the lumpkin bourgeoisie

The poor people in this country are about to catch it again.

(T)he sequestration cuts, as they are called, still contain billions of dollars in mandatory budget reductions in programs that help low-income Americans, including one that gives vouchers for housing to the poor and disabled and another that provides fortified baby formula to the children of poor women.

(Ann Lowry in the NY Times this morning.)

That's what they get for being poor. i mean, a lot of these people don't even work; they need to be punished for profiting nothing. What do they want? A roof over their heads?

God help the poor in the USA. Nobody else will.

Well, if poor people are depending on government, they've got a very frail reed to lean on at this point.

You know, I'm hanging out here among the lumpkin bourgeoisie in Point Utopia, while just a very few miles up the road is a community of working class and poors, and I see the poors whenever I go out. Just looking at them you can tell that a lot of them, probably a majority, have some kind of debilitating mental problem, or emotional problem, or are to put it bluntly, arrested development cases.

My point is that these are people who can't possibly 100 per cent take care of themselves. So what does John Boehner suggest we do with them? Soylent Green?
