I have a friend who lived in a small town like that. I'd drive around it to avoid the cops. They mostly had nothing to do, so they'd look for any stupid thing to stop you and just hassle you. Fortunately, the cops were pretty incompetent also. The town finally did away with their own police force due to the cost and I'd say things actually improved.

I took one of those career-placement-based-on-your-interests or personality tests when I was on unemployment. I seem to have been most-qualified as a revolutionary. Maybe try and do something on your own, like self-employment?

I posted this in anarcho-capitalism also yesterday. I was seriously considering cross-posting it here, but did`t. So, thanks.

The country club fees, the summer home and winter “cabin”, the lawns, the pools, the list is quite extensive-the sports car you only pull out on a really nice day-lol. It’s quite difficult to make ends meet. No matter how much money you have, it never seems to be enough…poor upper middle class… only $250,000? You can’t even be a social climber on that pittance?

The U.S. supreme court decisions of the last couple days on gun control and abortion are ominous indeed. It just reminds me how reactionary the U.S is. Stay tuned for more disgusting decisions from the Republican majority supreme court. What 's next? Lesser-evilism is greater-evilism.
