Poverty in America (2006 - 2008) The Census Bureau uses a set of money income thresholds that vary by family size and composition to determine who is in poverty. If a family's total income is less than the family's threshold, then that family and every individual in it is considered in poverty. Sources: www.soundofforpoverty.org / U.S. Census Bureau
"You're playing Monopoly. One player is given all the property except Baltic Avenue. They're also given 95% of the bank. You're expected to succeed with what's left. Of course, you lose immediately. Why? It must be because you're lazy." And after losing, their child wants to play your child in a second game, but it's on the condition that their child gets to keep all their parent's winnings from the first game.
