    No surprise there. Posting articles is all I've ever seen from you. Not much on the 'thinking for yourself' thing eh?

    Anyway, is this the kind of poverty in America you're referring to:

    What is Poverty in the United States: Air Conditioning, Cable TV and an Xbox

    Oh those poor, poor Americans, playing X-Boxes with A/C on...must suck.

    Charities Struggle to Cope With Rising US Poverty
    September 17, 2011 - Recent U.S. Census Bureau figures show that more than 46 million Americans now live in poverty. That’s the highest amount on record since the agency began tracking poverty rates in 1959. Additionally, about 50 million Americans are living without health insurance. The increasing number of people seeking assistance is a growing concern for agencies helping the poor.

    Obama can't talk about poverty because he caused most of it. The poor are still, incredibly, his biggest supporters.

    I guess they figure he hasn't stirred up ENOUGH class warfare. So now they need to drag the poor into it.

    Progressives have no problems USING people for their political agenda.
