Any person with a pulse and half a brain can get a free ride to a decent university. If they don't earn it, they won't go.

I disagree. Choosing not to have children until both me and my spouse are financially well off, stable, and content with living in one location for the foreseeable future are all good reasons to abstain from giving birth children.

I predict that by age 30, I'll probably be in that situation. Right now, none of those are priorities of mine, and I have no intention of even thinking about kids.

Also, I'll pay for my kids college tuition, room, and board. But they'll have to learn to live on a budget for extra food, books, and entertainment. That stuff they will need to get a job for. That's just my opinion though.

Why is Obama suddenly buying votes when every other incumbent President has done it as well?
It was more or less to point at how stupid people are, not the program itself. I think the vast majority of this population is incapable of choosing a President that fits everyone's best interest

Worked at costco for 5 months + drill pay. Decided working while in school wasn't a good idea. I also claimed 0 which is why I'm kinda shaking my head at your return.

See, I'm willing to admit that. You can cut spending in the defense budget and keep everything we currently have. Something as simple as the army not switching uniforms every x years or not going with something that works because another service(Marines) own those patterns. There are plenty of organizations that just throw money around, I'm sure you can think of some as well. My point was, it needs to be watched more closely when the checks get written. Get the most bang for the buck.

Can you program in ladder logic and don't mind field time in North Dakota? We'll pay $70K per year, in fact with OT more than likely you'll clear 70K even with your AGI...

It's not a single person, it's a publicly traded Fortune 150 company, you ignorant twat.


Most Fortune 500 companies pay at least that, but you wouldn't know because you have no hope of even getting an interview lol.

This is true. I actually hesitated before I sent that, but Blake insulting my employer kind of got to me.

No harm in stating the truth though (in reference to the part you quoted).

And that was some years ago, no? So adjusted for inflation, you were probably making more.

But you're an engineer, no?
