Show me a person who can't do a hard days work and I'll show you 10 who won't.

Ok so at least 1 out of 11 can't by your own admission. That's tens of millions.

Again. Bullshit.

Show me the tens of millions of people in this country who you are apparently claiming can't afford the basic necessities to survive.

HINT: Those who claim they can't afford food yet somehow manage to have unlimited data plans on their new cell phones and nice big TVs with the sports package don't count.

So get a roommate, or two, no country in the world, even the socialist shitholes, guarantee every person will have their own housing, are you unaware of this??
Most people out of college with their first job cannot afford a $1,500/month apartment cost.
Life is not cheap, get an education and work a p-t time, do not be extravagant, save for a rainy day, buy used when possible, etc... the U.S. of A. does not guarantee luxury, but it does provide the greatest opportunity for the hard workers to enjoy amenties, and then some.
BTW, all can afford cell phones, internet, premium channels, new music weekly, a new ride and 10 meals out every week, and probably some booze and weed.
