30. i don't watch videos but yah suze is right

i'm sure you had children but did you have a child in 2010? is your child only 17 months old?

fact is, for people my age and younger, you can educate a child through college OR you can retire, you cannot do both, jobs don't pay that much

yes, almost $6K a month is a HUGE salary but the kicker is...the folks i know who get these huge salaries also get laid off a lot and they don't get re-hired after age 50 so at the end of the day we all earn about $2K a month per family really....and it just doesn't allow for people to have multiple children, having ONE child is a major sacrifice...they are running in the red with ONE child, they will destroy all their hopes and dreams, plus the child who is already here's hopes and dreams, if they don't put a rubber on it

if you don't pay for your child's college, that child will be in debt for decades and will have no choice, not be able to do public service, not being able to do anything except be a wage slave, not be able to start a business or an art or take a risk...why have a child just to be a slave to some boss you don't even know? they are making (barely) enough to educate the one child without having the child start w. a lifetime of debt, they had better stick w. that project instead of "oh first child ain't good enough let's start another"
