I'll try this again and why on earth isn't it worth discussing?

    It gets locked or disappears...

    This isn't a blue/red but a government thing and therefore should offend both liberals and conservatives....at least those not in leadership in DC where most of which make decisions unable to relate to the problems of common people.

    Explain. Or are you a politician?

    Economy threads are not generally locked unless people make them more political than they need to be.

    I guess I made it political. I attacked EVERYONE in Washington.

    Discussing the middle class and the global economy is like Bob Knight and rape. The middle class is told that it is inevitable, so they should lie down and enjoy it.

    A surprising percentage of Americans from a wide swath of incomes considers themselves "middle class." So the polling is flawed from jump.

    The reason this isn't being discussed is simple: Those who have the first-hand knowledge are working a second (or third) job and don't have time to discuss it.

    Simple: Americans allow themselves to get screwed by rich people because we all believe we're going to be rich one day. American Dream, and so on and so forth.

    Also, because we vote for people based on who has the most yard signs, or the best commercials, or the prettiest hair, or who we might like to have a drink with, or who we'd play a round of golf with, etc etc etc. In short, our democracy is entrusted to the people, a majority of whom don't give two shits enough to actually know anything about it.

    The fundamental flaw of democracy. Widespread apathy.

    Nobody in Washington appears very motivated to do anything for the middle class.

    However one group seems to be going to every length to benefit somebody ELSE on the socioeconomic ladder.
