Y'know, this socialist workers' paradise conservatives promised me Obama would deliver ...

... is sure taking its own sweet time to get here.

Incomes rose more than 11 percent for the top 1 percent of earners during the economic recovery, but not at all for everybody else, according to new data.

(Wait. There was an economic recovery?)

The numbers, produced by Emmanuel Saez, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley, show overall income growing by just 1.7 percent over the period. But there was a wide gap between the top 1 percent, whose earnings rose by 11.2 percent, and the other 99 percent, whose earnings declined by 0.4 percent.

This calls for something more than a sternly worded blog post. It's time for ... class warfare!

'Top One Percent Horror Films' | Panel 1: 'You thought they were a myth, but Socialist Hobos have invaded Wall Street!' | Panel 2: 'Watch in TERROR as these strange creatures annoy decent rich folks!!!' Shows one of the latter being accosted by two of the former, one of whom says, 'Your chef will burn your toast slightly until you pay slightly higher taxes.' Richie Rich says, 'NOOOOOO! Mitt Romney, save me!'

It'll be a leaderless people's revolution that will usher in the socialist paradise. No top-down solutions.
