    Moneys not everything

    A low rank government job where Sam lives would indeed be a dumb idea. What they do is give you a housing allowance with your salary. It's never enough, but better than nothing.

    But if your home is a small town in a none too prosperous region you can make it work. You can get a much nicer home for less money and your commute will be minutes instead of hours. You'll be close to what you like and there won't be a bunch a people in the way.

    It's not for everybody. Small towns are well, small towns. There's not much there, and you may or may not fit in. The local merchants will do you, and anything cheaper is an hour or two away. A lot a people shop on the net, my neighbor never goes to a store.

    I'm not saying you should sign up. I am saying it worked for me and many other people. It has many advantages besides money, which is good. Like Sam says, you won't make much.

    My best friend loves the forest, he's always hunting, fishing, or cutting wood. But come Monday he was an hour away working at a veneer mill. Work for me was driving a government truck, with a government credit card, down a government road, in a government forest. Winter, spring, summer and fall. For 33 years, Smokey Bear paid me to watch the changing of the seasons in the forest that I was born and grew up in. No money in that, but it's nice just the same.


    You know what they say, "life is like a shit sandwich, the more bread you have, the less shit you have to eat". So money is important, but it's not everything.

    Re: Moneys not everything

    I have lived in small towns on occasions, and I enjoyed the solitude, and peace of mind that came with it. I was earning minimum wage, but it was a lot of fun.

    Many city dwellers ''sacrifice'' their health, well-being and sanity for the rat race. And yes, I am one of them. I think it may pay off, but I'm probably fooling myself.

    If you are care about yourself, you wouldn't spend money frivolously. Financial stability is caring about one's self, loving one's self.

    But of course, if male disposability is an accepted narrative, then why wouldn't a man pay $100 for a dinner with some women who hates his guts? that is what he has been trained to do, from birth.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself.

    I've always preferred the country to the city. The traffic alone is reason enough.

    To be fair, much a the town does have to drive an hour to work. But it really is a rush hour, there's no gridlock. That's the reason small towns are small, living wage jobs are scarce.

    I did ok, but it things were different after the crash of the timber empire. Way back when mill jobs were a dime a dozen. I quit twice to go riding, something nobody with a steady job would ever do today. Making a livings not easy, you really need a trade of some sort.

    The place does have some things going for it though. While the real estate market has been hot, it's still far cheaper than most places. My place is old, and could be called a dump. I paid 15K long ago, it's now worth maybe 80-100. It repels women almost as good as my old school bus did, which is nice. Even better, my annual tax last year was six hundred bucks. Some is the house, some is being outside the city limits. Tax's for a equal house in town are twice as much. Downside is, you best not need the cops. Outside the city, they aren't coming unless somebody's bleeding. Most of the time I come out ahead. You pay your money and take your choice. Northwest hydro power is cheaper than most places, if I don't use electric heat, the monthly bill is seventy five bucks. So there's some saving to be had, even if jobs are tough.
