    The dumb asses here who are certainly "left out" in that wealth curve...still suck up against th dems just out of pure ignorance, even though that makes them poorer. I can not figure that out. Stupid is the only word I can attatch to it. sid

    They're keeping those taxes down on that top bracket so that when they hit the lotto, or win the slip and fall lawsuit against Wal-Mart, they'll be in better shape!

    Quite the plan, LOL!

    "That’s the Rentier Agenda, then — low tax rates on unearned income flowing to passive investors, replacing public utilities with private toll-charging monopolies, and pursuing policies that deter inflation, even at the risk of prolonged, mass unemployment and idle factories. It is no exaggeration to say that the private sector rentiers are not only the real “moochers” and the real “takers” but also are the greatest threat to productive industrial capitalism, in the United States and the world."

    There is a three art series on www.Salon.com about the Myth Robme's of the world, and how they're hurting the country. part two is up right now, with a link to part one included in it.

    It's quite thorough and very interesting.

    Thanks for this one friend, it's excellent!

    Who rules America?

    Wealth, Income, and Power

    by Professor G. William Domhoff, Sociology Department, University of California at Santa Cruz


    This document presents details on the wealth and income distributions in the United States, and explains how we use these two distributions as power indicators.
    Some of the information may come as a surprise to many people. In fact, I know it will be a surprise and then some, because of a recent study (Norton & Ariely, 2010) showing that most Americans (high income or low income, female or male, young or old, Republican or Democrat) have no idea just how concentrated the wealth distribution actually is.
