Like the guy said above me, it just means whatever the average income is would go up 20k a year. So say if the average income in the U.S. is 50k a year, it would shift to 70k.
Right now the national average income per capita should be around 43 or 4k (as compared to last year's census). The only people that are making under 20k a year are those working the lowest qualifications of jobs (e.g. fast food).
The only reason we're in this situation is because people are ignorant too how economics work. Everyone is scared shitless to spend any money and think by taxing the rich more and lowering their taxes that we will magically get out of this "recession". The rich are already paying more than their share of taxes, so there is no incentive for them to stimulate the economy. The lower-middle and poor don't pay much taxes and are scared to spend any money so they aren't stimulating the economy. The politicians aren't doing shit because they are so far right or left that they can't compromise at all.
What it all boils down to is the U.S has a stagnant economy that isn't going anywhere but down because the people don't understand how things work (and the politicians are too much of extremists to do anything useful).
Also, I'm not lighting you up or anything. I just like talking politics and economics.

People just assume I'm from Michigan or Vermont because I don't have an accent and half the people down here haven't lived here more than a few years. I guess this is what you get when you cross Carolina with North. Honestly though, I just don't get how we manage that perfect 50/50 ratio of local country boys to drop-in yankees.
#346 - dermustang (12/03/2013) [-]
It's kind of an advantage because you can side with whatever group you need to and you'll blend right in. Yankees being a prick? Oh, I've lived here my entire life I'm an NC man. Rednecks pulling a Westboro? Hey man, that's not me. I don't even have an accent!
Not to mention I can get away with wearing paint-stained flannel and blue jeans during the week, and nice chinos and a pea coat during the weekend.
#352 - dermustang (12/03/2013) [-]
Whatever works. I'm a skinny suburbanite so I'm a little more on the "foreign" side of things. I got some ghetto hoodrats down the street, some trailer trash over there, some good ole boys right here, and some friendly-ish Yanks right next door. Winston Salem is a hell of a place.
#354 - dermustang (12/03/2013) [-]
I went to school with some people from Fuquay just outside of Raleigh, it sounds like a pretty nice place. Can't go anywhere without bumping into someone from Charlotte, and I lived in Greensboro for a year. Say what you want about Winston, you're probably right, but Greensboro went straight down the shitter in just the year I spent out there. Kinda funny since Winston's downtown got cleaned up a lot.
I never knew we had a fishing rod convention...
#360 - ncsutroll (12/03/2013) [-]
yep the biggest one around. winston is interesting in how some areas are really nice, some areas are hood as shit, and some are kinda in between. havent been there in at least 4-5 years so it could be nicer than i recall... greensboro is definitely going downhill very quickly
#365 - dermustang (12/03/2013) [-]
Sounds about right. When you're in the Buena Vista/Arts District area it's all nice and historic, but then when you cross the train tracks and get into the other kind of downtown and "historic" district, it gets pretty nasty. And then there's the suburbs like Old Town and Bethania and Pfafftown, just lots of grass and spurts of mini-woods and ranch style houses. Not exactly nice houses but definitely not trashy. We're a pretty average city.
#369 - dermustang (12/03/2013) [-]
Haha yeah, just stay in the right parts of the main city and you'll be fine. Most of the big events happen on the line between the decent and sketchy parts of town, so visitors have an awful time getting around. Otherwise it's not a bad place to live. I hear Raleigh's pretty good all-around.
#375 - dermustang (12/03/2013) [-]
Man all we have on my side of town are tweenage high schoolers and really old country folks, so people are always weaving between the lanes and doing half the speed limit or double it. If you're gonna share the road with anybody you've either got to be really lucky or really good to avoid getting wrecked out here.
#378 - ncsutroll (12/03/2013) [-]
sounds about right. got rear ended in august and the ladys excuse was that she "had to sneeze" and you cant keep your eyes open while your sneezing.. so that justified slamming in to me at 45mph when it had been stop and go traffic for 10 minutes in her eyes apparently
#379 - dermustang (12/03/2013) [-]
That's some bull, sorry that happened to ya. Bad drivers make me rage so damn hard. Did the insurance at least go through? I got hit by a 19 year old who was texting, speeding, and ran through a red light to hit me while I was pulling out of work. But because I was the one pulling out onto the main street, it was my fault. We both had cheap cars and the same insurance carrier so they were basically like "fuck it, we'll pay for both of ya, raise both your fees but only by a little since it's both of you, and don't screw up again."

I went from watching my breath freeze last night to wearing a tank top and sweat pants today. It's like this one comedian said, "It's hot, it's cold, it's hot, it's cold, my balls can't take it anymore! Mother nature's in endless menopause and now we all gotta pay for it."
