Without seeing the episode, she posted that she was killing herself on Facebook. It then took her 45 minutes to open a bottle of fucking pills, because ABC thinks teenagers are stupid. Judging from what they watch on TV, I don't really blame them.

Also, you realize that the top 20% income bracket drives 60% of consumption? And that the top 1% drives *20%* of goods consumption in this country?

We should be happy with this arrangement. It means when rich people get tired of things that are old, we can sift through their garbage and become rich like them. Trickle down economics!

Let's put this in as simple logical terms as possible, and I insult you because you ask for it, and, I suspect, enjoy it (or else you wouldn't be in a place where you are continually laughed at).

Here is the basis of Heritage's argument:

The poor are not really poor because they have space, and they own lots of things.

He does not talk about the fact that these things are bought with debt. This would complicate matters because...

If they didn't use debt to buy these things, they wouldn't own these things (making his case useless), but then they'd have the money to buy insurance. But they still wouldn't own these things (but they'd have debt-driven insurance), providing that they are not really old things named TV/Car/Video Game System. And housing? He doesn't even factor mortgages into this. He just uses how much space people have compared to other countries as a factor. UNBELIEVABLE that people are eating this shit up... Or rather, they just want to believe in it, because it makes them feel better. It's like Republican Money Jesus.

The fact that you are unwilling to even question a possible zero value for things named Video Game Consoles (or a 15 year old used car that breaks down all the time, or a tv with no reception) into his stats because you were in the boy scouts and you saw a poor kid with a Sega makes you look like you don't care about truth. There's no doubt that almost all poor people in America are probably better off than people in Gambia or rural China where they are treated as fodder, but then again... Who the fuck cares? Heritage's argument is thus: Stop whining, at least we aren't raping you in the ass every day and burning your children alive.

And at the end, he says that people who benefit from entitlement programs never say "Thank you." This is actually the only true thing about this video.

The people who get things from the government but don't say "thank you" are called conservatives.

You went to a house when you were in the boy scouts and you saw video games.

This is the argument you are using to justify your belief in the Heritage Foundation.

I would like you to move to a truly poor neighborhood. Then volunteer at a shelter or church. Ask them if they have any input on this man's deceptive statistical approach to defining poverty.

Also, cutting food stamps cost hardly anything compared to, say, the funding of the utterly worthless Coast Guard.

Try addressing logic little man, instead of whining like a little bitch.

durr durrr durr cena, durr durr durr. Way to completely not understand what the Heritage Foundation is saying.

There's also the point that many of America's poor own things that other people have thrown away. I'm not sure if this qualifies as real wealth. What is the value of 0?

Everybody owns more stuff because prices have been going down. Prices have been going down because production costs have been going down. Production costs have been going down because manufacturing jobs are moving overseas. Meanwhile, debt is going up. If you don't factor debt into this (which he and the Heritage Foundation is not in this case), then it's going to look like people just own a bunch of shit.

If you factor in debt, then the poor don't own very much.
If you say "Well then the poor shouldn't go into debt!" then you are also making the case that the poor don't own anything that they're saying they do.

I hate the Heritage Foundation.

For a list of what ALEC has placed into Congress:

Maybe I'm a hypocrite for being skeptical of reality.tv's brutality claims in the NY taxi commission/police station a month or so back. However, this is ALEC, an organization that fundamentally changes the national experience and the course of political discourse. The need for transparency is needed for journalists of any political stripe, even reality.tv.
