    I like it. Also count more than one 60 inch big screen as an asset. Count getting hair and nails did more than once a month an asset. Not only should more than one car be an asset, but if your one car is an Escalade, it's an asset. Another thing. If one qualifies for food stamps and can still eat out more than two or three times a week and most people that do not qualify for food stamps can only eat out once a month, count the eating out experience as an asset.

    There are more but I only got three hours sleep last night after Bama's beat down on LSU and I have a job.

    It might be, but I think the thresholds are too low..

    I did know one person (who had no income) on food stamps, but who, (though an unexpected windfall) had a lot of money in the bank.

    Now, that's not right.
