    Another reason to love our Great President Barack Obama

    He's a Rich White Republican in disguise.

    If you are one of the 1%, please, let President Obama know just how grateful you are to him.

    Top 1 percent in US took biggest share since 1928
    Richest 1 percent of Americans collected biggest share of household income since 1928

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The income gap between the richest 1 percent and the rest of America last year reached the widest point since the Roaring Twenties.

    The top 1 percent of U.S. earners collected 19.3 percent of household income in 2012, their largest share since 1928. And the share held by the top 10 percent of earners last year reached a record 48.2 percent.

    Last year, the incomes of the top 1 percent rose nearly 20 percent compared with a 1 percent increase for the remaining 99 percent.

    The top 10 percent haven't done badly, either. Last year, they captured 48.2 percent of income, up from the previous record, 46.6 percent, in 2011.

    The top 1 percent of American households had income above $394,000 last year. The top 10 percent had income exceeding $114,000.

      Fed Stimulus Boosts Fortunes of Wall Street, Leaves Main Street Behind

      You've likely seen it a thousand times before. "My parents went to wherever and all I got was this lousy T-shirt." As clichéd as this slogan may be, it's a characterization that many feel applies perfectly to the Fed, which has spent trillions of dollars restoring Wall Street to pre-crisis levels while doing almost nothing to improve the standing of 95% of the population that resides on Main Street.

      "Main Street is a long way from back," says Simon Baker, the CEO of Baker Ave. Asset Management, in the attached video. "If the question is, 'Is Main Street happy?' I don't think so," Baker protests.

      He refers to the Fed's ongoing stimulus efforts as "a massive, $3.7 trillion redistribution of wealth" that has only benefited banks and financial firms, as well as the wealthiest 5% of the country that holds real assets such as stocks and real estate.

      "They're the ones benefiting," he says, "not Main Street."

      For Baker, there is no stronger evidence than the correlation seen between the rise of the Fed's QE spending and the S&P 500's four year jaunt to record highs.

      "(QE) is not encouraging banks to do more loans, and it's not encouraging people to hire more folks," Baker says. "So it's not helping Main Street," where he points to flat wages and stagnant wealth as the primary indicators of the widening gap between the super-rich and the rest of us.

      by solyndrafiasco • Jul 22, 2013 11:23 PM

      President Obama may currently be calling on the states to review their respective “stand your ground” gun laws, but he wasn’t always so opposed to the right-to-carry rule.
      In 2004, while a senator in Illinois, he co-sponsored legislation that allowed for the same rights.
