    "Yes, when greedy mega rich Pubs are controlling the gov't for their own selfish ends. But the teachers, cops, and firemen who are the first pub cuts certainly are part of the 99%"...Pub dupes!

    I think Rockwell forgets that the U.S. is in the company of third world countries when it comes to income equality.

    I think you forget that our poor and middle classes are better off in many cases than the rich of those third world countries.

    Of course, I'm sure the 1% in Argentina and Iran (both in the same range as the U.S.) are having a worse go than our middle and poor classes. Get real.

    the U.S. also has another thing in common with those 3rd world countries: A bloated, horribly expensive dictatorial central gubmint.

    Coincidence?...I think not.

    so? does that change the truth of what he said?

    we've got worse income disparity than tunisia.

    and you and the people at mises are just fine with that

    you live in a world of magical thinking.
