I will not deny that I lean to the right, but I largly try to ignore the little (R) and (D)'s as much as humanly possible, because they addle one's brain. When you begin to focus on the R's and D's, a hive-like behavior occurs, and pretty soon, all you can think about is the little R's and D's.
And I'm not spinning anything, when I said these people had jobs, you're tone was distinctively, "Yeah right... those jobs are worthless".
Am I wrong?
That to me is an elitist, arrogant way of looking at things - and therefore wrong. I think that all forms of employment are respectable and worthy. Even at Walmart. Even at McDonalds. Someone needs to do these jobs.
And for the record - my wife worked at Walmart, not so very long ago. Her benefits were just fine. Most were almost as good as mine, and some were even better (like dental).
She was not in management - she was a 'worker-bee'. After her 90 day probation period, her benefits kicked in, and they were fine. So, I still don't believe any of that you're spewing up there. Being that I'm familiar with it first hand.
Here's the big shocker: With drive and determination I have managed to bite and claw my way into the upper middle class from my lowly McStation in life... I daresay most of these people you sympathize with will do the same.
Furthermore, the work and drive will make them respect and appreciate it all the more.
I want to die like I was born. Screaming and covered in blood.
