Excellent selective statistics there,
"The average poor American has more living space than the average individual living in Paris, London, Vienna, Athens, and other cities throughout Europe. (These comparisons are to the average citizens in foreign countries, not to those classified as poor.) "
So the rural poor in America have less space than those who live in high density European cities? Go figure. Get this - The average rich person in Tokyo gets less living space than the average poor person in Montana. Your point is?
"# Ninety-seven percent of poor households have a color television; over half own two or more color televisions.
# Seventy-eight percent have a VCR or DVD player; 62 percent have cable or satellite TV reception.
# Eighty-nine percent own microwave ovens, more than half have a stereo, and more than a third have an automatic dishwasher."
You do know many poor people haven't spent their whole lives poor don't you? Or if they have. What does that say about social mobility?
I take the information from:
The Heritage Foundation
The Commonwealth Foundation

I didn't say they didn't qualify for assistance, I said they didn't deserve it.
Agreed. If I had my way. It would be Family first, church organizations secondly, and the government last. Just like it used to be. Unfortunately too many have the entitlement mentality no matter what their economic situation is.
