Very intersting. How about a poll showing percentage of how many people live below the poverty line worldwide?
The "poverty line" is an arbitrary, American construct designed to scrape together a pile of hapless dolts upon which liberal politicians can stand to gain power and wealth for themselves.
The average person living below our "line" owns a home, a car, and 3 televisions. And they don't stay below the line for a lifetime. There is a lot of movement between "quintiles"...the divisions used to track economic status.
There is no such thing as a "worldwide poverty line".
Unless you are a UN offficial looking for a reason to extort money from the US.
It is an interesting glimpse of your world view, however.
Some look to those who have acheived success and feel good. Others feel envy, and spite. They wonder, "Who did this guy screw to get ahead?"
"I feel much better ever since I gave up hope."
