Whoa, slow down folks. Lots of good and decent people are poor. Granted, some people are poor due to circumstances they can control, but others are poor due to circumstances beyond their control. I've been there myself, to the point of being homeless. Before we all go dissing poor folks, we should remember that any of us could be in the same boat rather quickly in todays world. I understand the people you are talking about...maybe we just need to find another label for them....like 'losers'?
