The middle class is being hollowed out; increasingly, there are the super-super-rich, and there are the rest of us.READ MORE
This reminds me so much of what the lady customer told us, her former company made Billions in profits, but yet still laid people off. What did they do with the extra money--that is easy, In My Opinion. After all, I live in the battleground state of Ohio, where Conservative PACs have been waging a very expensive television ad war against President Obama and Senator Sherrod Brown since September 2011, while the Ohio Democratic Party was busy Defeating State Issue 2, which if it would have passed would have cost Ohio jobs.
Americans aren't as divided over politics as the pundits say. But they disagree on everything else. READ MORE
As my fellow Barbra D. so elegantly wrote:
I am truly sick and tired of everybody complaining about having to share the payment of healthcare. Is this what American has come to? Our grandparents and great-grandparents pitched in and shared the load and got themselves through two World Wars and a Great Depression. White people got together and helped black people escaped to freedom.This country will go down the tubes because at least half the country doesn't want to help out the other half. How mean. How utterly selfish. For shame. We'd be nowhere at all, just another commonweath or territory about 1/8 our current size if people didn't get together and make something happen. My hand is out, brothers and sisters, and not to take anything from you. It's to pull you up here with me so that together we can help others.
I am sorry, it is topics like this that strike a nerve for me. After all, this is faar to close to the Cross that I must bare--the Cross of my shame--the Cross of a debt that I have now way on this God's Green Earth of Atoning for. After all, it was against a former co-worker at a Cleaning Service where we were not allowed to exchange too much information about each other--especially full names--we may have snucked full names when we first met a new co-worker, but after calling each other by first name and first name only, last names got forgotten.
What can I say; since Lora Campe can now be found in Medina. 'Dan' must have lost his legal case against her company and her sister--Ethel 'Jane', whom I remember (and now can never forget) gave this Diabetic the hardest and dirtiest Cleaning job as punishment for calling off the day before and somehow she was the only and only person who 'saw' him try to rip off my car, who(Ethel 'Jane' had such a reputation of being a Holy Ghost Filled Christian-too few employees questioned her motives--which proved to be the biggest mistake possible--because this Holy Ghost filled Christian is one of the biggest cons around--later far too late--I started catching her contradicting herself) was later found to be an expert at telling half-truths and other lies; and who would say anything not to cost her sister, Lora Campe, money.
BUT THEN AGAIN, AS LONG AS LORA CAMPE KEEPS PAYING HER RENT AT LANDERWOOD PLAZA WHO CARES HOW SHE MAKES HER MONEY OR RUNS HER BUSINESS--JUST AS LONG AS LANDERWOOD PLAZA GETS THEIR MONEY-MONEY-MONEY!!!!!
