http://www.measureofamerica.org/ & WOW is there some appalling stuff about the so-called "world's only superpower," if anyone cares. Here are some tidbits that stood out for the British media: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-american-nightmare-of-inequality-869736.html & there are many more on the report's website here: http://www.measureofamerica.org/2008-2009-report/factoids/ I wonder what they would find if they included the US media in their research. Maybe they'd find that this report would never be covered by the American media. I couldn't find anything about it on the AP wire, UPI wire or CNN. I didn't look very hard beyond those but maybe some obscure alternative-media site with a couple hundred readers, or a public-access show picked it up. All that free-market crap sure seems self-serving. I never hear many poor people saying the government should get off their backs.
