I'll give an example of something else which goes on in the US and which really p's me off.
I don't really see how that follows, but I think it actually proves my point. Here's this family who, despite living on welfare, were able to save enough money to buy a factory. Now ignore for a moment the source of their income, and just consider the fact that they were able to SAVE most of what they got. Bet they did it by living well below their ill-gotten income, Is there any reason why people making an honest living can't do the same thing?
