WE ARE WINNING!

The egregious Howard Schultz now says he thinks it is wrong to call him a billionaire.  He says we should call him and others like him "persons of means."  WE ARE WINNING.

Why doesn't he just spell it out? He's a person of means of production.

If one is as wealthy as he is one would think he could buy good advice. He wants to represent the Independent voter, the people of the mythical middle. Party identification numbers are somewhat fluid, but right now self identified independents are 39% of the electorate, Republicans are at 25%, and Democrats are at 34%. Thirteen percent of independents reliably lean Republican and 18% lean Democrat.
The remaining 8% are swing voters and most swung to Trump.

Systematic political misunderstanding about the mythical middle is played out in the constant meme that "both parties have moved to the extremes." That is also a provable untruth, but the line that we should all just come together for the common good has amazing persistence.
