    I encourage you to watch the 6 minute video completely and keep an open mind.

    I do understand this topic has been discussed thoroughly already, but I think it is interesting how it samples the perception of the issue by the American people.

    No, none of the 'Conservatives' are going to comment on it, because it shows how great the perception of both liberals and conservatives of the distribution of wealth strays from the reality. It is a sad comment on the state of this nation that so much of it's wealth is owned by so few.

    What is truly bothersome is that so many actually believe this is good for the economy and the country.

    This video is not true as of the year 2008 & later.
    George Dubya had already fucked the upper 10% out of our money before he left office in the housing market crash. (Margin Call)
    Then here comes Obama with his bailouts to the Wealthy People's banks, thus letting us know we are his bitch.
    As the Wealthy no longer have any liquid cash, we only have good credit to get government loans as the American Federal Government has hidden all the liquid cash deep within their dummy corporations.
    Eventually our credit lines will run out as we are unable to earn a profit the way things are now.
    When our credit lines run out, we wealthy people will be unable to take more loans to make our minimum payments, our government loans will be called in, and when we CAN'T pay them, the government doesn't just put a tincy-tiny blemish on our credit report .......... NO ........ on a 2 billion dollar credit line they send a HIT SQUAD of Federal Agents to do the following:

    1. They fly a helicopter to where you are.
    2. They place you under arrest.
    3. The wealthy person boards the helicopter with the Federal Agents.
    4. The Federal Agents then ask the wealthy person "where's the money"
    5. The wealthy person says "I don't have anything, I'm broke"
    6. The Federal Agents then ask "do you have the means to pay your debt"
    7. The wealthy person says "Um ....... No"
    8. The Federal Agents then through the wealthy person out of the helicopter and he falls to his death.

    This is why we need to take away the guns, get the sheeple moved to the FEMA camps and working in the GULAG's before November of THIS YEAR or the wealthy are dead, the wealthy people's families will become normal everyday sheeple and WORK & go to public schools.

    So please ......... just hurry up and give up the guns.

    You are not owed 'wealth equality' in a free society.. you have the freedom to fail that goes hand in hand with the freedom to succeed...

    So when you or anyone else whines that person A has it so easy because their daddy left them $30MIL or that person B can afford more luxuries than average because they earn $2M a year in a job you consider 'not hard', too bad too sad
