  •  I'm old enough to remember when America was great. (3+ / 0-)

    I can remember when we were capable of great things - man on the moon, war on poverty, great society.  Well, not really.  I was a kid.  But still, these were my parents' values.

    We have sold that for a mess of pottage - for the hope that if I vote Republican maybe someday I will be a billionaire.  But I won't.  And you won't.

    It's like the kids whose only hope of greatness is in the NFL, or MLB.  You might be good at sports, but there's still a million other talented kids.  And we can't all be Quarterback.  

    I'm old enough to remember the middle class.  Heck, I grew up in it.  I want that back.
