The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy

This is an important follow on to the Codevilla piece below. Again, many of you have read this. For some it is just another spot on the internet where you can find it. Please pass it along.

Gonzalo Lira: The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy. A sample:

However, three months later, out of the blue, they got a letter from their bank, Wells Fargo: It said that, after further review, Brian and Ilsa had in fact not qualified for HAMP. Therefore, their mortgage would go back to the old rate. Not only that, they now owed the difference for the three months when they had paid the lowered mortgage—and to add insult to injury, they were assessed a “penalty for non-payment”.

Really go read the whole thing. And all of the addenda.

I’ve saved the posts here in a small effort to make certain this story stays alive.

The Ruling Class 

They vote Democrat more consistently than those who live on any of America’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Streets.

Angelo M. Codevilla

This is an important essay. I’ve posted a .pdf here. It is my small part to make sure this stays available. Many of you have read this. Please pass the link along to your friends.

NY lawmaker: Parents should take parenting classes

Fucking crazy talk:

If parents don’t go, 6th graders won’t move onto 7th grade.

Diane Lane to play Hillary

I may have found the first thing with Diane Lane that I won’t be able to watch.

One night I came home late from work and saw that my wife was watching Under the Tuscan Sun. I just sat down and started watching it with her. She remarked that she was surprised that I would watch such a movie. I replied, “It has Diane Lane in it. I can watch Diane Lane read the newspaper for two hours.”

I have my doubts about being able to watch Diane Lane play Hillary Clinton. Especially since the miniseries will likely be nothing more than campaign fluff (it is going to be on NBC) It won’t be a realistic look at the sorts of scummy people that are our nation’s political class.

We do not have a government of serious people…

If Anthony Weiner can become mayor of NYC. A couple of links for your enjoyment.

NYTimes Pulls Their Weiner Story

If this sort of thing puzzles you (how this guy could be a serious contender for mayor) you’ll find the articles will only add to your befuddlement. It is amazing to me how some people have no sense of shame.
