This is no shock if you think about it (not that anyone from a newspaper would think about anything)
Those who are “rich enough” to have ensconced themselves in a bubble and who are not especially subject to the worries over the economy are doing fine. This is what people do, they anesthetize themselves, when possible. No criticism, really, some use illegal drugs, some use doodads, some use their families, some use activities they enjoy.
Those who have to work for their living hour by hour for deteriorating wages and view their future as increasingly uncertain as they see their rights decreased, their incomes threatened, the government increasingly intruding upon their freedoms and ability to make a living by endless executive orders and diktats, those people are worried. They might not be, if they viewed the sacrifice of and intrusion upon their freedoms as buying some kind of safety or security, but the longer this farce of a president and admin go, the more and more incompetent they appear. I see the disapproval of this regime as utterly natural. It is the drunken, obsequious worship of these turdballs that seems completely synthetic, an act, a hallucination.
The most angry at the government are the lower middle class. The upper middle class to the uber rich are somewhat ‘feeling’ the burden of higher gas prices and food costs, but can cushion it without much difference in lifestyle.
The lower class don’t feel it as they still live in section 8 housing and get food stamps and bus passes.
The lower middle class are the ones struggling to hoping and praying they make enough to buy food for the week and gas to get to work. God forbid something unexpected happens or a cut in hours, etc...
