The divide between the two social classes are quite alarming and it seems to only keep widening as the years pass by. Noticed I said the two social classes. This is because the distinction between the middle class and poor is increasingly becoming blurred and only seems to be a short while before there is only the wealthy and the poor.

2012

The year of 2012 seemed to be a year that had a lot of great promise but sharply fell flat in delivering any generous returns on such promises.
