The pundits on the supposed news channels keep stating that the Democrats need to stop claiming the Republicans are waging war on the middle class. I saw it again just this weekend on CNN. I guess CNN chose to ignore today’s news. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/states-federal-government-reduce-length-jobless-benefits-144413734.html?ugccmtnav=v1%2Fcomments%2Fcontext%2Fa8aa4280-86ad-3ccf-80ab-c9d12c74e25d%2Fcomments%3Fcount%3D20%26sortBy%3DhighestRated%26isNext%3Dtrue%26offset%3D20%26pageNumber%3D1 That’s right.

If you have an office job, you know what that means when it comes to lunch. Most days you cannot go out, so you are either bringing a…
