This has been appearing in posts for years.
As far as the "Rich get richer, the poor get poorer", this has happened since Adam and Eve, no matter under which Government or entity that was controlling the people.
The poor always want to get rich, and the rich don't want to get poor.
It will be that way as long as humans inhabit the earth.
Puh. Of course it has. But consider this:
The people running the country — the ones with the real clout, whether Democrats or Republicans — are all part of the power elite. Ordinary people may be struggling, but both the Obama administration and the Republican Party leadership are down on their knees slavishly kissing the rings of the financial and corporate kingpins.
I love when the wackos call President Obama a socialist. Wasn’t it his budget director, Peter Orszag, who moved effortlessly from his job in the administration to a hotshot post at Citigroup, beneficiary of tons of government largess? And didn’t the president’s new chief of staff, William Daley, arrive in his powerful new post fresh from the executive suite of JPMorgan Chase? And isn’t the incoming chairman of Mr. Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness very conveniently the chairman and chief executive of General Electric, Jeffrey Immelt? (If that's Socialistic then I missed something somewhere.)
You might ask: Who represents working people? The answer, as Tevye would say with grave emphasis in “Fiddler on the Roof,” is, “I don’t know.”
I'll provide an answer to that "who knows." No one is representing the rights of you, me, the great Middle Class in this country. As he said above, they're too busy kissing the ring, and other parts, of our owners.

This has been a constant complaint since the beginning of civilization. After 5,000 years something tells me it will be the same for another 5,000 years. The biggest danger is not the "gap" between rich and poor, it`s the Marxists and other utopians who want everyone to be equally poor. Because it`s more "fair" that way.
