My Companion Piece to Steiny's Post
It's time to face the facts. There is no middle class. We all know it, but refuse to believe it because doing so is much too painful. But if you look at the state of this country, the truth is undeniable. I blame neither the Republicans nor the Democrats. Instead I blame the Republicans AND the Democrats. They got us into this mess. They refuse to get us out. Perhaps they fucked up so badly for so long that they no longer care to do the right thing. They have their money. They have their status. They have all they need and want. We, the American people without means, are unimportant. There are no lobbyists representing us . . . even though, when you think about it, the people we've elected should, in fact, be our lobbyists, right?
I like Steiny's post. It speaks volumes because it speaks the truth. Thank you, my friend, for posting that. This is my response:
