!!!! Want Proof The Middle Class Is Screwed, Look At Retail Stock Prices !!!!
Here is a good article showing how our middle class is getting vaporized


[link to www.navigatethezoo.com]

Today, Thursday May 26, 2011, stock market data unquestionably proved that the American middle class is being destroyed while the rich prosper. Even if you have no interest in the stock market, I will make this easy to understand and you will find the information quite disgusting........


.......In fact, the best two sections of retail stocks are the very high end retailers and the very low end retailers. This tells us that there is 100% no doubt that the wealthy are doing just fine and feel very comfortable blowing several thousand dollars on a charm bracelet from Tiffany and Co.

On the other hand, the success of the lowest end retailers like , Dollar Tree and Wal-Mart, shows that middle class people are feeling so pinched that they are dropping down to the cheapest stores so that they can afford clothing and an occasional present for a loved one......

MIT's Billion Prices Project, which aggregates and indexes the prices of goods from many online stores shows that inflation has been raging since late 2008 and has gotten only worse in 2011.

And how much of any of that shit do we need?

Americans are extremely fat and have problems you don't find anywhere else in the world like "Hoarding" and "Being unable to leave the house due to not fitting through the bedroom door".

It's time we stopped consuming so damn much.

Spend less, save more. Companies that produce bullshit plastic crap that is sold in these low end stores...why do we need that?

You need a 50 dollar vaccuum cleaner that will break in 3 months? NO. Take this broom for 2 dollars and sweep that mother out and burn a couple calories.

Do you need that 10 dollar toaster that burns your toast every single time while putting a hello kitty face on your burnt bread? HELL NO. Make a fire with a pile of crap that you brushed off your carpet with you broom and a match and hold your bread over that. You will also save energy this way while losing weight.

but the point is that all societies have imploded when their middle class dissappears, all the way back to the Romans.
