  •  Who's "we?" (8+ / 0-)

    Most people I know are struggling like hell to even maintain a lower-middle class life, and lots more are struggling just to keep food on the table.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u52Oz-54VYw

    •  The governing elite who behave as if Americans (4+ / 0-)

      can afford the empire they so recklessly throw around the globe--while cutting programs for Americans who foot the bills in so many ways for addictions of empire.

      I'm one of the struggling, btw, small SS and more month than money.  And you don't even know me.  Don't go sarcastic before you get an answer.

      If you don't have a seat at the table, you're probably on the menu.

        And there was nothing in my comment that was a personal attack on you, by the way. You said we should learn to live within our means. I objected to the idea that most of us needed to do that--since we already have been doing it for years or decades at this point. That's what "who's we?" meant.
