Sanders: "climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism"

I'm guessing he's going to be asked to expound on this view at the next debate.

Will he suggest installing solar panels, buying electric vehicles, and car pooling to fight terrorism?

Momentum is an advantage all by itself

People like to back winners.

If people think their vote will be "wasted" they may just stay at home. On the other hand, people like to be part of the winner team so they will go out and vote.

difference between upper class and rich

since my previous thread was so well received...

what I consider upper class: can live off your own investment, able to open a private banking account (assets of at least $5 million), have your own relaionship manager you can call.

the truly rich though have their own family office (if you have to ask what this is, you can't afford it).

the truly truly rich have their own foundations.

so that's why I support Clinton's proposal not to raise taxes on the middle class. because there are people with much more assets who can afford to pay more first. Sanders on the other hand wants to raise taxes on the middle class. i just wish he would discuss his proposal more during the debate so everyone is aware of this.

Middle class is when you have to go to work

Upper class is when you can live off your investments and you don't have to work (you can choose to).

In some cities, $250k is hardly upper class. After taxes, you're left with about $150k.

Assuming mortgage or rental at $4 - 5k a month, that's easily another $50k gone.

With a couple of kids in private school ($20k / year), nanny, housekeeper, groceries, vacations, car, clothes, dining, etc. you're barely breaking even.
