    Isn't poor also just a frame of mind? If you can get food in your stomach, even if you had to travel and suffer.. If it's more than what you had, you're not as "Poor" right?

    I just think that people get one life. Instead of focusing on what you don't have all the time, work with what you have to enrich that life.

    I'm sorry, I guess after struggling so hard to get where I am. I can't just let myself wallow. If you aren't happy, fight to change it. Even if you can't change it today, tomorrow is a new day...

    Short version here...there is absolute and relative poverty. There are many people out there experiencing absolute poverty, where getting basic meals is challenging. Here in the US, it changes as you go up the social ladder where you see more relative poverty - where you lack less resources in comparison to your neighbors. So yes, the rich are relatively poor in comparison to their super rich neighbors.

    I agree about working to enrich your life, but for folks facing absolute poverty, it is hard to think about that when you live from meal to meal.

    A positive attitude is a must, glass half full is always a better philosophy. I also think the Western culture focuses too much on the "wants" and too little on the "needs" and that creates a psychological chasm between haves and have nots...people get by with much less than what is the norm here in the USA....a few trips around the world, heck even to rural Mexico would open up people's eyes as to what we take for granted....sorry for the rant:-/

    13' Yaris. I'd originally looked at a 13' xD but I liked the two door option better. Plus it just felt better to drive. Less blind spots too. I like my cars simple. I'm not really wanting a direct injection engine. Especially not with ethanol in our gas. You'll burn up pistons.

    The cars with the inside similar to a cockpit, it's a no for me. I need to focus on driving not button mashing.

    Nice, I got to drive a white 13 four door Yaris on my trip to MN. I try to rent small cars when I am by myself on a business trip, even if it is not my money I do not like to waste it:-)

    Dodge dart is too heavy. In the long run it'll eat more gas and put more wear on the engine. That car was one of the original ones id wanted because it was bringing back a classic. Mopar isn't what it used to be.

    Dodge Dart is a rebadged Alfa Romeo with all the wrong badges!! Plus it is really tiny in the rear seat area - drove one last year when my car was in the shop.

    Agreed. Part of tthe issue is man a folk here confuse "wants" and "needs". When you do that, problems arise. When addressing that confusion never happens, ruts and crises set in.

    Here is a PM I got from a fellow WPC member to whom I sold a Lumia 822 about 10 days back.

    FYI, got the phone! I have been out of town and just got back in yesterday. Just now opened it up. Dude......... it's brand new. I don't know if you stole this off a dead mexican, it fell out of the sky of an office building into your lap, you work for microsoft, etc, but THANK YOU! It's in perfect shape. And, if you're mexican and you took offense, well, don't knife me. And if you are, then that second joke was horrible and I'm sure if we ever meet you WILL knife me. Regardless, seriously, great deal and thank you!
