#1 I agree, and Obamacare is one of the financial/political vehicles that will bring on the "new poor" of the middle class.

#3 But it's not a cloud, it's a crèche.

Oh, and it can only be funded if more people decide they want to be adults, despite it being against their interests....

#4 Clouds, in the end, are just vapour. And what happens when you are living 'in the cloud' and the cloud goes away?

Because eventually everyone except the elite will be 'living in the cloud' because that is all they have left. And who will be providing the cloud anymore? Not the elite. Not the middle class - there won't be a middle class. Eventually it will simply fade away like vapor tends to do.

#5 As Kathy Shaidle says, "The poor are the rich Jesus warned you about."

#6 there won't be a middle class

There isn't one now. Middle class people traditionally employed someone to help around the home full time.

Impossible with current employment costs created by government taxation and regulation.

Most people are in reality comfortable working-class and shirking classes, and the rent-seeking classes at the other end.

#7 Look at India or Bangladesh and you will have the USA of tomorrow....Zero Middle Class, a microscopic elite/quasi royalty, and the vast mobs of the "unwashed" ( thats us )
