I beg you, to take the time to watch the Bill Moyers show in this link.
Bill's guests -- Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson, authors of Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer -- And Turned Its Back on the Middle Class, argue that America's vast inequality is no accident, but in fact has been politically engineered.

What the authors found: "it's not the haves versus the have-nots. It's the have-it-ALLS versus the RESTof Americans! And those have-it-alls, which are households in the top one-tenth of one percent of the income distribution, the richest one-in-a-thousand households are truly living in an unparalleled age."
Watch this...make the time! if we want our kids to have a future, we must know the reality at a time when spin and falsehoods replaced journalism and the social contract which is our Constitution is being re-written behind closed doors.
