    You've got this incredibly stupid, completely false notion of the people who are struggling right now.

    My notion is a responsible adult should be able to absord a month with no salary and not be in need of a handout.
    You do this by living within your means, working and saving and sacraficing when needed.
    How does an adult man not even have a 40k they could access in a dire energency.
    Please enlighten me as to what I'm wrong about

    And why would any business be that stupid to sell that many of one product to someone during a pandemic. Like WTF?

    Not everyone can afford to save money. Most Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck. Not everyone knows what a 401K is, let alone how to set one up, and these aren't the people working at a job that provides one. People who have high medical expenses, or who fell victim to predatory financial agencies like credit card companies, or who are tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars is in student loans, are ****ing buried in debt and can't afford to save in the way you're demanding (and probably don't do yourself, because it's always the ones first in line for the "hand outs" who are decrying them and ****-talking the others who need them).

    Like always, like with literally everything else, you're embarrassingly wrong.

    I don't seem to be alone in my thinking, and you seem like another person nowadays playing the victim card.
    First off I practice what I preach and my financial situation is perfectly fine, not by some miracle but by living within my means, and if need be tightening the belt in tough times.
    Student loans and running up credit cards are choices, if you need credit cards for monthly expenses you are living wrong.
    Medical expenses like I've said previously are noones fault and those I feel bad for.
    I retired from my first career at 38, live now in Scottsdale,I'm fine.
    You know why, I always live within a budget

    Of course you're not alone: idiots are everywhere.

    What we've established here is that you've been lucky, and probably had a lot of help along the way. Good for you. Not everyone has that kind of luck. I take from the vague comment about retiring from your first career young that you probably made quite a bit of money at it, and as a result haven't had to worry about money at all, and "living within your means" and "tightening your belt" probably means something much different to you than it does to, say, someone living in inner-city Detroit. So you "sacrifice" taking that vacation, whereas someone else may have to not buy their medicine, or skip a doctor's appointment even though they should go.

    The guy who stumbled into financial security and retired to Arizona before forty has zero business telling other people how to live. You don't know what it's like, and not because you're better or more driven, certainly not because you're smarter, than anyone else. You're just more fortunate. You got lucky, so appreciate it and stop looking to blame everyone else for not having your dumb, blind luck.

    You know nothing about what I did to make money, no luck involved( again the woo is me mentality).
    I'll give you some backround, I lost my dad at an early age and paid for my own College. Woth loans I paid back.
    I saved money for 3 years before I became a trader, nothing goven to me.
    I worked 14 hour days and never called in sick, onstead of wasting money on a wedding, we used money to buy a house and accrue equity

    I didn't irresponsibley have more kids then I could handle, I built up a 401k from my first real job.
    These are not luck this is called hard work and starting from the bottom and moving up.
    You keep attacking me personally (which is fine but dont run to the mods when I come back at you).
    Larry feels the same don't see you going after him.
    I don't hate on poor people I hate the victim mentallity that is prevalent today.
    People make their own choices, having too many kids. Running up debt on credit cards, taking out ridiulous school loans all choices, the government isnt your daddy, take care of yourself and family, stop looking for handouts.
    Lets say they send out these checks for 1200 to each person, how many are blowing it on crap and next month looking for more.
