There's a point where people aren't even speaking the same language anymore, and I believe we're nigh about there. Politics and religion can only be discussed by like-minded people, otherwise tail feathers get ruffled and friends stop being friends. I can do my howling elsewhere.
All I know, for me, is that I've worked my tail off for going on 25 years and I'm tired of carrying more than my share, on my back, up a hill that never ends. Hard work and trying to do the "right thing" have gotten me nowhere. Tried to save for the future--lost an unbelievable amount of money--so I seriously doubt either of us will retire before we absolutely can't go on anymore. There went that dream. We're putting a kid through college--don't get me started on that.
Why does the middle class have to make all the sacrifices? Why can't the middle class get a happy little slice of the American Dream?
