Sounds like something you made up to make yourself feel better lmao. Anyways my $100k Silicon Valley stock option/signing bonus can buy a lot of trailers. You do realize college educated millennials have a higher average household income then any generation before right? You sound jealous that college educated millennials have made more than you did when you were young lol.

Maybe you can read numbers if you’re brain hasn’t turned to mush:

$100K Silicon Valley stock signing bonus? You are clearly not an executive or a mission critical employee. That's on the very low side of the curve. Regardless, you are certainly not a wise man/woman...

I'm kinda bothered that Bernie's latest ad begins with President Kennedy's speech.



You are no JFK (although you might be the same age.)

Kind of ironic when you think about it given that JFK would be considered a republican by todays standards given his political views.

The party has drifted so far left. An in the meantime, the Tea Party ruined what was left of the GOP.

I know, how dare the tea party support smaller government, lower taxes, reducing the deficit and cutting spending.

The CORE principles of what the GOP used to be, RUINED by the "tea party"

I don't get the whole measuring ones value based on income. It isn't a measure of ones intrinsic value as a human. And $100K stock bonus in Silicon Valley? Pshaw. I worked with many people there that ended up obscenely wealthy. My first boss ended up being the founder of Juniper Networks. He could light cigars with $100K stock bonuses. . I knew many others ended up net work north of $100m.

Me, I wasn't in that stratosphere of management. I did manage to retire at 42 and travel the world the last 20 years but I can't afford a private jet or a yacht. Happy enough with what I got.

He/she doesn't even know how to read. Or sucks at math and doesn't know that $20,700 is more than $12,500. From the article at that link:

Quote:
While young adults in general do not have much accumulated wealth, Millennials have slightly less wealth than Boomers did at the same age. The median net worth of households headed by Millennials (ages 20 to 35 in 2016) was about $12,500 in 2016, compared with $20,700 for households headed by Boomers the same age in 1983. Median net worth of Gen X households at the same age was about $15,100.

Thought this was worth a chuckle. He got called out on his lies previously and ran away.

Too funny.

He went off his meds and came back, apparently. What a gaping asshole.

Probably realized that he is not that important to his company and crying about the value of his $100k options right now.

If they gave him $100K, it was to go away.

Makes you wonder if the time is right for a truly moderate 3rd party. There's a crap-ton of voters who are being left behind by the rush to the left by the dems and the rush to the right by the republicans.

Unless you're 75 and retired, dont worry about it. What you had last week and (hopefully) still have this week is stock in companies that lost value on paper. You "had" money last week only if you liquidated everything last week. Otherwise, this week you still have the same number of shares you had last week and those shares will bounce back. Nows the time to ADD to your stockpile of shares while they are cheaper to buy. I just stuffed another $5k into the market this last Friday.

Many years ago the company that I was working for, was acquired another company.... looking at payroll data coming from the other company I noticed they had paid someone 6.3 million dollars in the first week of January.

When I asked if that was an error and should it be reported in the year prior, they said nope, that was correct. Basically, with us acquiring the company he was an issue and he was paid to go away.

Having hi-res photos of the CEO in a hot tub with a bunch of Cub Scouts is the best income strategy I've come up with so far. You can't push it too far, though, or instead of sending over Chuck with the check they send Guido with a gun.
