UPDATE : It's good to see old Los Angeles get back to basics doing what they do best ... looting, pillage, burning, killing and rapine. Whenever somebody says "diversity" to me, I always detect the phantom smell of charcoal in my nostrils. I'm like Pavlov's dog salivatin' whenever they play "It's a Small World, After All" except I panic thinking there must be a fire raging out of control somewhere and feel a powerful impulse to drop on my stomach to avoid being hit by stray rounds. That's my kneejerk response. Globalism is paid for with rivers of human blood.
The whole point of the United States was that the stable, prosperous middle class was the foundation of the entire nation's ethos and ideological framework.
Without a middle class, you got just another stinking banana republic. All the 'Stain needs now is for Obama to put on some kind of military regalia and begin to wear sunglasses and a beret during his public appearances. UPDATE : Notice that the rule of law has given way to "noblesse oblige" - your security vouchsafed for by the emperor, until he has a bad day.
The middle class was the whole of the United States - a society intended to be classless in the sense of upward mobility for everybody.
People who claim this is a failure of human freedom are proof that Constitutional government ended a long, long time ago in the United States. Sometimes I like listening to people try to explain what principles they think the U.S. was founded upon. It is always prima facie evidence they are simply not worthy to live there. A nation of morons could have the most elegant and successful system of government ever created (it did) and it would decline into a third world hellhole within a single decade. (It did.)
