## What are you doing?

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

In other words, I'm not making a case. You are. I'm agreeing with those who have said you're incorrect, and offering an example of a situation in which your claims are clearly not a solution to anything.

If you offer no specifics, then its just your undiscussed opinion about some generality you agree with. You may not think that they are a solution, but many people who earn less than you would.

Bring specific examples that we can discuss, a friend perhaps, whose business you can share. Nothing can be solved when one person asks for another persons specific reasoning and they refuse to accommodate the discussion.

The opinion has been discussed, with you, in various ways. I'm not the only one who holds the opinion. You've been discussing it for pages and pages. I offered an "I agree with those people because..." and then explained why.

You offered no specifics and did not explain why those specifics lead you to feel comfortable. You offered vague ideas to support your opinion, no evidence face it.

The whole point of what I said was just to highlight that merely raising wages doesn't truly fix anything. You said you think it's necessary for a person to make over $20/hr to stay out of poverty. I said I make considerably less than that and am quite comfortable. If what you said was true, my situation would not be what it is, I would not be comfortable, and I'd be looking for a better job loll. Also I thought it was fairly well explained. I pay for all of my necessities, and I did state what those necessities are, and have some left over for a few creature comforts, as well as having money put away for my retirement. Is that not specific enough or what? Last edited by Blurry on Wed Sep 27, 2017 12:51 am, edited 1 time in total. "Nothing is original.

Does this seem like a reasonable budget to you? This is what you've surmised by being dishonest. My actual budget is none of your business. Suffice to say, I live on my own and pay all of my own bills, my rent is actually higher than average for the area I live in, I have several thousand dollars saved, and I make quite a bit less than$20/hr. If you want to talk specific numbers, why don't you post your own.

You don't have to post your own budget as I have already said, post figures about friends or family who live as you do comfortably on way less than $20.84.

Would you say he lived a life to be envied?

Perhaps his life style contributed to his longevity.

I'd say he lived a life, which is more than a lot of people manage to do. Whether it's an enviable one is in the eye of the beholder.
