Looking for common ground

Vagabond Scholar has a clever series of charts examining the differences between Democrats and Republicans. As always, the chart comparing wealth in the U.S. is shocking:


I wholeheartedly agree with VS's comment on the graph: "I can find common ground with people who recognize that plutocracy and democracy don't mix."

Check Krugman's blog this past week. He's had some interesting things to say about morality and wealth.

Bottom line: there is no common ground with regressives. They literally populate a different universe, with no only different natural laws, but a different concept of what is ethical.

And they have guns.

I bet the foreclosures and the recession have made wealth even more skewed now than they were in 2007.
