That doesn't answer my question. Can you live on $17/hr in CA?
As for the stratified economy, that varies greatly by state, with CA
being one of the very stratified states with low end jobs, high end
jobs, and little in between.
This stratification is indeed a huge issue, and one that the left wing
simply doesn't understand. Obummer's SOTU address showed that he didn't
understand this fundamental problem either. The left wing thinks that
somehow pressuring everyone into college will somehow magically allow
them to get one of those high end jobs, and if they can't make it then
all they are good for is some low end janitorial job. This is of course
a recipe for disaster and is very much part of the growing gap between
rich and poor, a gap that ultimately leads to societal collapse if it
No country can put all it's eggs in the "knowledge economy" basket,
think that it can just export all it's "foundational" jobs to third
world countries and think that those third world countries won't catch
up and compete in the "knowledge economy". Every country needs to
maintain a diverse economy with solid midrange jobs and manufacturing
capability. Imported goods need to be strictly novelty or luxury items

A so-called "20lb" propane tank can only "safely" hold 17 or 18lbs of
liquid propane. Calling it a "20lb" tank was sleazy marketing from the
get-go. Properly filled tanks have NEVER had 20lbs of propane in them.
There's a lot to be said for downsizing the amount of product you get,
rather than raising the price... As a general rule, your average mook
on the street is a moron.
History has shown that keeping the package size the same and raising
the price causes people to look for cheaper alternatives.
Appartently, 20lb is how much a tank will hold if FULL of liquid propane. It
can't be filled full, since some space is required for it to vaporize. Blue
Rhino puts 15lb in a tank, but it can hold more.
I get propane at a store that uses a company called "Heritage Propane" that
puts in 17lb (for about the same price).
