The Top 1% In Each State

A little perspective on the evil 1% in each state. In Arkansas, you can get there with $228K. Sure, that may sound like "a whole lot" to a bunch of you, but consider that for the vast number of people that hit that lofty "top 1%", it is for a year or a few years at most. Perhaps they had a stock that did really well, got some significant award or bonus from work -- or got "bought out" so they are not likely to be working for the same amount of money for awhile, if ever.

While the "malefactors of great wealth" get LOTS of abuse these days, you don't fly around in a private jet on $228-$500K or so even if you make it for a FEW years!

American has always allowed you to hate these horrible folks all you want. What is new in this non-Constitutional mobocracy is that now it is perfectly legitimate to loot any amount wished up to ALL OF IT from these nasty high earning beasts!

In olden times, we used to have "Nursery Rhymes" like the "The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs" in which even small children learned that when the envious or greedy decided that they would cut open the "Goose" to get it all right now, they discovered that they destroyed the natural order of things and they ceased to receive the bounty they were already receiving.

But I'm certain there is no lesson there for the rush to socialism we see today!
