America doesn't have poor people. We have people who are waiting on the Lotto to make them rich.

I resemble that remark. I may have a small pension that keeps my wife and I just above the poverty level in our 980 sq.' manufactured home, being reasonably independent and decently clothed and fed due to the frugality my wife and I practice, but nobody would call us middlle class or above. Yes, that isn't the "poor" destitution that often motivates people to go out and steal out of desperation, but it is still technically "poor".

I ain't waitin' fer da lotto. We don't even play it. We are not the only poor Americans with principles, Eddie.

This is my guiding principle/prayer:

Quote
Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:

Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.  - Proverbs 30: 7-9

We are poor but we are not greedy.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
