    Didn't watch the debate so I almost thought this was Donald Trump, except he isn't married to a teacher nor does he have a deceased wife. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to tell.

    Generational poverty is a complex topic, and a politician has to dance very carefully around it to avoid putting blame on people he wants to vote for him.

    Hence word salad like this, where he advocates "putting the record player on at night" instad of pointing out that absentee parenthood is a problem of personal responsibility as well as wealth and income inequality.

    Socioeconomic factors make it pretty difficult to pay rent and look after your kids for those living in poverty.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Yes but haven’t you heard, someone making $350k is barely middle class.

    I want to know where $1.6 million is the median home price.

    Also, 3 weeks vacation/year and $500/month on entertainment, lol.

    The median in San Jose is 1.1 million now.

    1.6 would be certain smaller cities near here though, quite easily. Those aren't middle class areas by any stretch of the imagination, though.

    It’s 1.3 mil in SF, 800k in NYC, 600k in Seattle.

    In my neck of the woods 1.6 mil gets you something like this: https://www.trulia.com/p/wa/bainbrid...6#lil-mediaTab

    Clearly this is a barely-middle-class property; anything less than a waterfront four bedroom with a city view is the slums.

    Median.

    The median price in SF isn't 1.3, it's 800k. SJ is more expensive than SF now. The brogrammers ruined that city and all the cool people moved south or east.

    I'd prolly look on the Queen Anne if I was going to move to your town. It's one of the few other places I'd want to live in the US, tbh.

    Is it?

    I grabbed the 1.3 figure from a Business Insider article; this says the median is 1.7.

    Queens Anne is nice. Pretty happy living on my island though.

    Yeah, those are single family home prices, and it looks like mine were through the whole market down to studio. You can squeeze those 2 kids into the studio, right? Bunk beds R fun!

    Also: zefgrammer

    No it's not. Give them a raise if they work, and straight cash if they don't.

    I'd have more patience with the idea of "oh its a complex topic" and "personal responsibility" if this wasn't something we hear at every debate for the past 30 years to justify not spending money
