What is poverty nowadays?


Nowadays people have computers with internet connection, clothes, a home, a car, and claim to be poor... "we" scream "we are the 99%" being against the top 1%, but can we really put ourselves in the same place as the 80% of people with less than 10 dollars a day? We are the TOP 20% and still say, "I'm poor"... are we or are we just spoiled brats? What is poverty nowadays?

    Of course the homeless and hungry are poor, my question is what about all those who are not hungry, who are not homeless but still assume themselves as "poor" and demand others to give them more and more... I find it quite offensive for the real poor
