I'd like a new car, so here's a bet for him, or anyone who whinges about "poverty in America".
Let's go to any place in this country where tax money is dispensed to the poor- food stamp office, housing project, or welfare office. We'll take a scale and a table of normal body weight.
For every applicant or recipient present who is under normal weight, I'll give him a thousand dollars.
For every one over weight, he gives me a thousand.
For every applicant or recipient present without a cellular telephone, I'll pay the same thousand. Every one with a cell, a thousand to me.
One proviso- the only applicants or recipients who count are those born to U. S. citizens.
Just for enlightenment, try going to one of those places yourself and doing a count of the portly cell carriers by eye. Your money at work.
