Amway Global - 98% Of Americans Over 65 Are Not Living In Poverty!

http://www.census.gov/Press-Release/www/releases/archives/income_wealth/012528.html


"The number of people in poverty increased for seniors 65 and older — from 3.4 million in 2006 to 3.6 million in 2007."


While it is unfortunate that 3.6 million elderly Americans live in poverty, that is just over 1% of the population of the US. That is completely opposite of what some Amway promoters will tell you.

True JC - Seniors are actually one of the wealthiest segments of society! If wealth were there - there would be no Del Webb (among others) communities!

Levi, the link did not give percentages, it stated how many people live in poverty, which is about 3.4 to 3.6 million people over 65. That is about 1.5% of the US population.

rlaurens said...

So, Levi, are you saying Joe is off by 8 percent and those nice/intelligent diamonds are off by 97%?

Levi said...

So anon you did not go to the link? the majority are in poverty.

rlaurens you idiot the point is he stated a blog that looks like he did his homework when in fact his link takes you to a page no longer exists. whereas my homework shows the stats he shold have done this thread on.

and just what are those diamonds off of by the way?

Levi said...

joe at the bottom of the map it shows when you ask about the population over 65 it clearly says it at the bottom. dont screw our words.

you really are good at minipulating words are you sure you are not in N21?

Joecool said...

Levi, my thread is right from the US census bureau 2007. Your link is older.

Plus, some IBOs go around saying 98% of people are dead or broke by age 65. That is WRONG.

And if you want to call people names, don't be offended if yuo get some mud thrown back at you.

rlaurens said...

Levi: "But your honor, the complaint said I hit the victim 6 times with a bat. I never did such things. I'll show you a proof that I only hit him at most 5 times..."

And you said other people is the idiot?!? He..he....

Levi said...

Joe I have been getting nothing but mud slung at me. I am just throwing it back.

no one here wants to discuss anything it is an all out war between Ibo and the ex-Ibo with a few followers.

If you wanted a good blog you would have started one that way but it is apparent you chose an attack instead of posing a view.

my facts are not old and in actuallity one only has to look at thier own community and they will see the facts. yeah Ibo's use that percentage freely but it come from the upline who feeds it downline iformation thier downline does not fully reasearch. just as anything you can download and think it is a fact. did you personally reasearch it. just because one person reserched something does not mean it is fact when you can easily find another person who can reasearch the same material and find another view.

Levi said...

rlaurnes when Ibo's are off by that same number we are attacked for not being accurate so whats the difference hypocrite.

Levi said...

This is what your link says

•For people 65 and older and those 18 to 64, the poverty rate remained statistically unchanged at 9.7 percent and 10.9 percent, respectively. For children younger than 18, the poverty rate increased from 17.4 percent in 2006 to 18.0 percent in 2007.

•The number of people in poverty increased for seniors 65 and older — from 3.4 million in 2006 to 3.6 million in 2007. For children younger than 18, the number in poverty climbed as well, from 12.8 million in 2006 to 13.3 million in 2007. For those 18 to 64, however, the number in poverty remained statistically unchanged, at 20.4 million in 2007.

Joecool said...

Reading comprehension Levi. My title of this post says American 54 and older. You are quoting figures for people aged 18 to 64.

rlaurens said...

"when Ibo's are off by that same number we are attacked for not being accurate"

O RLY? Any reference of this so-called attack due to 8% differences?
