Middle class should never be inferred as second class

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

Having watched Mr. Obama many times on various news channels, he is taking the term “Middle Class” to a level that makes me uncomfortable, really uncomfortable. He seems to use the term to divide this country. He seems to be basing “middle” as second class. Not as intended or accepted by most American by just how much we earn annually.

I know of some “upper” or first class in his eyes that are total scum bags from the viewpoint of some such as the likes of Bernie Madoff, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, just to name a few. The only second class are those in prison and those not caught yet. Maybe those are further down the flag pole. I know of no second class people that work for a living, or have earned a retirement from doing so.

My feelings towards the man, Mr. Obama, are only to his policy, not anything else. He looks like he is a good dad.

We base our trust on the most basic part of our system and Constitution on our trust in our ability to cast our vote, and have it go to the right person, and be counted honestly. I do not like SEIU in charge of programming the voting machines, or having anything to do with my vote. I called the County Registrar of Voters myself and asked if there were any people that were SEIU members working on counting the votes. If you want to know you can call him yourself. If you are not stunned, I will eat my hat.

Looking at the 2,000-plus page health care bill is like Yul Brynner in the classic movie Ten Commandments where he said... “Let be written, let it be done.”
