I was at a bar last night in the East Village and for some crazy reason they had Fox News on, and I just looked up at it as Bill O’Reilly was pointing out that 40% of poor Americans have internet and smartphones, so it’s really like how poor could they be.
His point being that, you know, no Americans aren’t really that bad off, so we really shouldn’t worry about it.
That’s such a stupid fucking point to bring up in the discussion of income, unemployment and poverty. As if someone can’t be poor if they get e-mail on their phone. What an idiot.
