Thanks, Lis. I tried to explain to Willie that the European aristocrat-style "ruling class" isn't what Obama is after, but I don't think I got the message across. That's not Willie's fault, because (at least for now) it's a fairly nebulous idea and specific description isn't possible. But I think you and I agree that that s.o.b. in the White House IS after some kind of group, a chosen few in whose hands most of the political, financial and economic power will be concentrated, and that he wants ordinary Americans, who have always been the TRUE source of real power in this nation, to be permanently weakened.<quoted text>The problem I think is the way you look at "ruling class" If you compare it to France and England in the 17 and 1800's of course the idea of a ruling class seems ridiculous. Obama doesn't want lords and ladies and viscounts and kings. But the 21st century version is a class of special people. People who for whatever reason are not subject to what is happening to the country. Washington has little clue how things are in the rest of the country. Housing and salaries remain high and those in government and the special interests of Obama are not subject to his new rules. Roberta (or maybe it was Lyndi) is right. In order to make it work well for the government you need a big poor base. There will always be people who do fine in spite of Obama but unfortunately thats a smaller and smaller group.
I wonder if it's possible somehow to call a Terminator from the future and have it neutralize either or both of Obama's parents?
