You must be oblivious to the amount of debt and inflation around you. That, and el presidente is about to enable millions of illegal immigrants the ability to work on the cheap and vote themselves "free" shit. Oh, and that throws the entire black community under the bus whom are already competing for jobs of the same ability. Meanwhile, they send over a net 20+ billion in wealth (per year) from the US compounding the hemorrhaging effect on the economy.

I won't convert, and for her to do the same would at minimum be disowned by her family, or at worst "honor killed". They're not the most tolerant of the bunch. Besides, I prefer women that weren't conditioned to be nothing more than "human ovens to bake loaves". That relationship would get pretty boring pretty fast.

Texas doesn't have a state income tax. As such we pay for ours in the form of high property taxes. For the Houston are and surrounding (Katy), taxes got hiked 15% in one year for some people. So whether you've owned the house for 20 years (and paid off) or 1, the taxes alone could outstrip what you make a year, thus forcing you to relocate or get a better paying job. In theory, it's a self correcting system. You can't have lower income people not afford to live near work that's viable to being able to live. So either property values in some areas stagnate, or they raise with wage inflation. Right now in Houston, it's too expensive for the solid middle and lower middle class to have a family. That's because of a combination of foreign Chinese investment (Sugar Land for example) and people from wealthier states relocating and buying a home 100% in cash with room to buy a car or two. If you've lived in Houston all your life working Houston wage rates, you can't compete against that as a first-time homebuyer.

The police don't want war. In fact, they typically go after the low hanging fruit in offenders. You could be downloading an illegal copy of a movie from Starbucks and be busted while simultaneously a drug addict and a pimp are engaged in some sort of dispute across the street. Yeah, fuck that. Too much trouble. But hey, easy quota right?

Like Steve Jobs in that he delivered a product that people would like and provided excellent customer service. For all his personal flaws, it's leaders like him, Musk, and Ford that paved the way towards American exceptionalism. But the real take-away from these men isn't that they're rare, but that we all have the capacity to emulate them however small or big in the market; be it in a small town restaurant, or fortune 500 company. America, and the rest of the world for that matter could learn a lot from them in how they value their customer.

They don't need to be ADULTS until they're 35!

In some parts of the world, you're a grand father at 35!!! During the American Civil War, 20% of the soldiers were under 18.

BTW, adulthood in America is 21 while it's 18 for most of the world.

Note: 8 year old GIRLS are considered adults in Iran and Saudi Arabia. Never mind that girls can become fertile way WAY before the rest of their body (and pelvis) is ready for childbirth (and death of the mother as a result). The prophet Mohamed stands as an example for the Muslims, so natural it's the law. I have zero respect for Islamist BTW. Those fuckers can die in fire for all I care.
