MSN Money finally figured this out?
Guess what, the middle class has been living this for the last 15 years.
No matter who is in the White House and which party controls Congress, the middle class has come out on the fuzzy end of the lollipop.
Economic recovery????????????? Bullsh*t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazes me how reporters willfully and knowingly write half-thruths and flat-out lies. Recovery hasn't happened.
why work for a middle class job? we can have housing,food,and Obama phones!
oh yea and free healthcare
The stupidity of marketed materialism has ruined us. Keeping up with the Joneses was neighborly competition... add a commercialized sports mentality and competition leans into sabotage and crime. In the early 1980's... we saw downsizing (selective elimination of the Middle Aged Middle Class) and from 2007-09 we saw it again. TWO groups do this... the should-be-retired-but-they-are-psychopaths, and their successor generation- soon-to-be-psychopaths. Each privileged generation doesn't help the economy, they help themselves to what the economy yielded before they scuttled it to collect. Without mesmerizing these fools into believing acquired and accumulated assets are what life is all about... we would have shallower declines, more modest rises and not be destroying the ground we walk on for a temporary profit. Time to END corporatism, which isn't capitalism... time to make False Elitists pay up for trashing us and send THEIR kids to the next trumped-up war.

Replace Independence day with it. We are not independent. We are dependent on China.
