"Income inequality is continuing to set records, and the Waltons are emblematic of this trend. Just last week it was reported that the top 1% of U.S. earners took home 19.3% of household income last year.

This is the highest proportion in a century; we have officially surpassed Great Depression-era levels of income concentration at the top. For the other 99% of Americans, household income went up a whopping 1% in 2012."

“No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country.”

Obama's disapproval rating is 53%. The only thing that saves him is that the Congress' disapproval rating is around 74%.

If Obama is a socialist lefty, then Herbert Hoover was Mao Tse Tung. The only thing that Obama has in common with a real progressive politician like Franklin Roosevelt is that they are both 'traitors to their class.' Obama is corporate product, a brand.
