    His needs are still being met.

    Just to be clear then, for the poor you want to talk about percent of income, but for the rich is raw cash value. Gotcha.

    What are you talking about? The fact that i recognize that different people are in different situations and judge those situations accordingly? Oh no!

    As if this means anything for the general state of the economy for the rest of society.

    I guess getting stuffed in trash cans as a child, outworked in the workplace, and outachieved elsewhere leaves little left but to trumpet the bad news of others.

    Conservatives are quick to point out that the poor should just learn to live within their means, bootstraps, etc, but when you apply it to someone in the top 1% income group, it's class warfare.

    I am not a conservative that would be quick to point out that everyone learning to live within their means is class warfare. Just the opposite. I have about as much sympathy for a poor 350k/year accountant that has to wash his own dishes as I do for the person at the bottom who complains that the handout given to him/her is not enough.

    No, it's just sad that the enjoyment found by some in life comes from chuckling at these folks' troubles.
