The Shrinking Pay Gap
New numbers from the CBO showing income levels from 2007-2009 show that the dreaded pay gap in the US is shrunk at a rapid rate. So while our economy tanks because of the incompetence of our elected leaders you can take comfort in the fact that the rich are no longer getting richer and are in fact getting poorer faster than anyone. We can finally get rid of that horrible income inequality problem.
It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken
