    In America 99% of the nations wealth is owned by around 1% of it's population.

    That's how it is in most industrial countries, or in fact, in most countries anywhere.

    I'm still trying to figure out why this post was made...

    Was there a reason you felt you needed to share your amazing insight into the world and its economic workings?

    south africa is an exception, with karny being a rich fuck there who can afford a ps2, gamecube, and sega systems, which he paid with little girls he had traded in for food.

    Alternatively, 1% of America's wealth is owned by 99% of the population... which is much scarier wording.

    LOL no the thing is i was bored. i don't give a #### about post numbers and if you don't believe me you can always set my post number at zero perm it doesn't matter. Why did i post this pure boredom that and pointing out the obvious is needed sometimes; but it's mainly boredom.

    And 99% of the people who post on this board are idiots.

    Inversely, 1% of the people who post on this board are NOT idiots. However, that does NOT mean that they are intelligent.

    I feel compelled to mention Sturgeon's Law here, but I can't think of a clever way to do it.

    Actually, I think it's the top 1% owns 90% of the wealth. GRRR stimulus package.

    How about everyone just give all their money and all their wealth to me and I will ensure that everyone receives a fair portion and is happy? :)

    Actually all of the Nations money is owned ny the Gov. A "Federal Reserve Note" as it says on US currency, is actually a reciept. A reciept for what you may ask? Well for the gold we supposedly have in Ft Knox, but I dare one of you to go there and ask to get your gold...lol, lets see how fast they pull a gun on you. Heres another scary fact...sorta

    1.3 Billion - The number of obese people in the world

    1.3 Billion - The number of undernourished people in the world.

    Strange.

    so, basically, if the fat people donated some of their food to the starving people, we could all be taken care of and no one would be fat!!!

    (i know thats oversimplification [is that a word?], but oh well. if only we could make it happen...)
