  •  The "Hour Glass Economy" (2+ / 0-)

    Hourglass Economy is an economy that produces more upper and lower classes, causing a decline in the middle class.
    by the Left Hook description is good and so is cap & trade (pdf) advocacy but unions (pdf) should top the list - imo

    With a platform of protecting pollution industries, privatizing/commoditizing public education to siphon off $$$ for profit, and creating a two tiered educational system which will hurt not just inner city kids but rural communities as well who aren't rich, Dems have lots of issues to work with here.

     A lot of republican voters could be moved to choose between the discrimination promoted in the GOP agenda or be made to take another look at whether they themselves may just be the next to be homeless and in need if they continue to support a party that clearly & demonstrably (if Dems fight hard on what Dems have to offer by comparison - that is) has zero interest in a strong well paid middle class - of any skin color

    good round up MB

     - kind of a downer though watching the resurgence on so many issues that all somehow tie to segregation @ the core - a GOP fabricated dividing line at the middle class level between workers - which needs to be redrawn in peoples minds to where that line actually exists in the reality of the policies pushed by the republican party; people/workers/labor vs rentiér class/ownership/ the corpo-pseudo-suppliers of the cash we workers earned for them
