Middle Class: makes from $50,000 to $200,000/year
It's not what you have, it's what you do with what you have. That's called budgeting and managing your income. THAT'S middle class.
Poverty also means poor today and the outlook is poor. So when you have virtually nothing and a crappy job and not much in the way of prospects, you manage to give your kid a little something when you can. By your logic, you shouldn't buy your kid anything, because you aren't financially independent, and you never know when you might get laid off and need the money you just spent on a tricycle.
Notice how no one ever says, "He says he's poor, but just look at that kid of his on a tricycle!" Tricycles start at $59 at Walmart. Tricycles for disabled kids runs $400 - $700.
XBox internet cellphone it's all a luxury when you've got those things and are using food stamps to get groceries.
If your outlook is poor and you have a crappy job, that could be your fault. No country in the world offers the opportunity as this country. My parents grew up in the depression. My dad could not go to high school because they were too poor to buy books. Liberals like you make me want to go puke. Life is what you make of it. Pessimistic people will always be miserable and happiness will escape them.
