It’s All In The Numbers

Middle class down from 71% to 51% of US population
47 million Americans poor
16 million dollars pissed away every single night in casinos
Above the former middle class huddled in storm drains
20% lost the middle class dream
48% of the nation in poverty
While the cream of the crop continues to feed on the demise of the majority
How could so few control so much?
A tiny blurb in the paper
10 seconds on the national news
20 million bring in $11,000 a year to provide for a family of four
Just a 2 inch piece
No bigger than a price tag
No front page
Buried 6 pages in
The one percent
Like a cat
Covering its shit
