The Shrinking Middle Class

Liberals and Progressives love to rant and whine about America’s shrinking middle class. This is actually quite logical since they’re focus has always been to garner votes from the proletariat and their methodology has always been to vilify the bourgeoisie.

There is, however, a reason why these goals and techniques consistently fail to work in America. America’s middle class, despite Leftist interference, is shrinking more due to upward mobility than downward spiraling.

The Shrinking Middle Class

In the 44 years leading up to 2015 the percentage of adults in the middle class has shrunk from 61% to 50%, a drop of 18%. However, during the same period the percentage of adult Americans who are in the upper middle and highest echelons has risen a combined 7%, whereas the numbers in the lowest class have risen only 4%.

It seems to me that America needs to reject and cast off the Liberals’ and Progressives’ shibboleth of the “shrinking middle class” rather than allowing them to play games with people’s lives and livelihoods.

And, my fellow Americans, remember that the only difference between Bernopoly and Hillary Clinton’s game is that Hillary’s is slower and she owns the bank.

Asian Grading System

There’s a reason why Asians tend as a whole to excel in America and outperform all other demographics. It’s the same reason as why so many other minorities, especially the Blacks, hate them with a sick passion. It’s also the very same reason that, in the name of diversity – and maintaining “Legacy” enrollmentacademia is prejudiced against them.

Yes, the picture above is meant to be humor…but it’s humor grounded, as is all the best humor, in social commentary about real situations, behaviors, and attitudes.

  • A = Average
  • B = Below Average
  • C = Can’t Have Dinner
  • D = Don’t Come Home
  • F = Find A New Family

This is not too far off the mark from how Asian parents, by and large, deal with their children’s education and success therein. They expect diligence, responsibility, and a strong work ethic, demand such things from their children, and aren’t afraid of using discipline to get them.

Yep! The Asian Grading System, it’s the reason why Asian, irrespective of the socioeconomic strata they come from and despite sometimes massive cultural and linguistic barriers, tend to succeed and outperform, as a group, others in America.
