LMAO. Judging class by income is the definition of petit-bourgeois.

lol, nice comeback. I'm speaking in an economic sense and you know that. There are other components of "class," but this is most often the defining one in every sitution.

No, it's really not. Maybe I'm too "British", but class and economic stratum rarely intersect. Is Donald Trump upper class, for example? I don't think so.

Yeah, BB is not the same in my book as he was when he came on.  If he hadn't "adjusted" I would have just stopped reading his posts like I have with other posters.  I just don't like the style and I think he takes it to the extreme.  I didn't like it about Stan, but I think he more frequently departed from it to make a J type argument.  If BB has actually done this, I have not seen it. I may have incorrectly conveyed that he is not making an argument.  I think he is making arguments, perhaps I think that more than others think that.  I just think his arguments are in disguise (perhaps as a defense to keep himself from ending up in a situation like he was in when he first showed up).  I wish they weren't.  But then again I wish when someone said something stupid they could just say "my bad, dog" and that would be it, but apparantly that also is not the case.

here.

Well, SC will have to spell it out, but seems obvious enough to me. Extreme moderation is still extreme, no?

Yeah, me.

You quoted the wrong post. Sheesh, n00b.

The way that you present "your" political stance, not your nice guy act.

Oh I agree with you completely as far as Britain in concerned. Class means everything there, whereas in the U.S. "class" doesn't really exist outside of the economic sense. We're pretty much classless compared to Western Europe.

Bloody Chavs.

Not at all true. That's a myth, and I'm not sure why people continue to believe it despite what they know from their own common sense and common knowledge. Upper West side is not Upper East Side; Mainline outside Philly is not Pittsburgh; Ole Miss isn't Mississippi State; Jack and Jill isn't inner Detroit. People don't move up or down the class system here any faster than they do in Europe.

You're relying on those a bit to much these days.

Sure they do. We do have class differences, but they are not significant (and should thus not be termed "class") enough to determine much of anything these days.

Yeah, me.

Why, then, does redneck culture (i.e. class) irritate you?
