Please, I hate to enter into it with you, because I know who i am
arguing with, but how can someone be poor AND rich at the same time? >>

WEll speaking as one ole truckdriver....

Today's "street person' i.e in wealth beyond dreams of
avarice of the serfs of the middle ages.

Or to put it another way...

In times gone by only the ruling class, those with "the divine right of
Kings"...had such things as....more than one set of clothes....

So poor by todays standards...(I was In South East Asian during the Viet Nam wanna talk about POOR? There ARE no poor in current day USA.)
is rich...haloucinagenically standards of the past.

And starve? In the US? I don't THINK so. Not unless they are terminally
stupid...too many freeebies available.

Hint: Try explaining a VCR...or even a TV to Pharoh Rameses II...or King
Edward the whatever.

In the not too distant past the average life expectancy was ......20.
By that standard I'm working on three life spans...and NO ONE could call me
rich....I'm just a poor ole truck my 100 hrs a week (give or
take) and be glad to have it...

Still near that Obscene sounding Little Town In Florida.
