I don't make it a habit of lying. I'll probably see Phil tonight. I'll take a picture with him if I can. He's a great guy and I've known him for at least 15 years. He lives in Chester, PA, near the casino.

I do not need to make things up, unlike leftists who constantly lie about everything. Just earlier in the thread batair admitted he lied about having children. The left lies because they need to in order to support their idiotic opinions on everything, it's downright pathetic.

I'll take a picture with me and Phil tonight (if I see him) and PM it to you if you wish.

While I can understand the lack of buying meaningless stuff, how do you manage rent and groceries? Buying clothes and eating out is mostly worthless so I can see cutting all of that out, but the housing seems impossible.

Well first off rents cheap in kansas city. like i have a nice apartment and its 700 a month. I could've gone cheaper too. i dont have cable i just have computer and netflix. Sometimes i run out of money but eventually i usually find a way to pay for things. Im pretty creative about that. I have good health insurance from work and also im using honest hardworking tax payer dollars for my mental health.

kansas city has slowly become a cooler city. I think its a top notch city for brokes. when i visited SF i thought to myself a lot of those homeless people would just be living in a 400 a month apartment off troost in kc.

I doubt it's too hard to find a homeless person to take a picture with for $10.

I suppose this is mostly driven from capital gains. It becomes a large source of income over time, I'm not surprised.

I don't know if they are worse off, as "poor" has always sucked. But the gap seems to get worse.

I can easily prove it if you'd like to enter a bet. I'd be ecstatic to give him the winnings. Let me know within the hour and I'll provide proof of every claim I've made about him. Name, living location, status, history and our personal history.

Let's do between 300-5000 dollars? Quote to book.

Re: President Trump

900 square feet for 700 is great value, and there're people paying way less for housing who're happy with their situation. All you've gotta do is add a girlfriend into the mix and your housing cost can be cut in half.

This survey of expert economists is pretty opposed as well, with 60% opposed and only 2% in favor. Hmm...that is troubling.

I can't let this slide.

BLS Data on Employer costs for Employee Compensation

Basically a measure of total compensation paid by employers.

In 1991 it was about $16 an hour. n 2001 the average was $22.15 an hour. As of March of 2017 it is $35.28 an hour. That's like an increase of 60% since 2001 and over 100% since 1991. The BLS breaks things down pretty well by occupations, types of employment, etc.

What could go wrong with a bet where you could easily just pay someone to vouch for your story? Get a brain, moran.

I'll provide documentation. He keeps his ID and veterans card (or whatever that thing is) on him at all times. I'll also get him to bring a utility bill to prove where he lives. I'll also record a video interview with him confirming our history and will even let you speak to him on the phone and ask him any questions you want on the fly about me and him so you can be assured it's not scripted.

You implied I was making it up, I'm offering you a way to prove if I am or not. Go ahead, take the bet.
