no doubt they have george bush's generious tax cuts to thank :roll::

and here's an interesting quote:

Since 1975, practically all the gains in household income have gone to the top 20% of households.


also, just by living in america, you're not all that poor - take a look at this site:

Well, yeah. Most people in this world are incredibly poor compared to us.

Then again a comparison of purchasing power would be better
Vive le titre de deux.
In an ironic twist, the only trait I find completely appaling is intolerance.

a very very large amount of the global population live in poverty, without even enough money to stay in an extremely cheap hotel..




But at least our government's are rewarding the rich ones for it :)

The second one is based on the world's average. It makes you look rich, even if you're poor (in american standards) :mad

yeah... something that might be a good idea for them to consider is the cost of living. surely, it's higher in the US than it is in some african country...

of course, then again, how many people in the US would actually even consider living with just the clothes on their back? the cost of living in the US is probably artificially high, but... blah.

Yeah, something that might be a good idea for them to consider is the cost of living. In the US sometimes you look like a rich person even your poor. But many people their would actually consider living with just the clothes on their back. But why persons who is rich they been getting richer. Maybe because of their effort to make their jobs or businesses a successful one.

Isn't "holy necromancy" generally called by the less-stigmatized "resurrection," "life," or "revive?"

Well going by it's entymology, "Holy" simply means "That which is set aside." Normally to distinguish godly things from mundane things, however it could be applied to anything which is to be used only for a specific purpose. In this case, raising up dead threads.
