The 09/01/13 Joy Jar

1 Sep

As folk reflect on what Labor Day means and even what “middle class” means or who is “middle class,” there are certain values that define the “middle class.” See, Middle Class Values Do Differ From the Rich — My Answer to Senator Kyl http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-abrams/jon-kyl-middle-class-_b_1697164.html and The State of America’s Middle Class in Eight Charts http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/business-economy-financial-crisis/two-american-families/the-state-of-americas-middle-class-in-eight-charts/ Today’s deposit into the “Joy Jar’ is middle class values.

I have to live for others and not for myself: that’s middle-class morality.
George Bernard Shaw

I worry a lot about taking care of my dependents, all those perfectly ordinary middle-class preoccupations.
Orson Welles

“The vast majority of Americans, at all coordinates of the economic spectrum, consider themselves middle class; this is a deeply ingrained, distinctly American cognitive dissonance.”
Ellen Cushing

Morality is only for the middle class, sweet. The lower class can’t afford it, and the upper classes have entirely too much leisure time to fill.
Lisa Kleypas

Upper classes are a nation’s past; the middle class is its future.
Ayn Rand

Right now, America’s middle class is struggling to meet their basic needs.
Ruben Hinojosa

“A smaller government reflecting the needs of the middle class and poor is superior to a big government reflecting the needs of the privileged and powerful.”
Robert Reich

The most perfect political community is one in which the middle class is in control, and outnumbers both of the other classes.
Aristotle
