You had to wear the school gym uniforms & I made my own (picture a t-shirt with the Superman 'S' but instead of the S I had a 'B'. It was black and fuchsia) I met my HS sweetheart in that class. I was the man. Son.

Anyway, no summer or night school for me. I had to work full time to pay rent (got kicked out of home early and had my first crib at 17) and support a pregnant Senior.

Those trips to planned parenthood sucked. WTF?? This wasn't planned. A nicka got trapped. Oh well, I love my son. Both my sons. I'm still the man.

What now, son? I have people old enough to be my parents reporting to me now. Yalls dudes need to live. Then make things right wit God. Cuz the end is nigh.

Fooling anyone into what?

Petty insult? No. I've just gathered from your rants that you have a certain perception that is not tied to reality, and I'm calling you on it.

This guy doesnt have a leg to stand on. All he's doing is overgeneralizing, assuming, and not doing any research and regurgitating some shit he heard elsewhere.

Most definitely because you exhibit haughty and arrogant qualities mixed in with a bit of verbiage. This isn't a discussion on the financial crisis; needless to say, it seems that making an off-the-cuff remark about ones displeasure of this particular industry (rightly so, I believe) seems to kindle the most invective reactions from some individuals (bankers or not). As I said before, many people have expressed similar views and when I say 'you're not fooling anyone' I mean that blanket dismissals of views as 'not tied to reality' simply won't do.

Anyone who makes any comments on this subject - and these are generalisations: I'm not writing an essay - is based on 'regurgitated knowledge' - what else could it be? But suffice to say, my views, and knowledge thereof, is gleamed from reputable sources - but tell me exactly, what 'knowledge' have I presented that is egregiously wrong? I haven't presented anything whatsoever - the only thing that seems to be the case is that you've got all emotional because I said I was 'unimpressed with the banking industry'. Cry me a river and grow up.

I'm not saying, nor have I ever said, anything of detail on the financial crisis.

I know what an investment banker does, thanks.

So, on topic, my first full-time salary was under $10K.  I don't remember exactly what it was, but I think it was $600 something a month.  In 1989 E1's* in the Army were not exactly paid well. This was before college.

 

In the early 1990's I did sales on commission (a few industries) and was usually in the $25-30K range (not bad money in 1992 or 1993 when living at home and without a college degree or any real skills).

 

My first teaching job was $36K/yr (2006).

 

*E1= Private, E1 is the pay grade, private is the rank.

$24k, on a GED in 2008 working for Obama. Field organizers/junior database managers don't get paid too well on campaigns.

Then I moved to the AFL-CIO and started getting that union money. Sigh. I miss that.

Also cheers.gif NORE for not graduating high school.
