55. I'd have to guess
Edited on Tue Feb-21-06 01:45 AM by ProudDad
a combination of 2 and 4...

See, noone's all bad (except Cheney)... :)


Actually any analysis of the DLC would HAVE to recognize a few truths:

The DLC panders to corporate interests. That's what they do.

These are MINORITY interests, most people don't benefit when corporations benefit. CEO's are by definition insane (I've personally known a number of them). They don't live in the world we working people live in -- their values are NOT our values. They are tools of the corporatist state and corporate capitalism and bow down to their god; Profit Ubber Alles.

We aren't corporate interests. I remember a wonderful statistic from the ronnie ray-gun years... During the roaring 80's, the Fortune 500 contributed exactly ZERO jobs to the economy while their profits went through the roof. I'm sure nothing's changed since then except maybe their contribution to the economies of China and India and they probably have a negative job growth rate here.

Until the working classes determine that these people ARE the enemy, that the system of exploitation being represented by the DLC IS the enemy, they'll continue to f*ck us over and rob us blind...

Just in case you're wondering, if you're not living (well) off the income from your assets, you are working class.
