Happy New Year

Posted by mikenopolis on January 1, 2006

Another year has gone by. How many more to go…Life is too long, whoever said that life is short needs to die. There is NOTHING anyone can do that’s longer than life NOTHING! I would kill myself, but there are two important people in my life that depends on me, and lets not forget the pets (how can you not live for them?)

When I was young, I dreamed of having 2 nice cars, a beautiful 3 bedroom house a few blocks from a beach, the whole white picket fence and 2.5 children. I’m not sure when it happened, but I know for a fact that it is unrealistic. I mean what’s with the increase in home prices. My current house was purchased 3 years ago for $200,000, it’s now appraised at $570,000.

Minimum wage has increased from what? $4.25/hr to $7.25 hr in the past 13 years? I have calculated this before, if you make this much you end up with NOTHING after you pay rent. How does anyone climb out from this?

I hope something happens for the “poorer than me people” this year, I don’t need my house price to double in 3 years. It was a dump when I got it, it still is. I think the U.S. government should get off their lazy butts and put that money into healthcare or use it to raise minimum wage. This is a classic example that the “haves” continue to have more and the have-nots continue to be have-nots.
