Revenge of the Middle Class-Well, Sort of!

Poor Man Survival

Self Reliance tools for independent minded people…

A Digest of Urban Survival Resources

"Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks.
Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools.
And their grand-children are once more slaves."
-- D. H. Lawrence

Retail sales have missed expectations for three months in a row and we just had the worst reading since January.

A Reminder before you dig into today’s issue and an announcement…


   Many of you already know that my health has not been good and recent tests have confirmed this.  As a one-person show I am finding my ability to keep up with the maintenance of our Poor Man sites a challenge.


We’re are a DIGEST of resources (like Reader’s Digest)in that I find, report and post a variety of content. For example, I frequently use material from Mother Earth News which they provide to me free of charge.


 I always try to credit those sources but as I mentioned, my brain isn’t always firing on all 16 cylinders and as the Google blog police recently reminded me, I must have neglected to credit someone so they yanked two posts (shoot first, ask second is their modus operandi).


Regardless, I will be transferring this blog to the site I own, one that is not subject to arbitrary deletion and I have placed all of these internet properties and storefront inventory up for sale so I can devote my remaining time to Habitat for Humanity, and my efforts at helping returning military veterans to start their own business, etc. [see the link below].


Revenge of the Middle Class?  Sort of…


The Rage And Revenge Of The Middle Class »
President Barack Obama and the Democrats are facing a disaster at the voting booth in November. Yet Obama and his Democratic supporters are so ideological, delusional and out of touch with middle-class America that they don't understand why this is happening

# Things have gotten so bad that even Wal-Mart is really struggling.  Same-store sales at Wal-Mart have declined for five quarters in a row and the outlook for the future is not particularly promising.

# The tech industry is supposed to be booming, but mass layoffs in the tech industry are actually 68 percent ahead of last year’s pace.

# According to the Federal Reserve, 40 percent of all households in the United States are currently showing signs of financial stress.

#The U.S. homeownership rate has fallen to the lowest level since 1995.

As the Middle Class and the tax base for cities, states and the federal government continues to decline, I strongly suspect our political system will continue its slide toward a total collapse while our economy spits up blood and the government no longer functions or serves the people.

During my lifetime I’ve seen much  America become like Detroit…a population and city in decay from 50 years of socialist policies and crooked leadership while most have their hands out in expectation of a handout.

Corruption and dysfunction continue to plague Congress and the White House leaving a few in this nation to serve as its moral minority.

What do you think or are you one of the unthinking masses?
