    I'm pretty sure I don't buy into the premise that it's unfair for anyone to have more than anyone else, though I have seen that point of view implied (not expressed) on these pages.

    The relevance of the above to an Obama presidency remains to be seen, of course.

    I didn't even see that. If true, that is completely outrageous. Social Security, by definition, is not means-tested. You might as well call it "Old People Welfare" if that is true.

    That's ok though, I'm glad we elected a middle class president, then.

    You know the McCain thing was a joke, though.

    Yeah. I know. The problem is, modern Americans want socialism. If you define what socialism means, but don't use the word "socialism" or "communism," they say "Yeah! I want that!" It's a damn disgrace.

    It was very amusing - very appropriate for the LOLcats posters. I think I should make one with him going "The socialists are coming for you!" too. Maybe I can integrate them together - "I'm not self serving myself and my friends tax cuts, I'm just here to protect you from the socialists!"

    Add some bags of money in the back to change it to irony. Make sure socialist is in commie red if you want it to be serious.

    It would be very dramatic. I might have to shop around for some more keywords though. Marxist income redistribution... hmm...

    I'm keeping quiet until we see who Obama appoints to his cabinet. That, more than anything, should give us a real idea of what kind of President Obama intends to be.

    Does anyone feel they can define the middle class?
