It’s easy to say that everyone in every generation will at some point own a home and two cars, but you don’t really have to go too many generations back to see that these things were not the norm not that long ago.
Walker, what is this Utopia you speak of where everyone will own a home and 2 cars?August 1, 2013 2:19 am at 2:19 am in reply to: Ohio State's Mormon President Really Doesn't Like Catholics #543753
Whatttttttt? He’s Mormon???
I found my favorite editorial cartoon depicting the struggle.
I recently read this article.
It says, “Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.”
At the age of 28, I work full time, I have a degree, and yet nearly EVERY day I struggle to simply eat and have enough gas to get back to work. I would LOVE to spend money, but with staggering student loan debt, (private loans – my parents were middle class school teachers in 2003 when I came to OSU – so I did not qaulify for federal loans and grants, despite the fact that with four kids my parents could not afford to save for my college education) zero savings, and Obama’s first term tax cut ending in January – I find myself more poor than ever.
Not only that – but I am bringing my parents down with me. They cosigned my loans – and now no one will consolidate them, and I can’t claim bankruptcy for them (+$100,000) because halfway through my college experience – 2007 I believe – Bush made it officially NOT allowed. Heck – I can’t even negotiate a payment lower than $1K a month. My father tries to help make these payments, because if he doesn’t – they will take his house. That monthly payment is literally half of my income!
Sorry for the rant. But I would love to buy some shoes (I have one functional pair). I would love to afford the finer (healthier) groceries like olive oil, fish, and organic vegetables. Going to concerts, buying clothes, taking a vacation!? Oh it would be so sweet…July 30, 2013 12:47 am at 12:47 am in reply to: Print Syndicate Expanding Downtown Workforce by 150 #541564
Too bad they ditched Skreened and took Skreened employees behind everyone’s back. Cool move.
Just waiting for the minority to become the majority.
I used to live in the SN and near campus. Now that I moved to the “hood,” (Morse & Cleveland) my neighbors are far more tolerable. I wake up to the sounds of kids playing instead of grown ass adults acting like douchebags.
Thanks for the heads up, Kitty. It’s important to remember that even if you blow under 0.08 BAC you can still be arrested and charged with an OVI. If you drink ANYTHING – be smart and don’t drive.July 5, 2013 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm in reply to: How big a deal IS the train noise if you live close to tracks in Clintonville? #545983
I work in a warehouse/production space directly next to the tracks at the Weber crossing. They use the horn everytime. If we are outside – you can’t hear conversation with people right next to you – inside it’s not so bad, but like billbix said, you ALWAYS hear it.
ehhhh…. I heard LOTS of duds. But that’s just one man’s (highbrow) opinion…
I thoroughly enjoyed the new speed limit as I drove back to Columbus from northeast Ohio last night. Everyone is trippin’ over 5 mph. Like people don’t already go 80 mph on the regular. I just got my first V6 and I am LOVING this change.
