Wealth Inequality in America


I came across this video about Wealth Inequality in America. At this point, it had 5,687,605 views, 55,594 likes and 2,787 dislikes.

It is not a remarkable documentary, but it is worth watching. It starts as a puzzle and ends as one. We can see what is happening, but we are not given much help to understand why.

I saw several short Youtube videos about Sweden, also recalling a Pat Condell commentary on it. I will not pick any video; just search Youtube for Islam in Sweden to get an idea what Muslims are doing to it.
Then I watched parts of Barack Hussein Obama’s and Mohamed Morsi’s UN speeches.

All of this (especially the documentary) left me with a number of questions:

Dazed and confused


Maybe I should not do too much research. I have enough to talk about as it is.

Yet again, I started with a clear idea. In the end, not only was I not able to get to it but ended up dazed and confused by the idea storm. I just gave up for the day. Let me guide you through the experience. Read more of this post
