    I suggested inspecting the system in which these poverty levels arise.

    What actually do you mean by "inspecting" the system? And what areas do you feel need scrutiny? It's easy to come up with meaningless nonsense, but really says nothing about what truly can be done, or would be done.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    These loans usually cost 400% annual interest (APR), if not more. And the finance charge to borrow $100 ranges from $15 to $30 for two week loans.
    These finance charges are sometimes accompanied by interest rates ranging from 300% to 750% APR. For loans shorter than two weeks, the APR can be even higher

    And this is legal? Oh. My. God!

    Meaningless nonsense like "it's the culture," yes, I agree.

    Most of America's richest think poor people have it easy in this country, according to a new report released by the Pew Research Center. The center surveyed a nationally representative group of people this past fall, and found that the majority of the country's most financially secure citizens (54 percent at the very top, and 57 percent just below) believe the "poor have it easy because they can get government benefits without doing anything in return." America's least financially secure, meanwhile, vehemently disagree — nearly 70 percent say the poor have hard lives because the benefits "don't go far enough." Nationally, the population is almost evenly split.

    Did you ever think that despite your rhetoric, what it means to have STRUCTURAL UNEMPLOYMENT in a country?

    OK - Do you think poverty levels are to high when compared to other OECD countries?
