Over the past 30 years, virtually all the benefit of U.S. economic growth has gone to the richest 1 percent of Americans. Effective tax rates for the very rich are at historic lows and many of the most profitable corporations pay no taxes at all.

Good information. But with republcians beholding to their paymasters, it's unlikely they will try to do anything positive for America. Look what they are doing right now with the debt ceiling.......holding the country hostage.

There have always been the 'have and have nots' - what makes this time so outrageous is HUGE imbalance. We have grow used to a "middle class" life style one that encourages us to think that one day---if we eat all of our peas we too will be rich. Silly, but that is what feeds the tea party.

This planet earth was created by God to share equally in all the wealth & resources upon it for all living beings! However as it stand this is not the case & getting even worst as each minute passes by! When do we STOP the EVIL Government backed by GREEDY few Elites & Corrupt Corps. to continue this MURDEROUS crime upon us all & our environment! Have we had enough & will we all stand together as ONE force. Wars & killing our brothers & sisters in foreign countries to benefit who, but the ones funding this crime upon humanity! Irrelevant where we are on this planet, we are all ONE & all connected! They will continually find schemes to rip away our last rights & freedom. The wealth belongs to all of us & time we end this INSANITY! We need ETHICAL Government & leaders to represent US, all of US, YES, the time is NOW! Thanks Michael.

Thanks Michael...It just makes me sick, that they have so little regard, for the vast majority of people in this Country...I just wish I could get all these Republicans and Tea Baggers, in the same room, and tell them to their faces, to kiss my Irish Ass, and to Go F**k themselves, it may not accomplish anything, but it damn sure would make me feel better...lol :)

The debt of this country is a result of the “greed addicted” of the super rich, unable to satisfy their genetically inherited addiction anymore then a heroine, chemically addict, living in a cardboard box in any metropolitan ally USA can overcome theirs. The differance, they’re born psychopathically sick mentally, spiritually, and there is no cure psychiatry has to offer, other then death. Unlike the heroine addict who has a chance if given the opportunity and the support. Support systems we can not afford because we’re forced to support the greed addicted with our tax money instead of serving and helping humanity.

Ah, to have a President like Hoover again...What's happened to this country since then? Greed, ignorance, and apathy are just digging us deeper and deeper...

Guess it's a matter of "kill off" the working populace in the U.S.A. and then their "new slaves" will be the WORLD population.

I just cannot get past this particular group mentality. It's not unlike a brain washed cult following. R not the hometown repugs in the same boat as the rest of us? Do they not lose jobs? Do they not lose homes? Do they not sacrifice to make ends meet? Do they not realize that realipugs are not representing them, but only protecting the rich???

Thank you for the good article Michael. You had left this quote on your write up sent to friends.
"Inch by inch, mile after mile Arlo Guthrie says that he is told from somewhere that we are getting to Mankind's Dreams." I hope so, I certainly hope so, doesn't look too good right now.

Murdoch and his hate-machine "journalism" is why those making under $250,000 a year vote against themselves. Those people hate so much, and FOX and such news sources feed that rage, then their badly chosen votes end up making them even more hate-filled because they are totally clueless about what is really going on and that those votes are going against them----its the most diabolically created and inspired hate machine,

"Effective tax rates for the very rich are at historic lows and many of the most profitable corporations pay no taxes at all" - amazes me how the US of A got to this level; you are so many millions, why on earth can you not reverse this 'lethal' decline of the beautiful American people??

Thanks for the post, Michael. I wish President Obama would read this online article and PDF and be inspired by it. Unfortunately, he is being controlled just like the rest of our public officials in Washington. Maybe we just have to experience a complete, economic meltdown and collapse in order to bring about these changes? I have shared this article with others.
