"Being Poor"

Hey, we've all been there, whether we want to admit it or not. And if we don't, shame on us.

Here's the link: Being Poor

Well inspite of the cocksuckers, you have a great blog. :-) Jesus said, "If you do not know the poor, you do not know me." Too bad the religious right has never read the New Testament.

I read the "Being Poor" essay, and I found myself remembering how many of those were true in my own upbringing. It's not a part of my childhood I share with many people. I know where I have been, and I am never going back.

Ouch. Right there with you Loganite. It frustrates me to no end when I hear others disparage government assistance programs and those who avail themselves of those services. From looking at me now, no one would ever suspect that several of those statements were true in my own household. It's only through government programs like welfare, student grants and loans, etc. that I am even here today.

"Being poor is Goodwill underwear."

You can't get any more sobering than that.

And yup, I found myself nodding along, some from childhood, and the occasional one from today.
