...i thought giraffes ate leaves and twigs?

Either way, I might be inclined to cc the letter to Sallie Mae if the attorneys representing said Giraffes don't sue you for defamation first. Biotches over at Sallie Mae can shove it.

Something Corporate is self proclaimed "piano rock".

They are also filed as "emo" in my itunes.

I don't know if that helps you at all  :-[

I *love* Seattle.

pros: the weather (seriously) - it doesn't rain *that* much and between april-sep/october it is warmish (65-80) and usually sunny (and if it rains, it is probably sunny at some point during the day). it's...temperate. also, there aren't that many stupid people (i think it was named the most educated city last year). lots of job and educational opportunities. lots of things to do - outdoors (mountains to the east and west, lots of lakes, the ocean isn't too far away) and indoors(several sport venues and good music/arts). it's also really pretty, especially on a clear day (mountains and trees and water all around. people are generally nice.

cons: people can be snobby. public transportation is to be desired. traffic can be terrible (but I've seen worse in SoCal and D.C....way worse.) If it snows, the city is screwed (lack of equipment since it rarely happens, and many hills making it difficult for even capable vehicles). it does rain sometimes, and it can get somewhat cold in the winter. but, again, nothing compared to the midwest.

Ah what kind of wealth distribution is the free market supposed to result in if not the 80-20 split that we almost have?

Our split is between the 20 percent who are wealthy and the 80 who are merely well off.

either you are naive or ignorant, and i hope its the first, because that is the stupidest thing i've read on this board in a long time.

How much tax (approx) would you pay on a $30k salary?


About 9% in Washington State. PM me if you want an exact number.

Exact numbers not needed, just wondering about the ballpark.. but.. uhm. Is that 9% in total, or 9% state tax? If it's 9% total of your income, I can understand why lower salaries like this is manageable.

I've missed out on the tax bracket discussion, but as for why I responded: I'm not happy with 30k. I'm not as comfortable as I want to be. Even if (to follow up on the recent discussion) I got taxed at, say, 30%, I'd still walk away with more than I do now. I could afford more. I could choose both gas AND a restaurant dinner! Cost of living is ridiculous in some areas, and I know that I'm fairly lucky in Seattle.

If I were in San Diego, there's no way I could afford the "lifestyle" I have now. But then, if I were in the Midwest (genralizing here)...I'd probably not even be considering law school again.

And its true...my "30k" job is great for paying the bills, living in a nice place, driving a nice car and eating at nice places. However - it's far from luxurious. If I could even make *twice* what I make now, I'd be thrilled. I *could* move up in the position I'm in...but it's the position I'm in that drives me crazy and has made me realize I need to be the lawyer, not their paralegal/assistant.
