Yes, it’s the corporations. It’s the FED. It’s the mayor. It’s the industry.

“If you wake up In the morning and blame your failure on someone or something else, you have no reason to change, do you? But if you woke up in the morning and said, I am failing because of ME. The decisions I make. The energy I bring. If you look in the mirror and say that you WILL change, because NOBODY likes thinking of themselves as a failure.

But as long as you don’t put it on yourself, you have no motivation to change. In short, if you don’t own your failures, you can’t own your success. The common denominator of failure is excuses.”

Ah, that makes sense, so now I'm curious about their income, and whether is comes out essentially the same and a game of semantics, or markedly different.

I worked for Jobs. I knew Jobs. You are 100% wrong. I also knew Raskin, Atkinson, Markkula (the grown up who really built the company while Steve & Steve were public faces), Sculley, Gassée, Spindler, & Amelio.

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

The economy is booming.
The middle-class is expanding and surging.
Employment data show employment is at all-time highs.
Unemployment is extremely low.
People who want to work can find good-paying, high-quality jobs just about anywhere across the Nation.
Total compensation is up, up, up.

There will always be some self-important low-level functionaries who lack job skills (including the ability to articulate a coherent thought, let alone the ability to spell) and who also lack the ability to internalize the blame for their own failings, instead blaming "The Man" for their own career failures, proclaiming such on social media.

You may even know someone like that.

But for the rest of us, life is good.

Whoops. My bad.

It was reported Friday morning (2/22/2019) on CNBC (tv). They had a segment on it, and displayed the data I copied down to put in my original post. There are no typos in the data in the post. There was a fair bit of discussion on-air. I believe the source was the Tax Policy Center.

You have some serious talk radio exposure to form such an opinion about the world outside of your bunker. It is the human farm, some free range human cattle is better fed than the other cattle, but the farm top 1% runs cannot operate if all the cattle is well fed, impossible. The rumors about "boom" greatly exaggerated.

The last presidential election cycle, along with the overwhelming Republican wins at all levels, make it pretty clear that the country isn’t ready to go socialist. Your hoped for malcontent utopia is a loooong way off.

The quality of your report or clear lack of it, indicates that this thread should be moved to the politics and controversy forum so that those without economic training can quickly agree with it.
I know that statistics is hard, but nothing in the post you quoted needs to add to 100%.
