Lots of quotes I agree with here, and I love the topic.

Outside of Special Forces, the US military has been turned into a giant welfare scam.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who notices. I have one acquaintance who is pulling down $1800/mo from the military, for life, for vague health complaints like a sore back. He wasn't even in combat, he worked a desk job.

I lived in my Subaru Legacy for almost 2 years.
Awesome! Save 90% for a few years and you're set.

I don't think the American dream is dead, either. You just have to work relatively hard and always look for opportunities to improve your situation. For example, a lot of people pay $100/mo for cell service. A tiny bit of shopping will get that down to $50/mo.
