    You want poor people living next door to 'real' Americans? If those poor people wanted to they could find a job, make lots of money and buy their own damn place to live. Why do they need a government handout?

    Why, just the other day (this is a true story) a multi-million dollar house was bought by the people next door to it (who live within a quarter of a mile of one of the richest people in the country - whose name every one of you would recognize). The bought it so they could tear it down and make an addition to their home for an indoor swimming pool. See how America rewards those who work hard and don't need the government for anything.

    Obviously snark (the story really is true, though), but it's the way too many people think....even if their house is only worth $80,000. How do we change that?
