And you get to deem that why?

...If you can pay for things like food, clothing, rent, health care and what not, and still have money left over for $10 a month for broadband, as well as what it costs to own a computer or other device that uses it then you are not poor...

Really? Hmmm internet access is a must have these days. Just like water and power. Kids need internet access for school, adults need it for paying bills online, job search etc. You need to include internet access in that list of yours.

Yes. Really. If you can afford all these things, you are not poor. You want to see poor? Go look at a homeless shelter. Go look at people who live out on the streets begging for food. That's poverty. Most "poor" people in the USA have some kind of housing, access to cable TV, some kind of taxpayer-financed health care, taxpayer-financed food, taxpayer-financed or subsidized heating, and other "freebies." That is not poverty.

What is it with conservatives and hating the poor? You don't get to say who's poor and who's not. The government does that. For poor people who can afford it that is also the only form of entertainment they have. So I say they deserve it.

I have every right in the world to pass judgement on and criticize people who benefit from my hard work. And I will.

And since when is it the government's job to provide people with entertainment? Poor people outside of the USA would love to be "poor" in this country.

Go for it! There is nothing you can do other than whine about it.
