Hi guys, Just to say hi from a new arrival. Some may know me from elsewhere "unspeakable".

I'll browse around for a while to get a feel for the place.

It's not really "unspeakable", it's just that a lot of folks here had never heard of the place until I mentioned it one day.
I don't remember who suggested it but someone said, "Hey, go see if a few good ones might want to check us out here at the Rant" and I ran with it.

Welcome to the madness.
Like I said, it moves a little slower here but we're glad you're here.
Maybe as we manage to lure more new folks, the pace might pick up a little.

44% make $18,000 a Year or less

I knew it was bad. I didn't know it was that bad. We think a $12 an hour McJerb should pay about $24,000 per year but I guess that contains some assumptions that are just not true.

Rents are insane. I just used Zillow to look up a random 3 bedroom house in Baton Rouge. Looked pretty nice. Going for $135,000 and renting for $1200 a month. That's 9.6% income after subtracting out property tax and insurance. Not to mention it's an appreciating asset that you can depreciate.

Taibbi certainly is making Trump lovers very happy, or at least some of them anyway.

I am absolutely certain that is not his intention.

But that IS why we have the words "unintended consequences" in our lexicon.

What was it I said about Glen Greenwald a few months back? LOL
