Good catch Subby.  It looks like the article's author never heard of excessive spending by the upper class.

Sounds like they'll just have to shrink their budgets and stretch their paychecks.

Is the economy still bad? Or are we just not back to the same level we were at on a massive bubble?

Meanwhile, others are choosing to buy freeze dried pizzas and ammo for their bunker. It's like a bunch of what seem to be adults are spending their money like teenagers and children.

Smoking pot to ease your pain is wrong.
But using Botox (a deadly poison) in the name of vanity ( a "deadly sin") is perfectly fine.

On the same note, I've known a lot of folks who complained about how they couldn't pay their bills while showing off a few hundred dollars in new tattoos...

Should I start a list of 'deadly poisons' that are quite useful in non-toxic amounts? We can start with water and then start going into things like soap, aluminum oxide, sodium bicarbonate, etc. before getting into things like nicotine and caffiene.

In 2000, I wanted to work at a startup. No one would hire me. I went out and got botox and collagen injections just before an interview with a company that had rejected me 6 months before. I got hired.

Same resume. Same kind of job.

What was different?
