If anything, I think the pushback on my statement reveals how out of touch some people here may be. Hey, $250,000 sounds great to me too, especially as a single guy. But the point was already made in this thread that what most "ordinary Americans" imagine...

Way to devote a single word to an admission that Piobaire may be right on this issue. Obviously those prices for suits and shoes are sky-high, but I'm willing to bet that many of the...
Quote: Originally Posted by briancl I think this thread is going about it backwards. You don't say that "if you can afford to save money and put your kids through college, you are middle class." The middle class is the 25-75% chunk of Americans, regardless of their income, ability to save or have a house. The point of many politicians harping on the middle class is that the 25-75% chunk of Americans used to be able to save money and put their kids...
This is bad, and I'm glad it's been taken down from the web site. Next up, maybe all the "Abort Sarah Palin" stickers will be removed from cars. I'm sick of this shit from both sides.

Quote: Originally Posted by james nicolas also, for everyone else, there's 3 days left to place and pay for an order with decreasing interest every run i may stop the service after this or the next order unless things pick up it's just not worth it to place an order of 3 items for only one person I'd like to order, but it can't be till after this Friday. Can you get hats at wholesale prices?

Quote: Originally Posted by Étienne That it is very good? In terms of taxpayer protection, partial nationalization like the UK (and later one the rest of Europe) is planning is much more efficient than the Paulson plan with its insanely complex set of rules designed to recoup some of the cost. Just to clarify, I was asking an honest question, not being sarcastic. I wanted to hear from knowledgeable people the pros and cons of such a plan, and...
