Even if these top 5 facts were true, it would be irrelevant.
The problem is SPENDING, not that taxes aren't high enough.

Zaid Jilani is Senior Reporter/Blogger for and The Progress Report at American Progress. Zaid grew up in Kennesaw, Georgia, and holds a B.A. in international affairs with a minor in Arabic from the University of Georgia. Prior to joining ThinkProgress, Zaid interned for Just Foreign Policy and was a weekly columnist at The Red & Black, University of Georgia’s official student newspaper. He is a co-founder of Stand Up Magazine, a co-editor at the Georgia-based blog Georgia Liberal and on staff at BasedonBooks, the first website ever dedicated to movie reviews of book adaptations.

Zaid Jilani: loose cannon or meme generator?

@ThinkProgress employee Zaid Jilani indulges in ugly speculation on Twitter. Should Zaid be more careful with what is written under a Twitter account connected to Think Progress? Is Zaid trying to generate a meme on behalf of OBL? Does this kind of rank speculation undermine Zaid’s trustworthiness as a reporter and blogger for Think Progress?

Pentagon official Monday said OBL “was firing behind her” [the human shield]. Now it turns out there was no gun and no shield.Reply Retweet Favorite

..@elliottjustin eventually this story is going to morph into OBL begging for his life and an assassination style killing.Reply Retweet Favorite

I went and read the "top 5 facts". I could immediately disprove #2. The Congressional Budget Office publishes these figures, back to 1979 (after adjustment for inflation).

The top 1% collected 19.4% of national income, not 24.5% as the article claimed. While that may seem to be a small error, it leaves out something very important: the income for the top 1% tends to be heavily concentrated in capital gains, rather than wage and dividends.

And in case you didn't realize it: those capital gains could have just as easily been capital losses. If you lose your job, your income stops until you get another. If you take a loss on an investment, you end up with less money than when when you started.

Examining the data over the past three decades reveals that the top 1%'s share of national income varies wildly, as the economy goes through boom and bust cycles:

Note that the latest comprehensive data is for 2007. The CBO published this report in June, 2010. They haven't published an update this year that would presumably include 2008.

As you may remember, 2007 was a pretty good year, at least for the stock market. Then, the bottom fell out in 2008.

Should the left get what it wants, we won’t have to worry about upward mobility, middle class or wealth. There will be the ruling elite and the poor. Most of the Occupy terrorists will fit into the latter category.

How do they reconcile the “Rich are evil” cry with the “and why can’t I be rich too?” whine?
