    I think your definition and mine of what's wealthy vs. middle class are probably different. Many people that I would consider wealthy consider themselves middle class because they aren't at the level of the super-wealthy.

    Wow - you maybe should try to talk to someone about your anger or at least your personality.
    I'm not angry. Nor would I have been angry if Romney won.

    It's a scary, scary time in this country when people can got so worked up over nothing and are unable to laugh at themselves. It means that as a country, we will bring ourselves down.

    If someone had posted a letter picking on Liberal,elitist, latte-drinking, Prius-driving, NPR-listening Eaterner or Californian/PNWer OR poor GA-using, entitled, lazy and probably a minority - I would have found that equally funny. I just happened to get the "red state" letter...

    I was just thinking the same thing - if the "ESA" only wants the blue districts, they're really gonna have a tough time feeding themselves. Though that would do wonders for the rest of us when we get to export all that lovely food and water that they're gonna need.

    And I missed the requirement to be a old white man to be a republican. Someone's going to have to break it to my husband that he actually married a dude.

    This post, where I merely explained why some people may have a difference of opinion on what makes someone wealthy vs. middle-class, got a bad rating? Really?

    Definition of wealthy: Someone who has a nice house and more $ than me.

    Definition of tax loophole: A tax deduction I don't qualify for.

    I'm not sure how you get 'angry from that. BTW, I accidentally quoted you again, went back and deleted it if that is what you are wondering about. But no, definitely not angry.

    But I will say I am sad. Although this board has always been a rough-and tumble kind of place and requiring a thick-skin, the degree to which some people are getting offended and the anger they are expressing at a tongue-in cheek (to quote another poster) makes me sad.

    Sorry, that's Miami-Dade county, not the whole state. There have just been so many numbers thrown around the last few days--270! 49! 54! 330! Gah! And in all honesty, the left side of my brain is an atrophied, shriveled little Craisin, so mixing up numbers is not exactly a rarity.

    ...Would I secede? Not really, because we are stronger as a union which can share resources and ideas. But that doesn't mean I agree with the ideals of many in this state or this country. Starting with laws that allow discrimination and hatred. What are conservatives so afraid of?
    Another poor democrat and this is exactly how I feel about it. Trickle down economics results in an even greater concentration of wealth among the wealthiest. I think entitlement programs are a necessary evil in order to protect children who where not born into as relatively fortunate circumstances as I. In need of reform? Yes. But they shouldn't be gutted in favor of tax breaks for corporations and the very wealthiest.

    I also own a handgun and follow NASCAR ( 99th percentile nationwide in my fantasy league thank you very much ). My Twitter handle is NASCAR_Hippie LOL

    Can I set the tariffs on coffee that goes through the port of New Orleans? Eh, we'll just set tariffs on EVERYTHING that comes through our port.

    You won't see me shed a tear if the blue states secede. THere have been places in the south that have historically refused federal aid. Has ANY county in a blue state done that? I don't think so.

    You also leave behind Loyola and Tulane, wild caught shrimp, rice and sugar cane. Pecans, peanuts, well like someone said, FOOD.
