I think these are all great, except the one about transportation infrastructure. That doesn't have any visual interpretation of data, and no sources for their projections.

I saw this on Betty's FB, and it definitely belongs here.

Herman Cain is the worst about it, but every single Republican candidate this year wants to lower the tax on the wealthy and raise the tax on the poor.

I will have to check on the source on that map, I'll check later today and let you know.

Those show that tuition costs are rising a lot faster than inflation and that public funding has gone down, but what are the incomes doing?


Oh. Well at least when debt forces those new grads into bankruptcy student loan tuition can't be negotiated in bankruptcy filings!

Thanks to JRB for linking me this:

Patient advocates and doctors are worried about the lax regulations on medical devices "particularly in light of some all-metal artificial hips that are failing prematurely at an unusually high rate." This summer, Representative Erik Paulsen (R) Minnesota made a speech about how the FDA should have fewer safety regulations.

The average cost of winning a House election is $1.4M

I like that the primary argument they have for easing the process is that it's an economic challenge.  Who cares if they're safe, we're losing tons of money here you fuckers!

So, opinion check here.

Do you guys think the US is as fucked up, inequality-ridden, and inhabited with more down-trodden worker drones compared to other developed nations as these graphs seem to suggest, or do you think it's just clever manipulation of data?

Just asking, 'cos over here I have 5 weeks paid holiday, work < 40 hours a week for a good salary, and if I suddenly transmogrify into a woman, I'd be entitled to 6 months paid maternity leave too!

I could definitely get behind those wonderful things, Wibble, but for the time being, benefits at that level just sound sort of weird to me. Unfamiliar, not undesirable. I work ten, maybe eleven hours, but it starts early in the morning so I still have long evenings at home. I had six weeks of maternity leave, my salary is livable as a single income with a tight budget. I don't feel like a drone at all, yet I believe these comparisons have not been manipulated, and my statistical place is planted squarely in the middle of every group for which I feel compassion on these charts. Our brains default to content, I suppose.

Enjoy the time off, Wibble, rub it in why don't you.
