I am not talking about the 23 year old grad trying to climb the ladder, living in the metro area with such opportunities, I am talking about the dude who has no skills other than retail, serving, etc, maybe a family, yet will struggle for their entire life living in a high COL area.
Thanks to the liberal elitists..all of America will soon be unaffordable. Liberals are spreading like cancer around America.

I'm sure there are enough dairy farm jobs for us all, what with the agricultural sector in the midst of a major boom. Farmers everywhere!

If cost of living is high, that's an indicator of economic success and resulting high demand for living space. If no one wanted to be in those fancy liberal cities, prices would go down. Economics 101, right? Conversely, East Bumble****, Idaho is cheap because about ten people want to live there.

Id rather live in east bumbles**t Idaho any day over your smug, self centered a**hole liberal elitist cities, Its funny you live in Portland or Seattle for while and trying to make friends is like trying to jump over the moon. Then you move to downhome West Virginia or to Tennessee. Or To Missouri...and you make ten friends in one week. Truth be told. Most liberal smug elitists are money loving, status obsessed. judgmental snobs who will shun you based on what you have and how much you make..and what position you hold. Pure a**holes. Especially liberal women in these liberal cities, You go down to Branson Missouri for instance ..and everyone chats with you,,invites you over...and etc, They don't give a hoot about what you have. Give me downhome country folk any day over an icy cold NYC smug liberal

Dairy farms are in financial trouble. I'm sure they've got lots of jobs for everyone.

I always found the idea of having a roommate to be a strange way to live. I prefer my own space.

Different strokes, I guess.

I see it as dangerous. It's easy for a person to pretend to be all super nice when you're first getting to know the person. I majored in criminal justice. I've been a victim of violent crime and studied about it happening to others. I had my own family stealing from me my whole life. I'd never trust anyone enough to have a roommate.

Stop avoiding the work and lifestyle you need to stay afloat.
Are you living in Long Prarie? nyc, or are you planning to move there soon?

Or are you only telling the other guy what he should do with his life, but never what you would do with yours?
