  • Can someone define for me exactly what "the middle class" is?

  • No joke. Is the Constitution relevant anymore?

    The President doesn't worry about violating it. Congress doesn't stop him. Congress itself violates it with impunity. Even the Supreme Court cites international law and "precedent" in its opinions. Is it REALLY the law of the land anymore if it is not properly enforced and/or followed?

  • Does anyone else scream at the TV when the Fox News Sunday panel pretends like Cain doesn't exist?

    Why is it that Fox has decided that the "republican field is weak"? We have a good diverse group of people running, but the media only acknowledges Perry, Romney, and a couple others that aren't even running? Do they really think they get to hand pick the candidates?

  • What exactly do we celebrate on Labor Day?

    From what I can tell, we're either saying "yay us" since most of us work for a living, or we are praising labor unions. Either way, it seems a strange thing to celebrate. So what exactly are we celebrating?

I mean. . how can you be impoverished if you are driving a car, smoking a cigarette and talking on a cell phone? Here are some stats I found on-line ****************************************... "The following are facts about persons defined as "poor" by the Census Bureau, taken from various government reports: • Fortysix percent of all poor households actually own their own homes. The average home owned by persons classified as poor by the Census Bureau is a threebedroom house with oneandahalf baths, a garage, and a porch or patio. • Seventysix percent of poor households have air conditioning. By contrast, 30 years ago, only 36 percent of the entire U.S. population enjoyed air conditioning. • Only 6 percent of poor households are overcrowded. More than twothirds have more than two rooms per person. • The average poor American has more living space than the average individual living in Paris, London, Vienna, Athens, and other cities throughout Europe. (These comparisons are to the average citizens in foreign countries, not to those classified as poor.) • Nearly threequarters of poor households own a car; 30 percent own two or more cars. • Ninetyseven percent of poor households have a color television; over half own two or more color televisions. • Seventyeight percent have a VCR or DVD player; 62 percent have cable or satellite TV reception. • Seventythree percent own microwave ovens, more than half have a stereo, and a third have an automatic dishwasher."
