Fox News pundit: I was ‘poor’ at $100,000 a year.

In 1995, current Fox News judicial commentator Andrew Napolitano left his seat on New Jersey’s Superior Court to begin a career as a news commentator. Napolitano told the Washington Times recently that the reason he left the judiciary is because “I really was tired of being poor.” His salary as a judge? $100,000 a year.

He's actually got a lot of good common sense as a fux news man, but lets not beat around the bush. Doing the right thing doesn't come cheap, I guess?

.
What would you describe as 'living in poverty' ... ?


Is it a level of income ?

Is it a level of deprivation ?

Is it a lack of opportunity ?

Is it a lack of education ?

Is it something else ?

Well, I guess it's all a matter of perspective. If you're looking at making $600k a year, then I imagine that $100k really is dismal.

It could mean the difference between two summer homes and 5!

Or you might have to pass on that yacht!

*rolling eyes*

I remember seeing W. campaigning on TV when he visited a naval base in Florida. A woman in the crowd brought up the fact that it was very difficult for her family to make ends meet on her enlisted husband's salary. His smart ass reply was they they needed to learn how to budget. Clearly he had no clue how dismal enlisted pay is and how far is doesn't go. I get about 20% of what I used to get when I a road warrior. Trust me, it doesn't go far. But I can assure you that I'd rather bite the bullet now than have absolutely no life like I did before. It's all about priorities. I think I could easily make do on $100K a year. I think he needs to learn how to budget.

Or there is that audio out there (I think I've played it on the show) that has the woman talking about her three jobs, and Bush calling her proudly, "a unique American."

Harumph.
