LOL! Apparently, you don't know about context. "Class" in reference to social grace, and "class" in reference to economic position are two entirely different things. How does someone "live quite well in middle class surroundings" if they don't have the income to do so? Do they use creative financing, like a lot of people were doing just prior to the '08 crash? Do they stay with a family member who actually DOES have the income for a middle class lifestyle? I'm curious. PS: "Middle Class" doesn't mean expensive toys or a vacation cabin. I shouldn't have to explain this to you. I think you are being deliberately obtuse.
Not using creative financing is a way of entering the middle class. You dumb union bozo types buy, buy and buy untill you are hopelessly in debt for purchases of junk. When the junk breaks and you are out of buying power then you start finger pointing and looking for someone to blame. Its like the tortise and the hare story. The totise ends up winning in the end because those with dicipline, common sence and intelegence know the secret of entering middle class life. Dumb union bozos only know gimme gimme gimme, a trait that will suit them well as they enter the life of a welfare leech because they ran their jobs off

I see either your comprehension skills or your communication skills are lacking (or both). You say "Not using creative financing is a way to the middle class". Though that is an odd use of logic; I agree... creative financing is not the way to the middle class. That's actually beside the point though. Based on your earlier claim; I asked you how people you know are living middle class lifestyles when they don't have the income to live middle class. I pointed out two options: A. They could use "creative financing" to obtain that middle-class home or B. They could live with a family member who themselves owns such a home. Either one is a facade. One scenario will get you in financial trouble and with the other you are essentially a charity case.

As for your "You union types..." statements: Generalized statements like that just prove that you have zero credibility and are basically an ignorant shill spewing regurgitated rhetoric. I'm not even going to dignify the details of your statement with a response. PS: I'm not in a union.
