Quoted from whthrs166:
When it comes to the Philosophy of "your cup being half full or half empty" I am in the "Half Full" group. I believe you make your own fortune. I truly love the fact that I get to live in a country that is the land of opportunity! There are lots of opportunities out there it is up to you to take advantage of them. I also believe that something is only worth what someone is willing pay for it. (Let the Buyer Beware) If you can get $500 for a paper clip, you should. And the US is the place to do just that. Aim High! Maybe this guy is a Snake Oil Salesman. Maybe he is an opportunist. Maybe he is victim. You just don't know. And your probably aren't going to know. I have learned a lot about Pinside people from this thread. Thanks Pinside.
