4. Do you ever see the tv show "Shameless?"

A little tough to watch, but it's just about my favorite thing on tv. It's about a poor extended family with a raging alcoholic dad and a crazy mother who abandoned them years ago. The oldest daughter of six kids (the blazing hot Emmy Rossum) cares for the kids. They're perpetually broke, no one has a legit job, drunk dad is constantly stealing the rent money or pulling disability scams.

Anyway, last Sunday's episode was great; The oldest daughter uses the already overdue property tax money to buy her way into hosting a club gig, thinking she'll make a big profit and be able to pay the taxes with some left over. Of course, things don't exactly work out. Brother warns her (and here is my point, and how it relates to your post): "Poor people can't ahead. There's no way to actually make enough money unless you're stealing or scamming."

Bilking suckers.
