Money wont get you into Society
It’s visual whiplash. The soft lines and gentle colors lure you in, then—pow!—the subject matter hits you with unexpected force.
I miss you.
I miss how we first met,
I miss how we got close,
I miss the good times,
I even miss the bad times,
I miss our first kiss,
I miss our “I love you more” fights,
I miss your smile,
I miss your laugh,
I miss how much you cared,
I miss how much you loved me like no one else had,
I miss our love.
I messed it up.
It’s my fault.
It’s my bad.
I know your happy now,
But please give me another chance.
I miss you.
It’s been a day since I lost you.
I was staring at the wall and thought “I’ll be okay”
Then burst into tears and missed you even more
Because I don’t want to be okay.
I don’t want to be happy, content, okay, neutral, sad or depressed;
I don’t care what I am.
I just care what you are
And something you aren’t anymore

If it feels like the rich are getting richer and the majority of Americans are falling behind, well…that’s because it’s true!
A new study published by the Russell Sage foundation found that wealth inequality in America roughly doubled between 2003 and 2013.
In 2003, the top 20% Americans had 13 times more wealth than the median household. By 2013, this gap nearly doubled to 24 times.
Yes, that’s right, the inequality gap doubled in 10 years! Double the pleasure! Double the fun…especially for the wealthy!
The upside of an expanding wealth gap is that means there’s more money for the ‘haves’ to leave to their kids when they go to that great country club in the sky.
And inherited wealth is a GOOD thing, according to Gregory Mankiw an economics professor at Harvard, who used a lot of of econo-speak to make the case: let’s hear it for Intergenerational altruism! Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Consumption smoothing! Makniw also notes it’s natural for wealthy parents to want to share the booty with their children (Sting, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates among the notable exceptions.)
And the rest of us benefit too, he writes, arguing “their accumulation of capital raises our productivity, wages and living standards.”
In related news, the Commerce Department announced that Tuesday is national “Thank a Rich Person Day” where Americans in the bottom 20% are encouraged to find someone in the top 20% and let them know just how much they appreciate everything that’s trickling down…
