    A war takes two sides.

    For the past 30 years the Reagan Revolution destroyed the middle class. Our middle class would be 99% against the privileged class but the conservatives (about 25 to 30%) must be subtracted because the conservatives are against the middle class and the unions that created the middle class.

    Now we're down to 70% against 30%. But then there are the liberals who are in the stupid trance that keeps voting for Democrats.

    We need a party that will shut down all the crap coming in from China that makes the privileged class billions more $$ while the factories in America keep closing.

    We need consumers that take the time to read the labels.

    The problem with that is that different members of each class have different beliefs as to if and how they are to be degraded by or are to be degrading others.

    that is to say that people are divided more by ideology than class

    Why doesn't China have unions similar to those in the U.S.?

    I was in Wal Mart this afternoon. Chicago Cutlery- MIC. Oneida- MIC. All around us- Made In China. We've been reduced to a nation of selling other people's shit.
    We used to make the shit. Now we eat the shit.

    Private Sector Workers should take a 20% cut in pay to allow corporations to stimulate the economy and hire more workers.

    Hire more workers? To do what? Sell other people's shit?

    Read my label: no more TAXES ( Take All Xian's Excess Shit).

    I've always had a problem with abstract classes since they can't be used to create objects and must be inherited by other classes to be of any use. They're just freeloaders and should be taxed out of existence!

    I think communism has a lot to do with it...

    and profit will always be the bottom line...

    But.. I do share your frustration on this...
