20% of Americans pay 90% of all federal income taxes.

infinite-paradox:

Not ok. Bleh.

Well, considering that the top 1% controls 43% of the wealth alone this makes a great deal of sense.  Add in the fact that the next 4% control 29% and you have the top 5% of people controlling 72% of the wealth in the US. One can easily see that even before throwing in the next 15% why the majority of taxes are paid by the top 20%.  These wealthy folks are not oppressed.  Stop.

Secret Service agents on Obama detail sent home from Netherlands after night of drinking

shortformblog:

Secret Service agents know how to party:

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of the agents was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said.

The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included the agency’s director, Julia Pierson.

Good work, dudes.

YOU HAD ONE JOB!
