this just makes me laugh

im not a class warrior, especially on here. But every now and again, i run across an article that is so ridiculous i have to post it.

washington post clicky

this dude says that making 250k a year is basically not that much after...wait for it...TAXES are taken out.

seriously, man?

250k is SIX TIMES the national household income (as stated in his article)
250k is the top 2.9% (as stated in his article)
just let those two stats sink in.
you be livin in the top 97.1% of the nation.
that's an A+ average.
you ain't no middle class,
and you can definitely get cheese on your whopper.

if you can't make it with that much money, guess what...YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!!!
and maybe, just maybe, you're not that good with money, and you're living beyond your means.

hahaha. 250k. at this point in my life, that's just an absurd amount of money.
though, i guess, there are people in all income brackets that suck at managing money.
just kinda sad to see folks with loads of dough, squander it all.
and the only way i'll see 250k anytime soon, is if i rob a few banks or hit the lotto.

gotta be in it to win it!

it makes me shake my head in disbelief. If a couple making $250k can't make it I might as well give up.... ;-)
