    Sadly, I don't see too many in the middle and lower class without unnecessary items like the latest cell phones, the latest Chinese produced fashion, or foreign make automobiles.
    The middle and lower class seems to be its own worst enemy.

    Consumers Use Credit Cards for Necessities as Inflation Cuts U.S. Incomes - Bloomberg

    The middle class who used to rely on their homes as savings have seen their home value plummet to where their mortgages are higher than worth of their houses..

    This is the lowest Ive ever seen the middleclass in my lifetime, the worst postion they have ever been in...and the teaparty keeps RAGING how they need to rip the genitals off public workers and Abolish social security and medicare...

    This is the most disgusting display of greed in my lifetime also...and I pray it all backfires and blowsup in their faces.. This is truly dispicable

    Unfortunately, the definition of necessity varies from person to person. Present company excluded.

    I'm actually not protecting anyone. I treat people the same across the board. You problem is you want to rage against people that want to take your freebies away. Then turn around and pretend you have some sort of right to it. It would be hilarious if it wasn't for the shear amount of hypocrisy that makes me face palm.

    Everybody needs somebody to blame. It's the rich, the tea party, politicians, a specific party, a specific business, whatever the problem du jour is..they'll find an enemy to blame it all on.

    first of all, I have no idea who is a douchbag? conservative? libertarian? moderate? republican? democrat? I'ts a meaningless label. but I can say OP is correct to say that the current middle class is hurting, and pretty badly too. something we can all agree on. However, like people from different parties, we all have different solutions to this problem. Republicans says you need to put more cash into businesses, libertarian says let the people smoke more 'good' stuff, Democrats like myself thinks you need to invest into infrastructure and education to solve the economic problem. We all have our own say here.

    One thing I can say is that your blaming A or B or C doesn't really help to solve this crisis. Why not see if you got any ideas?
