Where are we getting this from?

I work a job that anyone with a GED can get, I am paying on a new car, live in one of the nicer apartments in my city, invest 4% into 401k and 2% into stock, pay my bills and still have enough left over to keep up on new gadgets and go out and have a good time when I want to.

Perhaps living within your means is difficult.

Cellphones are not a necessity, communication is. Landlines are affordable and any cell phone, active or not, as long as it can power on and function will call 911.

That is all you ever "need" a cellphone for. And even then if you're at poverty level the government has plans to give you basic service for free, INCLUDING text messaging, which is not a necessity! MSN IM isn't a f...

Unfortunately I am one of them. I used to be in the military and I can tell you directly that some good does come from the taxation we do see.

Not to mention how good we have it in the grand scheme.

When I was in Holland the tax rate was darn near 40% for the locals in middle class. Thank God I was getting tax free since I was deployed. I bought most of the beer for people I met when I was there, to say the least.

Perhaps straw man? Living within my means is difficult, but you won't see me depending upon credit cards, loans or flat out not pay my bills. I have adjusted my lifestyle accordingly.

I am indeed able to afford it and I never insinuated that I can't, so I'm confused as to why you felt it necessary to point that out.

And even then if you're at poverty level the government has plans to give you basic service for free, INCLUDING text messaging, which is not a

None of those statements are directed at you, though they are commonly worded in a way that might seem like it is, my fault. Let me expand.

Living within your means goes for anyone, the "your" being inclusive to the person at the time. I didn't post it as a question, but as a statement that "living within ones means" can be difficult for a nation that has become addicted to credit. Maybe the statement made in quotations is a better way for you to understand that it is not inclusive to you but Americans in general.

It appears that I wrongly assumed in this case. Irony is grand, isn't it?
