Two Interesting Links

Sites That My Republican Friends
Should Probably Avoid

1 Red/Blue Maps of the US 2004-2006

2 Nothing is Sure But Debt and Taxes
"Between 1970 to 2001, the U.S. economy more than doubled in size. But working people didn’t see any of the benefits of this huge increase in wealth. Over the three decades leading up to 2000, the 90 percent of U.S. households on the bottom end of the income ladder saw no increase at all in income on average, after adjusting for inflation.
The top ten percent, on the other hand, nearly doubled their income on average over the 30 years. "
