"Today, the richest 400 Americans have more wealth than the bottom 150 million of us put together. Now, think about it. 400 people have more wealth than half the population of the United States." — Robert Reich, Inequality For All

The Right Wing loves their “characters”. You see it in their wannabe hunters and cowboys on TV, and in politics. #Reagan #WBush #Palin
A shorter Tea Party/Right Wing: white males can do no wrong.

“We’re actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front. If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”
— Former Arizona sheriff and gun-wielding, self-proclaimed patriot,” Richard Mack, on his “strategy” to fight the U.S. government while defending deadbeatCliven Bundywomen should be the first ones shot in order to send the most effective message.   (via odinsblog)

It’s not a matter of working harder. The 40-hour work week vs capital gains and the ability to leverage one’s wealth at multiples is not comparable. The ability to hide earnings and lower tax expenditures clearly favors the very wealthy.
We have created a system that burdens the middle classes and gives the corporations/top 1% benefits that do not help our economy. The earnings for shareholders trumps all humanity and the incentive to invest in jobs/infrastructure has been reduced to near zero. 
Why spend any of your under-taxed profits when you can hide it off-shore?

“I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea that CNN’s reporters actually asked marketing experts whether a reviled hate group can rebrand — you know, way to legitimize the group’s existence in the first place, guys! Why not just ask, is there a way to make anti-Semitism more palatable? Is there an upside to White power? Should we bring back town square lynchings? I mean, for crissakes. That’s what you idiots are really asking. There are not two sides to racism and bigotry!”

Bundy vs. the Minimum wage

gwydionmisha:

I see Republicans are out lauding a wealthy white tax cheat as “a real patriot” while out the other side of their mouth labeling the working poor who pay a forth of their income in taxes as “takers” not deserving of a living wage or health coverage.
