Graphs to help you understand income inequality and other problems we face

Yesterday, Obama gave his greatest speech so far on the problem of income inequality in this country.  In their March/April issue, the editors of MotherJones provided a series of charts explaining the nature of income inequality in America today.  If you have not seen these charts, take a look and share them with your Republican friends.  If you are not concerned about the serious problem these charts reveal, you should be. 

For some more charts that should make you boiling mad, go here and get the picture of what it is really like to be an average guy or gal trying to work in America today and make enough to take care of themselves and their family.  It is not a pretty picture.  It is just plain WRONG.
