Some boats have holes and unless they're fixed the rising tide will swamp them instead of lift them.

A sunk boat is underwater even at low tide... it won't matter how much more the tide raises or not

if your boat is sunk, you should have known it was sinking as it was going down and done something about it then, not wait until it is at the bottom before complaining

if someone is poor when they retire, they were poor for the past 65 years as well... they should be used to being poor

Yup. Or anchors so heavy they can't be lifted.

It allows gov't to raise taxes to support the dead-beats you spoke of.

That's if it doesn't motivate them to go out and earn their own way.

It builds light rail transportation to allow low wagers to work in the city and live further out where it's cheaper.

In the 50s boats would float even with holes because of how cheap housing was.

I hope you are changing your underwear more often than periodically.

Probably didn't save like I did. Also I'm a county clerk.

Inflation adjusted houses were 10x+ cheaper so a monkey could have afforded property. It's like me claiming the house I will inherit was earned.
