  1. This tells you only half the story – the other half lies in the other 30 years before 1979 – a story that has been conveniently omitted!

  2. I notice that the 1% declined under Bush & Reagan… and improved under Clinton–and even Obama the corporatist/pseudo-socialist/reformer of “business as usual”/”man of the people” (yeah right).
