Which is it?

I added no more than your silly story did. No one on SSDI is buying a new 70k truck and how that was relevant to the actually topic is beyond me. Then also had to throw leftist in there which is also off base

Guess your mileage will vary as in the majority of my interactions he has been wrong and embarrassingly so

My neighbor "affords" a $70k truck on SSDI. I guess you missed the point of my post because all you are about is dissing other people's posts without adding anything relevant yourself.

Go away, troll.



For the non-troll posters in this thread, the fact that many of these "poor" Americans that supposedly make less than $30k a year actually get sufficient subsidies to be able to buy cr@p that they don't really need. When I stop seeing them running around with expensive cr@p (e.g., $1k cell phones), then maybe, just maybe, I might consider the economy is in trouble. But it sure isn't at this time.

The truth is you donít actually know how he affords it. Thatís the truth. I know SSDI isnít enough to live on and buy a brand new 70k truck every year as itís simply not sustainable. There was no real point to it just like there was no relevance using the term leftist

How do YOU know how he does it? Duh.

I talk to my neighbor. That's how I know.

You contribute very little to discussions, mostly dissing other people's posts. I am sorry you live such a sad life.

The problem with making the judgements you are is that you donít ever know the full truth behind peopleís situation. You are making judgements on peopleís financial situation with limited to no knowledge

I don’t know how he does it and you don’t either but it isn’t on SSDI alone. What do you feel your contribution to the thread was with that story? Nothing other than sensationalism and the fact that you can let answer the question you just asked

My neighbor told me about his situation so I know the facts.

Wow. Awkward. Now don't you feel like an idjit for your post?

You neighbor told you so itís facts? Seems legit. Fact is you donít know how he does it but it certainly doesnít make sense that SSDI is how he does it. So is the truth you exaggerated a bit? Thatís more likely given the details you posted
