I have been saying these forever! Thanks Tomi! :wub:

So 100K is rich now? I thought it was repubs that thought 250k was the poor house. She literally did not make a single decent point/argument in that entire video. Made if she would've listened in college, instead of looking for every shred of liberalism, she could've formulated a coherent thesis statement and defense.

Hell, $100K almost doesn't give you access to being in the upper 20% of earners. The average income of earners in the 80%-90% bracket is $166,149. She's got a bit to go.

You are starting to gain a sense of humor John.

Gerbil girl there seems to have learned to market herself early.

Funny video.

The last thing I need these days is a brain washed 22 year old telling me she has the world figured out.

At least he brightened up enough lately to take down what I assume were his exact map coordinates to his house in Colorado Springs in location.

The Cubans would have came straight to your house when they invaded, John.

Is amusing how paranoid he acts after having a posted location you could just drive to for years.

:rolleyes:

100k/year is a big jump from the 60-80 percentile....won't be long now before the left starts suggesting that it is the cut for upper America, we all know this is the demographic that will foot most of the social justice tab anyway

100k a year is a whole lot of money if you're living off royalties in some podunk town in Kentucky. That is enough money to afford a nice lakefront house and a boat and a few other toys.

100k in NYC is yeah pretty much nothing.

$100k a year in NYC is an extremely good living and is approximately 200% of the median household income for the city. Even when adjusted for cost of living it would be about 150% of the country's median household income or more, depending on what borough you live in.

It's always hilarious to me when people try to go on about how $100k (or $250k or whatever) is a pittance to live on in New York. Completely clueless. Sure New York is expensive, but $100k being pretty much nothing? What a joke.

We've had, oh I don't know, a billion threads about $100k being "Rich" or "Not Rich"

Bottom line is that it is well over median household income, but doesn't really come close to the super rich incomes.

There's your answer.

Is it retard or fucktard your middle name? :rolleyes:

That's a very snappy comeback. You have really put in my place.

On a serious note I'm glad you haven't lost your mind yet to the point of shooting up a clinic. There is still time for you to step off the path you are on.

There are very few 22-year-olds I would trust to advise me on how to live my life, and she is not one. With all due respect, I see a very pretty face (the God-given advantage she received and does not, apparently, credit) spouting a lot of glib platitudes. Not really what I would consider insightful commentary.

This. This right here. Even in Manhattan $100k is substantially more than median income for the borough. You can only believe that $100k is 'nothing' in NYC if you don't consider the people delivering food on their bikes and cleaning houses to be people worthy of consideration. Many of the same people think that a $15 minimum wage ($30k/year) is obscene. Less than a third of 'nothing'.
