    I keep seeing Europe and mention of their free schooling as justification for the current suggestion of just forgiving all these student loans. You are comparing a process that is already in place, and everybody has the process to now take advantage of...to a process that only impacts the people who made worse decisions. I know we have already had this discussion, but what exactly happens...

    I have 5G internet now

    I really don't get how they get away with calling that 5G. We had wireless 3-5 mb internet to my parents rural house (the closest town has like 250 people and only dial up was available before this) in like...2005-2006. This was about 2-3 miles from the tower the dude put up on his lot. This was comparable to 3G service available at the time. I'd expect anything labeled as 5G to get like...

    Looking up more on his history, he certainly has stayed relatively consistent with his views, which is rare to see. One ironic thing I saw is that Bernie Sanders himself said in 2010 that "enough is enough...how many homes can you own". It was used to argue against the extension of the bush tax cuts. The irony is just that he himself now owns 3 homes. Obviously it doesn't completely demolish...

    I do try to read up at least some on politicians. It's generally headlines, which obviously can be used just to get people interested in raunchy stuff. The 45% tax you refer to is the estate tax, which doesn't impact the person who earned the money initially...at all. It impacts the people who ultimately inherit it. Further, while he is pushing to lower the exemption amount, he still only...

    What is a just standard of living though? That's the million (billion...trillion???) dollar question. I guess my issue with this has always been, who is the decider of said standard. I've lived in situations in my own life below what some people see this standard as, and personally been ok. That is a single scenario, and obviously doesn't apply to all, but it makes me struggle to visualize...

    It is the internet, so it's entirely possible I've been duped by a bullshit graph since anybody can create them.It's a chart, as everybody seemed so inclined to want to follow before (since comparing a single year to a single year can result in some discrepancies...kind of like comparing stock market returns from 1929/1930 to present instead of 1925 just to exclude the depression). ...

    My argument the entire time has been on a square foot basis, and I've been bringing up the square foot note since the beginning as justification for the larger than inflation increase. So please don't change my argument. For reference, here is the table I utilized. https://www.aei.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/housing2.png ...

    Let's go back to...is our argument that everybody should be able to afford what is currently an "average" house. I might even bite to that and say it's a legitimate argument. The current quality of life for the poor in our country isn't amazing. Its not worse than it was 50+ years ago (which is what got me fired up in the first place), but it's not amazing. I don't know a perfect fix,...
