"Poormongering" -video

By Proof

Here's Bill Whittle making an excellent comparison of what "poverty" in America really means.

"Poormongering" That's a good word. I like it!

"The richest poor people in the history of the world."
I have often noted that the "poor" in our country live longer and more comfortable lives than medieval kings. It's all a matter of whom you compare yourselves to.

"The real poverty in America is a poverty of dependency..."

And ingratitude. Rather than waking up every day, thankful for what we have, we as a people, rich and poor alike, constantly compare ourselves with those who have more and resent them for it and curse rather than bless our bounty and our freedom.

  1. Classic. I'm stealing it, from you, my blogging neighbor. I hope you are OK with that.

  2. Grant: Obama said spread the wealth, we say, "Spread the word"!
