    Sorry, I am not Abel to comment on Cain and the 999 plan. :laugh:

    For me, 999 is the number I ring for the emergency services (Fire, ambulance, police, coastguard.)

    Under 999 the top 1% will/must increase their cut of the economic pie.

    The top now owns 90% if everything in the US. Answer me this: When the top 1% owns 99% of everything in the US exactly why will they need or want a "middle class?" If they own everything, why will they care if anyone has a job except for those who are needed to serve the 1%?

    YES! And that is the intent - to transfer assets from the working class to the 1%.

    On the other hand "middle class" is a meaningless term because of the way it is determined. Middle class is generally defined as 15 or 20 percentile either side of median income. Under this definition the median class in ancient Rome and Greece were slaves.

    The median voter <G> doesn't understand this because of the dumbing down of the public school system. The median voter doesn't understand the significance between median and mean (average). Neither does the average voter.

    Why? Because they are the same number. You tell me why I conclude this. <G>
