barry - its ALWAYS directed at specific people, or at least specific classes of people. Remember: "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others." Who will be the winners if the class warfare agenda succeeds? Will it be "the poor and oppressed"? No way! It never is. The winners would be a particular subset of the wealthiest and most powerful. That's the way it always is and always will be. People who work hard at running real companies with real products that expand and grow and employ more people and sometimes even improve people's lives (wholesome food, clean water, effective medicine, cheap transport and communications) and make six and seven-figure incomes in the process will be the big losers. The winners will be those who contribute nothing to society other than image, influence, and entertainment (think sports, politics, media, and the like) and pull down eight-figure incomes doing so. The biggest winners will be those with the nine-figure incomes.

Yes Pebear, but are any of these groups trying actively to rob you, capture you, torture you, or kill you? Learn the difference between real persecution and being called a bad name every once in a while. This way you won't be trivializing the suffering of folks who really are living under persecution.
Hey - Hebrew, Arabic, whatever . . . Some folks are reluctant to let facts color their thinking.
Old joke . . . and still very funny and very insightful.
Great suggestion. I think I'll join today. Since my granddaughter (who doesn't have her driver's license yet) carries an AARP card, do think perhaps AARP is just possibly about something other than being an advocate for real seniors?

What money?
Let me know if you find any with some credibility, and I'll be right there behind you. Rare though to find one that is truly independent and not a crackpot. Pity.
