Can you provide a link?

 

I copied and pasted the graph relating to the thread title which is about 2/3 of the way down on this link and it actually posted in full - just the graph in living color. For some reason, it became a bad link:

Here it is again and I see it in this post at this time:

Hurry, someone tell me that they see it too!!!!

I saw it in your link. Not sure what your point is in posting this. Is this supposed to be proof that we need to increase taxes on CEOs or cap CEO salaries? To me, this graph seems to contradict the agenda that you're usually pushing.

Uhm yeah thats what I was thinking. I at first thought it was going to be a right wing blog posting opposite numbers or something. Reaganomics baby trickle down, trickle down. Unfortunatly it doesn't and people are generally self-absorbed. Its human nature.
