Middle-class this, middle-class that, WHAT ABOUT US POOR PEOPLE???

It seems like the only time we get mentioned is when RW assholes like Mittens and Newt shit on us, otherwise zilch. It's all about "the middle class", a sickening term the PTB use to divide the more well off wage slaves from the less well ones.

This is why OWS and it's 99% meme is so important, it focuses on the real issue.

1. I agree to give you an example

on October 27, 1988 I was one of seven who went to a George Bush for president rally in Tacoma, Washington...11 minutes into the rally I yelled "What about the poor George Bush, what about the poor?" at which point I was spit on, hit over the head with yard sign and had my glasses ripped off of me, and I was the one arrested and charged with disorderly conduct!

2. I agree. The focus on the poor by some OWS branches is

a very good thing.

5. I've never understood the term middle-class.

I never use it unless I'm quoting someone. I've been working poor my entire adult existence. Now half the US is poor. I wonder what the "middle" is now?
