Great video! Thanks for posting. I published it on AN's homepage today along with a link to this topic.

In fairness here's a couple of rebuttals to the statistics in the video. Frankly I along with many others see what's happening in this country and around the world. There's no question that things are screwed up along these lines. Still, let's give them their say...

No one can know the absolute facts about all income at any given moment. There are soooo many variables. I do agree with that, but don't agree with a lot of stuff the dude critiquing the first video says. Besides, to me it seems like it's pretty much to the point where you don't need any charts and graphs to realize what goes on with the ultra rich people who are above the law and siphoning most of the money into their pockets. Money that will most likely never be returned back to anyone's economy.
