American, 50% of our citizens are poor or low income. Shame!

    Well if a "lower" unemployment rate is because of Obama then this is Obama's fault too. This guy blows then! But in reality poor is a relative term. Very few people are poor or in poverty in America. If you have electricity, running water and food, then guess what ... you ain't poor!

    How so ? What more do they need to not be poor ? And how can I be a conservative ? According to the curent political ruleing class I am one of those poor guys, yet all my kids have cell phones, good clothes, I lay here pecking away on this computer with my dog on the floor at my feet we all eat well so then, what more do we need to not be poor ?

    You can't eat a TV, or wear a TV, or drive it to look for work.

    The fixation on TVs and microwaves is idiotic. People have lost their jobs. They still have the things that they had before they lost their jobs.
