1. K/R. Watch at the 2:30 mark, rich guy unzips and "trickles down" on the middle class.

It's subtle but you can hear the sound effect of the thing and the rich guys posture gives it away.

3. It's the Big Picture explained in the most simplistic way...

I'm sure little kids will understand it very well.

Unfortunately, most adults will continue giving their eyes and ears to the sock puppet politicians whose job it is, to throw up smoke and mirrors, and tell it in ways that can't be understood.

The truth is often simple, believing it seems to be the hard part!

4. awesome!

They should run this all over TV- might be too long to run the whole thing as an ad, though... Everyone should see this!

5. Rich people don't only own most of the politicians...

They also own most of the TV channels that most of the uniformed people watch.

That's why the Main Stream Media is called the "M$M". Furthermore, they tell most people what to think, and who to vote for, and most people do exactly that.

7. My wife would be willing to show this

to her high school civics classes - if it just didn't have the "trickle down" bit in it. THAT would be unacceptable to school policy - however innocent an example it might be. The kids would love that, of course - but if one kid related the bit to a finicky parent.... all hell would break loose.

9. Your post reminded me

of a couple of times in the classroom when I coughed loudly to cover up a bad word or two in a video that otherwise was totally ok and even excellent for student viewing.

10. When I was in high school

We had a history teacher who would produce a handkerchief to cover her mouth while she cleared her throat. This would be during periods when she wasn't lecturing. It was well known that she was just trying to eat a piece of candy without being detected.

11. I always thought that what I did was undetected, but.....

who knows? Those 5th/6th graders were pretty sharp.
