  •  'middle class' is shorthand for 'regular people' (11+ / 0-)

    in American politics. Man, everybody who ain't living off stocks and banking is going down shit's creek without a paddle. If it ain't them, it's someone in their family or neighborhood. But they can hear the roar of the rapids, damn straight.

    We all keep needing to spend more and more to get the same or less. And it's been this way since 1974. You live in any part of this country, talk 'getting ignored and screwed' and most people can hear you loud and clear, regional accent don't matter that much.

        Talking, hell, they should be harping on it hour by hour and day after day. We've got them saying 'this recovery' which doesn't exist for everyday people.

        Both parties are largely full of shit in the eyes of the public. And part of that is no one is talking about their real lives in a real way. Warren is.

        Besides, whatever the South does, we've elected Democrats President 5 times in the last 6 elections (The Supreme Court stole one of them for Bush the Insane.)

        Don't see how we don't get more votes by relating to real people's lives. If any Dem dared to do so.
