6. The working class Republicans I know

are swayed by social issues, gay marriage, abortion, welfare mothers. I think they use it as a smokescreen, so they don't notice the Republicans are busy picking their pockets.

8. Half the population

are easily manipulated credulous fools with two digit IQs. That is nothing new. Or, as H.L. Mencken is reputed to have noted: "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public." Sad but true.

7. Welcome to DU...

but, of course, the answer to your question will be no. I worked a job that offered comp time- it was always straight time. The working class is circling the drain- one day we are going to have to pick up the baseball bats and organize again. My grandchildren will fight the same battles my grandparents did.
