Taking control of truth in labels: We have branded the Reagan approach to the economy as "trickle down". In truth, a more approapriate label would be "tinkle on". I think the mental picture as well as the reality of what happens to those of us under the trickle is completely accurate. Maybe other readers could come up with more truthful labels on other topics that could be used as campaign messages.

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
