Plutocracy and the obsolescent Middle Class


It’s been nice knowing you, Middle Class.

For you’ve  virtually vanished, alas

But it shouldn’t surprise

Since the One-Percent buys

Votes to get their bills needed to pass.

  • 1. I could never figure out that while Pluto and Goofy were supposedly both dogs, Pluto didn't talk, but Goofy did.
    2. Since Trump is part of the 1/4 of 1%ers, I still don't see how the right wing thinks he will challenge the "corporate oligarchy," especially when 4zen linked to a site saying that Trump says he used bankruptcy as a business tool. Maybe the corporations will all convert to LLCs.
    3. Illinois still has the best Democrats money can buy. Why do you think Mike Madigan continually has scheduling conflicts when the popularly elected governor calls a budget conference because Cullerton keeps asking for one? Bait and switch due to a certain class of campaign contributors.

  • 2. Because I believe Trump's rhetoric points to a new blend of common sense socially liberal, fiscal conservatism that can achieve progressive results without big corrupt government or corrupt unions. Maybe a new party that extends past him.

    3. Absolutely.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    But Trump's rhetoric is not believable because:
    a. he stumbled all over himself yesterday trying to get out of the killing journalists mess, typical of that he will b.s.rather than admit anything.
    b. his business history, including the admitted use of bankruptcies and admitted use of bullying lawsuits.

    Didn't Trump sign the GOP pledge not to run a third party?

    If you believe in the progressive conservatism, get Warren Buffett or Bill Gates to run.

    I left out "not" before "admitted use of bullying..."

  • And, of course, this from the guy who demands apologies from everyone, but never, never apologies for anything. I guess one can do that if one is perfect.

    But Trump lied about the thousands of Muslims in NJ cheering the WTC coming down. Has he apologized?
