    Try to find a room to rent, adding in utilities, cable/internet for $15/day ($450/month). Obviously you count only what you "feel" that you add to the living expenses of others (that actually pay the bills). Rest assured that living "on your own" would cost about $50/day but that two people can live nearly as cheaply as one with only a slight increase in utilities, clothing and food. Of course, if you have a major expense such as needing to replace the car or paying a huge medical bill that will likely take years to pay off - thus the need for savings.

    Well. Maybe I was wrong. Perhaps it doesn't.

    My property taxes last year were are $466.83 per year. My income was $15,832.92. My wife's income was $13,504.81. My real estate taxes were 2.9484% of my income. My real estate taxes were 1.5912% of my household income.

    Are you suggesting that threegoofs income is $365,000 per year? I'm not sure what you are getting at.

    In some parts of the country $10k in property taxes even on a rather modest home is normal.

    LOL, you actually took that as a serious comment?

    Sure, I'll hire him, just tell me where I'm supposed to get the $100,000 per year with an annual taxable income of around $26,000 per year.

    The world is pretty much like it was when I was 15. The economy on the edge, doing poorly with a worthless piece-of-**** in the white house. Ok, so today, it's a bit better, the Reps control the house unlike the congress we had under Carter.

    But do those same millions of people live without paying taxes of any kind? As for what you think is perverted, I really don't care.

    House is paid for
    Expenses on most expensive first order:

    Gasoline
    School Loan payment
    Credit card payments
    Property taxes
    Natural Gas bills
    Auto insurances
    Food costs
    Telephone bill
    Electric bill
    Vehicle maintenance
    Internet bill

    I do race a dirt track car in the summers, but it is covered by sponsorship.
    I buy/sell antiques/coins but it is a break even deal with equity in the future.

    You are free to move from the USA.
    In your comparison of some living on $2/day, what does a dollar buy in those countries?

    What is your point of your post?

    My point was more along the lines of what someone (by percentage of income) is willing to spend to live in a certain area. The cost of 'living' in a certain area can eat up your income rather quickly if you don't look at it realistically based on percentages.

    I wasn't so much debating with you, as suggesting an alternate method of considering what one's 'cost of living' really is.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
