Subject: RE: BS: Walmart Workers Strikes...
The Krinkx has just spouted Boss Hog's mantra...

Reality is that when I grew up everyone lived in the same moderate houses... CEOs, Congrssmen, managers, truck driver, bakers, bankers, salesmen, cops, etc... We didn't have mansions... We didn't have this massive income inequity... The last time this country saw this kind of income inequity was in the 1890s with the robber barons...

Boss Hog loves to cry, "We're broke"... No, we are not broke at all... If you take the GNP and spread it around equally there is enough for every man, woman and child to have an annual income of $80,000... Hey, who couldn't live on that... Man and wife = $160,000 a year... Man, wife and 1 child = $240,000...

No, we're not broke at all... We are rich... Well, not we... The upper 1% are dripping rich... I mean, chokin' on cash...
