Speaking of Scapegoats...

Yesterday we had a good discussion about income inequality and the futility of the lower 99% of the country fighting it out amongst themselves whenever hard economic times hit instead of looking at the source of the problem (the top 1%).  John Stewart and the folks over at the Daily Show must have heard us talking because yesterday's clip hits the nail on the head:

Why do Republicans insist that the lower 99% need to tighten their belts during hard times and refuse to look at the top 1%?
Are our teachers "overpaid" state workers if they make $50k a year and have $25k in benefits?
Are the Democrats guilty of waging "class warfare?" 
Do the Banks actually create jobs?
