dismissive liberals to white workers: drop dead

oh the righteous indignation and guffawing by the right wing creeps towards this silly clinton mccain idea of a gas tax holiday...in this merriment are many so called progressives who sniff about how insignificant this measly amount of money is, how its a ruse, oh, yes, easy to mock and minimalize, which is what many of you progressives here are doing, the struggling blue collar workers, as a whole.
i recognize that many young working class peeps are for obama, as is my son, who lives on his own and he and his girlfriend are finding it tough nowadays...but he does yearn for change, i can understand that, and him being my spawn, well, i expect him to have a mind of his own, and he does....but most blue collar middle aged voters are not so sold on this change being offered.
while it might not be fiscally tidy, while it might be sneered at by folks who drive tanks posing as highway motor vehicles, drinking $5 coffee, the impact of gas, food, medical costs are killing lower class families.
i do not consider myself to be in the "lower class" particularly, i grew up on a tiny plot of earth as a farm boy, as backwards as possible, but through education and some luck i find myself living comfortably, not thrilled with my retirement prospects, i would love to have more money, but have some, more than most of my fellow citizens, but i am not that far removed from farms, small town life, hand to mouth existence, scraping by, growing your own food...and while it may be pandering to those who can afford to sneer, there are many people who hear and see who is mocking their plight, where a little less money at the pump sounds awful damn good, cause real wages are stagnant or actually dropping, so mock on elitists, while the proposal might suit your funny bone, those on the bottom might at least take pleasure that somebody, somebody, pay attention to them for a little while, and cease the endless facination with those well off and insulated from real life.
perhaps its just that i am particularly agitated this am by the phoney video smearing more clinton folks as mindless haters and thugs, the mickey kantor man on the grassy knoll video clip, such vileness from those promising change...if this is your idea of change, please keep it, i have a real life, a real son struggling to make it, even as i look at retiring to some comfort...but my heart is still with the working man...mock him at your own peril smug elitists, those who would concoct race lies...you may be writing the epitaph of the november election, when we get four more years of war, because of the idiocyntric behavior of a bunch of over priviledged elitists, well, we will know who to blame, at any rate, along with thanks for making racism the daily double of the democratic campaign..what a god awful mess
