Great post.  

I find it interesting how people try to use income as some measure of equality.  My inlaws lived on Social Security and towards the end they had a new car, newer trailer in the southwest and a really nice TV.  They used their SS for food, lot rent and medical.  They pretty much did very little else.  I would call them poor, but amongst their peers in the community they were well to do :)
