    I bought a house at age 25 and was single and didn't have a six figure income. Two of my neighbors were about the same age too when they bought their houses.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    You're such an overachiever.

    That's how things work in a fair society. It you want more stuff, you work more and earn it. If you have better things to do than work, you do without some stuff. Just like wrestling - nothing is handed to you, you get out what you put in.

    I think I understand where BIG is comming from.

    We here work our butts off to have more things (toys), however we don't enjoy the simple things in life that God has given us. Personaly I rather enjoy my Boy's, family and friends and do with a little less toys, than have all of them, work my tall off, have a ton of stress and no time to enjoy the toys.

    Oh, I see. If he/you are saying that the demands of life don't leave enough time to smell the roses, maybe that's true. If he's criticizing materialism, everyone has a choice of how he wants to spend his discretionary funds and free time.

    Spider,

    I never realized a place to live and medical coverage are what makes up materialism. What I am saying is that in America these things are tied to a full time job. You can't get medical without a full time job and rents are sky high.

    So you object to the need to work more than three days a week in order to provide yourself with life's necessities?

    Can you get a house and medical care in Russia if you're only willing to work 3 days/week?
