  •  That's stretching the bounds of "rich" (0+ / 0-)

    One way to think of being rich:

    Did you eat today?
    Do you own a pair of shoes?
    Do you own a change of clothing?
    Do you have somewhere safe to sleep?

    Okay.  You're rich.

    •  for me, depends on context (1+ / 0-)

      I am "poor" according to American standards
      yet rich when I think of the billions without clean water
      enough food and the other things in your post.

      it's just symantics as I said. If we want the most AMericans possible to listen and get why Dems want taxes to go up on incomes abouve 250K we might do better not calling ALL of those people 'rich" if they don't feel that way themselves.

      Still they need to get how good they have it. We can all use the reminder even those of us who make 1/10th of that or less.
