The Real, Really Depressing US Economic Picture

A Teatard recently tried to explain to me why it was important that we have economic royalty in the US. I had him watch this video, but the math completely evaded him. The multiple lines of stacked wealth for the 1% were beyond his comprehension and capacity and he kept trying to explain that the off-the-chart portion of the display meant a wide group of people were the richest 1%. I guess this is consistent with the fact that more than 20% of the US public believe that they are among the wealthiest 1%. We are a nation of morons, for a fact.



I agree that it's an incomprehensible situation. But the incomprehensible part is that we tolerate it, not that our system has become this perverted.

    Name a Representative or Senator that isn't a member of the 1%. Quick! Think of just one!
