Tulsa World:

Cell phone? Check.
Satellite TV? Check.
Enough food to get fat? Check.

Extreme poverty is a real bitch.

Phone could be one of those walmart prepaid jobs, the Sat dish may be for the entire complex, and yes if you eat the bad high sugar - high fat diet most poor people eat you will become fat.

I don't think I would call this extreme poverty though.....

Maybe in her next life, she'll be smart enough to not have children.

Cell phone and obesity notwithstanding... folks who have kids and then complain about poverty and/or cost of raising them are fracking morons.

If Americans cannot afford to have children, then we are extinct.

"Extreme" poverty doesn't know fat. Extreme poverty is rail-thin bodies and bloated bellies.

We have an extremely skewed definition of poverty in this country.
