So you think you belong to the Middle Class?

The other day I was listening to the NPR program On Point and heard a discussion about poverty with Cornel West and Travis Smiley. You can read more by checking out the below link.

The statistics and facts are a real eye-opener and may cause many to get their heads out of the sand.
Everyone is talking about the economy and it is sure to be a big topic during the Presidential vote getting season. Vote for me and I'll turn the economy around will be heard all day, every day until the votes are tabulated. But will anything really change? I think not.
Folks, I think we are on our own, no matter who wins. And maybe that's a good thing. Maybe it's time to stop expecting anything from any of our leaders in government, business and religion. After all, all of them are doing very well and they have us to thank - even though they don't.
None of our leaders in government, business or even religion ever worry about where their next meal is coming from, who will pay their medical bills or any of the other things most people worry about. Why should they when we pay for it?
Have a nice day!
