If we compared our lives to those of the rich we'd die of heartbreak

That's a quote from a mcclatchey piece shared in google reader about
wealth disparity in china, but it applies here too. The Chinese
solution is to ban billboards with words like luxury in them, so the
poor can't see how the rich spend their money. Our politicians'
solution is to never ever talk about the class warfare that's
happening right now. They are part of the warmongering upper class,
after all. It would be imprudent to give away their strategy. But we
still know the war is on. We've been economic fodder for the last 30
