Quote# 609

I dont think poverty is as bad as people may think, though I havent really experienced it myself so how should I know? But if those who are poor wish they had more, is it any different from those who want more and have it, and always want more?

Somehow I think that Person-Man skipped over the \"helping the poor\" parts of the New Testament.

There is a difference between want and need.

Money can't buy happiness, but it sure helps to make misery liveable.

And, on the secondary topic here: \"Particle Man!\" What a cool song!

No, because the improvished are suffering and the others are just fine.

Yes, Person-Man, there is a difference, you fucking asswipe moron. The wealthy want more shit they don't really need, while the poor want FOOD and SHELTER.

What an ass-twit.

Yes, because the rich don't need it. The poor do.

Don't trust me? Well, how about we throw you out on the street with only the clothes you're wearing and see if you keep your opinion.

Live off of stale crackers and old peanut butter or less for a few days while your landlord hassles you then give us a human opinion.

It's amazing in this fucked up tea-party America how common this "everyone suffers" shit comes from those who are comfortable and fed.

I guess some of this attitude come from cliches like "hard work never killed anyone" (demonstrubly bullshit) from people who never work hard or "money can't buy happiness" from people with money.

But still, can't you people see how having nothing yet still owing is a misreable existance? In no way similiar to your having to wait a year for that new car buzz or latest gizmo the other kids have?

Yes, because living in a mansion in just as hard as living on the street.
Quit defending the rich. They have more than enough money to do it themselves.

I fear this person is confusing can't afford a PS3 poverty with has no food or shelter poverty.

Its when you need to decide which people in the house eat today, and how many days it will be before you can go buy some food then you can have an opinion on poverty.

"I wish my kids could have a piece of bread and some milk" is in my opinion a long way from "Hey I only have a 27" tv and one HBO channel, I want a 46" tv, 4 HBO and Netflix.

"I dont think poverty is as bad as people may think, though I havent really experienced it myself so how should I know?"

Exactly. So shut the fuck up.

Do you miss your fourth meal as much as you'd miss your first and only?

Yeah, what's up with all these poor folk? Greedy sons-a-bitches, anyway, always wanting more, more, more. I tell ya. harrumph!
Why can't they just hold on 'til the next dividend check comes in, like the rest of us, huh?

7/8/2012 3:53:10 AM

try poverty for a while. I can tell you its no fun at all.

wanting enough food so that your kids dont go to bed hungry is quite different from wanting an x-box when you only have a nintendo.
