    In doing so it now resorts to mockery and insults instead of addressing points made by the opposition.

    you're retarded, have a good day champ.

    Hmmmm

    Business motto?

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 1 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    This feels a little projecty aswell.

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 0 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    So sad, you just had to let me know. I'm sure that's not projection or anything.

    Do you think they lived in their car? Do you know what a house is?

    I like how your comment in no way addresses what I said and just explains a really basic concept; A loan. 6/10 for effort.

    Negative equity will not go away even with 20k.

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 3 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    Yes. Do you own a car?

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 5 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    5k car that will run for 250k

    I think you mean a 5k car that has already run for 250k miles. One that you hope will keep going but will likely need costly repairs in the near future.

    50-80k

    50-120k

    I like how you upped the cost between comments. Good try though.

    Oooh. See not reading the article is hampering you here. She clearly points out that having a fully owned and in good condition vehicle is better than buying a second-hand POS and hoping it doesn't require hundreds of dollars in repairs each year.

    Non-partisan analysts say the greatest beneficiaries of the package will be the super-wealthy, multinational corporations and the commercial property industry.

    In the immediate future, the plan will see the vast majority of taxpayers having lower tax bills, but those cuts expire in 2025.

    Paul Ryans' extra $1.50 a week will make such a difference. I can have like 4 more Ramen this week.

    $10 pair will fall apart...

    Well, if I never wear them they won't I guess, but seems to defeat the purpose.

    difference between a car and an article of clothing.

    Do you know what investing is? Can you appreciate how buying quality is better if you can? Can you write your own name?

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 4 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    Thankfully my comment showed otherwise. Yours' not so much.

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 6 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    Your name feels like false advertising. I see you're trying to be sarcastic, but generally speaking cheaper shoes have shorter life spans. You're better off investing say 50-100$ in a decent pair instead of the 10$ pair that will fall to pieces. This is a really common tip that comes up in those "What should you not skimp on?" threads on /r/AskReddit.

    Assuming she did pay full price for the Boots (and didn't get them in a thrift store or as a gift), how much of that 110-250$ do you think she can recoup for selling them? 80%? 50%? How much would you pay for second hand shoes? Then she should get an old pair and hope they will last?

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 9 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    Oh, I see. You took the sign literally. I believe she was being facetious and not genuinely considering cannibalism. I'm guessing she is protesting something like the recent tax cuts to the super-rich. As for the pathway, it was a nice Red herring.

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 12 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    You want me to be mad at someone offering me free food?

    What exactly went wrong in your life to have such a negative outlook?

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 5 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    I guess it was too much to hope that you might read the article. Anyway, if you ever fall into poverty at least you now know to sell your clothes and house and then you'll have escaped poverty for a few weeks. Yaay!

    [–] Eating the rich. SharkGlue 12 points ago in CringeAnarchy

    Oh, how dare she, try and do something good for others! Ugh, I'd much rather no one did anything nice for anyone ever. Don't want to risk being a dreaded Virtue signaller.

    I encourage you to read this article about a middle-class family finding themselves in poverty after the 2008 recession. It's stuck with me as a reminder that you don't know shit about what a persons' life or financial state is.

    That was especially true about my husband’s Mercedes. Over and over again, people asked why we kept that car, offering to sell it in their yards or on the Internet for us.

    “You can’t be that bad off,” a distant relative said, after inviting himself over for lunch. “You still got that baby in all its glory.”

    Sometimes, it was more direct. All from a place of love, of course. “Sell the Mercedes,” a friend said to me. “He doesn’t get to keep his toys now.”

    But it wasn’t a toy — it was paid off. My husband bought that car in full long before we met. Were we supposed to trade it in for a crappier car we’d have to make payments on? Only to have that less reliable car break down on us?

    And even if we had wanted to do that, here’s what people don’t understand: The reality of poverty can spring quickly while the psychological effects take longer to surface. When you lose a job, your first thought isn’t, “Oh my God, I’m poor. I’d better sell all my nice stuff!” It’s “I need another job. Now.” When you’re scrambling, you hang on to the things that work, that bring you some comfort. That Mercedes was the one reliable, trustworthy thing in our lives.

    As for the woman in the pic, the commenter above you already made the point that she is likely not broke. That does not make her point any less worthy, and does not mean she is not allowed to speak on behalf of others.

    Let's not discuss or critique media. Really, we all just want some nice safe explosions.
