Over the past 40 years, through effective lobbying. We have seen a major shift in this country’s distribution of wealth. The wealthiest Americans’ share of the economic pie has ballooned at the expense of working and middle class Americans. For example, the top 0.1 percent of Americans have seen their slice of the economic pie grow from 2.7 percent to 12.3 percent of income since the 1970s while the middle class has seen virtually no improvement. Income for the top 1 percent has increased from around 8 percent to more than 18 percent. One more: in 1965, the average CEO of a large corporation in America made 24 times the earnings of their workers. By 2007, average CEO salary was rising close to 300 times the average worker’s salary. I don’t think the media does a good enough job highlighting the real struggles of Americans who just can’t make it in America. There is economic class warfare in this country, and the rich are winning. That’s just a fact, and it should be reported as such.

While we realize that Tumblr is responding to angry users, their Content Policy states “If you are found to be in violation of any of the below policies, you will receive a notice via email. Unless you explain or correct your behavior within 72 hours, your account will be suspended.” We’re not even sure if it breaks the hate content rule since it was posted in jest and especially considering the fact that we’ve posted many pro-gay posts in the past.
CAPTCHArt received no email, and as far as we know, nobody who reblogged received any emails either. What’s up Tumblr?
Well, that was a fun experiment. My free trial’s up and I’m not going to subscribe, so The Daily: Indexed is over. Over on Waxy.org, I wrote up a post explaining how I generated the indexes from the iPad app… If anyone out there wants to take it over, let me know! — Andy.
