Connect The Dots.

Let's see if you have figured this out yet or are one of those complete idiots that I wrote about the other day, shall we?

Stop and take a minute and remember all the financial horror stories you have heard about in the last five years.

Greece, Spain, Ireland, the entire European Union, the record number of forclosures,the record number of people on food stamps,the record number of people who can't find a job, The TARP bailouts, The rigging of the LIBOR rate,the refusal by the Obama administration to prosecute Wall Street criminals, Too Big To Fail, all of it.

Remember that shit?

Now get a load of this new statistic;

There Are 85 People Who Are As Wealthy As Half The WORLD, Oxfam Reports

Worldwide economic inequality is looking rather bleak these days, according to a new report by relief organization Oxfam.

Oxfam's "Working For The Few" report looked at Credit Suisse's "Global Wealth Report 2013" and Forbes' list of the world's billionaires from 2013 to conclude that 1 percent of the global population controls half of the world's wealth.

The report also found that the world's 85 richest people own the same amount as the bottom half of the entire global population.

My emphasis.

This didn't happen by accident.

Do you fucking get it yet?!
