 09:58 PM

You dont even know my understanding. I asked a question regarding the point at which we assist people vs making them take responsibilty for their **** ups and you decide to lecture me about the factors of personal debt as if its at all relevant to my question/one dimensional example.

If I were a professor, I'd want one of these buttons in my office.

The Hill - Trump has a red button on his desk that orders Coke

If by "take responsibility" you mean cut assistance and let them starve then the answer for anyone who isn't a monster is "never"

But I'm rejecting the entire premise of your question because it's naive

Chula

I know this is an incredibly low bar but if it makes you feel any better I'm pretty sure I'm more ****ed than you are.

What pisses me off is that banks expect to give high interest loans with so little risk. I don't give a **** about paying those ****s back. **** my credit.
