the rich versus the middle class

My friend Mike posted this and I wanted his words to be heard :

"I am a public employee I am not the problem. Teachers, police officers, paramedics, firefighters, road workers etc. are NOT the enemy. If you’re jealous of our benefits, FIGHT FOR YOUR OWN!, not against ours. T
he rich created this crisis are pitting middle class families against each other. We live here, pay taxes, work hard and try to support our families too. If you're a public employee please copy and re-post."

I have worked in a union both for public and private employers and they are the last stand against turning the United States from becoming a third world nation.

It is the rich in this country are the REAL enemy.

goodbye San Francisco...

It's been a learning experience. The city itself is a great place, but not for everyone. However it will always have a special meaning to me.

Had it not been for my friends Domenic and his partner Joe who were there from the beginning, and the friends that I made along the way AND made a hard effort to know me : John W., Eddy G., Deco, Genaro & Brian, Gregg, Jay, Luis, Mauricio, Mike L., Nephy, Peter, Eric, Justin H, Ken, Erwin, & Will, I would have left very bitter. Those guys have shown me what it means to never lose sight of what's important and who really cares.

I thank You.

You made SF a great place.
