    A World Bank economist is trying to shame the U.S. for being home to one half of the world's richest people, the so-called 1%. In reality, it's the world that should be red-faced for not creating wealth as America does.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Nothing in anybody's world is their own fault, as long as there's at least one other person in the world, it'll forever be "the other guy's fault"

    Hey if this means that we can blame the Packers for making the other NFL teams look bad last year, I am all for it. :D
