Rich:

'The study comes from the Congressional Budget Office and is based on IRS and Census Bureau data.
It finds that after-tax income for the top 1 percent of U.S. households almost tripled, up 275 percent, from 1979 to 2007. For people in the middle of the economic scale, after-tax income grew by just 40 percent.'

comparing these filthy squatters (25 TONS of debris) to the 1960s civil rights movement is insulting and degrading.

Pagan,
so - since I moved from a studio to a 3 bedroom apartment I can complain because you moved from a 2600 SF house to a 4200 SF house? I should DEMAND that you move down to an 1800 SF house and I should get an 1800 SF house, too - at your expense?

your own quote says the middle class are better off by 40% than they were in 1979.

BO's done a great job increasing the number of poor, hasn't he? You surprise me, I thought you'd be campaigning FOR BO, but here you are, pointing out how disastrous he's been.
