This is an interesting video that takes a look at what the people in America own. Rich and poor, what percentage of americans own refigerators, televisions, and so on. You hear a great deal about the divide between rich and poor in this country, I think that this video and the charts that it explores put a clearer picture on the issue. It is also by Bill Whittle who is always someone to watch...

I'll leave the philosophizing of the second half alone, but one glaring omission I saw in the stats was a definition of "poor." Poverty and wealth are always relative, but if they're including those with an annual income in the $30K range it would throw everything. Without a concrete definition of "poverty" for the sake of the survey, there's really no point.
