95% of americans would think they were ABSOLUTELY RICH if they ever ended up with 500,000 in savings


For many - in many parts of the country - they would be.

I think the OP should be allowed a certain amount of literary license in making the point that in general the majority of the population of the US does a crappy job of saving and planning for the future.
