If you’re a janitor at $18 an hour and you have a spouse or roommate that also brings in $18 an hour, that’s a household income of $72,000 - for jobs that require no education or skill. That’s middle income.


I agree that schools should prepare kids for at least semi-skilled work if they don’t go on to college. Senior year high school should either be the academic track or the vocational track.

Also, let’s not excuse the family’s role in this as well. Shouldn‘t Mom and Dad be paying attention to their teen, and guiding him to either enroll in a vocational program after high school or go to college?
72 grand is not middle income.

The libs are always saying how Trump voters worship their Orange God. Our only “sin” was selecting a pro-American president over a senile one who is weakening the country and spewing venom against American citizens who don’t think the way he demands.
Trump was (and is) pro Trump only.
When are you people going to FINALLY realize that?

Before the Communists released the virus they developed with Fauci’s funding, Trump had the economy going great and the illegals waiting in Mexico. Now the TalIban has our military equipment, inflation is at a 40-year high, middle-class retirees are watching the IRAs evaporate, and working-class Americans can’t fill their gas tank or put food on the table.

How you IDIOTS think we are better off with Biden makes me wish we had an IQ test before voting.

Sure it is. You sound like an elitist liberal.

And for the sake of argument, let’s say it isn’t. Let’s say it’s working class. Well, then a couple with a job at Target and the other one a janitor ARE working class. They want more? Then they need to get some marketable job skills.

It isn't easy when the nation has an excess of labor.

Um, yeah, they were also all white... you keep leaving that part out.



I'm not thrilled, I'm horrified that we let Wall Street hoard all the wealth and dictate the economy. Where companies pass from one hedge fund to another being stripped of all their assets to pay investors until there is nothing left for the workers.
Joe each generation when they get here improves on the previous one.

We don’t have an excess of labor. There are millions of people who won’t take jobs because the Democrats are very lax in handing out the freebies.

Someone who is massively successful doesn't go to the mall and whine there are too many pictures of black people.
Nothing wrong with pointing out racial bias, which is what is happening when 90% of posters are of a 14% minority.

I just got a MACYs flyer. Most of the models were black. In fact, there were group pictures in which every single person was black. And to top it off, there was an inside spread in which they featured two black designers, and the content explained how MACY’s is partnering with “brilliant“ Black women so as to bring “the black point-of-view” to their clothing line. What the hell? One would think that MACY’s cares more about 14% of its customer base than the other 86%!

The fact that I had a successful career is irrelevant to that.

The libs expect us to be quiet while they favor 14% of the population and discriminate against everyone else.

You ae correct as usual :)

The fact you are obsessing about your junk mail at al says otherwise.

If they are marketing your junk male to black folks, it's probably because that's the predominant ethnicity in your region.

Not that it matters, no amount of makeovers are going to make you look good.

No, blacks are not the predominant group in my region of the state. They are around 14%. It is RACIST for MACYs to send out brochures with the majority of the models black, when blacks are the minority, and brag how they are partnering with black designers to being the “black perspective” to their lines of clothing. What the hell?

And you’re not one to call other people bigots. You are one of the biggest antidemites in this forum, and typify the leftist: rail against what you perceive as racism (which in this case is pointing out how ridiculous it is for a corporation to focus its advertising on a slim minority of its customers and ignore the majority) and then spew your disgusting Jew-hate.

Blacks are about 13% of the US population. Hispanics are way way higher.

So true. But you’d never know it to look at advertising. Hispanics are underrepresented just as whites are. The ridiculous overrepresentation is solely for blacks.

And actually, now that I think about it, a corporation bragging that it’s partnering with blacks to bring “the black perspective to its clothing“ is offensive. How would it be if they said they were partnering with Asians to bring “the Asian perspective to its clothing”?

Recently I posted an article called "30 Good Things President Trump Has Done for America"

At the end of the list the author states this:

"If you believe (as I do) that God is sovereign over the affairs of nations, do you think that Donald Trump’s presidency has been evidence of divine blessing or divine judgment? I admit that perceiving divine purposes in human events is a task that cannot be proved with certainty one way or another, but when I look over this list of 30 actions, it appears to me to be far more characteristic of divine blessing than of divine judgment. If others disagree, I respect your right to have a different opinion, but that is my view"

In my thread a leftwing democrat forum member went on to respond with Scripture about helping the poor. The inference there was that democrats help the poor and Republicans do not.

That is a common belief, and a total lie.

Who has heard the phrase, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life."

This is so applicable today: Democrats love to give a man a fish and feed him for a day, or in our case they love to give people free cheese and food stamps. Republicans want to teach a man to fish and feed him for life, or in our case, create a strong economy with good jobs and allow all Americans the dignity or earning a living. Democrats do not seem to grasp the concept of personal dignity and the Godliness of a honest days labor.

So, when it comes to helping the poor, Republican policies are best. A rising tide lifts all boats.
Under President Trump we reached the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years, and in case anyone forgot, Trump achieved the lowest Black and Hispanic unemployment rates on record. As I say, a rising tide lifts all boats.

And as for social issues like sodomy (gay marriage) and killing (abortion) etc., well we all know what God says about those.

Go with GOD and go with GOP

I posted the real facts concerning what Party gives more to charity.
That was like 5 years ago.It was the Republican Party.Not by a huge
margin but by a significant margin.Like around 10 -15 % More.\
The Bidens as example give the absolute least.Total cheapskates when
it comes to charitable giving.Like less than 2 % of their Yearly intake { earnings }
We already know the Clintons lie about almost everything.
They're Clinton Foundation probably the most.Where it's been proven they
only { at best } use it for charitable causes 10 cents on the dollar.
Meaning all they take in only 10 % goes out for Charitable work.
The rest is spent by the Clintons and their foundation members on
Salaries,Vacations,Clothes,home items and dinners etc.

The Obamas were cheap also. They only upped their charitable contributions when they decided to run for the presidency and realized their cheapness would become well known.

It goes to core values. Good Christians help people out of their own pockets. Socialists like the Obama's think that is governments job
