The gap grows because Obama is destroying the Middle Class.
Same thing happened in Argentina before it collapsed.

Blame the leaders....not the people with means.

Right.

Before Obama, the middle class was living the dream.

What fucking planet are you from?

More class warfare yay.

Okay, I get that the distribution of wealth in the country is skewed heavily in favor of the wealthy. And I get that the authors of that video think that this is a bad thing (else why the lugubrious/menacing music).

Here's the fundamental question, however: Does a skewed distribution of wealth make me any less of a person or make my life any less worth living?

I would submit that, so long as I can supply myself with the necessities of life and some quantum of the things that I might not need but want, then, no, it does not.

Bill Gates has many, many times more money than I have. Does it make him happier than I am? More of a person than I am? Does it have any real impact on me whatsoever? Not really.

Leftist thinkers like to posit that leftists are more concerned with the interests of the collective, the arts, learning, caring for others and that sort of thing; and that the right/republicans/conservatives are simply money grubbing, shallow greed heads. It has always stuck me as ironic, then, that those on the left spend so much of their time jealously pondering other people's money and figuring ways to classify its accumulation as a social ill and then how to get their hands on it.

...and the longer Obama dries up the Middle class,
which was always traditionally the "cushion" for the USA economically the more you will only see THE HAVES versus THE HAVE NOTS.


...and that is EXACTLY what they are trying to do....polarize the USA.
...divide and conquer.

Spoken like a true fool. Deflecting the problem from the real perps and placing it on the President's shoulders. This has been going on for a very long time, exponentially increasing in the 80's. Yeah, blame it on the black guy, the Democrat.

The thing that most people don't understand about "wealth distribution" is that there is no set amount of wealth or money. Rich people being rich has ZERO affect on your ability to get rich and have money too. There is no set amount of money that the rich are somehow hoarding and preventing you from getting


Just because some guy has a trillion dollars does not mean he is preventing YOU from having ANYTHING.

Re: Video Showing the Huge Gap Between Super Rich and Everyone Else Goes Viral
This also proves that poor and mid class Americans are slaves. The future for each of us is determined by the decisions of an unelected Federal Reserve Banking Corp. They are owned and controlled by the top 1%. They own the money therefore they own you. They determine the value of your money, which is not true wealth. The money we use is only a tool that is used to purchase items from companies and corporations that are owned by the people who determine the value of that tool. They can manipulate the people in so many ways with the system that we have to use that there is no doubt that we are slaves.

There are still to many people in America who are ignorant to this, and when told about it, they go blank. This is a problem. The education system put in place by the puppet leaders has succeeded in the plan of the elites. That plan is dumbing, and it worked and continues to work. Even after kids have left the school system they are continually dumbed by a different info delivery system, Mass Media.

We that are awake face a huge struggle even before the enormous struggle. The huge one is shaking up the sleepy so that they see how the truth is far away from the lies they've been told, that alone is a massive task. The enormous one is changing the system or maybe at least surviving what may come from the change.

The struggle is within.
In the end.... no one gets out alive.

Yes, people are waking up. I live a very comfortable life, have many advantages, know many other wealthy people. Frankly we mostly hang out together cause we have access to the same things. Money tends to hang with money.

yet I can tell you that this 1% is so wealthy, so in control that most of us are absolutely ignorant to the difference. Realize that it takes 200 2%ers to equal 1 1%er. its beyond ridiculousness. This absolute control is ending. When I see someone here cheering this on, that person, for me, looses credibility because they offer blind allegiance to someone that really would rather see them dead than care.

Re: Video Showing the Huge Gap Between Super Rich and Everyone Else Goes Viral
Hmmmm - whilst I totally agree that the CEO's etc have rigged the game so they get obscene rewards for being members of an elite club.

Wealth distribution is even more skewed in most of the rest of the world and historically as well.

The wealth of a citizen lies not just their bank account balance - but access to the communal infrastructures - roads hospitals, educational opportunities, internet, media, parks etc etc. In that sense we are all inconceivably wealthier than any previous generations.

The fact remains that freemarket capitalism has lifted more people from poverty, disease, ignorance etc than any other system - the average person lives like the wealthy elites of centuries past.
