    Turns out, the rich really are getting richer. And they'll soon own more than the rest of us put together. So says a new report, which estimates that the richest 1 percent will have as much wealth as the other 99 percent combined by next year. "The richest 1 percent have seen their share of global wealth increase from 44 percent in 2009 to 48% in 2014," Oxfam says in a report Monday.

    This is why you have to just shake your head when people say Obama is doing a great job because, the stock market!

    Anybody that has a clue knows that the damage being done to pump those numbers far outweighs the gains....

    multigenerational wealth by and large is a liberal myth. the average inheritance of over $1 million lasts a generation and a half.

    Yes because government knows so well how to spend another mans money. All our problems will be solved when government hi jacks people's own money.

    Poor people suck. We should have a special jail where we lock up all of the people who make less than 2x the federal poverty level.
