How does it feel to live your life as the punchline of a bad joke? Working class Americans can answer that. They listen to the same joke and the same promises every four years even though everyone knows the truth: the working class must fail so others can prosper.
Every time we choose a new president we decide our nation’s future, or at least that’s what we are told. It’s almost never true. Even the brashest, most out of control presidential act can be stopped dead in its tracks by a simple court decision.

Show me a country where competition isn’t fueled by greed and I’ll show you a country not worth living in. In America greed makes us great. Just look at the lines at your local convenience store when the lottery jackpot soars.
Trying to connect the dots between housing, equality, and success in a way that makes sense is quite a stretch, even for Barack Obama. Our incomes are not secured by our equal protection rights.
