"It is really sad that less than 1% of America families are wealthy.

Makes me part of the 99% and not exactly sympathetic to the 1%"


I'm not so sure that makes sense.

If nearly everyone made $500,000 a year, it would likely mean that you had 100% inflation for five years......and a loaf of bread would cost $25 and a quart of milk $28, and gasoline $80 bucks a gallon.

Nearly all Americans are better off than 90% of all Chinese and 95% of all Indians and 99% of most 3rd world countries.


Yeah...well, with only 1% making more than $500,000 each and every year, and more than 20% of them falling in/out of that category each year..... it's at the top ....the very top.


So? You really object to 'only' making $100,000 a year? Or $200,000 a year?

I'm surprised you find that so terrible.

oh, poor little you!
