Greg Russak‘s insight:

Amazingly clear and detailed “view” of where wealth is concentrated. Drilling into zip codes shows remarkable details without being overwhelming. This is simultaneously revealing and mesmerizing. As I looked at it, I couldn’t help wondering how and why it is that the people living in the vast “dark” regions of the South and the Great Plains insist on voting against their own economic self-interests by voting for representatives who insist on the lie of trickle-down economics and persistent austerity as the strategy for prosperity.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
