Damn you're the biggest asshole I've ever seen. You don't even have to try, it just comes out.

You don't discuss, you just call names and throw stuff to see what sticks.

I did just call you an asshole, because you are, but prior to that, calling out your douchebaggery is not calling you a name. ...and lol at you calling me smug, since you're the living definition of smug.

Literally all you have is insults and childish antics.

Since you brought it up, what's your degree Mr High-and-mighty? I didn't think they gave those out in middle school.

BTW, since your memory is apparently faulty, you're the one who brought estate taxes into this discussion about my mooching uncle.

as I try to ignore the insults, I think that there are some definitions of working class in which a business owner could still be part of the working class, but I can't find any way in which a business owner worth millions would be part of the working class - how are they not the middle class?

or are some of you guys just using working class to mean someone who uh works for a living or something?

you whine because i call you, a fuging idiot, "a fuging idiot," but somehow it's ok for you to call names because:

and btw i have a bachelor's and a master's in separate social sciences (you can probably guess which ones if you have any formal education in either field, which you clearly do not), which is why you often see me engaged in topics relating to the two. so anyway why exactly do you feel so qualified to pop into threads and say "nuh uh liebral," oftentimes blatantly contradicting academic literature or, in this case, even the actual accepted meaning of a class (the working class)

never said otherwise. i am in fact the one who mentioned estate taxes, this is correct. however, you are the one who (hilariously) suggested that working class people are subject to the estate tax. this is demonstrably false.

Cantrell is just wrong and he can't admit it. He talks about things that his teachers obviously haven't covered yet. Just because you're worth $5 million (just using his #), doesn't mean you've accumulated your wealth on "the backs of others".

For example, i know a man who is a surveyor... He worked for years as a field surveyor and eventually opened his own firm. He built it up to a nice but not large company. In the course of his work, he was able tto acquire 80 acres of land along with a partner in Brunswick County in the early 90s before the development boom. He partially developed the land, and then sold it in 2006 for almost $10 million at the height of the development boom and high prices in real estate in this area.

He was probably making less than most professionals as a surveyor but had great success in real estate.

He was a working class guy who made the right decisions at the right time.

But I guess guys like that don't count to Mr. Cantrell. I habe several other examples too... But I don't have the right degree so I don't know what I'm talking about...

yes this is exactly what he's doing lol

Working class (or lower class, labouring class, sometimes proletariat) is a term used in the social sciences and in ordinary conversation to describe those employed in lower tier jobs (as measured by skill, education and lower incomes), often extending to those in unemployment or otherwise possessing below-average incomes. Working classes are mainly found in industrialized economies and in urban areas of non-industrialized economies.

oh look you STILL don't know what the working class is. here

and btw it's not about having "the right degree," it's about understanding the subject matter. you have no understanding, yet feel qualified to poo up thread after thread after thread with your dumb bullshit. you definitely don't have to have a degree to know the things you could learn in college, but it's obvious that you've never cracked a book on the bulk of these subjects either for a class or for leisure (see: your fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to be "working class").

He was a working class guy who made the right decisions at the right time.

bolded what was important... at one point he may have been but he clearly did well for himself and advanced his class... that is good, nothing wrong with that, but let's be real: he was not a working class person his entire time working.

opening his own firm, buying that kind of land - these are indications he was financially well off enough to be considered in the middle class. obv., without knowing the guy, I can't comment, but as soon as he made $10 mill even if he had somehow miraculously done all of that on low income before, he couldn't possibly be considered low income past that point.

even if he deposited his wealth in a bank account and never touched it, I would have trouble considering him to be truly in the working class, as opposed to an eccentric rich person. :P

edit: also I am assuming a surveyor is in fact a working class job, I have no idea what education requirements etc it requires... heh.
