how many of these alleged "working class"

a second generation italian american, i can personally
attest. we're not born to be factory workers, bankers, or members of a class. were born to be free thinking independent human beings. and this country will continue to thrive only if its people continue to raise the bar, challenge the status quo, and INNOVATE . america is beautiful to me. my father, the first of his family to be born here, the first to study in a university, became an attorney. the son of IMMIGRANTS! it was because of this country and the liberties provided herein. if only its native children could see the opportunity, like all the immigrants dying to flock here everyday. you see, they understand.
