We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The MSM meme is that the middle class wants more care and attention from the O. More goodies, more empathy, etc.
That is BS. What the middle class wants is less taxes, fewer government jobs, less government - and to be left alone to do what they can do best with less government getting in the way of our lives and stifling the economy.
MICHAEL LEDEEN: The Real State Of The Union: Fear. “This fear is extremely broad-based. It is not limited to social class nor to domestic or foreign policies. Banks are not lending, companies are not hiring, because they are afraid of what Obama will do next. Both are afraid of onerous taxes, including new health care burdens, and the banks fear new regulations and the consequences of the recently declared war on evil bankers by the president. Seniors are afraid they will be deprived of medical treatment. Juniors are afraid they are going to be forced to buy health insurance they don’t think they need. Across the board, Americans are afraid they’re not going to find work, and won’t be able to afford a house. And, as the Massachusetts vote showed, Americans are worried about threats from abroad, worried about Iran, afraid of terrorist attacks, and afraid the Obama Administration doesn’t take all this seriously enough.”
There is nothing this man can say that would con me into believing that he cares more for me than he does for a rat or insect. There may be nothing that Obama loathes more than the people, like me, who comprise the "middle class". He wants us destroyed as quickly and thoroughly as possible. He is, above all, a communist.
I have to disagree with RickTn above. We do not have mere "theorists" in charge of [creating solutions to] real problems. We have very experienced Chicagoland communist gangsters who are feverishly trying to implement solutions they have been working on to the problems as they see them. The danger for we loathsome middle classers is that WE are the PROBLEM they are relentlessly dedicated to solving.
These people HATE us and everything we work for and believe in.
