3. Sadly. as well as sickenly, many believe this.

Many take one look and think they know what is what.

Many seem not to takes into account such things as:

1) many a retail and cloths manufactures will donate items for PR/tax purposes.

2) That, yes many a poor have a phone, even nice ones. Many Corps. have jumped on to the, what is known as the " Obamaphone" program. This is a huge help for the elderly, those on the street, and those in dire economic circumstances to have the much needed communications that this world demands, especially for those that are desperately seeking any and all possible employment.

3) If you have a nice car, then you need to keep it. Many places, even with a well structured public transpiration system in place, even if you live 1 block (yes, 1 block), will not hire a person due to not having a vehicle. Many clam it shows responsibility to own a car, or that it is more of a guarantee one will be at work on time.

4) Many have computers they could sell. However, when even the Fast Food chains tell you that you need to go on-line to apply, it is a vital tool for employment. One needs to use it for placing the applications, receiving the emails, keeping track of when and where the application was placed, etc.
P.S. yes one could use the library, however the cost of going to the library everyday adds up. And many libraries only allow you 1 hour, unless you have your own laptop.

At last, many will see only what they want to see. It makes those that believe the "hogwash" feel morally better.
