Fox News suggested this week that Americans who had access to computers and air conditioning could not really be considered poor. "The war, this war against poverty was plotted to continue indefinitely," Fox News host Greg Gutfeld opined.

I guess he won't be happy until "poor" people are camping out in their cars, which won't run because they can't afford gas, and dying from heat stroke. Oh wait, that's what thousands of homeless people are doing now. What an idiot!

Far to many hair-brained idiots around. Freedom of speech is great, but beware of those with forked tongues!!
Thanks Carrie..

Good thing he didn't include tv, or else he'd be out of a job ;)

"What fresh hell is this?" So he has income eligibility requirements for computer and television ownership?!! He is putting for falsehoods and intentional manipulation of census data. Most of the programs were working TOO WELL ...the reason why Republicans systematically sabotaged the War On Poverty [along with the New Deal] with systematic cuts, cut-throat restructuring, and diversion of funds to Republican's machinated arenas of interest... since Johnson left office. True parameters for evaluation were/are either altered, misinterpreted and/or misrepresented. Ignorant gullible members of the GOP never understood how it worked in the first place. There has been a used computer and electronics market for quite a few years now. Gutfoul is probably not well-versed in clearance, bargain, discount, outlet and garage sale markets. In many places across the county... low-cost/no-cost computers have been available for persons with very limited means for at least 15 years. People with lower incomes CAN receive gifts. Bridging the digital divide is a national awareness campaign. Gutfoul Fox Flush is another whacko libertarian with severe self-righteous ego bloat who believes his shallow selfish contorted views are some kind of new super brew awareness...when they're just a tired tawdry old ilk of ignorance and stupidity. . .]

I'm so sick of the FOX HATE CULT. How is it some young people haven't done something to stop the Nazi's from airing their crap?

I only see Fox News when it's posted on here. I simply cannot watch their news. If I was forced to I would probably throw something at the tv, end up breaking the tv which apparently is a luxury item. And I know to many out there a tv is a luxury item.

So Faux Noise thinks the poor aren't poor enough yet. How unsurprising and very Republican of them
