    You might be surprised just how precarious the precipice is we're teetering on.

    Are you sure about that? The assumption of America's invincibility is, IMO, one of the reasons that we find ourselves in such a mess. So many people assume that this nation will always survive unscathed and fundamentally unchanged so they feel they don't have to take a stand or be proactive in preserving the USA. The Romans though their empire invincible as well.

    Yes, we are still very close to the situation of 1929.

    Another legacy of President George W. Bush: massive income inequality -- DailyFinance


    Another legacy of President George W. Bush: massive income inequality

    George W. Bush left so many memorable things in his wake. Sure, there were those two wars. And then there's that legacy of white-hot hate wielded by wacky multimillionaire talking heads. However, for a legacy that keeps on giving, W's greatest leave-behind is a level of income inequality that outpaces even that of the Roaring '20s that led to the Great Depression.

    In 2007, the top .001 percent of American earners took home 6 percent of total U.S. wages -- about twice the figure for 2000, notes Emmanuel Saez, an economics professor at University of California–Berkeley. Saez also found that the top 10 percent of American earners pulled in 49.7 percent of total wages: a level "higher than any other year since 1917 and even surpasses 1928."
