On the other hand

So far, this blog hasn't been blessed with much in the way of comments, but we got a doozy this afternoon.

Check out the first (and at the time of this posting) only comment on this post.

Just go ahead and read as much of it as you can before getting bored. The start of the final paragraph, though, I think is illuminating:
A word for those who respond with the usual 'I know more than you. Look how smart, knowledgable, and articulate I am' crap. Let me say this in advance. I don't claim to be an expert in this field.
In other words: "I know how things really are, don't confuse me with the facts!"

Here's a simple question:

Pick the same "impoverished" place on the economic scale, how about right on the line of the bottom 10% of income--meaning 10% of the people in this country make less than you, and 90% make more.

If you had that income and a time machine, would choose to go back to the "better" 1980's, or would you rather stay in 2008?
