    That statistic is utter BS.

A poor person in the US has a better standard of living than most of the people on this planet. Boo hoo.

    You seem to miss the fact that many of the 1 in 6 living in poverty used to live in middle class before the last 30 years of trickle down economics. Perhaps you think the middle class should be happy about this downgrade? From what I am seeing in protests in 48 of our states, they don't seem to be as happy about the downgrade as you say they should be.

    I hate to break it to you but after 30 years most people retire and earn a fraction of their working salary as part of retirement. It's a problem that people retire on less than they made while actually working?
    Is it a problem where our lifestyle in the U.S. is dramitcally higher than in nearly every other corner of the globe? Killing me.

    What are you saying? That the middle class should be happy that the middle class of the 60's were doing well, but they should be content with poverty, while the rich have gotten much richer? That's your idea of shared sacrifice?

    From the majority of US economists.

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
