Bloomberg News floored me this morning!

They are running a feature on wealth in the world. Today they compared the wealth of government members in China and America.

The billionaires club is now in the legislature of China. The top 70 members are worth 89.9 billion dollars.

660 US politicians in Congress, the President and his cabinet and the Supreme Court Members are worth 7.5 billion. The richest US member of this group would be number 40 in the Chinese legislature.

Yikes! This is disturbing.

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows
