  •  I've been wondering and wondering (14+ / 0-)

    what would happen to the USA if the 1% suddenly up and disappeared.  For the life of me, I can't see how it would make all that much difference.  We'd be just fine.

    Then I think about what would happen if a whole bunch of the rest of us--somewhere between 47% and 99%--were to go missing.  Where would that leave the 1%?  I'm guessing they'd be extinct before the ice caps finish melting.  Is that what happened to Atlas?

      If the managers at the sanitation department go on Strike, hardly anybody notices.

      But if the garbage men or truck drivers go on strike, it's a disaster.

      Same with sewer workers, bus drivers, power plant workers.

      Let them go on strike, and it's a major problem.

      Let the managers go on strike, and hardly anybody notices.

      Says a lot about who's REALLY important, doesn't it?
