Here you go you stupid shit.

I used his search above, "Clinton don't talk to military", and added "-trump" when the first page of results were all about Hillary Clinton instead of Bill Clinton.

That link was the third link after that very simple search. You stupid shit.

I'm not the one who thought up that situation. I was just showing how much money it was. Notice I finished my post with an example of what I thought would help the situation, building cheaper housing that let 4 guys share rent.

I don't know why so many people in the cities want to each have their own apartment at $2000 a month. But I am tired of hearing people complain about how expensive it is.

Depends on the job. If it's something anyone with a pulse can do, then there's no real skill or reason for great pay.

There is a reason: basic respect for the person doing the job. Asking someone to work two full-time jobs just to be able to split the rent on a single apartment and still need food stamps is dehumanizing.

Two full time jobs would produce quite a good monthly income. Using $8/hr as a wage, that would be $8 x 40 hours x 4 weeks x 2 jobs. That's $2560 before taxes.

If the person is splitting rent with a roommate, and the roommate works the same schedule, they have $5000 a month income to pay rent and buy food.

It seems like you would be doing more good by buying land in various locations, and building cheap apartments that let 4 guys share rent on one space. Then they can use their excess money to buy beer, and keep their girlfriends happy with cheap baubles.

I'm of the opinion that anyone doing full-time work deserves a wage to live on. Meager living fine, but enough for a roof over one's head and food in one's mouth.

Fine. You start a business, and pay all your workers with that idea in mind. Make sure it's a large business with dozens of employees performing common jobs that don't require much skill. Pay them what you feel is fair.

Come back after it goes bankrupt, and let us know what you found out.

Don't forget Abe Vigoda's part in that episode. His character, Fish, had a brownie or two, and felt really good. He drags in a young guy that he arrested, and the guy is going on about how the old man chased him down, over rooftops and jumping between buildings. Then Fish finds out there is hash in the brownies, and looks sad. They as him why he's sad, and he says, "It's the first time in years I feel good, and it's illegal."
