    Lol I'm glad you think good of us (!)

    But you are right, we live in a massive government nanny state, you would probably get a culture shock if you lived here for a few months.

    Hilarious!

    Really, 9-5? Oh the horror! Not every family could afford college back in the 60s either. A great many of us worked all through our college days. Sometimes I had two jobs while attending college. Lived on apples and peanut butter until the folks stopped by to visit. That's the real world, and for those who still know how to work toward a goal, it's still like that.

    You conflating two different eras that are worlds apart. College was way cheaper during the 60's than it is now. If it was hard for some then it's damn near impossible for some now.

    Thanks, but actually I do see the beauty of your country (amazing history and landscape) and think it's a wonderful place for those who don't mind being subjects. No objection whatsoever, as long as it stays on that side of the pond.

    Firstly, that really looks a little sadistic, laughing while you're discussing a poor family. lol

    Secondly, real wages have not been increasing with productivity in America from 1978 onwards:

    It was YOU who brought up the supposed difference in eras, and you are wrong. I can get a degree online now for far less than the average cost of college in the 1960s (in 1960 dollars). Community colleges still exist in every state and most localities. You're full of excuses.

    Maybe when high school is over they can continue their education and then get a real job.

    No I'm not you just don't know what you are talking about. Please show me a online college, an accredited one, that offers degrees that cheap.

    We're not discussing one particular family, but all of them. I was born poor in a poor community, I know whereof I speak.
