I have known people who didn't own much wealth but were thankful for the wealth they did own. On the other hand there are others who live in conditions that most of the world would envy and yet remain unsatisfied by what wealth they own. If you had to walk miles to work at some point in your life, you wouldn't worry about not being able to afford a Cadillac; any car that you could afford would satisfy you. If you come to America from a country that had no hospitals or doctors in the entire country, then you wouldn't worry about having expensive health care; you'd be thankful for the health care that is present in America. To steal a line from the liberal song "Where Have all the Flowers Gone?": "When will they ever learn, .........when will they eeeevvveer learn?"
