America's poor are still wealthier then most people living in the world.

what have you wrought, barry hussein?
This is not a gap between "rich" and "poor". It is a gap between top wage earners and low wage earners. Someone making $100,000 a year is not rich in this country and I would hope people making more than $100,000 a year represents 49.4% of all income earned. This headline is contrived bull****. The cut off for rich versus poor is arbitrary. What do you expect coming from Washington though. And duh, it is only one year and we are in the middle of the worse econonomic crisis in how many years?

I measure rich not by how much I have, but how little I need.
Certainly a lot of us want more than we need, which is a good thing for the economy, UNLESS you are buying your wants using credit.
Living within your means is a good thing...

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
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.
