America has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the prison population - I still find it hard to believe this onslaught against its own non-white people


In case you didn't get it from the last post

1 in 87 working-aged white men is in prison or jail compared with 

1 in 36 Hispanic men, and 

1 in 12 African-American men.


Even more shocking

America has 5% of the world's population and

25% of the prison population (mostly young black men)




Oh Dear God and this is the wealthiest nation on earth

the land of the free

home of the American Dream!


and the mega-rich

can now console themselves with the idea that

the poor are poor because they have failed to

generate sufficient will-power


They will tell you it has nothing to do with the fact that - 

 The richest 400 Americans have more wealth than 

half of all American households combined

and yet their tax rate has fallen 

by about half in the past 20 years. 



Mr Obama what are you doing?
