    I might be wrong - things might have changed since I last looked, too.
    White, yes - but middle class might be up for grabs.

    Compared to the rest of the world, all Americans are filthy rich. If you don’t believe it, just listen to a few U.N. Global Warming summits.

    No it was definately middle class. The only reason I even brought it up was because several years ago I used the fact that they were over-represented by the lower class. Times are a'changin I guess.

    Indeed. A quote from an Indian immigrant has always stuck in my head about why he moved to America. He said he wanted to live in a place where the poor people are fat.

    considering that cars and light trucks get considerably better fuel mileage than before the 70's, we are using much less gas, thus govt gets much less tax revenue. Watch that issue, those federal and state gas taxes are due to increase just to cover hiway maintenance.

    This legislation is projected to cost 5.4 billion. Thats a might more than a few bucks at the local Office Max. It creates 17 new governemtn offices. It establishes undefined grant programs. It adds MORE waste and bearacracy when the government is already spending trillions OVER AND ABOVE the taxes collected.
