  •  I think you misread (0+ / 0-)

    I was referencing the fact that several entry-level white collar positions make $65K or more, which was your definition of rich. I am not claiming most people make $250K, which almost all reasonable people agree qualifies a person as quite wealthy. But $250K was my threshold. You set your bar much lower, which I think you would have a very difficult time justifying.

      saying no one is tall unless they're over 6'6".

      If you're making double or more what 70% of workers make, you're wealthy.

      If you're 6'2", you're tall.

        But I highly doubt even a majority on this site would agree. "Wealth" is relative, not a number but a standard of living. Nobody who has to work until they're 65-70 to keep a roof over their head is "wealthy".
