    I ignored your latter example and you are ignoring your former example.

    OK, add in the cost of trespassing fines for your van by the river.

    Re: What does it cost you to live per day?

    All told my daily average is somewhat north of $600 just to not be going backwards.

    what I am finding interesting here is that very few people understand what their expenses actually are. I'm coming up on 7 years in business. Until just over a year ago I didn't really know either. It took a couple of hours sitting in my accountant's office to learn what all the lines in my P&Ls meant. But it really is astounding once you figure it out. On the up side once you do really know it allows you to take control of your life.

    This year we are pushing expansion. The first step there is to understand what your expenses are and where your money is going. Only then can you get an accurate picture of what you need to do to grow and what that will entail.

    Hmmmm. I calculated I spend $30 per day in property taxes alone.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    You don't need $10,950 in property taxes to live. A lot of people don't even make $10,950 per year and they don't die.

    Millions of people live without paying rent. 3.5 billion people on this planet live on less than $2 per day. Americans have a perverted view of what living means. Even America's poor lives like royalty.

    This poll brings to light the truth. The truth makes many people uncomfortable. Telling the truth is fun because it pisses people off.

    Hire him for $100,000 per year then see how lazy he is. Old people these days are so selfish and greedy. They don't want to hire anybody to work for them. They just want to keep all of their money instead of creating a better world. What kind of scum were they raising back in the day? Geez!

    Don't listen to DVSentinel. He thinks the world works the same as it did when he was 15. He will never listen to anything you say. Ignore him.

    The only thing that stays the same is that everything changes.
