Check out the Time, Jan. 9, 2012, page 14 article, “Where the 1% Lives. Areas with large wealth gaps have more unstable economies” The charts show the inequity income gap has grown substantially in the past 20 years.
I have spent time in Mexico. People who think it is great to have very rich and very poor should go there and have a good look at the results. Then rethink mindless greed. Thirty or 40 years ago, the well off seemed quite comfortable with a much smaller income gap.
Economic engines run on combustible fuel. Am all in for mining combustible fuel. No alternative is available, electric require combustible fuel or nuclear energy. Time to mine or fail. And of course the environweenies and many of our representatives and the zer0 want America to fail. Therefore we fail or we defeat those wanting America to fail. Though the enemy surrounds us, the enemy hasn’t yet grasped their defeat is nigh. Can see 2012 from this house.
