Asshole Trump’s China Tariffs Are Costing Me More Money And I Have Proof

February 25th, 2019 2:13am Comments off

Donald J. Trump, an orange buffoon, is directly responsible for making all of my reasonably-priced goods that I enjoy buying from China more expensive with his full of shit “trade war.” I bought a ton of stuff for my new place last September when I moved. Many of these items were either made in China or contained imported Chinese components. Here’s how the prices changed as of this writing:


Today’s price: $15.99 [link] | Up 14.3%


Today’s price: $49.99 [link] | Up 42.83%


Today’s Price: $16.95 [link] | Up 13.4%


Today’s Price: $25.95 -8%(-2.08) coupon = $23.87 [link] | Up 40%


 

Take my word for it, I can find 10 more, but you get the point… So until someone can make a better quality, cheaper version of these with good ole’ US of A ‘Murrican components, I want my lower price back and end this idiotic tax / trade war.

Seven “Affordable” Apartments Available in Astoria: 1BR Start at $2,000/Month

February 3rd, 2019 10:04am Comments off

Astoria Post – The latest “affordable” housing lottery has opened in Astoria and seven apartments in a 23-unit building are now on offer. The seven apartments, located at 30-68 38th St., are comprised of three one-bedroom and four two-bedroom units.  The one-bedroom units are priced at $2,000 a month and are available for household sizes of up to two people. The minimum income to qualify begins at $68,572 and goes up to $100,200. The two-bedroom affordable apartments will rent for $2,400 and are available for household sizes between two and four people. An annual household income starting at $82,286 and going up to $125,160 is required to qualify—depending on family size.

…Or you can leave that cesspool of a city, not deal with piles of garbage overflowing on the streets, bums, and a crumbling public transit system and buy an entire goddamn house instead. Ya know, not live like a savage. Not making six figure income and spending all of it to live in a Fyre Festival tent.

Let me get this straight. Your household income can be up to $125,160 and they’re basically saying you’re a poor person who’s eligible for “affordable” housing – a 2 bedroom apartment for $2,400/month.  And there are only FOUR available. Guess what. You’re not getting it, and those same units are probably >$3000/month if you don’t qualify. What a JOKE.  You have to have rocks in your head to deal with this kind of shit.

Do yourself a favor and live anywhere else. Your quality of life will improve 1000%. Mine did.
