“This chart jives with what I was taught in economics when I was in high school,
you should be able to see that was in the 1960 for me because as the chart shows housing was about 25%..
Dr. Hubbard taught us by using a pie chart and showed housing at no more than 25% of your monthly income, no more than 25% for food a month, I think that a automobile loan no more than 12% of you monthly income..
At that time he reccommended savings for retirement at 10% and I doubt that very many of the middle class in america today can afford to save that much for retirement every month because of the wage disparity today.
Also back then we were not born with a feeling of an inherent right to a cell phone in one hand a Lap top under ones arm and a note book in the other hand with a play station always near by.. OH wait we did have a note book but it was made of paper by Standard paper company and they cost us about 29 cents each and of course a #2 pencil...”

“FYI: I have a cell phone, I do not have a land line. Additionally, those without a computer (laptop or notebook) are increasingly marginalized. How many jobs are now listed in a "newspaper?"”

indravayu on Dec 9, 2013 at 11:55:14

“It's not as if cell phones are expensive - most young people today have them in lieu of land lines (as do I, and I am in my 40's). Laptops can be as cheap as a couple hundred dollars (just bought one for my elderly father for $250 and that wasn't even the cheapest at the store). I don't know what gaming consoles cost now, but they are not some massively expensive luxury item either.”

“"Also back then we were not born with a feeling of an inherent right to a cell phone in one hand a Lap top under ones arm and a note book in the other hand with a play station always near by"

This is my biggest problem with baby boomers and other older people. Always making asinine assumptions about today's generation and their "entitlement". Baby boomers are the original entitlement generation (aka the ME generation).”

“I agree with you on the ticket prices and yes it would wake up the teams IF nobody bought tickets to the games BUT you know as well as I do that will never happen Dodger fans will go see a Dodger game, same with NasCar Fans, Dallas Cowboy fans, golf fans etc. ..The most effective way and nobody will miss their sporting events if for people to boycot the sponsors of the games ie if General Mills cereal pays advertising for a game, Budwiser, Coors, Chevrolet, Ford etc. then everyone call those companies and tell them if they sponsor  an event that you will not buy their product untill the price of tickets comes down and the payroll for players & coaches comes down, that will do the trick.Remember if you don't watch football or baseball etc. and General Mills ceral advertises that event and you buy General Mills cereal you are paying for the event wheather you like it or not so you choice is to say buy Post cereal instead..”

“For the very first time I have to say thanks
to the Tea Party people, this has been a
very hot subject for me, with all of the
money that sports drags in tax payers
should NEVER EVER be out any mony..

While we are at it I have always thought
that the ammount of money that ALL of
the sports teams write pay contracts with
athletes is sinfull.
No body is worth 140 million dollars a year
I don't care what they do or how good they
are at it, with the one exception being in a
case like Bill Gates with Microsoft, he built
the company and so deserves any & all
monitary gains or losses...
The same with Google, Face Book etc.
This is what started our wage disparity
in America, it then went to CEO's etc..”

4504Dowden on Dec 9, 2013 at 10:20:51

“Want to lower the cost for a ticket? This will happen if the people stop buying them! In turn, this will lower the amount paid to over rated athletes. How about golf, or tennis? Sports is big bucks. Capitalism and profits are based on what the people are willing to pay for a particular product and service. Our system and our must have at any cost, fuels big payouts. I haven't been to a big time pro-game in decades. But I have attended many, many, semi-pro and minor league games. All were a lot of fun and easy on the pocket book.”

“Yes Mr. Intellect, "set Back" Set To put someone or something in a particular place.
ie. to set a baby on his feet.
In my use of "set" is to set yourself back in the chair and get ready for the big laughs, I assume that people are already "sitting" in their chair.”

wakeup456 on Dec 3, 2013 at 08:27:18

“Inanimate objects are "set down" or "set back" in place. Animate objects "are sitting", "will sit" or "have sat" as in down or back in a chair. BTW: if they ARE already "sitting" it would STILL be needed to SIT BACK. After they stand up their past action would have been they SAT BACK in the chair before standing up. Rather sad that in your "example" the baby is used as an object to cover your inability to admit you used the wrong term.... but not surprising considering the insecurity of most liberals.”
