To save you from the whole video, the three rules begin at 2:20.
"The reality is, if you don't want to be poor in America, it's very very easy. The Brookings Institute, which is a left leaning institute, says you only have to do three things:
Graduate high school
Don't have babies out of wedlock
Get a job."
Now, let's look at the face of poverty. How do we define poverty today in America?
(And liberals, let's grow up and get away from this idiotic idea of income inequality. Let's try something actually useful.)
The world's richest poor
The following are facts about persons defined as ‘poor’ by the Census Bureau as taken from various government reports:
- 80 percent of poor households have air conditioning. In 1970, only 36 percent of the entire U.S. population enjoyed air conditioning.
- 92 percent of poor households have a microwave.
- Nearly three-fourths have a car or truck, and 31 percent have two or more cars or trucks.
- Nearly two-thirds have cable or satellite TV.
- Two-thirds have at least one DVD player, and 70 percent have a VCR.
- Half have a personal computer, and one in seven have two or more computers.
- More than half of poor families with children have a video game system, such as an Xbox or PlayStation.
- 43 percent have Internet access.
- One-third have a wide-screen plasma or LCD TV.
- One-fourth have a digital video recorder system, such as a TiVo.
Today's poor are living a better and more affluent lifestyle than the richest Americans in 1920.
