GUEST,Dickey BS: Does the Green Party drive cars ? (117* d) RE: BS: Does the Green Party drive cars ? 04 Mar 07


Sorry Bobert but:

You brought up the statistcs in another thread that didn't have anything to do with poverty.

I am talking about reality 101. I want to know if this poverty line is figured the same for all countries of which the US is the lowest.

That $1300 per month apartment you mentioned is the average in DC, not the minimum. That covers from the Rock Creek Park down to $575 in South East.

Those income numbers Peace quoted were by the Census Bureau and do not include any benefits. "low income persons spend $1.94 for every $1.00 in "income" reported by the Census"

I would like to know why The average "poor" American is considered to live in a larger house or apartment than does the average West European (This is the average West European, not poor West Europeans). Poor Americans eat far more meat, are more likely to own cars and dishwashers, and are more likely to have basic modern amenities such as indoor toilets than is the general West European population.

Something does not jive.
