    Shop around you can normally find deals. Also inexpensive food not really but every now and then there are good deals.

    Yes it is inexpensive, unless you want to get off of petroleum based fertilizers, then we can see $5 cucumbers.
    Try living on a $2,000 a year, that is what most of the rest of the world lives on.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I do thank for being born here but I don't have clean water. Our water comes from a well so its not clean to drink. Also clean water is available in Western Europe and they have general comfort and access to inexpensive food they just can drive to Poland and stuff where things are inexpensive.

    That's not just an implication, that's a direct statement. You're free to characterize that as a failure, but given that there is only one nation with a higher median income, I think that's a bit ridiculous.

    appears we disagree on that as a "success" indicator
    check out this graph and hopefully recognize the position you attempt to criticize is actually quite valid:
    Taking facts that are already well understood and putting them in a colorful graph doesn't affect whether the position asserted is more valid. Are you saying that a median household income of $50k is something to be ashamed of? Are you saying that we should be angry that 98% of people make less than $250k? What percent would make you happy?

    I just see a lot of people bitch about how had they have it, when most of the rest of the world is generally a **** hole, comparatively.
    The 1st world has it good, after that things go down pretty quick.

    The rest of the world has a different standard of living than we do. That sure is a stretch to say that a lack of oil based fertilizers will makke cukes cost five dollars. Proof?

    And I'm asking you what you think that means, because it's certainly not a rebuttal to my point.

    I buy my groceries online and have them delivered to the door of my Manhattan apartment. I pay 69 cents/cucumber and 99 cents/lb for onions. I find it hard to believe that you're paying 90/2.29 at a Walmart.

    I agree. I have been to India and lots of nations in Europea and Mexico. And I can say that Americans' are shocked at the poverty in Mexico they should go to India and see what really really poor people look like. I will never forget the ugliness of India such a chithole.

    Right the rest of the world has it worse then we do. If we want to go about fixing things the first thing would be to limit the government authority and put money where we will benefit the most from having expenditures in. Like funding for science, military tech, and smart welfare.

    It's the point that people here have it hard, they don't by and large.

    If we have the money to house and feed morbidly obese people by calling them "disabled" we are not in a position to cry about how hard we have it.
