    How much money do you need to live comfortably?

    According to this year's "How America Shops" survey, it now takes an income of more than $150,000 to be able to afford the basics, some extras and to save, too.

    The basics, some extras, savings: You need $150,000 a year
    How much are you planning on saving each year? $100,000?

    Certainly not a successful business, but probably none.

    You feel the government has 'clear recognition'? They are using all the latest technology to spy millions of Americans and they couldn't even prevent the Boston bombings, despite being told in advance by the Russians. And yet you feel they might have 'clear recognition' regarding disease control??

    Not with a mission such as this...

    CDC's Role
    CDC 24-7 logoTaking the health pulse of our nation
    Detecting and responding to new and emerging health threats
    Tackling the biggest health problems causing death and disability for Americans
    Putting science and advanced technology into action to prevent disease
    Promoting healthy and safe behaviors, communities and environment
    Developing leaders and training the public health workforce, including disease detectives

    CDC - About CDC Mission & Vision
    Much like the police, the CDC seems to be there to investigate, stop the spread, and research, oh, and distribute pamphlets. Clear recognition is NOT in their mission statement anywhere.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Perhaps. But the poverty levels are ridiculously low. The point is, it takes a fair sum to live comfortably. I'd say if you have a family, 40K is rather low.

    It's terrible that I read. I know. I should just listen to Rush or Beck. But, that's who I am.

    And this article of yours, are you kidding here? So, if I don't have enough to as the article puts it, "spend frivolously" then I am poor? What kind of 'woe is me' type of clap trap is this?

    You know, you liberals pushed NAFTA, and Clinton signed it into law saying that opening up global markets was the way of the future, and further stated that the US could survive as a consumer society instead of a manufacturing based one, and everyone's lives would be OH so much better when they didn't have to work in those dirty factories, making paltry wages, while making "the man" rich....Then liberals started attacking business through regulation, and taxation until they jumped on board with the new global economy and moved away from the heavy regulation, and high taxation, and you blamed it on them because you think that making a profit is somehow a bad thing. Now you think that a shrunk tax base, terminal unemployment, and ever increasing attacks on wealth in this nation is somehow, magically going to solve what ills us...How butt stupid does one have to be?

    The path to prosperity is NOT to lower all boats to a level of near poverty, but to provide the opportunity to raise ones boat to wealth through hard work and innovation. Your ideas kill this, and you do so unwittingly by blindly following guilt laden, elitist, Bourgeoisie liberals that think their failed over, and over policies will somehow work for the little people, while they have NO intention of following them for themselves...I am sick of it!
    Don't make leaps. I never said anyone was assured of anything.

    Nor confuse me with NAFTA support.

    You do too much liberals and conservative stereotyping. I think it's because of what you read, tainting your reasoning ability, but the thing is actual people tend to not be so easily categorized.

    Nor has anyone said lower all boats. That too is a canned response. Do you even remember what we were talking about?

    He shows links. I said it was just the first of a search. Feel free to dig further.

    How would you know? You guys throw around a lot, but really show little in terms of actual knowledge.
