LOL! Are they fucking serious?!? In D.C.?!? Who do they think's taking that job? Johnny Tremain's not walking through that door... Do you seriously think the right-wing rags pay that shittily? I'm speechless. No wonder the Left gets its ass kicked.

That's ridiculous. $30k for a professional job should be intern money. I can get a job right now answering phones making more than that.

Just out of curiosity, I wonder what a small apartment (kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom) in a halfway decent neighborhood in or very near D.C. costs these days.

When I was in the service, many enlisted people dreaded being stationed there. That was because even with a differential COLA, the cost of living was considered brutal, especially rent.

That's the problem with you libruls. Always thinking someone else has to pay your way.

Back when I was a young man, I worked 18 hours a day, and I paid my employer $30,000 for the privilege of doing so! You lazy, no-good, 'Merca haters.
