Rich versus Poor

Reading this article angered me a lot. The people described in the article are well and truly rich. They aren't super-rich, but they are rich. They have no notion of what being poor is. If you can afford a second home, you are rich. And frankly, every single person profiled in that first article can afford another $500 a month year in taxes (although they could afford it monthly as well), just give up one luxury item and they've got it. That they think they can't is pathetic. Via FilkerTom.
