Poor people tend to live in trailers???? Mind. Blown.
Poor. Trailers. Gunloon states. About sums it up...
Interesting jade that you refer to people as Gunloons yet on your blog you become agitated anytime you even remotely think someone has come close to insulting you....Hypocrisy at its finest
Well there's no denying the connection between low education, gun ownership and poverty.
If you did a survey in the states with high gun ownership you'd find similarly high levels of ownership among the highly educated and the wealthy--quite possibly more ownership since they have more disposable income. It's a part of the culture in these states that cuts across all levels, but go ahead, keep trying to draw these silly connections that pat your ego you elitist, classist racists.
I think we've demonstrated the connections quite well. "Elitist, classist racists" doesn't even make sense.
What this article shows is that the Brits have no clue about America or its trends. One trend is for older retired people to sell their property and get themselves a trailer to travel the country or head south in the winter. No property taxes, no shoveling snow or landscape work. They can head on down to Alabama and get one of these:http://tiffinmotorhomes.com/allegro-busThen there is the trend towards minimalism. Not everyone thinks dying with the most toys is the way to go. So they opt for these:http://www.designboom.com/contemporary/tiny_houses2.htmlShowing a picture of an old, rusted and beat up 'pull behind' with a FOR RENT simply shows their ignorance. Sure a tweeker might rent something like that, but it is more likely to be found in a colonia.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonia_%28United_States%29orlin sellers
Keep spinnin' it, Orlin.
And I would have a reason to spin anything because...?orlin sellers
I don't know, maybe it's your generally contentious nature. I wasn't trying to say most of the trailer people live in ones like that picture. But you sure were trying to say that most are either snowbirds with plenty of cash or "minimalists" with plenty of cash.
Don't call a Winter Texan a 'snowbird' or they'll kick your ass. ;-)Yer gawddamne right I get contentious when jadegold posts something as stupid is this"Poor. Trailers. Gunloon states.About sums it up..."Even the article from the Brits was uninformed, but it wasn't as stupid as JG.Btw, if you sold your house, eliminated property taxes, got rid of toys and other crap you don't need, do you think you 'd have more cash in your pocket?orlin sellers
There is a similar phenomenon in Minnesota, people escape the cold by running off to Arizona for example. They claim the state with lower taxes as their legal residence, (not Minnesota) causing much consternation among the DFL regarding the loss of tax revenue. In fact at one point, our Governor tried to float the idea of somehow taxing these people, commonly known up here as "snowbirds".
This is the economy Bush left us. We have to live in trailer homes. Republicans idea of the American dream.
"This is the economy Bush left us. We have to live in trailer homes. Republicans idea of the American dream." That W was quite the planner then since it appears that they've been around since before he was born. "In the Great Depression in the 1930s, people started living in trailers which were designed for travelling and vacationing but out of necessity, people started to make these tiny mobile units their homes," says Andrew Hurley, author of Diners, Bowling Alleys and Trailer Parks." They even seem to have them in the UK,http://www.assuredcaravansales.co.uk/preowned/buy10.html
In 20 years yall will still be yelling "Boosh! Boosh!" pitiful
What a stupid reply by the master liar. Homes have been around for thousands of years, so what. Make a point instead of making yourself look stupid.
ANON "We have to live in trailer homes" ..if you do indeed live in a trailer you do it by choice. Or where you attempting to show solidarity with those who choose to live in trailer by using the word "We" and do not actually live in a trailer.MBIAC......
Trailer living is usually the cheapest in most areas and it's not a choice for most. You have no clue where I live, but thanks for clueless (wrong) guessing.
Anon if living in a trailer is not a choice people make then what is it?...I myself chose to live in a trailer for 5 years many years ago simply because of the reason you stated "Trailer living is usually the cheapest in most areas" and it was in that time and place and likely still is however it was a choiceMBIAC..........
Where's the choice if you have no other option? Your fantasy that they could choose to live in a mansion only shows the delusional world you think in.
"Where's the choice if you have no other option?" there is always an alternative option...you may not like it but it is still an option..many people choose to be homeless by choice, those who are homeless not by choice have many charitable options to choose from yet many in that group are too proud to ask for help but the help is still there they have chosen not to take it.MBIAC.......
It's not a choice, so your statement is false. Like most of what you print.
Thats it Anon stick with Leftist mentality of blaming others for the choices you or another have made..dont like your options blame someone else dont have enough money blame someone else .Good LuckMBIAC.....
My Bias Is Always Criminal, your claim that they have a choice is bullshit just like most of what you say. Your delusion is complete.
Wonder why the Brits never even mentioned double wides? My guess is that they are similar to the East and West coast elites that haven't a clue about 'fly over' country.orlin sellers
