The Wall Street Journal Doesn't Think Anyone Makes Under $100k a Year

January 17, 2013

I'm just curious where everyone works at in Athens. Because there are some that like to come on the Athens Banner and talk about eating out 4 times a week in Athens, spending no less than $100 each time. So that's $1600 a month.

And then some folks come on here and criticise employers in Athens for paying $28,000-$30,000 a year.

And I know pharmacists and nurses that cannot find work.

And the houses are so expensive in Athens, I see the $500,000 and $600,000 houses, and then think about insurance and property taxes too.

So where does everyone work?

I mean folks in Athens act like the editors of the Wall Street Journal, and think that no one makes under $100,000 I think.

"In America tonight, tens of millions of men and women will struggle to get to sleep because they are stressed out about not making enough money even though they are working as hard as they possibly can. They are called "the working poor", and their numbers are absolutely exploding."--Michael T. Snyder

But, I guess that some folks don't like my posts, somehow they make $300,000 a year, yet they spend all their time posting on the Athens Banner with 10,000 posts, yet they call me names and say I post too much and that they don't like my thoughts on freedom. Oh well...

It's so funny that apparently you Obama supporters make so much money, yet spend all your time on the Athens Banner, and then criticise folks for trying to get a job making $28,000 a year.

It's the haves and have nots. Republican or democrat, y'all are all the same.

"Forget the politicians, they’re irrelevant. Politicians are put there to give you that idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations, and they’ve long since bought and paid
for the Senate, the Congress, the State Houses, and the City Halls.
They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and
information you get to hear."
--George Carlin

I think some of y'all Obama supporters apparently have so much money that y'all want to kill the poor. Is this y'all's song?

"Kill kill kill kill kill the poor. kill kill kill Kill kill the poor
kill kill kill Kill kill the poor"--Dead Kennedys

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
