The ruling class

How much do you spend on "household employees"? The McCains spent $273,000 last year. And don't be fooled by all that talk about how McCain doesn't actually own "houses," he owns "condos." Maybe technically. But one of them is 6,600 square feet. That's four times bigger than the house that I live in.

There are 744,000 homeless people in the United States. That's not house-less people, of whom there are millions and millions, several hundred thousand more every month, but home-less people, meaning they not only don't own or rent a house, they don't own or rent an apartment, a condo, or even a hotel room.
