If they are on Welfare, Foodstamps, section 8 and other bennies, then yes, they shouldn't be enjoying life on someone else's dime.

Hey guys, if you can't even drop $500 on a video card, you're most-likely on welfare.

If you are poor, shouldn't you be finding ways to make more money instead of wasting time playing video games?


You have no right to call others poor then you still live with your parents.

Sorry guys it is a 4850 HD.


By poor I mean I have 2 kids, a house, 2 cars, a wife, a cat, a phone bill and all the other bills that come with owning a home, and having 2 kids and a wife. I can't just throw money at whatever I feel peachy about throwing money at, I have to be wise about how I spend it. I am saving money for a better card, but that could take me 6-12 months, and even then it will probably be spend on something more important like a car repair.

4850 will do just dandy. Dirt 3 is not particularly demanding.

Because people aren't allowed to enjoy themselves because they're poor.

He clearly means he's too poor to afford something superfluous like a video card upgrade. Some people on these boards really need reading comprehension lessons/
