Is there a single federal level politician who isn't utterly and completely out of touch with the real America, the America that 99% of Americans live in? One must wonder of these people are clueless, or shameless liars. Maybe both.
No classes, my ass. If the law applied equally to everyone, Beyonce's bodyguards would be in jail.
Mr Coulson, from the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn (where Jay-Z hails from) said he was appalled at the double standard.
'I know they spent $1.3million and I'm just a contractor from Bed-Stuy but the treatment we received was not okay.
'My wife is just terribly upset. She had a C-section. She gave birth to twins. She is sore. Nobody needs this.
'This is the NICU. Nobody cares if you're a celebrity. Nobody is star-gazing. They just want to see their children. To have that circus roll into town and ruin our parade was unpleasant.'
The triple standards exist in the American caste system. The upper class can get away with damned near anything -- how many millionaires go to prison for cocaine? Yet they're the only ones who can afford it.
Meanwhile, the poor are shunned, especially by the upper class who insist that America has no classes.
Santorum says that since it's possible for a poor man to become rich we are a classless society and have no royalty. Yeah? I'd say Beyonce is nobility and Coulson is a commoner. Yes, a poor man can become rich here -- my grandparents were poor all their lives, but my uncle Dan became rich. But it's rare; he was already gifted with intelligence, loving parents, eye-hand coordination, creativity, and a shitload of good luck. It's rare.
And why are the poor poor? Because Mitt Romney likes to fire people. He said so. And he's fired a lot of them. He says he's been fired so he knows what it's like. Well, no, he doesn't. Nobody with his kind of money ever needs to worry about losing their job. When a real American loses his or her job, it's economic disaster that none of the Republican (and few Democrats as well) can ever understand.
Remeber when Bush shopped at WalMart and was amazed at the laser scanners? Out of touch; they have no clue how normal people live, or how desperate the unemployed are.
