    Put another way, is it rational or irrational to reside in housing that costs more than the amount of money you make?

    Where you live geographically, what housing you purchase, what job you will perform, at what rate of pay... these are all choices individuals are free to make. People are even free to make irrational choices, for the most part.
    The couple in the article like they said was fine and they quite a bit of extra income until the mother's maternity leave ended and they had to send their kid to daycare.

    No, we've just discovered that he's taking the most extreme example he can find and pretending it applies everywhere. It just demonstrates the extreme disconnect between liberalism and honesty.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Did you reply to the wrong post? This has nothing to do with what I asked and said in the post you quoted.

    I'm not complaining about it and not too many people here are complaining about it. We have, here in Ontario, started to connect daycare to elementary schools and moved to have full day kindergarten starting for 4 yr olds so, in effect, in many schools you can start sending your kid at about 1, pay for daycare until 4 and then it's school with before and after school care for the kids when you drop them off and pick them up. It's one of the main reasons why our province's collective debt has more than doubled in the past 10 years of liberal government rule.

    So you're telling us that nobody outside of Toronto has a job? Seriously? Now you're not only shoving both feet in your mouth, you're working your way up to your knees.

    Well with each generation the number of those who want to secede gets fewer and fewer. Even in the last election the ridings that voted for the Liberals were ridings with a lot of younger people in them even the ones with universities. It was the ridings with a older population expect Sherbrokke (Jean Charest's) that voted PQ.

    So, in America, if you don't live in New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago you're just an unemployed piece of crap that lives there because you have kids and can't afford a "big city".

    Damn, I'm learning so many things on this thread.

    Sounds like you live in an entirely screwed up country. Maybe you should get the liberals out of power, it can only help.

    It's not an unreasonable amount. My twin nephews are 33 now, and when they were 1 to 5 years old, 30 yrs ago, my brother and sister-in-law sent them to "play school" every day so my sister-in-law could go back to teaching. It cost them $1,000 each, per month, for them to attend the program which was a combination of "baby sitting" and education, prepping them for school. This cost them almost as much as my sister-in-law was netting from teaching, but she wanted to teach and the program was good for the kids. It's called sacrificing for your offspring and that's what responsible parents do.
