That house is worth 168,000 now. Investments. In real estate barley keep up with inflation until about 2000 where home prices rose without any justification.

51 years ago and minimum wage is at what like $8? sh*ts wild. Stimulus and multiple financial programs didn’t help with inflation during the pandemic. Just helped realign more pockets. Hell, from 2020-April 2021 I was overseas working for the government. Retrograding (closing) bases. We had “no budget” but we’re destroying hundreds of millions of dollars of equipment, buildings, supplies and so on. Stuff OCNs, ANAs and dhit passed on was destroyed too. n*gga, I saw at least 30 Tahoe’s during a 6 month span out my 9 or so months. Get their tires popped and crushed. Mind you, they were maybe 2016-2017 older models and had been driven by Soldiers, Airman, Marines and contractors. But most of them hoes had under 80k miles on it. All of them got the tires popped, picked up by large forklifts tossed in the “dragon” crusher. America is wild... don’t even get me started on congressman coming to retrograded bases for just like 4 hours for a photo op. But billed like 500k, plus stayed at plush a*s hotels where the hoes be letting you play “nut a butter” in her nabisco for less than 200 riyal, but looks like Kim k... contractors and special operation personnel brethren know... sh*ts crazy

I like it when they call millennials entitled when we have it tougher than any generation since the Great Depression.

Our dollar goes nowhere compared to a dollar in the 80s when you could practically go to any state school for free.

Our productivity currently is through the roof but college is unaffordable and medical bills are bankrupting people everyday. The American dream is now the Chinese Dream or the Canadian dream.

China lets most their kids go to college for free because they believe that educating their future is part of their "infrastructure". Meanwhile in America, college is indentured servitude.


The middle class in this country is fu*ked.

The boomers used all that money they saved from then and drove up the market for everything now. And got the nerve to look at the youngsters and tell them how they paid they way through college with a Grocery store job. Yea ok boomer the price of a bachelor’s degree wasn’t $75,000 in 1967.

you think its much better in canada?
no canadian dream like that...
remember our dollar only 75% of American dollars...
yall still got houses for 100k in some places, but you gotta live
in buttfu*k no where to even get anywhere near those prices..
if you're avg. house cost 400k in america, means it almost cost 1M
here just off exchange rate, taxes and interest here in canada.

i remember when the economy went to sh*t back in 2008/09
yall dealerships was selling brand new cars for 8k, while in canada
there was no change and we were still paying 16-20k for cars here...

ain't no canadian dream playa, we pay high taxes to have decent social services for all, and we are relatively safe because even though u can have guns in canada... but other than that, ain't no canadian dream, maybe a canadian nap.. that might be a thing!
