    “Blight” of billionaires, in Trump’s case.

    Hey, I really like the cartoon Rad-ish!!! That is exactly right, the middle class is taking economic gas but they still vote for the media star of choice. Nobody really talks about the issues and their plans to try to make the country better. It is all sniping and opponent bashing.

    Smaller percentage of the population working today than when Obama took office, an inconvenient truth..Mr. Trump; no worries. Billionaires have done very, very well under Obama. Wages have remained stagnant (only for the working class) during his entire term… except for billionaires their wages have skyrocketed!

    The only thing that is going to save the Middle Class is the Middle Class. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class. Do your homework and find out who is working for you. If your rep is voting for the Middle Class, keep him, otherwise try the other party’s candidate. Keep at it until you find one who will actually vote for the Middle Class. If enough people did that, eventually there would be no selling out to the rich folks, because they would know it would mean they were getting voted out next election.

    ……………………………………………………………………………………….. If the candidate doesn’t have a voting record, find out who who is supporting them. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty.

    ……………………………………………………………………………………………. If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporations or from 1%ers, that’s who their votes are going to be working for. They are not going to go against them and do anything to help the middle class.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………….. It would be political suicide.

    Don’t disagree with you mikefive, and I certainly do not disagree with your experience with those agencies.

    But then…How many companies fight like hell to avoid regulations, hide what they’re doing, quibble about the wording rather than intent of every line of every regulation? And go to court to do the same thing?

    Not to mention the legislators or administrative officials who intervene to get the agencies to back off, or the enforcement agencies who give only a slap on the wrist for grievous violations?

    The most obvious recent example is Duke energy. With a former Duke exec as governor, and you can be sure that Duke did everything in its power to get him elected, allows Duke to be essentially unregulated for years. And Duke uses the situation to dump pollutants into drinking water.

    This scenario is repeated in every state and at the federal level.
